In China, PlayStation 5 was more popular than iPhone 12 Pro Max
This is an interesting comparison: both the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the PlayStation 5 went on sale at almost the same time in the same market (in this case, the Chinese one). Both devices are in short supply, but the game console turned out to be in short supply than a smartphone.
Apparently, the demand for the PlayStation 5 far exceeds the supply. So much so that the console cannot be bought in China. But the iPhone 12 Pro Max can be bought, although it is difficult. At the same time, the cost of the PlayStation 5 has grown dramatically: if the amount of pre-order in Hong Kong at first was 3300 yuan or that same $500, now it reaches 8000 yuan or $1210! On the iPhone 12 Pro Max, prices don't go up that much.
It should be noted that sold out PlayStation 5 is celebrated in all countries where sales have already begun. For example, on eBay, confirmed orders or real devices are now selling for $ 800-2000. According to analysts, the PlayStation 5 shortage will last until the end of the year.
