    M$ still has xbones in stock on their site. Did they make lots more of them than sony made ps4s or did they not sell as many?

    One thing is for sure I bet the ppl who paid over 700 on eBay last night are kicking themselves. Or trying to figure out how to get their monies back. Or both.

    I went to the GameStop close by to pick up some PlayStation Cards and I was surprised at the number of Xboxes that were still there.
    I didn't really care since I had to get home to activate these babies.

    If you mean the bundle that is on the microsoft store, that wasnt there yesterday, they started that today(and its sold out). Also, microsoft said every microsoft store will have extra xbox's that they will sell in store on first come first serve basis.

    No there was just the standard console on ms store for 499 no bundle. Online free shipping. They were in stock before I went to bed last night and were in stock until this afternoon.

    Seems sold out now tho... But they did not seem to go as fast as ps4. Either that or ms made more of them

    Xbone sold over a million consoles in the first 24 hours. They outsold PS4. They started development first and release their system second with better launch titles. Plus it's family friendly with Kinect games. That's why pre-orders don't mean anything.

    Can we really say it outsold PS4? PS4 sold 1 million in NA alone and next week it's launching in one of it's biggest territories. Xbox sold 1 million accross 13 countries.

    I think we should wait for the NDP to roll in but you do bring up a good point.

    Technically, Microsoft's launch began earlier with New Zealand, so the time comparison isn't necessarily accurate.

    With the PS4 launching in Europe next week, it'll be interesting to see what the numbers over there are, but still, it seems like both of these systems are out the gate at a good pace. Despite the naysaying, it looks like people really were waiting for next gen.

    On the other hand, the Wii U's situation isn't looking any better...

    why do people want an xbone or ps4 at this time? Both have no gaems and the graphics arent that much better compared to ps3/360. I would say the wii u is more compelling at this time with its present and future exclusive nintendo titles.

    PS4's first year is already starting to look fantastic, at least for me. inFamous, The Order, Uncharted, Deep Down, Yakuza, and much more.

    Play gaems. Plus people like having shiny shit. People bought the 3DS at launch and the gaem line up was far worse than the PS4 or Xbones.
