PS5 Consoles may soon be easier to obtain, according to Sony CFO Hiroki Totoki.
During the company’s quarterly earnings call (via Twinfinite), Totoki was asked about the global semiconductor shortage PS5 stock so hard to get since the console was released in November last year. In response, Totoki told investors that Sony has not only set the target for the number of consoles it wants to sell this year, but has also secured all the chipsets they need to produce these consoles.

A number of factors have made it difficult for gamers to get hold of the PS5. In addition to the lack of semiconductors, the global pandemic has affected production and supply chains around the world. When the consoles are actually shipped, dedicated scalping groups have caused further disruption, bought up and then sold more than 60,000 new generation machines in the weeks following the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
