PlayStation 4′s Selling 3 to 1 vs. Xbox One on Amazon

Karam Elahi reports from SpawnFirst: "The PlayStation 4 has been a hot item every time it goes on sale at any retailer, online or brick and mortar. The Xbox One is also selling as respectable numbers, but the trends have been pointing to Sony’s PlayStation 4 doing much better sales-wise whenever the console is in stock...As long as the number of units available at Amazon are under 999, one can add in any amount to their cart and see the left-over amounts showing actual quantities available. " (PS4, Xbox One)

Not surprised in the slightest.

If the PS4 is outselling the X1 this much with "a bad launch lineup".......imagine how it's going to fair when it has the likes of Uncharted 4, Infamous SS, Driveclub and all the other exclusives Sony's 1st party devs are making get released. The numbers will be even more insane, people will want it even more than they do now. I feel sorry for Sony, demand is only going to increase.

"PS4 did everything right from there very first announcement."

Yep, giving gamers what they want in 2013 + having a reputation spanning 2 decades of giving gamers what they want = recipe for success.

@mikeslemonade

Why would anyone take Jokesonyou seriously? Or any other of those guys in that camp.

Not surprising after the crap M$ tried to pull, the xbox has the weaker specs while being more expensive, with Sony having far better first party support and 3rd party games looking better on the PS4 the choice is a simple one.

With the Wii-U pretty much being a "secondary console" at best and the Xbox One dead in the water everywhere except NA and the UK, looks like Sony is going to have their third steamroll generation.

As an owner of their handheld, I do hope the PS4's success translates into more titles for the Vita. What a wonderful piece of kit...

See you on PSN in a few years when you finally decide to buy a PS4.. lol

And from the graph the ratio is actually closer 7 to 1. They are referring to the PS4 launch edition only when they say 3 to 1. Just do the math yourself.., take the X number over the y number for each line.

I don't even see a need for an article stating this. Why? Because you would have to be blind to not think the PS4 is selling literally as many units as Sony can manufacture.

I have been scanning the net the past week now trying to score a PS4 for a friend and up until yesterday I always just seem to miss getting one. The XBOX ONE on the other hand has been on various sites and stores shelves the past several days. Not for minutes or hours but days. I can walk into Best Buy, WalMart and Target right this minute in my area and walk out with an X1.

Best Buy in my area just listed PS4's today so I scored one there. Purchased it online and went in and picked it up. Nobody else in my area has PS4's. I was out shopping most of the day today and I could've scored more XBOX ONE consoles than friends I know that game. That's not fanboy speak, that's reality.

A price drop for the XBoner incoming in 5....4....3...2...

MS will be forced to drop the price with these sales. It will be 400 dollars in a few months. They either make it work without the Kinect and drop that or take a big hit on every sale and keep it. Either way that price drop is coming very soon.I'm guessing a couple of months after Titanfall launches unless that game is SO GODLIKE it makes the bone to fly off the shelves......which is highly doubtfull for a new IP to do.

We'll see.

I'm off (heading out from work) to spend the Christmas with my wife and kids. Lucky for me I only have one night of work on the 25th so I might be able to get some gaming done this month.

vigilante_man  +   369d ago
Always the way my friend.

First lets congratulate both Sony and Microsoft for an amazing end to the year. I am loving my PS4 and I bet everyone who has a XB1 is loving theirs too. Someone has to come out on top in sales and with a lower price and more focus on games its Sony at the moment but well done to both. Impressive sales figures all around.

But I have to agree with the article. Just this morning - 6:00am - I was at a large Sainsbury's supermarket and they had 11 XB1s for sale but were completely sold out of PS4s. The assistant told me all PS4s just fly whenever they are in.

PS4 is THE thing to have this year. No one can predict these things. They just seem to happen.
Bigpappy  +   370d ago
This a rumor, not news. Nothing accurate or offical about it.

I would not be surprised if ps4 sells more at the much lower price, but this chart is not from good data. You guys are too quick to accept anything supporting your desire

I've been hearing this 3 and 5 to 1 stuff before launch. It hasn't been supported by real numbers so far. When the real numbers release, you are going to tell me sony didn't have supply. It is obvious rigt now they don't have supply to sell no 3:1.

