Hiroki Totoki, chief financial officer at Sony Group, has announced that he expects the PlayStation 5 stock issues to persist into 2022. Totoki-san claims that Sony is struggling to meet the demand for the PS5 due to stock shortages for various components including semiconductors.
Here’s what Totoki-san had to say:
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.
