GameStop No Longer Taking US Pre-Orders For The PS4

Share And Comment

The PlayStation 4 has been doing pretty well in the pre-order department especially after an extremely good showing at E3 this year and it would seem that GameStop is no longer taking US pre-orders for the console after appearing to sell-out of its allocation of launch units. The PlayStation 4 is still present on GameStop’s website but it is now displayed as being sold out and no more pre-orders can be made but you can sign-up to be notified of when you can buy one again.

If you want one then you will have to go to somewhere other than GameStop

Speaking to GameInformer, a spokesperson for GameStop confirmed that the retailer has indeed stopped taking pre-orders for the PlayStation 4:

“Due to high demand for the system, GameStop is not currently taking additional store reservations for the PlayStation 4.”

This is interesting after a rumor had surfaced a few weeks ago that Sony had told GameStop that they can take as many pre-orders as they possibly could but Sony did also say that we should expect demand to outstrip supply. Despite the conflicting messages about unlimited pre-orders and then the ceasing of new pre-orders, Sony is looking like the PS4 is going to have a more successful launch than the PS3.

Have you pre-ordered a PS4? If you haven’t, will you get one from somewhere else or wait a while? Please let us know in the comments below.

I'm a big gaming fan who has been playing games since ever since Pokemon Yellow was released in the year 2000. I'm just glad that there are decent rugby games on the PS3 now after years of nothing. I need another Uncharted game...NOW!!!!!