^bear and the cub

As oppose to zombie stats?? This one is a public store and using there accounting system to show there unbiased data. Sony or Microsoft didn't tell Amazon to say how many units they have in stock.

So this not a rumor. PS4 is outselling X1 by a wide margin. And judging from the graph, it's more than 3 to 1 when you account the slope and the multiple skus. Just from my estimates on the slopes of the line, the ratio is actually closer to 7:1. The 3:1 was derived soley from the PS4 launch edition line.

If price was the deciding factor in consoles, the WiiU would be sold out instead...

So a graph that consists of data taken over a 3 hour time frame is supposed to correlate to total sales? AND this is only being from one online retailer. While I appreciate the methods done to create this graph, the time frame of the study does not allow for a "3:1" conclusion to be made on the scale that many of you are making

That's a lie. Amazon has Xbox One in stock. Just go to their page right now and you can even see they have 1click shopping available for it.

The PS4 on the other hand constantly goes out of stock. And that shows because when you go to PS4 system pages all you see is "available from these sellers".

Which means amazon store runs out of PS4 systems and the people selling them are scalpers

Using a trusty measuring device and a calculator to extrapolate the graph into actual real world numbers, this shows the following data:

PS4 sold 1922 total units between 14:21 and 17:33, which comes out to 9.02 per minute.

Xbox One sold 266 units between 15:18 and 17:34, which comes out to 1.96 per minute.

During the time frame when both consoles were available at the same time (15:18 to 17:33), the PS4 sold 1091 units and sold out (compared to 266 for the Xbox One, with 162 remaining unsold).

So with this logic the PS4 should be around 6 million sold vs 2 million for XBone? I don't understand the graph. It shows less XBone in Stock than PS4'S. Doesn't make much sense and isn't very scientific. Don't know why people would take this as any indication of future sales numbers. I don't know why their are so many comments basically about nothing. Matter of fact, I don't even know why I am commenting about this.

bessy67  +   370d ago
I don't see how this is an indicator of anything. Amazon finally got some PS4's in stock and it sold out. MS has been supplying a steady stream of X1's all along.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   370d ago
How do you not see what that indicates? X1 has had a steady stream all along, whereas PS4 has been sold out/haven't been able to keep up with demand. Clearly the PS4 is the most wanted console.

This isn't just normal demand, its record breaking (literally). Demand like the demand for the PS4 is a double edged sword though.

@below

"Yeah, that tells me Sony is having supply issues."

Exactly........because the demand is record breaking. X1 = can supply for normal demand, PS4 = can't supply for record breaking demand. As i said, double edged sword. MS doesn't have any supply problems because there isn't that sort of demand for it.

Wrong Lukas ps4 finally has supply, X1 is currently sold out which is why ps4 went up to #1 on bestsellers and that's why X1 is on the "most wished for" list above ps4, the only X1 was available are through higher priced affiliate retailers on Amazon, check yourself:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/mo...

Both trade places on Amazon depending on stock or will you say the same when X1 is higher than ps4 on Amazon due to sellouts?
mikeslemonade  +   370d ago
^Bessy

You haven't been following that the PS4 has been in the #1 spot since Friday with the arrow pointed up half of the time. Also all 4 skus are sold out currently. That easily negates your "MS supplying a steady stream" comment.

While X1 on the graph has never been #1 since they launched and the graph indicates that sales plateaued because their line never crosses zero. If X1's demand were even close to the PS4's demand it would sell out in a timely fashion, but instead even with considerbly less supply it sells out at a considerable slower rate.

^4show
At this point I'm done debating. I shouldn't have to debate anymore as it's conclusive that PS4 outselling the X1 by a wide margin and the gap is getting bigger. I will let the numbers speak for themselves once the monthly or weekly "report cards" come out.

That was a different scenario. PS3 outselling 360 eventually actually supports the PS4 more because the PlayStation brand and exclusives basically won the console war last generation. Now the PS4(PlayStation brand) being the cheaper system while coming out at the same time as X1 and with more exclusives. PS4 is in better position than PS3 was ever in.

