Pachter: Sony Shipping One Million Units Per Month, Half Going to GameStop

Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter estimates that Sony, who has promised "substantial resupplies" of the PlayStation 4 consoles in North America before the end of 2013, is making one million units per month. Pachter says that Sony is shipping about one million units to North America per month, with about half of those units going to retailer GameStop.

"We expect Sony to continue to ship 1 million consoles per month, so as of the end of January, we believe Sony will have manufactured a cumulative 5 million consoles and will have shipped 4.25 – 4.5 million," Pachter said. "We expect the 55 percent allocation to North America to continue through January, and then revert to a more normalized 40 percent of units once Sony launches in Japan and other countries. We think that Microsoft is on a similar production schedule, with similar allocations to North America."

Pachter believes that GameStop will continue to get that amount of consoles at least until the end of December.

The company announced this morning that it has sold over 2.1 million units since the system launched in North America on Nov. 15. The system launched in other regions last week and is currently available in 32 markets.

    Then tbh where are they going? My area seems never to see the PS4 AT ALL, well.. we did only on release day and Black friday, any other time and its "we don't know when we'll get more in" and "we haven't had it since xx day" when you ask about the dozens (why are there so damned many?) of gamestops out here…

    Half bet only "major" cities are getting them while the rest of the world suffers…

    Xbones on the other hand.. a few every few days here and there aside from store stock piling them (as Wal mart in the area was doing)
