Sony has recently registered a new PlayStation 5 Model which basically points towards the previous rumours which suggested that Sony is trying to create a new model of PlayStation 5
Sony previously stated that PS5 production issues would not resolve this year, so it seems very weird of them to launch a new model in 2022 even though most people cannot buy a PS5 yet because it is not in stocks anywhere.
Sony CFO did state that the company was looking for various solutions to help the production shortage end, which could have included altering hardware designs and stuff like that. I am still kind of surprised. I mean, I don’t really mind another PS5 model as long as it helps to end the production shortage. I still do not have a PS5, yet just like many other people out there, I still cannot manage to buy one because of these production issues.
According to a report by Digitimes which states “Suppliers including foundry TSMC are expected to kick off production for the redesign of Sony’s PlayStation 5 (PS5) games console between the second and third quarters of 2022, according to industry sources.” Dr Sekan, an analyst has also stated on Twitter earlier that the next PS5 will come with a “new semi-customized” 6nm CPU from AMD.
So this registered version could be the one Digitimes were talking about hopefully, it does help in ending this production shortage; I think they might even release it this year because Jim Ryan said that Stocks would return to normal in the second half of this year
