PS5 and Xbox Series X stock problems due to the COVID-19 pandemic are being investigated by the Biden administration, reports Reuters. President Joe Biden pledged a 100-day review of supply chains as well as $37 billion yesterday (February 24) to fund legislation that will accelerate manufacturing for chips used in the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The shortage of semiconductors has also affected production amongst US automakers, pharmaceutical companies, and other major manufacturers. The scarcity, which extends worldwide, has been "exacerbated by the pandemic" and was the main topic of a conversation between Biden and lawmakers yesterday. "I’m directing senior officials in my administration to work with industrial leaders to identify solutions to the semiconductor shortfall,” Biden announced. “Congress has authorized a bill but they need $37 billion to make sure that we have this capacity...I’ll push for that as well."
