Sony has reduced the target of PlayStation 5 units produced by 4 million, expecting only 11 million consoles assembled by the end of March 2021.
According to The Verge, the company began to have problems in the production chain. The main face of the PS5, developed together with AMD, would have a specific problem that led to a yield below 50%, ie half of the parts produced could not be used in consoles.
However, the 11 million limit is still quite high, considering that the initial plans were around 6 million, less than the PS4, in 2013. The pandemic helped the gaming industry to return in force.
