Am I Mad? (A PS4 Article)

November 26th, 2013 by Paul M. Ward Comments

So, in a few days, I have a day booked off for one thing, and one thing only. (Actually, make it two, I have tickets to go and see Sean Locke in concert with my wife that night too).

I will be trying to buy a PlayStation 4.

And I have NOT pre-ordered it yet.

Call it cynicism, or my futile attempt to fight the hype that invariably takes us all at one point, but until about 3 months ago, I hadn’t made any decision about when I would be getting my Playstation. And after I did commit to it, and checked my bank balance, I noticed that many places refused to guarantee a day-one console in stores. I ruled out online, as they have a caveat that it can be up to 5 working days later. And frankly, do you trust the mailman THAT much?

So, Friday 29th November will be a date to watch this space. Am I mad? Feel free to comment below, and I’ll let you know the results that night!

Having mis-spent so much of his life in the lands of Ancient Greece, Azeroth, Hyrule and Renaissance Italy, Paul has decided to put his adventures down in his own words. His interests include buying into hype, wallowing in childhood nostalgia and discussing with his wife, Michelle, why they need to get an army of kittens. (To become the next Bond villain, of course.)
