Sony hope to have more PS4 stock, 'probably' within a week of launch

It sounds like Sony are planning to meet demand on the PS4 as fast as they can, with a new report suggesting that a second wave of PlayStation 4 stock will "probably" become available within the first week of the console's UK launch.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Sony UK MD Fergal Gara it's "working with retailers" on determining final allocations, although added that it's unlikely you'll be able to buy a PS4 off the shelf on launch day.

"Some people have decided, right, turn off the pre-orders completely because I want to have a bit of free stock on day one," he said. "Others are saying the fairest thing to do is keep the list going, and the first on the list gets the first console. Basically they're behaving in a linear fashion rewarding first come, first served.

"That of course means unless we're pleasantly surprised by a bigger launch day volume than expected then it's unlikely there will be free stock unless maybe people don't turn up. So it'll differ by retailer. But a second batch of stock will be within the week probably, so we're not talking about droughts for months and months."

All current pre-orders are guaranteed for pre-Christmas delivery and Sony expect stock to be in plentiful supply after the holiday period is over.

PlayStation 4 launches on November 29.
