Sony: “PS4 ‘generally sold out at all retailers"

It is still early on since the releases of the X1 and PS4. Lots have been reported about the sales figures on the two consoles and it would seem Sony has a real winner on its hands. During an internal meeting, Sony stated its recent sales figures are overwhelmingly positive and the numbers of consoles being sold are still screaming.

The story is too old to be commented.

If the PS4 is selling out like it is now despite apparently having "NO GAMEZ!", then i can't imagine what's going to happen when the big hitters start releasing soon. It's going to be dryer than the Sahara out there.

Abash1285d ago

The PS4 is just a few months old, right now Sony is just letting it sell itself. They haven't even begun fighting in the "console war", but I have a feeling it'll be after the Japanese PS4 launch is out of the way. inFAMOUS: Second Son and MLB 14: The Show are really going to drive sales for the PS4 this Spring

amiga-man1285d ago (Edited 1285d ago )

Generally sold out so long after launch is a very impressive start for the PS4, who would have thought demand would still be outstripping supply at this stage.

Official numbers are going to be very interesting.

scott1821285d ago

should be even crazier when it is out in Japan.

MRMagoo1231285d ago

They will continue to be sold out for a long time i feel, my local EB games still has 200 ppl on the waiting list, thats just one store in my local area.

Anon19741285d ago

Yeah, I'm on a waiting list at my local PlayNTrade as well. I don't think it's 200 people long, but still no PS4 for me and no idea when they'll get more stock in.

One inFAMOUS to rule them all!

ThePope1285d ago

Since when is Infamous such a big game? 1 and 2 never got this kind of hype, or love from reviews or consumers who vote with their wallet.

I'm not saying it didn't sell ok, or get ok reviews, but man it's apparently the next GTA!

Palitera1285d ago (Edited 1285d ago )

8.8 average user review on Gamespot is not good enough? 3 millions sales (only on disc) for a game that became free on PS+ ain't it either?

Why the buzz? Because this is the first and only next-gen open world game releasing soon.

Watch Dogs is cross-gen (therefore 'limited by old-gen' + cute graphics) and if you say Dead Rising is next gen you'd better be kidding.

Later we will have The Witcher 3 and Shadows of Mordor, but neither is sandbox.

Damn, why I am stating facts here? Damn! You got me. Downvoted so we will have less of you in the future.

OrangePowerz1285d ago

I can't speak for other people but I was already hyped for the first two games and I'm now for Second Son.

WeAreLegion1285d ago

Let me use God of War III as an example. God of War I and II actually didn't do very well, as far as sales go. Then, III comes out with huge hype and a great reception from critics and gamers. It sold much better than the first two. inFamous deserves to be a massive seller. It is one of the best franchises of last generation.

ZodTheRipper1285d ago

Guys, I played through the InFamous 1 demo at least 20 times as I had no money to buy it ...beat that. I love this series, even got Platinum in IF1.

Not trolling here. But I've seen multiple at 2 Targets and 1 Best Buy. Have not looked everywhere, but where I live they are very available.

To those who will disagree unless you're my neighbor, how can you disagree? lol

@Lord

Go to Minnesota, and head to Maple Grove or Ridgedale Target & Best Buy

LordMaim1285d ago

Which ones, so I can make a killing on eBay?

ThunderSpark1285d ago (Edited 1285d ago )

@thePope:

Next time you go out and see this supposed shelf full of PS4s, write down "thePope" on a piece of paper, take a picture of that and all those PS4s, and post it here online. And no photoshopping either. Thanks.

Until then, you will forever be known as the N4G troll.

mydyingparadiselost1285d ago (Edited 1285d ago )

Same here, I went to Target to pick up SMB3DW and there were two PS4 systems. Also went to a GameStop and they were easily available there as well. This is in Oklahoma by the way.

Unreal011285d ago

"Not trolling here but."

Ah the motto of the Microbots.

pinkyxyz1285d ago

They were available here in jacksonville about 2 weeks ago. I picked one up at gamestop at that time and I saw 3 in target earlier this week. Its still pretty hard to find if you are only looking online, but there is a good chance that you can find some stragglers in some stores.

PS4isKing_821285d ago

Just checked the target stores in and around maple grove and they all list ps4 as "sold out".

Source "target app zip code search"

JustPlay41285d ago

Where I live there are no ps3 or ps4 to be found but there a lot of 360 and x1 at every store I go to, maybe my city is full of ps fans lol

HomerJDog1285d ago

I just went to gamestop and best buy and they both had plenty of stock and I live in Chicago don't know why they say they are sold out everywhere. must be for marketing purposes

FITgamer1285d ago

That's why it says "generally sold out" meaning not completely. Not a single Gamestop, Best Buy, or Wal-Mart here in the Phoenix area have PS4's available.

Mr-Dude1285d ago

They are all sold out here in Holland. Preorders are full till may. Every retailer even the big ones like Bol.com or mediamarkt, gamemania dont take preorders anymore. They first need to finish the old preorders. Same goes for pretty much the rest of the EU

Kryptix1285d ago

I live in Chicago myself (Back of the Yards) and I don't see any of the $400 priced PS4s anywhere. Maybe I'm not lucky enough to be there the day they're put on stock but from retailers, they told me they go out in less than an hour.

dude ps4 has more "gamez" than Xbox one and yet i still keep seing this "Teh no Gamez" comment on here.

Here is the list of all and announced games including multiplat,

Now tell me... What list is longer ?

mediate-this1285d ago

Talking bout launch games bucko.

ColeMacGrath1285d ago

Dark Sorcerer isn't a game though

jacksjus1285d ago

It really doesn't matter what software they release, because you can't sell more than you're capable of making. Sony's problem right now is hardware output. I'd say come July you will be able to just walk into any GameStop and pick up a PS4.

jessupj1285d ago

It's nice to see Sony saying the more accurate "generally sold out", instead of the ludicrous and blatant trickery of announcing "xbones sold out at retailers all over the world" like a certain other company did.

Will be interesting to see the NPD results in the coming months now that most of the core xbox fans most likely have their xbone by now.
