Next batch of PS4 consoles due to arrive in January

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

FOLLOWING the PS4’s official launch on December 21, which saw the revolutionary gaming console fly off the shelves at ETA Games, Gadong, customers may now register themselves on a waiting list for the next batch of units to be available in January 2014.

“On the first day the PS4 went on sale, we already sold out, as customers were mainly picking up their pre-booked consoles,” said Lanie Censzon, a sales representative.

The PS4 Asia version is priced at $695 and comes with the the Dualshock 4 controller, which features new innovations to deliver more immersive gaming experiences, including a highly sensitive six-axis sensor, as well as a touch pad located on the top of the controller, which offers completely new ways to play and interact with games. It also has the new “share” button, which puts video streaming and sharing just a tap away.

The PS4 marks the introduction of the eighth generation of gaming consoles. The PS4 system is centred around a powerful custom chip that contains eight x86-64 cores and a state of the art 1.84 TFLOPS graphics processor with 8GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 unified system memory, easing game creation and increasing the richness of content achievable on the platform. The end result is new games with rich, high-fidelity graphics and deeply immersive experiences.

“The rise in popularity of gaming in Brunei is now evident more than ever, as we have never experienced having a gaming console product completely sell out in one day,” said Lanie.

“Young gamers have grown up but remain as passionate as ever for gaming.”

“Consoles now, such as the PS4 is more than just a console. It has access to the Internet, which allows users to interact with other gamers while playing their games online, and also has a multimedia hub, among many other features,” she added.
