PlayStation 4 consoles are expected to remain in limited supply across the UK until April, according to exec Fergal Gara.
Speaking with MCV, PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara said, “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.”
Reflecting on the high uptake of pre-orders across the UK, Gara added, “PS4 pre-orders were obviously a strong indicator of what was going to happen, but they were so big that we were pinching ourselves and wondering if people were pre-ordering in more than one place, and if some of these pre-orders were real. We were getting numbers we never imagined, let alone seen before. But it proved to be real. How do I reconcile that? I think the world has changed since we launched PS3.”
