    GameStop believes the PS4 will sell out like crazy at launch

    Well, they explained the premise in a more clinical manner. Says company president Tony Bartel about the prospects of the PlayStation 4 on a conference call, as reported by GamesIndustry International: “We do believe demand will far outpace supply within the launch window, although we have been given no official numbers by Sony,”

    Furthermore, GameStop regularly polls consumers, and they report that 34 percent of those questioned plan on buying a PS4 this year, which is higher than for any other piece of hardware. It seems likely, however, that the anticipated reveal of a new Xbox might change that perspective a bit. Bartel also pointed out that more than 900,000 users have signed up to be notified about any new PS4 info on the GameStop web site.

    Not a shocker really. Only thing that may change peoples minds is the price tag whenever it's finally revealed.

    edit:
    I was one of the people signed up to be notified of anything to come down the road. Quicker I can pre-order one, the better.

    I'm sure both consoles will tbh unless MS really screws up. And I'm on the PS4 first to know list as well.

    Whatever. The interest is unusually high based on what? The PS4 is being covered a lot right now, so there really isn't anything that would suggest that the interest is unusual.

    We already know, price + content is the key. Marketing completes it.

    Of course it will! People will be losing there friggin minds in excitement.

    I think people will buy it no matter how much it cost. If sony shows the games at E3 and they hype it out people will buy it.ms hurt them selfs by pushing back the 720 show.but that will sell well in its own right.

    Sony better be ready to keep up to the demand of their product, PS3 history can't be repeated again.

    That was a disaster. I remember reports of one death, injuries and thefts during launch week. They better have enough to make everyone happy.

    This is why I avoid going to the release of...anything! People are nuts! I'll pick mine up a few months later or more thank you very much.

    I think people, at this point, don't care much about the launch lineup and are more excited about the setup.

    Of course the games will come into play but their focus is definitely better (to the point) than what they had with the PS3.

    TBH I'm thinking it's more to do with people desperate for new consoles, I wouldn't buy a system for any of those games except maybe Killzone.

    You mean like the N64, the Gamecube, the Xbox, the PS2, the 360 the Wii and the PS3? There is almost always a high demand for consoles at launch. Perhaps the WiiU was an exception but I can't recall a recent console launch where you could just walk into a store and pick one up.

    Is this really news?

    Announcing a console a few months after the other isn't gonna hurt anymore then releasing a few months after the other. BOTH Sony and Microsoft have enough hardcore loyal fans to sell out their launch consoles. They both have about 77 million console base at the moment, which will only increase between now and the launch of the new consoles. They both have huge pools of fans to draw from for their next consoles.

    EXACTLY! Most modern consoles (apparently not the Wii-U from what you guys are saying here) sell out at launch.

    Personally no, I don't like shooters and wouldn't buy a console for ANY shooter, except maybe Half Life 3, but out of those games I only see KZ as being THE game to get the system for.
