Sony: Our Focus Is on PS4 Stock Levels So People Can Experience Next-Gen

Posted by Sammy Barker

Cracking the whip

We’re not sure that the PlayStation 4 could have sold better if it shipped with an image of Jessica Rabbit in the buff, as Sony has smashed record after record with its next generation machine. Despite that, the system still remains harder to find than a four-leafed clover in many parts of the world, but fortunately the platform holder has admitted that it’s fully committed to replenishing empty store shelves.

Speaking about the strong sales of the recently released super system, PlayStation UK managing director Fergal Gara stressed that it will be doing everything that it can to get the console into eager gamers’ hands. “Our focus now is [on] rebuilding stock levels so that those that have not been able to get a PS4 can finally experience the next-gen,” he said as part of a statement on the device’s outstanding British sales.

Late last year, the executive hinted that it may take months for the hardware supply to fulfil the ravenous demand. However, there are signs of new units arriving around the world, with a recent batch at Amazon.co.uk pushing the platform back to the top of the charts. Are you still struggling to secure a system of your own, or have you been part of the next-gen club for a while now? Hunt us down in the comments section below.

There are a few UK retailers that have ps4 in stock. Last night I noticed game and base had them in stock. I used stock in former.co.uk to grab my launch day console. Very handy.

I was going to get the Vita but i decided against it. (last minute decision) So i have $160 saved up for the PS4 at the moment, can't wait to get the PS4. :P

I hope Sony is able to meet the demand here in the US, i think by February or March they will. At least that's what they stated by that time they might be able to so hopefully they do.

Waited in line for 6 hours on launch day. It is hard to believe there is a shortage, i guess cause i have had mine for almost two months now. Its even harder to believe that we got them before japan... Whats with that?

Still nothing in AU. As far as I know, not a single PS4 has hit a shelf in any store. All done through pre-orders. They are still saying Feb/March. It is giving XBox a good opportunity, because some people won't wait.

Not sure how they are going to stock Japan and keep everyone one else happy.

Mines still on order with ISME, delivery for the end of February. Orders placed with them now have to wait until the end of March. This drought needs to subside soon, for the good of my sanity
