Amazon Holds PS4 vs Xbox One Vote, PS4 Winning By Embarrassingly Insane Ratio

Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, has a huge multiplatform fanbase with allegiances to both parties, so their audience’s reaction to the Xbox One must be sending chills down Microsoft’s spine. - PSLS (E3, PS4, Xbox One)

Now is the time to show them you can make your own choices, yes my fellow gamers the Revolution will be fought, not out in a cold, blood soaked battlefield, but in out living rooms, and our hearts and minds ! Yay tho they have not listened to our voices ! The sound you make with your wallets shall be deafening !! Arise, arise !!!!

i really have to move my ass and pre-order one before i will regret it!!!
these numbers are scary, Sony have been in a dream world since february and now it's even bigger.
next Gamescom and then TGS! big things will be announced there and with all this situation around xbox japanese for sure aren't gonna support it!

Just preordered my PS4... walked i to a conversation
With someone who preordered the Xbox one, The sales rep at gamestop let it slip that of the 100 Xbox one and PS4 spots up for preordered, PS4 has 88, spots filled verses the 22 spots filled for MS's all in one entertainment system, I became spot number 89. People aren't happy with MS's 180° turn with it's fanbase, which is why Sony's conference resonated. Everyone got hyped for the halo 5 teaser for the Xbox one, but when MS said Nov 2013 at $499 for the Xbox one availability with all that DRM bs the tune was no clapping.

I know a couple people at work who are going with the PS4 this time around.

Things just aren't looking good for Microsoft in general:

- Windows 8 is not capturing peoples attention
- Windows Phones are not very popular
- Xbox One looks to be a flop
- Google Chrome and Firefox seem to be the browsers of choice with most people I talk to
- Open Office software is growing in popularity as is Google Docs
- Games for Windows Live is a complete failure
- Valve is helping to bring Linux to the forefront
- Microsoft Surface hasn't caught on with consumers
- Gmail is far more popular than Outlook
- the Zune was a failure

Balmer is wrecking Microsoft, and theres nothing that anyone can do about it lol

Goes on to amazon ordered a ps4

I am back, no MS I want to be able to play my system offline which is next gen and actually mores powerful than the one which is the weaker one

How many jokes could we come up about the one?

Now that was sarcasm

the PS2 days were horrible... innovation had stalled for the most part and Sony purposely sabatoged Dreamcast forums and fan sites... it was really bad back then.

That's fair I guess, the xbox 360 did have an amazing start, it later tapered off and PS3 has been the go to console for the past 3-4 years, only people who never owned a 360 would say it has always sucked but the truth is, it didn't, when it was first launched it was actually pretty awesome, PGR, Dead Rising, Halo, the first Gears, it was actually pretty great, but then it just started to tank and I returned to the Playstation world and got a ps3, and I'm glad I did...

GnarlyCharlieOx  +   777d ago
360 started right? 54.2% fail rate because they rushed it out to get ahead of sony. Microsoft has always been about $$$ and not the consumer.

Part of those sales in the beginning are probably due to people having to buy multiple 360s. I'm on my 3rd right now actually, and its an elite with a custom fan. Had to make sure it wouldn't overheat...

They fucked up last gen too, just not enough to lose their dedicated fan boys like they did this year. Plus they had a year lead on sony which made a HUGE difference in the beginning even though it was a rushed out unfinished product.

This really isn't surprising, based on what both sides have to offer.

What *is* surprising is that Microsoft is going to lose their dominance over North America (and England). Having the American market is always what kept them going last gen...that will be no more...

...and be $100 more expensive...

...and have restricting DRM that makes you feel as if you don't own your own games...

...and be 50%-66% less powerful than the PS4.

Number #1, Number #2

It really doesn't matter. It seems both consoles will sell out at launch. And if MS feels like they need a little more "umph", they can drop the price of the Xbox One to $399 with the snap of a finger. Its not like they don't have the money to take that hit.

Who knows. Maybe that was their plan all along.

