PS5 og Xbox Series X udsættes på grund af COVID 19

PS5
PS5, Xbox Series X eller sågar begge, bliver ifølge DFC forsinket på grund af COVID-19.

Coronavirus trækker på nuværende tidspunkt alle overskrifterne, og vi formoder, at problemet beklageligt ikke har tænkt sig at slippe grebet i os inden for nærmeste fremtid. En ny DFC Intelligence-rapport, der for nylig blev udstedt af forskningsfirmaet for spilindustrien, der blev oprettet i 1994 peger i retning af PS5, Xbox Series X eller begge, udsættes på grund af COVID 19

Ifølge DFC Intelligence er der en meget reel chance for, at en eller begge næste generationskonsoller fra Sony og Microsoft, PlayStation 5 og Xbox Series X, vil gå glip af deres planlagte lancering på grund af forsyningskæden skaber problemer forårsaget af COVID-19.

“Coronavirus is likely to have a major short-term impact on the delivery of both systems. There is a strong likelihood one or both systems will not make a 2020 launch. If the systems do launch, supply will likely be constrained and initial pricing could be higher than expected.

Currently, the economy is in an unprecedented state of uncertainty. Even if the situation clears up in a few weeks, the ability to manufacture and release a high-end new game system has already been severely impacted”

AMD, der leverer custom SoC til både PlayStation 5 og Xbox Series X, udtalte for kort tid siden, at næste gen stadig er on track. Imidlertid må vi forvente en forsinkelse for PS5 og Xbox Series X, med pandemien, der langsomt aftager i Kina, men næsten eksploderer i Europa og Nordamerika.

“The good news is that consumer demand is likely to be stronger than ever. Demand will far exceed supply and long-term that could increase overall sales. In addition, the abundance of government and public caution should help assure this is a comparatively short-term crisis.

Both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will release to record consumer demand. The challenge Sony and Microsoft face is making sure they release systems that meet expectations. Given the current situation, waiting to make sure they get the initial product right is the most prudent choice”
