LOS ANGELES—Sony Corp. is raising internal sales projections for the forthcoming PlayStation 4 videogame console amid positive signs about demand for the device, executives of the Japanese electronics company said Tuesday.
Thats what happens when you treat your customers with respect.
Take notes EA!
EA have just announced Battlefront, they need to take no notes.
take notes ms
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.
I hope so. The PS2 is one of the greatest gaming consoles to be released.
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)
I just ordered 7 games from Future shop at $40 each so I'll not be short of games to play for a while.
we really want the ps2 era back... play hard for unlocks, dont pay hard
It's a good lesson for any company.
Well deserved. PS4 is the future of gaming.
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.
LOGIC has won! :)
This is crazy,PS4 gonna sell like Hotcakes http://swiftor.com/attachme... http://img.gawkerassets.com...
PS4 is gonna be the big seller for Christmas I can see it already oh also Black Friday is gonna be a sh*t show haha
Made my pre-order just before Amazon US ran out of the "launch" ps4s lol
I love these they're awesome! The internet needs more of Kaz.
Got mine preordered, and I'm excited. Very happy for them, they deserve it
The PlayStation Nation is in Celebration :)
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.
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*
Id be shocked if this didnt happen! It would solidify Sony's edge this console generation.
Hmm, might make sense for real. I held out on the vita but a combo might just break me..:)
^^And you KNOW Sony I'll throw in a year of Plus in that bundle too :-)
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.
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.
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.....
Sony has not announced the release date Dec is a placeholder....
@hazardman You are an enabler. Thanks for screwing the rest of us.
@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!
Yep, don't wait. Pre-order now. At $399, the demand this holiday is going to be insane.
Do you have to sign up to read this news? Looks like it as I see nothing but a log in pop up.
I hope they reduce the price of ps3 to 200$ (250gb) this summer.
$200 I think that's more than unlikely considering that's less than the price of the PS3 GTA V bundle.
They will drop the price and do a grand turismo 6 bundle for sure. So maybe they wait for then?
Am I smelling another generation of PlayStation Domination like the PS1 and PS2?!?!?!?!?!?!?
All indications points to yes https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.a...
the demand and positivity surrounding the PS4 reminds me of the PS2 awesome to see Sony and the PS brand back to their best.
Already pre ordered mine:) I hope Sony and ofcourse Nintendo will survive this gen. I think those two should co exist. ( IMO i always have a sony and nintendo console under my tv)
Yup already got 4 of my friends that only play on 360 to pre order ps4
Kaz Hirai salutes you
Holy smokes....didn't they predict 13 million for end of fiscal year?
PS4...the PS2 reborn! Let your reign bring many years of games and happiness for gamers.
Pre-ordered. There's little reason not to support this one.
Also Sony's stock has almost doubled since the turn of the year despite talks of the breakup of the company's divisions.
I bought at the bottom. *Kaz laugh
Like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, Sony is making the comeback to the prominence they once obtained when they led the industry. Where gaming didn't nickle & dime the gamer with stupid sh*t!
They deserve all the success the future brings them. They fought for our rights as consumers and gamers.
with reactions like these http://www.youtube.com/watc... why wouldn't they? Also just look at whats happening around retail after the above... http://www.computerandvideo... and http://www.bubblews.com/new... Yeah ill say it makes a ton of sense.
time to buy some stocks......or PS4
