Amazon Has Sold Out Of Launch Day PS4s & Xbox Ones

Amazon has just updated its video game Facebook page to announce that all initial Playstation 4 and Xbox One stock has completely sold out. This means that if you haven’t already put in a pre order for one of the next gen consoles at Amazon, and they’re your preferred retailer, then chances of receiving one at launch day will be slim.

Amazon do not know if they will receive any more release day stock allocations from either Sony or Microsoft, but are encouraging people to keep an eye on the website for any announcements. You can still pre-order from Amazon though if you’re not too fussed about getting either console day one.

This news follows Gamestop announcing they are sold out of their initial PS4 stock too, though Xbox Ones are still available there. If you do want a launch day console I advise pre ordering soon before other retailers announce they’re out of stock too.

  1. I’m still waiting for a few more bundles to be announced before I place my pre-order, assuming I’ll get one on launch. Still not sure if I should wait 6 months and then get one when it could be cheaper and there should be more games out.

  2. I’m still waiting on bundle deals before I purchase. But Amazon was going to be my retailer of choice because I have vouchers to use!!!

  3. I pre ordered on 29th of may before they even showed the ps4. Amazon had it at £600, obviously just to cover themselves.

  4. I put a deposit down at Gamestop a week ago but i was going to wait a bit longer – i’m glad i didn’t now. Looks like PS4 is all set to shake off the ghosts of the PS3 launch.

  5. I pre-ordered mine from ShopTo about 3 months ago. The fact that the PS4 is likely gonna be sold out (or close to it) is good news for Sony.
    Incidentally my cousin went to his local GAME to pre-order his PS4 last weekend and was told that they had stopped taking PS4 pre-orders. I’m not sure about the nextbox though as he never asked..

  6. I’ll be going into Game to pre-order mine. Not going to risk not getting it through the post and turning up damaged.

  7. Well I just pre-ordered via Amazon Uk and it said it will be dispatched for release day.

  8. I have preorders at amazon and shopto.
