    Sony: "PS4 'generally sold out at all retailers"

    It is still early on since the releases of the X1 and PS4. Lots have been reported about the sales figures on the two consoles and it would seem Sony has a real winner on its hands. During an internal meeting, Sony stated its recent sales figures are overwhelmingly positive and the numbers of consoles being sold are still screaming.

    PS4’s are generally sold out at all retailers although regular supply is refreshing the channel,” Sony said on a slide shown during an internal presentation. Sony also mentioned,they have increased its market share among as what they describe as “heavy gamers.”

    “[The PlayStation 4 launch] hasn’t been like prior ones… this is a story of engagement,” vice president of PlayStation marketing John Koller reportedly said. He continued, “When demand outstrips supply, the promise of what’s to come is really critical.”

    During the PS4′s six weeks of availability in 2013 alone, Sony announced that it sold more than 4.2 million consoles during that time.

    They're well on the way to that mark. Expect some interesting news in the next week or so.

    Sold out at all retailers? Is this old or something?

    They are available all over the place in my area.

    I do not understand why the actual websites show there are no consoles available. Target had 5 consoles last night, and have had at least 4 consoles for sale every time I went there during the last 2 weeks. Gamestop had PS4 consoles available as well last night. They are next door to each other.

    However, when I go to their websites, it shows they have none available. I know for a fact that Gamestop has some, because I called to see if they did.

    When I looked at this site a few hours ago Gamestop had some marked as In Stock but they appear to be all gone now. (Not sure how accurate this site is though)

    I've only seen PS4s post launch in the wild once and they were gone the next time I was at that store so I believe it. Xbox One on the other hand...

    Could be some of those PS4 reported to be in store are pre-orders still being filled. Gamestop said they had a 2 million pre-order line in January and that was just last month. Pretty sure there are zero PS4 on floors and out on the shelf. A few behind the counter and in the backroom maybe but also probably sold and just waiting to be picked up. With this latest number of 5 million, adding the Japan launch numbers next week, it's going to be above 6 million and probably closer to 7 million. Then Sony starts shipping retail shelf units to all the other countries that have launched and still have waiting lists.

    I've seen a few PS4's on shelves in the wild, and each time I've seen people buying them. I was at a Walmart and they had 3 by the time I left 20 min later, two of them were sold. I was at a Target last week and they had 5 and I watched one get sold. Then again at a walmart they had 2 and I watched one get sold.

    Meanwhile my local Toys R US still has two day one edition Xbox ones.. Every store has full shelves of Xbox ones. Honestly I'm quite surprised at how hard the PS4 is to find in stores still.

    Might want to, those just went up today I thought I read. They seem harder to get in a store. I was in a gamestop yesterday and someone returned one, it was sold immediately.

    To all the people who say there's always some stock in store's are really lucky to find them in the wild or life in the US or UK. I live in europe (Belgium) There not a single new PS4 that you can buy directly . Even until now the retailers are unable to fullfill all preorders! Estimated waiting time is 6 to 12 weeks. If you want one you also have to preorder and get in line with the rest. I heard the same is happening in the neighboring country Holland.

    Sony is sending most of there stock were Microsoft has a strong foothold! Thats why US en UK are restockt at a regular basis. It doens't really bother me cus i have enough on PS+ to keep me busy for a couple more months before i make te switch to next gen.

    I actually funded it by siphoning resources into a midget porn site I've been running on PSU's servers. Might have something to do with the 500 errors.

    shhhhh....don't tell Steven.

    Of course the PS4 is sold out at retailers. I mean, it is the pinnacle of console gaming after all.

    Just came from Walmart and they didn't have any. I see Amazon has some stock again though. 2 more weeks for me!
