Finally, the PlayStation 4 console drought is over! Temporarily, at least –¬†we’ve heard from Ster Kinekor that the latest shipment of PS4s will be hitting South African retail outlets from tomorrow, February 7. Whether this batch will also sell out in a matter of hours as the initial shipment did remains to be seen, but with such strong demand it wouldn’t surprise us.

“We are overwhelmed with how incredible the PlayStation 4 has done since its launch in 2013 and have shown a record Q4 2013 and the first part of Q1 this year in our hardware sales figures” said Mario dos Santos, Chief Executive Officer of Ster Kinekor Entertainment.

So if you’re not an FNB customer, or you are but you don’t want to wait until FNB secures its own consignment of PS4s, you’ll at least be able to get your hands on Sony’s latest and greatest from your favourite gaming retailer from tomorrow, February 7.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
