Nope... it won't
Goku781  +   461d ago
Yeah, I could promise systems in stock too, if I didn't launch in as many countries as my competition. I wouldn't show those preorder numbers either. I'm just saying.
falviousuk  +   461d ago | Well said
troll much. What are the pre-order numbers for both consoles, please provide a link to a credible source of information on this.

Limiting the certain countries guarantees more stock for those, rather than spreading out the stock you have to more countries. They could easily add in more countries by only sending a few thousand to each. Can you provide information as to how many Sony are shipping to every Country, again please provide links or information fro credible sources.

If you are not able to do this, then its just you really trolling, just like you do in other xbox related threads
Goku781  +   461d ago
I understand how it works, the fact is they aren't launching in as many countries. Neither is really saying what the preorder numbers are but I don't think I would want to show those numbers for Xbox One anyway. PS if you followed everything I type, I don't discriminate. I will give credit where it is due, but if a company is f'ing up, or questionable on something I will call them out I.E. Capcom. MS just been on a bad roll that I'm not seeing much right. I'm getting a PS4 due to the fact they are headed in the right direction for gaming, but thinking about picking up that Wii U and Platinum's Wonderful 101 cause it looks like something Nintendo did right that's a positive for gaming. Next question?

Huh? That comment sounded like a politician with a heavy dose of some really terrible logic...aaah my bad its Goku at it again, I liked Maria's trolling style better, just show up bash anything xbox related, wash and repeat....so it was easy not take him seriously, hmmmm although different tactics its the same old agenda and neither makes much sense so guess I got another one to add to the list.

@Goku781:

Wouldn't redirecting stock from other regions to meet demand in other countries suggest the pre-order numbers would be really high?

Anyhow, why am I bothering responding to a troll. They don't respond to reason, only annoyance.

What do you want me to say, lie and say Xbox One is the best thing since sliced bread and fall in with the rest of the PR spinners when MS has been sending gaming in the wrong direction? Well that's just not the direction I would go. You have fun over there if that's right for you. I may see you on Xbox One one day, but Day one will not be that day.

You're plentiful with assumptions it seems, Goku781.

Even if, as you claim, you don't discriminate, and we look past the fact that most posts do contain opinion, then we are still left with:

"Yeah, I could promise systems in stock too, if I didn't launch in as many countries as my competition. I wouldn't show those preorder numbers either. I'm just saying."

This seems about as productive as posts containing "M$" and "n4sony" and such.

Try to keep it meaningful, brother.

Even if that was true, not acknowledging a single piece of negative Xbox One news hardly makes you a troll!

That said, who appears like a troll?

Me giving a perfect reason and viable option to discuss or you going on an attack without adding anything?

Or the guy that blatantly has false logic?

In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if this was one of your multiple troll accounts out to spew anti-MS hate. I really don't understand that hatred. It's a product, and no company loves you. They love your money and their profit.

Grow up, and get over it!

How can you say MS is on a bad roll. They have won in E3 the most awards for any videogame platform. They are showing off incredible games. The UI has just been introduced to positive previews and yet you still go around knocking MS. You are not backing anything up with numbers. The way I see it men lie, women lie, numbers don't lie. Show me the proof that the competition is really blowing MS out.

They are nearing a million pre orders worldwide so yea not to bad just their biggest launch ever.Also PS4 will be losing $60 on every console sold.Xbox One will be making profit day one.Hell the PS3 lost over 5 billion this gen and the PS Vita 2 billion loss.Now the PS4 so yea looks like this could be sonys last console you just cant keep losing billions like this.I have a feeling the PS4 is gonna be a 10 pound paper weight
TheOneEyedHound  +   461d ago
Of course they are guaranteed. I mean, you could just walk in Walmart on release day and pick it up It's not selling out.

Edit: nope, just a guess. From what I've seen it looks like garbage. You can call me a fanboy, but I own a 360 and bought it at launch, just a horrible console(Xbox One) IMHO.

Can you provide factual information as to how many consoles MS are manufacturing for release ?

