GamesIndustry.Biz is reporting that the UK retail chain GAME has stopped taking pre-orders for the PSP, though they will take orders for the "second shipment" of the system. The PSP is set to be released the first of September. Since everyone loves a good story about selling out of consoles before their launch, the compamy made a statement:
"ATTENTION: We have run out of our initial allocation of Sony PSPs but are continuing to take orders for our next batch – expected sometime in September," says the statement. "As the UK's leading gaming specialist you have the best chance of securing one through us, so pre-order now to secure yourself a place in the queue. Please be aware that if you have already ordered your console from us before 4pm on August 5th 2005, rest assured that you will receive your PSP for release day,"
