Every Xbox One launch console is accounted for

by William Schwartz on October 21, 2013


xbox-one-controller

It’s starting to sound like the Xbox One might be tough to find at launch if you didn’t pre-order the console. For those thinking that they’ll be able to waltz in and pick-up the new hardware due to low demand, one Microsoft developer is saying that all consoles are accounted for, and that Microsoft has just as many pre-orders for the Xbox One as Sony has for the PlayStation 4.

Every console we made and will make until launch are accounted for

Over on Reddit, the official Xbox One thread saw a confirmed Xbox One developer relay the revealing news about the console.

“When I saw reports of Sony having a million or 1.5 million pre-orders for PS4, I didn’t even think twice about it. We’re not disclosing pre-order numbers at the moment for accounting reasons but I know for a fact we have just as many. Don’t be bogged by published statistics. At the end of all this, what matters is the games you want to play. Which games will people go back to over and over. Go with that. Look at the list of exclusive launch titles for each console.

I’m quite curious how Microsoft will put consoles on shelves at launch day given that almost every console we made and will make until launch are accounted for.”

Microsoft has yet to reveal an official tally for pre-order totals, but if this holds true, their may be some price gouging going on if the console is hard to find this holiday season.

    Nice! Still find it hard to believe that Sony Pony’s thought the Xbox One wasn’t going to sell at all. If people were crazy enough to spend $599 on a console with no games at launch (PS3), obviously there will be people willing to buy an Xbox One, which has games and a lot of cool functions, and at a cheaper price than the PS3.

    I cannot wait! Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Crimson Dragon, Forza 5, PowerStone Golf, LocoCycle and Zoo Tycoon will be mine on day one!

    • You are flat out wrong

      I always love the post-purchase rationalisation you have to do, even though the Bone isn’t even out yet. ^_^

      Still, all consoles accounted for is bad news for any uncommitted buyer looking for an Xbone on a shelf and being disappointed and getting a Wii U.

    • JP

      yeah after the 180 shocker

    • underworld

      That was before the change of policies. Obviously now the preorders will increase. Though the PS4 still looks like its going to sell quite a lot more.

      • I hate stupid ppl

        I don’t know if you know how to read maybe you don’t but anyway what proof do u have that the xbone is not going to out sell the stupid ps4? I’m curious of you work for Microsoft because only they truly know!

    • Mark Danger Hopps

      What would worry me if i was M$ is that bone is only launching in a fraction of the countries ps4 is yet has only just got to the point where all day one consoles are accounted for.

      PS4 was in this position months ago.

      Doesn’t effect me as a gamer but it’s an interesting fact.

      • mdrieber

        you cant exclude the fact that more countries isnt better….. they could launch in 20 more countries but that only equate to 100k more units because the countries theyre launching in are small purchasers…

        • Mark Danger Hopps

          Sony has around half a million more pre orders last time any figures where announced, the most telling factor is recently VGchartz announced Sony has more than 200’000 more pre orders in north america

      • Sideways_1M

        Why have you been downvoted for saying that X1 released in less countries than PS4? I really don’t get Xbots sometimes.

        • Mark Danger Hopps

          xbot’s are a strange immature breed mate

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            LOL

          • Sideways_1M

            Quick question Mark: Are you from the UK? And yes. They are immature, probably because they’re all 8.

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            Yeah man from the North east

          • Sideways_1M

            Just a londoner here. I guessed either Uk or Australia though, lol.

  • Facts First

    I’m glad there are actually games coming out for Xbox One and not just rehashed indie games and free to play pc stuff.

    • Crapgamer

      You read my mind! Since when are ported over PC free-2-play games something to buy a new console for? Same with indie games, those are supposed to complement big named titles, not be a selling point.

      • RoadShow

        It’s almost like you two are standing in a closet stroking each other….like most xbots you live in your own world and float each other’s boat because that’s all you got.

        • Him

          Have fun with knack

          • RoadShow

            Knack, Killzone, Battlefield, F2P library, the Playroom + 1 free PS4 game a month?

