PlayStation Honcho Boasts PS4 and PS Vita’s Success in Japan, Apologizes for Shortages

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia President Hiroshi Kawano sent a message to the fans today, thanking them for the support that helped the PS4 reach the goal of seven million consoles sold.

Kawano-san mentioned that in addition to the PS4, the PS Vita is also proving very popular, so much that the supply chain could not keep up, causing some stores to go out of stock. He apologized for the inconvenience, and promised that measures have been taken in order to meet demand.

Finally, Kawano-san promised to continue offering a “new gaming experience,” including the Killzone: Shadow FallĀ online tournament announced yesterday, mentioning that Sony is planning a variety of those.

Incidentally, the PS4 is indeed sold out at the local branch of Amazon, and deliveries will resume on the 27th, but Kawano-san is probably talking about a past situation, as an online search shows that current availability for both consoles is pretty good at least at major retailers.
