PSVR Sells Out on Amazon in the US and UK; No Estimated Restock Date

PlayStation-VR

A week on from its launch, and PlayStation VR is no longer available from major online retailer Amazon in either the US or the UK.

The company has now completely sold out of both the PSVR launch bundle and core headset; with no estimated restocking date currently available. Amazon’s listings for the virtual reality unit currently refers users to third-party Marketplace sellers, with the cheapest offering being $100 over MSRP.

It is thought the virtual reality headset is being snapped up in great numbers in time for the holiday season; it recently sold out entirely in Australia, and stock shortages have been reported elsewhere.

It’s not all bad news for US consumers, though, with other retailers including Walmart, GameStop and Best Buy all currently listing PSVR as being available to order online.

In the UK, meanwhile, it might be more of a struggle for gamers to get their hands on the system. Leading games retailer GAME currently has no stock available online, and there is limited availability elsewhere.

            Third Party Sellers does not equal Amazon. Amazon is out of stock, third party sellers do have it listed as in stock, but that is basically people buying and reselling to make a profit, with the cheapest one being $85 more than retail price.

            I was responding to you saying Amazon shows it in stock when infact psvr sold by amazon directly is sold out, which is exactly what this entire article is about, Amazon being sold out of PSVR. Best Buy having them in stock is irrelevant for this conversation.

          • Hvd

            so go to best buy and buy a head set there are plenty in stock.only bundles are sold out but psvr isnt just bundles.who

            ps who cares if a short supply of bundles are sold out?same thing aswhat nvidia does with the gtx 1070 and 1080.release a short supply just so you can say psvr sold out…lol

            key words: Amazon, Sold out

            (not third parties on Amazon who incidentally have marked it up and promise no delivery date till at least the 31st) Just stop Xbert!!! LOL

          Its clear the $499 version is the one that people want since it constantly keeps getting sold out on Amazon, Best Buy & Walmart

          • Hvd

            yep but the $399 head set is sitting on a shelf on best buy so how did psvr sell out????

          • uptownsoul

            The version people see as the better value keeps selling out on Amazon, Best Buy & Walmart over and over again

            But I agree…The title should read “The more expensive PSVR bundle is sold out in most places in USA & UK”

          • Hvd

            yep thats what im trying to get out there.the issue is people thinking that omg psvr is sold out everywhere when its not.

            psvr isnt just the bundle.

    • jacksjus

      • Hvd

    • Ucouldntbemorewrong

      • Hvd

        what about the $399 base version?if thats on the shelves it not sold out.

        $399 version plenty in stock.

        • Ucouldntbemorewrong

          Most people don’t want the $399 version, to costly otherwise if you need everything.

          • Hvd

            thats not the point this article says psvr sells out.it only the bundle the head set is still able to be bought so psvr hasnt sold out.

          • Ucouldntbemorewrong

            Actually the point of the article was that it was sold out of Amazon which both Bundle and Base are. Then the article goes on to mention you can get it at retail. That’s the point of the article.

          • Hvd
