"Due to high demand for the system, GameStop is not currently taking additional store reservations for the PlayStation 4," the GameStop spokesperson told GameInformer. A statement on the retailer's online store also notifies consumers that it has sold out of the next-generation console and offers a pre-order information mailing list for those interested.
GameStop began taking pre-orders for PS4 on June 11 with a $100 deposit, that would be applied towards the console's $399.99 cost. Pre-orders were limited to one per household. Games such as Infamous: Second Son, Battlefield 4, Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag are still available for pre-order, along with the DualShock 4 controller and PlayStation camera.
The retailer stopped taking pre-orders for Microsoft's next-generation, the Xbox One, in June. Employees from GameStop locations around the country told Polygon at the time that the company had reached its launch-day allocation. However, the company said it is still accepting orders for Microsoft's new hardware via its online store.
Polygon has reached out to GameStop for comment.
