Just yesterday, GameStop announced that it had completely sold out of its initial allotment of PS4 units. Now another retailer has announced the same.
Amazon announced today via its Video Games Facebook page that it has completely sold out of its initial allotment of PS4 and Xbox One launch units. As the retailer notes, it only took them a month to sell through the launch unit preorders:
After a crazy and exciting month, we’ve sold through our initial allocations of PS4 and Xbox One. Thank you to all who have ordered and shared your opinions. We have the Standard Editions for both consoles still available, but we can’t guarantee these at release. Please check back here as we’ll update you first if we receive further release day allocations.
What Amazon didn't say is that it has sold out of its more expensive launch day bundles as well. The sell through rate of these bundle only further cements that the hype for next-gen consoles is very high, and will remain so throughout the end of the year.
Amazon may be sold out of both the PS4 and the Xbox One, but GameStop still has the Xbox One Day One Edition available for preorder. There's no guarantee that it will be available for much longer, however, so you better preorder now if you have your heart set on an Xbox One this holiday season.
