Charlotte Knight, a spokesperson for the UK video game retailer “GAME” has told videogamer.com that PlayStation 4 pre-orders are “performing very well”.
“Just like the rest of the gaming community, we were glued to the coverage of the Sony announcement.”
“We moved really quickly to get our PlayStation 4 pre-orders up and live and we saw a huge amount of excitement right from the word ‘go’. Our PlayStation 4 pre-orders are performing very well so far”.
She also indirectly mentions the cold reception received by the gaming community:
“Historically, the videogames industry has always been cyclical in line with the release of new hardware. Whilst that might change as the gaming landscape evolves, right now we can be certain that the next generation of consoles will boost retail sales. On top of that, it will mobilise developers to keep pushing the boundaries of gaming – and that’s great for both gamers and for the industry as a whole.”
