Pre-orders for Sony's PlayStation 4 (PS4) console have seen 'unprecedented demand' according to a leading online retailer.
now that sony made the first move and what they have done with ps3 when it come to games and online made alot of ppl feel good about getting ps4 with out any sec thought because they know when it comes to games sony will always deliver just looking at 2013 so far it's been awesome for ps3 owners ni no kuni,sly cooper,god of war ascension,the last of us, beyond .etc
That's the only reason I'm buying a ps3.. For the games. I have a high end gaming pc that I love. It's just not going to have the games ps4 has. I am one of these people that want a preorder price now!
Ya me too. My soul purpose getting a PlayStation is for games. It's a bonus it does more. Everyone have smartphone and tables, that what they use most for net surfing and social network.
@shoddy You wrote 'soul' on purpose didn't you
I just signed up for gamestops "first to know" program for when they announce the PS4 is ready for pre-order. That said, I think the only and biggest disappointment from sony is not being able to keep up with demand at launch. I would be ok with this do as long as I was in line and I was still guaranteed a console soon after launched.
The most amazing thing about this is that it doesn't even have an official price and it's already in high demand
Same here. I want to preorder it as soon as possible. I would like to have one on the first day it's out but I refuse to stand in line for it. I did that for the PS3 and it was a horrible experience.
@ares If u pre-ordered a ps3, u didnt have to wait in line for it. U just go pick it up. Only line ur waiting was trying to get through the holiday shoppers to where the cashier is at.
@kreate I know, that is why I want to preorder it. The preorder of PS3 sold out everywhere in less than 20 minutes, I never got a chance to preorder it so I decided to wait in line. My advice; if you can't preorder it than don't stand in line for it. Wait untill it's available and you can buy it easily withiut waiting in line 2 days.
@ares Oh ic. That would of been horrible waiting in line. I got respect for ppl who waited in line for a ps3's launch. Cuz the line formed 3-4 days before the launch date.
Yeah it's been an exciting year so far... The announcement of PS4 and all the games I'm just now getting and playing on PS3.. Just finished Crysis 3 and now I'm playing God of War Ascension and then Bio-shock is around the corner.. -Great time to be a gamer -But with all that going on I'm still pumped for my PS4 titles, I would love if they would just release the price already... I'm ready to pre-order.. (Hell I even want to pre-order the system) I don't want to worry about getting one, so would be cool if Amazon would just start taking orders so I can lock it down for day-one delivery.. DAY_ONE PS4 Games 4 Me Are- Battlefield 4 Assassins Creed IV Black Flag Infamous Second Son DriveClub WatchDogs Killzone Shadow Fall -And So it begins- .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
yep ^exactly how i feel :p in terms of wanting amazon to start taking pre orders and sony to give us a price. This device is going to be hard to get hold of by xmas I reckon...
A man will get KZ day one and wait for WatchDogs and Infamous (if it's a launch title) for Christmas. A man will get Driveclub and AC when they drop in price.
U got the cash to buy the ps4 + all those games?
agree with those choices except assasins creed which never did anything for me, and BF4 which I'll be playing on PC (eventually) - much nicer on PC (BF3 already is and mouse/keyboard is vital for me). The rest though... day one... will reserve judgement on Infamous as again wasn't blown away with the previous games.
@ EbeneezerGoode yeah I wanted to do BF3 on my PC but for some reason I just end up doing work on my PC instead of Gaming.. Did play Crysis 2 on my PC but it was so hard for me to adjust back to mouse/keyboard I bought that Xbox PC controller and since My PC had to rev up so much just to play I just started playing on console and Leave my PC for work.. -But yeah I'm with you on everything, even infamous I was going to just wait - But then I remembered I had so much fun on 1 & 2 just playing for hours - at the very least it should be a long enjoyable campaign.. so for that reason I just added it to day one. @ kreate Of course... I thought the system was going to be much higher then what it looks like we are going to get... -so I put a $1000 dollars aside- which really is not that much money (I almost spent more then that for a new graphics card for my PC (the insane GTX 690) -But I was thinking nex gen was going to come in around $899 so at that price add an extra controller and I thought a $1000 was a safe bet.. So now it's looking like we will be well below that and more like $529-$599 so hell yeah I'm ready, that just means now If games come in around close to last gen as SONY guy said they would be no more then 10 dollars higher- $59-69 mark.. So I'm ready, and I can't wait...
Yeah. Let's see how well Microsoft does this gen without a developing/sales/advertisement year's head start. --12
What does Microsoft have to do with this?
