Back in September, Sony had said they plan on selling a total of 5 million PlayStation 4 consoles by the end of its fiscal year, which is a number we could certainly see it doing, as long as the stars align just right. It seems the company has plans equally as big for this year as they are saying they’d like to sell a total of 3 million units of its PlayStation 4 worldwide by the end of this year.
Sony U.S. president and chief executive office Jack Tretton spoke today with Bloomberg saying the company has an “adequate” supply of PlayStation 4 consoles through Christmas and they certainly stand by earlier projections they made for sales of 5 million units by March 2014. “This is a marathon, not a sprint, but getting out to a nice start is a good thing to do,” Tretton said. “That hurdle has been cleared. We’re very, very confident we’re in great shape.”
The PlayStation 4 will hit store shelves in the U.S. on November 15, reaching Europe on November 29 and 32 additional regions in time for the holidays. A month and a half isn’t a lot of time, although considering the momentum Sony has been riding on since Microsoft unveiled its Xbox One earlier this year, we wouldn’t be surprised if they met their estimates.
