DASH and Ryan sit down to discuss PlayStation's Pre-order mishap and how XBOX may be able to entice a new audience from Sony's complete mess with PS5 Pre-Orders. PLUS a Super Mario 3D All-Stars Review.
Sorry Xbox. The buzz and demand is far more present for the PS5. Sure there may be a few that get an Xbox just to have something but for the majority scarcity isn't going to make them want a PS5 any less. Also while there won't be walking into a shop and buying a PS5 over the counter this year we are going to see another big wave of preorders open soon
We'll see tomorrow when pre-orders for xbox series x go live unless they start tonight like with ps5 pre-orders so we'll see if xbox series x pre-orders sell out fast tomorrow morning
The Bethesda news from today might sway a few more particularly any on the fence but all in all the Xbox still won't sell playstation numbers.
I hear you but most people will preorder a Xbox series x just because they can and to resell it on eBay for double the money
I don't even understand this whole narrative. First, Microsoft somehow throws shade at their competition for selling out of their initial allotment. Now we got articles suggesting Xbox will profit from it. The PS5 pre-order was sloppy. That's undeniable. Point is the demand already spoke for itself, and it's sold out. How anyone can turn this into a negative is hilarious. And only a casual gamer may see one platform unavailable, so they decide to get whatever is available instead. Thing is, casual gamers aren't the ones preordering a new console before launch.
These fools need to realize that Playstation is a global brand, slight hiccup is not going to equate a win for xbone x/s. This is wishful thinking at best.
Do people think that if they don't get a pre-order then it's over because Sony is just going to completely stop production of the PS5 or something?
The amount of articles I see from people trying to fault Sony while talking up ms is mind-blowing. Guess it's all going to come out In the wash tomorrow when pre orders start then everyone can be happy and order their system of Choice without throwing epic amounts of hate at the other side
There's no preorder bungle, playstation is just more popular just get over it....The only bungle here is dashgamer who's obviously bungled inside thier backside with fanboyism.... If Sony gave a date for preorder 7 days from now the moment midnight strikes on that day they will be sold out that's not them bungling anything! Thier console demand far outstrips your console of choices demand so do n4g a favour and go play your bongo drums elsewhere.......
I don't really understand the logic here. If the preorders sell out, doesn't that mean Sony is already at capacity in terms of meeting demand at the moment? Clearly, everyone was short noticed, meaning people still rushed to preorder and people are still wanting a PS5. People are just going to be watching preorders hawkishly. Demand will remain high for PS5 for a number of reasons, but the one that stands out for me is the brilliant God of War teaser. People are hoping to play that day one, and all Sony tells you is 2021—you have no idea if that means beginning of the year, or end of the year, or even the fact that it can be delayed into 2022 (which I suspect).... but you don't know, and that's incentive to get on that asap. It's a bloody masterstroke. I don't think this is going to hurt Sony much, if at all. It was a blunder, but demands is still very high.
Profit. Here we go again. Just wait for___________
How so? Both consoles will sell out and there’s going to be people who can’t get either.
Depends on how hard the media wants to spin this. If they keep at it like they did with cross-gaming thing that no one cares about now, then maybe the xbox will put a little dent in Sony's PS5 plans. I don't think there's anything MS can really do without the media's help and some kind of smear campaign. That's how it usually is, anyway.
Never heard of dash gamer but that title and screen tells me all I need to know. 1 It was the retailer's that jumped the gun, not Sony. 2 I'm glad it was alert gamers that got the preorders, myself included. We just saw the PlayStation showcase. I was all over the internet. As soon as I saw this I was preordering. I'm sorry if people didn't get one, but you'll get another chance, only this time you'll be up against bots. Good luck guys.
Nope as the scalpers now know a day when to be ready to order them all up.
I will buy both, but I think PS5 sales will eclipse Xbox. The only way things will change would be if MS announce multiple Japanese studio purchases at TGS and detail unannounced must have games for launch. This is highly unlikely, MS are still under delivering. Sony will dominate easily in my view.
Don't you just love these articles 😂
Selling out your entire stock in literal seconds is a bungle? Lmaoooo The desperation is so obvious.
Hey even if I hadn't been lucky to bag my ps5 preorder. I would of waited until the next wave. Not just think I will take an xbox instead.