Anything can happen in 6 months, I'm not making any predictions on who will overtake who yet. Too early to tell.
NatureOfLogic  +   777d ago
@ LOGICWINS, So MS would drop their price and take a significant loss only so they can go head to head against the PS4 which clearly has the upper hand right now? If anything that would only just expedite MS's decision to departure from the consoles business. I believe right now that PS4 could have a higher price and still greatly outsale Xbox one. It's not all about price like some you believe. Does price matter? of course it does, but a matching price point with the PS4(currently in favor) won't win MS much compared to the losses they would be taking.

This is MS, not Sony. They can actually AFFORD to take a significant loss if that means preventing the loss of market share going into this generation. Sometimes you have to go through hell to get to heaven. MS can't let Sony pound them into a hole so deep that they can never come back from.

I don't see why it should matter that Xbox One is at #2. It's a new piece of technology. Wii-U was at #1 sales for a while.

I mean, Amazon doesn't sell hundreds of thousands of items at a time. Xbox One could be at #2 with a mere 1 million preorders. The bigger issues is the rumored supply constraints and manufacturing problems that the X1 is (supposedly) dealing with right now.
NatureOfLogic  +   777d ago
@ LOGICWINS, You do realise that MS is a corporation, and Xbox is only a games division within that corporation. Let's also not forget that most in that corporation(MS) are against the games division to begin with. So your're telling me that MS's games division will go to the rest of the corporation and say, "Hey, look guys, we want to take a major loss on Xbox one simply because we can AFFORD to, and fall back on all this corporation profit we've just made, only so we don't lose a few gamers". It makes no sense whatsoever.
Toon_Link  +   776d ago
Yeah I'm amazed after all the backlash people are still buying it. But at the same time it could be a lot of people trying to make a buck flipping the console if it does actually sell out during the holidays.

" they can drop the price of the Xbox One to $399 with the snap of a finger. Its not like they don't have the money to take that hit. "

Microsoft is not interested in taking no significant hit. MS sole interest is to get as much money out of people as they can.
NateCole  +   776d ago
Yes because MS still has a huge userbase.

So initially we will see sales to be close because there will still be millions of xbox fans willing to take the plunge but after them it will be bleak for MS while Sony will keep getting new and converted fanbase.
dcbronco  +   776d ago

You're making the assumption that $399 would be sold at a loss for MS. Considering they use a cheaper GPU and much cheaper RAM(probably by close to $100 on the RAM alone) dropping to $399 would most likely be breaking even. Sony should be making a slight profit. But $399 would, at worse be a slight loss for MS. And considering all of the possibilities with their design for other revenue that PS4 can't do, that would be small change. $499 is about MS making a profit day one. And MS have more room to drop price over the long haul.

LOL I love how people just throws around the fact that MS has money
but forgets that SONY on a WHOLE as an entertainment conclomerate business is not hurting or going out of Business! a company that has 13.7 billion dollars in cash and credit reserves isn't a cheap company in any comparison.

Yes Logic. MS can take a hit and drop the price of the XBOX one, but Sony can as well, given that SCE is apart of SONY Corp, They can tap into that nearly 14 billion dollars if things get dire for the whole company! Given how the PS brand was the only thing for 5 years making Sony profitable even after the PS3 depleted most of the profit made from the PS2 era, Sony still managed to launch a machine that does much of the same the Xbox One and comes in cheaper and more powerful.

If price wars is what you think MS can do, dont forget that Sony can do it too. They are valued quite high as a business and got plenty to fall back on in reserves to keep the company bringing in a profit. And Sony has more coming in with this Production cycle given the PS3 is making a profit and the PS4 isn't costing them much to produce.

