Well, this doesn’t come as a huge surprise to anyone. UK retailer ShopTo reports that the demand for PlayStation 4 pre-orders is “unprecedented”. Not only that, the PlayStation 4 has been the biggest pre-order success in the company’s history.
Speaking to NowGamer, ShopTo representative James Rowson said that the PlayStation 4 pre-orders have been backed up with PS4 game pre-orders as well. So far Killzone Shadow Fall and Watch Dogs are the best sellers. ShopTo sells the PS4 console on their site for £399, which is almost $600 bucks. Of course, this isn’t the final price, and it’ll likely cost a lot less.
As the PlayStation 4 gets more and more attention from the mainstream media, we can expect pre-orders at various retailers to keep rising. Sony is expected to reveal the console design and the price at E3 2013 in June.
