Best Buy PR: “We’ve Sold Many More PS4′s Than Xbox One’s”

Dylan Z of iGR reports: "While covering Best Buy's Ultimate Gamers Showdown, Madden 25 tournament. I inquired as to which next-gen console was currently selling better at the retailer, I was given a statement by Best Buy's Senior PR staff that was on-site." (PS4, Xbox One)

Truth we already knew. But it's great to hear it from an official source.

It also makes Major Nelson's lies look even more blatant. How Xbox fans don't see through this spin is beyond me...

But whatever, the King has returned. As ever, watch your throne.

There's no arguing about it the PS4 is definitely the most powerful console on the market in terms of specs. However the best is matter of opinion.

Glorious God Gamers do not have to worry. We get the best of ALL worlds.

I was at Target doing some Christmas shopping just now and I saw they were sold out of PS4s and had 5 Xbox Ones on the shelf. Glad I preordered my PS4 and got it launch day.

All this parading a bout 1 Best buy store saying they sold more PS4 in Minnesota. Should have gone to New York and L.A. It makes no sense reporting something like this, which could be completely made up, when the real numbers don't support the notion being promoted.

The fact is X1 is doing just as well as PS4 or better, in the U.S. at a higher price point. So you can talk stock levels and who says this and that. Don't mean a darn thing. The sales numbers are the only facts here.

Sony started before M$ and is responsible for stocking PS4, just as M$ is responsible for X1 stock supplies. Not a good excuse.

I agree you shouldn't go off of one or two best buys to declare which system sells better. But Best Buy’s Senior PR team works for corporate Best Buy, not a single store, that's why it is significant.

I am curious to how you know MS is doing as good or better than Sony in the US? We don't have updated numbers from Sony, only from Microsoft. Are you basing that off of hope or fact?

On the price point, the PS3 outsold the 360 worldwide since launch at a more significant price difference...

A medium sized city in Minnesota is more representative than LA and NY actually. Because when you add up all the cities in the midwest which behave generally in the same way it's a bigger number than LA and NY.

Also arguably larger cities are more in favor of PlayStation because there's more minorities and more democratic people that research in what they buy. The PlayStation gamer is more more diverse when you include the asian gamers coming from the RPG side, the latino population which is a bigger presence coming from the PS1 and PS2 days, and African American in which you get the sense they also prefer PlayStation just slightly more but a lot of them switched to xbox 360 last generation. However in general bigger cities you see a bigger ratio in favor of PlayStation while in the midwest people are generally less informed about news.

And lastly this article debunks Major Nelson. It's shipped not sold 2million.

I live in Downey, CA and I went to 4 different tartgets, GameStops and Best Buys around the LA area and they do have a lot of Xbox One in stock but none PS4 systems. I'll probably have to wait till next year around March or April when the PS4 demand slows down.

Ps4 sold out by 3am. X1 sold 8 by then. When I asked my boss how many x1 were left at 8pm she said, "around 7 or 8; I don't get it."

Bigpappy also this is another unsourced rumor from a blog site claiming "Senior PR staff said", basicly no more creditability than any random fanboy writing the opposite saying he called Bestbuy corporate. Bestbuy policy doesnt officially divulge sales to public...I also noticed the writer gets defensive and engages any negative comments that don't believe him in the comments section like William Usher at cinemablend....sites like this also were constantly running with those negative production issue rumors for X1, so many kinect spying NSA stories, UI is broken, eSRam yield issues, etc. Conveniently these same blogs have forgotten those lies and now looking for new hit headlines. I might as well ask all the n4g marketing experts, n4g analysts, and n4g game devs who sold more at Toys R Us in Tibet. lol

@ Bigpappy , funny you should say sales number are the only facts here.

So here's the crystal facts, as of Dec 7 Sony sold 2.4 million PS4 whereas MS sold 1.9 million XBone.

How's that for a fact? I know it's hard to swallow for XBone fanboys, but as a former MS executive once said, #Dealwithit!

And the gap will only get bigger and bigger when the PS4 is released in Asia next week and Japan in Feb. Be prepared for the incoming shitstorm!

Yep, at Walmart the other night, had a few Xbox Ones in the case, but completely sold out of PS4s.

Not exactly an accurate way to judge how they're selling but its impressive to see how well the PS4 appears to be doing so far.

Major Nelson is just repeating what the NPD declared.
Also fastest selling console =/= console sells the most.

You can have a product that sells faster than another product. While also having a product that sells the most overall.

Honestly people takes these sales numbers way too seriously. At the end of the day you still got to pay bills, work and etc. So why should it matter so much?

The PS4 sold over a million units in 24 hours, while the Xbox One did just under a million in 9 days. Still trying to figure out how the "Xbox One is the fastest selling console in NA" according to Major Nelson.

He said fastest selling in US. Sony's 1mil was split between US and canada.

