Best Buy will have PS4 in stock on Sunday, Dec. 22 at stores throughout North America, and this may be your last chance at getting a PlayStation 4 during the holiday shopping season. A report by Bizjournals from Dec. 20 confirms that Best Buy will have available PS4 in stock for Dec. 22, though stock will be somewhat limited.
Jeff Shelman, spokesman for Best Buy, invites people to Best Buy this weekend to get a PS4; however, he does advice lining up early as quantities are rather limited. Find Shelman’s full comment below:
Quantities will be somewhat limited, so if you want to be there, you should be in line before we open at 7 a.m.
Following its Nov. 15 launch, the PS4 has had limited availability at retail and online stores. Shelman describes recent PS4 stocking as “not good.” Conversely, Microsoft’s Xbox One enjoys ample stock at Best Buy locations. If you are looking to get a PS4 or an Xbox One, Best Buy seems like a good bet this weekend.
The perception is that the next-gen systems are totally sold out and if you want one before the holidays, you’re out of luck. At Best Buy, at least, that’s not the case.
We have learned that Best Buy may have additional PS4 stock available on Dec. 29, though we are waiting to hear more information. Lineup early if you plan to get a PS4 on Dec. 22.
