My Gamestop has been receiving XO's from other stores to sell due to us being a much busier store...I imagine there sales will pick up quite a bit coming Feb. with tax returns. Specially if the PS4 stays short on stock. Also considering the PS4 will launch in Japan on Feb I can't imagine there being enough to meet demand then either and people may get tired of waiting for them to be in stock.
Sony is producing about 250k units of PS4 per week... so that's what they have to sent to EU and US but they need to make some inventory to Japan launch (500k?).
So my guesses are that they are shipping something like 150k per week to US and 100k per week to EU until the last week of January because the production of the last week of January and the first week of February will be sent to Japan only (these 500k I guessed before).
In easy terms I guess US and EU will have two weeks without supply from Sony in February... after these two weeks they will receive again 150k in US and 100k in EU with Japan receving now.
Two weeks after Japan launch the situation will be like:
US: 100k per week
EU: 100k per week
JP: 50k per week
Of couser that can change if one of the regions have less demand but I think that won't happen before end of March.
Question... is Gamestop receiving PS4 units to sell (at least for the preorders)? I know Target and Amazon are receiving some batchs but I don't know how the Sony contract with Retail works (maybe they priorise some retais).
Thanks for the info BTW
PS. I expect Sony to ship ~7m units until end of March WW.
