Sony has doubled the number of next-generation game consoles “PlayStation (PS) 5” to be launched during the year-end sales season and decided to reach 10 million units by the end of the year.

As reported by Nikkei Asian Review and Bloomberg, Sony had originally planned to produce 5-6 million consoles by the end of March 2021, but the change in demand due to the global pandemic has caused it to change course.

Sony is said to have begun PS5 mass production in June and “under the latest plan, expects to assemble 5 million units by the end of September and another 5 million between October and December.”

PS5 is a new model for the first time in 7 years from PS4. The price of the main unit and the release date has not been announced.
