Rumor – Almost 2M users in Gamestop PS4 waiting list
A poster on Beyond3D forum (one of the most important forums dedicated to tech talk on technology and videogames) shared some interesting data on retail figures. First of all, there’s the stunning number of 1.8 million customers in the current wait/notify list of Gamestop for a PlayStation 4, while Xbox One is measured at 400K.
Here’s some more interesting data regarding the actual sales in North America during the launch period. Supposedly, PlayStation 4 placed 456K units between Gamestop and BestBuy, while Xbox One placed 232K units. Also, the rumor which claimed Xbox One to have beaten PlayStation 4 in Black Friday sales (again, for Gamestop and BestBuy) is confirmed by the poster, but only because most of these stores had more available Xbox One units to sell in that period.
Again, this is a rumor but one that seemed worth reporting on. We’ll keep you updated.
