PlayStation 5 shortages can last until 2022: new stock in early May.

It is still difficult to get hold of a PlayStation 5 and if we are to believe a new report then the shortages could persist for quite some time. Since the launch of the PS5 in November 2020, the console has been continuously sold out and with a single sale you usually have no more than a minute.

Foxconn, one of the largest electronics manufacturers in the world, has publicly spoken out about the global shortage of chips that is currently causing supply and demand problems in the technology industry. As reported by Nikkei Asia, Foxconn Chairman Young Liu opened the quarterly earnings presentation on the ongoing inventory issues.

Liu said the offer appeared to be acceptable in the first two months of 2021, but Foxconn started to see changes this month. These changes have allowed the company to deliver 10% fewer products and it doesn’t sound like the situation will be resolved any time soon.

According to the report, Liu has been told by research firms that this chip shortage could continue until at least the second quarter of next year. That would mean that the PlayStation 5 will be poorly available for another year and the Christmas season will bring even stronger demand.

Update 26-04 (10:34) → A small update, because unfortunately there is still little news about future deliveries. At Bol.com and Coolblue, the advice is still to register for a notification, so that you may be informed at an early stage. Amazon Germany has indicated to customers that it expects the next delivery at the beginning of May, while MediaMarkt will not be able to offer single copies again until July due to all open orders.
