Yesterday we reported that Sony had reminded gamers that if they wanted to get their hands on the PlayStation VR in a timely manner, today would be the last day that they would be able to pre-order the headset. We know that it is only releasing in October, but presumably Sony was trying to give themselves some wiggle room to manage their inventory better.
Now if you were slow on the uptake and were only planning on pre-ordering the headset later tonight, we’re afraid you’re out of luck. According to GameSpot, they have been told by a representative of GameStop that they have since sold out their entire allocation of PlayStation VR pre-orders.
There will no longer be anywhere else that you can pre-order them, meaning that you’ll have to wait until October for its release in order to purchase it, but then again that’s assuming that retailers are able to maintain enough inventory. Given the demand we’re seeing right now, we reckon you might have some trouble at launch as well.
That being said, Sony did warn us that supply could be constrained at the start, and given that the PlayStation VR is the cheapest out of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, we guess this shouldn’t really be a surprise.
