PS4 stock shortages to continue into the summer

If you’re struggling to get your mitts on a PS4 you might have a substantial wait ahead of you, as Sony suggests stock shortages will continue into the summer.

Despite some 6 million PS4 consoles having been sold to date, the Japanese manufacturer has revealed that the ongoing PS4 stock shortages look likely to continue for at least a further few months.

“We’re struggling to keep up with demand,” Andrew House, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment told the Wall Street Journal.

Conservatively, as we get into the early summer months, we’ll be closer to a full supply situation.

House’s delay confirmation is the latest knock to expectant gamers, with Sony just last month suggesting PS4 stocks would be readily available by April.

“Based on what I’ve seen so far, I think it is going to be tricky until around about April,” Fergal Gara, Sony’s Head of PlayStation UK said in February.

At the time he added: “You might get a fortnight or a week here or there where it is more available, but we should be back to free supply by about April.”

Despite having been in short supply since launch last November, the PS4 continues to outsell the rival Xbox One.

Although Microsoft’s next-gen console received a spike from Titanfall, latest monthly sales figures have shown that the PS4 remains the console of choice for most gamers.
