Amazon hits Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launch cap

New, 35 comments

Retail website Amazon has run out of allocations for Microsoft's Xbox One console and Sony's PlayStation 4 next-generation hardware, according to a notification on the retailer's official Facebook page, which states that it is accepting pre-orders for standard editions but won't guarantee availability at launch.

"After a crazy and exciting month, we've sold through our initial allocations of PS4 and Xbox One," the notice states. "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. Please check back here as we'll update you first if we receive further release day allocations."

Amazon opened pre-orders for the Xbox One on June 10, and the listing stated that the console will be available on Nov. 30. Earlier this week, Best Buy announced that it will no longer accept Xbox One pre-orders. The day before that, GameStop ceased taking pre-orders for PlayStation 4, with the retailer barring pre-orders for Xbox One in June.
