A few days ago we talked about the possibility that Microsoft and Sony reduced their production in China to find new countries to locate. All this is given, as you know, by the trade war between the US and China, and by the recent tariffs that have increased labor costs linked to technology. The original article, published by Nikkei, indicated that Microsoft would move its production of Xbox and Surface to Thailand and Indonesia, stopping production in China.
However, Tom’s Hardware has spoken with Microsoft about the situation, and Apparently the company contradicts what Nikkei published: “we have not plan to do that”. Apparently they plan to stay in China. Still nothing is known from the other manufacturers, and HP has joined the concerns of the industry saying that tariffs and penalties are harmful, have preferred to delve into their ratings on the rumors.
