Online retailer Zavvi has warned customers to whom it accidentally sent a video games console that they could face legal action if they have not arranged the machines' return.
The UK firm mistakenly delivered PlayStation Vitas to shoppers who had ordered a £20 game released last month.
There was little doubt that the PlayStation 4 would sell well on launch given the sheer amount of hype, but we now have proof:
Sony has revealed that it sold over one million PS4s in North America during the console's first 24 hours of availability. While that figure pales in comparison to the sales numbers we see for smartphones, it gets the company a long way toward its goal of moving five million units before the end of its fiscal year in March.
Just as the launch date of PlayStation 4 comes closer, Sony has surprised potential customers by updating their Software Usage Terms to disallow resell or renting of all PlayStation games unless authorized by them and the publisher in case it is not Sony.
Sony started off as the good guy against Microsoft's Xbox One by announcing support for game-lending and resale at the E3 2013 conference back in June. No-DRM was also a key point of Sony's PS4 presentation. However, Sony has updated the Software Usage Terms for the UK and backtracked on the claims it had made earlier.
Amazon has posted an image to their Facebook page as pointed out by our forum member Lone Wanderer Chicken, showing one of their warehouses where a huge stockpile of PlayStation 4 consoles has arrived and is ready to ship to customers.
Gamers who pre-ordered the PS4 from Amazon will be delighted to see that that the online retailer is already stocked up and ready for launch day shipments of the eagerly awaited device.
By our count, the massive Ultimate FAQ that Sony posted today regarding the PS4 answers 191 questions about the system, ranging from the essential (“When does PS4 come out in different countries and regions?”) to the trivial (“Does PS4’s graphical user interface have a name like the PS3 system’s ‘Cross Media Bar’?”)
