Fight for the right to 4K
If you’re in the market for a spangly new PlayStation 4 Pro and you live in the UK, then good luck finding one. Stock has been on the short side for some time now, and while major retailers like Tesco and Currys have recently received new shipments, the system is only available through third-parties at
A growing concern
Here's a thing: the PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation VR are severely supply constrained. While the former is readily available in parts of North America, it's almost entirely sold out across Europe and Asia. And as for the platform holder's futuristic facemask, you've barely been able to buy one of those anywhere since it launched...
Regular readers may recall our obsession with PlayStation 4 stock last Christmas. Sony’s next-gen system was a smash hit at launch, and we were busy scouting out UK and US stores in order to provide you with as much information as possible on fresh supply. Things have, understandably, eased out over the past twelve months – but SCE...
Console's still selling very well, though
No one could accuse the PlayStation 4 of getting off to a slow start. At last count, Sony had sold seven million next-gen super machines, and that number is almost certain to be nearer to the 10 million unit milestone at the time of typing. However, while the company is incredibly satisfied with the...
While you can find a PlayStation 4 if you look here in the UK, the console is far from being readily available. The system has been sold out at most major online retailers since the start of March, and that’s been reflected in the software sales, which have taken a tumble over the past few weeks. In fact, it seems like the lack of...
What a sell out
Sony’s next-gen super machine will remain supply constrained until the summer, group president Andrew House has told the Wall Street Journal. Previously, the platform holder indicated that the PlayStation 4 would become readily available in April, but the aforesaid executive stressed that the organisation is still struggling to...
Platform holder never predicted demand
While it’s definitely getting slightly easier to find a PlayStation 4 in the UK, the system still isn’t as readily available as it probably should be. Previously, the platform holder suggested that the situation could remain this way until March, but now
Platform holder is not satisfied
Sony’s not especially impressed with the PlayStation 4’s current sales tally. While its next generation system has ripped up the record books and attained the fastest selling format crown, the manufacturer knows that the numbers could be higher if it had more stock
Bundles back on digital store shelves
It may have been the worst reviewed PlayStation 4 exclusive at launch, but Knack has actually been something of a success – perhaps partly due to it being sold alongside the sought after next generation system since launch. And in an effort to keep the divisive debut above the critically acclaimed Super Mario...
Consoles creeping into GameStop and Target, too
Stock shortages prompted the PlayStation 4 to fall behind the Xbox One in last month’s NPD report, so Sony is going to need to up its supply if it intends to maintain its slender next generation lead in North America. Fortunately, there are signs that the sought after system is starting to filter...
Despite some meaty shipments all over the globe, it’s amazing that the PlayStation 4 remains a real challenge to track down. Granted, it may be a bit easier to skewer a system this side of Christmas, but any available stock is still getting snapped up within hours of it becoming available. If you’re stil
Snag a system soon
A fresh wave of PlayStation 4 stock was enough to push first-person shooter Killzone: Shadow Fall back up the UK sales charts this week, but it looks like the supply has been exhausted already. A quick glance around the web reveals that the hardware is once again hard to find, with
Cracking the whip
We’re not sure that the PlayStation 4 could have sold better if it shipped with an image of Jessica Rabbit in the buff, as Sony has smashed record after record with its next generation machine. Despite that, the system still remains harder to find than a four-leafed clo
Limited availability, though
Sony pleaded for patience with consumers struggling to find a PlayStation 4 late last week, and it looks like it’s finally getting around to replenishing British store shelves as we write. A slew of Tweets spotted by Official PlayStation Magazine show makeshift sandwich boards promoting the stock, which appears to be...
Sony’s sought after next generation hardware may be playing hide and seek with retail store shelves, but ShopTo.net has managed to source a brand new batch of PlayStation 4 consoles overnight. The online retailer’s selling all of its units in bundles, so you’ll have to hold out a little longer if you’re looking for a vanilla...
As has been a recurring topic on this very website, the PlayStation 4 is hard to find. Sony’s next generation console has been selling like wildfire since its release late last year, and the manufacturer is still yet to properly replenish store shelves. In fact,
January sales look set to start strong
While it’s common for New Year’s resolutions to centre on trivial tasks such as weight loss and self improvement, we suspect that there are a few of you with something different in mind for 2014. It can’t have been easy to stomach Christmas without Killzone: Shadow Fall, and so we guarantee that there are...