Mugen_mind  +   627d ago
People, Sony sold one million units in 24 hours in two countries while M$ did a million in 13 countries. So how does that add up to being equal and how many were actual sold in NA in 24 hours for M$? Side note, no lie I use to work for GameStop as a Manger and what I was told is that M$ counts systems in retail inventory as being sold because retail companies have to pay for those consoles in order to sell them in their stores.
badz149  +   627d ago

NOOONE can comprehend MS's logic! apparently, 900k comes after 1mil in MS world!

and for those still saying in US ONLY, Major "spin" Nelson said "NA"!
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   627d ago
It's simple actually, MS said Xbox One is the fastest selling ON AVERAGE, not fastest selling at any given moment. So it's all in how many days you're counting when making said average.

ALERT: My numbers probably will be off as I'm not fact checking! This is just an example, ok?

Let's say PS4 sold more than 1m in 24 hours, but it's still around 1,5m for NA as there's been hardly any restocking... For the average you'll take 1.5m and divide by the 5 weeks since release. This will giive 43k PS4s sold per day.

Now let's say Xbox One had sold some 900k on it first weekend in NA (which already shows that this whole "fastest selling" is kinda nonsense) but they get to keep selling and are now at some 1.3m. With 4 weeks since release, MS would be at 46k Xbox One sold per day, so it's faster on a average (total number of days accounted).

Unfortunatelly, this holds little to no water... Not that it's MS's problem, but Sony simply can't met demand, so although technically being one week more in the market than MS, Sony didn't really have 5 weeks selling PS4... With luck they had barelly 2 weeks if you go and account how long they remain on stock. While Xbox One, with some eventual exceptions, was available throughout every day of those 4 weeks.

So although they are not lying (they are not even fluffing the numbers, mind you and it's not like Sony's restocking capability is of any concern for MS), the number here still doesn't represent demand, as most people would expect from the term "fastest selling".

Put more PS4s out there and they'll be gone in minutes (just happened today on Amazon), while Xbox One are still available just fine (which is not a bad thing for MS, actually), which means they'll keep steadily selling, while PS4 only receives short bumps before it's sold out again. So obviously PS4 demand is higher and it actually selling faster whenever it's available, but it's simply not available most of the time.

Quite frankly, this is nothing worth caring about anyway. Even total sold is a bit irrelevant right now for either MS or Sony... As much as Sony and MS can put out before next year will be probably sold by Xmas... We'll only see whatever trend is being setted actually translated into numbers next year, when production will no longer be a limiting factor and the early craze has worn off.

cleft5  +   627d ago
A lot of people have their head buried in the sand right now and they just don't want to see the truth. Right now the Xbox is selling well enough, but that is too the early adopters. With that said, the truth is that Microsoft is meeting the demand for the Xbox One with enough supply and still being out sold by the PS4. Now what do you think is going to happen when the PS4 is readily available to whoever wants it and so is the Xbox One. When that happens Microsoft is going to be outsold by Sony vastly. By the time Microsoft can lower the Xbox One by $100 Sony will be able to lower the PS4 by the same amount if they want too. The PS4 is a mass market device at a mass market price the same way the 360 was when it launched.

I will spend the rest of my own miserable existence and scour search engines looking for news that will make MS look bad. I will attack anyone that gives a constructive well thought out comment that does not bash MS... Greatness awaits!
Edit: i now work for target, apparently, and we have 5,000 X1 sitting on a shelf, we received 2 billion PS4, but sold out in 2.4 seconds. Some guys kid looked at X1, but he slapped him.

Edit: rainstorm... If you do not like it, you can leave too...

Now I'm not denying that PS4 is selling more than X1 - it had a week head start, is releasing in more territories and is more liked among the community due largely in part to MS's DRM fiasco, but to completely deny the notion that the X1 is just as popular or more than the PS4 in certain areas, is just ignorance and/or belligerence on your part.

We'll no wonder why GameStop is a revolving door for employees.. No one steps up to try and sell products you don't have to bash one or the other console to sell it just be informative and truthful on what they both can do and get it sold.

It's funny now that I think about it the rare times I walk into a gamestop all they ever try to push is pre orders.. Not much effort in up selling but I'm sure they don't pay all that we'll either so I probably wouldn't put much effort in it my self..

You must go to bed all warm and cozy after your round of phone calls to find out if any ps4 or xb1 are still on shelves. I would stop if I was you I can't imagine the dramatic effect it would have on you if you was to find out that their is a ps4 on some stores shelf..

I can attest to this being fact just from when I picked my PS4 up on Sunday! There were 40 to 45 people in front of me, with 60 or more behind me! The line was from the back of the store to the front entrance, and this is only the PS4 line.

While the Xbox1 line was.....how can I put it lightly!? meager in comparison! situated by the checkout counter, some could say they were hudled at the counter like players in a football game.

The thing about this instant is that everyone from both lines had tickets that were passed out prior to being let into the store.

