    Probably MS doesn't produce so many units, as they know they are losing the competition vs PS4 anyway... so these sold-out news is at last one way to make good news, good publicity....

    They are beating the hot selling 360 in those orders, so it sounds like they have better inventory than last time. If true, it's gonna sell gangbusters.

    It'll mean something when we actually see numbers.

    It all comes down to the actual numbers. Until we know how many were actually available for preorder it is impossible to say for certain how good or bad MS sales are.

    9 years and counting!

    Yep. Completely agree. We have no idea how many units are likely going to ship for either console.

    It's worth keeping in mind that despite the common internet opinion concerning the consoles right now, there's still millions and millions of gamers out there that are entirely out of the information loop that want this console. MS reversing their DRM decisions has pulled back some gamers here too.

    Oh I know this thing is going to sell out. But the number of consoles shipped does play a large part in it. Lets say MS ships 10 million Sony ships 8 all sells out, or vice versa. There is a clear cut who had the better launch. Not simply due to demand but sales. But doesn't really matter this thing is going to fly off the shelves at launch regardless of how many units they ship. That reversal was crucial for MS because this situation might not have happened until later down the road.

    I know. I'm just pointing out that I don't think the system will launch, fly 35 feet, and crash into the ground with an explosion like some people seem to think. I think MS will have a fair enough launch, but the PS4 will be a lap ahead.

    Exactly..... but that won't stop the haters from always looking at the glass half full in some way. Nice to hear this.

    I could be the devil's advocate here and say..... considering the Xbox One has 3x the console fanbase to draw from then the Xbox 360 had..... having more pre-orders than the Xbox 360 had isn't exactly shocking. Right?

    Not going to happen for sure. If anything they might stay off a little rocky like the PS3. No chance in hell this thing is going to flop. MS has a strong fan base. No way they are all going to drop them because of some stuff they did. Many may be unhappy but in the end they will buy one.

    Ms will cut production to cause shortages and make hype for the xbone.
    I bet most of the people who got these consoles will resell them on eBay.

    It'll be interesting to see these figures. I wonder if they had a majority of their units coming to the states than the other countries(It would make sense to do this due to it being their strongest market;competition launching in same month).

    a costly console trending above historic 360 levels. i don't think there is a bad side to that for MS.

    i've said it before, but worth repeating.

    with Xbox ONE on the dash of every connected 360 there will be far more users than ever before, that know about the new console. should safely see it outperform the cheaper (on release) 360.
