Sony will be limiting PS5 supply in 2020 over concerns of a high price at launch, a report alleges.
~Bloomberg.The Tokyo-based tech giant is limiting its initial production run in part because it expects the PS5’s ambitious specs to weigh on demand by leading to a high price at launch.
The report alleges that only 5-6 million PS5 units will be available to consumers until March 2021; in that same time period, the PS4 sold 7.5 million units.
