  1. Well considering their is a “Global chip shortage” That’s affecting businesses, including the auto market. Mainly because of the pandemic, production of PS5 has been slowed. Sony lost $25.6 billion in profits because of the chip cruch. So i guess these sales figures for units sold would be pretty accurate or would they.
