Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House announced that the supplies of the PlayStation 4 would be limited throughout the remainder of 2013, according to a report today from GameSpot.

In an interview with The Guardian, House said that though Sony had anticipated and manufacturing enough PS4 units for the next-gen console’s launch in mid-November and the weeks following, but keeping up with demand for the system has been an issue.

"So I’d characterize it as being somewhat supply-challenged for the remainder of the calendar year, but hopefully we’ll be able to satisfy that pent-up demand as we get out to January and February," House said.

Despite the PS4 supply shortage, House said that Sony fully expects to sell not only 3 million PS4 units by the end of the year but also and additional 2 million by the end of March.

The comments come after House said this week that he was heartbroken over the idea that fans of the PS4 couldn’t get their hands on a machine. You can read that full Examiner report by clicking here.

House even offered up his own personal PS4 so that Sony could sell just one more unit. You can read about that Examiner report by clicking here.
