Gaming addicts await PlayStation 4
(02-21 17:12)

Video game addicts in Japan who began lining up earlier this week will get their hands on a new PlayStation 4 today, when Sony finally unleashes its console on home turf.
The long-awaited Japanese launch comes after a stellar debut in the United States and Europe where more than 5.4 million units have been shifted since November, offering a bright ray of hope to Sony after years of gloomy sales of its key consumer electronics goods.
At midnight, the first 100 customers will be allowed to take home a new console from Sony Building, a flagship display venue in Tokyo's bustling district of Ginza, putting the lucky few fans hours ahead of a nationwide mass release.—AFP
