Second PS4 Batch in Japan Sold Out in Mere 14 Hours

By   /   3 years ago

Pre-orders for ‘First Limited Pack’ of PS4 opened up for a second time yesterday in Japan over at Sony’s own web-store. Sony had two different versions for the latest batch up for sale; one with the camera and the other without it, and both sold out in just 14 hours.

Although no one knows how much the stock was for both variations, the version with the new PS Eye bundled together sold out much faster than the other one, running out of stock in a little over 8 hours.

Sony has halted further orders for now, but the page requests visitors to check the page again at a later date for pre-orders to re-open.

Earlier this month, the first batch of pre-orders for PlayStation 4 went live on Amazon Japan, only to be completely sold out in a number of minutes. When Nojima opened up their pre-order service, their servers imploded from the traffic.

Joshin ran out of stock in minutes, much like Amazon Japan. The quantity of stock for the first batch is not known either.

Considering the speed of pre-orders for the first batch, one could rightly assume that Sony put up more units for pre-orders on its own store with the second batch. Everything can only be conjecture at this point, though, since we have no evidence of the amount of pre-orders made in these relatively short time spans.

Guess we’ll just have to wait until February 22nd to see how Sony’s new console fares in its home-ground. If the pre-orders are anything to go by, Sony might find itself shipping less pieces of hardware and failing to meet consumer demand. For the western and European markets, we just have to wait a month.
