Maybe in the USA because here in Spain there are lots of XOne and PS4 in every store


He is probably talking about Europe because I seen units where I live for a month now. Europe was really uh stocked but USA from friends/Facebook seems very much in stock.

PS4s have been preorder only items here in Australia. Since months before launch the initial shipment was sold out and every shipment since then sells out before they reach the shelves. I finally caved and preordered mine for a March shipment

Sony also said that it has increased its market share among what the company categorizes as “heavy gamers.”

Be curious how one quantifies heavy gamers. Number of titles owned, amount of time per week spent playing, etc.

Nothing that elaborate, just fat slobs.



Seems to be about right. It's "generally" sold out, as in for the most part, but not "completely". I'm pretty sure it's available at spotty areas around the country....like here. 3 PS4s have been in my Target for several days, 2 at Walmart, though there are a lot of One's that have been laying there. At least it's not as difficult to find PS4s as they were in December....not hard at all to find Boans though, they're EVERYWHERE! O_o



I have not seen any PS4 at all in Norway since the launch.
I guess Sony are still fulfilling the preorders.
I preordered mine before summer 2013 and got it on launch day.

Our Sony rep told us that they should be readily available by the end of January or early February...he has since said that it will probably be another couple of weeks.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

They take about a month to ship.

 

I've yet to see a PS4 in stores, but most places have them online.



Heck, I´ve only seen a couple of PS4 for sale on some stores and they were sold pretty fast. And I´ve only seen them for sale several weeks after the PS4 was released.
