Amazon Japan Received New “Sizable” Allocation of PS4, But Was Sold Out Again

Japan is preparing for the local release of the PS4, scheduled to come in about 70 days, and the local branch of Amazon announced that on December the 9th that it received a new allocation of PS4 units with the tweet you can see below.


It’s actually pretty funny that they felt the need to put a disclaimer stating that the Amazon PrimeAir chopper displayed can’t carry the PS4, since it weighs 2.8 Kg, as the carrying capacity of the chopper is only 2.3 Kg…

Then they posted a second tweet yesterday (see below), stating that the stock that was allocated was “substantial,” but it was sold out again, and they’ll warn customers when more will be available.


Of course we don’t know exactly what they mean with “substantial,” but Sony promised several times to do everything in its power to make sure Japanese customers are provided their consoles by launch.
