There appears to be such a high demand for Sony’s next generation black box that they’re having to impose a pre-order limit in the UK so as to not disappoint fans eager to get the system on day one.
Speaking to CVG, retail sources have confirmed that orders should be placed “before next week” in order for them to be fulfilled on launch day, meaning an effective pre-order deadline of August 5th if you want your PS4 as soon as possible.
This deadline will be across the UK and perhaps even Europe, though there’s no word on whether they’ll be bringing a similar system in for the US or Japan.
If you’re not a fan of pre-ordering, then retailers have been promised extra units for general sale, meaning if you’re there nice and early (or at a midnight launch), you’ll have a good chance of getting a system.
I’ve just placed a provisional order with Amazon, though I’ll likely go to a midnight launch or elsewhere nearer release. How about you?
