But we know that Sony is still confident to be able to match the PS4's shipment pace while Microsoft has had no problem to ship more current Xboxes than of the Xbox One a generation ago.
So I don't see any good reason why stock should be a problem in this comparison.
The thing is PS5 shipment numbers are 400K behind PS4 at the end of September.
It all depends on if they can't meet their forecast and just haven't told us yet lol. Because they still forecast 22.6m PS5's shipped by March 2022 and PS4 shipped 22.3m by then, so 300k more shipped.
So yeah they were 400k behind, but they still claimed to be able to be 300k ahead by March at the time they posted those numbers.
I still have a feeling they won't be able to meet that, there's just too many shortages and logistics problems at the moment. But Sony knows best so either know and haven't announced it yet or despite the world situation have managed to get everything they need for the 22.6m forecast.
