As you will have understood, the Playstation 5 is part of a generation of consoles released directly out of stock. Remember, when Sony’s last console was released, it was November 2020, and the coronavirus pandemic was reaching peak levels, paralyzing the economy around the world. Southeast Asia, the leading producer of semiconductor metals used in the manufacture of smart cards (ie processors and graphics processors for consoles and PCs) has been hard hit, slowing the production of consoles, graphics cards and even cars all over the world. A factor that is still felt today on the high-tech market, and particularly on that of the latest generation game consoles.

As for Playstations 5, and more generally graphics processors, the situation should not return to normal before 2024. A prediction made by Pat Gelsinger, the President and CEO of Intel, who affirms in an interview with CNBC that the production of microchips should return to its full potential by the end of 2023. A precise expertise but a bad omen for console and PC gamers who expected to be able to enjoy a stable situation by the end of 2023 the end of the year 2022.

The PS5 still suffers from many stock shortages, and although this article is not infallible, it still aims to give you the weapons to try to buy Sony’s console as soon as possible and without a hitch.
