The PS4 is launching on Nov. 15 and Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Jack Tretton said in a Wednesday interview with Fox Business that pre-orders for the next-gen console are everything that the company can manufacture. However, Sony will still have enough consoles to meet demand through the holiday according to him.
"We want to make sure people can buy a PS4 on November 15 and through the holidays, so we're holding back some inventory to make sure people will be able to buy one," Tretton said.
"We can pre-sell every unit we can manufacture, and the good news is that production yields have been phenomenal. We're going to work very hard to make sure that every consumer that wants one gets one."
Pre-orders for the PS4 are currently running north of one million according to Sony and Tretton says that the number is constantly increasing. The Launch Edition and Standard Edition versions of the console are currently sold out at most retailers but some like Walmart are still accepting pre-orders in-store.
The console launches on Nov. 15 in North America, Nov. 29 in Europe and Feb. 22 in Japan.
