PlayStation Australia has confirmed a shipment of PS4s due in February will fulfil all current pre-orders and supply a surplus of “thousands” more.
SCE Australia said it is expecting “significant quantities” of the new console early next year.
“The new stock will not only fulfil all current pre-orders but will offer thousands more fans the opportunity to own a PlayStation 4 from February 2014 onwards,” the company said.
“Since launch on November 29 our priority has always been to get additional stock into Australia as quickly as possible to fulfil the overwhelming demand. The best way to guarantee your PS4 in February is by going to your preferred retailer, either in store or online, before Christmas to place your pre-order. With this announcement, it looks like Christmas will come again in February for players across Australia,” SCE Australia boss Michael Ephraim said.