            Oh I sure as hell will!

          • Crapgamer

            So Knack and Killzone, with Killzone basically being unfinished. Free-2-play games that are on PC, and Play Room which is obviously centered towards casual gamer’s. Free game? I think you mean rented game, and it’s going to be indie games most likely for a while with that service.

            I get the anger, but take it out on Sony, not Microsoft fans.

          • RoadShow

            I freaking love how xbots like you try and act like PS+ is only a rental.

            I mean fine if you want to call it that but that’s really what a “subscription” is supposed to be.

            For 12 freaking years xbox live gave nothing. You fking still have to “rent” your rights to browse the net or to go buy a streaming subscription.

            You “rent” your features on xbox one like video capture/upload, skype, one guide and online play.

            Oh and if you really wanted to screw over Sony and keep the “rentals” then just unplug the console from the net after the subscription ends.

            And LMAO @ you trying to write off Killzone. There’s no sense in “debating” with an obvious xbot troll. I’ve seen far too many biased POS xbot posts from you to take you seriously.

          • Crapgamer

            This is the logic I never understood, most gamer’s pay to play online with multiplayer. Everything else is just bonus or moot because you’re already paying for multiplayer. So Sony fans change their outrage of how “wrong” it is for Microsoft to hide multiplayer behind a paywall now that Sony does it too. So the new outrage is other features being behind a paywall. I love how you Pony’s adapt.

            I still know quite a few people who are going to be in for a surprise when they try to play COD on PS4 and realize you need to pay to play. Going to be a lot of negative Sony sentiment.

            As for Xbox Live, we didn’t have “nothing” as you put it, it was the definitive service. I pay for Xbox Live because I like the service and features. They seem to care about making the online service as good as it can possibly be, and I trust it above all else. I’ve never not been able to log into Xbox Live in 8 years of service, can’t say that for PSN.

          • RoadShow

            I could break your fking nose for what you just said.

            IT IS YOUR FKING FAULT PS4 IS PAY TO PLAY A$$ HOLE. THAT IS THE FKING REALITY I HAVE TO DEAL WITH. YOU, GAME WEBSITES & GAME RETAILERS DIDN’T STAND UP FOR WHAT WAS RIGHT AND NOW FREE ONLINE PLAY IS DEAD.

            Look in the fking mirror when Nintendo goes pay to play and PC finds a way. Because of you true gamers that game on multiple systems are doomed to pay $180-$240 per year just to play online.

            (1) NOTHING ELSE IS PAYWALLED

            You can still play free to play online games, single player games, watch blu ray, use the internet browser, use streaming services, use video capture/upload, use spectate/take over mode all on PS4 without paying for PS+

            (2) We get 1 free PS4 game a month with PS+ where as Xbox live games with gold is only for 360 and really old games.

            Apparently you didn’t try to log into 360 in the 2 week downtime in 2007 or recently when it was down.

            As far as PSN updates I can usually log in and play online with them.

          • Crapgamer

            It’s funny that you have to look back 6 years to find when there were intermittent XBL outages when they were updating servers. At that time I still had no problems logging it. I’ve never had a problem logging into Xbox Live, EVER.

            I own multiple consoles now, but I don’t pay for anything other than Xbox Live. If I eventually buy a PS4, I wont pay for PSN+ because I play online games on Xbox Live. The Xbox One obviously has the better setup with their server system, Smart Match, Feedback system and reputation system. Sony doesn’t seem to care much about those things.

            Let’s look at those PSN+ games on PS4…ummm, there’s the indie game, the indie game, and the other indie game. With Games For Gold at least you get to keep the games, even if you stop paying for Gold. In fact, there were 70+ thousand players on Halo 3 last night, I’d consider that pretty successful.

            If you’re the type of gamer who captures gameplay, you’re going to have to pay to play online. You Sony gamer’s are the Liberals of the gaming world, think you’re owed everything for free. The fact of the matter is that PSN was a crappy network, but even so, it was expensive to run. Do you not realize how expensive online networks are to maintain? Sony had to eventually make something off the service, and hopefully that means they can improve it on PS4.

