Sony Aims To Create 10 Million PlayStation 5 Units
Sony are planning on upping their PlayStation 5 production to a staggering 10 million units, due to high demand and Covid-19. Originally, Sony were only planning on producing 5-6 million units by March 2021 but have since recognised this number may not meet demand for the next-gen console.
For comparison, Sony’s PlayStation 4 sold 5.3 million units in the first 6 months of its release. However, since the release of the PlayStation 4 console, the popularity of gaming has significantly increased. This increase is partly to do with the Covid-19 lockdown. With millions of people being forced to stay at home, many people turned to gaming as one of the ways to spend their time, creating a new passion for hundreds of thousands of people.
In other PlayStation 5 news, the official PlayStation 5 pages on Amazon have begun to go live around the world. This is causing speculation that the PlayStation 5 pre-orders might go live soon, however, it is expected that Sony will reveal the price of their next-gen console just before pre-orders do go live. With Microsoft’s Xbox Series X showcase taking place on 23rd July, perhaps Sony are waiting to see what their competitors say before revealing their price.
