MCV reports that the UK could experience a shortage of PlayStation 4 consoles for up to four months after its November 29 launch.

This problem for Sony stems from the fact that UK PS4 pre-orders have outstripped production; Sony is reportedly trying to claw back the shortage. However, even while doing so, Sony is concerned that European gamers who cannot get hold of a PS4 might buy the new Xbox One instead.

PS4 will be available on November 15 in North America and November 29 in the UK.
