PlayStation 4 will be available to buy in February

If you didn't get a PlayStation 4 in the second batch, delivered this week, Sony has confirmed you will be able to purchase one in February.

Sony Computer Entertainment Australia expects "significant quantities" to be delivered to retailers in February.

"The new stock will not only fulfil all current pre-orders but will offer thousands more fans the opportunity to own a PlayStation 4 from February 2014 onwards," said a SCE Aust statement.

"Since launch on November 29 our priority has always been to get additional stock into Australia as quickly as possible to fulfil the overwhelming demand," said Michael Ephraim, Managing Director at SCE Aust. "The best way to guarantee your PS4 in February is by going to your preferred retailer, either in store or online, before Christmas to place your pre-order. With this announcement, it looks like Christmas will come again in February for players across Australia."

You should be able to walk into a store and buy a PS4 in February — but we still recommend pre-ordering.

    meh. my bro was talking to me a couple of weeks ago how he had pre-ordered when it was first announced but when he turned up to get it they told him to that he missed out. this was in EB in karratha. sold out lol.
    The worse thing is that they never even told him.

    He was probably pushed off the list by their friends etc because he definitely knows there wasn't any signs saying it was backed up. Due to this, he is expecting his console in Jan. poor form.

    asked me if I could find one for him since I live in Sydney but he's all out of luck as there's no chance I'll be finding one.

    I hope he doesn't have to wait that long (feb)

    update, my brother walked in the other day and said to the guy. Im here for the ps4. the guy looked at him and said okay and went out back and got him one. WTF?

    they said they would call him when stock is available and i think the kid at the counter thought they had called him.

    So that begs the question why they didn't call him if stock was available and why did they have one out back especially when pre-orders that weren't able to be fulfilled in Dec have to wait until Jan and those without a pre-order waiting until feb.

    Sounds dodgy EB.
    anyways, my brother now has a ps4 and he's happy unfortunately he hasn't connected online yet.