As far as ratio goes concerning which was more popular and, which was also going to sell more at the space in time I occupied at the moment! I'd say 5 to 1 in the PS4 favor, and that's not me being generous!

Can't we just be happy these things are selling and we're not dealing with some kind of crappy crash/drought?

One store, but its the same all over the world. PS4 sales dominate the X1. MS likes to state that the X1 18 day sales are 2 million so it sounds close to the PS4's 2.1 million, but we haven't had an 18 day number for the PS4 yet.....and we all know its going to smash the X1's numbers even further.

PS4 is the most wanted, best selling console ( 1 MILLION IN 24 SINGLE HOURS in NA, don't for get that).

More shucking and jiving from M$. PS4 sold out at launch twice In 24h. XBoned took all most 3 weeks to sell less units. M$ is brilliant They are flooding north america with xBones. Because they are Know two things. 1 PS4 can't meet the demand for their system. Some people are planning to buy both And PS4 is not available so they buy A XBone. it's Christmas parents want to buy their kids the present they want A new game console PS4 not available So they by a XBoned. 2 PS4 is going to destroy XBone worldwide. So m$ is delaying Launching all over the world in concentrating on the US market only so they can have a large supply were They will sell the most console the USA. Only 13 countries PS4 21 .m$ is surrendering around the world retreating digging In putting all the marbles in one bag in the US.

Microsoft is catching up you're just ignoring the facts.

Microsoft sold 909,000 thousands units in a week. Sony had a week start on them too in the US.

For Microsoft to have sold 2 million units and last week we heard Sony sold 2.1 million, is a sign people prefer a certain console over another

Microsoft has 48 million x box live users. Did you really think they would go Sony?

The x box 1 has dedicated servers, better UI, better features and functionality, more games. Sorry i know Sony hardcore fans find it hard to accept reality, but not everyone is keen on 400 console that only plays games at a better resolution.

"The x box 1 has dedicated servers,"

Sigh. Is this something that X1 fans just simply don't understand? Dedicated severs aren't a MS exclusive feature.....ANY GAME can have those. I could play BF4 on PS4 right now and play dedicated servers.

As for better UI, that's pure opinion, Mine is that the simpler, faster, less cluttered and no advert filled PS4 UI is better.

As for more games, actually at launch the PS4 had more games available to play than the X1....but i think you mean exclusives, in that case you are right....but we all know pumping out exclusives is Sony's game. Just look at the PS3, the PS4 will be no different.

Both Evilsnuggle and You (KNWS) make Valid points. When there are two major console companies battling at near the same release date with both having 80+ mil from previous generations then you know that their new consoles will have fanboys from both wanting the NEWEST ONES!!! Both console manufactures are going to have constraints when it comes to supply because they are new to the market! Cost usually isn't a big deal for the GAMERS (Fanboys) of said console so those people will always buy whichever console they like regardless of price. It's not so hard to believe any numbers at any rate at this point because they both had 80+ million fans! Like most have said before me, If you are a numbers guy wait till the HYPE dies down and the CASUAL gamers buy these consoles. Only then can you get a good perspective of how well they will sell. Remember guys this is a Marathon not a Sprint! I love my PS4 but will never bash anyone for wanting a XB1! It's personal preference and in the end I just would love a cross-platform online battles because that would be so much fun for all of us GAMERS! Have a good day guys! Game on!

Not true at my BB in NC, and many of the GS also sold more X1s. You have the #s, it is close, just enjoy your console of choice.

Enjoy your slide show lol, it's like a zombie disco, somebody turn off the damn strobe lights lmao!

Meanwhile, Dying Light is cooking nicely and will be the true next gen zombie game we all deserve.

Good thing is it's multi-plat too, so there'll be no squabbling. Can't see DR3 selling much after it comes out and it certainly won't be shifting XBones from shelves at that point.

I still think it was a rotten move for MS to hold DR3 back from 360 to try to create a reason to buy XBone. Sony could have done the same with TLOU, but therein lies the difference...

Just another worthless article being submitted for the sole purpose of rallying up a fanboy base. Honestly, who the hell really cares about the number of consoles one company sells over another? Do these numbers affect peoples' gaming experience? Probably not. So why do people even buy into this propaganda crap? -_-

When It's something positive about Xbox One:"It's PR bullshit"!
When It's something positive about PS4:"That's true! PS4 is killing Xbox One"!
Fanboys are so annoying.

Lol ps4 is the top selling console in north america……….
PharaohX  +   626d ago
It really does not matter. These are stupid pissing matches. Let's figure one smart thing out. PS4 is selling out because they can't keep up with demand. Microsoft is selling consistently well because they are keeping up with demand. There are no PS4's in most stores stock. You can find a Xbox One in most stores. I think smart money would want to have product on shelves available for customers instead of not having stock. Guess what if your product is not in stock someone who was not considering you might just pick you up...
