_ 1 ½ years. For so long, Xbox Series and PlayStation 5 have already been on the market. You don’t think at all, because it doesn’t happen that long. But yes, the next genes or actually yes Current gen came on the market at the end of 2020, but the world situation is still a huge problem. The available quotas now last longer than to be released, but are nevertheless sold out briskly. The PlayStation is also a long distance from the eternal competitor Xbox with the fifth generation. At least still. Because the longer the hardware availability is tangled, the more Microsoft earns an advantage over Sony and also from pure coincidence!

Of course, I don’t predict the downfall of Sony and his Playstation – I’m not that crazy either. However, Xbox could again have important percentage points of Sony’s supremacy in the future. But let’s take a look at the current starting situation. Sony and Microsoft cut their current consoles out relatively at the same time in 2020. The demand is huge in this generation and all contingents to release were sold out within a few minutes. The next sales campaigns came and went and the picture repeated itself again and again.

“This will be a permanent state!”

It quickly became clear that this situation was not an initial rush, but the manufacturers still have massive problems to deliver supplies. The Xbox Series S is excluded here, but we will come to it. The reason for this is the supply chains for important electric components that cannot produce enough through corona apandemy. The Series S, which was created by temporary standards, could become the “forbidden” fruit for permanently empty-out playstation fans.

The extent can be recognized when you look at the latest figures from Sony that were recently published for the 2021/22 financial year. If you add up all sales since the release, you get a total of almost 20 million PS5 sold. Of course, this is an impressive number. In comparison with the previous PS4 model, however, you are at the back. You had already cracked the 20 million at this point and was on your way towards 30. So you sell less Playstation 5 because you can no longer produce and that is a problem for Sony.

by chance to the production winner

On the other hand, Microsoft is with the Xbox. Of course, you also have to deal with the hardware problems. However, the bizarre is that you still have better availability. Because Microsoft is the underdog compared to Sony, fewer people want to have an Xbox. The demand is not so huge and the provision of new consoles is more consistent. People who have not yet managed to get a PS5 potentially use the Xbox. Even if it is only out of resignation, because with Microsoft’s console you have at least a realistic chance to get hold of them.

The Xbox Series S, the entry -level model at Microsoft, also helps. It is much better to have and it is cheaper. Actually the perfect excuse to get them as a second device until the desired console comes at some point. On top of that, there are also unconfirmed reports that Microsoft can use the Series X simply sorted out for the Series S. This means that the lack of resources in a pandemic is much better off. Of course, Microsoft could not plan this in the development of the Series S. The focus was only on the price, but suddenly Corona was added and Schwups have a massive advantage in production. From pure coincidence.
