    Whatever a PS4 Launch Edition is on Amazon, it's already sold out

    Amazon.com: PlayStation 4 Standard Edition: Video Games


    Product Alert
    The standard version of the PlayStation 4 is identical to the Launch Edition. Due to high demand, we cannot guarantee Release-Date Delivery on the standard version of the PlayStation 4. We will deliver the standard version of PlayStation 4 as close to its release date as possible.

    PlayStation 4 Launch Edition Sold out on Amazon | AnalogHype


    Less than 24 hours since the page went live, the launch edition of the PlayStation 4 has sold out on Amazon. This edition features the same pack-ins as the standard edition listed on their page. The only difference between the two is that customers who pre-ordered the launch edition will receive their console on day one. Standard edition buyers will get their when more systems are available.

    A few hours ago, the Day One edition of the Xbox One also sold out on Amazon. So far, it looks like both Sony and Microsoft have peaked the interest in their respective next-generation consoles.

    Were you able to secure a Day One Xbox or a Launch Edition PlayStation 4? Let us know in the comments below.

    That was rather fast, if you ask me. I think that the Xbone's failure of attracting people and making them want to buy a new cable box "scared" so many possible consumers that they decided to play it safe an just buy a PS4 right off the bat.

    Why are so many people pre-ordering JUST the PS4. What about bundles. It will most probably be cheaper to get a bundle with 2 or 3 games than buy them seperately

    Might have something to do with bragging rights, or them not wanting to take a risk of the game they want to buy not being bundled with the console. There's also the thing about bundles running out even faster than non-bundles when consoles are released.

    I live in New Jersey and the gamestop by me was allowed only 25 preorders the day after E3, that was yesterday, the manager said preorders will be available as they need them. They had no info on model number and no idea about the bundles on the gamestop website. They knew almost nothing

    Launch edition = guaranteed delivery of first batch of PS4s we ordered.
    Standard edition = we sold out of the first batch, you'll have to wait for more stock.

    The bundles at Game Stop are the same price as buying everything separate and I think thats stupid. Its either because people will think its cheaper because its bundled, or its just easier for them to have all your stuff ready Idk...

    I was going to wait for the bundles, but two factors led me to pre-order the plain vanilla PS4.

    1. Availability. There's already a mad rush for PS4 pre-orders, that's not going to ease up. Trying to buy one of these suckers at retail is going to be a nightmare through November and December.

    2. PS+ bonuses. It could be several months before retail stock becomes readily available. I want to maximise my PS4 PS+ benefits by getting on board at launch. Those bonuses are likely to outweigh any benefits of buying a retail bundle.

    Got mine preordered at Gamestop. Hopefully they'll be available at launch. Not sure of all the games that are available at launch so I just preordered Watchdogs for now.

    When I preordered mine at Gamestop, they said that there store was (for now) only given 20 PS4 for pre-orders and 10 XBox Ones. And PS4 was outpacing Xbox
