There Will Be a 'Limited' Supply of PS4 Stock at US GameStops This Weekend

Posted by Kell Andersen

Stop what you're doing

If you've not managed to nab a PlayStation 4 in North America yet, the prospect of getting one before Christmas is probably beginning to look pretty bleak. However, in what can only be described as a bonafide holiday miracle, major retailer GameStop has announced that it will have a "limited" supply of Sony's new machine in its North American stores this weekend. We don't know how many consoles the firm's expecting, so it's probably best to contact your local outlet or check the firm's website.

The seemingly insatiable demand for the machine also means that you'll want to get in nice and early. After all, it's currently the highest selling console in North America, and the Japanese giant has been struggling to satiate this voracious appetite.

This comes soon after the news that the equally monolithic retailer Walmart will also be replenishing its PS4 stock over the next few days. What we want to know is where these stores are pulling all of these mystery systems from? We're utterly convinced that Sony has commandeered a secret moon base from which to peddle them. That would certainly explain Naughty Dog's recent trips to aerospace company Space X. Whatever the case, we wish you the best of luck in finding a shiny black box this weekend.

Just as I said in my thread, PS4 is pretty much sold out. The demand is too high.

Sony are going to have to re-allocate their PS4 stock and concentrate on the U.S.

Makes sense since it's the biggest gaming country.

They do, but Japan is more a handheld gaming market than it is consoles.

Look at the PS3 lifetime sales in Japan. Only 9 million in 7 years. POOR.

In fact, the sales of the PS3 were so woeful in Japan that the 3DS managed to overtake it within 10 months of it's release in that region.

Compare that to PS2 lifetime sales in the region. Over 20 MILLION!!!

It's pretty apparent that Japan is not a major market for consoles. Having said that, China is opening it's doors to the gaming industry for the first time in over a decade. That could push PS4 hardware big time.

Only time will tell.

I was in Wal-Mart yesterday and saw two PS4 consoles and two Xbox One consoles, so I'm pretty sure people can find one if they look around.
