Sony will make more than 10 million PlayStation 5 consoles available from Holiday 2020 launch to the end of March 31, 2020.
Taken from TweakTown … PS5 console hardware shortages shouldn’t be a problem on and shortly after the console’s launch. Sources tell both Bloomberg and Japanese website Nikkei Asian Review that Sony has revised its original plans to restrict PlayStation 5 console stock due higher MSRP prices.
Now Sony has put in production orders to exceed the PS4’s 7.5 million launch period sales, and sources say Sony is planning on making, shipping, and selling as many as 10 million PS5s in the same period. This would eclipse PS4 sales by 2.5 million units on a 33% volume increase.
Sony had originally planned to manufacture and ship between 5-6 million PS5 consoles from November 2020 through March 31, 2021. The company’s newly-automated factory in Kisarazu, Japan will be a major asset in manufacturing and production. The plant can assemble two PS4 consoles every minute.
