PS4 Pre-Orders Are "Breathtakingly High"
Interest in the new generation is at a fever pitch right now.
Ever since it became possible to pre-order the PlayStation 4, it seems as if retailers have been reporting an extremely strong consumer response. Sony sees this great response, too.
According to what Sony UK boss Fergal Gara told GameSpot, PS4 pre-orders are through the roof, and they quite simply "don't have a pre-order problem."
"We are not seeking to accelerate our preorders any further, to be honest. [PS4 preorders] are breathtakingly high as they are right now. We do not have a preorder problem."
Let's just hope that this doesn't translate to the opposite problem; i.e., a lack of supply for the crazy demand. We all remember the debacle that was the PS3 launch, right? Gara did add that the company is dedicated to creating value for new PS4 owners and that there's lots they can do "to make gamers feel looked after in a PS4 world." He didn't go into specifics but Sony usually tries to take care of its fans, so...
If you've been living under a rock on Mars, we remind you that the PS4 will launch in North America on November 15 and on November 29 in Europe. It's still "TBD" for Japan.
