PS4 Continues To Outsell Xbox One Via Retailers, eBay

Small bits of small data from various sources have rolled in that indicates that the Xbox One is falling behind the PS4 in sales like Americans trail just about every other important (and unimportant) country when it comes to education.

Techfaster spotted news from both Ars Technica and BGR, where it's noted that the PS4 is still a hard item to find in stock the world around. This isn't particularly new news, but it's further reiterated with a quick glance over on the Now In Stock page for both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.

A snapshot of the Now In Stock page for both Sony and Microsoft's newest generation consoles reveals that the PlayStation 4 is, indeed, selling out and continually sold out, just as Sony had mentioned previously about supply being in such high demand that it would be sold out through Christmas. Check it out below.

It's Sad when you consider Sony is having all this success with out having to push out all these Big Budget Ads Microsoft's keep kicking out like McDonald's and Xbox One Commercial's during NFL Football games. Stating things like "Xbox is the official Console of the NFL".

re2_apocalypse1610d ago

Yea, M$ is gonna do crap this generation. The PS4 is just the superior system this time around, and will continue to have the best 1st party games and Support

omg the gif at the bottom of the page in the actual article is epic

Are you kidding me ? this how articles are written nowadays no hard numbers to prove their claim ,just a screenshot that shows that the PS4 is sold out everywhere .Didn't Sony admit that they were having problems meeting demands because of how long it takes to built a PS4 ? Isn't fact that Microsoft flooded the US market in order to make sure they win their territory .The Xbox One was available threw out the holiday season while Sony has been struggling to make PS4's available in a timely fashion . I don't really give a damn whose leading because at the end of the day it won't matter to me but at least do your damn job right . Post some official numbers and stop guessing.

same as the eBay numbers the one that is hard to find will sell more on eBay .why would you pay a $1000 for an XBOX ONE when MS made sure there was plenty in stock ?

mikeslemonade1610d ago

I never heard of those.. Why don't you back up the facts that the PS4 is harder to make and X1 flooded the market?? Sure isn't consistent given the sales.

Official Console of the NFL would mean more if Madden made a leap forward in their game.

nukeitall1610d ago

MS just has more consoles diverted to fewer regions so stock will be better. Sony spread themselves very thin with almost 3 times the regions released, so stock will be hard to come by.

MS and Sony's supply chain will be very similar. It wouldn't surprise me if MS sold more consoles in the US and potentially in the UK, due to stock availability, but that Sony sold more overall.

That said, I think the numbers for both will be very close and insignificant in 2-3 years time.

MS is trying wayyy too hard. The reason they won in the US last gen was because it had a year head start and it was cheaper than PS3.

AceBlazer131610d ago

Not to mention comedy central being littered with xbone commercials every other minute.Nothing beats word of mouth.

kidhero991610d ago

C'mon people don't make MS sell off the xbox division, buy some stuff

PS4 is really has the trust of more gamers than Xbox


ifistbrowni1610d ago (Edited 1610d ago )

I find it absolutely unfathomable that no one has written an article complaining about psn being down for the past 2 days.

Every little negative thing about xbox gets published on this site and gets top news and top comments of the day. Yet, when ps4 shits the bed, "no news here." I'm not trolling, im just pissed i cant hit up some multiplayer. Thought, ill check N4G to see whatsup. To my surprise, a 2 day outage is not news-worthy. This site really has turned rabid.

I know im going to get disagreed HARD on this post! Probably going to get tagged as a troll. Meanwhile, my comment history has been all "pro-sony"

Lord Anubis1610d ago


sorry to tell you but investors don't like xbox and they want to sell it. They are not willing to bleed money for gamers as they have several times with the original xbox and xbox 360.

cyhm31121610d ago

you are stupid, richer companies doesn't mean better products.

MasterCornholio1610d ago

You make it seem like it's a David vs Goliath scenario.

Microsoft has so much money but they did a poor job (IMO) with the Xbox One in terms of hardware specifications.

