Sony discusses potential PlayStation 4 manufacturing shortage issues

While the Sony rep didn’t go into specific numbers, there will apparently be many more PlayStation 4s available at launch than there were PlayStation 3s.

Shortages could still be an issue though.

I really don't think there will be shortages and it seems like neither does Sony. This seems like a win for gamers.

cleft51432d ago

Definitely agree with you. Sony seems to be really aggressively pushing the PS4 and it is clear they have been planning this for a while now. I don't see shortages being too big of an issue, especially with them wanted to be the dominate next-gen platform.

"it was interesting to hear that Sony feels they probably won’t experience manufacturing shortages with the PlayStation 4."

AMD are the real winers her ... they r selling chips to both camps

theshonen88991431d ago

They made a chip for the Wii U too. So more win...kinda.

inveni01431d ago

I think I've bought more AMD CPUs on my own than they've sold via WiiU. :)

saber000051431d ago

Too bad they flunked their contract with Intel. They got some amazing processors coming out.

vigilante_man1432d ago

There will be shortages due to the very high demand.

A nice problem for Sony to have..

Jaqen_Hghar1432d ago

A man hopes so he has 8 ready to sell on Ebay and if there's one good thing about a later release date it's that people will get more desperate to get one for Christmas

vigilante_man1431d ago

Managed to get a wii for someone just before they ran out in the UK in November a few years back. If only I had got 2 of them. They doubled in price on ebay.

Same could happen here. These new consoles could pay for themselves if you have the cash to invest.

Of course, everything is perfect in the world of Sony. Everything Sony does is magic. Yes.

There will only be a shortage for a month or so if at all.

"Many people were selling the console for ridiculous prices ranging between $600 and $1000 on reselling websites like Kijiji and Craigslist."

LOL "Ridiculous prices" $600 was MSRP.

TheFutureIsBlue1431d ago

Xbone vs PS4...winner = AMD lol

The_Sneauxman1431d ago

yes that is very true, amongst what others may say

This sucks, but that's what they get for making a great console.

xxBiG_BoSSxx1432d ago

Well, the article states that they don't expect shortages, so I don't know what sucks about it.

Pre-ordered PS4 today, actually. Here's hoping there won't be shortages. Now, what will my first game be.... hmm....
Drive Club.

EDIT: Oh, wait.
I have PS Plus. Now what will my first fifteen games be...

logan_izer101432d ago

Drive club comes free... pick another one :)

360ICE1432d ago

Free version is different from box version!
But okay. Resogun, then!

Whitefire1432d ago

Resogun is free as well I believe.

360ICE1432d ago

Boy. Hmmm... Maybe Don't Starve or Outlast then. Or Planetside 2 if that's available at launch.

HeyImBen41432d ago

Don't starve is free to Ps+ members

And Planetside 2 is F2P too LOL

HeyImBen41432d ago

Don't starve is free to Ps+ members

And Planetside 2 is F2P at launch too LOL

WeAreLegion1432d ago

You tricky dog! ^_^

You should probably just throw some money down on War Thunder, so you can get that at launch.

DigitalRaptor1432d ago

Hahah. :)

You should definitely pick up Warframe or DCUO.

Darrius Cole1432d ago

It'll can still be his first game. Seeing as the PS4 comes with 14 days of free PS+, he gets Drive Club just as soon as buys his PS4.

Mr-Dude1432d ago

I recommend Outlast, very creepy game!Comes free in januari I believe with Plus.

Jaqen_Hghar1432d ago

KZ Shadowfall MP should have answered that question. A man was debating between BF4 and KZ:SF but that made up his mind

Skate-AK1432d ago

Lol. Outlast is free for + too.

FamilyGuy1432d ago

LOL nice, here's an idea: Spend that extra money on the dlc/microtransactions in the F2P games you end up liking and buy a year of PS+

Personally I don't think I'll buy any launch games (though KZ looks spectacular), I'm gonna get as much out of the PS+ and F2P games as I can so I can save up some money. Infamous SS is Day 1 for me though.

bjmartynhak1431d ago

I wish I had this self-control, lol

The cure to this is time. Just have to wait a while until there's more.
