It came from something new Bloomberg Report, citing unnamed sources and bringing in experts to comment on the details.
The Bloomberg report said it had reduced production estimates for the Sony PS5 from 15 million units to 11 million units. According to Bloomberg’s unnamed sources, this is due to “product issues with its custom-designed system-on-chip for the new console”. At one stage during production, 50% of the components produced are actually sufficient for use, although this number is still high.
However, shortly after the Bloomberg report was published, Sony reached out to it Gamesindustry.biz With the statement that the information published by the outlet is incorrect.
“While we have not released details of the manufacture, the information provided by Bloomberg is incorrect,” Sony wrote in a statement.
Decrease in production Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.. Although Sony and Microsoft’s consoles share common features, including the same RDNA 2 graphics technology, there are no worries about Microsoft’s product. The result could be console gamers looking to upgrade, finding PS5 consoles unavailable and buying the Next-Gen Xbox instead.
In more positive news, Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Masahiro Wakasugi said the Sony PS5 could push the price of the Xbox Series X to 99,499, pushing the price to 9,449 (and less than $ 400 for the digital edition). It’s still more expensive than the $ 300 Series S, but the PS5 Digital Edition has the same performance chops as the standard PS5. The Xbox Series S is a low-spec system that still offers fast loading and ray tracing, although it is limited to 1440p output.
Game consoles usually sell at a loss, the only notable Nintendo Wii in recent memory. This helps in encouraging consumers to buy consoles, while manufacturers make money back by selling games. So Sony is likely to be very flexible with its pricing, especially now that we know the dual-sided strategy of the Xbox.
జ Report based on listings at Spanish retailer The PS5 for the standard version will cost 499 euros and the digital edition 399 euros. These are statistics similar to Vakasugi, so this rumor may be more than an expert opinion.
Today (September 16) is a big day for Sony PS5 Showcase We look forward to seeing the price and availability of the new console announced along with the new game revelation. Once we have them, it won’t be long until the new PlayStation and new Xbox battles this November.
