Like I said before, I have an Xbox Series S and to be honest, I wanted to get a PS5 but at this point and time, I don't think it's possible and there is no way in hell I'm going to buy from a scaper. But that is not the point of this thread being made. I know a lot of people are going to disagree and myself included, but................at the rate we are going with next-gen consoles being extremely rare. Both PlayStation and Xbox need to rethink how their plans are going to be for next-gen till this shortage goes away. If it ever does go away. I think they need to extend their support for last-gen till this goes away, yes you read that right. It even burns my eyes writing this. But hear me out.
Sony is now saying that they are making plans to cut down and restructure the PS5 to meet up with demands, and the shortage probably won't end till 2021 to 2022, maybe longer. Right now these chips are going to be sold to the highest bidder and since videogames are not a priority for some, both companies are going to have issues getting enough chip supplies. Why would I say this well because phones and computers or tablets are important for these companies to make. As more and more people work from home myself included. -- This is where the solution comes in, both companies are going to force themselves to support last-gen till 2023 or longer depending on how long this shortage lasts.
I don't like the stupid idea of me even writing this but at this rate, if both companies want to survive they have three choices.......
1. If the game can't run on the last-gen, delay till they are able to get enough people on board with the next-gen to even release the game.
2. Risk the game running horribly, release it till meet ends meet.
3. Run around in circles and hope for the best.
Like I said I don't like the idea but it's a solution for all, till this issue gets resolved, if it ever does. Cause bad news, after bad news keeps coming out. No good news has come out from both companies stating they are capable of meeting up with demands. I don't know maybe in a few months. This crap will blow over and everyone will get lucky and get a next-gen console. Who knows, all I know is if devs start making games next-gen only I can see a disastrous result come back.
I don't know maybe I'm wrong in all this and this is just a dream.
So to anyone who has a next-gen console on here, count your blessings because at this point you are sitting on the rarest device ever at this point, rarer than a damn iPhone.
Edit ---- Damn I must've pissed off everyone, like I said things will not get any better. When we see horrible sales on these next-gen only because of lack of people buying the new gen. You'll see.