Boody-Bandit1610d ago (Edited 1610d ago )


There have been a couple articles discussing the "intermittent" problems PSN has been having the past couple days. They are not shut down.

I was having some issues the past couple days seeing my friends list but I gamed online for 10 hours, surfed the net on the browser for a couple hours and accessed the store a few times the past couple days. FAR from shut down. It's more of a friends list and trophy thing. At least it is on my end.

I'm on PSN right now with no issues.
I can see my friends list and sync my trophies.

It's nothing like what happened a few years ago with XBL when it went completely down for 11 days during the Christams break.

Those "official console of the NFL" ads make me smh and chuckle.

All they've done is spark "I want a PS4" conversations between me, my brothers, and my nephews.

I continue to laugh at Major Nelson's "Fastest selling" comment.

Tigan1610d ago (Edited 1610d ago )

MS is doing fine. Don't worry fellas. They have been out for how long now? Not even 6 months and sony fans claim victory. So desperate from the ass kicking it got last gen. this gen the x1 was just as much as the ps3 was at launch last gen but sold much much better. Sold out actually and its still more expensive. Just imagine a price drop.

LGM3131610d ago

You have no idea what you are talking about, but keep dreaming anyway

Hicken1610d ago

First, when did the PS3 get an ass kicking from the 360? Before it was released? Cuz that's the only time the PS3 sold less systems.

Second, the XB1 is the same price but also cheaper than the PS3 was, as the latter launched with TWO SKUs. And though it may be outselling the PS3(which isn't all that impressive, since it was only second fastest last gen; the Wii was first), it's not outselling the PS4, which is selling much better than the 360.

Third, it's not sold out- well, it might be by now, given Christmas just went by. But it wasn't sold out when Microsoft said it was, nor has it been sold out at many, MANY outlets for the majority of this holiday season. And still, with all that stock on shelves, it's being outsold by the PS4, whose manufacturer simply can't keep up with the overwhelming demand.

Fourth, there isn't a price drop coming any time soon, realistically. And IF there was one, what makes you think Sony couldn't also drop the price to keep things "equal" and maintain their own momentum? Hell, what makes you think Microsoft can afford to cut the price within the next few months and not wind up taking a massive loss on hardware which wouldn't be guaranteed to be made up on software? And, again, what makes you think Sony- who may well be making a profit per console, or close to it- couldn't afford to drop the price as well and maintain their advantage?

Nobody's claiming victory. But there's obviously a lead, a sales advantage that people are declaring. There's a difference, and it'd be nice if you Xbox guys figured that out sooner rather than later.

MysticStrummer1610d ago

"So desperate from the ass kicking it got last gen."

360 started in first and ended in third. That's an ass kicking.

FrigidDARKNESS1610d ago (Edited 1610d ago )

Dont see how ps4 can be out selling the x1 because of limited inventory. Sony"s jack Tretton has already admitted that their mass shortages of ps4. Next months NPD will tell the truth.

Majin-vegeta1610d ago

Lol Someone said the same thing for Black Friday.Look who came out on top in NPD.

Bathyj1610d ago

I don't know why people have this mindset that because ps4 is sold out everywhere and Xbone is available everywhere that Microsoft is supplying more stock. Did I read it wrong or did ps4 sell about 3 times more on Amazon?

jessupj1610d ago

It would be very interesting to know if Frigid actually believes what he just typed, or if he's just desperately defending MS for some bazaar reason?

DoesUs1610d ago

Prepare to be shocked by Dec NPD numbers 8)

LeCreuset1610d ago

"I don't see how this product that is flying off the shelves is outselling the competition."

That's basically what you just said.

Clarence1609d ago

I see the success of the PS4 is hard for you to deal with. It will get easier with time.

The fact of the matter is that the Xbone is not selling as fast as the PS4. Most likely the people are buying the Xbones that have been sitting on the shelves, while the PS4 are selling out as soon as they become available.

No matter how you slice it the PS4 is outselling the Xbone. Its the peoples choice. If you can't deal with that, its going to be a long gen for you.
