Sony CEO Jim Ryan says production of the PS5 will be increasing this summer in a bid to end the consoles ongoing shortage issues.
Gamers everywhere are still trying to bag themselves a PS5, with a shortage of parts for the console they have became increasingly difficult to successfully track down.
If you’re not one of the few lucky souls who have already managed to get their hands on the console, you may be in luck as Sony is reportedly said to be increasing production of the PS5 this summer.
The PS5 has already been dubbed as one of the most successful console launches following the PS4, this is likely to continue if production of the consoles picks back up.
Since its release back in November of last year, the console has became extremely difficult to obtain which has left many fans frustrated, however this has been addressed by Sony CEO Jim Ryan who discussed the shortages in a recent interview.
Jim Ryan revealed in the interview that Sony is planning on ramping up the production of the console over the summer hopefully making it more accessible to players.
Since the PlayStation 5’s release, the console has been targeted by scalpers online buying a multitude of units and selling them on at incredibly inflated prices. Scalpers have managed to bag several consoles at once with the use of bots, they have then gone to sell them on for as much as double their market value.
Although purchasing a PS5 requires a PlayStation Network account, it hasn’t stopped the scalpers making their way through to the checkouts. This isn’t likely to come to end unless Sony issues harsher restrictions when it comes to purchasing the consoles.
Hopefully we see these measured put in place when the consoles again become available, but in the meantime be sure to check back with us at Gamerficial for the latest news and updates.
