I live in the UK, Went to GAME shop today, they said only 11 people turned up for the midnight Titanfall launch and only 2 people bought it by 3pm the same day (2 hours before closing). Really doubt it will be a blip on the radar.

PS4 disappearing from the shelves is the reason to this.
weak numbers overall in the UK don't people play games over there?

MGSV and inFamous bundles next week will give a blow to those sales.

I don't get why everyone keeps repeating that there's hardly any stock of the PS4.
I'm in the UK in Wales. Its available in each of these stores.


There's also 3 PS4s in my local Cash Generator plus 1 just across the road at Cash Converters.

Its been like that for weeks!

I constantly ask while I am out shopping and they Always have them in stock. I know there's obviously different stock in different areas, but I really am beginning to wonder.

@EasilyTheBest stop being such a liar and saying everywhere has stock.. I live in UK and its extremly hard ot get a console stores do get them in stock but they almost immediately go out of stock..
compared to the xbox one
I had to get literately sit and wait at my computer waiting for Argos to reset there stock count on website and reserve it before they went dry again (all 10 local stores went dry within an hour each store getting like 5 of each bundle/solus). Was a nightmare to get my PS4 and took me 2 weeks of trying to get hold of one.. If it doesn't then you got lucky or bought an overpriced bundle.

As for cash convertors they have stock as they sell for like £410 for a console with no games (preowned!) as they know nobody has stock.
Perfect example of a second hand store in the UK like cash convertors/generator.

This could be directly attributed to TitanFall release, which is probably also why the Xbox1 numbers were as high as they were in the U.S.

Because the actual numbers could actually come in at the tail end of the reporting period!
4Sh0w  +   322d ago
No more likely the price drop on X1 because it was even more than $100 USD expensive in the UK, at about $130 USD, they cut the price to make it closer to the cost difference in the US.
Eonjay  +   322d ago
Agreed. It is ludicrous to insist that a massive price cut wouldn't have an impact on sales. This makes perfect sense. Assuming that people are holding out for Titanfall, this could go up even more next week. I wont be surprised if it ships at least 15k. At this point, I wouldn't expect it to pass PS4 anytime soon, but it may be able to close the gap, or at least keep it from growing for a few weeks.
Bigpappy  +   322d ago
Agree with 4Show and Eonjay. These numbers are most likely due to the price drop, which will still have an impact in the coming weeks, and the Titan Falls impact should push it even higher in the next couple of weekly reports.

Even if there are PS4 shortages, that doesn't remove the fact that X1 sales increased 11% and why keep making excuses for why PS4 sales are dropping when they have had no compelling game releases since launch. Most people buy consoles to play games their are interested in playing I thought.

Infamous is coming soon, it that game has a lot of interest for people who have not yet made the jump, but were waiting for something they really want to play, this might be the game that moves those numbers back up. But yea, its good hyped games that will move console, 1080p on is own is not a reason to buy a console, you need fun games to play or it will just sit there.
ZeroX9876  +   322d ago
I don`t know if it`s because I got a great gaming PC (that I've build myself), but I like getting the most performance for the price.

Seeing the performance of both consoles, I bought a PS4 first at 400$.

The price drop of the X1 really helped it seems, combine this with Titanfall, MS is up to a better start. I didn`t buy an X1 at launch, but if they continue to release great titles, I may consider buying one :)

I gather some people might disagree because you come off as a lemming when you repeat what Sony says about stock when people are verifying stock for themselves. Then you have to consider, where all in the UK has Microsoft actually launched...

Or I could be wrong, and people are simply disagreeing because they don't like you.

I think what Kribwalker is saying is we need to wait until the numbers for the week that Titanfall actually released to see the impact it had. The Titanfall bundle would be the SKU people waited for.

Erm no you could buy then and you got a code for titanfall. You just couldn't download until launch. They were dispatching them earlier to get numbers up however..

stuna1  +   322d ago
People act like there's no such thing as buying a console in preparation of a game! Then when released picking up the game. Same principle.

I brought my PS4 before I brought any games! So how is that a stretch? When I'm positive I'm not the only one.

This is unique to Playstation gamers. It also hurts the companies bottom line. The worst thing you can do as a fan is buy the hardware that Sony takes a loss on and then not buy software to help them out.

Did you look at the rest of Europe sales for PS4 and X1. You were right no PS4 is no longer out selling the X1 5 to 1 . But look at the Europe numbers it's still out selling the x1 almost 3 to 1 in Europe.
The PS4 is still out selling the x1 2 to 1 worldwide PS4 123,702 x1 67,344 . Wow the x1 out sale PS4 U.K by 2000 but get out sold by almost 60000 worldwide and the xboiz are doing back flips,touchdown dance and high fiving each other.

Lucreto  +   322d ago
I love to know where they get their numbers.

I use the Amazon best sellers as a guide to see trends. Here the Titanfall bundle just in the last day or so got out of being stuck in the top 30 to about 18 on release day. The PS4 has been in the top 15 even though it is out of Stock.