Sony is on its last knees! Samsung destroyed the TV market..... They are nothing in cell phone market, apple owns mp3 players, its only the PS for them now! This is it for them..... PS4 will save them no doubt.. But do not tell me Sony are as big as MS.... Not even close.... I have had all 3 playstations, do not get me wrong, not a fanboy, but people should be careful what they wish for. Having MS in the console business stimulated the industry, forced it forwards, made Sony step up, and they did, but if there was no competition, it would be bad. If Sony had no competition, you would not be getting your dream machine, dream E3 as they would not care, they would own you, tell you what is best for you. Be careful. Glad I have options... Pre ordered xbox1 already, was sold out day before my eb games officially supposed to take order... No luck on PS4 though.... Kinda glad.... Wife already mad over buying one as it is..... Life....

Sevir you know Sony money comes with a huge helping of debt. And at extremely high interest rates because of their junk bond stock rating. Sony hasn't been selling assets because they could afford to throw away money. They sold their HQ because they badly needed money and couldn't get it from a bank.

You're the one throwing around numbers. Sony's financial problems are widely known and a few links can prove that. MS is far from having any money problem. Unless what to do with all the --cking cash is really a problem.

Nonsense sooner or later they will buy our X1 no matter what.
A month later passed by at M$ office
Guys we have failed miserably. PS4 completely dominated our X1 sales. What are we going to do?
Guy in the back:Get rid of DRM,online requirements and lower the price.
But we can't do that because that will anger our partners,developers and publishers and we don't want that do we?
Guy in the back: But they won't buy our console will they huh? It's the customers the gamers that do and we completely ignored them.

Well MS nailed the entertainment part of the console because this is hilarious.
chadboban  +   777d ago
Microsoft deserves this and every bit of negative backlash the they have gotten due to their insane anti-consumer policies.

I have never actively avoided a system or told someone to not purchase a system because we're all different and have different tastes in games and all consoles offer different experiences. But damn, unless microsoft changes it's policies this will be the first time that I ever advise anyone to not purchase a system. This is NOT about games, it is about our rights as consumers.
Ilovetheps4  +   777d ago
That's how I am. I don't try to bash the xbox 360 because it doesn't affect me if you buy a 360. But if the X1 is really successful, then it will affect me because Sony might implement the same policies in their next machine.
chadboban  +   777d ago
Agreed 100%. If it is successful, video game purchases will now become glorified rentals, where we the buyer don't actually own our on disk games. I don't want this to be the future of video games.
DaPrintz  +   776d ago
I have a feeling the X1 will do well in their 1st week....That is until the mainstream realizes what they just bought and what they can't do with the games they bought. How many times have you been to GameStop and some kid is trading games for more used games? Once the parents realize they got f@cked, it's over for Microsoft.

Whilst this seems like a large gap, pre-orders are telling a different story at the moment. In-terms of it certainly not being a 1 to 18 gap.

When the ps3 launched I actually waited in line all night cause I remember how hard it was to find a 360 and I already preordered a wii. And would you believe every single person in line besides me was talking about all the money they were going to make off reselling on eBay. There were even people constantly checking eBay and watching preorder bids go up and up.

Wile I'm not saying everyone that preordered the One are flipping the console, I am saying there is money to be made if the console is in short demand during the holiday season and I got a feeling some people are willing to capitalize on people's need for the latest and greatest.

You might be on to something. Reason why, look at where the X1 controller is on the list. Also, Forza is the only game on the list at #20.
rainslacker  +   776d ago
Not really sure what that has to do with anything. If they're buying it to flip it, then there would need to be a 2nd buyer to purchase the flipped item. Hence, demand is the same.

If it's like the Wii U though, where supply is not as limited as people thought it would be, then your theory holds weight. But all indicators are pointing to PS4 being a sell out item this holiday.

