UK Retailer Expects PS4 To Revive A Lagging Game Market
The PlayStation 4 could go a long way toward reviving the flagging video game market in the UK.
GAME category director Charlotte Knight told VideoGamer that so far, PS4 pre-orders are "performing very well" and the retailer is seeing "incredible excitement and interest" from consumers."
She added that it appears the gaming community in the UK has really taken to Sony's new console, and the launch of the system will definitely "boost retail sales." Said Knight:
"Historically, the videogames industry has always been cyclical in line with the release of new hardware. Whilst that might change as the gaming landscape evolves, right now we can be certain that the next generation of consoles will boost retail sales. On top of that, it will mobilise developers to keep pushing the boundaries of gaming - and that's great for both gamers and for the industry as a whole."
There's no doubt that people seem happy with what they've seen of the PS4 thus far. However, it's important to note that GameStop in this country hasn't started taking pre-orders on Sony's new console just yet; you can, however, sign up for a First To Know information program. Will you be one of the first to reserve the PS4?