The current trend is it is not a system seller and only people who bought the console already are buying it. Zavvi are the same. Titanfall in number one and the console no where to be seen on the listing.
Death  +   322d ago
It's funny how no one questions why PS4's are hard to find until the next fiscal quarter. The system isn't sold out. Sony isn't shipping them.
morganfell  +   321d ago
Look at these Amazon numbers. Funny how Sony is outselling everyone when they are not shipping.

I just looked at the cumulative video games sales on Amazon for the month of March as of March 15 at 8:37PM. This includes both hardware and software sales totals for the first 15 days. The PS4 is at number 1. The closest X1 is the Titanfall bundle at number 11. There are no other X1s in the top 20. Of the top 10 slots, 7 of those are Sony products. So for those people that were thinking the few days before launch would show a massive surge of X1 purchases that would over whelm the PS4...well...it didn't happen at Amazon.

And if you go look at Gamestop, the PS4 still owns the top two slots and the Titanfall bundle has dropped to 28.

4 Xbox One titles in the Top 20. Buying games is still very much in the DNA of Xbox owners it seems. All this and TitanFall just dropped yesterday in the UK?

Edit: @below, note how I didn't even mention any other platform. But any positivity towards Xbox has to be met with hostility in one form or another.

Let me throw you a bone and mention that even though the WiiU is selling horribly, the attach rate is very encouraging. At 5.5 games sold games sold per console, it has the highest attach rate.
(Although this can be offset by the fact that it has been out much longer, in which case the Xbox' One's 3.1 games per console is the more impressive attach rate of the current gen) consoles.

Ps4 has no decent games compared to xb1 this is why xb1 sells more

The only reason ps5 sells more worldwide is because it's cheaper and available in more countries
Mr_Writer85  +   322d ago
"The only reason ps5 sells more worldwide is because it's cheaper and available in more countries"

1) What about the PS4?

2) The X1 and PS4 have pretty much the same games, bar exclusives.

3) The WiiU also has "better games" is cheaper and in more countries yet the PS4, having less games, more expensive and in less countries is out selling it...

4) Why isn't X1 in the same amount of countries? I mean if those countries had a huge demand there MS would be stupid not to release there. Many would argue the 360 being cheaper and in more countries was the only reason it got its lead over the PS3.

The same might happen to X1 *sniggers* yeah maybe Sony will do MS and stop making new games and just release GT, Uncharted and....

Oh I'm sorry I can't do it.

I feel sorry for those who bought an X1

Inferior console

Inferior console is subjective... While hardware specks might be lacking in comparison to the ps4.. the xbox one being a media hub has guaranteed it getting more use than my ps4 does currently. Which also I'm paying more because I'm getting more out the box. So why feel sorry for people who are finding value in their purchase and enjoying it? At your #2 point.. Umm, what? That's logic that applies throughout every console cycle. Ha
Mr_Writer85  +   322d ago

How can proven facts that mulitiplatform games on the cheaper games console preform better then one that's more expensive be subjective?

The quality of exclusives is subjective.

The other functions of the console is subjective.

The performance is not as there are hard facts showing this.

Also my 2nd point is like the whole post.

Tounge firmly in cheek.
Gozer  +   321d ago
Don't feel sorry for me, I bought 2 X1s and both are worth it. My X1 can control my living room entertainment. As an all in one device, the X1 is incredibly easy to use. The ps4 has very little to compete with the X1 at controlling the living room. The X1 also plays games. The X1 has much better connectivity, functionality, dedicated servers, better Game DVR, better video editing tools, Skype, and a better OS. The ps4 just plays games. The X1 is in no way an inferior console.
Mr_Writer85  +   321d ago
I think you missed the part where I say it's all "tongue firmly in cheek".

I couldn't care what you have, but if you feel the need to justify yourself to someone you don't know on the Internet maybe deep down.....

But then again if you are arguing that the X1 plays games better then the PS4 you may want to check out digital foundry.

All those extra bells and whistles are nice, but this isn't a media centre site.

It's a gaming one, and the fact is the X1 charges you more to play inferior games compared to its cheaper competition.

That is a fact.

For those who follow stocks on forums, this is called restocking. Amazon was restocked three times this week and sold out three times. I know because I watched it happen. The PS4 has been restocked again which is what you are seeing here. Do you think that Sony only restock on a Monday and that's it for the week? And just how far down that list did you scroll?

You just keep on using this weeks restock for Infamous: Second Son as proof that last week there was PS4 stock everywhere. I guess you'd have to conclude from your findings that not only is the PS4 outselling the X1 by 2.5 million but Sony can produce a hell of a lot more consoles than MS too. Well done.

Of course the XB1 will win some US/UK weeks. The fact it is getting beaten or parity is a surprise. It was expected to own it's 2 strongest markets. Anyway, GAMERS (you claim to be), we need both to do well for a healthy gaming market economically and artistically. We need to get over these petty squabbles and grow gaming, showing maturity and welcoming newcomers. Talk about games with joy, show your enthusiasm.
