A John Lewis Christmas has no room for a Sony PS4

The Inquirer: ''John Lewis has published its top ten list of expected big selling gifts for the coming holiday season, but it does not include the Sony Playstation 4 (PS4) games console.

John Lewis' top ten list does make room for the Microsoft Xbox One games console, but does not list its Japanese rival.''

"The Xbox One is the biggest launch this year, not just in gaming, but for the entire entertainment category,"

"With launch titles such as Forza Motorsport 5 and a new Halo on the horizon..." stop reading

Destrania1087d ago

You should have stopped right at 'Xbox One'

rdgneoz31087d ago (Edited 1087d ago )

Maybe they'll (John Lewis) have their ads on the dashboard "if you let them"...

Diver1087d ago

I have no room in my common sense gaming life for John Lewis.

GamerzElite1087d ago

Who is John Lewis? and Why should I read his wishlist?

AlexanderNevermind1087d ago

I'm still scratching my head on this one as well...

malokevi1087d ago

Oh, you know, only THE John Lewis.

*puzzled look*

Cryptcuzz1087d ago

Never heard of this guy like ever.

The question should be, who or WHAT is John Lewis for not having the PS4 on his or its wish list?

Breaking news! Hunny Boo Boo's wish list is out and it does not include the Xbox One, but does include the PS4!

Head = Blown.

John Lewis is a very big department store brand in the uk.

What people forget is that Microsoft pays retailers big money to be the sole mentioned item in retailers' Christmas catalogues.

Toys R Us. The Amazon.com promotion where Xbox One was advertised on the front of the website. John Lewis and many more.

DeadManIV1087d ago

Exactly MS is M$ after all

falviousuk1087d ago

And Sony is $ony after all

Both companies have an advertising strategy, but hey itsbthe Xbox so let's piss on it. If it was the other way around it would be all smiles and everything would be fine.

The hypocritical nature of the Sony fanboy

monkey6021087d ago

Falviousuk. Normaly i would tell them to take off the tin foil hat only for the fact i genuinely got a memo from my head office telling us to push microsoft over all else because they are breathing down our necks about the poor presales leading into quarter 4. I have a picture of it to show but my phine wont let me attach the image on here so ill post it up later from another machine

RIP_Weazel1087d ago

...and the sad and lonely nature of the Microsoft apologist.

monkey6021087d ago (Edited 1087d ago )

As promised here is one of the images. I couldn't post it earlier I was in work with only my phone. I have more details too but they have information I'm just not willing to post online. Had to cover a few things on this as it is
Ugh I can't use image hosting

It could be that they have sold out of pre orders for the PS4 and realise they will still have a shed load of xbones. Why advertise PS4 when they are all sold out. My local Asda has stopped advertising PS4 pre orders on the shelves. I asked why and they said all stock coming in is pre ordered/sold out. Whenever they get more in they have a list of people on waiting lists

monkey6021087d ago

This includes current gen consoles though. So were arent just talking ps4 and xboxone

sweendog1087d ago (Edited 1087d ago )

@Monkey602

Yeah after looking at your pic again (you poster it upside down by the way) it does say microsoft consoles. Thats crazy

monkey6021086d ago

Yeah I don't know how that happened. It shows up right way round on my gallery and image upload. Like I said I'm useless at the image uploading

How can something be both "Launch" & "on the horizon" at the same time ?

XB1 is the safe thing for these people to say.

They are supporting big American business, and all the BS that comes along with it.

They understand it's new and it's Microsoft so they will push it because of connections.

isa_scout1087d ago

Yeah, it's like they're forgetting GTAV and Call of Duty release this year as well...If the Xbox One beats the PS4(not happening)I will be impressed. If it's bigger than GTAV and COD I'll quite literally shit myself.

Tsar4ever011086d ago

Who the fuck is john lewis and why should I give a rats ass whether or Not if he prefers an XB1 over the PS4? All Im paying mind is to that Im getting a PS4/XB1 or shopping for family.

doctorstrange1087d ago

Probably because they're charging more than the standard price for the PS4

vigilante_man1087d ago

What a slip up from John Lewis. The PS4 is going mental on a global scale. Still, let them advertise they way they see fit.

Microsoft have only just begun to open their bag of tricks. Expect things to get desperate and dirty...

Blackdeath_6631087d ago

honestly november can't come soon enough so we can put an end to this nonsense.

iamnsuperman1087d ago (Edited 1087d ago )

It makes sense for John Lewis to do this. John Lewis has a certain demographic (due to what it sells and how much it sells for). The Xbox One has always been advertised as the living room machine (not necessarily a hardcore/dedicated console. We all know they both do multimedia and hardcore gaming but they are being advertised differently). Compare that with the high price and John Lewis demographic it makes sense to have it high on the list. Also the 360 sold more in the UK.

I don't agree with their reasoning but I can still see it

strickers1087d ago (Edited 1087d ago )

The John Lewis consumer is likely to be older and have money. Ie more like a PS3 consumer. 360 sold to youth in UK this gen

Lovable1087d ago

In other news, Lovable will buy PS4 for Christmas. Yay.

Note: I am currently accepting interview, pm me for appointment time.

My_precious1087d ago

yeah, just wonder too, who the fvck is that guy?

kayzeemoschino1087d ago

JOHN LEWIS IS A MEGA DEPARTMENT STORE IN UNITED KINGDOM...NOT A HE OR SHE

iamnsuperman1087d ago (Edited 1087d ago )

Big, more upmarket, department store chain in the UK (google is your friend). You probably do not know Waitrose but it is on that same level of demographic (fairly expensive place to get stuff and it does have more upper market stuff compared to other department stores like Debenhams). I can't think of an America equivalent.

edit: @below Damn. That's embarrassing. :)

guitarded771087d ago (Edited 1087d ago )

It was a rhetorical. Meant to devalue the opinion of one John Lewis.

Also, I really didn't know who he was. But I did Google before posting, and maintain the point of my previous comment.

guitarded771087d ago

I would compare him to Sam Walton (founder of Wal Mart).

tigertron1087d ago

I work for their biggest rival. :P

Though it would be pretty cool if my company started selling game consoles. A PS4 with staff discount would be sweeeeet.

Mr_Skyfish1087d ago

I said the same thing in my head like who the hell is John Lewis?