It's really sad you can't enjoy your Xbox One if the PS4 outsells it (which it is, anyone not drawing that conclusion seriously misunderstand how supply and demand relation works)

Why will people go through the stress of trying to prove so badly which console is selling more than the other or faster? Why not just exercise some patience and wait for the next sales figures to get released then we can all see it for ourselves if these ratios tally up to the actual figures.

Great news for Sony. It looks like they are finally reaching a point where they are meeting demand... At least in the US. I just finished some Christmas shopping, and there were quite a few ps4s on the shelf. A lot of people will be happy on Christmas morning.

I'm not sure why we keep getting these ps4 vs xb1 sales articles. They are both doing historically well, but more importantly, 2014 looks to be AMAZING, regardless of which console you have (and even more so if you have both. If. 3:1 is a actual ratio, then we might see a price drop to go along with the xb1 titanfall release... Gotta love healthy competition.

What it shows to anyone with more than 3 functioning brain cells, admittedly that counts out quite a few people on this site is that the Amazon is receiving far less consistent stocking of the PS4. Thus you have a pent up demand that all jumps at once as soon as it becomes available. There is absolutely nothing new here at all. MS is not experiencing as much pent up demand because they have managed to maintain a far more consistent supply of their consoles.

This is akin to having 2 water fountains, one supplied by a pipe with consistent water flow and one being supplied by a water bucket.

With the fountain supplied by a pipe everyone gets a drink in a timely fashion and you don't end up with a huge line up.

With the fountain supplied by the bucket you have people waiting for a drink. Once the bucket supplies the fountain you get a mad dash and chaos at the fountain until the bucket runs out. Then another crowd forms waiting for another mad dash when the next bucket shows up.

This is simply economics people. Supply and Demand. You cannot measure one without the other. Each of the variable supplies the needed contrast to provide proper perspective and analysis of the data.

Simply put if you do not know what your true available supply is then you do not know what your true demand is.

You know when your dealing with Fan boys. They disagree with anything factual if it runs contrary to what their little brains think is untrue or does not harmonize with the Legions hooked into the one shared brain.....
You Praise Sony PS4 - Agrees
You Criticize Xbox One - Agrees
You Praise Xbox One - Disagrees
You state a Truth and yet is Negative to Sony PS4 - Disagrees
You state an Untruth and yet is Negative to Xbox One you get - Agrees
LOL You silly Girls!

Should i reply with a "lil girl are you mad that they dont agree with you". Its called opinion, and mayority has the same opinion here. If you dont like it, u can
a)avoid commenting here
b)stop comming to this site
c)deal with it
I even gave a ms option :)
LogicStomper  +   370d ago
So you're saying opinion beats fact, and if we can't handle it we should avoid commenting?

Silly logic is silly.

@ PharaohX, If what you are saying is true, then that proves the PS4 have a lot more people on their side, right???

N4G isnt exactly representative of the wider public... Thankfully!

I'm in the PS4 camp too, but N4G is crazytown whatever angle you approach it from.

Lol, they should rename this site to The Westboro Sony Baptist Church. Sony is a lot of you guys God, isn't it??

Enjoy the lies from Sony and act like they don't exist. And I can find more sources about them LYING about the DRM that they were gonna do, just like Microsoft. Lol.

Maybe one day sony will deliver some actual numbers. They did not during latest NPD data. Why is still a mistery...or maybe not
GraveLord  +   370d ago
PS4 was #1.
Vita is dead.
PS3 is in decline.

They would look bad if they only provided numbers for PS4 and not for everything else.
Ko_Uraki  +   370d ago
According to the estimate Ps4 was #1 only by 200k. I still have to find an evidence that ps4 is outselling one 3:1 or 4:1 in the U.S. .

Sony hasn't released NPD numbers for well over a year now. 3 years ago, NPD actually stopped releasing console sales numbers on their own, and instead only list the top 10 software title sales. A company could opt to release their own NPD numbers though. MS is the only company that opted to do so, probably since NPD is a US company, it made them look good, since MS dominant territory is the US.

I do believe NPD still issues monthly reports on console sales, but detailed numbers aren't usually given unless it's an overall number. Usually just comparison data with increases and decreases in actual sales. From these reports, and other information given by other sources, the actual numbers can usually be figured out for each console.

