New PS4 UK preorders no longer guaranteed for launch
Retailers Amazon, ShopTo say Sony can no longer confirm preordered units will ship for launch.
Gamers who preorder a PlayStation 4 in the United Kingdom are no longer guaranteed that their system will arrive for launch day, according to a new Eurogamer report.
A message from retailer ShopTo reads, "Sony have confirmed all PlayStation 4 pre-orders placed from 6th August will now not be guaranteed for launch. You can still pre-order PS4 with us in case we receive cancellations and can fulfill your order for launch."
The UK arm of Amazon confirmed a similar situation, saying that "due to high demand," PS4 orders placed on or after August 6 may not arrive on launch date. "We will ship orders as soon as we receive sufficient inventory," the messages reads.
A ShopTo representative told Eurogamer that this directive stems from Sony and applies to all European retailers.
The PS4 launches worldwide this holiday season, alongside the Xbox One, though Sony has yet to announce a specific release date for its next-generation console.
