Hey, I'm Jake, an interactive media student at Newcastle college in the U.K, I like to write about video games in my spare time and have just recently started posting on the Dtoid community blogs. If you like any of the stories or opinions I post feel free to comment and get some good gaming discussion going!
Very shortly after the Future of Playstation even happened just minutes ago, U.K retailer ShopTo have immediately begun to take pre-orders. With the release date of the console set to feature somewhere in the holiday/Christmas period, retailers will certainly be looking at getting as many orders in as possible before launch.
The price set by ShopTo is currently sitting at £399.95 although clicking the order page shows a reduction from £449.95. This seems like a lot to pay although lighter than the PS3 launch price back in 2007 for the U.K.
The link shows a micro-site set up to promote the new hardware despite no actual pictures or footage of the box itself. Those who are brave enough can pre-order now and embrace the next gen, skeptics may want to wait till E3.
