  1. At what point do you say that the pitifully low PS5 sales are really down to lack of interest in the software currently available and the fact that “supply shortages” have nothing to do with actual manufacturing constraints and everything to do with Sony prioritising Western markets over Japan. The new Xboxes would be selling low numbers whether they had good stock or not. Right now Nintendo is king in the land of the rising sun and expect that to continue for sometime to come.

  2. How would after 5 generation consoles would you not gain experience of meeting demand? Sony knew it was coming. That was stupid. If they were able to meet demand on the PS4 when it first launched why weren’t they able to use that same strategy at the start of PS5?

    And dont use that pandemic as an excuse. Nintendo met demand . Kinda of stupid to blame everything on a dumb virus.
