So...shouldn't they secure more manufacturing, before getting launched in new markets?

agreed I remember this being discussed a few months after launch, but they may have obligations to their Chinese partners and don't want to burn bridges also , China might take it as a slight that they are being pushed back in the queue.

I suppose that is probably likely. Just sucks that they can't produce enough for the markets they are already in and now they are adding an even bigger market to the table.

PS5 is already dominating in China. Glad Sony is staying strong in that country. Probably seriously benefit in the long run.

The Chinese market will boost PS5 sales exponentially. Glad to see this.
