A new report from Bloomberg reveals that Sony believes that we can count on Playstation 5 shortcomings until next year. It is CFO Hiroki Totoki who states that demand is too high:

“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. 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.”

As we all know, it has been a challenge to get a Playstation 5 since its launch in November 2020 and scalping has been (and is) a problem. Despite the pandemic, however, Sony has managed to deliver enough devices to break its own record and a total of over 7.8 million units have been sold, which is more than Playstation 4 did at the same time.
