PS5 chip issue affecting production of New Gen consoles
Bloomberg reported that the production process for PS5 has slowed down. This is due to the problems encountered when producing a “custom system on chip”. The report also claimed that this forced manufacturers to cut production of this year’s total PS5 to 4 million.
According to reports, manufacturers had planned to manufacture around 11 million units of the next console before its release, but were forced to reduce the number of consoles by a total of 11 million. To talk about it, Sony has released a statement to respond to this rumor and clarify the doubts created in people.
In a statement posted on Gameindustry.biz, the manufacturers did not release details related to the manufacturing, but confirmed that the information Bloomberg provided was false. The manufacturers said they had not changed the production number for the PlayStation 5 since mass production began.
Bloomberg had also reported that the core processing component that was done in conjunction with AMD has a number of issues with results as low as 50%. This means that half of the parts produced were not fit for shipment. They also mentioned that Sony has improved with its production milestones, but “has yet to reach a stable level”.

A number of gamers have also asked about the price of the PS5. But manufacturers have yet to reveal the console’s official price range. There has been a lot of information about this on the internet and it suggests that the price could vary around $ 500 for the Blu-ray version and $ 450 for the All-Digital edition. This turns into ₹ 37,300 and ₹ 33,500 respectively when directly converted.
But after looking at the price range of the latest console, that’s not the price gamers should judge the PS 5 by. Indeed, the PS4 launched in 2013 cost $ 399. In 2013, $ 399 was around ₹ 24,000 when converted directly. But when the PS4 launched in India, it was for ₹ 39,999. This is due to the inclusion of taxes and import duties. So, it might be safe to consider ₹ 50,000 as the estimated price of the PS5.
