Online Retailer Reports "Unprecedented Demand" For PS4
Last week, UK retailer GAME said pre-orders for the PlayStation 4 were already performing very well, and now another retailer is seeing immense demand for Sony's new console.
According to NowGamer, online retailer ShopTo has reported "unprecedented demand" and says their traffic tripled on the night of the PlayStation Meeting, which is of course when Sony unveiled their new system.
The PS4 has been the "biggest pre-order success in the company's history" and so far, Killzone: Shadow Fall and Watch Dogs have been the most pre-ordered titles, although DriveClub is also pretty popular. The announcement of the PS4 also increased registrations at ShopTo, mostly so customers could get their deposit down on the new console. Lastly, it helps that potentially great new software has been revealed because after all, gamers don't respond without the games.
He did add that although the console holds a £399.95 price tag at the ShopTo website, it isn't official and "nothing has been confirmed from anyone." We'll probably have to wait until E3 for that but in the meantime, the PS4 appears to be a hot item.
