GameStop has revealed that it has sold out of the company’s current stock allocation of the PS4, with 2.3 million customers waiting for the console from the company globally. The 2.3 million remaining customers are in a waiting list to be informed when the console is back in stock, suggesting demand for the console for months to come.
Tony Bartel, President of GameStop, said:
“In addition to selling through all of our reservations and some additional allocation that we have received from Sony, we still have over 2.3 million customers on the First to Know List, which indicates continued demand for months to come.”
The figure doesn’t indicate pre-orders, but rather people waiting to know when the console will be available again. But in either case, it’s a huge number of people interested in purchasing the console. It will be interesting to see how many customers are on waiting lists with other companies around the world.
