PlayStation 5 units are being made faster than ever before. However, the demand is a challenge for Sony to meet.
They arent able to build more then 200k ish a week. Even after 8 months after the launch. What i would like to know is how many would they be able to make monthly without Covid and the problems to get chips?
It means when people are able to get one, probably the system is already more than one year's old. I don't know how much time this generation will last, but time flies and no consoles at sight.
Don’t worry, there are no next gen games at the moment either :)
@acustomer Could you please tell us the characteristics that define a next gen game?
I would say without any restriction they would be able to make 1.5m consoles a month so more than half of what they are currently doing.
This is welcome news, but I bet they'll be hard to get for the rest of the year unless you're informed and bloody quick to act.
Which is basically how it's been since launch. I don't blame Sony or MS at all for this. But man it's really sucked.
I would rather hear increase in production than faster. Here's hoping faster does not mean decrease in quality control.
True dat. I don't want to see problems like PS3 Yellow Light of Death and the 360s infamous red ring of death.
let's hope the situation improves massively soon. I want my PS5 at retail price, Sony! all that is available in my area right now are scalper price PS5. the BD version going for $800 at the cheapest right now. but that too is being gobbled up very quickly by impatient gamers.
PlayStation Direct, turn on notifications, request an invite to buy. Won’t be instantaneous but when you get the invite, you will be able to buy no problem. Got mine in June at retail. Be online a minute before the time and have your payment information, etc ready to go on your account.
not so lucky here in South East Asia, bro.
And still none in sight.
So are the scalpers.
Lot's of PS5's for sale on Ebay.
