How the PlayStation 4 vs Xbox One pre-orders look at Best Buy

The pre-order stand at Best Buy is all out of PS4 pre-order cards, while there are plenty of Xbox One cards left.

Or...they easily remove all the PS4 cards and took the picture. No way of knowing the truth.

Because there's no way the PS4 can be the more sought after machine with better hardware, cheaper price and no camera spying, directly on the heels of game ruining DRM restrictions. That would be impossible.

I swear down people who believe kinect will spy on there are the single most stupid people on the internet.

Microsoft don't give a damn, 99% of footage would be people sat in front of the screen playing a game.

Why would they spend millions of dollars to do this?

Muerte24941944d ago

Then why require it when half of your launch titles don't even use it?

go read about the NSA and spying and you'll understand if they can tap into anyones cell phone email and text messages with no legal repercussion then they can def tap into the xbox one

Actually I walked into my best buy and it looked exactly like that...and that was 2 weeks ago

Akuma2K1944d ago

I went to Best Buy today with my girlfriend and the PS4's were all sold out just like that picture.

PigPen1944d ago

Ha Ha Ha Ha, that's very possible. Picture most have been taken by a employee or they will try to accuse him of stealing the camera.

we all know that the PS4 will demolish the X1 this holiday season. Can't wait!

SixZeroFour1944d ago

i cant wait either...the big fat check i get from sony for demolishing microsoft is gunna be sweet /s

unless you work for either company, why would there be any need for celebration for one "demolishing" the other? you do realize, that if any one of those competitors disappear that it would be bad for the industry right?

kingrev1944d ago

If they get demolish then hopefully they will get their heads off their assess and finally do something, meaning better competition, is just like ps3 vs xbox 360 back at the beginning, ps3 was extremely cocky and they got what they deserved but then look where they are now.

sic_chops1944d ago

Actually he is right. Competition is needed. Just imagine if M$ had no competition. Can't wait to get my hands on that Dualshock 4.

mirumu1944d ago

Competition is great, but for it to work the companies all have to release competitive products. Previously the Xbox One wasn't competitive. Things have changed a bit now after their backtracking, but it seems significant damage to their brand has remained.

That said, if the console market is big enough to sustain 2-3 players then either Microsoft will continue on, or someone else will step in. I wouldn't be surprised to see Samsung have a go if they saw an opening. In that sense I think the industry will be fine irrespective of what happens to Microsoft.

I can't wait because of the incredible lulz.

I have just absolutely the word schadenfreude; I love to watch video game train wrecks.

It's why /r/SimCity was my go-to subreddit for months without ever owning SimCity 5.

I think competition is bad. Remember when the PS2 was king? How many new, creative, and just look at how many more games came out during the PS2's lifespan? It had several thousand games, and is considered the best console of all time! Competition is bad because it divides the gamers, the developers, publishers, and waters down innovation as well as limits games.

If PS4 were the only next gen console, think of how many more games there would be and all the maps and content available optimized for one machine. We'd all save money too, and end spending that money on the PSN, so its a win win.

Besides, with M$ out of the way, Nintendo would get more support because developers would need to recooperate some M$ newly freed customers. Sony for top notch, technologically advance next games, Nintendo, would be the other machine, and I think they would be forced to make next gen console every generation that could keep up with Sony's tech. This would be a good thing because Sony and Nintendo wouldn't really compete with each other like Sony and M$ do.

I think Sony and Nintendo compliment each other. Grown up, realistic games on the PS4, and unique kiddie, family games on the Nintendo systems.

I know I would like to play a Mario game with nice up to date console graphics. In other words M$ isn't necessary. They are expensive, have limited and repetitive software, and stricter anti consumer policies than Sony and Nintendo.

True_Samurai1944d ago

Lol they probably just moved all the cards off that rack. One store doesn't justify the rest

dale11944d ago

i don,t know about the US but to be fair theres loads of ps4 consoles for order day one from game in the uk. There again so is there for x1

MysticStrummer1944d ago

Yeah it's hard to say how accurate this is or what it means even if it is accurate.

PS4 appears to be dominating but it will be awhile before we know for sure.
