Wow, what anut job you are, so you're saying you have no problem with Americans sticking sh1t up your a$$, but you do with japanese doing it? And whats wrong with the japanese? What you dont like em? And trying to make sony out to be just as fvcked up as MS, just cuz MS showed their true colors. They are arrogant and greedy and stupid. Forcing a overrated spycam on you, charging you $100 more for a inferior product, then lying to millions of people about what the cloud can do. They are despicable, just like you, you nutty fvck

Grooming is the best way to describe what Sony are doing. I'm in no hurry to get either consoles from ms or sony. Both consoles and fanboys are too busy insulting each other, to support either is wrong.

It's marketing... They didn't sold out this early. They just say it's sold out because the PS4 really sold out earlier.

1) The console costs 499$, how could it sells out this early when the concurrent is at 399$?

2) It has bad press, bad marketing

3) No good games announced for the Xbox One to convince people that their console worths the 100$+ price tag compared to the PS4.

I highly doubt it sold out, sorry.

The price is irrelevant. 400 or 500, if people want it they will buy it. Just because you dont think there will be good games on the xbox one doesnt mean there wont be.

Im getting the xbone and looking forward to it. The extra 100 for the system over the ps4 doesnt bother me. And if it did I probably shouldnt be spending 400 on the ps4 either.

They need time to put the finishing touches on the system and still have time to manufacture the systems. Shit cant be dont over night. Make sense for the system to not he available anymore. Im surprised reserves got as high as they did for both systems.

PFFT  +   816d ago
Wasnt the Ps3 around 600 or so and it still was able to sell out in a few stores. So why cant the XBO sell out as well?? The Ps3 was over priced more so than the XBO had about 2 or so games that were worth playing and it had a shitty online service. If that system could sell out at that price then so can the XBO. The XBO will offer a better online service and it will also have a much better game line up at launch.

Best Buy had limited stock so does GameStop, PS4 will sell more because they are shipping out more systems. I do believe they'll both be just fine despite what people say or think.
Dlacy13g  +   816d ago
Oh....do you happen to know how many shipments Sony is sending out? You also wouldn't happen to know how much MS is shipping out. That kind of specific data would be really useful since I haven't seen it posted anywhere online...or in any press statements so far. That's some crazy insider info you must have!

Still available at Amazon and game stop and quite a few other places.
As I have said before though xb1 and ps4 have both been sold out where I live for awhile. At best buy and game stop anyways idk about any where else

People took the piss out of the ps3 for being 600usd but now people will be spending 600usd+ on xbone its ok now? lol at the hypocrisy.

A headset isn't necessary to use the Xbox One. If we're going the route of factoring in unecessary things then the PS4 will cost roughly about the same...probably a little more.

PS4 + Camera + one game + an extra controller + extended warranty + one year PS Plus sub + tax

@LOGICWINS And if you want a second screen for PS4 then that's another 250$. I can just use my phone or tablet with Xbox One. But I have both preordered so I'm set.

WRONG your adding in optional things most people wont get, a game and will be coming with my 400 pre order , i dont need a second controller for a while and i will have plus before release so the MAXIMUM i need to spend is 450. im not getting the camera or extended warranty as i trust the ps4 to be well built.

Hicken  +   816d ago
I wasn't gonna say anything at all in this article, at first. I was just gonna read the comments and go.

But then Wraith, one of the many trolls who's gotten a new lease on life since the bubble reset, had to go and spout absolute lies.

Don't really care about the prices of the consoles, or how much they cost once you add in all the other stuff. That largely depends on what you want to do with the console.

(As a side note @viking: neither your phone nor your tablet will be comparable in a gaming capacity to what the Vita will be able to do in tandem with the PS4. You speak as if there's no cost for your tablet or phone, but if you're assuming that people will have to come out of pocket for a Vita and are summarily adding its cost, the you must likewise do the same for a tablet for the XBOne. To do so for one and not the other is pure bias, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised.)

But this:

"he PS3 had a terrible online service, terrible multiplats and subpar exclusives which were few in their totality to begin with."

This needs to be dealt with.

Of course, doing so in this atmosphere will be next to impossible, as I can't imagine that anyone will take anything I have to say seriously here.

