    UK retailer expecting Xbox One to outsell PS4

    Head technology buyer for John Lewis chain of department stores gives advantage to Microsoft's console this holiday season.

    http://www.gamespot.com/articles/uk-.../1100-6415515/

    United Kingdom retailer John Lewis is expecting greater interest in the Xbox One than the PlayStation 4 this holiday season. Head technology buyer for the department store chain Jonathan Marsh told TrustedReviews (via GamesIndustry International) that Microsoft has the advantage and its console will outsell the PS4.

    "We are expecting more interest in the Xbox One," Marsh said. "We are stocking both the PS4 and the Xbox One, but if we were to back one, we are thinking that Xbox One will appeal a bit more to our customers in terms of the experience it creates."

    "If we had to edge one I would favor the Xbox One," he added.

    The Xbox One may have a higher price tag than the PS4 ($500 vs. $400), but Marsh said the Xbox One's launch lineup and online platform will set it apart from the PS4.

    Marsh is not alone in his prediction that the Xbox One outperforming the PS4 this year. Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said in July that Microsoft's console could outship the PS4 by a 3:1 ratio at launch.

    On the other side, a report from the International Data Corporation this month concluded that the PS4 would outsell the Xbox One due to a "variety of factors" but most directly its lower price point relative to the Xbox One.

    The PS4 launches on November 15 in North America, with the Xbox One following on November 22.

    just a shame that no person whom you might consider to be not so cool shops at john lewis', unless they are an undesireable sort of person that doesn't hold a high position in your regard

    I edited your post Mr Shafty. We will keep the swear filter off so long as these more informal words are used in moderation and in a classy manner. That was a lil too much. We are a family friendly site after all.

    want in one hand $#@! in the other, see which fills up the fastest.
    I don't think there is any way that at the end of the year xb1 will have out sold the ps4.

    I think there's a fair chance the Xbone will at least keep up with the PS4 here in the UK. And might just edge it. For some reason the Xbox brand loyalty here is HUGE and the moneyhatting of FIFA swayed several people I know who were on the fence.

    Expect the PS4 to curbstomp it elsewhere in Europe, but the UK is going to be a battle.

    You could be right, UK is a strange market. UK was the only market in EU that the 360 did better then ps3 if irc.

    a good reason to buy from them is the free 2-5 year warranty you get from them.
    no sign of Xbox ONE for sale on there web site as yet, so don't know if its 2 or 5 year warranty they will give.

    Now I love what MS is doing with the X1 and I want to see it do well, but Ps4 will have it beat come launch period.

    That said I could imagine the puzzled outrage if MS did it, nobody would have seen it coming. :P

    Parents who are not pikeys?
    Pikeys are rich $#@!ers though so that makes no sense, the 2 year guarantee is good thou
    But it is a serious question, who buys consoles from John Lewis's? TV's yeah because they stock an exclusive range sometimes but John Lewis's would be the last place I'd buy a console from, its just not the first place to come to mind
    PC World or Currys yeah, but John Lewis's? Nah.

    Not your usual slab a driveway pikey!

    Again people that will buy from John Lewis are non chav parents who shop in John Lewis how on earth is that hard to understand?

    John Lewis is a fantastic shop! Especially for things like TV's, Lights, Furniture etc etc

    i've always found them to be a great place to buy from and they have the mantra of "Never Knowingly Undersold" that has been in place since 1925, this along with their free extended warranty's is somewhat of an excellent thing to have.

    but hey... you can take a horse to water and all that.

    I highly doubt PS4 will out sell the X1. The UK is a hotspot for Microsoft!
