It was clear that stock for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was always going to be hard to find. With a lot of gamers that necessarily wouldn’t pick up many new releases or have never even owned a PS4 before (we’ve heard a lot of reports of people picking up a PS4 along with their copy of Crash), but stock has mostly sold out today, if not yesterday.
I did some digging today across Metro Melbourne stores, Metro Sydney stores and retailers online and stock was almost non-existent or limited (which we found meant that they’d just sold through their last few copies.
We went into Highpoint Shopping centre which is near Melbourne CBD. Despite Target, Big W and JB Hi-Fi all having a dedicated row for the game, all three retailers had SOLD OUT signs with no visible idea of when they’d have stock in again.
