Sony’s factories are “going to be running flat out” to manufacture enough PlayStation 4 hardware to meet demand, Sony Europe boss Jim Ryan has said.
what a beautiful thing.
And each and every Console made is like a little Child of Kaz looking for a loving home!
I hope the hard workers are getting extra salory. From working on production myself i've been experiencing some nasty stress and it can have a big toll on the body. Hopefully they get some extra cash. My PS4 is already booked. =) The main thing i'm looking forward to is down the line when Last of Us sequel comes to PS4.
aCasualGamer As a fellow former production worker I totally agree!!!! Well Said!!!
So long as it doesn't affect the quality of the units produced in an attempt to make up the numbers, this is good news.
As a current production worker losing his job soon, and probably going to find another production job (until I finish school). God damn right pay them more!!!
acasualgamer...they should all get a ps4 each for helping me get my ps4
@scott182 That sucks, hope you find a better job.
Wtf? Lmaooooooo. Heres a bubble. Lolz
Ha ha ha! My sentiments exactly, lol. In old wise tales, storks delivered babies to expecting parents! But your comment made me envision Kaz with wings, delivering expecting gamer their PS4's.
If every PS3 gamer pre-ordered the PS4, they wouldn't have been able to meet the demand. Luckily for them, I haven't pre-ordered mine yet. Waiting till Gaikai gets released!
PS4 The Lord of the Consoles: The Return of the King! :-)
of kaz and ken hes the father of PlayStation.
"And each and every Console made is like a little Child of Kaz looking for a loving home!" more like made BY a little child....lol
Well these mofos better hurry it up and get enough done to fulfill each and every single preorder plus be able to stock the hell out of the stores, not to mention Xmas to Oh and p.s. dont mess up to quality of the system in your rush to get the numbers
Though don't rush MY PS4, I don't want it to break on me!!!
Dude just stfu now. Oh my god that made me want to hang myself.
Cme on Sony bring it on guys!! The whole world is watching and the whole world wants that sexy little greatness you have for us.
yeah the games will have multi player communities at launch
Dat Ouya appeal
I don't even know what you're trying to say here. What Ouya appeal?
Um... yeah.... no.
@KwietStorm exactly. To be honest I am most definitely going to buy a PS4. I will probably get it before I get an X1, but I still hate all of you bandwagon pissants with your grubby fanboyism; how you move the goal posts when it suits you and how you seek to discredit half of the gaming population. f*** you i'm out
Ok, so your insane.
@Rhinoceros: eh ok? You dont make any sense. Seek help.
i think rhino may be refering to the ps4 indie appeal, ouya has alot of that.
There will always be that one or two xbone fans to disagree with those who appreciate what ps4 is achieving even before launch. Just wow.
Inform me on What the ps4 is Achieving? all this article tells me is that there slow at producing consoles... or they made none to begin with... or like every other company there making there products all the time...
@Heartnet, To you an XB1 fan, PS4 is slow at producing consoles, but in reality, they are running at full speed to meet demands. "or they made none to begin with.." You see, the status of PS4 is not the same as the XB1. The PS4 already announced their release date, while the XB1 hasn't. PS4 already passed FCC, while the only FCC documents I see XB1 passed is for the wireless controller.
The PS4 is winning over people in the US market as far as pre orders go, the same market that the 360 did so much better in. I think that alone is a grand achievement.
And to think mine is just sitting there waiting for me to give it a hug.
i am glad i pre ordered one, i would imagine these would go for a lot on ebay
Ah... Hyping the old "Supply and Demand" bit. Classic!
Lol damn i smell alot of overtime....
i will remind this when unboxing the ps4, the force of a thousand brothers and sisters who made this possible.
@Gaelic,Dirty,Conzul lol awesome just awesome replies...
no heartache though,they're made with love and sony magic
Mix that smell with a new ps4 and we will get that new console scent we all love to smell. Breath it in fellow playstation bros!
you have my bow
Oh my god, you guys are making me so HOT! Lets all rub lotion on each other. It's not gay if we don't enjoy it. Only one problem...we will enjoy it. :)
They better be, if not history will repeat itself
They learned from their previous mistakes that's for sure.
PS4 is proving unstoppable way before launch. Sony is showing us again that when done right, they make the best of gaming. Remember the ps2, God that was the greatest system ever, and the ps4 will beat it. Amen.
ps2 wasnt the greatest system ever... I dont see how.. it was low powered and a dvd player... The games were good but that dont make the system any better xD and since all those games on ps2 have been milked or wont be produced any more.. and they will try with ps4 to milk them again as its cheaper to use known IP than to create one... Gaming on consoles will just get worse story / gameplay but with nice graphics... It is the way.. Sad... oh and UNstoppable? what events could be foreseen to stop a launch of a console? even if they got no pre orders or failed at e3 the launch would still happen.. Inevitable is a better word...
@Heartnet Games don't make the system? Now that's hilarious.
gotta burn that midnight oil.
wow, it looks like once past the million Sony may have trouble filling the orders outright, the 2nd shipment, 3rd and 4th shipments may be all sold out at this rate before the platform even ships. Not a bad thing for the demand, its just bad if you cannot keep up with the demand and people want the system right away. It is a very good sign, that jim is talking about this right now well before launch though, sounds like they may have anticipated this demand, and can ramp up product production sooner rather than needing more time to increase production later.
I honestly hope that Sony does not meet demand and shortages occur since that way, I'll be able to sell a couple of PS4s that I preordered for $1,000+, just like with the PS3, on ebay Lol But in all seriousness, this is a good thing that Sony has such pent up demand. I estimate that the PS4 will surpass Wii u lifetime sales 3-5 months into its lifecycle (although Wii u sales arent impressive)
No Known numbers so far so "sold out" means good things but still nothing... They most likely produced low volumes of stock so they could say this then upped the production... So they could only have 200k preorders right now and still say this.. numbers is what we need.. and they wont be released any time soon.. Theres a reason for this btw
Yeah i want mine manufactured please
Just think. It could be out there, right now! Waiting patiently for us to open their pristine packaging, thinking longingly of that first look...
Ho man...! I remember sensuously stroking my first PS3 for like ten minutes before even hooking it up...then I pulled Drake's Fortune out of the box (it was a bundle) and was like "ok, wtf is this??" I feel so nostalgic....
@conzul, my PS3 is going to be super jealous when I walk in with her younger sister. It'll all work out though, there's enough love to go around.
Im glad they will fill demand, will be awesome. Hopefully the factories are no where fukushima... They are having huge problems because of it. Otherwise might want to get out the giger counters!
I believe most, if not all, components for video game consoles are made in China.
PS4: The new PS2
Dam right, this november will open some people eyes...
If you are wondering on why do i have two bubbles, well i got into a fight with some xbots, they marked me as trolling just because i was stating the fact, one xbot even said that infamous second son looks good as DR3.
I hear you brother.. i got 2 bubbles down in one argument over quite a sensible discussion that they couldn't answer to.. Pitiful. Here's a bub.
send them to me for termination.
Nope. The PS4 blows out the other two consoles in power. The PS4 is a whole new animal.
Not in term of power but in term of popularity.
I know my ps4 is somewhere in that factory...
<<<<giddy with excitement. I wonder which one is mine? #1,000,001 or maybe some thing cool like #5,420,210
I think they will be fine when it comes to demand for the most part but there is still that slight chance there might be shortages who knows
