In a memo acquired by GameTrailers.com that was sent to GameStop stores, Sony has given them the green light to take as many pre-orders as they can get. This is rather interesting news as given the polarity of the console it was expected to be in short supply.
The information in the memo stated;
- PS4 Reservation New Information
Starting now, through this weekend and until further notice, Sony has allowed us to take unlimited preorders beyond your current allotments. In other-words, the flood gates are open for PS4 system reserves, we will let you know when to stop preordering based on limited quantities.
From the statement above, one has to wonder if Sony has not achieved its initial pre-order assessments or if they are capable of ramping up production to meet the demand. We earlier reported that Amazon had record pre-order sales for both the PS4 and Xbox One in their Video Games department, so this seems a little unusual to say the least.
