PS4 pre-orders “way ahead” of PS2 and PS3
PlayStation 4 seems to be the most awaited console in Sony’s history. The one million plus pre-orders are “way over and above and beyond the pre-order number at launch day” of both the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 according to Fergal Gara, Sony Computer Entertainment UK chief.
“We’re not disclosing the exact number [of PS4 units] that we’ll have on day one,” said Gara. “Clearly we’re working hard to satisfy a lot of countries. We mentioned 32 countries last night.”
He added: “The one comment I’ll make about the pre-order number is first of all, it’s greater than a million, and secondly, the UK represents a very healthy slug of that. We’re undeniably seeing a sea change.
“I’m very very pleased with it, so we will be looking at sell outs in areas. We’re doing everything we can to secure every last unit … so we an do out very best to meet the demand as it stands for day one and clearly chasing there after.
“It’s a little bit of a problem, but it’s good problem to have.”
They appear to be very confident about the console’s future and they are sincerely in every right to be confident. What about you, have you pre-ordered a PlayStation 4 or will you wait until after the official release?
