PlayStation 4 arrived in Australia overnight and drew such demand that SCE Australia seems to be anticipating difficulty keeping stock available through the holidays.
“I’ve never seen demand like we are seeing now with PlayStation 4,” SCE Australia managing director Michael Ephraim said in a statement.
“Even though we are getting more PS4 consoles in before Christmas, our retail partners tell us that they don’t expect many to be left on the shelves by the time Christmas comes.
“We will continue to supply the demand, starting in January and every subsequent month until we satisfy Australia’s appetite for PS4. In the meantime, we thank our fans for their patience – we promise PS4 is worth the wait.”
PS4 goes for $549.95 in Australia. It arrives in west Europe in just over an hour from time of writing, and hits the UK shortly thereafter.
