After smart cars, Huawei is now selling Sony PlayStation 5 gaming console on its online store

Published

on


In April, Sony launched the new PlayStation 5 (PS5) gaming console, as it comes in two variants for Chinese consumers, Digital and Storage Edition featuring a price tag of 3099 yuan and 3899 yuan respectively.

The pre-sale of the Sony PS5 was opened through multiple platforms and it was sold out very fast. However, the number of PlayStation players is not large in China, but many players still want to grab a piece because it was sold out before they can get one.

But there’s more interesting that’s going on at the moment, because after listing a smart car on its official store, Huawei has now officially listed the Sony PlayStation 5 console on Vmall that will start to sell from May 15 (today).

Last month, Huawei began to sell Huawei Smart Selection SF5 smart car on the online store, which is the first of its kind product. According to a recent report, this smart car has recently crossed 10000 initial orders.

It’s really good news for the players, who have not missed the PS5 in pre-sale. They can visit Vmall and try again to purchase. One thing worth mentioning that Huawei Mall has only Standard Edition for sale.

The Sony PS5 was available on most of the Chinese e-commerce platforms and currently, all versions and package versions have been sold out. On this, Sony officials said that the PS5 shortage is due to strong demand, but one of the biggest reasons is the lack of parts such as semiconductors, which is required to manufacture this product and bring it among consumers.
