Sony’s head of the PlayStation division, Andrew House, told WSJ that the company won’t be able to keep steady supplies of the PlayStation 4 until early summer at the soonest.

Retailers are also having a hard time keeping supplies of the PlayStation Camera. The PlayStation 4’s camera surpassed sales expectations largely due to the popularity of Twitch. Twitch is a broadcast service that allows players to live stream video of them playing games online. Sony didn’t take into account for Twitch when releasing camera, GameZone notes.
