    Xbox One May Outship PS4 At Launch

    Xbox One May Outship PS4 At Launch
    Adam Barnes

    Supply chain checks could suggest that the Xbox One has the lead over PS4 in terms of production.

    Published on Jul 24, 2013
    While the PS4 - for the most part - seems to be winning over the hearts of the gamers, the Xbox One could have a unit advantage when the console launches later this year.
    Speaking to GamesIndustry, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian discussed who he thinks could - ultimately - claim the most sales between the PS4 and the Xbox One by the end of the year.
    "Despite losing the headline battle at E3," said Sebastian, "Microsoft's Xbox One appears to be regaining some momentum, in part due to the used and online policy tweaks.
    "Importantly, our supply chain checks suggest Microsoft may have the benefit of a 2-3x unit advantage at launch compared to Sony's PS4."
    This doesn't mean the numbers of pre-orders but, instead, the numbers of consoles actually being produced.
    If the PS4 does in fact sell out, then the only alternative in the run up to Christmas will be the Xbox One - and that's a huge advantage to Microsoft.
    Sebastian also suggested that the $100/80 gap between the PS4 and the Xbox One ultimately won't have an effect on the core audience since early adopters aren't concerned about paying a premium for their console of choice.
    Sebastian added that Microsoft is "working with channel partners to lessen the gap," suggesting we could see subsidies on the price when the Xbox One is released.


    Yet another crock of $#@! for Adam Barnes on NowGamer http://www.nowgamer.com/news/2016555...at_launch.html

    This guy needs to learn a bit about how to use common sense.

    Not impossible. They could be making a few million machines for launch. No one said it would sell more than the PS4.

    Shipped =/= Sold

    They're not the only ones talking about it, I read something similar over at IGN too. And they might be correct, they might not, either way having more units doesn't guarantee success.

    Let's say PS4 has 1 million unit preordered and they will only be able to fulfill that number by launch, delaying stock for a few weeks maybe a month; Xbox One has 1 million units preordered and they will be able to fulfill and still have more units to stock retailers shelves after launch day, that doesn't mean people are going to buy Xbox One just because they can't wait a couple more weeks.

    I haven't seen anything coming close to this on IGN.com and everything I have seen on this has come out of this Analyst's comment from a day ago.

    That said, the pre-order numbers aren't solely what they build to. They build to make sure they meet market demands. If Sony built 1M for Launch day but expected 2M more for the holiday season (3M total) which is very feasible, they'd make sure they have 1M shipped out and available to the retailers by the launch data, they'd have more in reserves built to continue shipping in a more continuous distribution, and they'd be build more units to meet demands during this period of time.

    Sony knows this, they've done it multiple times before. This is the only report I've seen suggesting they may have a shortage of components. It's not like they have a ton of customer components on the board. It's primarily the APU.

    Reports were that Sony started to stockpile components before E3. They had PS4's at E3 (probably Beta's) they've gotten FCC approval (MS still hasn't done this.) They upped their Launch date commitment volume.

    Everything they've done would indicated that they're actually very strong and probably better able to deliver the demand (even though it's higher for launch day) than MS is. Except this one Tech Analyst.

    Let's see, the PS4 has now completed FCC testing and passed. The XBone is a no-show at this point, at a very late point where they don't need to hide the hardware anymore, that is, if there is hardware. If MS doesn't show up at Gamescom with dozens of production-ready demo booths, then they aren't outshipping Justin Beibers baggy pants, which that OP is the equivalent.

    Only the normal people will default to whatever is on the shelf. (and sadly that is the bulk of the populace)

    However The PS4 did just pass through the FCC. With all the changes MS are making, unless the XBone shows up there as well in the next few weeks there is no way.

    Edit: lol. Bligmerk mentioned it already.

    So like the Surface, Microsoft builds more than the demand expecting Apple/PS4 sales and then has to dump the stock for next to nothing.

    This could happen but highly unlikely. Not at the point Sony is at right now. Not to mention the amount if reported preorders that stores were allowed. Doubt they would have allowed those flood gates to be open if they weren't confident they could meet the demand.
