PS5: Sony denies reducing console production

by Jerry

Sony denies drastically reducing ps5 production. Contrary to the information relayed by Bloomberg, the Japanese manufacturer still plans to manufacture 15 million PlayStation 5s by the end of the fiscal year at the end of March 2021.

On September 15, 2020, a Bloomberg report stated that Sony would eventually produce only 11 million PS5 by the end of the fiscal year. The economic media ensured that the Japanese firm was experiencing significant production difficulties with the console's System-on-Chip (SoC), the 3rd generation AMD Ryzen (7nm). The article even mentioned a 50% drop in yield in the production rate. Under these conditions, Bloomberg prophesied a complicated launch for the PlayStation 5, whose release date announcement is imminent.

Sony reassures: no production problems for PS5!

When questioned by our Games Industry colleagues, Sony strongly denied the information spread by Bloomberg. "Although we do not disclose the details of the manufacture of its consoles, the information provided by Bloomberg is false" reassures Sony, aware that the assertions of the economic media have spread on the web like wildfire.

"We have not changed the number of PS5 to be produced since the launch of mass production" stress the Japanese group, anxious to twist the rumors. By March 2020, Sony will produce 15 million PS5. By December, the firm still aims to manufacture 10 million to meet the demand, which promises to be colossal during the holiday season.

In the midst of a pandemic, Sony expects many people to prefer to stay at home in front of a video game. To meet the demand, Sony has put the package to produce a sufficient launch stock. By comparison, the manufacturer had only planned a stock of 4.2 million PS4 when the console was launched in 2013.

As a reminder, Sony should lift the veil on the price and release date of the PS5 at a conference Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 10 p.m. We'll give you an appointment tonight to follow her live with us and while waiting for more information about the PS5, feel free to give your opinion in the comments below.