Was replying to the initial comment of "Sony made the first move"
@EZZ "because they know when it comes to games sony will always deliver." Sorry I doubt that or anything you said actually. I'm pretty sure its because it has a 4 at the end of it and its just the next PlayStation. And most of all, its available for pre-order. The Wii U had the same stuff said about it last year. https://www.google.com/url?... https://www.google.com/url?... https://www.google.com/url?... etc, etc. Why was in "High demand" and "anticipated" because its simply new and it is Nintendo after all despite the main selling point being the tablet controller. And most of the games were third party line up along side Mario. It would be funny to change your words and say "Now that NINTENDO made the first move and what they have done with the Wii when it comes to games and the motion controller made allot of people feel good about getting a Wii U with out any sec thoughts because they know when it comes to games and innovation Nintendo will always deliver." Granted people had way more details about the Wii U at the time, VS little details about the PS4 it really comes down to just being available for pre-orders right now, realistically. Not what you said in particular.
you're right the same was said about wii u
No, the context doesn't fit quite as well when compared to the Wii and Wii-U. Wii had many casual gamers and they DIDN'T feel comfortable about the Wii-U because they lost interested in the Wii. Seeing what happened with it had a NEGATIVE effect on their interest in a new Wii. The people that WERE interested in Wii-U were the core gamers because of all the titles mentioned before launch but many got pushed back so they lost interest too. They sat waiting for more game announcements to warrant buying the system and the nintendo direct helped but all that hype was taken when Raymond got delayed and the PS4 was officially announced. PS3 has been showing an upward curve and people are still interested in it, unlike the wii, so the PS4 is much more "highly anticipated" because people are already seeing Sony do things they like and making games they want. There's a pretty big difference and the only things that would change that are: Sony having a small number of launch games Sony's launch games being delayed Sony's PS4 being delayed The next xbox being announced and showing something fantastic that steals the attention away.
you "doubt" that that is why this person wants a PS4? how is that? are you a mind reader? lol joking aside, that is actually exactly why I want a PS4, Sony really did deliver the goods this generation. They came up with awesome first party exclusives and I want a gaming system because I want to play games. I actually spend more time on netflix that anything else, but I mean netflix you can get on other devices as well. In other words, I buy PS4 for the exclusives.
The irony is nobody cares/cared about WiiU.
The same might have been said about the WiiU, but one thing is for sure.....the WiiU didn't deliver, and its obvious that its lack of power has made the WiiU less interesting to developers.
It'll be cool to get a new console that instantly has a high userbase to play along with as soon as it's out. There's so many pre-orders plus the rumor of them having 16 million available at launch. If that holds true or even anywhere near 8 million launch the PS4 will have an epic community day 1.
right sony fans hype up sony games then month or week before they release they don't even buy em.
like what ?! and what is your source ?!
PSASBR Ratchet and Clank Sly Cooper 4 Little Big Planet Karting PS Vita also been hype up to be better than 3DS to be the best handheld that will sell like crazy.
again what your source ?! for your sake i hope it's not vgcharts and also psvita is the best handheld ever made and i think you missed the news http://n4g.com/news/1207393...
Believe it or not people were and are actually excited about those games. Its no different than Nintendo fans getting excited about a Pikmin game (the original sold a million in its lifetime) and I'm not saying anything bad about either. Why does it bother people that others are pre ordering and excited about a console? edited spelling
I´m waiting for the price, its the only PS4-spec that is missing missing right now
This article is hilarious. A lot of, "we were told" and "they said" from a company that's only been around for 7 years!!! This is not news, this is dumb. It would be another story if this was coming from game stop, but it's not. It's coming from a website that wasn't around for any other game console pre-order. lol.
this is the reason: PSone 1994 Ps2 2000 Ps3 2006 Ps4 2014 people are hungry to play NEXT GEN!
2014? Don't you mean 2013?
november 2013 is very close to 2014,and we even don't know if this is final release date
2014 in Europe
Except most of their consoles have launched late in the year (with the exception of the PS2). In response to you second comment
PSOne was September 1995. Also, if you're listing PS4 as 2014, you may as well list everything else a year later. They also came out at the end of the year. October for PS2 and November for PS3. But if you notice something, from PSOne to PS2 it's five years, PS2 to PS3 is six years, and PS3 to PS4 is seven years. So next Playstation console will be out in eight years?
I'm still waiting for retail stores to let me pre order here in the USA. I wonder what models they'll make?
I hope for a 5 and a 10 terabyte model. Especially with them pushing digital a huge hard drive.
ppl r just preordering what they want. PS4 apparently is what they want. Period. Game on.
