The PS5 launched in November 2020, but supply problems and a global shortage of semiconductors have slowed production and getting hands on all new gaming beast is still dream for many.
As per latest reports,
‘The supply of chips will remain very tight until at least September next year,’ Toshiba’s Takeshi Kamebuchi. ‘In some cases, we may find some customers not being fully served until 2023.’
The news is not a particular surprise as Sony has already warned that the PlayStation 5 will continue to have stock problems well into next year, with Microsoft warning their shortages will last until at least April.
Intel has also cautioned that problems will continue for many months to come, thanks to material shortages and the pandemic creating a huge backlog.
Consoles are mentioned in the report but for Toshiba and others the current priority is the car industry, even as they have daily updates with console manufacturers such as Sony and Nintendo.
