Sony Tackles PlayStation 5 Shortage by Making More PS4 Consoles - Bloomberg

- According to sources, Sony had planned to discontinue PS4 at the end of 2021

- Due to PS5 shortages, they're now going to make about 1 million PS4s in 2022

With sales of Sony's 8th gen machine now at 116.79 million, that would bring it to about 117.81m by the end of this year.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Just goes to show how bad the chip shortage really is.

This is good. So PS4 might have a shot at Gameboy LT sales after all ..



Gameboy sold 118.69 million, so Sony would need to produce about another 900k beyond this to pass it.

I bet there are some adjustments to be made just like the first quarter last year .. so I expect the numbers to be 117M till 31st december.

With 1M more in 2022 that would make 118M. Then there is a good chance Sony will produce 700k more.

What makes you suspect it will be adjusted up? The last time it was adjusted, it was adjusted down when Sony's quarterly figures showed it had been overtracked here.

Yes, and the time before that it was adjusted up by around 400k.

Also with the last week of this month the PS4 should be 116.82M not 116.79

So adjustments of close to 200k are possible. And the quarter before this PS4 did 200k. There is decent chance the PS4 has made more than 200k since this was holiday quarter. So the chance is there. And with 1M more for this year PS4 is not too far from Gamecube, if sony make just another 700k after that it's done.

There’s a chance, only if they made more stock, bundles and offers which the last 2, they didn’t.

Is pretty much dead in Japan and even here in Australia, stock is very limited.

The last week of this month is 5 days and post-Christmas, and the previous week was just 20k, so 116.82m to the 31st of December seems unlikely based on the data we currently have.

The system can only sell what is produced and shipped, and that's been a small number for some time now, and will remain small if this report is accurate. The charts we got also showed no significant holiday boost for it.

Furthermore, what is Sony's motivation to produce more after this year's million? It's been made clear many times that companies don't care about beating others in lifetime sales.

If they did, Sony would just produce 2 million in 2022 and put and end to it, and Nintendo would've produced another 1.2 million Wiis to beat the PS1. Sony doesn't care about outselling the Gameboy or not.
