Multiple reports of PS4 Pro shipments being delayed due to production issues. It appears to be related to the ongoing heating problem in the console hardware. The news surfaced when several users reported of receiving messages from Amazon about delayed shipments of the PS4 Pro. It doesn’t appear to be a supply vs demand situation but Sony might try to spin it that way.
Why are PS4 Pro shipments being delayed?
Originally it was rumored the brand new console had an over-heating problem and this recent news could mean that the rumors were true. Sony isn’t talking too much about the PS4 Pro realistically that all and this could be one of the reasons. This could mean the launch will be delayed or there will be limited consoles on launch day.
We have yet to hear anything about the PS4 Pro going gold but we keep hearing about overheating issues in the new console. Sony might be trying desperately to figure something out and the delay in shipping is evidence of that. Hopefully, they solve the problem soon because, after the Nintendo Switch, this is the most anticipated console of this year at least.
At the moment, if you have pre-ordered the console you should be getting emails from Amazon (or whatever site you pre-ordered on) regarding the delay. Also, if Sony doesn’t fix the problem completely this could be troublesome. Because most console players keep their consoles on all day 24/7, so this could affect them substantially. Hence, this is a potential hazard that Sony needs to address before launch day.
It appears Sony isn’t talking about this at all so they could be simply brushing it under the rug. Before this, PS3 had technical issues as well which mostly includes the yellow ring. Anyways, let us know your thoughts about the PS4 Pro in the comments.
