Hey! There's a hotdog stand!
FamilyGuy  +   850d ago
A PS4 in your house would DEFINITELY quality as a "home improvement" so it makes some sense. LOL

Yeah but really, I was confused too as a first thought, my second thought matched AuricGoldfinger's. Third thought... Can we pre-order PS4s at Home Depot!?

When are these gonna pop up in the places we expect? You know, Best Buy, Toys R Us, Walmart, Kmart, Target, GameStop. How the hell did Home Depot get it first?

The more shops selling ps4 the better. no?

Contractors and construction workers do make pretty good money ;-)
after a hards day cutting, lifting, building and shoveling dirt and gravel at work, why not chill and relax with a PS4 when you get home.

Oh' you do not know why?

wow i thought people know this, Sony did this very thing back in early 2007.

Many times like on shows on PBS home improvement they have "how to install a home home theatre system"

well can you guess which game console they are mainly using in the demonstration?

example: with belemont in a standard home theatre system of Sony's

but here is example from Home depot

jujubee88  +   850d ago
They usually have a snack stand out in front of the local one here. And the bathrooms have a water fountain by the side. They also have a nice little garden patio section with comfy seetings.

Damn, it would be a scene if people flash mobbed Home Depots around the area. The new "hang out spot". HAha.

I'd pay just to see the culture clash of our generation. Home Depot regulars vs Extreme Gaming Enthusiasts. :D
orakle44  +   850d ago
I dunno about this, this does not make sense at all. Home Depot? and if you read the article they say that its going to be set up in lawn and garden??? I dunno about the stores where you guys are from but my local stores lawn and garden are just not believing any of this.
Blaze929  +   849d ago
"He said they will be setting them up in Lawn & Garden in the coming week"

lolwut? Home Depot? They won't even be selling PS4s. Sony marketing at work smh. I mean really lol, can someone explain how this might make marketing sense?

Home Depots and Taco Bells lol. What's next, Payless shoe store?

Home Depot gets over one million customers a day across the US, and twice that much on the weekends. The majority of people that shop there have money to pay for stuff like improving their homes. Floor advertising space is valuable there.

I do question the Lawn & Garden section part. When i worked at Lowe's, that section was pretty dead in the winter. Unless it's on the interior part, which is typically right next to the entrance...the most valuable real estate in the entire store.

Of course the ps4 an exclusive item @depot right next to all the sh1t you need to build your man cave.

Gamestop needs to get a PS4 kiosk. I walk into mine and they got Xbox One displays in the front of the store and no PS4 displays! Just racist if you ask me!
FlameHawk  +   850d ago
Its that Microsoft $$$$, what a waste if you ask me, no wonder they have no exclusives lol. They could spend that money to make a game.

Well at Home Depot, it is dat well spent Sony $$$$!

Why complain about one company doing it, while not the other?

Because you perceive one as an attack against you, while the other furthers your agenda!
LordDhampire  +   850d ago
Wut? No exclusives....where have you been
G20WLY  +   850d ago
^Nuk, how much do you think it cost MS to get Gamestop to side with one brand over the other? Quite a lot? Agreed.

Sony: So we'll just leave a PS4 demo here, okay?
Home Depot: A what? Whatever man *carries on mixing paint*

I jest, of course, but I don't think there will have even been close to the same financial outlay from Sony to make this happen.

Wow.. look at this sony favored place rock. This flame hawk says that MS has no exclusives, yet is rocking them at launch. He gets 24 agrees and 12 disagrees... probably a "well said" is in coming as well.

Then you get LordDhampire call him out and ask "what? no exclusives, where have you been" and is bombarded with the disagrees from the Sony faithful.

Uhm.. there's Ryse, Forza, Killer Instinct, Dead Rising, Crimson Dragon... But ya, Flame hawk and all his bubbles are right.

Sony Son!

Don't feel bad. At my regular GameStop they have the Sony stuff right next to the door, including demo station. The Xbox stuff you have to wade past the PC, DS, and meaningless stand that no one looks at, to get to. They don't even have an Xbox kiosk of any kind, but do have one for the Wii U, PS3, and Vita. Not sure about the PS4...didn't notice when I picked up Beyond yesterday.
cl1983  +   850d ago
Its great that you can go into Home Depot and test it out. However I'm confused on why its at a hardware store and not a game store.
Outsider-G  +   850d ago
I thought the same thing. Also, why would they set it up in the "Lawn & Garden" section? Lol
rainslacker  +   849d ago
Lawn & Garden is right at the entrance. The plants and stone stuff is kept outside at every one I've seen, but everything else is there right when you walk in. It's the most expensive part of the store for vendors to buy to set up displays. I think registers are the 2nd most expensive.