In any case, the PS3's online is more than adequate. Good enough for MMOs like DC Universe. Good enough to allow for larger player-count battles than any games on any other consoles. Whether or not it lives up to your lofty- and likely rather vague but nonetheless skewed in XBL's favor- ideals is another story, though.

The multiplats were not terrible, except in the cases of Bayonetta- which was outsourced for some untold reason- and Skyrim- which wasn't exactly all that great on any platform, as far as bugs were concerned. Furthermore, multiplatform games have gotten to the point where they are better on PS3 than 360, or indistinguishable, and have been that way for a few years now.

Finally, the exclusives. I believe that the PS3 has more exclusives than 360. If not, certainly it has more CORE exclusives. As for subpar, I have no idea where you'd get that from. I assume it was just something you made up to continue the negativity, but PS3 exclusives has frequently been amongst the highest lauded games of each year, and of the generation. And while they may not all sell like Halo, the vast majority do well enough to see multiple sequels, or are otherwise deemed successful.
ChubbyLover  +   816d ago
Doesnt PS4 need a PSN+ sub now to play MP or to have some nice extra features?, so when you buy a PS4 your still buying accessories and services most likely as well that will raise the price over 500 or even close to 600 dollars for the initial purchase of your console.

The only extra thing i saw on your list that you wont have to get with your PS4 purchase is batteries... BIG whoop, like it or not batteries arent the end of the world. a customer can just get a play and charge kit and be done with it if they dont want to worry about batteries.

Any Console is going to be a huge investment upfront.

EDIT: i guess batteries are a non issue if microsoft got rid of the battery pack as stated by another member below

@HORNDOG A cable box that plays halo, forza, titanfal and all third party games at 60fps /1080p and has a bluraydrive?? That's a steal. Give me one of them cable boxes too. Beats just your ordinary gaming machine such as the ps4.

Its probably the reason why it will sell more. Good point troll

It's subjective. For my XB1 I will be paying $499 for the console, $59 for an extra controller, I will be using the kinect for voice or just by and adapter which is priced at $19, $59 a piece for 3 launch titles, and I already have XBL through next year so no charge...totals $735 to $754. FOr my PS4 I will be paying $399 for the console, $59 for a controller, $59 for 3 launch titles, and $50 for PS+, I just have the regular PSN now, but will be upgrading to play multiplayer on PS4 and I may get the PS Eye for $59...totaling $685 to $744. So this difference is negligible to me.

Actually you can times every by two because I will have 2 PS4's and XB1's in my household. I will be spending about $2200 to $2300 for these next gen systems....can't wait.

Hell, I paid $599 for a PS3, $59 for the extra contoller, then had to turn around and fork out another $118 for two controllers that actually had the rumble feature, because the original PS3 controller did not have the rumble feature, and I brought 3 launch titles at $59 a piece totaling $953 not including taxes..so the PS4 or XB1 are over $200 cheaper.
to buy another controller just to get rumble features.
Jessika_S  +   816d ago
@WrAiTh Sp3cTr3 spoken Like someone who never played PS3 though I love my Xbox 360, PS3 is killing them right now with better exclusive titles and who ever says that PS3 online is not good then you need to talk to your service provider cause I never had any serious problems and If I ever did same problems I had on my 360 their service is not perfect either. Only problem no CrossChat.

Xbox one offers waay more then the ps3 did..

You were paying the massive amount for the cell processor and bluray drive... Both were totally unproven at the time..

And they both just played games.. Pretty equally at that.. So yeah, price was a huge issue..

Now Xbox is $100 more but offers tons of features ps4 doesn't have..

For some.. Those features are well worth the hundred bucks.. For others its not, so get a ps4!

These consoles are not a one size fits all situation.. They are different products that compete in the same space.

Its not like comparing Nike and Reebok.. They aren't the same.. If one isn't for you, get the other ..

Stop saying drop kinect and I'll buy it.. No you won't.. And nobody wants you too if that's the condition..

We dont want it cut.. Ms doesn't want it cut.. Because they know they'd screw us and them over and you likely still won't buy it..

