UK Retailer, GAME, have filled up their allocation for Sony's hand-held console, the PSP. The PSP is due to go on sale on the 1st of September within Europe. Shortages are expected.
GAME released this public announcement:
"ATTENTION: We have run out of our initial allocation of Sony PSPs but are continuing to take orders for our next batch - expected sometime in September," says the statement. "As the UK's leading gaming specialist you have the best chance of securing one through us, so pre-order now to secure yourself a place in the queue. Please be aware that if you have already ordered your console from us before 4pm on August 5th 2005, rest assured that you will receive your PSP for release day,"
To date, UK gamers waiting to get hold of a PSP were forced to import a unit. However, Sony has taken a dim view on this practice and has attempted to stop it. The PSP will be available in the UK for Â£178.99 on 1st September.
