Amazon receives PlayStation 4 stock, shares photo to prove it

Amazon has posted an image to their Facebook page as pointed out by our forum member Lone Wanderer Chicken, showing one of their warehouses where a huge stockpile of PlayStation 4 consoles has arrived and is ready to ship to customers.

Gamers who pre-ordered the PS4 from Amazon will be delighted to see that that the online retailer is already stocked up and ready for launch day shipments of the eagerly awaited device.

Sony's next-generation console will be launching in the coming weeks in most parts of the world. Ever since the console went up for pre-order after its announcement at E3, there has been a great demand for the launch day shipments.

Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 4 go head to head in the next-gen console wars this holiday season and it's good to see that retailers are also gearing up to meet the demand. The PlayStation 4 is priced at $399 in the United States and €399 in Europe. It will be available to customers starting November 15 in the US, and November 29 in the European markets.

Hmmm... how long will it be before this picture appears on various scam facebook pages announcing that their is a quantity of new PlayStation 4's that have been unpackaged and so they can't be sold and so the facebook page have no option but to give them away... simply like and share the post to be in with a chance of winning(!)

36 boxes per pallet - shame the image doesn't show how many pallets!

You forgot the center column. It is easily close to 54.

Wow that's a lot of PS4's... The Best Buy down the street from me only got in 170 PS4's and they are all accounted for....

For some reason, I smell shortages with next gen...

I am pretty sure both MS & Sony will engineer shortages so they say "We sold out; THE CONSOLE IS A SUCCESS!!"

This may be plausible with smart phones, but don't think it's the case with a device meant to be in production for the next 5-10 years. That's not to say marketing will use this fact out of context.

Their wont' be shortages in the long run however this close to xmas it's simple rule of supply and demand. They will be playing a simple game of how many can they get away with shipping to satisfy the general demand but still keep demand.

The higher a product is in demand the more people will be willing to pay for it. If everyone had "plenty" of them their would be more offers on (admittedly causing more demand) but it will devalue the product slightly.

God Damn! every day there is a new post about PS4 or Xbone.

****, I know, right? You'd think we were on the verge of an event that only happens once every 5 or 6 years, or something.

I think word would have more than enough since the name is Amazon. Picture is unnecessary.. But the question is, did any employee there got the chance to do a little hands on with the device ??

I believe the US prices usually are written out without tax included, don't quote me on that though!

You are correct: prices in the US are plus tax while in Europe taxes are, usually, included.

still makes it cheaper in the US. some countries in the EU have VA taxes that are killer. But they are stuck between a rock and hardplace
