GameStop has announced that they've stopped taking preorders of the PlayStation 4, stating they're "sold out", stating, "Due to high demand for the system, GameStop is not currently taking additional store reservations for the PlayStation 4".

However, the US brick-and-mortar retail chain is directing gamers to a mailing list.

Sony here's a business opportunity, loan them some money so they can buy more of your stuff. Oh right, they probably can't afford to :).

It's not about cost silly, it's just a stock level problem. there's only so many of the things to go around

They could always preorder another production batch from Sony, it doesn't need to physically exist to be sold, but you're probably right.

Well it kinda DOES have to physically exist at launch or people will be pissed off at getting theirs a week late and shit like that.

Not if it's clearly stated that it's for the second batch. Obviously people would shop elsewhere first but when everyone runs out of stock making sure that you get the second batch is still better than having to wait for the third.

Would people preorder second batches? Hmmm, usually supply problems get fixed quickly enough.

It depends on how big those batches are, if all other stores run out of supply as well a full month before the launch then people would most likely be willing to preorder even the second batch, otherwise probably not.
