The Japanese company “Sony” continues to suffer greatly in the supply chains related to its new electronic game platform “PlayStation 5” (PS5), which was launched early last month.
A report by Bloomberg indicates that the rapid disappearance of the product from the market is linked to a ploy that brokers and retailers resort to allowing them to obtain the rare device in the market, and then resell it for high sums amounting to 3 times the original price announced by Sony during the launch the device.
Brokers have long been present in the sales scene of Sony’s electronic games platforms, but the consequences of the Corona pandemic this year have strengthened their presence in the scene and caused a major crisis in the market supply that may cast a negative shadow on the company’s long-term business prospects.
The emergence of brokers on the scene also caused outrage among users of electronic games around the world, with electronic campaigns on “Twitter” to boycott brokers and small retail companies that sell one unit of the new device at about $ 1,300 to $ 1,400, nearly three times the price announced by Sony. »Last November, levels around $ 500.
