Sony has said that the PS5’s insufficient supply is having a negative impact on product sales, but it is still expected to reach Sony’s annual shipment target. Sony’s goal is to ship more than 14.8 million PS5 units in the fiscal year ending in March 2022, which will exceed shipments at the same stage of the PS4 life cycle.
Sony sold 2.3 million PS5 game consoles in the first quarter of fiscal year 21, and yesterday said that it shipped 3.3 million units in the second quarter, and sold a total of 5.6 million units during the six-month period. In order to achieve its goal, Sony needs to ship more than 9.2 million PS5 units in the second half of fiscal year 21.
Sony Executive Vice President and CFO Yuki Yuki said at yesterday’s financial results conference that the company’s fiscal year 21 sales target for PS5 has not changed, but several factors are significantly affecting product supply, such as the global distribution supply chain. Disruptions and restrictions on the supply of components. Shishi Yushu also reiterated that the PS4’s second year shipments will be 14.8 million units. The company’s goal this year is to exceed this number, and they have not wavered. But he also admitted that PS5 sales in the first half of the year did not meet Sony’s expectations.
Shi Shi Yushu also said that on a global scale, the logistics interruption is mainly due to the limited supply of semiconductor equipment, which has a greater impact on PS5 production than expected, so the hardware sales volume in the first two quarters is not so optimistic. But Sony will work hard to take different measures to ensure the supply of PS5 and maintain the momentum of product sales. The company promises to provide you with as many PS5 products as possible.
