    Thumbs up Xbox One Sold Out at Gamestop, retailers run short on next-gen

    http://www.joystiq.com/2013/07/14/xb...short-on-next/

    The Xbox One Day One Edition at Gamestop is currently unavailable, after the retailer re-opened pre-orders this weekend. All of the Xbox One Day One bundles – including Battlefield 4, Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, Watch Dogs and Call of Duty: Ghosts – are unavailable for purchase.

    As of July 12, Gamestop still had Xbox One bundles in stock and open to pre-order, but these retailer stockpiles are dwindling fast. Amazon is out of Day One editions, but the Standard edition is still up for pre-order. Xbox One Day One pre-orders will hit Best Buy "soon," while Wal Mart pre-orders are still live. Wal Mart, Amazon and Best Buy both have the PS4 available for pre-order, though the launch-day bundles are MIA.

    We've contacted Gamestop for clarification on Xbox One availability.
    Not surprised how well the Xbox One is doing. It will pick up right where the Xbox 360 left off. Excited about the new gen take up. Glad I got my Day One order in!

    It's much more supply constraint than the competition(which sold out before xbone)

    I'm not shocked that they're sold out though. Launch sales and 2nd shipments are going to sell out regardless. Seeing how it's selling after that(looking at wiiU) will indicate how in demand it is.

    No doubt that Xbox sales will continue to be impressive through the entire next gen like they have been this past gen.

    MS had done a horrible job to convince the casuals why they need to pay $500 for kinect 2.0. MS's kinect message, from the reveal to e3, has been all about non-gaming features. They show it tracking 1:1 and the heartbeat thing but casuals don't give a shit about that. And the hardcore have been speaking in numbers on forums and internet polls as to which console they prefer.

    MS has a long bumpy ride next gen.

    I think people will be measuring the xbone success based off it selling more than the first xbox.

    Yep. And I will say it again. I am not convinced casuals are a mainstay in the console market. I think they got their jollies out of the Wii and Kinect and will move on to things like smart TVs. Casuals don't follow gaming like core gamers. I don't think they know there is a difference between Kinect 1 and 2. If anything, I would not be surprised if casuals added a year or so to the 360s lifespan, but are they going to smack down half a grand for the latest and greatest Kinect? Don't think so.

    Have you been in a cave???

    The brand is now tarnished BIG time, the price is the big factor for me though.

    Why buy a XBone over a PS4 if you don't want kinect??

    I bought a 360 as it was cheaper and picked a ps3 up later on.

    This time ps4 is cheaper and it will show in sales..

    Kid to mom
    " I want a Xbone for Christmas mommy"

    Mom
    "Its to expensive son how about a ps4 instead?

    Kid
    "Mmm okkkkkk"

    I agree fully.

    There's 100million wiis sold and then there's 25million kinects sold. Those wii gamers didn't all go and buy kinect as a Wii replacement. The wii crowd aren't buying WiiU's either. I think MS are in for a rude awakening if they think they are going to grab the wii's 100million market. The wii had a huge buzz amongst the causals and was $299. The xbone has no buzz amongst the casuals and is $499. Like you said, they're aren't going to drop half a grand for that. People are sorely mistaken by looking at the sales of phones and ipads to justify why people will buy xbone.

    Casuals actually did extend the 360's life. The sales had peaked and started to drop pre-kinect and the ps3 was going to overtake the 360 in a year or 2. Then Kinect launched and pushed sales to nearly match the ps3 sales.

    Along with what's mentioned above, here's another reason why I highly disagree with soldier's comment. I see no way how a higher priced xbone is going to sell more than a cheaper priced ps4. The 360 held many advantages in which the xbone doesn't have this time.

    Code:
    YR on market         360                  PS3
    
    
    Year 1               5.0      -      -    3.5      
    
    Year 2               6.6      -      -    9.1      
    
    Year 3               8.7      -      -   10.1      
    
    Year 4              11.2      -      -   13.0     
    
    Year 5              10.3      -      -   14.3

    Not surprised it sold out. All new consoles sell out these days. But I will be surprised if the console sells 70 million units. I am saying this based off the recent polls that have been circulating the web.

    Maybe. But if the Xbox sells 90 million, then I predict the Wii U sells 70 million, and the PS4 sells 150 million lol.

    I picture the PS4 selling about 90 million after 10 years as well. The Wii U, I have no idea. But we are seeing a move towards mobile gaming more and more, which I think will eat into these console sales long term. It's really why we are seeing stuff like Smart Glass and whatever app Sony has...they are trying a last ditch effort to blend the two and make additional sales until they see a drop in console sales.

    Not surprised how well the Xbox One is doing. It will pick up right where the Xbox 360 left off. Excited about the new gen take up. Glad I got my Day One order in!
    not trying to fight ya here soldier, I too think the Xbox will do ok, but didnt ms give limited quantities to retailers to make it seem like they were on par with ps4 when they could say they've "sold out" or "unavailable"?

    I doubt that is the case. Who in the world would purposely stop trying to sell more consoles if they had more to sell? Makes no sense when you are trying to make money.

    The XBone will sell out at launch. Don't see any way it won't. It's the few months after release that I'm curious to see how well it does. Much like the PS3. Pretty sure that sold out at launch but the next few months weren't great. MS is kind of in the same situation now. Higher price tag and a lot of people mad over the mentality they had. Sony and MS did a flip flop.

    This argument again? Mobile games increasing in sales has nothing to do with PS3 and 360 declining in sales. That is purely on the generation lasing 7 years, and the next gen being right around the corner.

    No one is going to pass up on PS4 for the iPad. If they want the iPad it will be for very different reasons than wanting the PS4 or Xbox One.

    Just because it is mobile games, and console games, does not mean they are competing in the same market. No one is going to say. "I'd rather sit on my couch and play this $4 iPad game than Uncharted 4."

    Mobile games have their place, and it isn't going to replace the several hours people spend in their living room playing their console. Its for the 20-30 in a waiting room, being a passenger of a car, the bus, etc.
