Xbox One Sixth “Most Gifted” on Amazon; Xbox One and PS4 Games Aren’t Very Popular Gifts Yet

The Holidays are coming, and people are scrambling to get their gifts under the tree. Many in the United States are using Amazon for that purpose, and gifting games, consoles and accessories to their loved ones.

The Xbox one is, at the moment, the most gifted between consoles, while next generation games struggle to make the top of the chart. (PS Vita, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Right now everyone is keeping them for themselves. I know I did.

If I was a parent I woulda bought an Xbox One for my kid. It seems like a great family console to pop in the living room and just use as an entertainment box, and play some awesome looking exclusives like Ryse, Dead Rising, and Titan Fall when it comes out.

EDIT: @disagrees and below:
PlayStation 4 is the superior gaming machine, and I have one in my game room. But Xbox One is the superior family entertainment machine. If Xbox disgusts you to the point that you wouldn't want a free Xbox One after already owning a PS4, you are a sick human being.

Wait, you say it's for the family and then mention 3 very violent (and two of them very bloody) games to play?

@cgoodno it can't be a family machine, snapping to TV and having that side bar thing for sports and shit, and play violent games? That mindset is exactly what killed the Wii/Wii U

If I was a parent I would get them whats on their list. (If I could afford it all)
ForgottenProphecy  +   409d ago
As I said, I don't have kids, so it's impossible to tell what they would want. Being the gamer I am, I plan on raising my kids to be gamers too, so I imagine they would want to play games from Killzone to Dead Rising,
D-riders  +   409d ago
yeah ok, why is that. cause my family loves my ps4
Christopher  +   409d ago
I'm just saying, you kind of switch gears really fast there with just the last of that one sentence. You might want to have a better build up/separation of the two ideas in the future.

And, as you don't have a kid, might I suggest that any one under the age of 13 (at the least) never go near games like DR3 and Ryse? There are a ton of great, less violent/blood/graphic/etc. games out there.

Example: LEGO Marvel. Heck, this adult kid loves it more than AC4 (haven't played KZ yet).

*** If Xbox disgusts you to the point that you wouldn't want a free Xbox One after already owning a PS4, you are a sick human being.***

Agree with this. At the least, give it to someone who does want it. Or to a family who can't afford one. Or something.

God forbid a PlayStation fan says something nice about Xbox.
sprinterboy  +   409d ago

Ps4 is great plus it has Netflix and lovefilm, movie/music unlimited and other apps. Knack and fifa are great for kids and dad and son footie action, playroom for the family, skylanders, cod. Do I need to go on, ps4 and xbone are for hardcore and family straight out the box.
miyamoto  +   409d ago
I have a ps3 for the little nephews and not a single God of War or Resident Evil was bought along with it.

But its packed in with
LBP 1&2
LBP Karting
Lego Batman 1&2
Lego Star Wars Trilogy
Lego Indiana Jones 1&2
Lego Marvel Super Heroes
Eye Pet 1&2
Sports Champion 1&2
Let's Start the Party 1&2

And its also used extensively for Netflix and You Tube watching Barney and Super Simple Songs

Now that is family entertainment and responsible guardianhood, my friend,

Why do PS fans attack people and families for their choices? Had he said "PS4" the comments would have been all praise and pats on the back. So much insecurity.

PS4 being the superior gaming machine is questionable. More powerful yes, superior gaming machine who knows?

For the people below highlighting the violent games that shouldn't be played by kids, you obviously don't have kids of your own.
Parents buy COD, Battlefield, Resi etc for their children and don't give it a second thought. They think they are 'just' games. If they actually sat down and checked whats on the screen, maybe they wouldn't buy them. Maybe.
Ch1d0r1  +   408d ago
Every kid i know has a 3ds and they love it. So thats my recomendation. Get them whichever handheld Nintendo releases.

You might think Xbox One is the superior family entertainment machine because thats what they are advertising it as. If you need an entertainment box why don't you just get a roku or apple tv and save yourself 400 dollars.

Reason being is the PS4 is currently out of stock.

E.G. There isn't any consoles at all! More are being made though.

Again, Facts get one marked for trolling, SHM...

Ps4 isn't sold out, at least not in my area. GameStops have been getting shipments every week same with the X1. They do sell out quick once we get them, but there's supply out there, the articles are just hype.
Godz Kastro  +   409d ago
Go figure...under powered and overpriced (so they say) yet still manages to draw people in and sell like hot cakes. Good Job MS!

If you are a parent and or cant afford your own console you are going to buy the ps4 or recieve one. 100 cheaper is the deal breaker here. Which is great less kids on xbox live

Buying my son Lego avengers for his xbox one. I rather get him toys, but there are no kids his age where he lives and like his daddy, he is a gamer.
KonsoruMasuta  +   409d ago
Why do you hate your son?
UnHoly_One  +   409d ago
That was uncalled for and completely out of line.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

Let the man raise his son how he wishes.

He bought his son a video game. Why does it matter what system it's on?

Some parents don't buy ANYTHING for their children, yet they walk around with the latest smart phones.

I would have loved a Lego Avengers game when I was a child. I couldn't give two shits about what console it was on.
JasonKCK  +   409d ago
The amount of hate is incredible.
SITH  +   409d ago
Grow up kid.
Eonjay  +   409d ago
You can't really go by this. You may not realize it but Amazon has removed all traces of the Launch PS4 from their site including the lists it was on and have replaced it with a simple "Playstation 4" listing.

The launch PS4 was also removed from best sellers of 2013. If it ranked higher on the gifted list, you wouldn't be able to tell because the product has vanished from their listings.

It was taken down about a week ago.

My wife's friend "A Soccer MOM" had notest I had bought a PS4 she told me that her sons had asked for an XNOX ONE I then told her I bought mine for $400 and that the XBOX ONE was $500.

I bet you couldn't guess which one peeked her interest....
Finch  +   409d ago
So do you really think the kid that wanted the xbox now thanks you for talking his mom out of what he wanted.

So what do you want I need to talk to your Mom.

The Xbox one will be the underdog again this gen and will fare well. So much going against it early on...

I'm lovin mine.

Keep on trolling.
How the hell is this trolling?! You people on this site... He was just stating an opinion. Don't get me wrong, I disagree with him.

A) he isn't trolling at all.

B)I'm confused. You don't think it will be the underdog this gen? You think the PS4 is the underdog? Or, do you think it won't fare well? Both consoles broke records from their sales last gen and you don't think that is a sign it will do just fine?

Both systems will do great. Jeez people.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   409d ago
I wouldn't really say underdog. It what way was Xbox 360 an underdog?
kewlkat007  +   409d ago
Looking at the PS2 prior sales yeah...Xbox 1 selling like 22 million consoles..

Again Ms started on the wrong end this gen but have rebounded..

Doesn't that show people want the PS4 for themselves????
idontcare  +   409d ago
i bet there will be a lot of people selling their PS4s to buy XB1s ... at the latest when they get to play on the XB1 at a friend.

In Amazon.co.uk xbox one stands at rank 47 and ps4 stands at rank 8. Just saying
