News hardware PS5 – Stocks from the second half of the year according to Jim Ryan
After returning to the supply problems of the PlayStation 5 machine at the microphone of our colleagues at GQ, Jim Ryan, the president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, decided to speak in the Financial Times to respond once again to the question on everyone’s lips: “When will there finally be new stocks for the PlayStation 5?”
Since the launch of the Sony console last November, many players have been watching the restocking of the various stores to get their copy of the PlayStation 5, but in vain … The console of the Japanese manufacturer remains definitely difficult to own. Unfortunately, according to Jim Ryan, the situation is not about to change. The situation should improve over the months, but it is only from the second half of 2021 that the machine will be accessible to as many people as possible.
The situation should improve over the course of 2021. By the second half of the year, we should see some nice (sales) figures. But there aren’t many magic wands we can wave. Jim Ryan, au micro de Financial Times
Once again, this unfortunate situation is due to the supplier AMD which faces a very high demand for semiconductors, microprocessors and other graphics cards from manufacturers, including Sony and Microsoft. Lisa Su, the CEO of AMD, had also specified on January 28 that the market would remain tight throughout the first half of 2021.
As a reminder, the PlayStation 5 has already sold more than 4.5 million copies as of December 31 and despite the difficulty the manufacturer has in restocking the various stores, the Japanese giant remains confident about the future. The objective is therefore to beat the sales record of the PlayStation 4 in its first year which, as we recall, amounted to 14.9 million copies. For Jim Ryan therefore, the PlayStation 5 will achieve more than 15 million sales from November 19, 2021.
