GameStop may have stock of PlayStation 4 consoles freely available to buy off the shelf on launch day, the retailer has suggested.

The US chain tucked a note away in a press release confirming its PS4 launch plans overnight, stating that "while demand is extremely high, customers who did not pre-order a console are encouraged to contact their store location or to check availability".

Sony has previously confirmed that it is holding back some stock of PS4 hardware to allow customers to walk into a store and buy one at launch.

Launch day stock of the console has officially been sold out for months, however, with retailers now taking orders for the second wave of units. The console is thought to have received over 1.5 million pre-orders.

PlayStation 4 goes on sale in North America this Friday, November 15, and in the UK on November 29.

Would usually of said try a supermarket but don't think you'll have much Joy as they do pre-orders now (Possibly Morrisons) But I think other than that your best bet will be Game or John Lewis.

If this happens here (which I hope it does because I didn't preorder thinking I couldn't afford it, but now have the money and REALLY hope I can walk into a store launch day to buy one) It's going to be really unfair on people who preordered a Playstation but have to wait for the second wave of stock.
