PS4 Shortage To Last Until April


Sony reckons PS4 shortages will last until April as demand for the console still remains very high.

PlayStation UK and Ireland boss Fergal Gara said the following while speaking to MCV:

I can’t work it out precisely. But based on what I’ve seen so far, I think it is going to be tricky until around about
April. You might get a fortnight or a week here or there where it is more available, but we should be back to free supply by about April. That’s our best guess. It might be a little earlier than that, or it might be a little later. But we’ll get there

Right now, Sony is likely to allocate most PS4 shipments to compensate for Japan’s launch this month. If you’re still looking for a PS4, you might have to wait a little while longer until demand slows down enough for supply to be replenished.
