PS4 demand could exceed supply says House


Sony has increased its PS4 sales forecast following a strong E3 2013, which could result in there being a shortage of consoles come launch.

Executive Andrew House told Wall Street journal  that “demand may well outstrip supply,” come launch. This is generally the case with new console launches anyway, so if you are determined to have a launch console then it's always best to pre-order early.

Are you planning to pick up a PS4? Have you pre-ordered already?

Well anyone could of told you that, and no matter what people say about Xbox one it will prob still sell out, new consoles always do on launch, and who wants to bet that the first batch will be dodgey

Amazon.com have already sorted out a 'launch' and a 'standard' edition of the PS4. Apparently E3 meant that product was in higher demand than they ever thought. Meh, aslong as I get mine...

I wish they did something like the XBOXs 'day one' console though. Unique controller, unique achievement(Not needed) and some nice packaging.

That's why at one point I had both consoles preordered, just so when I decided which i wanted my name was near the top of the list, in case they do run out, I decided on PS4 in the end, I feel dirty for even considering the one.

Supply shortage rumours about the PS4 launch have been floating around the internet for months, looks like they weren't rumours after all.

Or its a marketing trick to get more pre orders if people think there is a shortage they will do anything to get one for little johnny for Christmas.

No real surprise there. I'm glad I pre ordered my PS4 before E3, so should be ok to get mine on release.

David i think it's best if you left this site its for your own good, nobody takes you serious because off the way you are, hardly anything you type makes sense, you insult people and you don't understand what people are trying to say to you. I'm not being harsh im giving you a friendly piece of advice!

Sony seems to be aiming for global 2013 release -as its not region locked having different release dates will not make sense as people will just order it from other countries anyway. Microsoft... well xbone should be 2013 for the 21 countries its actually going to work in at launch.

I don't believe that info has been released yet but I could be wrong. Also it wouldn't be the first time a Game employee knew absolutely jack shit

i have decided to get both xbox one and ps4 as i have worked out i can afford both . so will get the best of both worlds and exculsive's on each console
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
That's how it's done, most people pick one and then just bash the other because it's "cool" even though they are both great systems, In my opinion i prefer the Xbox, always have I just think their service is better but i also like Playstation and have had PS1 PS2 PS3 and will prob get PS4.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Same i have preferred the xbox but have always had a playstation as well so planning on getting both. Have the xbox with Ryse, Dead rising, battlefield and watchdogs preordered and PS4 with killzone. Been saving since the start of the year for it. Going to try and hold out for assasins creed on one of them as well but theres no rush for that.
 TruDarkAssassin's avatar

the ps4 will be my main console and the xbox just for the other games you cannot get on the ps4 , just thought i would get the xbox as a early christmas present for myself . was always planning to get both any way
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago

@Kratos, how many games do you plan on getting at launch for each console? I was thinking about getting both but don't think I can afford both, will wait and see what the money situation is like closer to the time. But PS4 remains my priority. Over the last few days I've been reading up about Knack and I think it might be one of the games I get with my PS4. Offers something a little different.

I'm waiting on Disgaea 4, Kingdom Hearts 1.5, FFX/X-2, Persona 5 (if it doesn't end up Wii U exclusive like rumoured) Tales of Symphonia HD, Time & Eternity and most likely Agarest: This year's release. Do Watch Dogs and Assassin's Creed count as last gen or this gen? They're out on both so. I'm sure there'll be more eventually.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
Isnt disgaea 4 already out? I know theres a new one coming out thats a direct sequel to the first and not a standalone one. I forgot about tales of xilia as well. I would go for Assasins Creed and Watch dogs on next gen it will look nicer.
Zombieflamingo's avatar

Yeah I meant D2. Although not touched Disgaea 4 yet hahaha. Pikmin and Pokemon count as current gen (as in 3DS, Vita, Wii U, PS4 and Xbone) Yeah forgot about Tales of Xillia too, so add that to the list. Will rent Last of Us or buy when it's down to £15 or so which should be a month or so's time too, same with Remember Me.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
Rent Remember Me, it starts of Ok-ish, moves to enjoyable but then goes downhill fast. I doubt The Last of Us will go down in price that fast

Thats awesome Robi. + I borrowed a lot of money from my ISA account to pay for my PC which I still need to pay back. Christmas time is a guess at when I'll have the money for a PS4; but I won't know for certain. I mean there is the steam summer sale coming up soon..

Steam summer sale, I've been waiting for this since 2012 christmas sale :) summer sale is the time of year i buy a crap load of games that I don't play lol I've still got about 20 games i bought last summer that I've yet to play
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
