Holy crap every single multiplat except CoD is the PS4 SKU. Talk about a role reversal. Cheaper system, more power, better multiplats. What's not to like?

I wonder how many of the people who ordered the Xbone changed their mind after the Sony E3 conference.
Surprised to see FIFA on that list for the PS4, after all the deals between MS and EA

We may have another market takeover like the PS2 days. PS4 is dominating the charts right now. Can't wait to get my PS4 with KZsf and Knack.

Edit: I also forgot that I get drive club with PS+ at release. PS4 is full of win.

I'm not going to lie. I was one of those people. I had an XBOX ONE in my cart at Amazon because I love me some Forza. My wife was like go ahead, you bought consoles in the past for one game. I said, "no, let's see if Sony implements any of these restrictions and their policies are concerning DRM. If they have them then maybe I will say the heck with it and get both or even possibly get neither."

As soon as Jack Trentton made the announcement no restrictions, no drm? I removed the X1 from my cart and put 1 PS4 in it's place and ordered a 2nd under my wives Amazon account.

If Sony can go next gen without any of these restrictions or DRM, so can MS. If not, I'm a one console owner next gen for the first time since gaming's inception. <- That's how long I've been gaming.

I felt like my team won the Super Bowl when Jack announced NO DRM, NO Online verifications of any kind. Obtain your games how you choose and do with them what you choose.

I preordered my PS4 from amazon with; inFamous Second Sons, Killzone Shadow Fall, FIFA14, Battlefield 4, CoD Ghosts, Assassin's Creed IV, Need for Speed Rivals, Knack and Watch Dogs.

Can't wait for them to arrive.
abzdine  +   476d ago
@Ares84HU

could you please pre-order an extra game or two for me? maybe other people too? :D

Good job man, i'll be getting Killzone and Knack for sure and Drive Club will be offered with PS+.
But i still need to get Beyond and GT6 :D
oh GOD, i forgot Killzone: Mercenaries...

Greatness awaits

I purchased the ps4 today to make sure I get one once it releases. $427.99 with tax.
Also bought a copy of last of us.
CJDUNCAN  +   476d ago
I still went ahead with my preorder of the X1 only because my brother already preordered PS4.

X1 has the better exclusives that are geared towards what I like and just the familiarity with the controller is a plus as well.

As for the restrictions though I don't really mind as I don't trade games in anymore. The intrusive Kinect though, I definitely will have to see how to combat that.
mikeslemonade  +   476d ago
It's free to pre-order. You don't have to necessarily have the money now so I went ahead and preordered the PS4.
guitarded77  +   476d ago
I pre-ordered from GameStop. I love Amazon, but for console launches I want to be able to pick it up immediately and not wait for UPS.
Boody-Bandit  +   477d ago
The more people learn about the restrictions MS is implementing with the XBOX ONE, the wider the lead will grow. All the marketing in the world can't spin what they are trying to pull on consumers. MS has only one real option, drop the restrictions and do away with DRM any way they can.

yep no one should purchse or even touch that system untill there is no drm and used games are allowed. im gonna fight xbox one this whole generation furiously untill they get rid of them dumb restrictions. sorry in advance to many but this is war on gamers this aint about console vs console its console vs gamers.
DevilishSix  +   476d ago
That still won't work as they have taken damage to their reputation. If they remove restrictions gamers still won't trust them, because we know what they were trying to do.
G20WLY  +   476d ago
...And drop that price! WTF is that price about?!
irepbtown  +   476d ago
Casual gamers will not pay £429.99 or $499.99, that's just the truth. Why did Nintendo Wii sell like crazy? Because it was cheap...

If MS is targeting Casual gamer's they need to lower the price to under £200 which won't happen. They're losing the Hardcore gamers because of the restrictions.

What on Earth are they doing?
Beast_Master  +   476d ago
The thing with the price that alot of folks are missing is that the Xbox one will come with the Kinect and the PS4 will not have the camera in box. The new PS eye will be separate from the packaged system.

I think MS is too far into development right now to change their stratagy involving kinect in every box. So that is the reason why Xbox is 100.00 more and why it will probably stay that way till early adopters finish buying up the first round of consoles.

Hmm
@iron883, how much did you have to put down? I pre ordered the ps4 at GameStop today, I had to put down $100. The kid didn't even know that gs has online bundles. Also if u pre order at GameStop make sure to ask if its day one. The kid told me they only got 10 Xbox and plenty of ps4's. he said they still take pre orders even if they don't have enough. You'll just have to wait to get the system. Glad they still had day one ps4's.
NumOnePS3FanBoy  +   477d ago
Don't forget that we (playstation) have better exclusives. Any PS know that we are covered in that department and don't have to worry because we are still getting new ones on our ps3's
dillydadally  +   476d ago
Hmmm... CoD is the only multiplat game that has more Xbox One fans... I wonder why?
ExtoVert  +   476d ago
ya thats seems to be true, a large amount of 360 players only play COD, I asked my friend "why do you pay $50/yr just for one game and not use any other feature?" Anwser: "because of time exclusive "......so he spends over $200/yr and only plays cod on the 360 -__- mmmmm yaa no thanks cod is dead to me

I wonder why Amazon has a launch edition PS4? I don't see that the have included anything in themselves and maybe they know something we don't?
bicfitness  +   476d ago
Still can't order off Amazon in Canada. Might have to hit up a Best Buy or Gamestop, God forbid, to make sure I get one at launch.
Toon_Link  +   476d ago
In another thread a n4g member said that the launch edition guarantees the console on launch day if you choose 2day shipping. The standard edition are the second wave of shipments so you might still get on launch or you could have to possibly wait 2-7 days to recieve.
KwietStorm  +   476d ago
I noticed that and asked Sony about it. No response yet, but I also noticed my preorder was automatically changed to the launch edition.

you think this is great wait for world wide sales chart once its released, what people seem to forget is ps3 was $599 yet still outsold xbox360 from day one because PS brand s very strong in europe and japan, but what's great for sony is now the US market seems to be shifting back to PS brand too

my most awaited game is the one from Ready At Dawn studios

TKCMuzzer  +   477d ago
Amazon's pre orders are not a binding contract. You can cancel at any time, it's always good to get your name down in case of shortages which if things carry on could be a reality.

