Whaaat? Isnt this abit premature? I have no idea how these things work but I would thought they would have given retailers units in like October at the earliest?
UltimateMaster  +   480d ago
Didn't I just read another article saying they were starting production, like just a few minutes ago?

Oh wait, Major Nelson just posted that it was getting ready and was in production.

N4G, you're confusing me....

They have been in production for a while... the articles just state "full production" which means they are making the maximum amount possible.

They are just shipping to the retail warehouses... not the stores.
guitarded77  +   480d ago
If it's true, we can expect leaks soon. Once they hit public space, someone always slips one out. But aren't they useless without the day one patch? May not matter anyway then.

these units are ready for shipment and will be released later. it will be held in the pallet until the all clear is given about a month before.
LordDhampire  +   480d ago
to up the clock speed all you have to do is a software update, and both consoles will have patches to download at launch so you won't even notice it, they have been in actual production for a while

This has got to be good news for all XB1 & PS4 pre-orders as the party is now in full swing.

Lets hope we all get our new next gen consoles as error free as possible. Can't wait for that next gen magic to start.

The 360/PS3 will look a bit dated after a few months with these babies!

Don't know why Major Nelson is "bragging" on Twitter about this, when they had to limit themselves to 13 countries.
CerebralAssassin  +   480d ago
Major retailers have a warehouse. They are probably being sent there in waves. Then the warehouse will distribute them as they see fit.
Vip3r  +   480d ago
Not really. Think about it. They will need 100,000s if not 1,000,000s for launch and instead of keeping them in the one depot it would be better just to ship them to the retailers for them to keep until release.
JokesOnYou  +   480d ago
Exactly I dont think people fully grasp what it takes to ship 1-2mil consoles to just a thousand retailers all over the country, not to mention a million more in just a couple months to all the other foreign countries. . You got to start as soon as possible day and night to make sure stock is there by Nov 22nd.

Blachek  +   479d ago
As somebody who in the past worked in a Distribution Center I can vouch for the tremendous amount of logistics and planning that goes into putting these units where they need to be at launch.

I remember working at Target and ripping open Pallets of 360's & PS3's so they could then be repacked separately into store specific boxes. Lead time for Distribution Centers alone is probably 1-2 weeks from Purchase Order > Shipping > Inbound > Processing > Staging > Picking > Packing > Outbound and that doesn't include the process of putting it on a store shelf for launch.

Whoo! I... need to pre order mine. I didn't pre order GTA V til 3 days ago. God i fuckin procrastinate at everything!
InTheZoneAC  +   480d ago
gamestop had the 360's a month before they were released.

ps3's...those were pretty much last second arrivals.
Gozer  +   480d ago
No Ps3 was readily available at launch. Im glad I didnt pay 600 bones for the ps3. Those people needed a sony stick stuck up their ass. Ps3 wasnt worth 600 bucks.
_FantasmA_  +   479d ago
You're right....PS3 was worth more than $600. Everything in the box expept for the charging cable. Brand new technology in the Cell and Blu Ray, true wireless controllers, web browser, upgradable hard drive, a PS2 inside, etc. Man I want a launch PS3. If I had known then what I know now about Sony's support for the PS3, I would have gladly payed the $600. Its a steal and worth every cent.

Rageanitus  +   480d ago
Not at all. Transportation is costs ALOT of money, and shipping at slower pace when technically it is not a RUSH is very cost effective and safety of the cargo.

The 2nd phase is the distribute to the distributers and from there it takes time also.

I've worked in the clothing industry, and much of the clothing is produced and shipped well in advance of the next season. Reason is to have inventory for forcasted demand.
Eddie20101  +   480d ago
Major nelson posting this just seems stupid and desperate. The Xbox fans eat this S@#$ up.

And if Sony does this I will say the same thing.

Desperate? You're the only one hear desperate here. Looking for Sony fan support over that stupid ass comment. He's posting a pick showing that consoles are ready for shipping, so how does that make it DESPERATE? What has shown Sony you? This was posted on twitter you moron not an official XBOX page.

