Pre-Order Sales Break Records and Sony Confirms 30 PlayStation 4 Exclusives

Following E3 2013, PlayStation 4 news has been light. However, we have seen three big announcements in the weeks following the conference which cement the fact that the PlayStation will be the top console in the next generation.

Amazon has confirmed what we already knew to be true: the PlayStation 4 is going to be a huge success. The online retailer states that "Amazon customers were pre-ordering more than 2,500 Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles per minute." We already know that the PlayStation 4 is outselling the Xbox One two to one; coupled with Amazon's news, this amounts to a large amount of sales for a system still months away and with plenty of reveals to come.

What is driving these preorders? Perhaps it is the fact that Sony has confirmed it has over 30 unrevealed exclusives for the PS4, with 20 of these games expected to come out within a year of the console's release. So far, all we know about this list is that it contains 12 new franchises, which is always exciting.

And while we're sure everyone is already aware of the news, the Xbox One has done a complete reversal of its DRM policies. Speculation abounds that this was due to the PS4's no DRM policy and the fact the console started outselling the Xbox One by such a large margin.

Hoping one of your favorite franchises is one of the 30 PS4 exclusives? Did you already preorder your PS4? Let us know in the comments!

SlimMerc: PLAYSTATION NATION!!!!

I would just like to start off by saying BAM! MICROSOFT, HOW YOU LIKE THEM APPLES?!!! I mean after back to back poor Xbox One conferences and the dumb DRMs policy, who honestly didn't see this one coming. PS4 completely wiped its rear end with the Xbox One. Sony kept it all about the gamers, delivering an overall console players will easily except and enjoy. However, Microsoft stooped low enough to have fans become new PS4 loyalist. Maybe in the next next gen run Microsoft lol. I personally preordered and paid off the PS4, BF4 & Watchdogs already. I also purchased a PS Vita, Soul Sacrifice and 1 Year PS Plus to double the fun and overall experience. I'm completely excited for the PS4 & can't wait to just experience it's greatness. I know the exclusives and just next gen gaming will be very amazing and with the whole SHARE feature; I can finally show friends how much of a bad ass I am in Battlefield multiplayer

By paying off now it doesnt

By paying off now it doesnt confirm that u will get PS4 on launch date,and by badass u probably mean bad player,because there are allways better players than u so, dont get over your head boy. Anyway I just pre-odered PS4 but wount pay it off becasue i dont see point in paying for it before its releases.

he never said by paying it

he never said by paying it off that he would def get a ps4 on launch, he was just saying he was so excited that he already paid for it. and why do you care if he wants to kick some ass in battle field 4. he might not be the best but then again he never said that. anyway who cares how he preordered his ps4 or how good he thinks he is at a game? whats it to you? seems like you are just a hater. grow up loser
