Sony’s Playstation 5 is far and away the most sought after next-generation console on the market, but the flipside to the system’s desirability is its extreme scarcity: the console typically sells out in seconds, with new supply being weeks or even months away due to chip shortages stalling production.

The Japanese technology company’s next-generation console first premiered in November 2020, but it’s still almost impossible to buy one for yourself. The company announced on Wednesday that it will increase production of its last major console, the Playstation 4, in order to offset its shortage of PS5s.

Sony has been forced to shake up its production strategy due to the effects of the global chip shortage paired with the massive demand for the PS5. Anonymous sources told Bloomberg that the company had initially planned to stop production of the PS4 before 2022. Now the company has pivoted to adding roughly a million PS4, depending on demand.
