In the months since its release last year, Sony has sold an astonishing 5.3 million PS4’s. The record setting pace at which PS4’s are being sold is so high that it eclipsed Sony’s internal projections and might make it difficult to find one in the upcoming months. PlayStation UK executive Fergal Gara said that April it will likely be easier to find a PS4 in stores around April. “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,” said Gara.
PS4 has been selling nearly double the amount of Xbox One units since January and is close to passing the Wii U’s global sales total. None of these figures include the sales of PS4 in its home country of Japan where the console was just released today and is predicted to do very well.
