Exciting times ahead in the console market. Doomsday predictions from many market analysts suggested that there was no appetite for next-gen consoles, as gamers were moving to cloud platforms and iPhone/Android devices. Well, latest rumours are that Amazon are taking pre-orders to the tune of 2500 per MINUTE for the next generation Playstation 4 and Xbox One consoles.
Playstation 4 seems to have won round 1, with a lower price and zero DRM and used game restrictions from day one. Microsoft have hit back after being deluged with criticism over it’s used game restrictions, and have now removed those restrictions. However, it will take a massive public relations exercise to recover lost ground on Sony.
Best bet for your pre-order at the moment is Amazon – they aren’t the cheapest around at £349, however from experience you will receive your console on launch day and there is a strong likelihood that the price will drop before launch – and Amazon offer their “pre-order price guarantee”.
