Sony says it plans to land "significant" quantities of PlayStation 4 consoles in New Zealand early next year. The system, which went on sale in November, was pre-sold out and has yet to be readily available in this country.
“Since launch on November 29 our priority has always been to get additional stock into New Zealand as quickly as possible to fulfil the overwhelming demand,” David Hine, Sales and Marketing Director at SCE NZ, said.
The new stock was set to arrive in January, February and March, and would result in "thousands" of additional machines entering the market. Sony anticipated demand remaining high, however “the best way to guarantee your PS4 in early next year is by going to your preferred retailer, either in store or online, before Christmas to place your pre-order," Hine said.
The PlayStation 4 has broken retail records worldwide, with 2.1 million units sold during its first two weeks on sale - making it the biggest console launch in history.
