In a wide-ranging interview with Japanese gaming bible Famitsu, Sony’s senior vice president of platform experience Hideaki Nishino hinted that 2023 will be “very important” for PS5. “I can’t talk about specifics at this time,” he said, via Google Translate, “but I hope you will look forward to next year.”
Nishino was asked about PS5’s stock problems, where he alluded to the aftermath of the console’s launch being more challenging than the lead-up to it. He pointed to lockdowns in cities like Shanghai as a huge headache for the firm, which has struggled to meet demand worldwide. He said that the situation was improving, however, and it aims to sell-through 37 million units by the end of March.
