VGchartz PS4 preorder numbers
EDIT: Forgot to put in title, this is for the US numbers ONLY.
Not exactly sure how or where they got their numbers from but if true, WOW! Looks like PS4 is the battlefield crowd while Xbox is COD. I'm very surprised not to see Infamous on that list at all. And before the cries about Titanfall or Destiny being so low, I'm pretty confident in guessing that's only because they are not launch titles and will skyrocket in the future near their launch date.
VGChartz has gathered the pre-order numbers for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The latest data is up to the week ending August 24, 2013. This includes the week of Gamescom, which set a record for biggest gaming trade show in Europe with more than 340,000 visitors. The pre-order numbers are for the US only and give an estimate how each console is doing about three months before release.
Up until the week ending August 24 the PlayStation 4 currently leads in the total number of pre-orders in the US with about 600,000. This is up significantly since E3 where there were only 75,000 pre-orders. The Xbox One is still lagging behind with 350,000 pre-orders. This is also way up since E3 where there were only 45,000 pre-orders.

I know some ppl dont like vgchartz, but 360 fanboys always used it in arguments... So now the shoe is on the other foot, watch them try to discredit this.
Killzone: Shadow Fall - 221,710
Dead Rising 3 - 61,254
Ryse: Son of Rome - 57,962
Forza Motorsport 5 - 56,201
PS4's top exclusive launch game has significantly more pre-orders than 3 of Xbox One's top exclusive launch games COMBINED.
The funny thing is, these pre-order numbers are only from USA. When you consider that PlayStation always sells better than Xbox in Europe and Japan, next-gen is going to be an easy one-sided victory for PS4.
BF4 pre-orders are almost 2x higher on PS4
Watch Dogs pre-orders are almost 2x higher on PS4
COD:Ghosts pre-orders are higher on PS4
Destiny pre-orders are higher on PS4, despite Bungie being Xbox exclusive for the past 10 years.
