    UK Chains: "PS4 orders to top demand for Xbox One five to one."

    'Sony has captured the hearts of indie retail'

    Top independent chains have told MCV that PS4 is already ‘winning the war’ against Xbox One.
    Games Centre’s MD Robert Lindsay says the platform holder has done the better job of winning over independent retailers with its level of support.
    “Sony has definitely captured the hearts and minds of the independent sector,” said Lindsay. “We’ve had fantastic support from CentreSoft and Sony for the PS4 launch, which has helped make it our biggest launch ever.
    Chips MD Don McCabe added: “They’re winning the war. Sony has the enthusiasm and they want to be No.1.”
    McCabe says Sony’s hands-on approach has led his PS4 orders to top demand for Xbox One five to one.
    SCE sales director Alex Coultate says indies are crucial for PlayStation.
    “They’re really important to us,” he said. “We view the specialist sector as GAME and independents. There’s just a huge amount of focus on them.”

    Bring on the launch day! So, to give a synopsis. Sony sold 1 million PS4s in one day in the NA territory while XBones are collecting dust on store shelves in LA as well as NYC.. This week, they are set to dominate the 360s second strongest territory 5:1. Slaystation Domination Continuation.

    5:1? that doesn't surprise me. The PS4 just seems more like the better gaming console. I can still watch netflix on it along with other video apps they have on there.

    Hope this is true as all our rl gamer friends here have picked up the One because they have a ton of friends in their Live friends list which they'll lose otherwise. I feel like we're the only ones getting a PS4 on Friday at the moment (despite trying to coerce some of our friends into getting one)

    I want to see how many people not buy a ps4 due to kinect and tvtvtvnewwatercooler.

    I can't wait to hear the excuses that pop up. "Sony had 2 extra weeks to produce ps4's...blah blah blah".

    lol. people get real creative about coming up with excuses to downplay facts that don't favor their console of choice. that's on both sides though.

    ^ I'm thinking about just asking a friend to accompany me (even though they won't be there to "help" me with it) just for the midnight pickup.

    I was pleasantly surprised by a heavy police presence at our midnight launch. And they even had two cops inside the mall watching the line. The parking lot had 3 police units watching the parking lot and a non-uniform officer standing outside the front doors also watching the lot. As it turned out there were no incidents reported in our town.

    That's good to hear. Not that we have guns, but you can still get jumped and stabbed. Not good.

    But yeah IIRC the last midnight launch (GTA5 etc) had at least 1 or 2 mall cops. Not as good as proper cops, but better than nothing. Hopefully that's at least the case.

    Eh if I am reading the article right, independent retailers have had better support for Sony, and that has translated into better demand from their customers?

    LOL, well if they aren't just telling customers that the Xbox is crap then I don't know what is going on here, because support for retails chains shouldn't translate to demand by consumers, it can result in shortages by independent retailers, but not 5:1 pre-order demand.
    Doesn't make a lot of sense.

    Might help if they update their storefront.
    They own 4 stores BTW.

    Yes, umm independent retail shop isn't really an indication of the market in general.
    No one buys from Chips, they nearly went bankrupt. Thats coudl well mean they sold 20 PS4 to 5 Xbox ones.
    But if it does represent the wider retail market from the big boys, then indeed it will be a slaughter, but something tells me it isn't.

    The ps4 is out selling the Xbox One. To deny this is absurd

    True.

    The thread title is just a "tad" misleading as well.

    Small retailer:"PS4 orders top demand for xbox one five to one"

    Would be more accurate.

    At 150k XBO in the first 48 hours, the PS4 is going to have to sell 750k in the first 48 hours to fulfill 5:1 in the UK, BTW.
