Ok I just wanted to check the availability of the PS4 just to found out it sold out again.

I honestly believe we have seen the last of this situation about 3 weeks ago.

Ok I am one of those guys that got taken by the hype. The only other console I bought during launch was the N64. I am still busy playing all those Free PS+ games on both PS3 and Vita (purchased one right after buying my PS4 and found out Gravity Rush and Uncharted being free) to even have decent time to play the PS4. I haven't got a chance to play outlast and just starve yet. Now I am playing a lot of JRPG, bought Ys Celceta of Memories.

Now even if my PS4 is not being played at the moment. I am  not one second dissastified by my purchase one bit. I just know the games are coming. Getting ready for Infamous and the new video of The Order.

It looks like somehow Sony manage to get people to trust the PS4. That would explains those crazy sales number and the almost quick sell out everytime it becomes available.

 

Edit: Not even available for Pre-order... smh

They are still getting sold out even while Retailers are abusing the demand with crazy non desired bundles (Gamestop). The hype for this system is crazy.

That's the kind of question I'm still asking to myself right now.

Because PS4 is the PS2 real child, he looks like his father and has his mother's eyes

 



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

 

because the competition es crappy

Because of what sony did with the ps3.. They deserve trust and sales.. To go from barely having better first party than microsoft , to surpassing Nintendo.. With innovative IP after IP.. They proved themselves last gen

People must be really keen for a new piece of hardware. I can't imagine it's the software causing the hype. I'm actually considering one too but I'm tossing up spending AU$550 on a PS4 or a videocard when Nvidia Maxwell hits.

Edit: Also what leo-j said ^



Because with price, power, and the anticipated library of games taken into account, many consider it the best value.

Yep(at the opposite, Microsoft deserves to be 3rd for the lack of support these 3 last years),  and i think if The Last Of Us, last big new exclusive game, had been a microsoft exclusive, that would have changed a lot of things

supply((Pre-release Hype + Moderate Launch Success) * XB1 annoncement) = demand
