Gamestop Runs Out Of Unlimited PS4 Pre-Orders

Written by arthurjeron on Tue, Jul 9, 2013 2:22 PM

After we heard that the Xbox One was sold out, Sony made a big deal about granting Gamestop unlimited pre-orders of the Playstation 4.

Unlimited isn't what it used to be though, and Gamestop has now stopped all PS4 pre-orders, relegating people to waiting lists...

Some of the more expensive bundle packs are still available, but the base console can't be pre-ordered, even from their main website. On the one hand, it shows the incredible demand; on the other this looks like a repeat performance of the massive lack of PS3's at the console's release.

If you're desperate of course, the Xbox One is still available at Gamestop, or with the lack of region locking you can try and import one. The message is clear though; even before it's release, the Playstation 4 is becoming a rare species, so make sure to get one now if you want one!

Have any of you guys pre-ordered yet? Or are you hoping the price will come down first? Tell us what you think below.

I didn't know you can run out of something that is unlimited :D
So, both consoles' presales are high, interesting.

Higher than expected. On Amazon the PS4 has higher pre-orders than the Xbox One in the UK, not sure about the US as the PS4 has different bundles available for pre-order.

Really? If you're desperate then order an Xbox One? Or simply order a PS4 from Amazon or somewhere else.
I ordered a PS4 a few weeks ago from Amazon, eagerly awaiting release now.

Why did you pre order it? It's not like your PC won't run next-gen games...

Mainly so my little brother can use it but I'll play exclusives on there though like Gran Turismo 6.
