60 ps4 to 24 xbox1 at my store.we can't preorder the xbox1 anymore but we can go up to 100 ps4 before we have to stop.

Still have not preordered mine, was planing to do so this weekend and was stressing they all might be out. Hopefully stores around me are like your store.

GameStop won't like a system that is designed around anti-used games technology. Used games are their bread and butter.

Seems about correct to me, given "The Unpleasantness".
