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!
