While pre-orders in North America and Europe is all ready breaking records at retailers such as Amazon, Target, Walmart, Best Buy and GameStop it was announced today by Sony that pre-orders have now also started in the Middle East.
Global domination. It really makes a difference with their no region lock, nothing but fruitful things comes out of it
They also allowed pre-orders in India, not sure what's going on but I thought it's worth mentioning. Perhaps it will be a global launch, if what Shuhei Yoshida said is to be believed then this will be the biggest launch for PlayStation.
this "GeekayGames" store chain is jacking up the prices across the board $450 for the standalone console and $80 per-game, yes $80 per-game. thank God for "region free" and Amazone.
Well I think it has something to do with price... A.K.A. the production cost. It must be low enough to where they can produce 10% more as each console sold reaches a 1,000 mark. As well as the QA yields are high enough to allow this. Basically... The PS4 launch will probably be the best launch we have ever seen.
I wouldn't know. I preordered an X1.
Gamescom for some new exclusives and a precise release date! i cannot wait but i can feel it's gonna be insane!! And since it's in middle east i must say : شكرا (google translate to arabic)
haha, Your welcome... on behalf of Sony لا شكر على واجب
@US8F: did Kaz say that? http://i.minus.com/iGWmICvP...
@abzdine nope , just wanted to show off my middle eastern skills. One of the funniest Kaz gifs I have seen, haha
google translate isnt going to translate لا شكر على واجب correctly. لا شكر على واجب = No need for thanks when it is that persons duty to do so. Makes more sense now :P
Lol, you got me.
It's been announced so far to launch in 2013 in the USA, Europe, Middle East, India & Brazil. Expect a Japan release announcement for this year at the Sony event just before TGS. It seems Sony really is on track for a worldwide launch this year.
is that kaz at the end . http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Sony have had this bitch in warehouse since February...bloody knew it.
thank you sony!
Thank you so much sony!!!/muchas gracias sony!!!
Sounds like production is going well.......lol
Yes . . here in middle east we are very excited for PS4 go Sony FTW . . for me i will get both but first i will get PS4 of course
Hurry up Sony! I want one now!
Here sony take my $$$$$$$$$$
Im from the middle east, wont need to pre order ill get it from a local Sony outlet because I wont make the same mistake of not getting a year warranty like with the ps3 or 360, cant trust new hardware. PlayStation is the go to brand here and after the xbox announcements more so then ever. Although I think a lot of people will get both. Xbox one!? MAYBE after I get the PS4 thats a BIG maybe too. Too many damn restrictions and I dont care if they fixed them, I dont wont to get a headache next gen and the PS4 is looking like a Panadol pill right about now...
that would be HUGE
Holly crap, Sony if this is true. Blizzard was right about the world domination thing.
Nah, but Wesker was right about complete global saturation lol lol i kid
taking into account how small the install base actually is, playstation already dominates in the middle eastern regions. xbox has almost no presence there. i know its a little off topic but its just to give you guys an idea.
Its not as small as you think it is and the install base is only growing.
Sony isn't kidding around, they are dead serious about returning to the video game throne like they did with the PS2.....take no prisoners, convert them to the PS4.
I'd love it if Sony would be able to release worldwide in as many regions as possible by end of 2013. That way more sales could be made, which would result in faster support and more games to be made, as well having more people being able to enjoy and play online with. Another reason is if Sony is able to produce that many PS4 for such a large scale worldwide release, that means Sony is very confident in their manufacturing of the PS4, which could mean better build quality with low percentage of defective units.
بكم في السعودية يا شباب ؟ 2000 ريال؟
هيه, شي جي, في الإمارات تقريبا نفس السعر بس بروحه قول يمكن 1699 Check geekayGames, but it's more expensive.
Now the ps4 will also come out in india http://www.vg247.com/2013/0...
I think the launch is closer than we think..
I hope so!
Say it isn't so! I would love it if they said hey guys its going to be released on September 20th! Come get some! If that is the case, I would be so happy that I would let you slap me in the face and call me Mary!
Let the games begin
This, more than any other reason, is why I think Sony will dominate this console generation. They're committed to getting the console in the hands of more gamers worldwide than Microsoft is, and that is winning them a lot of good will amongst the world gaming community. Specifically, Microsoft taking their time on the Asian market is a HUGE mistake. By the time they get to Japan, Sony will already be firmly rooted there as the console of choice, and South Korea, with their love for online gaming, would have been a ripe market to tap if they had taken the initiative, which Sony has. All the countries they're leaving out in Europe will by default go to Sony, too. It's kind of like a real-life version of Syndicate, if you think about it.
