Sony is apparently feeling more and more confident that its PlayStation 4 console will be an instant hit come launch this holiday. SCEA boss Jack Tretton has become the second exec to state that demand for the new platform will exceed supply this Christmas.
"I certainly think, given the technology that we're offering, given the software lineup, given the price point we have, that we'll have consumers interested in excess of what we're able to manufacture," Tretton told Forbes
Last week, Tretton said that the reported enthusiasm for the PS4 was matched by GameStop executives, who outright suggested that it would purchase "every single unit" that Sony would be able to manufacture. His comments with Forbes follows a quote from Sony Computer Entertainment group CEO Andrew House
that "demand may well outstrip supply."
Sony unveiled the PS4 last week at its pre-E3 press conference, and announced that it will not be moving on current-generation policies on online connectivity and used game policies, to thunderous applause.
