PS4 Stock Exchanges Hurt US Sales

Sony has had relatively poor sales of its new PS4 Console in US due to bad stock exchanges. Sony's rival Microsoft is celebration their new console the Xbox One's position as the best selling console of December 2013. According to stats released by NPD, Microsoft sold around 908,000 Xbox One Consoles in the US alone throughout December, compared to Sony's 643,000 PS4 Sales. Microsoft quickly replied to the figures with the following statement: "We're grateful for the excitement and support of our fans – many purchasing their next Xbox console and many joining the Xbox family for the first time." - Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of marketing, strategy and business for Xbox. "Our journey is just starting, with more innovation, games and entertainment coming in 2014 and far beyond." Sony claims that the US-only figures were harmed by the poor stock of the company's console. "We sold every PS4 available at retail in the US and were out of stock in December due to overwhelming consumer demand," claimed Dan Race, Sony's senior director of corporate communications. "With more than 4.2 million PS4 systems sold worldwide, it's clear that the PS4's gaming and entertainment features are resonating with large audiences and we're doing our best to provide additional inventory in all of the 53 countries where it's available." This may be a clue as to NPD's figures: the PS4 was available in 53 Countries at launch, whereas Microsoft's Xbox One was released in only 13, As opposed to the originally planned 21. As a result of this, Microsoft has been able to push more stock into the selected markets than Sony, which has a much thinner production spread. Recent cumulative figures show that Sony's PS4 has sold more than 4.2 million PS4 consoles compared to Microsoft's 3 million Xbox One consoles.
