PS4 to remain supply-constrained into summer

|By:, SA News Editor

"We’re struggling to keep up with demand ... as we get into the early summer months, we’ll be closer to a full supply situation," says PlayStation (SNE) division chief Andrew House.

PS4 sales topped 6M in early March, putting them well ahead of Sony's original target of 5M sales by the end of March. All signs suggest the console is handily outselling the Xbox One, aided by a $100 price difference, a stronger gaming focus, and (for now) broader availability.

PS4 CPU/GPU supplier AMD, estimated by IHS to receive $110 per console shipment, would doubtlessly like to see supply constraints come to an end. At the same time, it can't be complaining about demand.
