PlayStation 5 Malaysia Launch Possibly Delayed; Holiday 2020 Date Missing From Website (UPDATED) – Lowyat.NET

Published

on

UPDATE (3:15 PM): SIE has responded to our query. More details below.
ORIGINAL STORY (2:51 PM):
Although Sony announced that the PlayStation 5 will be made available to consumers starting this November, the company has yet to announce the exact launch date and pricing for Malaysia. So far, Singapore is the only market in Southeast Asia that has obtained a confirmed release date.
There were indeed rumours of stock shortage which was said due to lower yield rate for the PS5’s processor which was then shot down by Sony not long after. However, an observation made by Reddit user Papin97 regarding PlayStation 5 websites across Southeast Asia may increase anxiety among gamers that have been waiting to hear more about the release of the console in other countries within this region.

[L-R]: PS5 Malaysian site today as compared to the same site on 14 October.

Papin97 has noted that the Holiday 2020’s remark on the PS5’s page within the PlayStation websites across Southeast Asia is now gone including Malaysia. We have verified this through Internet Web Archive in which the remark was still there on the  snapshot taken on 14 October but missing on another snapshot that was archived on 15 October.
While some gamers may not be concerned about this as they might be able to afford stocks from Singapore but for many, having local units is the way to go. Furthermore, the pricing on non-Malaysian stocks will likely be under the control of importers, hence it is quite possible that the pricing of those units would be inflated and those that are too eager to get the PS5 for themselves may be paying too much for the console.
Sony PlayStation 5Meanwhile, we have since reached out to Sony Interactive Entertainment for further clarification. So, stay tuned.
UPDATE (3:15 PM):
SIE has swiftly got back to us with regards to our query over the statement:
“We understand that everyone is eager to get their hands on the PS5, and we are equally excited for it to come to MY too. SIES will make the announcement on MY release dates and pricing when they are ready.
Stay tuned. Thank you for your patience and support.”
Well, the statement surely didn’t provide any guarantee if we will be seeing PS5 released in Malaysia within the year-end season. It does confirm that PS5 is indeed on the way here but for the time being, it looks like Malaysian gamers have to play the long the long waiting game until further notice, as opposed to their counterparts in Singapore.

Sony to keep making PlayStation 4 as PS5 output hits snag – New York Post

Published

on

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.
Sony’s plans to mass produce its new PlayStation 5 gaming console have been put on hold because of disruptions in the global supply chain — forcing the company to keep cranking out its older PS4 systems.
The Japanese tech giant had initially planned to phase out manufacturing of PS4 at the end of last year and move to a full transition to its newer consoles, according to Bloomberg. But now it is pivoting to produce as many as 1 million of the old models in 2022.
After introducing the PS5 in November 2020, supply has been scarce due to shortages in advanced chips and other commodities needed to mass produce the hardware.
This past November, Sony reduced its PS5 production outlook. Initially, it aimed to make more than 16 million units in the year ending in March, but that number was trimmed to 14.8 million.
The older PS4 is cheaper to make and uses less advanced chips and software than its successor. Released in 2013, the PS4 has sold more than 116 million units and remains popular among gamers.
The PS5, which offers more sophisticated graphics and faster loading times than the PS4, was also met with great fanfare. As of September 2021, it has sold 13.3 million total units — surpassing the 7.6 million units that the PS4 sold in its first year of availability nearly a decade ago.
Sony told assembly partners late last year that it is pivoting to manufacture more PS4 consoles this year, though a company spokesperson denied that it had planned to discontinue production altogether.
“It is one of the best-selling consoles ever and there is always crossover between generations,” a spokesperson told Bloomberg.
This past fall, Sony reported a 27% increase in sales in its gaming division for the three-month fiscal quarter that ended on Sept. 30. The firm credited the popularity of the PS5.
In total, the Japanese conglomerate’s gaming division recorded $5.7 billion in sales during the three month period starting in July. Operating income fell 21% to $727 million while the company generated $10.8 billion in revenue.
Sony isn’t the only gaming company that is relying on its older technologies to keep profits flowing during the supply chain crunch.
Last year, Nvidia, the US firm that makes processing units for gaming consoles, revived its previous generation of GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards due to the shortage in semiconductors.
While the company never officially discontinued production of the card, it was not listed for sale as recently as November 2020.
The card was first introduced in 2016, but was gradually phased out in favor of the newer 16-series cards, according to PC Gamer.
Market observers say that the supply chain crisis and chip shortages will likely last through this year.
