Both PS4 and Xbox One Sold Out On Amazon
Did I not warn you yesterday? Following news that Gamestop has stop pre-orders for the PS4, as well as Best Buy running out of pre-orders for the Xbox One, Amazon has announced that they have run out of stock of both next-generation consoles, with both day one edition orders now closed.
Amazon says they’re still taking orders for both consoles under the “standard edition” label, but the ship date for these versions cannot be confirmed until launch.

“The PS4 & Xbox One release day editions are sold out. You can still pre-order the Standard Editions, we just can’t promise a delivery date.”
It is unclear whether Amazon will have their day-one stock replenished or whether this is it for those who are planning to get their consoles the day they release. Expect more news like this to follow in the coming days, as consumers scramble to get their order set at any outlet they can.
One thing to consider is that these orders are selling out just short of a month after they were available with a price, with both consoles receiving their recommend retail prices at E3. If you’re planning on getting your console locally on day one, you might want to pre-order as soon as we receive pricing, since it looks like the stick doesn’t last long. And we aren’t exactly getting the same amount of preference stock as the rest of the world, I’m guessing.
The PS4 will launch locally later this year, while the Xbox One will only launch next year.