It's a no brainer 100$ less smaller and better looking more powerful better controller etc every one wants a PS4 it's the must have console of this generation.
KNWS  +   370d ago
The source is Neogaf for this article, of course its real lol.

The numbers released by Sony and Microsoft tell a different story and more reality.

Sony is leading in number of units sold. 1.5 to 1 over Microsoft. 3 to 1 has no base in reality only for Sony fans over at Neogaf and here.

The people have spoken, ps4 is a must get. The first ps4 launch proves how crazy people want it and still shows. They have done something magical in the system. To me it feels like the ps2 on steroids. Give the people what they actually want and they will go nuts cause you actually did it. Thank you sony.

Belking  +   370d ago
All these ps outselling xb1 3 to 1 and 4 to 1 articles but yet they are still close in sales....lol Don't believe the hype people. The only numbers that cont are the ones released by sony and ms and so far we all know that 3 to 1 stuff is all jizz..lol
LogicStomper  +   370d ago
Actually none of those numbers count. Why should one person buy a PS4 if it's sold more? Apart from following the crowd, sales don't mean anything else for the two consoles.
jessupj  +   369d ago
Since you have current numbers do you mind giving me a look as well? I'm very interested to see who's sold what. Cheers.

I love Sony as much as the next core gamer, but right now I don't think the PS4 is out selling the xbone 3 to 1.

I could be very wrong, however, considering how many markets the PS4 has been released in.

In any case I think the ratio will definitely be 3 to 1 is Sony's favour in a year or a bit more.

I thought there would be many more blind people lining up to buy an xbone, easily forgiving MS for the draconian DRM there tried to enforce on consumers, but the huge demand for the PS4 has proved that to be false and it warms my heart to see Sony getting the support they deserve after they were for the gamers from day 1.

I honestly can't comprehend how people like you, belking, can defend MS so blindly and viciously when they obviously have no passion for gaming what so ever and purely see it as a way to extract money from consumers.

It really does astound me.
BABY-JEDI  +   370d ago
I think it's great that both consoles are selling well. Us gamers need competition within the console market so that both Sony & MS push their exclusives to be the best gaming experiences possible.
Ps. Let's keep the personal attacks out of the comments thanks.
hazardman  +   370d ago
I gotta say, there sure is alot of articles on whos selling what.

Is there any news on actual games to report. Come on here to read Wall St Journal and Forbes..lol, Smmh......

Anothet great pice of biased pseudo amatorial journalism

Seriusly spawnfirst stop write articles on neogaf users post..coz u becoming embarassing for who take journalism as a serious work .. U can make happy some fanboys or some young console cheerleader but in the long run u losing any little atom of credibility

Ps. Just telling u.... As like on n4g no one in the world is expecting that on neogaf some thread can come out with a single positive things related to xb1 or ms

So if u expecting " ah they saying this on gaf so is true" effect....... I can tell u that thus dosnt work

Ppl start to know how much biased r certain sites/magazines/forums

Nowhere does it say XBone is selling badly, so get over it PS Fanboys, the PS4 is just selling so incredibly well, but that is not saying that XBone isn't doing really well also. Both are more than healthy in sales.....Wii-U is the worry, as I own one, as well as PS4, & I fear the machine may see an early end, as it just isn't attracting the games needed to sell to the masses.

I really hope PS4 keeps smashing sales, as I want a return to the PS1 & PS2 days, as those 2 consoles, (especially PS1) are the 2 best consoles EVER, due to the masses of quantity & quality titles they had.
I really want to see Sony be able to get back some of the 1st party studios that had to be killed off.... Lightbox Interactive, London Studios, Team Soho, San Diago Studios, Cambridge, Zipper Interactive, etc, etc, are just some of my faves, that were responsible for awesome titles like, Warhawk, Medievil, The Mark Of Kri, Primal, The Getaway, Wipeout, Rollcage, Syphon Filter, Jet Moto, Twisted Metal, etc, etc.....I want these days back. Returning awesome IP's & new IP's galore.
ironmonkey  +   370d ago
everyone wants those good ole days back but games in the past also were cheaper to make and now the price to make game are ridiculously high.
