Earlier today, we did talk about how well the Sony PS4 is doing at the moment worldwide, where the consumer electronics giant has reported that the total sales figure for the Sony PS4 has passed the 7 million mark – and still counting, of course. After all, who are we to argue with a console that actually sold a million units in a matter of 24 hours? Having said that, this is a silver lining in the dark cloud that Sony is in, as the company continues to see its bottom line hit by the decline in TV and camera demands. While sales of the Sony PS4 has been robust to cross the 7 million mark, it does seem as though the company is having trouble meeting the continued strong demand for the next generation video game console.
According to Andrew House, president and group chief executive officer of Sony Computer Entertainment, “Although we are still facing difficulties keeping up with the strong demand worldwide, we remain steadfast in our commitment to meet the needs of our customers.”
We do hope that Sony will be able to meet the strong demand worldwide with its existing production lines, otherwise they might end up losing potential sales to their immediate rival, the Xbox Onedone quite well for itself by the way, helped along by triple A titles such as Titanfall), because some gamers are less patient than others.
