According to a Digitimes source, Sony will fail to meet its projected shipment of 12-16 million PlayStation 4 consoles in 2013.
The site claims that Sony has not yet sent any instructions to the related upstream supply chain, suggesting PS4’s mass shipment schedule has hit a road block.
The hardware manufacturer said earlier this year that it will begin shipping its next-generation console in June. August would see shipments ramped up, with volumes reaching as much as 20 million units this year.
Sony announced PS4 during a special event in New York City back in February, where the company announced a holiday 2013 launch window for the new console.
