Thats what happens when you treat your customers with respect.

EA have just announced Battlefront, they need to take no notes.

EA reminds me of Alzheimers disease. One day, they S**t on their consumers, the next day they announce release a good game. only to make consumers forget about their evil business decisions. then the cycle repeats itself again.

they are too big to fail.

On a side note, back to the topic, this is what happens when you give the gamers what they want.

Just preordered mine. Only place I could do it was Gamestop. Everywhere else: Futureshop, Best Buy, etc. was sold out.

And it also helps Sony's situation that their direct competitor made an expensive, clusterfuck of a console with hardly any redeeming qualities except Halo (if you even like that, which I'm not alone in not caring about).

Edit: Oh, and anecdotal, but when I was in GS THREE more people came in and ordered PS4s!!! Girl that helped me said she was 'doing this all day'. If the momentum keeps up, we could be witnessing the birth of the "new" PS2.

chrispseuphoria1109d ago

I hope so. The PS2 is one of the greatest gaming consoles to be released.

bratman1109d ago

Futureshop online doing a great promotion.. preorder 3 games for ps4 get each one for 39.99 (:

(also works with ps3, vita, 360, xbox one games)

kneon1109d ago

I just ordered 7 games from Future shop at $40 each so I'll not be short of games to play for a while.

SheenuTheLegend1109d ago

Well deserved. PS4 is the future of gaming.

wastedcells1109d ago

Knew this would happen so I pre ordered right away. Can't wait for confirmed launch day games and an actual launch date. Early November would be smart.

AznGaara1109d ago

Made my pre-order just before Amazon US ran out of the "launch" ps4s lol

flipflopfacts1109d ago

I love these they're awesome! The internet needs more of Kaz.

Relientk771109d ago

Got mine preordered, and I'm excited.

Very happy for them, they deserve it

The PlayStation Nation is in Celebration :)

LOGICWINS1109d ago (Edited 1109d ago )

Really hoping Sony announces a PS4/Vita bundle at Gamescom. Thats what Im holding out for. It would coincide with a Vita price drop to keep the price of the bundle under $600. Id imagine that bundle to be $500. This would be a direct spit in the face to a $500 standalone Xbox One.

Sanquine901109d ago

Hahaha, that would be awesome! We announce a price drop for vita. And above that we have a new PS4 SKU to announce. Ps4 and vita for just $499 *PS* No DRM and no Online requirement*

LOGICWINS1109d ago

Id be shocked if this didnt happen! It would solidify Sony's edge this console generation.

Why o why1109d ago

Hmm, might make sense for real. I held out on the vita but a combo might just break me..:)

LOGICWINS1109d ago

^^And you KNOW Sony I'll throw in a year of Plus in that bundle too :-)

AceofStaves1109d ago

That would be great. I'd also really like it if Sony dropped the price on Vita memory cards. I've been enjoying the Minis games a lot and need some extra space.

I'm happy to have got mine pre-ordered on Amazon.

Foxgod1109d ago

Next gen is going to be bigger then the current one, that or the economy isnt so bad as we think.
Considering that both Sony and MS their sales surpass expectations.

hazardman1109d ago

Regardless of what fanboys think of either console. Both Sony and MS are doing well! I preordered both Im very excited for both consoles. Hey man all i know is i cant wait for next gen..Nov XBOne then(correct me if im wrong)PS4 in Dec.....Im Tony the Tiger right now man.....

R_aVe_N1109d ago

Sony has not announced the release date Dec is a placeholder....

WeAreLegion1109d ago

@hazardman

You are an enabler. Thanks for screwing the rest of us.

hazardman1109d ago

@legion

Who are you? So im an enabler, because i like gaming and i support multiple systems. To each his own man. Im not worrying myself of what fanboy gamers have to say....all i know is im gonna enjoy some great games next gen on my PS4 and Xbox One!
