So far production looks like more PS4's being produced in these pics than XboxOne(s) in the Major Nielson pic

No dude.. comparing those pics proves nothing.

EDIT: Major nelson posted that picture simply to show fans that the Xbone is in full production.

Whether he took the picture of a single console, a room full or an entire warehouse it doesn't matter.

Comparing those pictures is taking it completely out of context. I assure you there are warehouses right now full to the brim of Xbones ready for launch as it is in full production.

Whichever company is producing more is a complete unknown at this point.

of course Sony produces more consoles, they have a lot more facturies because they are a hardwarecompany, not like microsoft.

@ HeyImBen11

Here are the companies that are producing the xbox one parts. With AMD obviously producing the chip-sets.

Asia Optical – sensing lenses
Delat Electronics – power supply
Foxconn Electronics – assembly
Foxlink – connectors
Jentech Precision Industrial – cooling modules
Lite-On Technology – optical disc drive
Newmax – sensing lenses

All of the parts are pretty much created and assembled by third parties. Who owns the most factories is a moot point.

Once again I must assert logic... as with the completely unnecessary Xbox One pictures, this is ridiculous. No one really thinks that these things aren't coming do they? Sony has presold over a million of these things. Of course its their intentions to fulfill every order and then some.

But if you do want to get crazy for a moment you can zoom into the crates. Notice that they are labled by package number. The most visible one looks like P2113. The one next to it looks like P2118. Each wrapped pallet looks like it contains 30 big boxes which probably contain 8 consoles a piece.

Therefore I submit that if P2113 is the latest package, than this fatory has produced over 500,000 PS4s

My PS4 is somewhere in this shot.

There is absolutely no proof that more ps4s are in production than xbox1s. Comparing the two pics and saying otherwise is completely nonsensical and delusional. Do you guys need to compare EVERYTHING?
Triella  +   726d ago

The leaker of this pictures was told by his boss that they are shipping one million consoles for launch from this factory alone. And they are many more assembly lines in Baidu.
FamilyGuy  +   726d ago
No doubt, here we see a warehouse full of pallets of PS4s wrapped for shipping and ready for launch. One million in this factory alone and this isn't the only factory...

Sony came prepared big time this gen and seeing this just follows in line with all the other great steps they've been making in regards to everything associated with the PS4.

This holiday season is shaping up to be one of, if not the most memorable in history for a gaming fan.

Microsoft be like: we just overclocked the CPU again! Gotta reconfigure the units!

Sony be like: 4 million PS4's in 4 days. Mwahahahahaahahaha!

ShwankyShpanky  +   725d ago
To be fair... those pics really don't prove anything.

The first pic is just printed packaging. Not even folded and prepped for product. Those could have been printed months ago when the product exterior design was finalized.

In the second pic, the labels aren't legible. They could be pallets of anything.

I won't say that these pics are "faked" in any way, at the same time there's nothing inherent to them to prove they are what they claim to be. The originating thread appears legit I guess... at least from what Google Translate produces.

I've seen nothing that indicates Sony is behind schedule on production, and I believe them to have a better manufacturing supply chain than MS, but to me these pics are little more than a curiosity.

Gotta love Google translate:

Serious question - what do people think are minimum and maximims Sony could sell by year one ?
FamilyGuy  +   725d ago
If demand were high enough to validate them keeping all production factories open for a full year I'd say 14 million. It's unlikely that would happen though, the big sales burst always happen around november-december.

I see them doing 10-12 million though, easily.
1OddWorld  +   726d ago
Sony has won the hearts and minds this time around, but the only true way to capitalize on this is to have an over abundance of stock in stores. You want to saturate the market so bad that the units sit side by side on the shelves being compared for the people who didn't pre-order. First thing people will compare is price. People want to play next gen games at a price they can afford and $399 looks better than $499.
ovnipc  +   725d ago
stupid drones that want this paper weight. Xbox One and X 360 all I need after PS1 sony was done for me,
N64>PS1-- Golden Eye better game than any PS game
Xbox Original > PS2--- Halo better than any PS2 game.
Xbox 360>PS3--- 95% of games look better better fps and all games.
Xbox One> Ps4--- Exclusives, Titanfall, DR3, Forza, Ki look better and funner than any PS crap game "Knack" hahahahaha yea spend $400 to play that shit made by the guy who designed it. Fuk PS!

JustPlay4  +   725d ago
What is with xbox fans an fps's is that all you guys/girls play, don't get me wrong I love shooters but still there other genres out there

1. N64 was good but not better then ps1(your opinion)

2. Original xbox sucks (my opinion) and halo 1 and 2 where on PC as well

3. Those are third party games, that is also just your opinion

4. Again just your opinion not a fact, also is funner even a real word

5. Knack look fine for what it is and I rather pay 400 for a good console with good games then 500 when it could 400 if they would just loses the kinect (my opinion)

>don't you have something better to do

Says the guy who sits on N4G all day and comments on rumours as if they are facts.

You're the type of gamer who bitched and moaned about paying for Xbox LIVE and vowing to never pay a fee to play a game online, but you'll pay for PS Plus and talk about it as if it is the greatest idea in the industry.
stuna1  +   725d ago
Yeah you're probably right, since at least with PS+ I'll stand to gain value for what it is I'm paying for! But for Live where is the value? Since everything is behind a paywall anyway.
At least I don't need PS+ to get basic functionality out of my console, can you say the same for yours? Especially since we know your console of choice by your comment.

As far as commenting on rumors, I don't quite understand the question, considering the fact that....that's exactly what you're doing. So before asking that question, maybe you should ask yourselves first.
