    Sony says PS4 stock will remain limited until April

    http://www.psu.com/a022572/Sony-says...ed-until-April

    Speaking during an interview with MCV, the managing director for PlayStation U.K. has confirmed that PlayStation 4 will remain in limited supply until April.

    "I can't work it out precisely. But based on what I've seen so far, I think it is going to be tricky until around about April," explained Fergal Gara. "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."

    "That's our best guess. It might be a little earlier than that, or it might be a little later. But we'll get there."

    Gara went on to admit Sony has been surprised by the PS4ís massive success thus far, with the console selling over 5.3 million units worldwide.

    "PS4 pre-orders ... were so big that we were pinching ourselves and wondering if people were pre-ordering in more than one place, and if some of these pre-orders were real.

    "We were getting numbers we never imagined, let alone seen before. But it proved to be real. How do I reconcile that? I think the world has changed since we launched PS3."

    "It's been a pleasant surprise,Ē he said.

    Itís been just over a year since Sony made PS4 official during an announcement in New York City. The console later showed its face for the first time at E3 that year, before launching in the U.S. and Europe in November.

    How badly has this limit stock been hurting their sales? Even with it the system is selling extremely well.

    I can imagine it's annoying for them but at least they are still posting good sales I suppose!

    I'm still not seeing the PS4 in stores around me. I just hope I can find one when Infamous SS is released.

    Hard to tell, but if the units were there I think we might very well be at 8million by march.

    Nothing can stop this hype train, just like iPads the people get what they want in the end.
    Unlike iPad this machine won't be upgraded for another 6 years.

    PS4 has won.

    Damn. I predicted by the middle or end of March they would start to be slightly available. Looks like I was wrong.

    You never know what can come up over the course of the next few years, success longterm is not guaranteed. That said this is still a really good start and doesn't hurt them one bit.

    I've seen PS4's online on Best Buy and Amazon's sites here and there but they always sell out. I've only seen one once in a physical store and it was gone the next day.

    I would have bought one a few days ago if i could find one. I finally got my tax return back and have the cash to blow on a PS4 now. I'm guessing there's a lot of people in the same boat.

    April this stinks for the people trying to find one ..Sony should have only launched in North America and Europe only.
    They where going to win anyways.
