Though it was launched last year, the Sony PlayStation 5 is facing a shortage in supply. Since its launch, the console has seen great demand across the globe, but this demand has met with a shortage in supply due to the global chip shortage.
The company stated that the shortage in supply is due to the manufacturing constraints faced because of the pandemic. However, Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO, Jim Ryan, said that the PS5 supply will resume the pace in the second half of this year.
Ryan further added that the demand for the PS5 was higher than they expected and that the complexities of the supply chain issues resulted in a lower supply.
The CEO believes that the supply will get better every month throughout 2021.
Similar to Sony, Microsoft is also struggling to keep up with the demand for its own consoles. Microsoft’s Vice President of Gaming, Phil Spencer, said that the company is also pushing AMD to supply more chips. Although, the supply chain constraints are expected to last till April 2021.
