    SCE-UK Head Fergal Gara - PS4 Will Launch "At Level We've Never Seen Before"

    Sony Computer Entertainment UK head Fergal Gara recently spoke to VG247 about the pre-order numbers of the PlayStation 4 and how the console will be the biggest launch the company has ever seen.

    On being asked whether the number of PS4 pre-orders in the UK is up from the previous generation, Gara responded, “They’re spectacularly up on the last generation. The number was greater than 1 million units and the UK represents a big chunk of that. Pre-orders are incredibly healthy. They give us every confidence that this generation will get off to a stunning start.


    “I think there are some naysayers out there who think console gaming’s on the way out: if you look at the pre-order numbers you’d come to a very different conclusion. There’s a certainty it’s going to start with a big bang.


    “We’re very pleased with that, although there is a downside. How much stock to fulfil how much demand is now the game we’re playing. If you go back a few months, the sheer level of demand wasn’t really anticipated. It’s the biggest we’ve ever seen. A level we’ve never seen before.”
    The PlayStation 4 is set to launch on November 29th in Europe.
    ...any chance that it could end up like the PS2?

    Happy to see the Pre-orders are so high but i would have been surprised if it had been low.

    Console gaming will be big for quite sometime because it's a somewhat simplified version of an expensive, complex alternative for gaming, the PC, you know what else is a simplified alternative to PC ( albeit for different reasons )? Tablets and Smartphones, and they sell like hotcakes because they are easier to use with little need for in depth understanding, you just do what you need to do with what's provided.

    Both console and 'mobile' gaming are perfect for the casual, the time limited and the lazy, let's face it, there is a lot of those people out there.
