PS5 is the fastest-selling console; stock problems until 2022
Sony Interactive Entertainment is breaking many records with PlayStation 5. The only impediment to continue to overcome barriers and sales figures faster than previous generations is the stock. Last July we learned that PS5 is already the fastest-selling console in the history of the brand, reaching 10 million units in just nine months. A few days later the figure was further specified: 10.1 million units in total until June 30, 2021.
What’s more, its forecast for fiscal year 2022 (from April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023) is that PlayStation 5 will be able to break the brand’s annual sales record and place an additional 22.6 million units on the market. , thus exceeding the 22.6 million that the first PlayStation achieved in fiscal year 1998.
Whether he will succeed or not is something we do not yet know; To be able to determine it, you will not need a demand – which is, well above the current supply of consoles – but rather stock. Toshiba has warned, as AMD did months ago, that stock problems will not be solved until well into 2022 due to the current crisis in semiconductor materials. Chips are scarce and there are no units for all manufacturers of hardware, graphics cards, vehicles, smartphones … It is a situation that affects the entire technology market, not only that of video game consoles.