Why home depot? Because they have over 1 million customers a day, and twice that much on weekends. Contractors, laborers, dad's being dragged there by their wives for that weekend home improvement task, typically with their kids in tow.

I don't think it's genius or anything, but I can't see that the exposure will hurt. Probably costs a lot less than the Toy's R' Us top 15 list.

Who knows, maybe Home Depot wants to branch out into electronics. They already sell appliances.

Campy da Camper  +   849d ago
Agreed. I'm actually thinking they might be promoting a build it yourself home entertainment center and if you buy it you get a ps4 forfree. That would actually be a good idea.

Only douchebags go to game stores and they probably have already decided what they want so a kiosk is redundant

Home Depot???? This is a full on hardware store for doing landscaping, home repair and construction projects. Zero electronics are ever sold here. Maybe they built the cabinet, lol.
cl1983  +   850d ago
They do sell noise cancelling radio headphones.
ZBlacktt  +   850d ago
I'm going to stop by and ask about this
rainslacker  +   849d ago
They actually do sell electronics. HDTV's and speakers at least. I don't recall ever seeing them in my local home depot, but I usually go to Lowe's, and I don't typically go to hardware stores to pick up electronics.

Maybe there is some other promotion brewing.
Majin-vegeta  +   849d ago

Cryptcuzz  +   850d ago
Really Home Depot?

I've been in a lot of different Home Depot's in my lifetime since my dad is in the construction business and have never ever seen any gaming related kiosks there.

Where ever this Home Depot is at, it will always be the best one to me.

My hardware store gaming cherry has been popped Lol.

Get a life Cuzz! I'm just playing around!
Sarobi  +   850d ago
I guess from all the buzz PS4 gathers they figure it'd bring attention to their store.
UncleGermrod  +   850d ago
I doubt that this is real. I can't say the display shown is fake, but I doubt that it's at a home depot. Also, why would it be set up in lawn and garden? Idk about any of this. I have been wondering if there would be any pre-launch kiosks and where. But i doubt if it will be here.
showtimefolks  +   850d ago
lol good one sony, i guess they have us the gamers so they are trying to reach the casuals whichever they can

a lot of parents go to HD to buy home appliances and other stuff they need for their homes, so i guess walking around some will see ps4 and may buy it for their kids
Soldierone  +   850d ago
Can you even buy a PS4 there? This makes no sense in any way shape or form.....

Something about this story is just too weird. I mean I saw the pic but why home depot??? But Sony does have their new marketing team since last year and tons of husbands and fathers are always shopping there for home repairs and other things. Lets see if this new marketing pays off.

this marketing is ingenious cause ive got projects that ive been putting off around the house now ill go to home depot tomorrow to check out the ps4 and pick up the things i needed for the house while im there . great job sony ,thanks
AceBlazer13  +   850d ago
It's either a dumb idea or an ingenious one.Gamers already know their choice so it's time to capture all types of casuals, lol maybe a kiosk at Barnes and noble next?

Seems such a random store for it to be in, I guess they'll show up at barber's or nail salons next.
sigfredod  +   849d ago
Of course you can purchase the PS4 + the tools and the materials ehat they use to build the kiosk lol
crowsticky1234  +   849d ago
Home Depot?? Unexpected. But what can construction workers build with a PS4, but this is a great move and it can give them more sales, besides of focusing on one market, they're attempting to advertise it in other markets. I can see these in H&M and that wouldn't be a bad idea.
rainslacker  +   849d ago
Construction workers make pretty decent money. It makes sense to market to people who make decent money. Particularly those that work tough jobs all day. They also get all the random casual do-it-yourselfers on the weekend who get dragged there by their wives.

When dad has to sit there picking out curtain patterns for 3 hours, I can see his mind wandering to the PS4 kiosk he saw when walking in.
etownone  +   849d ago
Looking forward to trying it out. Testing the new controller.

And seeing next gen graphics.

is it me or dose the ps4 look alot bigger then before