System to remain in short supply
It sounds like the PlayStation 4 is going to remain troublesome to track down way into the New Year, as Sony Computer Entertainment UK boss Fergal Gara has hinted that it will take a “couple of months” for supply levels to meet the ravenous demand that has surrounded the device since its launch late last month...
Beginning the New Year with a bang
If you’ve muddled through Christmas without a PlayStation 4 in your life, then know that there’s new stock with your name on it heading to British shores. Following a short replenishment on Boxing Day, online retailer Amazon.co.uk has confirmed that it’s expecting new next generation bundles to arrive in...
'Tis the season to be merry
Stop dozing in front of the television, because Best Buy.com has fresh PlayStation 4 stock available online. It’s been a couple of weeks since the North American retailer last had supply available, but – in what we can only describe as a Christmas miracle – the store now has a bunch of bundles up fo
If that big rectangular box under your Christmas tree didn’t turn out to be a PlayStation 4, then you may want to sit down before reading on. We’ve been in touch with virtually all of the UK’s biggest supermarkets and high street stores, and we’re afraid that Sony’s next generation console is going to remain scarce...
Put your Christmas money to one side
As promised, British-based retailer GAME has got some fresh PlayStation 4 stock available – but it’s not going to give it away. The online iteration of the specialist store has two gigantic bundles available, each featuring a 500GB console, 12 month PlayStation Plus subscription, and a couple of Blu-ray...
Selling like greased lightning
For a console that’s broken all sorts of records around the world, the PlayStation 4 has been curiously absent from the top of most retailers’ best sellers lists in recent weeks. That’s because the system has been more-or-less sold out s
Christmas comes early
We’re struggling to find novel ways to introduce these PlayStation 4 stock posts, so let’s get straight to the point: Amazon.com has a brand new batch of next generation consoles to sell to those who have a quick enough cursor. Everything’s currently in stock, from the standalone system to Knack bundles and everything...
Your time is running out
We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you haven’t secured a PlayStation 4 console yet, then the chances of tracking one down before Christmas are slim. There’s still a sliver of hope, however, if you happen to reside near a GAME store. The British retailer announ
Variety is the spice of life
There’s been new PlayStation 4 stock flooding into British stores for the past couple of days, and popular specialist retailer ShopTo.net is the latest outlet to join the party. The firm has a whole slew of bundles available with guaranteed Christmas delivery – some of which are certain to stretch your bank balan
Last minute miracle
If you’re in the UK, there’s still time to secure a PlayStation 4 before Christmas. Mega-retailer Amazon.co.uk has updated its product pages for the next generation console, indicating that it will have fresh supply of the sought-after system before Santa slips down your chimney. You’re going t
Now that they've won the ashes, Australians can turn their attention to a much more pressing and important matter: where to purchase a PlayStation 4. We recently learned that the Japanese giant intends to keep store shelves stocked over the Christmas period, but if you haven't locked down a system yet, you probably won't be getting one...
Snag a system in your local supermarket
As rumoured late last week, Walmart-owned supermarket giant Asda will have fresh PlayStation 4 stock in many of its stores tomorrow. The retailer released a list of participating outlets earlier this evening, stating that it will have "limited quantities" of the sought after machine readily available in the...
Sony’s currently flooding both the UK and North America with one final batch of PlayStation 4 consoles before Christmas, and Best Buy.com is the latest retailer to put the system up for sale. At the time of writing, the online store has a slew of different options, including some decent bundles featuring the next generation...
We hope that your cursor finger is faster than Usain Bolt, because Asda has brand new PlayStation 4 stock available for general sale. The firm promised that it would be getting new inventory shortly, and they’ve hit the supermarket’s website this morning. You have a few options available, so make sure that you’re paying...
Jack Tretton doesn't even have a console yet
Sony has broken virtually every system sales record in history with the PlayStation 4, but that’s not stopped some people from pondering whether it’s attempting to increase demand by holding back stock. Unsurprisingly, SCEA president Jack Tretton has rubbished such claims, stating that the...
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...
Nice work, Geoffrey
Shopping online can be a bit of a gamble when availability is low. As such, you may be forgiven for not wanting to pin your PlayStation 4 hopes on an unfair race to the checkout screen. Unfortunately, with Sony’s next generation system in short supply, it may represent your best hope of getting a console before Christmas...
