PlayStation 4 UK Pre-Orders No Longer Guaranteed Launch Delivery by Sony

Gamers will be notified if the stores cannot get them the hardware

Sony announces that it can no longer guarantee that those who pre-order the PlayStation 4 from a United Kingdom store will get a device on launch date, according to data from the retailers.

ShopTo states, “Sony have confirmed all PlayStation 4 pre-orders placed from 6th August will now not be guaranteed for launch. You can still pre-order PS4 with us in case we receive cancellations and can fulfill your order for launch.”

Rumors about such a move appeared towards the end of July for the first time.

It’s unclear whether Sony has enough PlayStation 4's in production to fulfill orders in the United States or if a similar warning will soon be linked to worldwide pre-orders.

Analysts believe that pre-orders for next-gen consoles are much bigger than those for the PS3 and the Xbox 360.

Sony says that the PlayStation 4 will be launched worldwide before Christmas for a price of 399 dollars or Euro.
