Keep the train rolling! I hope they can meet demand and make another batch of consoles after launch. Got my preorder the day after E3 so I'm all set. Crossing my fingers for an October release (a man can dream). I'm getting an Xbox too, but for now it's PLAYSTATION NATION!

Best selling overall, as of 2013...

PS4 doing well at #3...

@Skips

Looks like good ole Blighty is gonna be blue again.
Most(if not all) of my family & mates have come back over to Sony, 8 of us have pre-ordered PS4 from Game, there are 4 still on the fence, but I am sure peer presure will bring them over as well.

Viva Playstation!

abzdine1062d ago

PS4 is performing really well, and imagine what could happen when the Sony blockbusters are all announced!

scott1821061d ago

When more big games are announced it will get even better. I can't wait to see if there is a last of us 2 to be shown or possibly uncharted 4 (or both). I am also excited to see if there will be a new god of war. And that team ico game that I drool over every time I see it. It seems like there are a bunch of games that they are taking their time to show off.... I am excited to see them.

Not looking good for Microsoft, UK was one of the more xbox dominant countries too. I live in the UK and most of the people I know are picking up PS4 over the XBOne.

black0o1061d ago

@Anarki Ms strongest market after the US is UK x360 beat the wii like a month ago

if MS loses market to sony let us assume 50/50 that will be a big win for sony over ms since the rest of EU are PlayStation's territories

Cam9771061d ago (Edited 1061d ago )

@Skips
The Xbox One is at #35 and #79, holy smokes, the PS4 is going to dominate. The 12GB PS3 is ahead of it! Anything MS says about stock issues can't be true because Animal Crossing seems to be doing ok.

@ ABeastNamedTariq - just stick with the PS4 and forget buying an Xbox,,, just think about all the exclusive ps4 games you could buy with all that money,,

SignifiedSix911062d ago

That's the exact same reason I'm not buying a PS4.

PS3PWNSALL1061d ago

I'm gonna spend that money on Xbox One exclusives.

Clarence1062d ago

Yep UK was supposedly Xbox territory. Looks like its going different time around.

tigertron1062d ago

Yeah, the only real Xbox stronghold in Europe was the UK, but UK gamers tend to buy whatever console has the most games and is cheaper and at the time that was the 360 at the beginning, but I think a lot of UK gamers have felt let down by the Xbox One unveiling.

I think the PS4 will enjoy PS2 levels of success in the UK. That said, the PS3 has done well in the UK.

FriedGoat1061d ago

People also seem to forget most of the "TV" features of the Xbone don't even work outside of America.

AceofStaves1061d ago

@Fried Goat - Exactly. The bells and whistles of TV integration and the digital entertainment deals mean nothing outside the USA.

ps3_pwns1061d ago

they are selling to many ps4's psn and ps4 online is gonna be packed with people playing multilayer games online this holiday. you get the ps4 first becauase that's what consoles are all about getting one where everyone is gonna be getting and playing games on so the holidays can actually be fun instead of getting the xbox one which will have no one playing it online lol.

showtimefolks1061d ago

I say after gamescom ps4 is only gonna pick up more momentum in Europe

Got mine pre ordered already, everyone of my friends who had xbox360 are now switching to PS4

Godz Kastro1061d ago

Really? Same story here but vice versa... Crazy ain't it.

showtimefolks1061d ago

kastro

Yeh I wouldn't doubt it because each amer is different. What's making the difference for my friends is both consoles are due out around the same time to where ps3 came out a year later so Many switched to xbox360

The more gamers that buy a console the more support it will get software wise so bigger sales equal to more conten and Bette services/support

That's why I care also having bigger online communities for games hat are due at launch is also a big reason

Godz Kastro1061d ago

@showtime...

I can respect that brother. I might preorder a ps4 this Friday. I have my day 1 x1. I'm gonna be objective and buy both. What video formats does the ps3 support? I'm assuming ps4 will follow suit. I def do more than just play games hence my big interest in x1 plus their exclusives look sick.

Godz Kastro1061d ago

If you have your preorder y do you care if they churn out more?

Psn8001061d ago

That is me knackerred then I will have to wait because I got to get three Ps4's my daughter & my son & me my Girlfriend will have to share until I can afford it , have to wait .

Pre-order numbers are definitely in Sony's favor. Can sony completely win next gen hands down? I am not sure. but they surely have the momentum over Microsoft.

pedrof931062d ago

Why are you not trolling ?

friedricr1061d ago

Because he has seen the Dark. The Dark Side ;).

ANIALATOR1361062d ago

well thats really gonna help sell the system over here...

gaffyh1061d ago

I already pre-ordered mine from Amazon

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/...

I heard they were running low, looks like Sony is doing what Nintendo did with the Wii and reducing the supply to create more buzz, can't blame them really, it works!

GentlemenRUs1061d ago (Edited 1061d ago )

"I heard they were running low, looks like Sony is doing what Nintendo did with the Wii and reducing the supply to create more buzz, can't blame them really, it works!"

I don't think so, Just imagine how much consoles the factory's need to get made and out before the deadline!

One can only make so many in a time period.

THC CELL1062d ago

Got mine pre ordered and paid for at a independence retailer

WeAreLegion1062d ago

All independence retailers are in 'MERICUH!!!

Denethor_II1062d ago

Just because you paid for it doesn't mean you'll one hundred percent definitely get it. "Oh sorry something went wrong with your order. We're happy to refund you, or we'll be getting some more in next month if you want to wait. Sorry."

It happens mate.

Thehyph1062d ago

There are some things you just don't say, man. We know that's a possibility, but we don't talk about it.
Talk like that is why you're a steward and not the king.

Denethor_II1061d ago

THE RULE OF GONDOR IS MINE!

HugoDrax1061d ago

It better not happen at my GameStop on launch day for XB1 and PS4, or there will be a riot. I know for a fact I was #2 and #4 to pre order my XB1 and PS4 launch consoles. I be dammed if they tell me "Sorry sir, somehow something went wrong with your pre order"

devwan1062d ago

I think it's better to go with one of the retailers Sony links to on their site - much better chance of things going smoothly.

Fair enough supporting your local indie when buying games, but when it comes to day one consoles I'll stick with ShopTo or Amazon.

THC CELL1062d ago

I work for game in the UK, trust me I'm.not missing anything:-) the independence store ps4 is for sale if I get it. My store I.work for only allow me one console at a discount too

Koyes1061d ago

I've already paid the £348.98 with ShopTo for the PS4 so I hope my order is honoured more so than those who paid later

KillrateOmega1062d ago (Edited 1062d ago )

You know people are hyped about your console when you can't even meet the tidal wave of demands for it.
