As the PlayStation 4 console was released locally today, selling through all launch stock, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia indicates that availability is going to be limited in the short-term:
Nearly seven years since the company’s previous console launch in Australia, Michael Ephraim, Managing Director at Sony Computer Entertainment Australia, said, "I've never seen demand like we are seeing now with PlayStation 4. Even though we are getting more PS4 consoles in before Christmas, our retail partners tell us that they don't expect many to be left on the shelves by the time Christmas comes. We will continue to supply the demand, starting in January and every subsequent month until we satisfy Australia's appetite for PS4. In the meantime, we thank our fans for their patience – we promise PS4 is worth the wait.”
Did you manage to pick one on pre-order last night or today? Are you considering trying to obtain one before the new year?
