So much more than war...

The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

Need a Japanese PS4? They're Not Hard to Find

Posted on Saturday, February 22 @ 05:05:05 Eastern by Heath_Hindman
Reports are all over the internet about long lines of crazy gamers waiting for days for the PS4 launch. The only thing crazier about camping out to buy a system... is camping out for a system when it isn't entirely necessary. The poor sap below found this out the hard way when he tried to get video of crazed shoppers foaming at the mouth as they guarded their PS4s from ravenous opponents.




The campers on the streets who have been quoted as waiting since Friday or even Thursday for Saturday's arrival of the PlayStation 4 are actually doing the whole campout thing more out of tradition than necessity. The PS4 truly was sold out of its pre-order allotments at a ton of stores, online and traditional. But all it takes is a drive around a Japanese city to find that very few actually had any lines before opening. And close to the end of the business day (this is being written in late afternoon), most stores still have PS4 units available.



Occasionally, you'll see a "sold out" sign across one version or the other of the First Limited Pack, but most places still have some version of the console that can still be purchased by a walk-in customer.

There's no doubt that Sony will post strong numbers for the PS4's opening sales weekend, including this first day. It's important to note, however, that the early days don't mean everything. The PS4 could be a triumph huge success or only end up middling. PS4's speedy sellouts online could mean everything or nothing. The fact that stock can be so easily found on launch day could mean even more or even less than those sellouts. Either way, play nice and welcome your Japanese brethren to the next generation.
