I have yet to see a ps4 box in store...

Poland

Same. (in Israel, Estonia, and Finland).

Given that Sony needs to supply a large plethora of markets right now, with Japan coming up, means this will carry on for a while longer. Anticipation builds up pleasure (aka the later buyers will have a nicer library of games to go with )


You can add Brazil, Colombia, Argentina and Australia.

I'm starting to think Sony just add up the pre-orders and unfullfiled delivered at smallers countries to reach the 4,2mi mark.

Hah.

Would make for a nice few weeks of sales had that been the case, though of course it's a bit insane. Holland and not being to even order until next month is hilarious though, I must say.

Really curious to see January NPD if these sellouts & huge demand still continue.

I'm so surprised there's still so much demand, the Wii was at least attracting a whole new market which can explain the unprecedented demand.

Same here.  The Wii was a device unlike anything the market had seen before, it was at a mass market price and, most importantly, it had a game that people were buying it for. 

The PS4 is mostly just a power evolution, is priced higher than that target $250-$299 range and has no games - current or announced - that are moving the console en masse.  The fact that it's selling out the way it is shows that Sony made the right moves for the gamers anxious for next gen.  If this kind of demand lasts throughout the year I will be truly impressed.




That's cool... in mid December I posted a picture from a friend lining in a Best Buy in New York... he bought two PS4s but the line was really big that he even thought he won't get one... thankful he could get these two (he wanted 3 to sell one here and make money).

One month late and the lines didn't stopped... crazy.



Impressive....People that think PS4 won't sell too much this upcoming months forget the fact there's still a lot of people that wanted to buy a ps4 since launch, and by lot, i mean probably millions in USA, so is more than probably PS4 will sell around 500-600k in January in USA alone.

And probably will keep an average of 500k per month in USA until June....

Edit: Wii sold an average of 360k through January-June 2007 in USA.

That number is too high. Also Sony didn't start manufacturing Sept 1. (There were actually pictures floating around of XBox Ones with August dates on the label, so the same goes for Microsoft). My guess is both companies rounded up their numbers and flew in December stock. Actual shipping numbers are due in a few days so we might know somewhat more from these numbers, and January numbers might show the lack of stock for January on ships.



From what I know Sony have two factories working in PS4 manufacture... that's give them 1.5m consoles manufactured per month.

But I don't think TSMC can produce 1.5m PS4's APUs per month... they have to produce to nVidia, AMD, Microsoft and others. So I believe TSMC is supplying Sony with ~1.2m chips max per month... 1m is not out of question too.

What can happen in the next months is TSMC decreasing the production of Xbone's APUs due MS started to ask less because the slow demand of the console... so this space can be fit with more PS4's APUs for Sony if they want.

But I don't know how the contract between TSMC and Sony works... or even the TSMC and MS.

Were lines in your Target? 


No, but we didn't know we were going to get them when we did. We do have people still calling looking for some.



Its funny how stupid gamers are when they line up for a console without games.
