Amazon sells out of PS4 and Xbox One

Ps4 And Xbox One

Company still offering pre-orders but can't guarantee they'll arrive day one.

Following yesterday's spate of news that Xbox One and PlayStation 4 day-one pre-orders are selling out, Amazon has announced that it too can no longer offer launch day consoles.

Speaking to customers on it's Facebook account, the online retailer revealed that demand for launch day consoles has exceeded supply.

“After a crazy and exciting month, we’ve sold through our initial allocations of PS4 and Xbox One,” explained the company.

“Thank you to all who have ordered and shared your opinions. We have the Standard Editions for both consoles still available, but we can’t guarantee these at release.”

Gamers were urged to check back with Amazon regularly to see if it gets its hands on any more release day allocations.

In the US, electronics giant Best Buy announced that it was out of Xbox One pre-orders, while top games retailer GameStop revealed it was pulling its offer on PlayStation 4 pre-orders.

Analysts at retail researcher Kantar Worldpanel recently revealed that Amazon had benefited most since the decline of HMV, securing its spot as the UK's top entertainment shop with 23.4% of the market.
