PlayStation 5 Shortage

PlayStation 5 Shortage
Analysts finally got data on sales of The PlayStation 5 game console, which allows you to understand how big the deficit of the console is. And now we can say for sure that the shortage is simply huge, because only in the first week of sales sold out 1 483 910 pieces of PlayStation 5! it should be recalled that at this time, the PlayStation 5 was sold in only six countries: the United States, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea.

It should be noted that, according to rumors, Sony planned to produce only 6 million consoles by the end of the year – and a fourth of this volume sold out in just a few days. Later, however, there was evidence that the production plan was increased to 10 million PS5 before the end of the year, but the geography of sales since November 19 has expanded significantly. In addition, in the United States, the entire demand for the PlayStation 5 has not yet been met, and in General, in many countries there is a shortage of consoles.

How big the demand for the PlayStation 5 is is easy to understand from sales of the Xbox Series X and Series S. in the first week, 1,345,386 of Microsoft's newest consoles were sold in both versions. This is really the" largest launch " for Xbox, because the previous record for Xbox One was recorded at 1.1 million units in the first week. However, you need to take into account that the Xbox Series X and Series S went on sale in 40 countries, and in total they sold fewer consoles than the PS5-in six countries.

Interestingly, not all countries of the first wave of the PS5 was as popular as its predecessor. For example, in the US, Australia and New Zealand, the new product really surpassed the sales of the PS4, but in South Korea, Singapore and, surprisingly, at home in Japan, the PS5 lost to the PS4 in sales in the first days.
