Report: Sony will have 16 million PS4 consoles available at launch

According to sources from the companies making PS4 components, Sony is aiming to have 16 million PlayStation 4 units available at launch this year, with component shipments happening sometime in August.

According to the DigiTimes, the aforementioned sources have detailed that Foxconn Electronics and Pegatron Technology are manufacturing the console, with the beginning phase having already started. Once August arrives, the components will do the same, and full-scale console production will begin.

By the looks of it, Sony isn’t playing around with PS4’s launch and wants to ensure that everyone who wants a next-gen console will get one–a stark contrast to stifled console and technology launches of recent years.
