According to industry sources, Sony will sell 16.8 million to 18 million consoles in 2021. But at this point, a lot of work falls on the sub-companies working for Sony. Potential problems due to the pandemic could directly upset Sony‘s 2021 plans. Time will tell whether such a thing will be true or not.

According to the DigiTimes report, Sony gave the PlayStation 5 priority to the North American and European markets. However, the sources who say that this situation will not continue like this forever, say that there will be no stock problems in Asian countries in 2021. However, this means that the console is offered in very small quantities to Asia. According to the statistics of the video game magazine Famitsu, 242 thousand gamers living in Japan have already owned a PlayStation 5. Don’t forget to check our other news about PS5 here.
