    Xbox One may have 2-3x more launch units than the PlayStation 4 this holiday.

    Xbox One may have 2-3x more launch units than the PlayStation 4 this holiday, according to Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian.

    In a note to investors today, he said this superior launch allocation would give Microsoft an initial advantage, but noted supply for both next-generation systems will likely be "constrained," leading to potential shortages. His estimations are based on supply chain checks.

    Sebastian also said the tides are turning for Microsoft, following its dramatic policy reversal last month that saw the company roll back various controversial features.
    "Despite losing the headline battle at E3, we believe that Xbox One has regained some momentum in recent weeks, in part due to modifications in policies related to online connectivity and used games," Sebastian said.

    Anyone find that hard to believe, considering Sony is a hardware company and MS is not?

    Neither of them are mass producing the consoles themselves.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    that is true but I still don't believe ms will have that many more consoles at launch than sony, if any. Ive always said that ms will come back from the E3 debacle and that people saying the "war" was over were wrong. I just don't see them having THAT much of an advantage, so that guys statement isn't believable to me. Just my opinion though

    Sony isn't mass producing them in their own Sony factory in Japan, no. They are mass producing them through a third party. However, Sony is more efficient at producing hardware than most companies out there. The efficiency of design leads to more reliable, easier to assemble, quicker to assemble. I personally believe Sony is capable of producing 2-3 times more units than Microsoft could.

    They will probably be stacked right next to the PS4's in those warehouses waiting for someone to buy them as well.

    This one is rather hard to swallow. I don't believe it. Sure, could be more but 2-3x more? No.

    I don't know if I believe this one. 2-3X more is kinda pushing it.

    yessir it should. If they haven't began already then their collecting the items needed to mass produce and testing the manufacturing production line. But like you said, it will begin soon.

    So with that said.... where is the xbox stance on the fcc? If they haven't passed this production then I don't see this post viable lol. I think both will be limited like this generation. It took me feb of 07 to get a dam ps3 lol

    I havent seen any article regarding the XBone passing FCC so apparently they're a bit behind, or I've missed it. Might have something to do with the rumors on ms changing a couple things inside the box late in the game. FEB 07?? Damn man that had to suck. BTW, u do know your sigpic isn't showing right

    if rumours are true and pre-orders are selling out, not many will be there.

    Find this hard to believe. Especially 2 or 3 times more. Then theres the matter of PS4 already passing through FCC.

    That is true. With them already exceeding the excessively popular debut of the Xbox 360, I imagine they will be short handed yet again. The Xbox 360 was in short supply until March after the debut.

    The Xbone looks simpler of the 2 consoles to mass produce.

    I doubt it, given that SONY ramped up orders and estimates were that worlwide SONY would have 10Million units available for Q4 2013.
    SONY's chip is easier to make/validate.
    More well tested APU GCN units and none of that ESRAM or new fangled Data Move Engines....
    Just a MASSIVE BANDWIDTH to support, but that usually doesn't cause yield issues once the process is verified.

    Dunno, talk is getting cheap, give me my games.

    BTW, does anyone know if DS4 still has the 3D tilt sensors and accellerometer?
