    Signs that games pre-orders for PS4 outpacing Xbox one 4:1 in the US

    Numbers reported by vgchartz.com suggest that current pre-orders for PS4 games are four times higher that of Xbox One in the United States.

    You're absolutely right. So I would take their numbers with a boat-load of salt.

    Couldn't resist the chance of posting a news piece with "4:1" in the title though

    I'm more impressed with the fact that a JRPG managed to crack the top 5.

    I guess the drought this gen has made more people miss the genre after all this time. *shrug*

    I don't know about VGChartz but i'd be surprised if the PS4 isn't far more popular in the US than the PS3 was.

    From what I've heard they just guess at their numbers. At one time they were actually banned here as a source.

    VGChartz, My Hero While everyone gives them a lot of $#@!, and I wouldn't quote their numbers as fact, their numbers actually tend to be not to far from the truth.

    Not to be the friendly neighborhood Grammar Nazi, but this is right up there with "could care less." It's "take with a grain of salt." A boatload of salt would imply we could take them seriously. I mean ... you're free to say it that way ... just realize that somewhere in the world ... every time you say it that way ... a baby kitten dies. Please think of the kittens.

    "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.

    It might just be me, but I don't see the sign.

    The only signs I see is that the industry is still hopped up on shooters.

    Not that it actually has anything to do with Grammar, but you're wrong.

    The term take with a grain of salt was implied that you consume a bit of salt before hand to make something easier to swallow. So taking it with with a boatload of salt would imply it's total BS. So please stop killing kittens with your incorrect attempts at corrections.
