A new report claims that Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo plan to reduce console production in China. This came a week after the three of them followed other technology companies in expressing their concern over US President Donald Trump's trade dispute with the country.

Based on reports from the Nikkei Asian Review (through Games Industry), console manufacturers have joined Amazon, Dell, HP and Google in increasing Chinese production.

"The industry consensus is to move an average of around 30 percent of production from China depending on how important the US market is," a supply chain analyst told the Nikkei. "Everyone needs to make a plan. Apple is really the last and the slowest to start formulating a plan, while everyone out there is far more aggressive. "

Meanwhile, an official from Chongqing city, a hotspot for laptop production, said that the uncertainty caused by the trade war had helped reduce orders.

Darson Chiu, an economist at the Taiwan Institute of Economic Research, also said that while products might become more expensive in the US, the Chinese economy would have to prepare for a big impact because companies that move production would hamper economic growth and result in job losses. Thus increasing the unemployment rate.

Many hopes that the recent G20 Summit in Osaka, Japan, will cool things between the US and China but economists have no hope. Therefore, a senior US official still wants the country to remain blacklisted.

"We think [trade war] will be a big story next year, just like it was a big story last year," Bank of America Merrill Lynch economist Ethan Harris told Fortune. He added that the G20 summit was only a "storm eye."

While Sony and Nintendo have not responded to the report, Microsoft told the Nikkei that "there are no active plans to attract manufacturers" from China.
