Microsoft: We're Working Unbelievably Hard To Match Demand

Last time there was a console launch Phil Harrison was batting for the other team as president of SCE Worldwide Studios. Now he's corporate vice President at Microsoft, and leading the way with cloud computing and opening up opportunities for independent development on the platform. (Phil Harrison, Xbox One)

Traitor.?

He's an inside agent.

Because of him, MS did not know Sony were working with amd to create the biggest custom chip for the PS4.

Double agent. I think he'll be at ninty soon.

He's a double agent man

It took them more than month to sell out of the Xbox one launch edition. PS4 launch edition sold out in days with the PS4 having more available for purchase.

Ofcourse they are this is super logical

last i heard gamestops and other stores have extras on hand for people who havent preordered.

Where is this demand coming from?
True_Samurai  +   337d ago
This might sound too logical but maybe MS was able to manufacture more and send them there?
Sayai jin  +   337d ago
GrizzliS1987 - Gamestop and BB will have extra XB1's on hand on launch day just as they had extra PS4's.
nukeitall  +   337d ago
MS already announced they will have extra consoles for walk-ins. Allocation for pre-orders are conservative to ensure everyone that orders gets the console.

Imagine the sh1tstorm otherwise!

Demand is already there with all pre-orders available, sold out prior to launch!

Blah, blah, blah, blah, The entire article is just your standardised scripted crap.

At least try to add something new & quit with all the patronising PR BS!!
Nujabes_  +   337d ago
No different than your usual Jack Tretton PR babbling but I don't see you complaining about these. Wonder why?
1nsomniac  +   337d ago
If he responded with the exact same pretentious, unrealastic crap that he has spoken here then of course i would say the same. Who are you to tell me i wouldnt!?
Nocando  +   336d ago
Maybe you and your dumb avatar should sit out a few.
1nsomniac  +   336d ago
haha maybe you should let the grown ups talk..
Serjikal_Strike  +   337d ago
I highly doubt a "demand"
Fizzgig  +   337d ago
Don't be silly. 5 people demand it, the rest are just curious...
GusBricker  +   337d ago
It'll sell out for Christmas, etc.

After that, that's when the real story begins.
christocolus  +   337d ago
Yeah..you just keep pumping out every xbx one you guys can....dont want any fans getting dissapointed.
etownone  +   337d ago
My girl is on line for me right now while I'm at work...
Hopefully I'll get one tonight.
kewlkat007  +   336d ago
That's nice of your woman...what item will you stand in line for her for?
etownone  +   336d ago
I'll hook her up come Christmas. Obviously.
5eriously  +   337d ago
Going by the preorder interest this should not be tooooooo difficult an task at all!

PS: I will see if I have to eat my words soon!

Preorder interest? Where on earth did you get the notion that the preorder interest for the xbx one wasnt high? Even sonys yoshida acknowledges that they will have very stiff competition from ms but you fanboys still come up with your silly comments... where do you guys come out from?
5eriously  +   336d ago
We will see soon enough wont we? There are only a million to beat in the America's, which is not much in numbers for NA so why so touchy if you are so sure about yourself. Yoshida speak out of respect unlike M$ rep's but he does not control the PS4 demand nor preorder popularity.

So soon we will know. I cannot wait for the official figures next week and every month thereafter! This is going to be big fun!
mrpsychoticstalker  +   337d ago
Come on dudes. What competition? Just throw another $1billion on games, studios and call it a night. MS is too big to fail!
christocolus  +   336d ago
Lol..
Goku781  +   336d ago
10 people outside and an empty store in is not what I would call demand.
gpturbo81  +   336d ago
meaning we have all the 8 year olds slaving non stop in our sweatshops
