You really are running out of time to pull the trigger on your PlayStation 4 pre-order in the UK. Yesterday, a CVG report claimed that Sony was set to introduce a deadline on next generation system sales, and online outlet Simply Games has reinforced that by sending out email reminders like the one embedded to the right.

The messages note that you have one more weekend to pre-order your machine. While the small print adds that your system is still not guaranteed should you meet the 5th August closing date, you stand more chance of getting a console by ordering now than doing nothing at all.

Have you requested your PS4 yet, or are you playing a game of Russian roulette with regards to availability? Let us know in the comments section below.
