The preorders for the PlayStation VR just officially went live on Tuesday and by all accounts, sales were brisk. Amazon and Walmart were said to have sold out in a matter of minutes and while there were some other stores that had a few available for purchase hours after the launch, it’s a safe bet those won’t last long. According to GAME CEO Martyn Gibbs those who weren’t in the front of the line for the device are probably not going to be able to get VR device anytime soon.

In fact, according to Videogamer.com he said there’s very little chance there will be a ton of devices available on the actual launch date, let alone the preorder date. Gibbs said that there won’t be the same number of VR devices available as there were for the Xbox Ones and PS4s.

“We are very well adverse to dealing with products in high demand and low stock, and we would assume that virtual reality will fall into that category,” he said. “So I don’t think you should assume that there will be millions of units available from day one, and if you want one I would get one quick, because we’re seeing some trajectory of stock input into the market will be as fast as they can be manufactured. But you’re not going to see a build like Xbox One and PS4. There just won’t be the stock available.” The Oculus Rift is the first of the VR devices to launch. The HTC Vive will follow shortly after and the PlayStation VR will launch in October. We’ll be able to see just how accurate Gibbs is over the next few months.
