PS4 pre-orders are beating PS2 and PS3; "We’re seeing a sea change"

Sony is claiming a record number of pre-orders for the upcoming PS4.

Videogamer reports that SCE UK boss Fergal Gara says that pre-orders for the machine are tracking way over and above and beyond the pre-order number at launch day of the PS2 and PS3”.

Specific numbers weren’t issued, but Gara did confirm that the total currently stands at over 1m units.

"We’re not disclosing the exact number [of PS4 units] that we’ll have on day one," Gara stated. "Clearly we’re working hard to satisfy a lot of countries. We mentioned 32 countries last night.

"The one comment I’ll make about the pre-order number is first of all, it’s greater than a million, and secondly, the UK represents a very healthy slug of that. We’re undeniably seeing a sea change.

"I’m very, very pleased with it, so we will be looking at sell outs in areas. We’re doing everything we can to secure every last unit … so we an do out very best to meet the demand as it stands for day one and clearly chasing there after.

"It’s a little bit of a problem, but it’s good problem to have."

PS4 launches in the UK on November 29th.
