PlayStation 5 and new Xbox to be delayed due to Coronavirus?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the nation of China is dealing with a very strong Cold typed virus being named Wuhan Coronavirus. It is widespread in China, a dozen cases in Japan and a few here in the United States of America. The Coronavirus will only really prove to be a threat if you live in a bad health area and don’t take care of yourself which in China, where most techonlogy and game hardware is made, is seeing closures in work businesses to contain the virus spread.

At this time, the Coronavirus is looking to hinder the PS5 and new Xbox hardware production, which it already has hit the Nintendo Switch and has delayed the new Animal Crossing theme Switch to an unknown time. The following quote from the above article can paint a bad picture for the upcoming holiday 2020 season:

“The video game sector is currently manufacturing, or beginning to, a once-in-several-years’ product generation change for the 2020 holiday season,” a note from Jefferies Group published this week says. “If [company] shutdowns exceed a month or so, game schedules will be delayed. New consoles may likewise suffer supply issues from a prolonged disruption, ahead of their Fall 2020 planned launches.”

The real question is, do you want to handle anything from China in the near future at the risk of the virus still lingering on the fresh made product? Let us know below or on the Gaming Latest forums.
