PlayStation VR Sells Out Almost Instantly on European Amazon Stores (UPDATED)

PlayStation VR Sells Out Almost Instantly on European Amazon Stores (UPDATED)

Today PlayStation VR was made available for pre-order on European Amazon stores including Uk, Germany and France, but it wasn’t up there for long.

The headset remained available only a couple of minutes, before going sold out, with no mention on when it’ll be available again. Only Italy is lagging a bit behind, and there the headset is still available at the moment of this writing, even if we don’t know for how long.

It surely seems to be a strong start for Sony’s virtual reality headset, probably propelled by the PS4’s installed base, and by the price, which is the lowest among the major virtual reality headsets.

Update: Amazon UK just put up a second batch, so if you live in the land of Her Majesty and you’re still looking for a unit, here’s your chance. Unfortunately, based on the initial allocation of units, those who pre-order this new batch don’t have guaranteed day-one delivery. It remains sold out on the French and German stores.

“Due to limited stock we are only able to offer one unit per customer per address. We do not currently have a release date for this product. Based on our initial allocation we cannot guarantee release day delivery if you ordered after 11:45 GMT, Wednesday 16 March, 2016. You will be notified via email of the expected delivery date closer to the time. This product comes with a UK plug and therefore may not be suitable for use outside of the UK.”

Update 2: now the headset is sold out in Italy as well.
