PS4 back in stock at GameStop

After seeing "tremendous customer demand" during launch and throughout holiday, "limited" supply of Sony's new system now available at stores across the United States.

The PlayStation 4 is back in stock at GameStop stores across the United States, the retailer announced today. The company said it has been working with Sony since Christmas to receive more units, and now has a "limited" supply of the $399 console to offer shoppers across the country.

“As expected, we experienced tremendous customer demand for the new PS4 console during the initial launch and throughout the holiday season, selling out of the consoles just as quickly as we could stock them,” GameStop senior merchant Darron Nielsen said. “We have been working closely with Sony to replenish our inventory levels of the PS4 as quickly as possible to ensure the many customers still looking to purchase one are able to do so.”

PS4 availability will vary by store and consoles will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. You're encouraged to check stock levels at GameStop.com or by calling your local store. By comparison, the $500 Xbox One remains in stock at GameStop.

Despite being "supply-challenged" in 2013, the PS4 managed to make its way into 4.2 million homes worldwide during the year, better than the Xbox One's 3 million mark.

also you're trolling because you post SEVERAL comments under another's post. Disagreeing and causing unrest. The ability to reply does NOT give you the right to troll. Don't like what we said, Disagree, maybe leave a comment and MOVE ON. LOL

@andrew: just because you don't like the games doesn't mean others dont. So no, not "facts." Do you need a dictionary to tell the difference between "facts" & "opinions?"

What am I trolling against? For simply stating a fact? Why would you pay 400+ to play an average shooter(Killzone), a bad platformer(Knack), Resogun, and games that are already on last gen consoles? I bought a PS4 day one with Knack and Killzone, bought a Wii U day one with NSMBU, and getting an X1 either next week or the week after with Killer Instinct and Forza. Yet Im a fanboy. Yeah, makes sense.

I know BC doesn't seem that important...until you realize that's thousands of trophies you can't get on your new console, only on dusty old failing PS3 (if you still have room for it)

Now that the holiday rush and launch hype is gone, don't expect to see your shiny new consoles flying off shelves. People who aren't fanboys, tech fanatics, ebay sellers are all waiting for some good exclusive software or a price drop. So far I agree with Yahtzee that there's no good game enough to buy a giant box with no backwards compatability.

All the folks who desperately wanted one like tech fanatics, fanboys and ebay sellers got theirs, now we're going to see both PS4 and X1 stay in stock for a long time at least until some big killer game comes out that makes people want to buy new hardware.

Well killzone is alright but I've never been a killzone fan. Don't starve looks interesting but it's not enough to convince me to buy one yet.

^This. If you already have a last gen console, there really is no point in owning a ps4 right now. Only good game is Resogun, the rest of PS4's exclusives are meh.

There are lots of games, there just aren't many PS4 only games. If you have a PS3 *and* a PS4, just with a PSN Plus account you will be rolling in games without even having to buy anything.
