Play Station 5 (PS5) is Finally on the Market

After 7 years of waiting, Sony‘s (SONY) new generation of game console Play Station 5 (PS5) is finally on the market, 11/12 will be officially in seven countries around the world, including the United States, Japan, South Korea, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico Sales in other places, Taiwan is listed in the 11/19 second wave of sales markets.

The newly launched PS5 is equipped with an 8-core Zen 2 micro-architecture chip of AMD 7nm process, and adopts Nvidia customized graphics card, as well as SSD and UHD (Ultra HD) Blu-ray player, etc., not only the overall performance is significantly improved, but black and white are mixed and matched. Its streamlined technological shape is even more amazing to the world.

On 9/17, Sony announced the PS5 price (US$499 for the disc version and US$399 for the digital version) the next day, the pre-order event went on sale around the world, and it was immediately killed by all players, and there was a rush to buy everywhere. Both physical and online channels appear to line up and cannot be pre-ordered. A lot of scalpers appeared on the Internet. Not only did the price increase several times as soon as it changed hands, but eBay also saw a sky-high price of NT$700,000. The level of player madness is truly jaw-dropping.

It is precisely because the PS5 is difficult to find a single machine, the market has reported that the PS5 has a poor yield rate due to the key system-on-chip (SoC) of the host, so the output has been revised down from the original 15 million units to 11 million units. However, Sony immediately denied it, emphasizing that the estimated number has never changed.

After reviewing the previous generation of PS4 launched in November 2013, it set a sales figure of 7 million units in the first year. As of the end of June this year, there have been 112.1 million units sold. The PS5 is a sensation before it plays out, and the epidemic continues to stimulate the home economy. We can already expect that as the PS5‘s listing is approaching, the performance of the relevant supply chain groups will erupt, and the PS5 price is more expensive than the previous generation, and the gross profit of related suppliers can be expected. Hope to improve.

Of course, there are some good stocks that still have advantages in short-term chips under the high-end index fluctuations, including related stocks such as AI and 5G. However, due to the limited space, please go directly to the fan club and have a look. The public, there is help.
