    Looks like anything popular with a chip in it could be facing the same fate.

    Looking at the 2nd market, the stock-demand curve seem to be stabilizing.
    Scalpers are selling at near MSRP.
    Yeah, will say though that the GPU market was never anywhere near normal. Apart from the crazy prices, there doesn't seem to be any stock of 3070, 3080 or 3090 cards.

    Think everyone can admit that there's no escaping those shortages.

    My view is that production is on par with that of the PS4 and previously that of the PS3.

    What has changed:
    MS ****ed up so people jumped to playstation.
    More people at home wanting to kill time.
    Every country in the world is now part of the same supply (no 6 months difference in release)

    So in my eyes its 6 months later, Sony has produced 1 mil units a month just like every month ...well I guess its 2 million given they have sold 14 mil units. To me that means production is normal. Supply is normal. Demand is not and remember you have 2-3 years of demand that wants to be fulfilled in the first few months.

    Let's not forget how many people picked up gaming during the PS4 era.

    There's a mainstream feel about gaming now that didn't exist in this country when I was in highschool (PS3 era). This growth was before the pandemic even hit.

    The point is you have a set amount of production available to you. You can up that production with more production plants but your not going to build a plant with an immediate 10 mil production a month then scale if off over the next year. You will estimate a production run and produce enough to saturate the demand over a long time and demand is the highest at launch.

    However take Nintendo and the WiiU. If they went all in thinking it would hit Wii levels and they planed to saturate that demand in say 5 years rather than the normal way they would have released 20 million WiiU's in the first year and 40mil at the end of year 2. It would have been a massive loss even more so than normal.
