Although in the last hours the cargo ship Ever Given was refloated, stranded last week in the Suez Canal and crippling most distribution of goods between Asia and Europe, the incident with the huge ship blocked one of the world’s main freight routes which accounts for 10% of global traffic. Six days of ship traffic blocking causing millions of losses to the global economy and, sadly, hurting gamers who hope to finally buy a popular PS5.
As if it wasn’t hard enough to get a PlayStation 5, due to the consoles shortage caused by the Covid pandemic and resulting semiconductor shortage
Business Insider Says Delays Caused By Stranded Ship could be felt in the coming months, because hundreds of ships had to wait for the problem to be resolved until this morning, when 10 giant tugs managed to free the Ever Given. It is expected that over the next few weeks getting a PS5 might be a bit more difficult than today.
