PS4 Vs. Xbox One: Amazon Splits PlayStation 4 Preorder Page

Amazon adds to Microsoft’s list of problems: The Sony PS4 preorder page is firmly in first place on the online retail giant’s list of best-selling video games. The Xbox One falls to second place, but the PlayStation 4 also pops up in third place on the list. Amazon now claims they may not be able to promise PS4 delivery on the launch date due to overwhelming demand.

The story is too old to be commented.

I think by now we should make a few changes on n4g.

The agree button should be the ps4 logo and the disagree should be the xbox one.

Dmarc:

Who knows, maybe the PS4 is at for example, 500 000 preorders, and the X one only at 100 000 then the Ps4 (non day one delivery) would be at 80 000. There could be a great distance between both positions.

Amazon now claims they may not be able to promise PS4 delivery on the launch date due to overwhelming demand.

Amazon was forced to split the PS4 preorder product listing into two due to high demand. Amazon also listed the following “Product Alert” on the PS4 preorder page: “The standard version of the PlayStation 4 is identical to the Launch Edition. Due to high demand, we cannot guarantee Release-Date Delivery on the standard version of the PlayStation 4. We will deliver the standard version of PlayStation 4 as close to its release date as possible.”

WOW Sony does a great job at E3.

OT that was funny. :)

I'm all for calming the fanboy waters around here, but that was funny as hell.

HumanAfterAll1198d ago

In my opinion the Agree should be "Gamer" because it shouldn't matter what you play on as long as your gaming.

The Disagree should say "Fanboy"

=D

Kevin ButIer1198d ago

If the dualshock 4 outplace the One... pfff

Gameatholon1198d ago

I think there names should show up when they disagree with you, that way you can ask them why and have a healthy discussion and or a debate. :)

But then reality kicks in, and it would just lead to a super form of trolling.

Bathyj1198d ago

wow. 310 agrees.

my only hope is my bubbling you up as funny, actually makes you gain a bible

Don't thank me, thank Sony because without them none of this would be possible.

Haha jokes aside I am really happy that playstation is taking us back to the wonder days.

ajax171199d ago

I hope Sony reacts to this and increases production for more launch PS4's.

3-4-51199d ago

Why do people act like Microsoft didn't show anything good...like they didn't show some really cool games?

I get it, it's not only cool to hate on Microsoft..it's not really cool...

Sony won...hands down..not even close, and Microsoft needs to stop being so out of touch and arrogant, but they didn't completely fail.

You are all starting to sound like fanboys now and it's just annoying.

I've always been an xbox/Nintendo gamer, but this may be the first year I get PS4....they've just done too much correct for me to even think of ignoring it.

* XB1 controller is awesome, because 360 is arguably the best and most comfortable ever made.

* I hated Dual shock, but they seem to have fixed the analog and triggers so maybe I'll like it.

People need to be more open minded and balanced with their opinions, otherwise it comes across as just copying what everyone else is doing.

And BTW that comment about the agree = PS4 was funny.

Hicken1199d ago

You must not be paying attention.

Plenty of people from both sides- Sony AND MS- and the middle have said the XBOne had some nice stuff shown off. Me, personally, I thought TitanFall looked super badass.

But that doesn't suddenly erase the negatives. Yet Microsoft and many sites out there- and many fanboys here and elsewhere- would have us ignore the always online or forced Kinect as if they didn't matter.

They do.

And they matter more than a few games.

It would be like the US launching a nuke at China, but hitting New York instead, and then people saying, "Well, a few people probably survived, and they didn't kill anybody anywhere else in the country, so it wasn't ALL bad."

No shit. It wasn't ALL bad. But that little bit of good news doesn't make the bad better.

MuleKick1199d ago

Microsoft's system does have some very cool features and games. That's true. But they did alot wrong in my opinion. They were never getting my money but I think they may have some issues getting other peoples money with the mess they pooped out.

mediate-this1199d ago

Hey I like sony as much as everyone, but sony has not won anything yet. I know sony is trying hard to appease the gamers, but what will you say after all that hard work? after all this micro hate, that micro and sony are even in sales, or micro on top?

Micro is a business and they will try things that seem greedy, but its the people who are voting with their wallets, people can talk about how micro screws the gamers but if micro sells a bunch of systems all that hate is for naught.

Your counting your chickens before they hatch.

With that being said, I pre-ordered both, a few games I want on xbone but sony has the franchises I like.

MikeMyers1199d ago

"It would be like the US launching a nuke at China, but hitting New York instead, and then people saying, "Well, a few people probably survived, and they didn't kill anybody anywhere else in the country, so it wasn't ALL bad.""

Wow, now videogames are serious business folks. You heard it right here, the Xbox One is just like world war 3. Which is actually ironic seeing as for many years on N4G it has been a war of both sides because some people have taken this very serious well before the Xbox One came out.

