2020 has been quite the year as we slowly come to its end. A global pandemic largely brought the world to a standstill for several months, and several regions are still trying to figure out ways to recover. Because of that many things got canceled and delayed, and there was some concern that the launch of the next generation consoles would be pushed into 2021. But both Sony and Microsoft have held firm in holiday 2020, and in Sony’s case, it seems pretty likely at this point.

According to a new report from DigiTimes, Taiwanese based backend companies have begun their PS5 shipments. The two companies they reference are ASE Technology and Greatek Electronics. ASE provides semiconductor manufacturing and testing services while Greatek provides integrated circuit assembly. This also tracks with AMD who say that the competent they’ve manufactured for Sony’s system is also set to ship on schedule.

It was recently reported that Sony doubled their hardware production request up to 10 million units by December, so while this falls in the rumor category, it seems likely enough. Though how plentiful stock will be in the beginning is anyone’s guess, it definitely seems Sony will have their system on the shelves by this holiday.