          • RoadShow

            It’s funny that only after 2 years of 360’s launch xbox live went down where as PS3 enjoyed 5 years with no hiccups.

            So a brand new launch console with 1 free game a month and you are complaining that some of them are indies? APPARENTLY YOU ARE THE ONE THAT THINKS YOU GET EVERYTHING FOR NOTHING.

            PSN is not crappy. You obviously don’t have a clue what you are talking about and only “think” xbox live is better because you piss out hard earned money for it.

            I COME FROM PC GAMING ONLINE

            PSN is every bit as smooth, fast and lag free.

            DON’T EVEN ACT LIKE XBOX LIVE DOESN’T HAVE PROBLEMS – Gears of War 2 was unplayable at times so many glitches, transporting & lag. Same as PS3 at launch Battlefield 3 was unplayable. Couldn’t drive down the damn road on 360.

            Where was you “superior” network then!?

          • Rj shpak

            you do realize that xbox live was launched way before the 360 was out? and when playstation did “hiccup” it was not only for a month but your credit card information was leaked

          • RoadShow

            I love you you xbots gotta LIE and blow things out of proportion.

            1ST OFF IT WAS 3 WEEKS. I SWEAR I’M JUST GONNA START LYING JUST LIKE YOU IDIOTS AND START SAYING XBOX LIVE WAS DOWN FOR 1 MONTH IN 2007 INSTEAD OF THE 2 WEEKS IT REALLY WAS.

            Dude fking spewing disinformation piece of $hit.

            2nd NO ONE LOST CREDIT CARD INFO. if any information was leaked it was encrypted, just in case anyone got anything Sony gave free credit protection.

            PSN – Down for 3 weeks. 2 highly ranked games as compensation (from a list of 5), weekend of HD movie rentals & free month of PS+

            XBL – Down for 2 weeks, 1 low ranked game as compensation. Tens of thousands accidently banned in 2011 on 3 seperate occasions, xbox live accounts hacked, microsoft points stolen, credit cards charged for more points which are also stolen.

            no one lost money in the PSN hack but xbox live customers have. Can hardly even find anything about people having problems on PSN but type in Xbox live account hacked and you get a million search results and all these users complaining.

          • bob

            Get a life.

          • mdrieber

            AHAHAHAHAHA!?!? been reading your troll spam for a few post now and you really just sounded insane when you tried saying psn was the same as xbl…. they arent even remotely comparable…. garbage players play on the playstation, it has no real competition, two major things needed for successful online multiplayer not counting the service itself was slow and laggy… you get what you pay for.

          • You are flat out wrong

            Oh no, DarkSydePhil and Pewdiepie will be playing on Xbone!

            Oh wait, good. Cancer containment console confirmed.

          • You are flat out wrong

            Oh no, DarkSydePhil and Pewdiepie will be playing on Xbone!

            Oh wait, good. Ultimate containment console confirmed.

          • Svon

            I just don’t get how people always call PS+ games “rentals”. Yes I understand that if you stop paying for Plus you can no longer access these games, but as a gamer, if you’re you’re paying for Live or Plus in the first place you’re most likely never going to stop renewing your subscriptions.

          • DarkMaturus

            Games for Gold is now permanent. Google it

          • RoadShow

            No $hit I was the first person to post about it on this site.

            (1) Great win for the gaming industry
            (2) Keep pushing M$ to get newer games & xbox one free games

          • You are flat out wrong

            Gotta keep the idiots paying for XBL somehow.

          • quinten488

            It dosen;t matter really, PS4 will dominate wither way.

          • Bobber

            Sony has commented many times that PSN costs a great deal to run. They lost about 3 billion with this last generation, why do you not want to help support them?

          • RoadShow

            I don’t think so. Playstation has made a profit for years. Yes they lost a lot of money initially but that was partially so that Sony could win the format war. Putting the blu ray in the PS3 was a ballsy move.

