What are you attempting to quote from that article?Thank you for posting an article from Nov. 1st with a comment from Sony saying "We think.....".
I said that.No one said "Waiting for supply to meet demand for these products would be incredibly foolish.".
No, I said they'd be dumb to wait to launch until they had enough supply to not sell out on launch day or very shortly after (what is being referred to here as a paper launch). They increased production and still sold out instantly. From what I can tell, you are arguing that they should have waited to launch until they had enough supply such that they wouldn't sell out which would have been foolish.This pandemic has been going on since MARCH. But Sony predicted this and has said so. The two don't correlate.Sony increased orders in July, but now you claim they would be dumb to do so?
And?"According to the report, Sony began mass production of PS5 in June and expects to assemble five million units by the end of September".
The unit didn't start production until June. WELL after the pandenic.
What are you on about? You're still using the numbers from the Bloomberg article that Sony said are straight up false, unless you can show me where Sony gave hard number predictions for PS5 shipments? All I've seen is that Sony said they plan to outsell the PS4 which sold 7.6 million units in the first 2 quarters.Sony Corp. has cut its estimated PlayStation 5 production for this fiscal year by 4 million units, down to around 11 million, following production issues with its custom-designed system-on-chip for the new console, according to people familiar with the matter.www.bloomberg.com
"Sony Corp. has cut its estimated PlayStation 5 production for this fiscal year by 4 million units, down to around 11 million, following production issues with its custom-designed system-on-chip for the new console, according to people familiar with the matter."
"The Tokyo-based electronics giant in July boosted orders with suppliers in anticipation of heightened demand for gaming in the holiday season and beyond, as people spend more time at home due to the coronavirus. But the company has come up against manufacturing issues, such as production yields as low as 50% for its SOC, which have cut into its ability to produce as many consoles as it wishes, said the people, who asked to remain anonymous because the deliberations aren’t public. Yields have been gradually improving but have yet to reach a stable level, they added."
Now, Sony denies this. But almost no one can get a PS5. So they were forecast to have 4 million this year and 11 million by the end of the fiscal year. So the 4 million shrank to 2 million due to production issues.
I can make random perditions and be like Sony, if I wanted to.
