PS5 stock warning – PlayStation 5 could soon be even harder to buy in the UK
PS5 stock could be even harder to come by in the coming weeks. That’s according to the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter account which warned that demand for the PS5 is expected to rise “drasically”. Demand for the PS5 — which has been hard to come by since its launch nearly a year ago — is expected to increase as students return to education and workers return from summer break.
the @PS5StockAlertUK Twitter account posted: “We expect demand to increase dramatically after September as students return to education and employees return to work (those on vacation).”
While there is an imminent threat of the PS5 console becoming even more scarce, fears have also been raised that current supply shortages could continue for a few more years.
That’s according to Toshiba’s Takeshi Kamebuchi, who said the current PS5 stock shortage situation isn’t expected to change anytime soon.
Kamebuchi-san said supply restrictions on chips used in the production of the PS5 are expected to continue for another year.
And in some cases, customers won’t be able to get their hands on a PS5 until 2023.

Speak with Bloomberg, said the Yoshida director in charge of semiconductors: “The supply of chips will remain very tight until at least September next year.
“In some cases, we may find that some customers will not be fully served until 2023.”
