Wow, that’s pretty bullshit. Imagine waiting for years and months on end to get this new-gen tech and all a CEO could care about is just saying no. Harsh, but admittedly a bit short-sighted for something that everyone knows is a highly sought out product in the market upon the day of release. So, what are we supposed to do with your exclusives now, Sony? Have you paid every developer properly for rights but can properly allocate for production?
What good is a new-gen console that can never be purchased? Or let’s say, by the time everyone can afford to get themselves a copy, it’s relevance is close to nothing? Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan thinks otherwise. He has then confirmed that stocks won’t be as plenty anytime soon. In his words, “Everything is sold. Absolutely everything is sold,” Ryan said. “I’ve spent much of the last year trying to be sure that we can generate enough demand for the product. And now in terms of my executive bandwidth, I’m spending a lot more time on trying to increase supply to meet that demand.”
He blames the COVID-19 pandemic in making the entire situation hard for them, especially with their supply chain being compromised (whatever the fuck that means) due to the coronavirus’ rapid spread. Stocks are barely visible for the PS5 ever since it’s release last September, with more eager people resorting to scalpers who sell at such a high price just for you to get hands on this next-gen console.
Is it worth it? Should Jim Ryan be replaced? Let us know in the comments section below.
