PS4 Gets “Last Batch” on Amazon Japan Before Launch; Sells Out Again in a Couple Hours

on February 6, 2014 5:04 PM

Those that still wanted to pre-order the upcoming PS4 in Japan got a last chance before launch today, even if it was a rather short-lived one.

Amazon Japan tweeted this morning that a “last batch” of the First Limited Pack was available for preorder. Two hours later the allocated units were already sold out.

According to what was said today during Sony’sĀ earnings calls, the Japanese launch of the PS4 is expected to bolster the already considerable sales numbers of the console. Given that it sold out pretty much immediately every time it was made available for pre-order, that wouldn’t be very surprising.
