PlayStation Fans Are Still Waiting In Line For Hours To Secure PS5 Consoles

Why the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are so elusive requires an answer that has layers. Like an onion. First and foremost, the pandemic affected countries in Asia before the virus spread to the rest of the world. This caused a significant slowdown in the productivity of manufacturing hubs used by companies like Apple, Sony, Microsoft and so on.

Then, there was the shortage of semiconductors to contend with - tiny chips that are inside cameras, consoles, cars and nearly everything else that you'd consider a "smart" product. "We have not been able to fully meet the high level of demand from customers [but] we continue to do everything in our power to ship as many units as possible to customers who are waiting for a PS5," said chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki earlier this year.

God of War Ragnarök, which is inbound for the PlayStation 4 and 5 in 2022, recently revealed some awesome gameplay as well as a number of new neighbours in Midgard. Check it out below!

The fact that it's almost been an entire year since the console was released and customers are still struggling to find one is astonishing. That's not considering the impact of scalpers on the price of these products if you're not willing to wait for an official restock.

News of a restock in the United Kingdom is light on the ground at the moment, yet it is likely that Very and Argos are getting a restock of the PlayStation 5 next week. May the odds be ever in your favour.