I've personally got two on preorder. One immediately after the conference through amazon(GameStop was closed and wanted to secure it). Then one a couple days later with my local gamestop(luckily they opened up more, was sold out the day after when I went in after work). I will probably sell the 2nd one to a friend that isn't able to secure a preorder for whatever reason, or they just don't do that kind of thing. I'll be nice and just charge them what I payed because I like my friends. If I can't do that, I'll post it on ebay, or return it.
Toon_Link  +   776d ago
@rainslacker I totally agree with you. I'm not trying to say people will or will not want the new consoles I'm only saying that there are people always looking to make a quick buck and all the preorders can't be totally for day 1 buyers so therefore preorders selling out isn't a great representation of the consoles demand.

rainslacker  +   776d ago
I have a couple 360 friends who I would consider fan boys, and they hate what MS is doing. They asked me about it after their reveal, because they don't really keep up with this stuff. I know at least one of them is getting a PS4, and the other will probably follow since they play games together.

So far at work it's been all PS4 among the gamers there. I won't deny I may have pushed that a bit, but most people asked me about it when this stuff started getting out there...which didn't actually take long.

Both Bestbuy and Futureshop in canada are sold out of the pre orders for PS4 but both have stock for day one editions of xbox one.
killswitchmad  +   777d ago

That is an insane result so far....

Personally I'm still so undecided, I love my 360 and I'm so invested in the M$ owned IP's that it's difficult to tear myself away but at the same time the steps M$ are taking to ensure we can't do things with the games we own are just dirty...

It's a shame because I REALLY REALLY want Killer Instinct but not if I have No friends to play it with!
The Meerkat  +   777d ago
That's the real problem for MS.
When all your friends have a PS4 you have to join them.

This gen was pretty much 50:50 so it wasn't that much of a problem for MS
Next gen could be more like 20:80 and then the devs go PS exclusive and the MS downward spiral continues.
Ilovetheps4  +   777d ago
I understand that it's tough when you have played mostly one companies games. But about Killer Instinct, just remember that it won't be like any other game. It's going to be a free game in which you have to buy all of your characters and stuff. If you want that sort of game, then by all means buy it. But I just wanted to remind you of that.
killswitchmad  +   777d ago
See that's not a problem for me as I can understand the decision behind it, most fighting enthusiasts tend to stick to just a couple of characters so in that respect the game could end up being very cheap...
BlackTar187  +   776d ago
Kill im a fighter gamer and my only problem is i like to test all the characters before settling. So hopefull by the time i get Xbone this game will have a retail copy for like $40 or something
Snookies12  +   776d ago
The problem with Killer Instinct is that it's not made by the same devs who did the others. It's not even being done by Rare. :\

It's being made by devs who have a pretty bad track record on the quality of their games. So I wouldn't put much faith in it if I were you. (This coming from a HUGE fan of Killer Instinct sadly.)
dboyman  +   776d ago
Plus only Jago is free to play on launch day. Everyone else — unspecified returning characters as well as original fighters — will cost money. Price is to-be-determined (of course).

So they are nickel and diming you to play that game. Yeah you get Killer Instinct game finally, but all the other fighters are extra dlc content. Its worse than Capcom and their dlc for games
CRAIG667  +   776d ago
Do you expect the whole game to be free or something?
dboyman  +   776d ago
@CRAIG667 No But least have more than just 1 fighter included. But I rather pay and have a complete game or semblance of a complete game.

dennett316  +   777d ago
UK tabloid The Sun held a similar poll, and the results were just as in favour of Sony. Polls on a few other gaming sites are saying the same sort of thing.
Tegrogg  +   777d ago
Okay after watching the press conference, reading articles, reading comments on many different sites, I cannot just sit back and not post a comment ...

It needs to be some sort of balance

In the beginning I was totally sold on the PS4 to be my gaming device, but that was before the Xb1 announcement . I told my friends that I would wait until I saw something from Xbox...

E3 is here the build up before E3 was that Microsoft failed, and all the other rumors with the Xbox1 failing at being a gaming system. The press conference started and I was blown away by Metal Gear, not because it was Metal Gear but because of the graphics , now as a previous Xbox 360 owner I felt comfortable with what the Xbox1 could do, I went out and Preordered the system, and I preordered Nba 2k14, Battlefield and Watch Dogs all coming out on launch day.. Yes the PS4 is cheaper I was planning on paying at least $500 anyways , I am 30 yrs old , I work , I have a budget for my video game habit, also the fact that I have been waiting for Pc gaming to come on console for years, now let's look at all Xbox or Xbone has to offer entertainment , cloud computing, Xbox live, and the Kinect...... Cloud computing interested me the most because of the possibilities that can be done with it ..

