Hardware news PS5 stocks: No increase in production in 2021?
The financials season has started, and Sony’s gaming division appears to be in great shape. With nearly 8 million PS5s distributed and therefore sold under the circumstances, Sony signs the best start of a home console. But is it possible to do better by March 2022?
Part of the answer can be found in a recent appeal to investors, as is customary after the results are released. According to VGC, who wrote down the most interesting passages on paper, Sony said its goal was to pass the bar of 14.8 million PS5 sold by the end of the next fiscal year. A number that is not chosen at random, since it corresponds to the number of PS4s distributed over the same period. Hiroki Totoki, chief financial officer of Sony, nevertheless wished to temper the ardor of the shareholders, indicating that the firm did not expect to end the shortage problem for good this year. To compensate, Sony is considering “various solutions”, which include modifications in terms of material used, and the search for additional suppliers.
As I said earlier, we are aiming for more sales volume than the PS4 (for the coming year. But can we significantly increase the supply? No, it is not likely. The shortage semiconductor is one factor, but there are other factors that will impact production volume, so right now we would like to exceed PS4 year two sales.
To cope with this famous shortage of semiconductors, which we have been talking about for almost a year and which affects all industries using electronics, Sony declares that it has solutions under study, including those mentioned above. , and hope be able to capitalize on its “flexibility”, in place since last year. We don’t know exactly what Sony is referring to, but obviously leaders found this flexibility to have had a very positive effect.
