PS4 Components Shipping Ahead Of Xbox One Components?
The PlayStation 4 will be a hot item when it debuts later this year, and it appears Sony is already gearing up to meet the increased demand.
According to a recent DigiTimes report, components for Sony's new console have already started shipping, "and volumes may reach one million units per month by September for the year-end holidays."
At the same time, Microsoft Xbox One components aren't expected to start shipping until the third quarter. The PS4 is being manufactured by Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry). The Xbox One is being produced by Pegatron Technology, with components supplied by Lite-On IT, Lite-On Technology, Foxlink, Asia Optical, Kinko Optical, Newmax, Foxconn Technology, Coxon, Nishoku, Elite Advanced Laser, Tong Hsing Electronic Industries, Adda, Delta Electronics, Chicony Electronics and Neng Tyi. Uh...that's a lot of companies. The Xbox One is like a cacophony of exotic components, or something.
But anyway, none of this should really effect the launch dates (both systems are expected to launch in November). This just means that thankfully, there may be enough PS4s to go around when it arrives.
