It emerged on Thursday that Sony appears to have registered a new PS5 model in Japan.
The company recently received build design certification for what appears to be a new model in the “CFI-1200” series with updated radio equipment.
The product has received design certification from the Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, which guarantees that radio and wireless communication equipment meets certain technical standards.
Sony said on Tuesday it shipped 11.5 million PS5 consoles in its fiscal year ending March 2022, missing its original target of 14.8 million consoles by more than three million units, which it said was due to parts shortages.
However, the company said it expects to sell significantly more PS5 consoles in its current fiscal year ending March 2023, at around 18 million units.
“18 million units is what we feel very comfortable with, we can get the parts and components for [during FY22]“said CFO Hiroki Totoki.
“We think there’s a bit more demand than that, so if the question is whether we can meet the demand, I think we’re still a bit short.”
