    That is crazy. We're living in an age were gaming has exploded and more people every day are getting in to it. Congrats to Sony on delivering a great product that people clearly want. I know my 2 PS4's will be getting plenty of use.

    Proof that gaming consoles should not fear Android devices. Stick to putting a system out there that puts games first and foremost and people WILL line up.

    Price. That is why it passes the PS3. Easily. I'd say the same thing about the PS2 back 13 years ago. It's more relevant to the PS3 though.

    They should never feat Android/iOS gaming because it might be a bit fun for some but it will never offer the same experience consoles do unless of course they manage to power up smartphones and tablets with as many beef as the PS4 and they would also need AAA releases.

    My only concern is that they don't feel to meet all pre-orders, don't want no disappointment on launch date.

    So I Guess 1 million preorders was a lot. Interesting that it beat out the PS2. But I'm also sure it's much easier to preorder nowadays. Not downplaying it. 1 million preorders is still 1 million preorders.

    Not surprising. Preorders weren't a popular way to pay with the PS2, and the PS3 preorders filled up the day they opened, since there were only about 200,000 units for launch. The gamestop I got mine at got 6 PS3s in on launch day. Preorders filled up 5 minutes into they day they opened.

    I'm glad PS4 is selling a lot of preorders, but comparing to PS2 and PS3 doesn't mean much.

    You would have to compare the PS4 launch with the Nintendo Wii launch.

    Good point. It will be interesting to see how the supply/demand ratio stacks up after launch.

    I feel sorry for the people that waited to pre-order.
    Big thread on Gaf about Infamous coming out in February and a lot of members saying that is when they will buy a PS4. Good luck finding one lulz. I think the PS4 will be sold out until summer next year possibly longer.

    I'd say that demand would ease down by may at the latest.

    This is good, but not shocking at all. Both Sony and Microsoft have their highest preorders on each than their console predecessors.

    There are a couple reasons for this. The biggest reason is population growth in the world. Every year, more and more people (kids) become old enough to join the ranks of gamers. When I was a kid, most adults didn't play videogames. It was considered something kids played, not adults. But as the years rolled on, more and more of those kids became adults. And as adults, many remained gamers. Then their children became gamers and then their grandchildren did after that and so on.

    So not only is the population of the earth larger than in the past, but the people that play videogames now make up a larger percentage of the total population than in the past as well. So expect the preorders on PS5 and Xbox Two will be higher than their predecessors.... or at the very least match them. People still love their console gaming.

    I'm curious, why do you need 2 of each if you don't mind me asking?

    I believe it because I remember reading a thread in which 15,000 PS4s were being preordered per minute.

    Good job Sony, but I do agree with a lot that was said in this thread. The number of gamers has grown since the PS2 days and the PS3 was too costly for many people to preorder it.

    Thing is, I'm not sure I would have used PS2 or PS3 preorders as a barometer. Wii preorders seem more likely, because I don't think either of those other systems had a strong launch.

    I fear that demand will be greater than SONY will be able to keep up with, even if you have a pre-order I expect it will be well into January before those 1million are fully covered and the pre-orders filling up right this very second.

    Expect crazy demand, short stock, thefts, rioting, deaths and more than likely massive markups through scummy eBay scalpers.

    bah, I'll just walk in and walk out with a PS4. If some thug comes up to me trying to start $#@!, he will end up with a broken nose. I've been hit in the face and head a few times with a baseball bat, I'm not worried. A gun on the other hand....well....I'll gladely toss him my PS4 since I heard of people getting killed for much less.
