Various indie stores have contacted MCV over a lack of Xbox One stock for launch. Microsoft acknowledges there are shortages, but says it hopes to get to a free supply situation at some point in the future.
Sounds UK specific. In Germany you can still pre-order the Day One Edition. Today it was even possible at Amazon again.
you can get day one xbones all over Australia at the mo as well, i dont think they have sold out in any EB or jb hifi in the whole country.
@ MRMagoo123 Really? Because in Sydney, all the major stores (EB JB Hi Fi) dont have any Day One Xbox Ones, and most retail such as Big W and Target, you can't even order a X1, so i guess when you said 'all over Australia' you did not include Sydney. Unless they ran out of the console within the last 1 hour.
Me magoon is full of shit jb has ran out twice and reopened preorders. And I think be just reopened preorders the other week. Ps4 has sold out everywhere though. They can't guarantee anything until after January for new preorders
Yup shopto taking pre orders http://www.shopto.net/xboxo...
effin hotcakes man im tellin you
Bruh, you stupid. We all know that will be the excuse why the ps4 is outselling it 9 to 1.
He is stupid for saying the xbx one is selling well in an xbx article? Are you so insecure..9 to 1 really?why dont you go brag about that elsewhere dude...you fanboys are so up your alley..you cant see through your bias..
Hotcakes must be easy to find :-)
ESRAM production delays rear their ugly head.
While Sony is short on games (at the moment, but more on the way), MS is short on consoles -__-. MS spent millions on keeping titles exclusive to their console, but they can't even manufacture more systems.
It's not as easy as you say to manufacture anything, let alone tech products, in such a large scale. You'll have something to complain about either way: MS has consoles available = not too popular enough. MS has a shortage = MS has no clue hot to manufacture anything. MS = complain complain complain, getting to be really predictable lately around here
Thing is: we KNOW they're shipping less consoles. We KNOW they've downscaled their launch. So it's not a terrible stretch to say they're having some sort of production issue. This could, if demand is higher than supply, lead to a shortage(though the incident in question seems to be rather localized). On the other hand, it's also possible that demand isn't high enough to run through supply, meaning the console isn't popular enough, even if there are shortages in some areas. That some people note that first-day units are still available in many places indicates that the shortage isn't universal, just as the lack of demand isn't. So, in the end, both of your equations could well be true, depending on region. The third is just hyperbole.
I work for a company that mass manufactures products, it's not as black and white as people believe they think they know. I'm not in the operations side of the business so don't know everything. How may consoles are ordered, how many clients ordered, in what region, what is the capacity of their factories, what are the capacity of their warehouse, what is their capacity of their logistics, what percentage do the sell to what regions, how fast can they ship to their drop locations for distributions, etc etc. Shipping mass units are pretty much always shipped by boat, which takes 4 weeks from Asia to US. How many units are in transit? I really doubt you or anybody here knows these. US typically has the most sales (at least in my company's business) by far, pretty much double that of all of Europe combined. So they definitely won't give equal percentage for the countries. I can look at sales for Australia and see some unsold units, but that alone is by no means show how the entire world will look at. Once again, it's not as easy to mass manufacture anything especially with quick deadlines. People should stop pretending they know how everything works, I sure don't and I work in the business.
Microsoft must be running low on that secret sauce, clouds, and betamax casings. Speakng of which Sony should sue them for infringing on the copyrighted design of the Sony Betamax
lets use some of those bricked ps4's..they have plenty of extra plastic...lmao
My PS4 is fine as is everyone I knows. Watcha talkin' bout? Now about all those RROD'd 360`s
Shortages? Damn near everywhere here in Aus still has them in stock guaranteed for day 1
LOL i just said that at the top, i havent been in one EBgames or JBhifi that has sold out, they all have at least half the allocated stock left for day one console lol, the ps4 on the other hand has been sold out for months with only a chance to get a ps4 start of next year if you pre order now.
Haha yeah I went to pre order my ps4 at JB here in Melbourne because they have a shipment coming in before Christmas so im guaranteed to have it by then (got the KZ SF Bundle) and they said ps4 has been selling like crazy and that they have plenty of x1 stock.
that's alright MS i'm buying 2 first day.. one will be on ebay for a nice price
