PS5 Restock Incoming: Here’s Everything You Need To Know – Forbes

Published

Sony’s hard-to-find PlayStation 5 console is being restocked as early as today.
Sony’s hard-to-find PlayStation 5 console could be returning to store shelves as early as today.
According to Spiel Times, a number of Target employees have said that the PS5 will be back in stock at Target sometime between Sunday the 27th and Tuesday the 29th. It seems likely that this will not happen today since restocking at the retailer typically occurs in the early hours of the morning.
This means that—if reports are correct—the PS5 could be available to purchase either tomorrow or Tuesday morning, with restocking occurring typically between 5am and 7am.
This will vary according to locale, and all units will only be available online to purchase for delivery or store pickup. You won’t find a PS5 on store shelves for quite some time, thanks to both scarcity and the COVID-19 pandemic.
To check whether a Target store near you has any PS5 units available, check this link for the disc-based edition, and this link for the all-digital edition.
You’ll want to be logged into your Target account with a payment method saved and ready to go. If restocking does occur in the wee hours of the morning, you’ll want to get up early just in case.
Note: This is not a guarantee. This news has not been officially confirmed by either Sony or Target. It’s a chance and a chance only at getting your hands on a PS5.
But remember: Unless you’re dying to play Demon’s Souls, there’s not really any compelling reason to buy a PS5 right now (or an Xbox Series X).
The fact is, there just aren’t that many next-gen exclusives out there to play. Almost everything, including Spider-Man: Miles Morales, can be played on last-gen consoles still. That will change in 2021, but we suspect it will become much easier to find these consoles in the new year (not right away, of course).
Still, best of luck to you. And whatever you do, please don’t buy price-gouged systems from scalpers on eBay or other reseller sites. The PS5 is a fine console. It’s worth the MSRP and not a penny more.

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

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.
