That's one hell of a site! Good find!


How'd you come across it?

I found through Google when I was looking for a Switch back in March.

We received a huge amount of stock but demand was unprecedented.

I'm expecting PS4's best November by a considerable distance, with significant Pro sales and PSVR topping 500k.



Someone over at ResetEra who apparently works at a retailer is expecting PS4 shortages today https://www.resetera.com/threads/npd-october-2017-shadow-of-war-1-sw-nintendo-switch-1-hw.6580/page-39#post-1328534



Crazy thing... Sony forgot to make more? I would say they just couldn't see that 199 would make the console fly from shelves.

Even I'm considering asking for a PS4, and I already have one.

Why should that stop you? Hurry up and join the 2 PS4s master race

I'm also part of it, but with a Father PS4 and teenager PS4Pro

Playstations at $200 or less become unstoppable. This is not the PS3 which never hit that price, PS4 will sell in a similar vein to PS2.

Just wanted to say that I bought a PS3 with a free copy of Batman Arkham Origins and The Last of On Black Friday in like 2013 or something.

This one I learnt about on the release of PS4+X1 because people posted here in VGC and my friend would travel to USA near launch.

And if you actually looked at the list,you'd notice almost all lines with times > 3am are sold out, while there is stock for times < 3am. Pretty much tells you that PS4 likely IS sold out late in the morning anywhere.

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ps4+

The BF SKU is sold out but if you look at that list only the Battlefront 2 bundle is in stock.



In europe the Ps4 has been under 200€ on some occassions (like the switch launch 180€).  If I was comfortable with it I would have filmed the gamesdepartement in Mediamarkt this morning.  PS4 and Xbox ones were flyiing of the shevels (The last one went down to 175 €).   Also saw a shop with PSVR out of stock sign (199€).  

Love black friday =p; (atleast in Europe)

Thats not true, PS4 1TB is also in stock and Uncharted 4 Bundle is in stock, so basicly you have 3 bundles in stock and only one sold out. And point same in any case, PS4 is not sold out, that BF SKU was just PS4 1TB model with just lower price tag, you have same that PS4 model on Amazon but for higher price point availible.
