Is Ps4 not the highest selling electronic device currently?(on amazon)

Beyond that is there anyway to tell which one is winning with there being so many regions and retailers?

dedicatedtogamers1971d ago

AFAIK PS4 is leading pre-orders in all territories, including USA.

tbh the "news" that this article cites is from the offical Xbox website. I wouldn't put too much stock in it.

As far as you know isn't saying very much at all now is it?

Hicken1970d ago

@Praxxtor: What he knows far outstrips what you know, at this point. That's been made evident by comment histories.

Well, launch edition has sold out twice, Xbox One's initial shipment hasn't even sold out. The there's 5 other PS4 bundles in the top 10 amazon video games sales, and the Dualshock 4.

And its sold out at a lot of Gamestops despite having 3x the One shipment.

X1 has been holding down the #1 spot for a week+ so you would think if ps4 sales although split would overtake X1 off and on more than it has. Also the article is wrong since it was #1 on Amazon as I noted in 1 of my older posts BEFORE the reversal.

Anyway its hard to tell whats what since we dont know what the gap is between each position regarding actual units preodered.

Edit Vitual Reality you are correct, X1 is only leading the current best seller list but not outsold/preodered higher than ps4.

That is the Launch day edition, still hasn't sold out.

PS4 Launch edition Sold out weeks ago. Almost a week after E3.

By the way, there are multiple PS4 pre orders in the current list.

jc485731970d ago (Edited 1970d ago )

xboxone is currently number 6. Still way behind the ps4 launch edition currently ranked at 3 that has been "out of order" for weeks and now is back in for unlimited preorders.

NewMonday1970d ago

the PS4 has multiple bundles making it a wide spread, XBone has 1.

also the XB1 rise is in the short term trending list.

joefrost001970d ago

Who cares
This need to say see the console I bought is winning so screw you
Its kinda childish and comical
Its comical cause none of you are getting a check from sony or MS but y'all looking at the numbers like you all work for their financial department
Its sad cause all of this fanboy console war talk has taken away from talking about the launch games I have been gaming for a long time
I remember when it use to be who had the better launch lineup
That is who wins at launch (not long term) but now its launch window and comes with an headset please
Who has the best launch lineup of games period

There you go folks. The PS4 day one edition has been sold out for a while now, and in the grand scheme of things, the XB one still hasnt even passed it.

And where not even including the PS4 bundles yet. The One is getting spanked on Amazon.

Uh, PS4 has far outsold One in pre-order numbers even after the removal of all the restrictions.

x1 has a pre-order loss still.

thaimasker1971d ago

It doesn't deserve it because it doesn't have it.

Abriael1971d ago
