    PS4 game preorders outpacing Xbox One

    No surprise there.

    PlayStation 4 Game Pre-Orders Outpacing Xbox OneJune 14, 2013




    The early next generation console adopters are speaking with their wallets to the tune of PlayStation 4 over Xbox One if individual game pre-orders are taken into account.
    At online retailer Amazon.com, there are four PS4 games on the top 20 video game bestsellers list before the first Xbox One game appears. Those games include Watch Dogs with 60 minutes of exclusive gameplay for PS4 in position 9, Sony's own Killzone: Shadow Fall at position 12, Bungie's Destiny in position 15, and EA's Battlefied 4 in position 16.


    Down in position 18 is where the first Xbox One game appears and that game is, quite obviously, Forza Motorsport 5 Day One Edition. The other Microsoft first-party game with a Day One Edition, Ryse: Son of Rome is hanging out in position 20.


    Right now all of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launch games are priced at $59.99. This pricing for physical discs could change between now and the anticipated November/December time frame that these games are expected to arrive in stores. There also exists the potential that Microsoft and/or Sony could offer digital download versions at a slightly lower price.


    No matter which way you slice it, the PlayStation 4 games are outpacing the Xbox One games at Amazon.com. This is coming from an outlet with a broader and more mainstream audience than would pre-order their games from somewhere like GameStop. As in any good conflict, the winner isn't who strikes first and declares victory in the first battle. There's many more years of war left to fight in this next console generation.

    Kinda reminded me of this for some reason:
    Who would have thought building a solid product that serves your customer's needs would beat out money, marketing, hype, and greed.

    The, $399.99 price tag made a lot of people happy. That's why I pre-ordered 2 of them.

    Can't remember who it was, I think it may been Tretton or Shu who said it during an E3 interview so far, but the idea of producing a console priced around the $400 mark whilst being powerful is something they've been planning and working towards since '08. Crazy.

    As I said in another thread, SCE come across laser focued with the PS4 and it really shows. Happy days for gamers.

    I think I'm gonna go with BF4, Fifa14, DriveClub and maybe Killzone. Should keep me busy until the holy grail of inFAMOUS: Second Son comes out early Q1 2014

    Knack looks a lot of fun and those kinds of games have been missed this gen, when compared to last, but I need to see more

    this part of the post wasn't needed. it was a troll comment. no one is splitting hairs, don't make an issue out of nothing - Cuguy

    There are Launch pre-orders (what XBone is calling Day One), which have allocation limits, and there are Standard pre-orders which don't really have any allocation limit except as supply line limited and can also mean your order may not be filled for months after launch.

    This Amazon status today:
    http://www.amazon.com/best-sellers-v...s/ref=sv_vg_11

    is not a surprise but still kind of astounding. Yes, XBone is second but these are *STILL* Day One units. The PS4 sold out of Launch units two days ago. The astounding thing is PS4 Standard units are still outselling the XBone launch units. Either the allocation number for XBone launch units is very high or they are selling only some slightly larger number than the PS4 Launch units, since that number is now fixed. Then, looking down the page, it's kind of astounding it's mostly filled with PS4 game titles. This is exceeding the actual game sales now, except for LOU. Still interpretive but seems kind of obvious to me.

    Lol. I'm sure that was something an employ did. Very seriously doubt best buy would put up a sign discouraging you from buying a product.