Get them before they're gone
There’ll come a day when you’ll be able to walk into a shop and purchase a PlayStation 4 without needing to worry about whether or not it’s actually in stock – but that moment is not now. Sony’s next generation system has been in short supply in the UK since its release on 29th November, and remains difficult...
Grab a Christmas console
Did you miss out on the new PlayStation 4 stock at Best-Buy last weekend? Don't worry, because there is still hope that you'll be able to snag a new system in North America before Christmas. Mega retailer Walmart has announced that it will have fresh supply available from Sunday, 15th December – but you'll need to be fast...
Consoles expected to be readily available before Christmas
We’ve been monitoring the PlayStation 4 stock situation in the UK keenly over the past few days. Many stores have been sold out since the system’s release on 29th November, but following the arrival of Phase 3 units at GAME, it seems that Sony
Sony's system available soon
If you’re living in the UK, there’s still hope that you may receive a PlayStation 4 in time for Christmas. We’ve been in contact with Argos, and have been informed that the catalogue-based retailer is expecting a fresh shipment of systems on 13th December. A representative for the outlet told us to keep an eye on...
Snag a system before Christmas
Just like fellow North American retailer Best Buy, a leaked advertisement has revealed that Target is expecting new PlayStation 4 stock imminently. A promotional slip for the store dated 15th December states that the sought after system will be r
Only in limited quantities
We’ve been fairly thorough with our PlayStation 4 stock updates in the UK, but we appreciate that our readership spans further than the British Isles. Part of the reason for our focus, however, is down to the fact that Sony’s next generation console has been incredibly supply constrained across North America following...
At least there's plenty of stock
It was perhaps inevitable when the PlayStation 4 started selling out that wild consoles would begin fetching enormous figures on auction sites such as eBay. As we’ve been reporting over the past few days, Sony’s super machine is pretty difficult to find around the globe ?
GAME, Argos, and Tesco in-stock for the holidays
You want a PlayStation 4, and we’re determined to help you to find one. Sony’s next generation system has been a smash success in the UK, selling a record-breaking 250,000 units in just 48 hours – but the platform holder has still struggled to meet demand. That means that consoles are in short...
Out of stock
Sony’s revamped PlayStation Camera probably wasn’t at the top of your PlayStation 4 wishlist when you picked up the next generation console, but now that you've had a chance to spend some time with the system – and ogled The Playroom’s easy Trophy list – you may be coming around to the idea of snapping up the upgraded optical...
Zap 'em up
Sony’s next generation console is breaking records all over the globe at the moment – and there’s no sign of that enthusiasm slowing down. Amazon.com temporarily restocked the next generation console in North America earlier this week, but it sold out in approximately 25 minutes.
Keep your eyes peeled
Following up on the tantalising news that PS4 stock has been trickling into GAME stores today, we reached out to Argos to see what its stock situation looks like. If you're desperately trying to source a console this side of Christmas, it certainly looks like it's worth keeping your eyes on Argos to see when its next...
Add to basket
Are you still struggling to find a PlayStation 4? New stock is arriving around the UK as we type – but you’re going to need to be speedy if you hope to secure one of the sought after systems. GAME outlets throughout the country are reporting that they’ve received Phase 3 stock of the next generation platform today, and while...
Available for a pretty penny
Are you hoping to get a PlayStation 4 before Christmas? The consoles are becoming scarcer than fairy dust, but UK retailer Zavvi has the system in stock right now – assuming that you’re willing to pay a premium for the privilege of spending your holidays with the Helghast. Available for the paltry sum of
Cutting it fine
You really should have pre-ordered a PlayStation 4 a long time ago if you wanted to get one in time for launch, but there is still hope at some stores around the UK. To be in with a chance of nabbing a wild console, you’re probably going to need to consider queuing up soon as we’re expecting the system to sell out quick. Still,
Questionable practices going on
Standalone Move controllers are as rare as hen's teeth at the moment no matter where you live in the world, but particularly in New Zealand where the controller has been sold out for over three weeks. Has that stopped unscrupulous retailers from advertising the controller as "in stock" to get more sales?...
May not be able to meet demand
And so the struggle to find Move commences. Retailers across New Zealand are reporting that their stocks of Move won't be enough to satisfy their customers when the controller is launched on September 16th. Sounds like Sony has a monster hit on its hands then, right? Well, no: Simon Barton, of retail chain Mighty Ape,...
