PS5, Xbox Consoles May Soon be Available


The computer chip shortage that’s made gaming consoles difficult to find could be ending soon.

That’s the word from the New York Federal Reserve, which issued a statement Wednesday that reads, “Global supply chain pressures, while still historically high, have peaked and might start to moderate somewhat going forward.” Exactly when that moderation will occur is anyone’s guess, however.

While one team of analysts is predicting consoles will again become available in mid-2020, a number of retailers believe the supply chain crisis will continue through the end of the year. Still, others say it could be two years before things are back to normal.
