The Chip Shortage Affecting Gaming ‘Will Remain Very Tight’ Until at Least Next September

The chip shortage currently affecting all parts of the gaming is likely to not end until the end of next year, according to Toshiba.

In a new report from Bloomberg, the letter states that Toshiba Corp., one of the largest manufacturers of power chips in graphics cards, gaming consoles, and more, states that chip shortages are likely to continue by the end of 2022.

IGN had previously reported the chip shortfall, saying Intel believed it could extend by 2023, and the new Bloomberg report appears to confirm this timeline.

Toshiba director Takeshi Kamebuchi told Bloomberg that “the supply of chips will remain strong until September next year.”

Kamebuchi also said some of Toshiba’s customers will not be fully supplied with all the chips they need until 2023.

However, Toshiba does not say which customers, so perhaps Sony and Microsoft will not find themselves waiting until 2023 to get the chips they need on their PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S consoles.

Kamebuchi cites material shortages and the need to constantly skip the chip as reasons for Toshiba’s failure to fulfill orders.

With this chip shortfall likely to last until 2023, Toshiba plans to invest $ 545 million in its production between now and 2024 to increase the output of its electric semiconductors, according to Bloomberg.

“We look at which customer is facing the most difficult situation, such as the risk of the entire product line being suspended or the business terminated without the delivery of chips,” Kamebuchi told Bloomberg.

“Game console makers are among the customers who make strict demands and I am very sorry for their frustration as none of them have 100% satisfaction.”

And then the struggle to easily buy a PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, or a new PC graphics card is in progress.
