PS4 second wave of machines to arrive within a week of launch
Sony has again moved to reassure fans that they will be doing their best to avoid any hardware shortages of the PS4 at launch.
The boss of Sony UK Fergal Gara explained that they are working with retailers to ensure that they have enough hardware to meet pre-orders although it will be unlikely that there will be any PS4s available to buy off the shelf.
Gara began, "Some people have decided, right, turn off the pre-orders completely because I want to have a bit of free stock on day one. Others are saying the fairest thing to do is keep the list going, and the first on the list gets the first console. Basically they're behaving in a linear fashion rewarding first come, first served.”
He added, "That of course means unless we're pleasantly surprised by a bigger launch day volume than expected then it's unlikely there will be free stock unless maybe people don't turn up. So it'll differ by retailer. But a second batch of stock will be within the week probably, so we're not talking about droughts for months and months."
The PS4 will arrive in the North America on November the 15th and in Europe and the UK on November the 29th.
