What I find amazing is 46,764 Americans were actually able to find a PS4, a pat on the back for you guys and welcome to next gen gaming.

Agreed. I don't know where these people are finding these systems. Im not surprised at all that its down this week. I expect it to be down again next week. Sony wants to make sure everyone who wants one can get it tomorrow in Japan. After that people will be more critical if they can keep stock up.
ITPython  +   402d ago
@amiga - Agreed, although a week or so ago Amazon had PS4 in stock ($399 version) for about 24 hours. They must have gotten a GIGANTIC number of consoles for it to last that long. Wouldn't be surprised if a big chunk of that 46k was from Amazon in that short period of time.

It's just insane when you think about it, XB1 is in stock everywhere for the entire month, PS4 only comes in stock for brief periods of time (hours) and every single unit is gobbled up nearly instantly. Just imagine the PS4 sales if they had unlimited stock, USA sales alone would probably be soaring past 10 million at this point.

What I would be interested to know is the pace at which the PS4's are selling, you know a certain amount per hour. As it is only in stock for a few hours a month at different places. So it might be selling at an average of 2,000 units an hour.

Whereas the XB1, which has been in stock 24/7 all month (730 hours) is only selling at 42 units an hour.

Gamestops in my area have them in stock all the time
lsujester  +   402d ago
Same here. I can go to most Gamestops and find an X1, while the only PS4s in stock are on military bases.

lolCHILLbro  +   402d ago
You act as if everyone reads N4G or is a fanboy, no, its selling better than Xbox One because of price and price alone and any business man will tell you that since they both play the same games, last month Sony had a stock surge and restocked many retailers in the US which contributed to the 2-1 ratio, now stock is out PS4 sales are above Xbox's 25% like it should be due to price

Edit: @replys: Power never stopped the Wii and PS3 was selling horribly untill they matched price and the PS3 even had more issues than the Xbox One has now

amiga-man  +   402d ago
Price is certainly a factor, especially when you consider the less expensive PS4 is also the more powerful option, 3rd party games performing better on the PS4 means there is little reason to buy the xone outside of a few exclusives which may be enough for some but not most.

The PS4 deserves it's lead and not just because of price.

Father__Merrin  +   402d ago
its not only that its a better price point, the console is itself a more powerful console and much more desirable. even if both were same price most people would buy ps4

gamers know this, they also know how Microsoft tried to exploit them with all that drm nonsence

so its wrong to say its entirely because its cheaper, ps3 has always been more expensive than 360 yet over the years more ps3's were sold
KwietStorm  +   402d ago
Yep price alone. Which completely explains PS3 selling at a faster rate than the 360 for it's life. Chillbro.
MysticStrummer  +   402d ago
"any business man will tell you that since they both play the same games"

…and the cheaper option makes those same games look better.
hemmo1986  +   402d ago
Haha cant half tell your a fanboy. Just suck it up the ps4 is selling like hotcakes and is a superior system, so get over it
Hicken  +   402d ago
The PS3 was never selling horribly. It was always selling better than the 360, so if you're saying the PS3 was selling badly- and it wasn't, mind you- then how badly was the 360 doing?

Why are people who repeatedly post false information still allowed to comment?
SITH  +   401d ago
Wasting your time even bother trying to talk to 90% of these kids. No matter how good the ps4 sells it will do virtually nothing to help sony with it's massive debts, and poor revenue. Sony has negative returns on stock. http://www.macroaxis.com/in...

Sony Corporation has Working Capital of -7.099E9. This is 110.95% lower than that of Consumer Goods sector, and 100.4% lower than that of Electronic Equipment industry, The Working Capital for all stocks is 292.37% higher than the company. Just wait in two years. These kiddies will be singing a different tune with regards to the future of the PS4. They have put money on a very capable impressive product ran by a not so impressively ran company on the verge of collapse.

Don't worry the PS4 will be in first place until next generation.

While i don't think the Xbox One will fail, the numbers on this site for Xbox One are without a doubt over tracked. They sold about 200k total in January and i doubt they sold 300k in the first 2 weeks of Feb.

Sadly this is their best market. Xbox One isn't doing well at all outside of US.

Exactly... regardless of whats going on here, they are getting spanked overseas. If it wasn't for the US, people's tune would be a lot different.

PS4 is on pace to easily break 6 million by the end of March.

XB1's current pace will put it around 3.75 mil at the end of March. Even if every person who reserved Titanfall on all three platforms buys an XB1 before the end of March, XB1's total will barely break 4 million. If only the people who reserved the game on XB1 buy the console, it won't break 4 million. That's assuming that no one who has already bought the console reserved the game, which is clearly not the case.

The gap is growing weekly, worldwide and in the only territory MS handily won last gen.
XANDEO  +   402d ago
Won UK aswell the second biggest console market, but things are changing round this gen.
MysticStrummer  +   401d ago
Yeah but the UK was much much closer than the numbers in NA. I'm not surprised to see the UK swing back to Sony, but I am pretty shocked at what's going on in the US right now.

PS3 also outsold XB1 worldwide. 360 approaching Wii territory. People are choosing.

BitbyDeath  +   402d ago
Neither really compete anyway, main one is Vita and 3DS is giving it a huge flogging.
MasterCornholio  +   402d ago
The PS4 competes with other consoles which means the Wii U and the Xbox One not the 3DS.

Vgchartz has under tracked PS4 every week. Expect official February reports to be a massacre.
purp13m0nk3y  +   402d ago
Give it a couple of months and we'll see the gap between the PS4 and Xbox1 widen.

The PS4 sales numbers are still largely limited by availability of stock. Once the JP launch has passed and SONY can focus on market saturation you'll see the PS4 selling in much greater numbers in NA.

I can see the PS4 leading at least 2:1 in NA weekly sales and at last 3:1/4:1 globally.

SONY must be kicking themselves that they don't have the ability to produce enough hardware to meet demand. Imagine the lead the PS4 would have if they did!
GordonKnight  +   401d ago
They must be kicking themselves because they didn't set the price at $500. The system is worth it. IMO
