In just a few months, PS4 owners everywhere will finally get to experience the long-awaited PlayStation VR as it brings virtual reality to consoles this fall, with the final wave of pre-orders before the device’s release in October having already sold out.

Sony had made a new wave of PlayStation VR units available to pre-order today (exclusively through GameStop) as the final “summer wave” of units available to purchase before the device’s launch this fall, with the units having gone on sale today at 7am PDT/10am EDT.

However, in a statement to GameSpot, a representative from GameStop confirmed that this wave of pre-order units sold out “within minutes” of their availability this morning, with Sony having confirmed that “supplies are limited” and that this would be the final opportunity to pre-order a PlayStation VR unit before launch.

Though pre-orders for the device will no longer be available before October, Sony assured on the PlayStation Blog that “if you miss out, we will have product available in retail stores nationwide at launch.”

PlayStation VR will debut for PS4 on October 13th, 2016.
