SIE apologized for the inconvenience caused by the logistical and production problems faced by the Japanese technological giant and, in thanking users for understanding, reported that the distribution chain is back to work at full capacity.
The CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment reiterates the concept by underlining that the problems that have made PlayStation 5 unobtainable since the launch of the console have been resolved, at least for the Asian markets: Ryan promises to distribute significantly more PS5s in Japan (and the rest of Asia) during 2023.
It is important to note by the article, that Ryan was only saying supply chain issues have been resolved for the Asian market,
Ryan’s statements, it should be reiterated, refer only to the Asian market, as a result we do not know if the logistical and production problems that have affected the distribution of PlayStation 5 in Europe and North America to date are destined to continue or not.
The article seems to be auto-translating a domestic language but basically it talks about how Jim Ryan says that IN ASIA the supply chain and distribution issues that have made the PS5 "unobtainable" has been resolved. He says Sony expects to send increased shipments to Japan, and the rest of Asia as the article writes.
However, the article does make mention that he was only referring to the Asia market, so until Jim clarifies that the production and stock issues are resolved here in the US and in Europe too, we should expect supply issues to last awhile longer.
But the good news is this indicates that PS5 supply problems will be resolved in the west sooner rather than later at least. So it's a good sign, at least imo.
I'm hoping by spring.
