Big PS5 Restock Reports Explained

Inside Gaming published this video item, entitled “Big PS5 Restock Reports Explained” – below is their description.

Thanks to ExpressVPN for sponsoring our channel http://expressvpn.com/inside

The PlayStation 5 has been an incredibly hard console to buy ever since it launched last year due to a number of factors including a global semiconductor shortage.

According to Sony they have eliminated that factor for PS5 production this year and will be on target to sell over 18 million PS5’s total by the end of the fiscal year.

What does it all mean? Well ideally that there are going to be a lot more PS5’s on shelves in the coming months… but there might be a catch.

Today we explain why some are optimistic for PS5’s to become more available while others claim it’s going to continue to be just as hard to secure a PS5 even well into next year.

Check out the video and let us know what you think in the comments below. Thanks for watching!

    The PlayStation 5 (PS5) is an upcoming home video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Announced in 2019 as the successor to the PlayStation 4, it is scheduled to launch on November 12, 2020 in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and South Korea, and on November 19, 2020 for the rest of the world.

    The platform is anticipated to launch in two varieties, as a base PlayStation 5 system incorporating an Ultra HD Blu-ray compatible optical disc drive for retail game support alongside digital distribution via the PlayStation Store, and a lower-cost Digital variant lacking the disc drive while retaining digital download support.

    The PlayStation 5 features a customized solid state drive designed for high-speed data streaming to enable significant improvements in graphical performance. The hardware also features a custom AMD GPU capable of ray tracing, support for 4K resolution displays and high framerates, new audio hardware for real-time 3D audio effects, and backward compatibility with most PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR games.
