However, we do not know what the actual figures would be due to the lack of available machines. These arrive at the stores dropper due to the component shortage, which has been caused by the pandemic and could take longer than we think.
Therefore, from Sony PlayStation They seem determined to take action in view of the problem they are experiencing with PS5. As explained in Reuters, in relation to a publication in the Japanese media Nikkei, they would be trying to reach an agreement with a Taiwanese company for the construction of a chip factory in Japan.
TSMC is the world’s largest chip makerTSMC is the largest chip manufacturer in the world and would not only deal with creation for video games, but would also cover the automotive market, the camera market and a multitude of other products that have been affected by this problem. The Japanese government would financially support the project, which would require a approximate investment of about six billion euros, with the aim of decentralizing the creation of this type of components from Taiwan.
