Sony to GameStop: “The Flood Gates Are Open for PS4 System Reserves”

Sony to GameStop: “The Flood Gates Are Open for PS4 System Reserves”

A Memo given to GameStop stores this morning indicates that Sony has given the mega-retailer the go-ahead to take unlimited amount of PS4 preorders.

Here’s the information given to stores around the U.S. today:

1. PS4 Reservation New Information
Starting now, through this weekend and until further notice, Sony has allowed us to take unlimited preorders beyond your current allotments. In other-words, the flood gates are open for PS4 system reserves, we will let you know when to stop preordering based on limited quantities.

Two sources have verified the news with Gametrailers. Apparently many GameStop locations weren’t close to fulfilling their PS4 preorders due to a high allocation count. One store was cited to have initially 24 PS4′s allocated for preorders, which then increased to 138 systems throughout the week. Currently that location has 66 preorders for the PS4. In contrast with the Xbox One, there’s 12 preoders with an allocation of 18.

Sony warned last week that demand for the new console may outstrip supply, but after Microsoft’s DRM 180, it seems Sony intends to ride the current wave of PS4 goodwill, and has ramped up production of the console. Last week, GameStop said it would buy very single PS4 unit that Sony could produce.

If the leak memo above means anything, it’s that GameStop seems to be doing exactly what it promised.