            PSN doesn’t need to be pay to play. Sony made money Playstation while maintaining servers, keeping AAA exclusives coming, keeping on giving free exclusive content in AAA multi plats and giving huge free games away with PS+.

            I do trust Sony to put that money back into the games though. Billions upon billions per year will be generated by PS+ just like xbox did. The difference is that the games will keep coming on PS4 unlike the last 4 years on 360 (even though M$ made 2.75 billion per year on XBL + revenue from ads on 360’s home page).

          • John

            I had PS+ bro. The free game per month is only good when your paying for the services. If you stop paying or cancel your PS+ service, all those free games you downloaded won’t play hahaha. Read the fine print.

            2007 is such a long time ago, talk about something more recent like the PSN being hacked in 2011. Really your still butt hurt after 6 years…move on man it happens.

            Also do yourself a favor…look at the mirror and bitch at yourself. Better yet, break your own nose for being the “A$$HOLE.” God you definitely got self esteem issues.

          • underworld

            I’m more than happy to continue to pay for PS+ to keep those games. You get so many big new games, like Far Cry 3, Dragons Dogma, Metal Gear Rising, etc. You can’t expect Sony to give those type of games out for free forever.

            I’d rather that than the old games you get with games with gold. Even if you can keep them forever.

          • quinten488

            Exactly, “at least we get to keep the games forever”, is the Xbots one defense lol.

          • RoadShow

            You are a freaking idiot. You are trying to blow off xbox live faults.

            What about all the accidental bans in 2011

            What about all the accounts that have gotten hacked, microsoft points stolen, credit cards charged for more points which are also stolen. This happens far more often than on PS3. I can’t even find much on PSN having these problems.

            The 2011 hack was almost 3 years ago and who cares how much time has passed. You are right though, 7 years is a long time. Too bad all the big titles on games with gold are from 2007 or earlier.

            And like I keep saying. If you really want to keep those games then keep the PS3 off the net after the sub runs out. Pretty sure that would work.

            paying $50/yr for a “subscription” of 64 games each year is FAR better than paying $60/yr for access to your internet browser and for the “right” to go and “purchase” a second subscription to a streaming service such as Netflix.

          • mdrieber

            im not sure that ive ever paid $60 a year for xbl… i actually pay about $35 and even at points MS themselves have sells that have lowered the 1 yr subscription down to around $30

          • mdrieber

            *sales

          • whytheFnot

            You’re essentially making the age old “macs have less viruses” argument. I could hack a PSN account just as easily as I could an XBL account, but I have to gain by doing so, therefore less PSN accounts get hacked. Also, the “hacking” is used quite liberally here, because it’s more to do with getting control of someone’s email by brute forcing it or getting the jackasses security question.

          • RoadShow

            Yes yes I know. It doesn’t matter. No one lost money in the Playstation hack, no real reports of playstation customers losing money while all over the news for months at a time on seperate occasions are reports of customers losing money due to “hacks” on XBL.

            You and I…we realize this is really phishing schemes but the fact is xbox live has been in the news more about customers losing money than PSN has in the potential someone could have taken encrypted data.

            Between the accidental bans, tens of thousands of xbox live accounts losing money & xbox live 2 week down time with 1 low ranked game as compensation are all far worse than the PSN hack which no one lost money and great compensation was paid.

          • Eric

            LOL SONY FANBOY ANGRY!!!!

            “IT IS YOUR FKING FAULT PS4 IS PAY TO PLAY A$$ HOLE”
            First of all, It’s actually Sony’s fault since they made it that way. Hop off Sony’s dick please. Second, the saying “you get what you pay for” applies to many things, and this is no exception. Sure xbox has a fee for online service, but for 60$ a year (keg in mind that is 5$ a month) you get the features you listed above, in addition to excellent online multiplayer gaming that certainly trumps that of psn. Why would someone be content with mediocre service when they can upgrade to great service by just putting aside a 5$ bill each month. And don’t talk about a 2 week outage in 2007 for the xbox cuz I pretty sure sony had an outage of a month (and had 77 million accounts stolen, making it one of the largest security breaches in history.) just a couple of years ago. Man that’s crazy, one of the largest security breaches was on a console with a shitty online service.

