The ongoing global chip shortage means that it could be tougher to buy everything from a PS5 to a Ford truck for the next few months. But fixing the problem might need bigger changes to both how we manufacture processors and the supply chain at large.

    What tech are you hoping to buy soon that's currently suffering from supply issues because of the chip shortage?

    The biggest factor is Trump's trade war... The damage Trump did to the global supply chain is coming back to haunt the US and the world. Biden is maintaining that aggressive attempt suppression of China. It is not going to end well.

    Intel's $20 billion is not close to enough if the US wasn't to be semiconductor independent. The US government needs to step on and spend at least 10-20x this and quickly. (Which is still only something like a quarter of the defence budget EACH YEAR, so easily doable)
    America could invoke some more Patriot Acts to force America companies to exclusively make chips in America or ban them like Huawei!
    It would pay for itself pretty quickly that way, bring the much needed increase in chip production capacity the world needs but more importantly it would give the US the independence they so desperately want in these potentially uncertain times.

    Took me till March 9th to secure an order from GameStop and only reason I got it was because it was a bundle and was over $700 almost 800 with tax. If you priced it out I only paid $3-4 dollars over if I had bought everything separate. But I didn’t want the spider man or COD game or the $20 dollar GameStop gift card. But it was the only way I could secure one, I kinda lazily tried before the but that week I ramped up my efforts. Haha I have maybe played for total of 5-8 hours since then total. I’m 40 and have 2 small kids and not a lot of time.

    I kind of feel sorry for everyone that has bought the PS5. The reason why is, I strongly believe that this shortage will not be lifted until about 2023 and then it will take about 2 to 3 years after that until enough people have the system to make it justifiable for the developers to make games exclusively for the PS5. The problem is by that time, it will be time for Sony to start winding down the PS5 and promoting the PS6. So, at this point Sony has two options. They can either not promote the PS6 and still push for the PS5, which then will cannibalize the PS6 when it comes out and then will make the people who jump to the PS6 really late in the product lifecycle, which then will just rippled to all subsequent generations, or they can just stop promoting the PS5 and just accept the PS5 as a failure and push the PS6, which will then stop the ripple and keep it confined to the PS5. I don’t see them being able to do both because it would be contradictory and just be confusing to the customers. So, I think the most business sense would be to do the latter. If you think about it Sony has already started to do this. They have had meetings about this and that is why you see all the AAA games being push back as far as they can push them. So, I think they are going to try and keep most of the good games held back as far as possible and make them for the PS6 and make the library of games for the PS5 scarce. It seems like the AAA games that are being released first are the ones that had the least interest in them. So, again, I kind of feel bad for whoever bought the PS5 as I strongly believe it is going to be the least supported generation of console.

      TSMC makes the chips for much of the world, and the devices used throughout the world aren’t much different than the ones in the US. If we’re sharing mostly the same devices, then we’re all pulling from the same pool of chips, so if there’s a chip shortage in the US, there will probably be one everywhere else too. This is why one of the people in the video brought up that Intel is increasing domestic supply, so we don’t have a single bottleneck like TSMC making chips for everyone and not being able to keep up with demand.
