    PS4 beats iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4 as most anticipated device

    http://www.thenewstribe.com/2013/04/...ets-in-demand/





    Sonys upcoming gaming console or in other words the Future of Gaming has made gadget lovers to fall in love with it.


    A recent research by a leading gadgets retail chain has quoted that over 900 thousands of its users have signed up to receive information about PS4.


    GameStop, a leading retain chain, says one of its internal consumer research survey shows a strong interest of consumers in the Sonys most anticipated gaming console.


    The items which were beaten by PS4 include smartphones, portable gaming devices, tablets, laptops, smart TVs and so many other things.


    Based on the survey of loyal customers of GameStop, 34% of them expect to get a PlayStation 4 in the next twelve month. Moreover, nearly 900 thousand of GameStop clients signed up to receive information about the PS4, says the survey report.


    So much demand has led the bosses of GameStop to reach the conclusion that Sony is unlikely to meet the expected demand from the game lovers in the first stage.


    Tony Bartel, GameStop president went on saying Although we have been given no official numbers by Sony, we do believe that demand will far outpace the supply of this product during the launch window.


    Another research firm has estimated that Sony is likely to ship over 2.5 million consoles in 2013 allover the world.

    Well the reason is obvious. Samsung and Apple release new phones with minor upgrades every 6-12 months. It's been over 6 years since Sony released a new console. Which one are you gonna anticipate more? The one that hasn't had a upgrade in 6 years.

    "Based on a survey of loyal customers of Gamestop" (power up rewards members). Seriously? lol Of course the latest and greatest console coming out would be the number one anticipated device of that particular survey sample. This isnt news.

    So many grammatical errors in that article. Gamestop is a decently sized retail chain in America so its really not a bad survey to go off of. But I would be more interested of it was from Best Buy since they deal with a wider range of electronics.

    No wonder. $#@!ing smartphones and tablets release every single year but a Playstation ... well that's a whole another level of excitement
    Tbh i can΄t wait too. This time it seems Sony doing everything right. PS4 will be a multi-task monster and that is something i really missed from PS3.

    From an Apple fan boy. PlayStation gives me much more excitement than any iPhone or iPad.

    Marketing is a crazy thing.

All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.”

    Doesn't really count if the survey comes from GameStop, of course it would be slightly biased, gamers go to site of course the will be more people wanting game related devices.

    So are they saying the next-box isn't anticipated at all? Because, unless I've suddenly gone blind; I can't see it on that list...

    (In other words, stupid list).

    Accurate conclusion.

    What is this, I don't even...

    Why is a console being compared to a Phone? Why the hell are they even on the same list?

    The topic is anticipated devices. The iPhone 5 sold millions the first week it was released, so I think it qualifies... but for what they are, the comparison doesn't make sense.

    Like Koaster said, they release consoles about every 6-7 years. Phones get yearly releases. The hype is naturally going to be very high. Especially as much as the PS4 is hyped.

    Can't speak for apple, but the s4 is. 1080 screen, two versions of the hardware...snapdragon 600/ exynos a15/7 little.Big combo. Quite a bit more powerful than the snapdragon too, which is already potent. S4 also has wolfson audio chip, which is excellent. The galaxy s1 had excellent audio.
