Bloomberg: The chip yield rate is sluggish, and Sony’s PS5 sales estimate is lowered by 4 million to 11 million


According to Bloomberg Japan, the production volume of Sony’s next-generation game console “PlayStation 5” sold during the year has been reduced by 4 million units to approximately 11 million units. Mainly because the output of SoC closely related to PS5 is not stable.

An anonymous source revealed that in July this year, Sony notified component suppliers that, considering the consumption of nesting caused by the spread of the new coronavirus infection, even after the peak sales season at the end of the year, it can support demand, so it will double production.

According to relevant sources, due to the low 50% yield rate of SoC, it was forced to review the production volume . It said that the yield rate is increasing, but the quality has not reached a stable level. A Sony spokesperson declined to comment.

Last week, Microsoft announced that it would sell the Xbox Series X for US$499 (49,980 yen in Japan, or about 3218 yuan), and Xbox Series for US$299 (32,980 yen, or about 2,123 yuan). S. There is a view that the affordable price of the new Microsoft Xbox machine poses a threat to Sony.

Naijatechnews previously reported that it is expected that Sony will announce the price and release date in the PS5 related video event held on September 17. Bloomberg Think Tank analyst Masahiro Wakasugi predicts that the PS5 will be priced at $449 and the digital version of the PS5 will be $399.
