if "without alot of games" as some will like to believe (but i digress) and its selling out this fast imagine when infamous, drive club and other unannounced games starting coming out out.... get them while they are hot kids

sobekflakmonkey1517d ago (Edited 1517d ago )

yeah, I'm ridiculously stoked for Driveclub, more so than I am Infamous second son; Now I know I may be in the minority on that, but I've been waiting so long for a really good arcade/sim racer that has an awesome soundtrack and looks awesome as well.

On another note, really looking forward to The Order. Not so many games now, but my god...the future is looking mighty bright.

Even though the PS4 doesn't have a lot of games i think that the Playroom twitch phenomenon is one of the reasons the console is selling out.

People have the urge to be recognized & even for a few minutes the Playroom Twitch streaming can do just that. 5 secs of fame that's what some people are looking for.

It'll get more crazy when the quality games do begin to show up.

$400 is a very enticing buy-in price for a new console gaming system. Add to that Sonys track record: their number of exclusives, the quality of the first party games, the hardware, the consistent updates, PS+ being praised left and right (which it deserves).
For anyone that reads gaming news and looks in to it they also know of all the added bonuses like the amount of F2P games to try out, The Playroom and its kid-friendly fun, the game streaming, game clip recording, the new controller and the praise it's been getting.

It just makes sense, Sony hasn't really stumbled with their PS4 launch. DriveClubs delay was they only real set back but even that game is getting a lot of attention because of how stunning it looks given that extra development time.

I am slightly surprised to see it still sold-out even a full month after the holidays. If this momentum continues until the end of February, then we can officially say Sony is on a roll.

Hey there. all gamers.

PS4 is not sold out.
You can buy a brand new, unopened PS4, with valid warranty. Always available:

Catch: They cost $500, same as the XBO.

NO need to hurry.
PS4s are always available for sale at that price.
Go figure, huh?

Just trying to help, really.

I want to see an updated version of that old PlayStation One commercial, where they say "This might look like a harmless bagel toaster, but inside is a deadly doughnut" hahahaha

GarrusVakarian1517d ago (Edited 1517d ago )

Like i said, they can't make 'em as fast they sell 'em!

Ive never seen this demand before....but it's to be expected when you look at what the PS3 turned into, it went from "PS3 has no games", "glorified blu ray player" to having the most, best looking and best rated exclusives and the best value paid service on consoles.

The combination of the best 1st party devs in the business, the ridiculous value of PS plus, power, price and a 20 year track record of giving gamers exactly what they want are the reasons the PS4 is doing so well.

GTgamer1517d ago

PS4 sells out everytime what a thang what a thang these things literally sell themselves.

They are lucky to get such a good dedicated install base in before they even have a ton of good games.

Will entice more dev's to make games because there are so many people waiting to play them.

DJMarty1517d ago (Edited 1517d ago )

True, and X1 sits on the shelves getting dusty:)

Whoa! <Keanu Voice>

Then they must be from the future. When they are done populating, they will get organized and begin the reconstruction of the matrix. =8^|

Hahahaha that made me laugh!

Wizziokid1517d ago

Good news for Sony, glad I got mine early, it's going to be another great year for gamers what ever console they choose.

DanielGearSolid1517d ago

I think they made the right decision releasing in so many Regions

TheEnigma3131517d ago

I reserved mines back in june of last year. I had a feeling once Sony announced the price tag this thing would have a high demand.
