Epic New PS5 Commercial Shows Us How Play Has No Limits

Epic New PS5 Commercial Shows Us How Play Has No Limits”

Just as Sony is preparing to officially announce the pricing of the upcoming PlayStation 5 console, Bloomberg reported that there might be potential trouble behind the scenes.

Sony is expecting a PS5 sales bonanza this holiday season based on earlier video gaming demand during the COVID-19 pandemic. Apparently, low 50% semiconductor yields have been produced, meaning that Sony has had to cut the total amount of consoles it will be manufacturing for the initial period of the PS5's life cycle.

Sony shares erased gains and were down as much as 3.5 per cent in the wake of the news, their biggest intraday drop since August.

"If the news is accurate, we would view the reduction as negative", Citigroup analysts including Kota Ezawa wrote in response to the report of Sony's revised production targets.

According to Bloomberg, yields have been gradually improving but they haven't yet reached a stable level so there's no guarantee that production will catch up in time. It's also possible that Sony will revise this forecast yet again before the end of the current fiscal year (March 2021). Pre-orders for the new Xbox models begin on September 22.

According to Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Masahiro Wakasugi, the standard PS5 console could be priced at $449 and the digital version may launch below $400.
