The PS4 is hard to find in stock several months after launch. Amazon is out of stock and while Walmart and other retailers are able to keep the Xbox One in stock the PS4 is usually missing from store shelves. This could be a hint that Sony is catching up to demand for the new console, in time for a flood of new games to start arriving this Spring.
The PS4 includes a 500GB hard drive, a new DualShock 4 controller and all the cords and connections for a standard installation. Users can plug any headphones into the controller to listen to all game and chat audio for a quiet, wireless gaming experience.
