Amazon sells out of PS4 launch stock thanks to huge pre-orders for Sony’s next-gen console

It turns out a whole bunch of you really want PS4. So much so, Amazon has already sold out of its day one stock due to a huge number of PS4 pre-orders. Guess that’s another drenched, miserable midnight launch for us, then.

PS4 pre-orders

Somewhat surprisingly, considering the steep price point, the online retailer has already sold all of its initial allocation of Xbox Ones through pre-orders, too. “After a crazy and exciting month, we’ve sold through our initial allocations of PS4 and Xbox One,” the retailer confirmed on its Facebook page.

This follows events earlier in the week where GameStop confirmed it had stopped taking PS4 pre-orders.

Here’s hoping Sony allocates some more stock for the UK before Christmas.
