GameStop has ceased taking pre-orders for Sony's next-generation console, PlayStation 4, the retailer confirmed with GameInformer.

"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.
