For Sony these are very important days ahead of the arrival of the next generation of consoles. Microsoft, in fact, has anticipated the Japanese company by communicating prices and launch date of Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S and prompting it to reply with an answer that will likely arrive in the evening today (we will follow the presentation event on Twitch).
But there is also another story that led to a sharp drop in the stock yesterday: the Bloomberg report according to which Sony has decided to reduce the production volumes of the PlayStation 5 due to problems attributable to the yield of the SoC. .
Sony intervened to decisively deny the rumors spread by Bloomberg defining them false:
While we don't release production details, the information Bloomberg provided is false. We haven't changed the amount of PlayStation 5 production since the start of mass production
Bloomberg spoke of 4 million units less than those initially planned, for a total of 11 million units by March 2021. A prospect that has not been taken well by the markets, because it is linked to the not very reassuring hypothesis that Sony may not be in able to meet the demand during the holiday season.
Meanwhile, the company is taking steps to avoid delays in deliveries of next-gen consoles, but the content of the event organized for today's evening will soon relaunch the Sony title: we will talk about games again, but the details most anticipated concern the prices and the arrival date of the consoles.
If the price indiscretions prove to be correct (it is assumed 499 euros for PS5 and 399 euros for PS5 All Digital) Sony could have an advantage over Microsoft by turning to those who are willing to give up the Blu-ray player: the PS5 All Digital would cost 100 euros less than PS5 (and Xbox Series X), leaving the remaining specifications unchanged. The situation is different for Microsoft's Xbox Series S which, in addition to losing the player, comes with features revised downwards compared to Xbox Series X – but it is true that it costs even less (299 euros). In short, a market in turmoil and the ultimate benefit will be the end user who will soon have a range of proposals to choose a next gen console.
