PlayStation®4 stock availability: update for NZ consumers

PlayStation®4 stock availability: update for New Zealand consumers

AUCKLAND, 20 December 2013: Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand (SCE NZ) today confirmed it is expecting significant quantities of the new PlayStation®4 (PS4™) system to arrive in New Zealand early next year.

The new stock arriving in January, February and March will offer thousands more fans the opportunity to own a PlayStation 4 in early 2014. With the demand for this next gen console surpassing all expectations, SCE NZ is working with New Zealand retailers to limit fans’ wait time for their console. 

David Hine, Sales and Marketing Director at SCE NZ, said, “Since launch on November 29, our priority has always been to get additional stock into New Zealand as quickly as possible to fulfil the overwhelming demand.”

“The best way to guarantee your PS4 in early next year is by going to your preferred retailer, either in store or online, before Christmas to place your pre-order,” he adds.

PlayStation 4 has already broken records globally, with 2.1 million units sold in its first two weeks making it the biggest launch ever for a console game system. Experts are also predicting that PS4 will be the number one console game system of this new generation*.