"It’s been the most successful console pre-order to date in our seven year history." and theres still many months until it releases. This is gonna be HUGE.
How many consoles have released in those 7 years?
Wii U and.....
Even if they started before the PS3 and Wii launched, being a new site they probably didn't get much for pre-orders, if they even offered them.
So yeah, pretty much a meaningless statement.
Various psp iterations, DSI, DSI XL, 3DS, DSXL, slim ps3, slim xbox, even slimmer ps3,ps vita, 3DSXL and wii u, plus they could be counting the new bundles and different colours of old models released.
@extermin8or Obviously handhelds and redesigns are not going to get anywhere near the attention of a new home console system. So I'll stand by my point, saying the PS4 is getting more pre-orders than any of those others is a meaningless statement. It SHOULD be getting more pre-orders than those.
i agree with dumahim, this is really the only console besides the wii u that has been/being released. reiterations of existing consoles dont count. this article is basically a big circle jerk for fanboys.
Clearly, not showing the actual console was a fatal mistake for Sony.
you clearly did not read the article. "veery fatal"
Where did your comment come from? People are preordering like mad without a price or ever even seeing the thing. I already forgot i didnt see it yet until you just mentioned it. Thats how much i could care less what it looks like. If you really wanna know what its gonna look like ill tell you. Gonna be black, rectangular, some usb ports in front and a internal disk drive in the front. Who gives a shit what it looks like.
it all depends on the price, most people wont pay more than $300 for a console. Its something that can only play games and the games are expensive. If they can manage to launch near the $300 mark it will fly off the shelves.
But every playstation had been able to play more than games.. .
not a whole lot really, you can play videos and a couple of other random things. Nothing overly useful. iPads can sell for $400-$500 because they are actually useful devices.
Most people who preorder for day 1 delivery WILL pay more than $300. I certainly will. Paid $600 for my PS3 and will do it again for PS4 - although it likely will not be that much. Two PS4 models $399 and $499.
What exactly can an ipad do that a ps3 cant (besides make calls)
So the ps3 didn't play music? Have a web browser? Skype? Online community via PSN? Hmm glad you know more than anyone else.. Multimedia is a very important aspect of playstation consoles. It's funny because people pay thousands of dollars for a big led flat screen smart tv whenever a 32" does all of the same things for a fraction of the price.. So your illustration is rather invalid..
Shopto.net? I lived in the UK before and I'd never head of them. Anyone knows anything about them?
Here's a link to a review aggregate site for them http://www.trustpilot.com/r... They're a pretty big website, online retailer of the year 2012, apparently, but this isn't what you wanted to hear right? You wanted them to appear as less influential and thus downplay the positive Sony news that this article offers right? Sorry to disappoint you, keep trying though. BTW the disagree ratio you have despite just asking an 'innocent' question is testimony to how obvious your stealth trolling attempts really are.
Stealth trolling? LOL, you people are so sensitive. I've been to Tesco, Comet, Woolworth, Argos, ASDA, and of course Games.co.uk when I was living in Truro, Cornwall 6 years back but I have never heard of this place so I was just asking the question when I read the article. How is that trolling? But, whatever..LOL. smh @faysal, thanks for the info. Appreciate the help.
@SDF the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.
"Stealth trolling? LOL, you people are so sensitive." Perhaps your comment history might have something to do with that. Just a thought.
well you missed out on great deals from shopto.net since you didnt know them. been using them for 1 year now. great prices and service. they usually have best prices around for anything out and they have sell on relatively new games every week.
simplygames.co.uk are their only competition on price- both have pretty much the same free deliver timeings.
I live in Australia and have heard of them. Apparently they are the best at delivering gaming products on time. (Generally the day before release).
People nees to wake up. 300.00 fo the ps4 will not happen. I predict between 400-500and thats fine with me. I got that covered easy and i cant wait for preorders to open in the us
300£ is perfect. i want my ps4 at 4000 NOK.
449 or lower would make me extremely happy, but I would also buy it for 499.
I have no doubt that the anticipation for PS4 is high, but the current statistics Shopto.net providing does not accurately represent the demand, because as far as I know they are the only place that take pre-orders now (Amazon's page is not exactly a pre-order page) so that will inflate their results to be compared to previous console launches (in their 7 year history) where the console might be pre-ordered elsewhere.
Is EB games taking pre orders yet??? cause damn... I am waiting.
No. I was told yesterday that they won't take preorders until they get an SKU and price for them. Probably looking at sometime around E3, unless MS comes out and announces their system and price before then, in which case Sony may release that info.
