Videogame product shortages will boost holiday console-ation prizes
Product shortages surrounding a hot new tech product are nothing new, routine even when that item is a game console. And so it wouldn’t be much of a surprise that those with their heart set on picking up the latest generation from Sony or Microsoft would be business as usual… except that those consoles launched last year and that their shortages could extend to 2023.
About half of those intending to purchase a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S have had already had difficulty in trying to buy one.
How has the unprecedented chip shortage affected consumers’ ability to purchase tech products and what impact will it have on this holiday season?
