Sony has advised several European retailers that pre-orders placed after August 6 will not be guaranteed a unit at launch.
Retailer Shopto posted the following message on its website: “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 fulfill your order for launch.”
Amazon.co.uk followed with their own message shortly after: “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.”
