Sony has responded to the ongoing PS5 shortage by making more PS4 consoles.

Due to the current chip shortage, the Company has altered those plans and will continue production through 2022.

The strategy will add about a million PS4 units this year to help offset some of the pressure on the company’s PS5 production, a figure that will be adjusted in response to demand.
