After the Sony PlayStation 5 was released last November, it’s been nearly impossible to get one. Stores like Best Buy, Sony Direct, GameStop, Amazon and others have been releasing batches of the console, but they only last for a few minutes. And the queue is so long, you have to be luckier than someone winning the lottery, to be able to get one.
With the current semiconductor shortage happening, it’s likely that this will continue into the rest of 2021, and even into 2022 as many analysts are predicting. The chip shortage isn’t just affecting smartphones and gaming consoles, but basically everything you buy that has electricity.
