With the outbreak of the disease COVID-19 disrupting the world economy and stopping the development and production of products, it is reasonable to think that PlayStation 5 and also Xbox Series X will be delayed in their release. However, AMD, who created the SOC that this console will use, make sure that this will arrive this year.
In his last earnings call, AMD Director Lisa Su said "We expect our revenue to grow in the second quarter, and will see a big increase by the second half of this year as we increase production to support PlayStation releases year 5 and Xbox Series X. "
For now, Lisa Su says that we're going to see both consoles later this year, and that the company will be responsible for providing enough chips for that date. Even with this increase in AMD production, it may be easier to use the Microsoft console than Sony. Recent reports indicate that Sony will limit the early release of the PS5 Due to the high cost, which some developers have been able to achieve 549 dollars. Hopefully this does not happen, as consoles that debut at high prices usually do not match the competition. I watched you, PlayStation 3.
What do you think about this? Do you think we'll have Playstation 5 And Xbox Series X this Christmas?
