Sony has lowered its forecast for the production of game consoles PlayStation 5. This was reported by the authoritative publication Bloomberg.
We are talking about internal plans and forecasts that were not disclosed to the public. It is reported that the company originally planned to assemble 16 million consoles between April 2021 and March 2022. Now the release plan for the current fiscal year has been reduced to 15 million.
Publicly, Sony has committed itself to investor sales of 14.8 million PS5 consoles in the current fiscal year. Thus, the downward revision of the plans was not very noticeable.
However, the decline in internal forecasts shows how limited sales will be for the foreseeable future. The slated for production of 16 million consoles allowed Sony to meet its annual sales target and secure additional inventory for the next year.
However, now it becomes clear that the deficit of PlayStation 5 in retail stores will not disappear and it will still be difficult to buy a new console.
It is noted that Sony is facing problems with logistics as well as supplying components, as the industry faces an unprecedented shortage of chips internationally. Components do not always arrive on time, and different levels of vaccinations and coronavirus measures are complicating operations at manufacturing bases, a Bloomberg report said.
That said, Sony predicts that 22.6 million PS5s will be sold in the next fiscal year, starting in April 2022. However, the manufacturing partners reportedly believe that achieving this goal will be difficult.
Anbernic to release $300 Windows 10 handheld game console in July
The Chinese company Anbernic will launch the Win600 handheld game console based on the AMD Athlon processor with Radeon Vega 3 graphics in July. The novelty will receive Windows 10 Home and Linux-based Steam OS support, as well as a price tag of $ 300.
Promised 8 GB of RAM, but only in single-channel mode. There will also be 128 or 256 GB in the form of an M.2 2242 SSD. The device will receive a design typical of such consoles, which includes a small screen, D-Pad, analog sticks, control buttons and triggers. Also, the novelty will receive active cooling, stereo speakers, as well as headphone and microphone outputs.
It seems that such a console would be well suited for running retro games or streaming games in the clouds. Given that the hardware is rather weak, it is unlikely that she will be able to run the same Cyberpunk 2077.
Earlier, we recall, AOKZOE introduced the A1 console with a much more powerful processor and graphics.
The GeForce RTX 3060 has taken the first place in popularity among Steam gamers. GeForce RTX 3050 is in the top 3
Steam has updated the statistics on the use of PC components by gamers, and the GeForce RTX 3060 came out on top in the June rating of video cards. Moreover, in two versions at once: mobile and desktop. Together, the two variants of these 3D accelerators are installed on over 5.5% of Steam users’ PCs.
In third place is the GeForce RTX 3050. The monthly increase is small – 0.18%, but this model has consistently grown in audience since the beginning of the year – and here is the result. Another discrete 3D card in Steam’s June Top 10 is the GeForce GTX 1660, all the rest are CPU-integrated GPUs.
Where is AMD? The best of the rest is in 33rd place in the ranking. Steam users have long preferred Nvidia AMD, and now the situation has not changed.
As for the central processors, then Intel strengthened its position somewhat – plus 0.68% in Linux-based systems and plus 1.28% in Windows-based systems. AMD, respectively, loses.
Ryzen 7 6800U, Radeon 680M, Integrated Lighting & Gyroscope: AOKZOE Unveils A1 Console
Chinese brand AOKZOE has unveiled its first handheld console called the A1. This device is based on AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor with Radeon 680M graphics core. The novelty will receive an 8-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels.
Other features include 16/32GB LPDDR5X-6400 RAM, built-in aiming gyroscope and vibration feedback motor, RGB lighting with 3 modes and 20 effects.
Separately declared cooling system with heat pipes and fans. We also note the presence of analog sticks, a 48/65 Wh battery and fast charging, as well as support for Windows 11 and Steam OS operating systems.
The console is said to pull Elden Ring at 60 FPS and Forza Horizon 5 at over 100 FPS. It should also be noted that a Standard and Ultimate edition is expected. The second, apparently, will receive a 65 Wh battery.
The release is expected in September, with more details coming in the coming weeks.
