The PlayStation 4 unveiling by Sony did not see much of the actual hardware being revealed. It is true Sony showed the new DualShock 4 controller. However Sony did not show the Gaming Console. It did not even show the mockup of the console leaving many experts wondering the need for unveiling the device if its components were not ready. Sony probably wanted to pre-empt any gains which will be accrued by Microsoft whose Xbox 720 is said to be far ahead in terms of features as well as specs in comparison to the PlayStation 3.
It is now being rumored that Sony will debut the actual PlayStation hardware in June at the E3. Sony will have to get its act soon and complete the PlayStation 4 by June if it wants to release the Gaming Console by the festive season in November or December.
The delay or the lack of knowledge about the PlayStation 4 has placed the retailers in a un-envious position since they want to take the pre-orders. Numerous retailers are fine tuning their selling strategy for the PlayStation 4 but are hampered by the lack of details of either the hardware of the device or its price tags.
A well known retailer, GameStop, has announced something which has been named as ‘PS4 First to Know List’, which affords the latest news about the PlayStation 4 and related titles. It will provide the consumers who want to buy the Gaming Console important information pertaining to the opening of the pre-orders.
