The headset is carrying immense hype since the price announcement
By Jawwad Iqbal
Sony Corp.’s (NYSE:SNE) PlayStation VR headset bundle was finally made available for preorder on Amazon but to the surprise and unfortunate luck of many, the preorder button didn’t even see the light of the day for five minutes. As spotted by Release.com, the headset sold out within four minutes of availability, which is insane.
Even though it was previously announced as to exactly when the preorders would open up and we had assumed as much that the headset would sell out quickly, but four minutes? That’s breaking expectations. PlayStation VR’s launch day shipments also sold pretty quickly at EB Games Australia, soon after preorders opened up.
