Once Again Sony Appeals to its Customers' Nostalgia.
The shop once again was a successful attempt by Sony in capturing the attention of the market and appealing to its customer base. The queue for the cheap anniversary version of the PlayStation 4 started at 6:30 p.m. the previous night. Sony's UK boss Fergal Gara, who was wearing a shell suit jackets in the shop like all the other staff there, also revealed there that Sony will be selling UK wide, online versions of the PlayStation 4 on 15th of December for anyone who wants to get their hands on the console.
He said that 80 percent of the allocated volume for sale will be sold online and also revealed that the stock of PlayStation's today was just shy of 200 units so basically we can expect about 800 units of the console to be sold online. He said:
"This is a three-day celebration here in London,But it wouldn't be fair to our fans across the country if there wasn't access available to them as well. He added. "We're very conscious of fairness. While it's nice to be able to celebrate here with a retro store, it is the thin end of the volume."
He also Revealed that there is no plan as of yet to make more of these limited edition of PlayStation's to be sold later. He said:
"There's no plan as yet. The volume is a close match with the original production run on PlayStation, so it's got a nice heritage story. They're very rare and they're very special. If you put it into mass production you dilute that. So right now, that's it. I'm not aware of any plans to change that."
So if you want to buy one, get yourself down to the London PlayStation '94 store tomorrow or be ready when the online sale goes live as it will only be possible in the initial few minutes.
