Sony to GameStop: “the flood gates are open” for PS4 pre-orders

sony-gamestop-ps4-memoGameStop sent out a memo this morning to their employees notifying them that Sony has allowed them to start taking “unlimited” pre-orders for the PS4, saying: “Starting now, through this weekend and until further notice, Sony has allowed us to take unlimited preorders beyond your current allotments. In other-words, the flood gates are open for PS4 system reserves, we will let you know when to stop preordering based on limited quantities.”  GameTrailers, who initially published the leaked memo, also noted that apparently one GameStop store started with 24 PS4 pre-orders, and saw that number rise to 138 by the day’s end. Speaking with SCEA CEO Jack Tretton last week, GameStop execs reportedly stated that they’d buy every single unit that could be manufactured.

“Starting now, through this weekend and until further notice, Sony has allowed us to take unlimited preorders beyond your current allotments. In other-words, the flood gates are open for PS4 system reserves, we will let you know when to stop preordering based on limited quantities.”

It looks like the flood gates have opened. Who’s placed a pre-order yet, or plans on reserving a PlayStation 4? Any thoughts on whether or not there will be shortages? Sound off in the comments below.
