The Japan situation was because of short supply in Japan. In the US there isn't any supply issues. Also, it's not just the console that's just had stock issues on Amazon, it's also exclusive games and digital codes. 

There was an article on it.

Yeah, forgot about the PSN codes thing, that seemed to be resolved quite quickly though.

I still see no reason why Amazon would deliberately miss out on PS4 sales though, makes little sense really as the damn things are obviously still selling gangbusters.

Depends.

If Sony for instance would have cut down a more or less large chunk of the retailer margin, shops like Gamestop are in no position to argue as it still represents the largest part of their income by extension (selling hardware means selling the same customers the games also most of the time - and it's the games which normally have the better margins for retailers) but Amazon or Walmart who sell lots of different things have stable income from other stuff they sell and thus can fight back like not stocking Sony articles anymore.

That's a good point. 



PS4 games "stock issue" are always resolved the day of, or after release date. Detroit got stocked exactly on release date. Ironically pass the pre order 20% off deal.

Funfact: I just hit the lottery. After executing the program I had 2 entries for God of War and none for Breath of the Wild and was pretty confused. :D Seems like amazon changed rankings while I was reading the data. But after a restart everything is fine now. Strage that amazons ranking switches at like :39 minutes as opposed to a full hour or something even in minutes.
