PlayStation 4 Sold Out Almost Everywhere in South Korea Following Successful Worldwide Launch

South Korea could easily be defined the motherland of PC gaming, at least due to how popular games like Starcraft and League of Legends are locally, but Korean gamers aren't really against entertaining themselves with consoles as well and Sony can add another country to its PlayStation 4 tally.

A console selling out in the PC gaming capital of the world is saying allot, I never thought the PS4 would be this successful in launch, honestly I thought early worldwide sales would be much slower.

well both x1 are ps4 are pc, the ps4 use linux os, and X1 use a mini windows version with direct 8. Both systems are using PC components. I wouldn't be surprise if someone format PS4 and install windows 7. -_-..

Ps4, ps3 and ps vita use freebsd not linux. Steam machines will be linux.

Keep in mind Sony is having all success with out having to push out all these Big Budget Ads Microsoft's kicking out like McDonald's and Xbone Commercial's during NFL Football games etc...

Damn so much down vote for that comment

I have the feeling that Free To Play games where you don't need to pay for a subscription will help sell a lot of PS4 in Asian countries

I wouldn't mind some of the better Korean F2P MMO's coming out over in the west on the PS4 as well. There are quite a few to choose from.

Sarcasm858d ago

I think they are on to something if Sony keeps trying to get more MMOs. I'm curious given how easy the PS4 is to develop for if any Korean developers will try to make a Korean MMO on that system.

Eyeco858d ago (Edited 858d ago )

Precisely, If Sony establishes a large presence in SK they're going to have to cater to their needs, this could result in much more improvements to PSN, more MMO's, and maybe even RPG's it's potentially a win win for everyone, theoretically of course.

Blade&Soul and i wondering if they were in the talks about this when way back they partner up with ncsoft before the chaos that ncsoft na is in now but i am curious as in like a GW2 port or Blade&Soul port of the sort idk i'm just throwing shit out there :)

Honestly I didn't think it would do half as good as it has been doing either. But I'm glad it has. I've been Playstation since PS1 and after last gen the way the PS3 got treated when it came to DLC and half ass ports or games not even appearing on the consol. I'm glad that its doing good because at least now third party devs would have to be paid a lot of money to ignore the PS4.

A mark of excellence right there. Shot out to all my Korean peoples (friends) and ex-girlfriend who is still one of the most beautifulest things in this world!

amiga-man858d ago

Sony really are on a role, great days ahead for PS4 owners.

AsiaticGodBorn857d ago

I don't know what's worse: the fact that you refer to your Korean ex-girlfriend as a "thing" , or that 16 people agree with you. Seeing how you're obviously not Korean, but still potentially Asian, I'm going to stop short of throwing out the word Asiaphile. However, I will reprimand you on grounds of objectification and grammar violations; unless of course your real name is Keith Murray.

He's trying to show that her beauty transcends humans. That her beauty is itself a sight to behold, which can be compared to fine art or a gorgeous landscape. A thing.

Either that or Kurt Russel is going to flame-throw his ex girlfriend :-o

_FantasmA_858d ago

Well with that recent report about the anti gaming bill, I hope South Koreans fight that to the death. And PS4 is the next best thing to PC, so why would they not jump on it?

cyguration858d ago

Yup, trying to get in on the greatness before the government tries to ruin the fun.

Heck, they probably want a bunch of Xbones + Kinect 2.0 in peoples' homes just so they monitor them.
