Fergal Gara has made a brief statement in regards to the current stock and supply levels of the PS4. In an interview with Express on Dec. 26, the managing director at the U.K. branch of Playstation shared some potential bad news for customers looking to purchase the next-generation system in the future.

Fergal Gara admitted that Sony Computer Entertainment still needs “a couple of months” in order to supply enough units to satisfy demand. It is unclear if his statement was meant specifically for the U.K. region or worldwide.

The PS4 was made available on Nov. 15 in North American while European regions did not receive the new console until Nov. 22. The next-generation system has been hard to find due to high demand, especially during the holiday season.

An analyst recently disclosed that Sony Computer Entertainment is manufacturing approximately one million units per month. The company previously announced that more than 2.1 million PS4 consoles were sold to customers by Dec. 1. That number should increase significantly with the holiday season sales and additional launches in other countries.

It appears that much of the restocks and shipments are being prioritized for the United States. Many retailers from other countries are telling customers that they will have to wait until early next year in order to get their hands on the next-generation system.
