PlayStation 4 Shortage Will Continue Into Summer


Bad news if you’re one of the many gamers still looking to get your hands on a PlayStation 4. According to the company itself, the shortage of PS4 consoles is expected to last into the summer months.

In a interview with The Wall Street Journal, Sony Computer Entertainment president and CEO Andrew House stated that, “We’re struggling to keep up with demand. Conservatively, as we get into the early summer months, we’ll be closer to a full supply situation.”

With over 6.3 million consoles sold since its November 15 launch, it’s no surprise that the PS4 is a tough find in the United States and Europe. However, there will be times when consoles become available at certain retailers, you just have to keep your eyes open at all times.