I pre ordered at Amazon but if a better one comes around I will just cancel it. In fact I have pre ordered from two separate places just as a fail safe, I will just cancel one nearer the time.
sourav93  +   477d ago
Haha I had mine pre-ordered when amazon had the price at £599. I had faith in Sony and knew they couldn't charge THAT much. I can't wait for November/December. Greatness Awaits.

You guys should check your gamestop stores :) The majority of them are only taking up to 8 Xbox One preorder and up to 62 pre-order for the PS4 base on my gamestop and from what I gather from neogaf.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   477d ago
Xbone supply is super low.Only 6 at my GS while PS4 had over 20 in reserve.

MS looks to be having supply issues.
kingPoS  +   477d ago
I think it might have to do with the esram yeilds.

6 Xbox and 20 PS4 at my store too. Seems those yield rumors were true, wonder if we're in for another mass death of xboxes.
sourav93  +   477d ago
It's a ploy. By providing a low supply, MS can say that stores were sold out within a week, whereas PS4s were still in stock.

this pre-order argument over which console is ahead is starting to get silly now, not only is it irrelevant it doesn't mean anything. only difference is that now people can see what the ps4 looks like.

I agree. Remember when it was said that the wii u had record breaking pre orders? Not much came after that.

@ Black for my preorder and I imagine thousands of others it was confirmation that sony isnt doing an x bone nonsense and industry breaking measures.

ordered mine immediately after the conference and am still happy about my choice.

i don't give a gorrilas danglies what it looks like.
Blackdeath_663  +   477d ago
the sony conference convinced me to buy the ps4 much earlier than i had originally planned maybe in the first few months not in the first year as i was going to. i don't think it's smart to pre-order stuff but each to their own
MRMagoo123  +   476d ago
If it wasnt for us fans that get the systems launch day you probably wouldnt have any consoles to buy so i dont think its that smart to wait really. Well maybe its smart to wait if you where after something from MS but sony dont have that kind of problem.

rainslacker  +   477d ago
Same here. Almost had a heart attack when I saw the standard edition wasn't guaranteed for launch day delivery, just on a supply/demand basis. Thought Sony might be doing a special box like Xbox First day thing. They only had one option last night.

Luckily when I click the now unavailable launch edition button, it says I already ordered it, even though it just says PS4 in my cart.

Glad I did that, because none of my local gamestops have it available anymore.:( Although I guess you could get Best Buy ship to store option for day 1 pick up.

TwinDad  +   476d ago
So they made two different versions, standard and launch, to make sure people are aware if they are getting it on launch day?
rainslacker  +   476d ago
The Launch version on Amazons page is for the first batch they get in. If you ordered that they say you're guaranteed to get one launch day(if you get two day shipping).

The Standard version is for anything they get in after that initial batch. Says you may get it launch day, but comes down to a first come first serve basis on availability. Mostly just a waiting list. Guess it depends on if they can secure more allotment before launch day.

Both versions are the same SKU of the PS4 though.

You can see which one you got by looking at the PS4 product page, and clicking the buttons between the launch and standard. The one you ordered will have a yellow alert bar across the top saying you already ordered that item.
TwinDad  +   476d ago
@Rainslacker,

Thank you for the clarification. Looks like I was in the Launch Edition crowd.

I had not been to the PS4 page on Amazon since I pre-ordered Monday night @9pm, and was puzzled at first by the two editions.

Uk is suppose to be were the Xbox dominates. Sony about to take over the new gen. It's inevitable.
Karpetburnz  +   477d ago
Playstation is obviously still a more popular brand than Xbox worldwide, the only reason why Xbox was ahead of playstation for most of last generation is because it was much much cheaper, released 1 year earlier and provided 90% of the same games, yet PS3 still managed to catch up in sales.

This time Playstation is releasing at around the same time as Xbox, its gonna be much cheaper, more powerful and with no DRM. Playstation will dominate.

I also find it pretty funny how games like Battlefield 4 and Fifa 14 were shown off by Microsoft and have timed exclusive DLC for Xbox, yet the preorders for both those games on PS4 are still higher lol, looks like those exclusive deals for Microsoft aren't helping them to much.

Thats the main thing a lot of ppl got the 360 because it was out earlier ppl just didnt wanna wait for next gen, this time its even stevens on release day pretty much give or take a month maybe, hopefully sony releases first or the same time and then the xbox fans will actually see how popular sony really is.

I've never pre-ordered a console and had decided to just wait and give the new consoles some time to establish themselves before picking one up. All that changed after Sonys conference. As soon as Amazon started taking pre-orders for the PS4 I jumped on it. The enthusiasm for Sony is contagious and it's how they are approaching gamers is what won me over. It's going to be a great generation for the consoles and perhaps in a year or two I'll pick up an Xbone if or when they figure out the customer does actually matter.