ThanatosDMC1198d ago

That's your opinion about the 360 controller. The dualshock design didnt win all those awards for no reason.

The only good game that's exclusive to Xbone was Dead Rising 3. I hope it's more survival than killing zombies while riding on a tiny bicycle.

I hope Titanfall didnt get your attention because that was not a mech but a giant human model. It's UT3's giant mod basically. I'd be happier if it was actually a mech and not that giant model trash. They should have gone with Hawken type mechs but they're too lazy for that i guess.

spartanlemur1198d ago

The tragic thing is that Ryse is never going to be enjoyed by most gamers due to its presence on a platform which seems set to tank.

rainslacker1198d ago

MS showed some great games. I won't ever say they didn't. And if this weren't a console release E3, particularly between two big competitors, then MS would have "won" hands down...although subjectively I can see the argument that most of what they showed wasn't exclusive.

However, this was a console release E3, and they failed miserably in garnering the gamers attention towards it because of the restrictions and policies they have in place for the console reported two weeks prior.

Leading up to E3, the number one subject has been these policies, hell it's what's mostly being talked about now despite all the great games shown by all of the Big 3. But MS didn't mention them once during their presentation. Sony spent less than 10 minutes mentioning their policy and won...because it was the only thing on everyone's mind.

Since MS didn't address the concerns at the conference, the games didn't matter. For the first time in my life the games didn't matter for a console, and to me that is more telling of the direction MS wants to go than anything they had at the show or reveal.

More like Girl Scout cookies. Why even try to fight momentum? lol

Anon19741199d ago

Certainly it's nice to see consumers responding well to the PS4, but I wish these articles would include actual numbers. As is, these "Oooh! Amazon or Blockbuster Preorder!" articles are quite meaningless without actual context.

MASTER_RAIDEN1199d ago

so trueee. and in that same respect, can we get some ps3 vs 360 numbers as well? neither company seemed to mention it at e3.

Perjoss1199d ago

except it wont burn your fingers!

Godmars2901199d ago

XBO may actually sell because the PS4 is out of stock.

And no don't say something like that wont happen: we are talking about - CONSUMERS!

Minato-Namikaze1199d ago

But they can just order the standard edition. Only the launch edition is out of stock.

abzdine1199d ago

People aren't buying it for a reason. No way you or me will buy one just cause no PS4 available.

Greatness awaits
4>1

Godmars2901199d ago

What the in the launch edition? What does it have?

Really, all I'm hearing is something like getting achievement points for turning the thing on.

MonkeyNinja1199d ago

Amazon said themselves that “The standard version of the PlayStation 4 is identical to the Launch Edition."

The only difference is that the "launch edition" will be received on launch day of PS4, while the standard edition may be delayed due to high demand.

AznGaara1199d ago

Ps4 is out of stock? Sure let me spend $100 more on an xBone.

Said no one ever. Glad I reserved my launch Ps4 on time :)

Hercules1891199d ago

Oh look, the ps3 was $200 more and had no games at launch, but thats ok bcus it had blue ray, even tho noone knew what it was at the time.

Drekken1199d ago

Hercules189 - You can't compare the two. The PS3 was actually a good console from day 1. Anyone with a brain knew what Bluray was.

Patrick1199d ago

@ Hercules189
" but thats ok bcus it had blue ray, even tho noone knew what it was at the time."

If by no one you mean my grandmother, then yes no one knew what Blu-ray was. But... if you mean anyone that actually knew what a PS3 was, then no your wrong and are just trying to hard.

Greatness Awaits and U R NOT (red)E

H3ADWOUND811198d ago

No way, ps4 is worth the wait.. That's like saying all the blu-ray players are sold out so people are gonna revert to buying VHS boxes.. Makes no sense..

rainslacker1198d ago

I think he's referring to the mainstream consumer. On black Friday when people go to buy little Jimmy a new game machine, if the PS4 is out of stock, they could pick up the X1. However, $500 is hard pill to swallow, so they may look more towards the Wii U as an alternative.

It's really hard to say now. Most parents nowadays grew up around video games in some way, so may be more prone to realizing there is a difference between systems.

Time will tell.

Could this be the fastest selling console ever?:0

What's the difference between the launch and standard edition??

SpinalRemains1199d ago

The day on which you receive it.

The machines are identical.

Goldenarmz1199d ago

In theory, the Launce edition may be delivered on Dec 31st where as the Standard may be delivered on Jan 1st or 2nd. Its just them saying you wont get it on launch day but the systems are the same.

jmc88881199d ago

Dec 31st is a placeholder date.

It should release sooner than that, and it would not surprise me to see it release before the xbox one. Even IF, and I do think it is an IF, Xbox One releases on time.
