The Tokyo-based electronics giant in July boosted orders with suppliers in anticipation of heightened demand for gaming in the holiday season and beyond, as people spend more time at home due to the coronavirus.

Sony's shares fell by 2.4 percent by close on Tuesday following this news.

According to Bloomberg, yields have been gradually improving but they haven't yet reached a stable level so there's no guarantee that production will catch up in time.

Analysts are concerned that SOC production issues can result in an increase in the component's cost, which will impact Sony's profits. It seems Sony finally intends to pull back the curtain on price and release date at tonight's event, which means we can finally put an end to the months of speculation and leaked retail listings.

Microsoft has revealed the price of both the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. While gamers can purchase the console outright, Microsoft also has an extremely competitive payment plan available around the globe called Xbox All Access. Meanwhile the effects of COVID-19 has led to various complications both for production and distribution. Consumers will be able to preorder the next-gen consoles starting 11 AM ET / 8 AM PT on September 22.

Sounds like a good solution to us, what do you think about this? A Stadia version will follow in early 2021.
