Listed as "currently sold out", the page prompts users to sign up to be notified if pre-orders are reopened for Sony’s upcoming next-generation console.

A GameStop spokesperson told Game Informer that "due to high demand for the system, GameStop is not currently taking additional store reservations for the PlayStation 4".

Last month, a leaked internal GameStop memo suggested that the retailer would offer "unlimited pre-orders" until further notice.

PlayStation executive Andrew House previously revealed that Sony was boosting its sales projections for the PS4, following its positive showing at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
