PlayStation 4 Preorders

There is certainly pent-up demand among gamers who have been waiting for what seems like ages for Microsoft and Sony to unveil their next-generation video game consoles. How badly did gamers want a refresh? Sony recently announced that pre-sales of its upcoming PlayStation 4 console have surpassed 1 million units. To put that figure in perspective, Forbes notes that Stern Agee analyst Avind Bhatia said in a recent research note that Sony’s PlayStation 3 sales from the holiday quarter in which it launched back in 2006 didn’t even total 1 million units. In other words, the PS4’s launch-quarter sales have already topped the PS3, and the new console hasn’t even debuted yet. Sony’s new PlayStation 4 will be released on November 15th starting at $399.99.
