So is this PS5 price and release date being announced tonight or just false rubbish?
Seems like bullshit. Everyone was pointing towards August event announcement. But who knows may come sooner as I’m sure retailers are pushing Sony so they can start officially take preorders. Gamestop and GAME need the preorder money badly to get people back in their shops again.So is this PS5 price and release date being announced tonight or just false rubbish?
Sony Interactive Entertainment has raised initial production orders for PlayStation 5 from the roughly six million units it planned in spring to around nine million units, according to a Nikkei report citing “sources familiar with the matter.”
Back in April, Bloomberg reported a PlayStation 5 production outlook of five to six million units by March 2021. Now, a new Bloomberg report corroborates Nikkei’s report of increased production orders, noting an intention to produce up to 10 million units by the end of 2020, which it states is in response to the increased demand brought about by the spread of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
PlayStation 5 is due out this holiday.
Update 1:45 a.m.: Bloomberg’s English report provides a few additional details:
- Even with a boost to manufacturing, Sony may still be unable to put enough units on store shelves during the holiday season due to shipping constraints.
- Sony previously advised suppliers that it would require 10 million units of the DualSense controller, but is now increasing that number to match the console’s new production outlook.
- Mass production of PlayStation 5 began in June. Sony expects to assemble five million units by the end of September and another five million between October and December.
I can’t believe I liked you at one stage. Then you had to turn on me and @Alock1 with your sly digs. Now I know why nobody likes you on here. I actually defended you on the secret gaming section for them not to ban you. @Damien and @Solius were adamant that you should be banned.Racist
When did I turn on @Alock1 ?
Oh we’d see about that next Thursday when the night of mic drops happens. You’d come running back and I’d get @Alock1 to give you expired codes. Also watch out for him at the conference next week he’d be appearing.Even if this were true I’ve zero interest in the console!
Why are you still here? Swear, I saw a thread title saying you are leaving. Got excited. Just shows I got to read your boring ass agenda driven threads for the full story. Wish your buddy @evil_geko did the same with games by playing them first.
Go boil your head you absolute gimp. Insult me as much as you want but don't insult my stinking dog.
I doubt it as red lights on consoles have a negative connotation and the promotional material where the black and red PS5 was seen had been photoshopped as you could still see the original white on the controller.Is that rumoured black and red console true?
Damn was hoping it was true. My hands are quite oily, so it's going to be a disaster on the white controller.I doubt it as red lights on consoles have a negative connotation and the promotional material where the black and red PS5 was seen had been photoshopped as you could still see the original white on the controller.
There will be different colours down the line but don't expect anything for launch.
