Sony: PS4 shortages resulting in some lost sales across Europe

'We havenít yet caught up with the initial demand across Europe'

"We haven't yet caught up with the initial demand across Europe," Fergal Gara, Managing Director of Sony Computer Entertainment UK told TrustedReviews. "We are still dealing with the day one market." 

I don't make it to stores that sell video game consoles much. In your collective anecdotal experiences, have you all seen slight PS4 stock? Maybe just a European thing? Basically, I'm wondering if I can still sell my PS4 for like $800. Time's running out. "We are very close to being in a full supply situation, but we are not quite there yet.," Gara said. 

"We are in a bit better shape in the UK, but there are countries that are still selling out every last unit that drops into the market on a weekly basis. A good example at the moment would be Germany who had phenomenal sales figures last week, but they just haven’t had enough stock so far."
