Jack Tretton, the leader of Sony Computer Entertainment of America, says that his company is holding back in its own warehouses a number of PlayStation 4 home consoles to make sure that no shortages occur on launch date.

The executive is quoted by VG247 as saying that one of his priorities is to allow interested players to enter a store and buy a console on November 15 in North America and two weeks later in Europe.

He states, “We can pre-sell every unit we can manufacture, and the good news is that production yields have been phenomenal. We’re going to work very hard to make sure that every consumer that wants one gets one.”

Recently, stores said that pre-orders made after the start of August were no longer guaranteed to get a PlayStation 4 at launch.

The rival Xbox One will be delivered on November 22 in 13 major markets.
