There will be a high demand of AMD products in the coming months.
"The PS4 Sells Out Faster than Hotcakes at All Major Japanese Retailers; In Most Cases Within Minutes
by Giuseppe Nelva Oct 4th 2013 7:21PM
This morning between 7 and 7:30 AM local time the floodgates for preorders of the PS4 opened on most Japanese major retail websites. How fast did it sell out? Very, Very Fast.
All the Japanese online stores in which the console has gone up for preorder in the window mentioned above, including Amazon Japan, Yodabashi Camera, Bic Camera, Sofmap, Edion and Rakuten Books ran out of stock extremely fast. Some within mere minutes. Amazon Japan was the one to last the longest, for about 40 minutes.
Both bundles offered, one with a voucher to download Knack, and one with the game and a PlayStation Camera,simply disappeared from the virtual shelves like they never existed.
The screencap you can see below, from Amazon Japan, is just an example of what Japanese gamers who were too late are looking at as I’m writing. They’ll have to rely on the only two retailers that are going to start preorders later, Nojima at 10 AM and Joshin at noon. Most likely their stock is going to evaporate in minutes as well.
Despite the delay of the release to February the 22nd, looks like Japan in still in love with PlayStation.
Update – 9:00 Japan Time: Amazon Japan reopened preorders, probably after receiving a further allocation of units from Sony. We’ll see how long these will last. All other retailers are still completely sold out.
Update – 9:22 Japan Time: The bundle with the camera is now sold out again on Amazon Japan.
Update – 9:26 Japan Time: The box without the camera is gone again too. The second batch lasted less than the first.
Update – 10:00 Japan Time: Nojima opened preorders, and its server imploded."
What all the gullible stockholders are hardly NEVER given are NUMBERS - that part of the equation that runs companies to new heights or into the ground. In this case, the hypesters can con you in many ways. I exaggerate TO MAKE A POINT.
For example, if someone wanted to purposely hype AMD, they'd ALLOCATE 10 UNITS PER STORE (ZERO FOR ALL PRACTICAL PURPOSES) and then claim "SOLD OUT". You, being the mark, believe many things that might not be true - that 1. they have presold a cazillion units, when in fact, it could be near zero, and; 2. AMD has a high margin (profit) - none of which might be true.
Moreover, you probably missed the "DELAY" in shipping PS4s to FEBRUARY of 2014. There's a big hint of probable mfg problems - maybe caused by AMD's famous history of not delivering volume on time.
All these numberless cons are worrisome. AMD is famous for hype and poor execution - especially this time b/c AMD is short staffed AND games chips are AMD's most sophisticated chip ever. I'd be shocked of AMD had no serious bugs. Super fast graphics seem to stop everyone in their tracks. AMD is not even close to out of the woods in delivering massive numbers of flawless chips.
In my strong opinion, your AMD quotes mean NOTHING and are likely just more AMD hype. WATCH YOUR back side. Don't be gullible. We need NUMBERS, not many months of delays.
Your scenario is just so foolish and just plain stupid, I am not going to waste the effort to actually respond. Pathetic and desperate post. Wait for the numbers and enjoy the upward explosion coming from this stock! You just seem to be coming more unhinged witb every post! Funny to watch someone self destruct on a message board I will say...
