GameStop president Tony Bartel has said that demand for the PlayStation 4 has been quite strong since it was announced, according to Develop. GameStop is running a program that has people sign up to be the "first to know" about any new information or pre-order listings for the PlayStation 4. More than 600,000 people have signed up in just three weeks.

"With only a glance at the PS4, gamers are excited and eager to know more," said Bartel. "Within just a few weeks, more than 600,000 people have signed up, showing strong demand for this new console."

"The level of enthusiasm we’re seeing from GameStop customers demonstrates how the promise of PS4 is resonating with gamers, and we’re looking forward to unveiling more about the new platform in the coming months," said SCEA president and CEO Jack Tretton.

Sony announced the PlayStation 4 last month at a media event in New York City.

You can sign up on most retailers websites to be notified on when the PS4 will be available for pre order. (Amazon and Gamestop for example)

They are telling us that many have pre-order the PS4 without even knowing how it looks like? Gamestop is lying or they all have the graphics disease.

Not preorders, just that many people want to be notified when more info is available.

I don't understand this comment... are you saying they should care more of what the console looks like instead of what it does, the specs, the games, and the controller. Correct me if i'm wrong but that's a good thing not a"disease" as you say. That is what makes a gamer.
