According to Gaf it took PS3 22 months to reach 1million in Germany. PS4 is such a beast!

That is not ture. The PS4 had only noticeable supply issues until the end of March.
The Ps4 was never that hard to find since April. The April - June supply issues reports are form other (small) European countries like Finnland and Denmark.


maybe mid/end april you could get one on amazon for 399€.
but in stores I had troubles to even see one until end of may where I live.

Can be true. I just know the Ps4 was restocked at Amazon and other online store on early April and never really sold out again.
Ofc i don't know the stock situation for every retail store. But it was nowhere near the same like January - March



Did ioi really come out to say it was shipped when the article states it's sold through? REALLY?



If this is a sold through number then holy cripes PS4 is killing it in Europe

You know that if he knew it meant sold through he would say that if the PR is to be believed.

Wasn't the PS4 supply constrained to an almost ridiculous degree in Germany for several months? IIRC there were reports of launch preorders not being fulfilled until February or March. It would make sense for sales to pick up significantly once stock started to become more readily available.
