PS4 Black Friday Bundle Outsells Xbox One Equivalent Soundly at GameStop; Ranked 2nd and 7th

It’s doubtless that Black Friday is a strategic date for shopping in the United States, so it’s not surprising that leading retailer GameStop decided to provide a rich bundle for both the PS4 and the Xbox One.

Turns out the PS4 Bundle is outselling the Xbox One equivalent rather soundly.

not surprised at ALL ..

sony's problem is meeting the demand, if there were more units they may ranked #1

Abriael967d ago

It's already amazing that it beat so many games priced so low.

Eonjay967d ago

To be completely honest, I don't think Xbox One can beat PS4 on Black Friday. Its because Black Friday is the day where people search for the lowest price. Had Gamestop built similarly priced bundles, there may have been less discrepancy. Price is one of Sony's main advantages that the Xbox 360 used to have over the PS3.

I can't wait to see the sales numbers for the PS4 versus Xbox One. Something tells me that it will be a huge win for Sony.

GTgamer967d ago

@PS4beaver
That was the most pointless/random thing ive seen today thanks for that-_- perfect way to waste a bubble.

Bigpappy967d ago

I am not predicting either way. There is a good chance this could be a indicator of how the sales will end up.

I would caution though that this is GameStop Online.
1) Most people don't shop online for Black Friday.
2) GameStop online is not a popular site for most console buyers to shop. Amazon is actually the place the eBay is where most people buy online.

So I will advice waiting a few days to here real numbers.

First thing the guy said when I entered gamestop a few hours ago was " if your looking for the Xbox One we have plenty sir but sorry no PS4's " I just had to laugh Like no thanks dude just here for the $29 ps plus 12 month card :D

prodg52967d ago (Edited 967d ago )

Amazon has now matched gamestop with the $29 ps plus cards so you don't have to fight the crowds today just for plus!

Edit: They also dropped Ratchet and Clank:ITN to $20

Abriael967d ago

LOL. Your gamestop clerk has a sense of humor.

Flames76967d ago

At my gamestop they have the PS4 but cant keep the Xbox One in stock

BoriboyShoGUN966d ago

Nice story flames, I highly doubt that unless you live in a Microsoft community for employees.

We bored with Playstation Domination stories yet?

Naaaaahhhh....

GrandTheftZamboni967d ago

We now bathe in tears of fanboys (those other ones)!

diablocody967d ago

PS4 came out Friday, it is now 12:30pm Saturday here in Australia. Just went to these stores in my area:

JB Hi Fi
EB Games
Target
Big W
K Mart
Dick Smith Electronics
Harvey Norman

All 7 have Xbox One's available from day one
All 7 are sold out of PS4's
Only JB Hi Fi have places available for the second shipment which should be between 20th and 24th of December. The other 6 are sold out of their second shipment and should have stock in January

The best numbers comparison will be next year when both consoles are readily available but at this point PS4 should easily be 3 or 4 to 1

xprs22967d ago

This really is a dumb article. Both systems have sold out so that would say that Microsoft obviously didn't send out as many consoles as the PS4

TheRacingX967d ago

not really, I went to 2 gamestops in my area and both had at least 2 xbones in stock at 2pm on friday, when I asked about PS4 the kid said they were long gone....I believe PS4 demand is higher

Khajiit86967d ago

I accidently clicked agree sorry was meant to be a disagree. Every store in my area has 0 ps4s. Few have xbox ones. Wal mart sold out of black friday ps4s in 5 mins but they still have x1s.

bubblebobble967d ago (Edited 967d ago )

i am a sony fanboy at heart, but i do think xbox have made a great console no question, but where they have gone wrong is making kinect mandatory. if they had not done this the console could have been about £100 cheaper which would have put the console about the £329 mark £20 cheaper than sony maybe if microsoft have a tuff start i think they may revert to this. to me this does seem like a very silly mistake i think any kind of marketing would of suggested this, they should of known this. another oversight in my book was not having halo as a launch title this one game alone would have sold 2 or 3 million day 1 consoles

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF967d ago

Not surprised at all either. Dual shockers has been on a PS4 hype train this whole time.

But Sony fans have told me this whole generation that sales in the USA don't matter. All those months and years in a row that Xbox won was said to not matter. USA isn't the only place.

lol boy do sales matter now. Too bad launch game reviews don't! ha ha!

GuruMeditation967d ago

I think you've entirely missed the point. USA sales mean nothing on their own for either company, America is not the world. PS4 isn't just banking on the states, it is giving the competition a sound thrashing the world over... so in this case, sales do matter. As for launch reviews, they matter much less than sales. More sales=more dev engagement=great games to come. Poor launch titles just mean a mediocre start, little else.

TruthInsider 967d ago

I know, only on Xbone can you get a 1/10 game!

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF966d ago

If the USA didn't matter on their own then Sony wouldn't of released in the USA first and only. They even stiffed the Motherland out of first dibs.

USA is THE most important place in the World for your games to sale. Sony knows this too. They were rattled that MS dominates the USA.

Ahhhhh yes my stock prices are skyrocketing...... Oh wait.

Price makes a huge difference.

jessupj967d ago

I actually do have stock with Sony lol.

Only $1,000 worth, but any time some smart ass MS apologist says something about defending Sony so much because I have stock, I can say "Yes sir, I do have Sony stock. Lawyered".

mediate-this967d ago

You dont have stock. Listen i get it, sony is great, micro is great too lol. But to lie about having stock in sony just sounds immature. If you have stock prove it, otherwise you dont have to lie.

Fanboys are crazy with their lies. Be a gamer not a liar. Sony is on top because they are making the right moves. Ps2 days are near, so dont jimx them with your fake sony stock lies.

dragon82967d ago

Why can't he have stock in Sony? A guy I work with also bought $1000 worth of shares a couple months back in preparation for the PS4 launch. The stock price was decent and everyone knew it was going to be a huge success at launch. I actualy wish I had grabbed some when he did.

DK_Kithuni_71967d ago (Edited 967d ago )

The PlayStation 4 is kicking ass and taking names. So far it looks like Sony has already won this generation. Good times ahead for gamers.

#12 on the list - the Xbox 360 E with Halo 4 + Tomb Raider - is one hell of a deal at $199,99

Bought the bundle myself here in Europe this week. Not as good as the PS3 but one hell of a deal.

LGM313967d ago (Edited 967d ago )

$199 for the PS3 super slim with TLoU and batman kills the xbox bundle.

DK_Kithuni_71967d ago

As I said. Not as good as the PS3.

Xbox 360 and PS3 owners should really get "the other" console at these prices. I love my PS3 and the exclusive games. But at the $200 mark I get to play Halo, Gears, Forza too.

Same goes for the Xbox 360 croud. Get the PS3 and enjoy Uncharted, Resistance, InFamous, Little Big Planet, The Last of Us, Ratchet & Clark, and, and, and.

rainslacker967d ago

There are a lot of great deals out there for PS3 this black friday. I was quite impressed. I think the PS3 and 360 will be pretty popular this season just because of the promoting it's going to get in place of the more expensive consoles which are mostly unavailable. Which is usually what happens the holiday after a new system launches.

LGM313967d ago

The only thing is, there are no new FP games for the 360, for the ps3 ww have TLoU, gt6 etc...

SirBradders967d ago

As much as i love what sony as a company stand for with their playstation brand never count the competition out.

Healthy competition is always welcome because it will always make Sony up their game even more so then they already are and that means as gamers we win even more.

Im not saying go buy an xbox but there is always the uninformed, people who like gimmicky features and/or their ip's which will probably be few in numbers in the long term but will definetly help the competition.