If not then you are just trolling, much like most of the posters will be doing in here
awesomeperson  +   461d ago
I'ld make a guess and say not as many as they wanted to. That much if obvious from the reduced number of launch countries. It's apparent Microsoft were not ready for launch, and it shows through their policies, 180s and similar problems.

I think that they'll do well this holiday season, in countries such as the UK and US. Especially so if there is a shortage of PS4s.

All I said above is purely conjecture, no one knows for sure, but what I said makes sense to me personally.
meatysausage  +   461d ago
No one will know, my guess it will be 2-3 million, PS4 might be 4 million.
They can manufacture quite a lot.
lastofgen  +   461d ago
Just ignore him.
I'm just happy that those who pre-ordered at game will get their pre-orders by christmas.
NobleTeam360  +   461d ago
What makes it horrible in your opinion?
CocoWolfie  +   461d ago
so much for that release date. but really its a shame if you have to wait that long for your own console.
Flutterby  +   461d ago
I'm sure they will still have some day one consoles in December to sell as well , if anyone needs one the 4 EBgames stores near to me have 50% of there day one allocation left, so around 16 each shop, no one wants them lol. I guess it's hard to sell an overpriced lower powered console at around the same launch date as the ps4. Same story in stevenage and Hertford in the UK so my cousins say.
Excalibur  +   461d ago
This may be a dumb question but what do they mean by "Standard Edition consoles"?

Standard Edition meaning not launch consoles or Standard Edition meaning no game bundles?
stevehyphen  +   461d ago
Not the day one edition, and probably not bundles, either.

If you were to go pre-order just the system right now, that would probably be the standard edition.
Excalibur  +   461d ago
Well that just makes common sense as the launch editions have been sold out a while now.
stevehyphen  +   461d ago
All that I took from it is that you should be able to pre-order one now and you will get it before Christmas.

As for the bundles, your guess is as good as mine.

Edit: I wouldn't worry much about the games, even if some sell out launch day, they will be restocked a few times before Christmas I would imagine. Digital purchase is also a backup.

Excalibur  +   461d ago
Oh I'm not worried as I'm not getting ONE.

I'll get one when the "standard Edition" is the Kinect Free edition.
TheFutureIsBlue  +   461d ago
That is actually very surprising. I know Microsoft and Sony are having to crunch in a lot of work just to make and ship all of these consoles.
DevilishSix  +   461d ago
I preordered both a PS4 and X1 on June 10th and have been watching and reading and researching since that time. I have decided to cancel my X1 and hold off on that console for awhile. I am an XBL Legacy member by the way.
NobleTeam360  +   461d ago
Yeah, I'll be holding off on the Xbox One also, I need to see some better games and if it sales terrible after the holidays then maybe even a price drop.
GiggMan  +   461d ago
Smart move to preorder both and make a decision later if you can't get them both at the same time.

Edit. Was suppose to be a reply to DevilishSix above me...

Yeah its just to close to xmas and it would be selfish of me to spend so much money on myself when I have a wife and 7 year old daughter to get xmas for. So I decided which one had games I wanted to play more. I went PS4 with Killzone, Warframe, and Resogun over X1 with DR3 and Ryse and that was how I decided.

MichaelLito79  +   461d ago
Seems like a good choice DevilishSix although I admit two of the games you chose are on PC already. If you have a PC you can play the games and not have have to wait till November. LOL

Note: with the exception of Multiplatform retail games the Xbox One titles are all exclusive. Including the Download games. For Example Crimson Dragon, Lococycle, Peggle 2, Killer Instinct. Add RYSE, FORZA 4, DeadRising 3, Fighter Within and a few more and you have a great launch lineup of exclusives you won't find on other systems. Just saying.

MRMagoo123  +   461d ago
peggle 2 and fighter within great launch line up ???? lmfao Also Ryse and DR3 arent worth getting the console for, actually after giving Ryse a go i would actually put it as a game to avoid its hack n slash minus variety. Killer instinct wont sell systems either i cant imagine any fighter selling any console.
