It’s rather surprising to a large company like Sony directly shooting down reports such as from Bloomberg. However, given how the report has affected the company’s stock value, we can understand why they’d like to clarify on the whole situation.

With us getting closer and closer to the launch of the next generation of gaming consoles, PlayStation fans can rest assured that there will be no sudden reduction in PS5 units being shipped out, so it should still not be a trouble to get your hands on it this holiday season.
