PS4 Pre-Order Allocations Reportedly Running Low At GAME

Despite certain US retailers reporting to be able to fulfill “unlimited” pre-orders for Sony’s next generation PlayStation, it appears the console may not be quite so readily available to gamers in the UK, come launch day.

One GAME staff member, who naturally is “not at liberty to discuss figures” has today tweeted the following:

Spoke to #TeamPlaystation today and was told if we continue at this rate PS4 will reach UK allocation within 1 month

Whilst stock shortages are rumoured at every product launch, this information, quoted as being from a “reliable source” within PlayStation – if indeed not just marketing hyperbole – indicates a rather worrying Christmas period for PS4, and, with Xbox One expected to launch at the same time, perhaps more importantly potential market share and early install base.

During the recent Electronic Entertainment Expo, online retailer Amazon received their busiest pre-order week to date, reportedly receiving 2,500 console orders per minute.

So, if you’re after a PS4 this side of Christmas, I suggest you get that deposit down at a GAME store sooner rather than later.
