Sony was planning to sell 15M PS5s, and they reconfirmed that figure when Bloomberg reported 11M, but now Sony has cut their sales target in half to 7.6M, and its not like the PS4 has been taking up all their resources because they stupidly shifted away it
Nintendo OTOH has increased their Switch sales target from 24M to 26.5M
Sony was reportedly originally planning to make 15 million PS5 consoles available around the world by March 31, 2021, but that has been reduced to 11 million.
Sony has reached out to GamesIndustry.biz with the following statement denying the Bloomberg report:
“While we do not release details related to manufacturing, the information provided by Bloomberg is false," the statement reads.
"We have not changed the production number for PlayStation 5 since the start of mass production."
The company said it is on-track to meet its forecast of 7.6 million units shipped by March 31, 2021.
Nintendo altered its previously announced forecast that it will sell 24 million Switch units between April 2020 and March 2021 to 26.5 million units.
