In the last few hours, Sony has denied the rumors published in recent days by the well-known financial website Bloomberg which, based on some indiscretions collected from their sources close to the company, had explained that the initial production plan of PlayStation 5 risked not to be able to be respected due to some production problems due to a particular chip present within the new platform, which would have had a production yield of 50%.
According to the report published by Bloomberg, in fact, the offending component would have forced Sony to produce fewer units of PlayStation 5, which would have entailed considerable economic damage when its distribution on the market, expected by the end of the year.
Here is the official statement released by Sony about the PlayStation 5 Production Cuts remors:
“While we do not release details related to manufacturing, the information provided by Bloomberg is false. We have not changed the production number for PlayStation 5 since the start of mass production.”
It, therefore, seems that the production of the console, of which the official price and release date are not yet known, should not have problems with regard to the distribution of the new platforms from the moment of its release on the market.
We just have to wait for more information, which will surely arrive at the showcase to be held today, on September 16, in which some important details about the new titles and the platform should finally be revealed, including the release date and price of PlayStation 5.
