PlayStation 4 pre-orders are flying out the door and retailers like Amazon already have a depleted supply. Did Sony underestimate the PS4's popularity?
Both Gamestops near me,plus the 4 wal marts around me have all been sold out.They're trying to see if they can get more pre orders.
Didnt the slim do the same thing
Remember the 16 million PS4 units for 2013? https://www.google.ca/webhp... It better be true
I think Microsoft's dun goofing had a major influence in it too.
Not even sony expected microsoft to f*ck up the next xbox so badly LOL
I bet Sony thought they were gonna have a hard time dealing with Microsoft next gen
Certainly happy I preordered the second the conference ended. I hit "refresh" on its Amazon page as soon as the show was over.
The question should be like this " Did Microsoft Underestimate PS4 Demand " ? Yes .
They never expected MS to mess up as badly as they did. No one did.
Dang... I won't be getting my PS4 this year anyway.
This may actually be the first time in gaming history that the generation leader got their before launch by default. That's how epic this MS mess is. It's like watching a car wreck that never comes to a stop. It's like the Final Destination movies that just keep going and going and going. Everyday there are 2-3 new stories about MS royally effing something up. How is this possible that it got so awful? It's surreal.
Nope i think Microsoft just over estimated themselves
Not the worst problem to have as a company.
As the owner of a PS3 and 360, I had experienced enough from Sony and Microsoft to have decided years ago that I would be buying a PS4 first next generation. It's Sony's exclusives that swayed that decision (and psplus), and it was made years ago. That is the opposite of what I did this gen, which was to purchase my 360 first, PS3 later. But I had no inclination that Microsoft would f up so badly, to the point I've made the decision I can't support them at all any longer. I love gaming, and the more games the better. I'm sure there are a few titles from Microsoft I will miss, but the shit tonnage of hoops they are requiring gamers to jump through just to access their own content means I will never bring one into my home. As I said, my decision to purchase a PS4 first was already made, Microsoft just made it very easy to shun them completely. They no longer exist for me. Never thought that was a possibility a few months ago.
