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.
