Sony says the PS4 is selling well

Sony says that it has sold 2.1 million PS4 consoles as of December 1. Sony also notes that PS4 owners are taking advantage of the social features of the new console, and that over 6.5 million shares have been captured using the Share button on the PS4 controller.
"PS4 delivered the best launch in PlayStation history with the North American release and we've continued this incredibly successful start in Europe, Australasia and Latin America," said Andrew House, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. 

"Demand remains incredibly strong and continues to overwhelm the supply worldwide, but we are diligently working to meet those growing demands and to deliver additional PS4 units to our retail partners throughout the holiday season."
Sony officially announced the PS4 console in June. The PS4 launched on November 15 in the U.S. and Canada, but the console has been in limited supply and some of the early units had an issue dubbed the "blue light of death."
On November 29, the console was made available in Europe, Australia, and Latin America. As of now, the PS4 is available in 32 countries around the world.

BF4 is boring?? Really? I guess getting spawn trolled all the time would make me disheartened too. Actually, I think I have a set of your tags.

He also said BioShock Infinite had awful shooting mechanics. I'd assume that he's just really bad at FPS games.

My railgun and rocket launcher accuracy says no. :)

Sorry dude, B:I had that awful Unreal Engine 3 feel to it. There was little meaningful difference between a bunch of awful feeling guns with no oomph, and there was no real hard decision to make between leveling up your skills since you could get your vigors all up to a decent place anyway.

Bioshock Infinite is an easy, boring game that takes absolutely zero skill and gives you no tough choices. Ken Levine peaked with System Shock 2, that game had great atmosphere that forced HARD decisions up the skill trees. No backtracking and there were big pluses and minuses with each decision. Bioshock was passable (awful last quarter) and B:I was overrated trash.

Its no big deal if you like it though. Lots of people like you enjoy easy on-rails games.

Yeah, it sucks. The last fun Battlefield game was BF2, I think because of the novelty at the time. 1942 was the peak because of its awesome vehicle physics. I could play Market Garden and Wake Island all day. Modern realistic shooters are super boring and require no skill. Snipe snipe snipe, shotgun shotgun, get kills in a tank.


Keep your baby shooters. Give me a real skill FPS like Quake 3 any day.
