GameStop will have "limited" supply of Xbox One, PS4 this weekend

Retailer confirms it will have small number of new consoles available to shoppers across the United States this weekend.

GameStop will have Xbox One and PlayStation 4 units in stock at its stores across the United States this weekend, the company announced today.

Supply is said to be "limited" and shoppers are encouraged to contact their local store or visit GameStop's website for availability details.

GameStop isn't the only retailer where you can grab a new console in time for the holidays. Amazon recently replenished its Xbox One supply, while Wal-Mart has received its largest PS4 shipment ever and will begin selling consoles this Sunday at 8 a.m. EDT.

The Xbox One and PS4 are locked in a dead heat for sales, with both consoles reaching 2 million units sold worldwide so far.

Meanwhile, plenty of stores have Wii U units in stock with lots of games available from either retails stores or the eShop. ;D

wow a retailer has limited quantities of a product. Good job staying on top of pointless news. I don't want to know how much this guy gets .

I don't think I'll bother with either console until next year. I would rather the bugs get worked out on the assembly line for a few months. I'll play the new Zelda for the time being. As far as some of the comments below; RELAX people. Your preferred system will do fine in the long run. Be gamers and enjoy games, not what system it is on.

Here in my area, South Texas, ps4 and xbox one are all sold out.. I have been looking for a ps4 but have not found one, however I will probably buy the xbox one...maybe in six months from now...

Redwood City Target had 12 XBox One's in stock (shelf space for them was literally full) both times I was there today. PS4 and (surprisingly) Wii U were sold out. Anyone hunting for an XBox in the area, that's your spot. PS or Nintendo, not so much.

I was just at target and they had at least a dozen xones and know one was buying them

I decided if there was a PS4 there today I would get one.  I have such a back log of PS3 games to finish it really was just an impulse thing.  The funny thing was that everyone was in the store waiting for the truck and everyone was buying PS4s.  I was surprised that of the first 10 people in line no one was even asking if there were Xboxes available.  Didn't think of it until I just reread the article but they must have been getting both on the truck.

LoL...XBones have been readily available at Best Buy, Target and ToysRUs in my area for the last week or so. How is this news?

On the other hand, the PS4 has been as rare as a leprechaun riding a unicorn.

I just wonder why there wasn't a production run of all the preorders then doubled up that number for the line waiters. What would it have hurt if 3 systems were left on the shelf at each store on launch week? It's not like they wouldn't sale before Christmas.

For all those saying your "local store" had x1s but no ps4s ever post the store name and location or get lost. So sick of people just being like "oh my store had 40 x1s sitting there".... Both are sold out right now and if any were sitting there is likely due to them just getting the system in...

Who said ps 4 would outsell xb1 8to1 before ?

When gamers play more games and they will find how console works in the real world, then it will show.

Accept that. Accept ps 4 is not superior in the real world guy. Same as ps 3 and even worse in some content for online and camera.

Ohhh stupid ps 4 fanboys.

@translucent17 your comment "know" (no) one was buying them" either shows you are a poor troll or stupid ... come to think of it, probably both.

@g0ldenpr0pet perhaps in your area (but I doubt it) but not in any other areas .... haven't seen an xbox available in any store since launch day. Anyhow, if sales are any indication, Xbox and PS4 are in a very close race. Troll call.

Other way around in my area, there are ps4 in Stock but no x1s

@Monsterkillah Not a very good marketing trick. More likely they do not want to sit on huge inventory for months on end before system release so they limit how many they manufacture before release. Creating inventory is a big risk and an opportunity to loose money even if they do sell out on day one.

@Monsterkillah Must be nice to pull facts out of your arse. The fact is gaming is a lot more mainstream than it's ever been since 2005 when Xbox 360 first launched. They didn't have to make as many consoles for the launch window before. The fact that consoles are extremely hot and sell out very fast is only proof you need to recognize there are a lot more consumers who want to own a console than in 2005.

@Monsterkillah Not true. If you don't have stock (Sony), but your competitor does (Microsoft), then every order you can't fill is and order that your rival gladly will.

Good question, because I've never seen anyone say that... 

I think your own insecurites may be showing.

@sethschroeder07 SF Bay Area...San Rafael BB, Pleasant Hill BB, Pinole BB, Emeryville BB; Pinole TRU, Pleasant Hill TRU, Emeryville TRU; Pinole Target, Richmond Target, Pleasant Hill Target, Emeryville Target. Don't check online, it's not accurate. Visit the actual location. I even took pictures, since I've been looking for holiday gifts. BB has them by the registers, Target and TRU in the glass cases.

@Kjranu@Monsterkillah 

U have no idea how business works dont u

ITs happens all the time

They limit the production to create hype of high demand just like the Wii U did and look how it ended up now

its a marathon not a sprint and what they did by limit the prod will just cost them more bcos less people are getting it by now

g0ldenpr0pet
g0ldenpr0pet

Yup. Sony's inability to fulfill the great demand = Microsoft's success. It's eh holidays, XBones are welcome under a tree.

@M3o5nster@AyebangLogically the PS4 should outsell the Xbox One with it having a cheaper price tag, im sure both consoles are most likely have equal sales, but it wont surprise me if the PS4 sells better, the Xbox One has decent launch games over the PS4 atm imo but I will be getting a PS4 over a Microsoft console any day! personal preference from previous experiences.

@naki68er All Best Buys have X-Box Ones available for sale every Sunday.  Common knowledge.

@Monsterkillah@Coolguy41506most retailers I have spoken to have said that xbox has been providing more stock.  I got my xbone today.  They had 5 left when I got there and the 4 people behind me in line bought them. Its very true that if the competitors product is in stock they will get sales of opportunity, especially from parents who dont get how big of a fanboy (either way) their kid is.

@Monsterkillah @Coolguy41506  Then does Gamestop represent the condition of the worldwide system seller as a whole?


Just using your own words against you to show the hypocrisy of your last statement.

@Monsterkillah @Coolguy41506 Don't really know what you're getting at here mate but if you scroll down to earlier comments you'll find similar stories of Sony being out of stock and Xbox being in stock across the USA. 


So obviously this isn't a problem exclusive to Aus and you are just ill-informed.

@Monsterkillah @Coolguy41506 Mate I'm just relating this to what I know there's no need to be a smart arse. PS4 has been out of stock since day one, but Xbox is pretty readily available, that's all I'm saying.

@Coolguy41506@Monsterkillah

So then Australia represent the condition of the worldwide system seller as a whole?

How bout PS4 already out of stock? becos its already sold out ? and the xbox is still sitting unsold unit ?
