    Well, to me it looks like they've just spread 8 single pre-order cards across the racks.

    There's more than eight cards there. You can tell by looking at a few of them since they are angled. Bottom left, third row left, and 2nd row right have more than one card there.

    It's still too early to tell everything by this one store. My three local gamestops are out of xbox one preorders. They had almost 4 times as many PS4 orders so they are still taking a couple more of those.

    Certainly tells a story. However, someone could easily take all the PS4 pre-order cards away and then take a picture.

    True. Perhaps one of the PSU members (unbiased) should pay a visit to BB and verify if this story is the truth.

    That's what I thought. Not to say it didn't happen but actual facts are more believeable

    Even if that picture represents actual facts, we would need Best Buy to release official figures on how they're doing against each other on preorders, I know PS4 is definitely outselling the X1 but this picture does not provide any proof at all.

    So analysts expect the PS4 to outsell the Xbox One even though the PS4 lacked exclusives at E3? The PS4 must have momentum from the later success of the PS3.

    I can think of 3 exclusives just off the top of my head. PS4 momentum has to do with the 100 buck difference, and before Microsoft's announcement of the policy reversal

    Yes, it does have 3 exclusives, but can you name more? How does the amount of PS4 exclusives compare to the number of Xbox One exclusives shown at E3?

Shu Yoshida has, with his studios only already 30 games in development. 20 of those will ship in the first year of the console's life and 12 of them are new IP's. And that's his studios only. I hope Microsoft can surprise us.

    Wow, let me correct myself. Sony just doesn't have a lot of exclusives that interest me, that blow me away.


    That's coming at Gamescon.

    We cannoy deny the momentum that the PS4 has over the Xbone, come launch day It'll be PS4 madness you just watch.

    PS4 has little to no competition.

    Definitely. Ps4 madness is coming. Out of my friends I was the only one with the ps3 this Gen, everyone else had the 360.

    Now all my buddies already have preorders for it and not the xbone.

    I think it's too soon to say what's going to happen, but for those saying the US loves their Xbox, some people are not dumb, and have realized they're best off going with PS4. As a matter of fact most of my friends were X360 users, I was actually the only one left out my friend gaming circle with my PS3 and now I get to welcome them to my gaming circle lol.
