Unfortunately, scalpers and bots have made buying a PlayStation 5 console difficult.
In addition to bots and scalpers, another reason why the console is so hard to come by is a lack of components.
Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki recently said that the manufacturing of PS5 consoles has taken a hit in the last few months. This is due to a lack of semiconductors and other components.
“It is difficult for us to increase production of the PS5 amid the shortage of semiconductors and other components,” Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki explained.
“We have not been able to fully meet the high level of demand from customers [but] we continue to do everything in our power to ship as many units as possible to customers who are waiting for a PS5.”
Fingers crossed Sony rectifies the problem sooner rather than later, especially with some of the games expected to drop later in 2021.
