Sony: “PS4 ‘generally sold out at all retailers”


It is still early on since the releases of the X1 and PS4. Lots have been reported about the sales figures on the two consoles and it would seem Sony has a real winner on its hands. During an internal meeting, Sony stated its recent sales figures are overwhelmingly positive and the numbers of consoles being sold are still screaming.

“PS4’s are generally sold out at all retailers although regular supply is refreshing the channel,” Sony said on a slide shown during an internal presentation. Sony also mentioned,they have increased its market share among as what they describe as “heavy gamers.”

“[The PlayStation 4 launch] hasn’t been like prior ones… this is a story of engagement,” vice president of PlayStation marketing John Koller reportedly said. He continued, “When demand outstrips supply, the promise of what’s to come is really critical.”

During the PS4’s six weeks of availability in 2013 alone, Sony announced that it sold more than 4.2 million consoles during that time.
