How is the PS4 and Xbox One stock situation looking for you at the moment in the UK and US? It doesn’t look too healthy at the moment if you are hoping to get one before Christmas, but we have seen that retailers are changing their status frequently as soon as new stock becomes available.
In the UK specifically, it is not looking too good. Amazon UK are sold out of both PS4 and Xbox One consoles. Amazon has said that they won’t have Xbox One stock in the UK until January 8, while they offer no date at all for the PS4 console.
Amazon US is slightly different, as the retailer has now updated their website to state that new Xbox One stock will be available on December 22. Unfortunately, the PS4 remains out of stock and we have seen Amazon third-party sellers use this to their advantage, hiking up the price of PS4 consoles to $680 which is ridiculous.
UK specialists GAME are also out of stock of both consoles, while GameStop in the US is a similar situation with both consoles sold out online – stores may offer better luck though.
Basically put, if you are fortunate to be able to find a retailer who still has PS4 or Xbox One stock before Christmas, you are very lucky indeed. Let us know if you have been trying to buy a console desperately before December 25.
Have you had any luck, or have you accepted that you’ll now have to wait until 2014?