            As for the games with gold feature, it hasn’t been released whether or not the xbox one will receive the feature, so there is a possibility, and anyways with ps4. I hope that you don’t really believe that you will be getting the best titles very month or something like its Christmas every month. It probably will be a game that is relatively old compared to other titles that are out, so the game won’t even be played that much anyways. So idk why you included that fact unless you truly are blind as to what is going on around you lol.

            When was it down recently? I have played Xbox online everyday for the last 6 years. My service was never down.

          • RoadShow

            last month, I looked it up and it looks like it was the 15th of September.

          • David Do0M

            I played everyday in September.Live was not down.

            Dude, I think you need a life.

          • LiquidSword

            “This is the logic I never understood, most gamer’s pay to play online with multiplayer”

            There are 80 million Xbox 360 consoles out there and only 45 million are paying XBL customers. I don’t know where you went to shcool or if you went to school but 45 million out of 80 million is not “most gamers”. That’s 35 million out of 80 million that don’t pay for XBL and can’t access features that are free EVERYWHERE else.

          • TinyBot

            actually 48 million paying and not everyone still uses their xbox. I bought an xbox but don’t play anymore but that still counts toward that 80 mil number

          • LiquidSword

            Therefore you have lost the ability to use cross game chat and other free features on Xbox. Thanks for proving my point.

          • randomize

            you cannot cross game chat on ps3 unless its in text chat.

          • mdrieber

            ahahahaha…. there is such a significant difference in comparing the amount of consoles to the amount of subscriptions…. there will NEVER BE a console that has a 1:1 ratio for console to subscriptions…. i have 2 360s but i never use one… why would i pay for multiple subscriptions??? the fact that the rate is almost 50% alone speaks for itself

          • You are flat out wrong

            “Oh no, servers need to be maintained occasionally!!!”

            Xdrones gonna have to do better than that!

          • underworld

            And I never understand that kind of logic, and you miss the point.

            All those other features are not a “bonus”. Those features should be free. I mean come one, the Internet browser is locked behind gold. Lol, that’s just really ridiculous. And why should you have to pay to acces Netflix, which you already pay for?

            This is what annoys me about so many Xbox fans. You’re so willing to put up with crap like that.

            If most gamers pay to play online and all the other stuff is just a bonus, then why not make all that stuff free so people who don’t play online can still access it?

            There are many people that don’t have gold, including me. Shouldn’t have to pay to access basic features.

          • Mattress

            To my mind, rental and subscription both mean the same thing. When you stop paying for the service then you can’t play the games anymore.

          • RoadShow

            Well I’d much rather pay a subscription for online play and free PS4/PS3/PS Vita games than a subscription for access to basic features.

          • quinten488

            Yep their jealous that they only get to play Halo 3 and R6 Vegas while PS+ gives out all the best games.

          • Sideways_1M

            What the hell do you mean “unfinished”?

          • quinten488

            PS4 will dominate, the fact that you’re trying to downplay PS+ cause you know its better than GWG is pathetic. I get to play BF3,Darksiders,Ico and Shadow, Far Cry 3 and GWG gives you Halo 3 and Rainbow Six Vegas hahaha don’t make me laugh.

        • Crapgamer

          So you try to put us down, but offer no debate on the subject at all? I mean I’m all for debating a bit, and if I’m wrong I have no problem admitting that. In my personal opinion I don’t get excited over ported free-2-play games or indie games. I don’t buy new consoles to play those. Sony delayed Drive Club, and they should really delay Killzone because it’s obviously unfinished, no split screen and no co-op at launch.

          It’s called freedom of speech, you donkeys.

          • RoadShow

            WTF you even talking about? Freedom of speech?