Yeah they have to point things out to make it seem like things are okay. They should just take the high road and keep their mouths and put their money where their mouth is. Instead they open their mouths and confirm their foolishness. Sony has been mostly silent. They are in cruise control. M$ is on damage control.

You know how long it takes to make Millions of consoles.

I would assume Sony is around the same step in the process as well.
trancefreak  +   480d ago
I have a question. Are these units speaking generally of the xbox and ps4; are they being made in different countries? Or are the parts being sent to a fabrication shop in single or multiple countries for logistical reasons.

I know a lot of electronics are made in Taiwan, Japan Thailand, Mexico and China < unsure about consoles there and etc.
Syntax-Error  +   479d ago
Are you really that illiterate or really that absent minded? Do you know who major Nelson is and what this article was about? WHY THE HELL WOULD THIS BE A PALLET OF PS4's? The console is done and has been certified by the FCC since August before PS4 was. Those are units ready for shipping. How old are you?

Thanks moparful99 for the decent feed back.

For the other clown @Syntax you better check your mouth chump. You Obviously can't read and understand that, I said "in Generally speaking about the 2 consoles manufacturing process" and how it is produced out.

If you blatantly think I don't understand this is an Xbox article with Major Nelson sitting in front of a roll pallets of Xbox ones you are damn idiot.

Like I said "generally speaking" about "production of consoles" please tell me you understand the Words Generally and Production.

Next time choose you words wisely when you think your cool when trying to smack talk a guy with a legit question. It only makes you look like a fool. BTW yeah; I straight took a bubble as well from you.

So Slow down while reading since your comprehension skills appear very lacking.

I for 1 know who Major Nelson is; 2: I know what company he represents and what console he caters to and what consoles are in those boxes.

So if you don't have the ability to properly and respectively answer my question don't not reply to me with your nonesense.

@trance No problem, a lot of consumers are unaware that the Xbox's are manufactured in China despite Microsoft being a major US corporation. But it's far cheaper to make production facilities and pay for the labor to manufacture in China then ship them over on a cargo ship..

These are probably going to be the store display demo models to give people hands on time with the console similarly to how they did with the 360

I hope you realize they literally just started mass production. They're sending them out as they're made, and they're going to retail warehouses not stores, so they're not going to be on shelves yet.

iamnsuperman  +   480d ago
I guess it has something to do with shipping size. These things will go by sea (not air) and if you have enough to fill a couple of containers all ready why not ship them. It probably wouldn't cost a significant amount and it also reduces the effect of the supply chain slowing down (for various reasons) at the last moment (which would be bad).

I'm hoping they learned from xbox360 hardware failures. With all the tweaks recently, gives the impression that they shoehorned in a little more horsepower, but have they've done extensive testing on the system with said improvements?

Hope it doesn't melt/catch fire. That'd be one expensive plastic puddle.

Stupid bright ass sticker!

If you have to ask that you must be new to n4g..

Long story short everyone, well not everyone a certain bunch, thought xb1 was having production issues.. Something about the yield?!
MasterCornholio  +   479d ago
This is the main reason why i thought they had production issues with the console.

"Microsoft has recently lowered its Xbox One shipment forecast for 2013 from seven million units originally to 6.2 million due to poor yield rates of the device's camera module, optical disc drive (ODD) and related assembly, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) report citing market watchers."


And we all know that the console is being made in China so i thought that the information was probably true.

No. Not with the countless fanboys (you know who you are) who go from forum to forum to spread lies about the competitors product to make them feel better about their pathetic lives. It's as if they believe they're helping the company they worship so much, but every time their lies get exposed, it does the opposite. This applies to fanboys of both PS4 and Xbone, or any product out there.

I'm surprised I haven't heard about any of the worst offenders ever being sued for Slander/Libel considering how quite a few BS statements have taken off all over the internet and I have little doubt that pre-orders were affected.
