Despite launching eight months ago the PlayStation 4 is still selling out across Europe and Sony is struggling to meet demand.
“We haven’t yet caught up with the initial demand across Europe.” explained Fergal Gara, Managing Director of Sony Computer Entertainment UK. “We are still dealing with the day one market.”
Sony say there are “close” to clearing the backlog but admit that they may have lost some sales due to the lack of stock.
“We are in a bit better shape in the UK, but there are countries that are still selling out every last unit that drops into the market on a weekly basis,” said Fergal. “A good example at the moment would be Germany who had phenomenal sales figures last week, but they just haven’t had enough stock so far.”
NeoGAF posters in Germany and the Netherlands have confirmed that there have been stock shortages, although the situation is improving.
