PS5 has a clear and obvious problem with availability in stores e Sony he is perfectly aware of this, so much so that he is considering several options in order to improve the situation.
The scenario was repeated with the debut of the console in China, with the stocks of PS5 finished in just 20 minutes from the opening of the pre-orders, and it seems unlikely a change of course between now and the next months due to the well-known problems the availability of the semiconductors.
Hiroki Totoki, Sony’s chief financial officer, said it is currently impossible to increase the availability of PlayStation 5, but at least two viable solutions are on the horizon.
The first way, according to Totoki, is to find a secondary supplier for the components necessary for the production of the console. A search that we imagine has so far been unsuccessful, or that the Japanese company did not want to undertake.
The second way instead passes through a real rethinking of PS5, therefore a redesign of the platform carried out precisely in order to use materials more easily available at this time.
In short, there is the possibility that a possible PS5 Slim or in any case an aesthetic revision of the console makes its appearance ahead of its time, precisely to address these problems.
