PlayStation 5 was released on November 12, 2020, and its rough launch was plagued by scalpers hoarding the units and less production due to the shortage of silicon supply. Nevertheless, over the course of seven months, Sony PlayStation has managed to bring the production up a notch and continued to beat its competition Xbox One X. By no means, the launch of PS5 is taken as a killing blow to PS4’s life cycle. In fact, according to Sony boss Jim Ryan, PS4 will continue to get more games in the coming years. This Sony’s strategy to release PS5 and at the same time continue producing video games for PS4 is a remarkable business practice. Even though hardware-wise, PS5 is far superior to a PS4, Sony played the cards right, and now both consoles have equal importance. This could be news to a few, and that is why we at eXputer have dedicated resources to funnel the information from the web and present hot news to our readers.
