Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House has warned that shortages of the PlayStation 4 could occur following an increase in the console’s internal sales forecast as a result of the positive response during E3.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, House warned that “demand may well outstrip supply.” GameStop later echoed this sentiment to WSJ. So you had better pre-order yourself a PlayStation 4 now if you want to guarantee you will get one.
This is no real surprise after the beating that Sony delivered to Microsoft during E3. Following Sony’s E3 press conference thousands of fans decided that the PlayStation 4 was the way to go, so an increase in demand is expected.
