Earlier this month research firm NPD announced Xbox One as the "Top Selling Home console" in US for the month of December 2013, for the first time beating Sony's Playstation 4. At that time SCE's Director of Corporate Communications Dan Race said that Playstation 4 were OUT OF STOCK at most retailers in December 2013 due to overwhelming consumer demand, but the console remains cumulative leader in U.S.
Now we are in 2014, and it seems like this PS4 Out of Stock situation hasn't changed and Playstation 4 "DEMAND IS STILL OUTSTRIPPING SUPPLY" across the globe, according to Head of Hardware Marketing at Sony PlayStation, John Koller.
In a recent interview to GotGame, John Koller was about the availability for Playstation 4, whether or the situation has changed since launch and Sony has able to caught up with the demand or not?.
"No, we still have demand far outstripping supply and I think we’re doing everything we can to bring in regular shipments of PlayStation 4s and are doing so", Koller replied.
"Many of your listeners and readers are probably aware that there’s a certain time each week when PlayStation 4s are available at their local retailers. We are certainly doing that on a weekly basis, but demand is still exceptional."
"Demand has been great for us but we need to make sure that everyone who wants a PlayStation 4 can get one. The fact that the PlayStation 4 is held in such high regard by such a cross section of gamers is fantastic. We’re going to be getting as many units as possible to market as possible as soon as we can."
Its really a great news for Sony that PS4 demand is still outstripping supply that too across the globe, whereas on the other side Microsoft are left with no other option but to offer clarification after clarification after it was discovered (earlier today) that 900,000 Xbox One units were unsold in December 2013.
