The PS4 is doing amazing and is really this-generation’s Wii. Despite there being no big releases (until today), the PS4 has been consistently outselling its rivals the Xbox One and Wii U. Four months after launch it’s still hard to find a PS4 on store shelves, and it doesn’t look like that is going to change anytime soon.
Speaking with The Wall Street Journal at GDC 2014, PlayStation Head Andrew House confirmed that Sony is struggling to keep the PS4 on shelves. “We’re struggling to keep up with demand,” which has been highest in the U.S. and Europe, House said. “Conservatively, as we get into the early summer months, we’ll be closer to a full supply situation.”
Sony has confirmed that over 6 million PS4s have been sold to consumers. When stores get more shipments of the console they usually sell out fast and have to wait for another shipment. There have even been rumblings that Titanfall did little to dampen PS4 sales last week. With inFamous: Second Son, the PS4s first big exclusive of 2014, Sony is expecting for PS4s to continue flying off the shelf.
