"This is very encouraging," Kato said on the call. "And we are doing our best to secure enough chipsets and capacity to" meet demand at launch.

He added that the system's showing at E3 this year was very positive for Sony.

Kato did not give any details regarding the specific polls he referenced during the call. A Sony representative could not be reached for comment.

The PS4 launches worldwide this holiday for $399/€399/£349, a full $100 below Microsoft's Xbox One.

Sony is no longer guaranteeing that PS4 orders in the United Kingdom will be available on launch day.
