In the 101st episode of the PlayStation Blogcast (which celebrates them reaching the 100 episode mark), Sony Computer Entertainment America Boss Jack Tretton was interviewed, and he talked about PlayStation 4 stock. - PSLS
Shots fired! That sounded like a "Put up or shut up" type of statement!
Definitely shots fired.......basically "Fastest selling? Nice BS PR talk...we're kicking your @$$ and you have to lie to try and maintain a similar face"
12,000 in 27 minutes is pretty damn fast!! But of course the competition could just pick a time period that makes the numbers look good for them.
Exactly, which is funny because Xbox isn't selling bad at all. Its hard to do so good and only be second best.
It looks like it's even harder to admit you are second.
In this scenario it's essentially $399.99 vs $499.99.
You can't really beat it at the price it is, seeing it has better hardware.
27,000 in a world of 7 billion is not a lot.
@Mosiac77 Please do not forget your common sense at home next time.
@Mosiac77 The whole 7 billion population does not purchases or has the power to purchase a PS4 on Amazon. By that logic any sales figure for any product is unimpressive because none has managed to sell even a fraction of the world's population. The combined global home consoles market is only about 250 million units and not 7 billion. Besides the sales figure was quoted for Amazon only, which is mostly limited to the US. That is impressive; you downplaying it does not changes the fact.
@ mosiac77, you do know that it's just an example of a single release to Amazon at a particular time, right? Only a MS fanboy will spin it as a negative.
Sonys kicking ass and taking names.
Its good that both are selling well but 12, 000 in 27 min doesn't seem unrealistic at all. And what time slice would change giving amazon 12, 000 consoles and all of them selling out in 27 min? The crazy thing that is slighly overlooked and that is amazing for gamers is how well PS4 has sold in the US. Japan is still waiting...its crazy. But, this means that the early install base will exist and maybe we will see some of the countlesa exclusives that come out in Japan but never in the US. I am glad for voth companies and while I play most games on PS4 and love it, I will buy an xbone eventually and as long as both sell well and competition exists, we win with quality and exclusives. Its early and I can't wait.
More like MS put their jaw out and dared MS to punch them.
Shots fired? Where?
Damn son! Tell 'em Jack. All this xbox sold out stuff is ridiculous. I just saw a day one edition at Walmart tonight. No PS4's of course.
the question you should be asking yourself is "why am i shopping at walmart?"
Probably because Walmart treats their workers like trash to keep prices down. That's why I shop there.
I was at Sam's club they where out of ps4 and wii u but they had xbones
Same here, all my local gamestops have "plenty" xbones in stock, but everytime they get PS4's in, they sell out within 10 minutes of opening.
Just got back from Sam's club and they had at least 15 Xbox Ones on the shelf and not a PS4 in sight. I could care less about the "console war" but I do care when a big company like MS lies outright to its consumers when all we have to do is walk in a store and see for ourselves they're full of it.
the control for your mind is easy when words can be spun around, good job sony.
Oh snap son, he calling somebody a liar.
Petty, very petty.
But true. Very true.
You're sour, very sour.
Uh, no. Not in the least, simply tiring of this mob mentality.Trenton is obviously being guided by his PR monkeys who have thier finger on the pulse of this internet mob. Its the same lip service we heard during e3. So, the popular opinion is that MS is spinning the numbers to look better, lets go with that and take a jab.
They should jab away. Stupid gimmicks like "Kinect voice control" when the only thing needed is a Mic.
Just take the gloves off already. To hell with jabs.
Lmao! You looking for Left Hooks, Right crosses, and ultimately a TKO?
Id put my money on Tretton laying the smackdown on Nelson in a fight or an eating contest or even video games in general lol.
Did he just call Larry a liar?
As he should.
Whether you're an Xbox fan or a PlayStation fan, I think the one thing we should all agree on is that Larry Hryb is one of the most unlikeable men that has ever lived.
Larry is definitely a liar. I mean instead of acknowledging that yes we're now in a close second and we will push through to become the number one in due time, he just outright lie about the facts. I guess that has always been the culture of the MS corporation, with their underhanded dealings, pushing & intimidating small companies to bankruptcy since the 80s with their arrogance attitude. They just never change, even if Bill Gates is no longer in charge.
That was a dropkick to the face.
More like divekick but instead of being a 1 out of 10, it's a 10 out of 10 kick to the jaw
http://i.imgur.com/RACdd49.... I agree.
Sony is on fire!
PS4 definately just dominated!!! Look at their competition though, it's no frikin wonder! Go Sony, go!
Damn M$ employee shot, Larry shot, and believers of the lies shot. All of them for you M$ Fanboys say that Sony have PR monkeys says M$ Fanboys that have exact same no worst PR monkeys that finds Sony mistakes and take a jab on that sorry to say you just can't admit that Sony won this generation LMAO Now stop with the lying lmao
Just use a fire style jutsu to burn away the rest of the hairs greenburger has on his fathead. If it doesnt work then use amaterasu. That should do the trick.
You sad effing people.
@Nocando i actually lol'd at your comment, still lol'ing mostly because idk if you are seriously surprised by downvotes or just don't care. i'm kind of new here but even i could have told you, unless you are fishing for down-votes no good can come from saying anything negative in sony related news...hell not even neutral. for future reference if "XiSasukeUchiha" has more positive upvotes than negative, its prob a good sign not to say anything lol.
Thank you for recognizing talent my good sir
Yummy those tears.