            Xbox live on X1:

            *Rent your rights to purchase a streaming subscripton.
            *Rent your ability to use the internet browser.
            *Rent the video capture feature.
            *Pay an additional subscription to use one guide on your cable subscription.
            *Rent the cross game chat feature.
            *Rent access to online multiplayer.

            X1 without Xbox live:

            *Single player games
            *Watch blu rays

            PS+ on PS4:

            *Rent access to online multiplayer but get 1 free game a month on PS4+free PS3 games+free PS Vita games. Oh and + free exclusive content on AAA multi plats. Content that is FREE and content that is EXCLUSIVE.

            PS4 without PS+:

            *Single player games
            *Watch Blu rays
            *Use internet browser
            *Use Streaming services
            *Use video capture/upload
            *Use cross game chat
            *Use spectate/take over mode
            *Free to play online games

            Xbox is basically a brick without xbox live and no free games on x1 nor free exclusive content.

      • Mattress

        Completely agree. I love those types of games but I don’t buy a new console for them. X1 will have plenty of indies by the end of its life cycle. The 360 had more indies than I could afford (both time and money wise) to get through

          And PS4 will have PLENTY of big AAA exclusives.

          I really don’t get why Xbox fans go on about the few big exclusives at launch. Buying a console is an investment for years.

          I don’t trust Microsoft to keep the big exclusives coming till the end.

          • Mattress

            Because there is no reason to purchase a brand new console right now if you don’t have any good AAA titles. I agree it is a long term investment. But without quality AAA titles now then you may as well wait a year and get a PS4 next Xmas when the inevitable price drop occurs.

            For me on the X1, there are must have titles like Ryse, DR3, Titanfall coming out in the launch window which is why I’m buying one before next years price drop.

          • quinten488

            Lmao, idiot the ps4 won’t be dropping price in a year or even three years

          • quinten488

            I agree, PS4 will dominate because M$ will not be able to keep the AAA exclusives coming because they don’t own half as many studios as Sony does.

      • underworld

        Why do you Xbox fans continue to go on about this? Oh yes, Sony only has free-2-play and indie games planned. My gosh. Buying a new console is an investment for many years to come, not for the launch games! Sony always does exclusives really well. Not gonna change with the PS4.

        How do you know Microsoft won’t abandon big exclusives like they did with the 360? At least we know Sony will continue the great exclusives right up till the end.

    LOL no PS gamer said Xbox wouldn’t sell. We just know that it’s not going to beat PS4…not by a long shot.

    • Crapgamer

      I’ve seen Pony’s say it would sell less than the Wii U. I don’t work for any company, so as long as it sells well enough to continue on I’m happy. I honestly think the companies themselves get a kick out of fanboys treating console sales like a race. IF for the sake of argument purposes the Xbox One beats the PS4 in sales, does that diminish the fun you’re going to have with the PS4? Just like if the PS4 sells more it wont diminish the fun I’ll have with my Xbox One.

I don’t like ps multiplayer u can’t tell if u playing humans or bots lol. N now ps4 really has no games at this time so I’m wait n get Xbox 1. N nerds stop comparing these machines to PC makes no sense did they do these when Nintendo first came out no. N yall should be lucky that consoles still exist thats only reason PC gets big exclusive games because gives reason for dev make games. I don’t think u see a line at GameStop or bestbuy for gt5 on PC lol

  • shikamaru317

    This is bittersweet if true. I’m happy that the Xbox One is doing this well, but sad that I won’t be able to get one till after Christmas, since I wasn’t able to save up enough money before the Day One preorders were all gone. I was hoping that Microsoft’s earlier claims that about having stock in retail stores at midnight were true so that I could get in line early and grab one.

    • shikamaru317

      While I’m not sure that the Xbox One has as many preorders as the PS4, as this dev claims, it’s definitely gaining on the PS4. VGchartz announced today that the Xbox One has gained another 175,000 preorders in the US since August. Day One editions are high on all of Amazon’s country specific bestsellers charts, and Standard edition preorders are high in the US, Canada, and the UK. Microsoft is definitely gaining ground, which can only be a good thing for Sony, regardless of rather or not the Sony fans realize. Competition will keep Sony from getting lazy, look at what happened to Intel when AMD fell drastically behind, their new CPU generations have nowhere near the performance gains over the previous generation that they once did.

