People like hotcakes, and people like PlayStation VR.
During GameStop’s financial conference call for the second quarter of fiscal year 2016, the retailer revealing it ran out of allocation “literally in five minutes,”, saying the hardware was the “quickest sellout in GameStop’s history.” According to GameStop there is “tremendous demand” and Sony is taking virtual reality “very seriously, as a very meaningful driver.”
That being said the retailer also revealed that it is expecting “very limited” quantities for PlayStation VR during the fall season.
This figure is kinda misleading — at least I imagine. The PlayStation VR sold out so quickly, because there weren’t that many on offer, as Sony was expecting a modest demand. That being said, when hardware is sold out, it often makes people who don’t have it want it even more,which for obvious reasons could bode well for PSVR.