Isn't it funny? watching all the ps4 fanboys in a circle jerk. haha
Says the obvious Xbox fan in a Playstation article.. Is it more sad to be an original participant in the activities to which you are responding or to be the responder? Why did you feel compelled to take time out of your day to come in here with your biased opinion and not only attempt to prose an argument, a flawed one at that but then to insult those to whom to reply?
XBots clowned Sony fans last gen, this gen the tables have turned. Karma's a B*tch huh?
I'm loving every minute of it!
i would say sony actually earned it, it my not be my preferred console having tested both, but my opinions are subjective; as a company however they are doing pretty amazeballs
the people have spoken.
lolz stay true to your customer plain and simple..
Well I'm glad to report that over here in Europe demand is off the charts as well...I drove 200miles (which is alot for us Europeans) to a neighbouring country Italy, when I heard a gameshop there recevied a new shipment of PS4's, good thing I told them by phone to save one for me cause when I arrived they were all sold out. Oh btw I stopped at Xbox corner of the store - not a single person there..although honestly that's not a surprise here in Europe.
"[the PS4 is] far and away the largest launch in console history, not just PlayStation history, gaming history." -gaming history made.. TRUTH>LIES -FACT. (Some of us like to punch holes in lies, like bubbles on bubble wrap.. the Truth is bullet proof)
He is insinuating that Microsoft are creating an artificial feeding frenzy because Xbone is not selling as well.
This comment section has become a feeding frenzy of users trying to outbest each other in ways of brown nosing Sony. It makes my gag reflexes spaz out. The worst part of this "next-gen" launch is the fact that so few PS4's were available,it's as if the launch day came as a surprise to Sony. And as Sony already knows Norway is a Playstation fanboy country by heart and is on the late 2014 Xbox 1 launch waiting list, they hardly sent any PS4's our way. Even if Sony treats us as dirt they know they've won this market. It's a freaking disgraceful launch by Sony and all major retailers in my town are fuming by the fact that they only got a few PS4's each, not even all pre-orders could be fulfilled. People want new gadgets for christmas, the lack of PS4's ruins an epic buying frenzy by happy customers and a extra nice profit for a all retailers. Sony ruined Christmas 2013.
All i read was bla bla bla bla oh and more bla bla bla.Even Sony said they weren't expecting this much demand for it.
"....bla bla bla." Is NOT what I wrote. You choose to blatantly ignore facts and belittle my personal thoughts on this matter? Wow I love Sony by heart but you "Sir" are a fanboy by birth. My statement is valid as I've talked with all big retailers in my town, even they are surprised at Sony choosing to ignore such a "no brainer" christmas gift. They ignore this possibility by NOT having produced enough machines. You said: "Even Sony said they weren't expecting this much demand for it." If you believe such nonsense then I'll gladly take those disagrees as you have to be the most gullible person I've met today. All the past generations of Playstation's has ALWAY been in high demand pre/post launch, claiming otherwise is a blatant lie. Hell even Dice/EA use the same dumb lie to explain server issues and other technical problems at every Battlefield game lauch, every game break sales records but every time they claim the high demand was unthinkable. Lies upon lies I tell you. The thing that saved Sony in the past console generations was the launch date being very different in all territories, thus giving the factories time to produce more machines and meet the demand. Sure some are happy that the PS4 was getting a pretty much worldwide launch within a few weeks, but it means fewer possible people getting it during that launch window. It was spread to thin so even pre-orders couldn't be fulfilled in Norway. My home town way north of Norway with (65000+ inhabitants), its biggest retailer for electronic gadgets got only 35 PS4's...... That's bad whatever way you choose to look at it .
Lol MS idiots just make up random crap every time.
The blogcast is really worth a listen, at least the first 50 minutes so you can listen to Jack's interview. He is such a great guy and his personality really shows in the segment.
If Xbox one was available in 48 countries Xbox one would outsell ps4 by milions
The N4G headline is arguably a bit different in intent to the story itself. 'There's no need for an artificial feeding frenzy for the PS4' implied to me that (most at least) need not go massively out of their way in rushing to get a console at launch when, if they wait, it will only get better anyway. Whereas, even if those might happen to be the thoughts of some people anyway from an individual , human, perspective, the article content was saying close to the opposite- that (from a business point of view) they would like as many people as possible to get it now because that's a prime selling period. Nice N4G headline hook but ambiguous, whether deliberate or not, as it turns out. I'd understand Xbox360 owners going straight out to buy an XboxOne because they've been relatively starved of great exclusives for so long (and it must be remembered that some PS3 owners will buy an XboxOne for its novelties/some exclusives before they buy any other next-gen console, regardless of how pleased they were with the PS3). But for PS3 owners, there have been exclusives right up until now- it hasn't been deprived merely to make the PS4 look better. Therefore, slightly slower sales for the PS4 would actually have been very understandable (if it hadn't been for the PS4's sometimes humourful, always highly detailed/ personable presentations) if that had become the case, as there will be still satisfied PS3 owners fully or possibly intending to get a PS4 in the near future, even though its current price is designed to make a day 1 or close to day 1 purchase more attractive.
If you're looking for one (PS4) and live in the Southern California area, the Walmart near me in Oceanside on Marron rd will have 37 PS4s available tomorrow (Sunday 12/15). I'm friends with the electronics clerk there. Again MARRON rd, (there are 3 Walmarts in Oceanside). I don't know if they will be put out at midnight tonight or tomorrow. Call and ask. Other Walmarts maybe doing the same, so call.
