    That's not a lot of total votes anyway to get a good enough picture, in my opinion.

    I agree. Too bad the poll was closed early.

    Put a few zeros behind both sides still wouldn't change the story.

    What? If you put an equal amount of zeros on both sides, the proportion would be the same.

    And you cannot assume that such a proportion would hold up as you reach into more votes. That's a 95% favor in regards to Sony. You won't see that kind of split in sales. No way.

    That wouldn't surprise me.

    Also, your avatar/username combo is amazing.

    Agreed, but there's not a single poll I've seen on any place that the PS4 hasn't won against Xbox One, they're just polls but there's plenty of them enough to get a good picture, that and the sales on the pre-orders.

    I think it was in Microsoft's best interest that the poll was closed early. hehe

    the story is that ps4 is dominating against the x1 on the Internet. yes I won't assume the actual sales split would be that dramatic, but consumer sentiment that is consistent across many sites on the Internet cannot be ignored.

    Not to mention there is word from people preordering at most gamestop saying that each store is getting 8-10 XBones and close to 30 PS4. Don't know how true that is. Mostly just hear say but there are quite a few people saying it. No way to verify that though. If that is the case, they will be well under sales. Even if they sell out day one which is likely.

    The store I got my preorder from had about 8-10 Xbones available and 18-20 PS4s (both overall numbers, I actually got the last PS4 available). I got a preorder today because Sony doubled the amount available to the store I go ti later this week.

    After talking to the Gamestop people for a little bit, it seems that their availability was doubled at some point this week. It may be due to the fact they are launching in the UK and US now.

    Considering the ps4 is not even built yet it's all a guess. Lots of stores took too many pre orders for the ps3 in 2006 and people in line missed out.

    I didn't actually ask on my local store, but I also believe what they told you is true. I mean pretty much every single site has done polls about it and the PS4 is getting them all.
