Like many of our US readers, if you are reading this in the UK and have made up your mind that you want a PS4 but haven’t got around to preorder a console then you may have left it to late to get your console at launch as Sony has confirmed that they can no longer guarantee you a system on launch.
A directive was sent to a number of UK retailers which ShopTo displayed:
“Sony have confirmed all PlayStation 4 pre-orders placed from 6th August will now not be guaranteed for launch. You can still pre-order PS4 with us in case we receive cancellations and can fulfil your order for launch.”
This was followed by Amazon displaying a message that read:
“Please note – due to high demand, orders placed for the PlayStation 4 console from 6th August may be received after release date. We will ship orders as soon as we receive sufficient inventory.”
Will this news have an impact on you?
