Sony actually wants to focus entirely on the new PlayStation 5.

But since the console still can't be offered in sufficient quantities, the company has to change plans.

It's been a little over a year since the PlayStation 5 launched.

Even so, it's still incredibly difficult to get your hands on Sony's new console.

The company's solution to this shortage?

Produce more PS4 consoles.

PS5 Production Difficulties: Sony Resumes PS4 Manufacturing

As

Bloomberg

reports, Sony originally planned to end production of the PS4 at the end of last year. However, the slow pace of production of the new PS5 is forcing the company to reconsider this strategy. The components of the PS4 are namely easier to obtain and the production is cheaper. The

high

demand

for the PS5 isn't the only

reason why it's sold out everywhere. The

global

semiconductor

shortage

is

slowing down production enormously and an improvement is not in sight until the second half of the year at the earliest. Therefore, Sony has decided

to continue PS4 production until 2022

.

Is there still any demand for the PS4?

Of course, the question arises as to

how high the demand for the PS4 is at all

.

Most people who wanted a PS4 now had seven years to buy one.

Even if the PS4 were to be offered even cheaper, most people would probably still be waiting for an opportunity to buy the successor.

However, the current demand for the PS4 for Sony is probably of secondary importance.

According to

Bloomberg

, the continuation of PS4 production also plays

an important role in negotiations with production partners

.

PlayStation: Many new titles are also coming to PS4

The good news is that many new games are still coming

for both console generations

, including God of War: Ragnarok and Horizon Forbidden West.

Therefore, PlayStation fans don't have to worry about not being able to play a game just because they don't own a PS5.

The only games not yet released cross-platform include Demon's Souls, Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Final Fantasy VII Remake: Intergrade.
