Namibia: Where PS4 Demand Is Huge

Sony’s PlayStation 4 console has been available world-wide since late last year, and the African continent has been scrambling to get in on the action. In South Africa, virtually all stock has been sold out, but one African nation is trying hard to stay ahead of ever-increasing demand: Namibia. (Industry, PS4)

Why don't we ever hear: "XBOX ONE demand is huge in Burkina Faso" or any other country for that matter?

"All other Namibian retailers however said that the popular gaming console sold out within 48 hours of receiving stock from neighbouring South Africa.”

Because the Xbox One isnt out in Burkina Faso? Plus this news is relative to the PS4 as you can tell from the article. I know you dont like the news but you cant silence the press from reporting this.

What I meant is that I only hear "PS4 rocks, PS4 owns" on N4G and little about the XBONE. Is it biased or something?

Get it of your head.. The X1 wouldn't have sold out there. X1 is in most demand in the U.S. and it isn't sold out here.

The demand isn't there, I guess.

Xbox One's demand is there just in USA

I'm in Texas, and what I've seen since both consoles launched is XB1s on the shelves next to empty PS4 shelves. XB1 is obviously selling, but if Sony's production was keeping up with demand PS4 would be widening the gap pretty steadily.

Or you can plug your fingers in your ears and say la la la while believing that the whole world is being run by Sony fanboys.

That seems to be in fashion lately.

What tier do you think Burkina Faso falls under, according to Microsoft?

Seriously, though, you don't hear it because it's not happening. Demand isn't huge for the system, which is why it stays stocked so well. If demand WERE high, it may well have outsold the PS4 by now, as Microsoft may actually have managed to produce more units.

But there are far more XB1s on shelves than PS4s. It's hard to tell if that REALLY means demand is higher, because we don't know how many were shipped. Even so, it's likely that there is next to no demand for the XB1 in Burkina Faso, Namibia, and many other places around the world.

Well, that's a surprise, because Namibia it's not known for beign one of the most richest countries in Africa. In fact, the unemployment rate it's very high there. But well, it's good to hear the console demand it's rising around the world.

We have people with money in any country. Poorer countries usually have terrible money distribution, so everywhere there will be potential costumers.
