The reaction following Sony's PlayStation 4 announcement is positive so far, and solid numbers are coming out to prove it. GameStop has reported that the PS4 is "showing strong demand" in just under a month since the console's unveiling.
In a statement, GameStop president Tony Bartel said, “With only a glance at the PS4, gamers are excited and eager to know more. Within just a few weeks, more than 600,000 people have signed up [for the First to Know list], showing strong demand for this new console.”
GameStop's First to Know list does not guarantee a system, but will alert subscribers when pre-orders open. The PS4 is set to launch this upcoming holiday season, but a price and release date have not been announced. 16 million PS4s are reportedly going to be available at launch.

"Hey do you wanna be part of our First to Know list for the ps4?"
"Huh...what is that?"
"Well basically we put you on this list where we tell you when you are able to preorder as soon as you are able to, which gives you the chance to be among the first to grab the console when it comes out."
"Yeah, that sounds alright. So anyway like I was saying...do you guys have God of War Ascension used yet?"

All 3 consoles this gen had strong demand before they launched. Wii-U broke that trend. PS4 and Xbox 720 will likely sell out at launch.

PS3 had plenty of demand despite how often gamestop employees tried to denied it and talk bad about it.

All I care about is not how many have signed up. Just when they will open Pre-orders. Most likely E3 though I would like to see GDC. Though I'll be doing take down on Monday(when GDC starts) for PAX East.