      • underworld

        What are you talking about? Yeah, VGChartz says the X1 has gained a little on the PS4, but I think that was to be expected after they reversed their policies. But the PS4 has 38% more preorders. That’s big considering it’s the US. I can’t see X1 passing the PS4 in the U.S. And I don’t beileve they have as many preorders either.

        And the X1 launch and standard editions aren’t high on all the amazon sites. And the hourly charts change all the time. What are you looking at?

        Hourly Charts:

        US:
        X1: 12
        PS4: 14

        UK:
        PS4: 1
        X1: 27

        Canada:
        PS4: 1
        X1: not in the top 100.

        Best of 2013 chart:

        US:
        PS4: 8 and 39
        X1: 12 and 91

        UK:
        PS4: 4
        X1: 36 and 45

        Canada:
        PS4: 1 and 90
        X1 Day One: 7

        And in Australia, double the amount of people intend on buying a PS4 compared to X1 according to Roy Morgan Research. Can’t put the link.

        I’m not saying the X1 won’t sell well at launch. Just think PS4 will sell quite a lot more.

        • RoadShow

          Exactly. Considering 360 has been more popular in the US for a long time it says a lot that PS4 pre-orders in that territory are so much further ahead.

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            Yep.

        • Lacerz

          What’s not included in Amazon’s Best of 2013 (so far) list are the five PS4 bundles. Killzone, Knack, Watch Dogs, Battlefield, and DS4 were all sold as separate skus. Xbox One didn’t have any additional skus.

        • shikamaru317

          I never said that it was ranked higher than the PS4, just that it was ranked high, the Day One edition is ranked in the Top 100 on every Amazon year so far chart. Also, the reason the Xbox One is not on Amazon Canada’s hourly charts is because it is completely sold out. Here is the yearly placing for the Xbox One on Amazon France and Germany:

          Germany
          Day One: 22 (still available)
          Standard: Not currently ranked

          France
          Day One: 44 (still available)
          Standard: Not currently ranked

          That’s some pretty good Xbox One placing if you ask me, particularly in France and Germany where the Playstation has always been Top Dog, the FIFA bundle has paid off for Microsoft big time there. If you look at the Xbox One’s placing on all of the yearly charts, and compare it to the sales of games that are ranked similarly, as well as the information from VGchartz that the Xbox One has 525,000 preorders in the US alone with a month to go, it looks like Microsoft passed 1 million preorders worldwide sometime early this month, only about a month and a half behind when Sony announced that the PS4 passed 1 million. I don’t think that the Xbox One will surpass the PS4, at least not early on, though Microsoft could win long term if they make smart decisions.

          • James

            But you would expect the console to sell anyway consider both countries and other European countries has their share of fans or fanboys. The interesting thing will be how well it does with non-gamers or parents buying a console to their kids

            PS4 are no longer available for quite some time now and pre ordering now will only get you the console in january. Xbox one and even day one edition are easily available. Now the question is either PS4 is extremly more popular or MS is managing their stock a lot better than sony.

          • shikamaru317

            Hard to tell if the fact that the PS4 is sold out in a lot of places is because of high demand or low supply. It seems like Microsoft could have managed their stock a bit better to me. They apparently underestimated the demand in Canada, as both the Day One Edition and Standard edition are sold out on Amazon Canada, the Standard edition didn’t even make the Top 100 there before it sold out. They probably should have allocated more Day One editions to the UK as well, even though it sold out there it only made it to 35th place on Amazon UK’s charts. They probably allocated too many Day One editions to France and Germany since the Day One is still available there, despite being sold out elsewhere for months, though I can see why they wanted to make sure there was stock available there since they’re trying to break into a Playstation heavy market by bundling FIFA.

