This means that PlayStation has managed to convey a variety of new gamers into its ecosystem with its next-gen launch, or at the very least absorb a variety of gamers who might have chosen different consoles or caught with PC in earlier generations.For some context, the PlayStation 5 shipped 4.5 million units in 2020, matching the launch run of the PlayStation Four again in 2013. Demand continues to be outstripping provide for the console, and Ryan advised GQ that Sony is “working as hard as we possibly can” to treatment the scenario, noting the semiconductor scarcity and entirely-online distribution as issues which might be holding again manufacturing.

Elsewhere in the identical interview, we realized that Gran Turismo 7 is being pushed back to 2022.
