The PS5 and Xbox Series X are still real rarities. Intel’s CEO has now made a new forecast on the situation – and draws a fairly dark picture for gamers.
The chip crisis of the gaming industry continues and affects the production of graphics cards, the PS5 and Xbox Series X . Intel’s CEO, PAT Gelsinger, has now commented on the semiconductor shortage – and corrected his availability forecast to the dismay of all gamers.
PS5 & Xbox: scarcity should continue until 2024
Gelsinger had announced in an earlier forecast that the semiconductor and thus console shortage would last until 2023. In a new interview, however, he now suspects that would expand the situation until 2024 .
As the reason for his ominous forecast, Gelsinger stated that the scarcity no longer exclusively the resources for the semiconductor, but also the required tools for production . As a result, there could not be enough chips in the factories and no balance between supply and demand could be achieved. (Source: CNBC)
next-gen-consoles remain in short supply
Even if, of course, it remains to be hoped that Gelsinger is wrong with his 2024 forecast, Gamer must at least still come to terms with the chip shortage for the near future **. The PS5 in particular is affected by the situation: the Sony console comes on the market again and again for a short time, but unfortunately it always disappears within a very short time.
The Xbox Series X, on the other hand, has also not been able to resist in the past few months, but still a little easier than the new PlayStation-Microsoft’s Next-Gen console is currently also available in Xbox-All-Access bundle from Cyberport. So you can secure the Xbox together with a 24-month game pass subscription .
