Matt Liebl, GameZone

Just in case you couldn't sense the confidence from Sony's camp by the announcement thatover one million PS4 consoles have been pre-ordered, Sony UK managing director Fergal Gara has reminded us that PS4 pre-orders are "breathtakingly high." In all fairness, it was brought up over conversation that Microsoft will be offering a free copy of FIFA 14 with the Xbox One.

"That's a robust promotion, I would say," Gara told Gamespot, adding, "We are not seeking to accelerate our preorders any further, to be honest. [PS4 preorders] are breathtakingly high as they are right now. We do not have a preorder problem. We will remain focused on value, and there's lots we can do around launch to make gamers feel looked after in a PS4 world."

When asked if he expects the PS4 to sell out, Gara responded, "It's highly likely there's going to be a shortage."
