Current COVID – 19 crisis has affected the global economy and the supply chain of products. However, Sony is in it to win it. The demand for Sony PS5 consoles has increased this year. There were doubts about the fulfillment of this target.
The latest report by Nikkei Asian Review suggests that the electronics giant isn’t stopping due to the pandemic situation. Sony is all set to deliver the 10 million Sony PS5 consoles before this year’s final quarter.
Sony PS5: The Increased Demand for Consoles
From the past few months, almost every corner of the world has been facing the COVID – 19 crisis. The crisis has forced us to maintain social distancing at the minimum and complete lockdown of the cities at worst.
Earlier, the speculators claimed that Sony’s PlayStation5 consoles are not going to catch demand higher than PlayStation4. Now the tables have turned. The demand for games, movies, music, and TV shows has increased during the quarantine period as almost everyone stays inside the home for longer times.
The necessity of entertainment is more than ever. That’s why the demand for Sony PS5 increased naturally. As per the sources, Sony was thinking of producing consoles from 5-6 million this year. The increased demand and pandemic crisis were significant factors affecting the production of so many units.
Although the COVID – 19 isn’t over yet, Sony has decided to cash this opportunity. The company will increase the production and assemble up to 10 million PS5 consoles by the end of 2020.
Sony PS5: Will it be a Game-Changer?
The Japanese news outlet Nikkei has reported the following regarding the production of the Sony PS5:
Meanwhile Sony, the world’s No. 2 video game console maker after Nintendo by shipments, has also raised production orders for its upcoming PlayStation 5 to around 9 million units, from the roughly 6 million units it had planned in spring, sources familiar with the matter said. The PlayStation 5 is the first completely new generation of the console in seven years, after the Japanese company launched the PlayStation 4 in 2013 and an upgrade in 2016.
If we consider Nikkei’s statement, the PlayStation will inevitably change the gaming experience for the consumers. New games with better gameplay and experience mean more PS5 sold in the market.
The main question is, will Sony deliver the promise it’s making to the consumers? If the COVID – 19 crisis gets over within the next few days, maybe we will be able to have a new PS5 in the market.
