PS5 Production Demands
Sony wary of overestimating the demand for PlayStation 5 at launch
PlayStation 5 is still expected to launch late this year, and according to anonymous sources close to Sony they are not manufacturing as many consoles for launch as they have in earlier generations.
Sony apparently wants to avoid producing too much hardware considering the unit costs. Assembly partners have been told that Sony plans to manufacture 5-6 million units by the end of the fiscale year in March 2021.
- Expected price range: $499 to $549
- The COVID-19 pandemic could still impact Sony’s plans
- DualSense reveal was hurried to avoid leaks
- PlayStation 4 sold 7.5 million units in six months
Bridge building: The anonymous source say Sony will still depend on the PlayStation 4 to bring users to their service platform and it is very likely that Sony will cut the price of both PlayStation 4 models after the PlayStation 5 launches.

InXile made you face your worst fear
InXile Entertainment’s 2004 action adventure The Bard’s Tale featured plenty of cheeky humour and an avalanche of snark as well as being the first third-person 3D game in the long-running series.
The jokes started even before you had a chance to fire up the game. The game disc said “For A Really Disturbing Image… Flip Disc Over”. What terrifying vision you can never unsee awaited you on the flip side of the disc? Why, your own horrifying mug reflected back at you, of course – what did you expect?
GTA 6 Rumours
Grand Theft Auto 6 in early stages of development, possibly smaller scope
It’s not exactly surprising that Rockstar is working on a new entry in the most successful videogame franchise ever, but Grand Theft Auto 6 may not necessarily continue the series’ trajectory towards ever-grander game worlds – at least not at launch.
Rockstar is apparently trying to do something about the crunch culture in their studios, and one of the solutions they are considering is making sure Grand Theft Auto 6 has a manageable scope.
Smaller crime-spree: A more manageable project means less crunch, and then the team can work to add content over time after launch. Rockstar planned DLC for Grand Theft Auto V, but decided to focus on Grand Theft Auto Online instead
New management: “…in the last year Rockstar has made several quality-of-life improvements and replaced managers that staff described as toxic,” according to Kotaku. Co-founder Dan Houser left Rockstar earlier this year, while his brother Sam Houser remains President of the studio.
