PlayStation 5 Will Not Be Delayed by the Kung Flu


Quote:
Despite the coronavirus (COVID-19) affecting its projected profits, Sony still expects the PS5 to launch this holiday season.

Speaking with Bloomberg, a Sony spokesperson said there won't be, as Bloomberg puts it, a "notable impact on the launch" of PlayStation 5 later this year. Other facets of the company's business are expecting slashed profits. Compared to its financial forecast back in February, Sony's profits are likely to be about $370 million lower.

It's possible upcoming first-party PS4 games could be affected by the pandemic, as Sony's Chinese manufacturing centers were shut down for weeks as the outbreak was being managed. At this point, there are no announced delays, with The Last of Us Part 2 arriving in May and Ghost of Tsushima releasing in June.

"Although no issues have emerged so far, Sony is carefully monitoring the risk of delays in production schedules for game software titles at both its first-party studios and partner studios, primarily in Europe and the U.S.," Sony said in a statement.

However, many of Sony's employees are now working from home and a portion of its offices are closed.

"In accordance with mandates from national and local governments, Sony has closed a portion of its offices, mainly in Europe and the U.S., where employees are now working from home," Sony said in a statement. "Additionally, at Sony’s offices in Japan and other areas, employees must work from home, excluding a small number of essential employees."

It wouldn't matter, there are still going to be "surprising" shortages of consoles at launch due to "unprecedented" demand they couldn't "possibility have foreseen!"

They will want to thank all PlayStation fans and assure them they are going to do their best to recover from the delays in production caused by COVID-19 as quickly as possible.

There is never enough launch systems to go around. That is pretty much the way it goes. If you don't get your pre-order in as soon as they go up on Amazon, you won't get one.

And Evil was bitching about the XBX look? If that is the production unit, the PS5 is hideous looking

You can't delay something that has a nebulous release date.

No delay, but nobody will buy after the economy has crashed :P

That is most likely a fan made rendering of the developer unit.

I never thought I would care about a consoles appearance until now. If it ends up looking like that then... well. Maybe I won't get one? I dunno, I get conflicted. I'll get the Xbox instead then I think.

It's a render of the dev kits, which almost never look like the end-user units.

Agreed. It can't possibly be, because that is likely the shittiest looking console I've ever seen. I think the Xbox's "trashcan" design is infinitely better than this.

Have one already, and it's more powerful than the yet released PS5.