Let's look at the PS4 and why I was sold on purchasing it, the PS4 is more powerful, I did not own a PS3, and maybe PS4 gamers may differ from Xbox gamers, these are solid reasons for me to go out and pre order the PS4 in my mind right then it hit me, Xbone offers more, if Microsoft is right the risk I take dispite all the negative press will be the right choice, the only thing I would lose out on by not owning a PS4 will be the power of the PS4, I will be pissed off if the multiplatform games look very different on the PS4, but I will be mad but I can live with it..

Now let's touch on what the mobs are talking about , all of the lynching being done towards Microsoft DRM, and checking in 24 hrs etc , Sony could have gone the same route with these policies, and with both companies doing the same thing I wonder what would be the determine factor in buying either system ? ah that's right games, power to deliver the games, multiplayer support, and extras, so to everyone out there stop being followers and become a leader
nix  +   776d ago
and you said you are 30 years old... hmmmmm...
T2  +   776d ago
yeah, i have a budget for games too. Doesn't mean I am going to buy something with draconian policies that I don't need.
All you did was write a 4 paragraph statement about games. Will I miss Halo ? Sure, does Titanfall look good? yes it does... but the point is unless you have time to play EVERY game out there, there are always good games available to both systems. Killzone is fun, Halo is fun, Forza is fun, Driveclub looks good. So yes, it is about games, but games you own, and the best multiplats available. From the info we have received so far, it appears Ps4 multiplats will have an edge, but that remains to be seen. Graphics - same thing, it appears ps4 has an edge but we don't know for sure yet.
If you were a real "leader" you would gather all the relevant information and apply it, not just pat yourself on the back for going against the crowd. You would wait and see which system suits your style and really plays the best, if it was really about games.
Then you say "sony could have done the same thing"... and i realized it was another fanboy rant.... "sony will do the same", "sony could have done the same" , "wait for e3" , "wait till Launch".... etc......
awesomeperson  +   776d ago
"Cloud computing"
Are you saying you fell for those Microsoft buzzwords, which will mean basically nothing this generation, but instead convince people like you to buy their console?

I'm sure if "cloud computing" was a huge success Sony would be able to implement it aswell. We have seen Sony have been listening to the developers' ideas, and thus far, it is not likely they have been screaming the need for cloud computing.

If it is needed it will be implemented, I'm sure Sony has that figured out.

The rest of what you said that the Xbox One offers more of is pretty negligible, as both consoles do practically the same.
pimpschitz  +   776d ago
He's one of them. . . .


Just so you know dude, MGS5 is going to both consoles, those graphics are going to be on both consoles, it's just going to run smoother on PS. :)
Tegrogg  +   776d ago
Exactly , Dont know if it will run smoother , I'm fine with the graphics on the Mgs5 running on the xb1 , you missed the point I was making
rainslacker  +   776d ago
Ummm...Sony could have gone the same route...but they didn't. That's why MS is getting sent to the curb. It's a pretty significant part of this whole debate. They can both deliver the games...the question is, are people willing to accept what you have to put up with to game on the X1. Sony removed(or never had) that question from their console, so the choice is much easier to make.

Do you see how there are two versions of PS4 on that list? The standard edition and launch day edition at #2 and #3 respectively? Do you see how the launch edition is sold out? Now look at the only Xbone option on there. See how it says "day one edition"? Know what that means? PS4 launch edition was at #1 until it sold out. Now they are selling PS4's beyond the initial launch called the "standard edition." The standard edition has now outsold the launch edition. The standard edition alone is on course to outsell the Xbone, let alone if you add the sells from both PS4 editions together.
