Sony Expects PS5 Stock To Be Tight Until Next Year

We’ve seen stock hitting Australia more frequently, although still selling out instantly as it did with the latest EB Games drop this morning, and this looks set to continue until next year.

We know that the PS5 has been the fast selling console to date, and Sony says that it expects stock to remain tight until next year.

As reported by Bloomberg, Sony told analysts that it has been challenging to keep up with strong demand, and even if they’re able to produce more units of the PS5, the supply won’t be able to catch up with demand.

“I don’t think demand is calming down this year and even if we secure a lot more devices and produce many more units of the PlayStation 5 next year, our supply wouldn’t be able to catch up with demand,” Chief Financial Officer Hiroki Totoki said at the briefing.

“We have sold more than 100 million units of the PlayStation 4 and considering our market share and reputation, I can’t imagine demand dropping easily,” Totoki continued.

It was recently reported that Sony were looking to change up the chip in the PS5, with this likely being so that the company can cut costs on each unit produced and increase production.
