PS4 production starts August, 16 million shipments targeted this year

Sony will be targeting 16 million shipments of PS4 in 2013, according to a new Digitimes report.

They say that mass production will begin in August and this has been confirmed via specific component makers.

The console will be manufactured by Foxconn Electronics and Pegatron Technology, and Sony has placed request for related components. They will be able to release the console in holiday 2013.

The EU region is rumoured to get the console in 2014, however, but it’s not clear whether Sony can manage a worldwide launch at this stage.

PS4 was announced in February and Jack Tretton has said 9 months to go before the console comes out, so it looks like a November 2013 launch for the system.

    16 million in 2013? That is ridiculous.
