PS4 is proving to be quite the popular console in European markets. It has been revealed via Amazon Germany that preorders placed after September 30th will receive their consoles sometime in January 2014.
Sony had earlier revealed that they had more than 1 million preorders worldwide and UK was a major contributor, and it seems the other European regions aren’t doing that shabby either.
Here’s what their description reads (translated):
All pre-orders after 30th September 2013, are expected until after Christmas, but delivered no later than the end of January 2014. Customers with a delivery address in Germany, up to and including the 5th August 2013 have pre-ordered, the PS4 will receive on the release date. Pre-orders that between the 6th August 2013 and 30 September, 2013 is to be delivered as soon as possible depending on availability before Christmas.
The situation is same in Gamestop Germany as well and PS4 preorders after September 30th will get their consoles in Jan 2014.
Update: More reports are coming in that the situation is same in France as well with retailer Micromania also mentioning a January 2014 delivery period.