Your buying a ps4? Awesome.. Sincerely enjoy it.. All this bs and insults isn't going to change anyone's mind.. Except their opinion of your intelligence..
lawgone  +   816d ago
Pope, I didn't disagree with you because of the prices you listed. I disagreed with you because of your own hypocrisy. You're mad at XBox One supporters not being mad at the price b/c during last gen they pointed out the price of the PS3 was high. You say that's hypocrisy. Fine. But isn't it also hypocrisy to leave out the fact that Sony fans defended the $599 PS3 yet have gone on and on about the XBox One being priced too high at $499? You're actually being a hypocrite by calling others hypocrites.

Actually the sell outs are based on how many models that particular store is to recieve. Of they're only getting 50 they can only sell 50 preorders.

I was at best buy the other day talking with the guy about it. They are not allowed by policy to sell a preorder for something they won't have on release day.

Sony is Shipping more systems to retailer then Microsoft so it could be true if they only get 10 then they'll sale 10 if Sony sends 50 then they have to wait until they sale the 50 to claim that they are sold out. That's how it works.

well your buying an extra controller not me! so minus 64 dollars on my purchase and like i said with the new ps4 online purchase your getting more for what you paid for and sony showed more exclusive titles then the xbox 1. and the kinect is mandatory for your console and suppose it breaks no kinect no play. and from what we seen from both micros and sonys e3 conference it is safe to say that sony won this years e3. you see how microsoft had to change their strategy becuz of the used game fees which i already new they were gonna change after seeing that

Also selling out of xbox one took a extremely long time considering we at one point sold 48 ps4 in a day and a half and only reached 30 xbox one last week.

Also yeah Canada had 3 to 1 in favour of ps4 for EB/ Gamestop Canada company wide for overall sales.

I worked enough launches to know that having 200 systems at launch isn't realistic. Maybe Canada is different...
PFFT  +   816d ago
Seriously 200 DAMN! Sounds too me like Sony is desperate. How many are reserved 20 or 30?
Chevalier  +   815d ago
@Death and Pfft, no Sony isn't desperate far from it, 200 isn't "realistic" as you would put it those are the actual number of people with money down and preordered, we didn't have a limit and people have been ordering them regularly. I can tell you our company presells 3 ps4 for every xbox one in Canada at EB/Gamestop my store is almost 7-1. At one point it was 165-22, in the time we presold our last 8 xbox ones we presold 35 ps4's.

Wow, desperate much? So are you going to call and search for every stores and post links of those those that aren't sold out of Xbox1 now?

The distance some people will go to downgrade success. LOL

I don't get why people are suprised that they sold out. its A NEXT GEN Console with its own fanbase.

PS3 had a terrible start but it still sold out.. why because it was a NEXT GEN console with its own fanbase.

If you're not purchasing it then why bother bash it that it sold out its not your money.

besides Its Does (did) DMR is more believable than it does 4D.

With a wall of Sony TV's, Blu Rays, DVD's and computers behind him. What's your point?
Jag-T1000  +   816d ago
I preordered it as soon as I heard they had dropped their used games and online restrictions.

Ps4 has several free to play games so $400 gets you 4-5 games without ps+. Just saying.

Keep in mind you have to keep with the Subscription otherwise you can't access them

It was good while it lasted and the price will get more expensive down the track
Hicken  +   816d ago
You don't pay attention. He's talking about the f2p games. DC Universe, Planetside, etc. You don't need Plus for those at all.

If Plus goes up in price, what do you think will happen to XBL, which is already more expensive, despite not offering the same level of value? Hell, it went up and didn't add a damn thing.

@Dcj.. I'm so glad no one asked you..

I had pre-ordered PS4 but I cancelled my order much prefer Xbox One has got more better games and sick and tired of playing the same killzone over and over again Meh to the other titles

It's a trolling account. Bring it down.

Getting the One because as a competitive street fighter player I must try out Killer Instincts it looks soo coool. Plus I can't abandon my car club in Forza 4 and Horizon that will be going over to Forza 5. Plus my achievements, friends, subscription, ect.

Also I have a reflective T.V. where moving it is not an option (it's so big it can't move up or down already spans the height of my floor to ceiling) so the PS4 controller glare from the light would annoy me so hard.
christocolus  +   816d ago

"Getting the One because" Im a stupid fvcking fanboy. Who wants to be DRM'ed up the a$$
