Sony expects to sell all 3 million of its consoles globally in two months.
With the PlayStation 4 launch upon us, Sony has confirmed there will be 3 million consoles available worldwide this year. The company expects to sell all of them by New Year’s Eve. And supplies at retailers worldwide aren’t expected to be able to keep up with demand of the next gen console.
"This is a marathon, not a sprint, but getting out to a nice start is a good thing," said Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony. "That hurdle has been cleared. We're very, very confident we're in great shape."
Sony will have more PS4s available for this launch than for the PS3 launch back in 2006.
"We're very comfortable with it," Tretton said regarding the estimate. "I'm excited about next week to be able to talk about what was sold as opposed to what we may sell."
