Sony has also confirmed that the PlayStation 4 was always scheduled to launch in November and rumors of an October release were made up. Sony also tried to squash the rumors that they are trying to create an artificial shortage of the PS4. The demand for the unit is high and they are doing their best to make sure that they have product on retailer shelves, but they have yet to confirm if retailers can expect more units to arrive before Christmas.