          • James

            I can say the demand is high and people are selling their pre-orders for a lot more than the 400€. But I think sony are really struggling with stock or maybe they decided to put most consoles in NA and UK knowing that other parts of the world is pretty much their territory. A bit arrogant but an expected move by Sony if thats true.
            I think you’re right about MS allocating too many X1 to France, Germany and the likes. They were probably thinking like Sony assuming that they owned NA and UK.

            I think who will take the early lead will mostly depend on stock management because there is demand for both systems.

      • Lacerz

        Amazon isn’t offering any PS4s. They sold out a while back. So comparing an hourly chart where one product is being offered and another isn’t doesn’t really give you an accurate representation of system pre-orders.

  • Ste

    Tesco have today informed me that even though I pre ordered the console in June that I won’t get one as they have run out of the 5000 consoles they was allocated by Microsoft. Total bollocks

    The guy at a local Gamestop told me the PS4 was outselling xbox by 3 to 1. At his store.
    He also said they weren’t given as many xbox ones. Apparently low allocation numbers to most stores, when compared to ps4.
    So who knows if Microsoft had production issues? I don’t know.

  • James McCarthy

    Everyone just needs to calm the fuck down. Its a video game console. Supposed to be fun, not rip the goddamn community apart!!!

  • thor77789

    All I can say is that multiplayer is so much funner on Xbox, n that isn’t just a fan based opinion. I’ve played on both systems and still find it better. N as for psn cross game chat, it took 4 systems for them to make a legit chat system. Xbox did it in one and there’s is still better. Ps4 has nothing new/big to add to the plate. It’s just a newer system, with a newer look, n better graphics. All the specs are the same except for the speed, and the difference in the speed is that ps4 can be upgradeable. 8 gig RAM is insanely fast, and there is no need to upgrade for that reason, not to mention who is actually going to upgrade it. Xbox has so many new features and although they may not have a lot of exclusives now, that will give them time to work on bettering there’s instead of rushing to release famous Sony games already with flaws. And as for sales, Xbox pre order sales are in the lesser, but not by a lot, most of which is due to the extra money people gotta cough cause I’ve read plenty reviews saying that. If Xbox was 400 like Sony, it’ll crush Sony on sales.

    • underworld

      Lol, that was a funny read. X1 might outsell PS4 in the US in the future, though I don’t think it will. But there’s no chance it’s going to outsell it worldwide. If PS3 can beat 360 worldwide, then X1 isn’t going to beat PS4.

      I have both systems and I find both fun online.

      The PS4 has nothing new/big to add? Lol. And what’s the X1 got? TV? Man, that’s good. I haven’t been able to watch TV before.

      PS4 can’t be upgraded so why are you talking about the RAM? Lol. The HDD can be upgraded, unlike the X1. And PS4 is more powerful.

      Give the X1 a few years and the exclusives will be no more, like with the 360.

      • thor77789

        You’ve misread what I wrote. I admitted that ps4 ram can be upgraded. N yes watching tv may not be new but it’s something new added to the system, ps4 doesn’t have anything new to add besides gaming and cross chat which the first Xbox did. Again, Sony fans will say anything. These are facts. Multitasking is also something new added to the system. I didn’t hear u mention anything new, so u proved my point. Ps4 iseessentially a 3 with better graphics, speed n look. That is all.

    I think ps2 was a classic and individual system. After that they just keep comparing to Xbox and focusing on being better instead of.creating an idea of there own. They lost originality. That is y id prefer the Wii u and Xbox, they think outside of the competition box and create new ideas.

    I like how sony fans complain about xbox fans whining, and how xbox fans complain about how sony fans whining but from the comments below you are all bitching about the same thing. You think your system is better simply because you own that system.

    ps4 has been impossible to get for over a month. Took me over 2 weeks of subscribing to alerts to when they were in stock to finally get one. They would sell out in less than a minute at Walmart and Kmart. At least xbox users will get 3 servers a piece to store their data the way every message board is filled with people switching over. Titan fall is the only xbox game that i would like to play. Other than that xbox exclusives are garbage, halo bores me, yes i said it.
