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.

    Tomorrow, microsoft PR will just do it again, and some ‘friends’ like forbes,gamespot, polygon, etc, will write another ‘pro’ article and will announce that currently, there are 1’800’001 gamers in NA alone that are waiting for their xbox one, according to the latest official numbers from the ‘magical excel sheet’, backed up by the latest stats and dead rising 3 killed zombies X total miles run on forza5 X total decapitations on Ryse / killer instinct total combos made’ formula.

    And naturally, even if the xbox one is available everywhere since day one, and never was sold out, PR guys will just say the opposite, and will beg people to grab one, because they might not be available before Easter 2014.

    First off, I have no idea why people think that either system is going to lose. Both are going to be just fine. I know for a fact that X1’s are hard to get a hold of, based on personal experience in a couple of states. You can call me a fanboy all you want, but Titanfall is going to change FPS and the seamless multimedia transitions from Windows to the X1 is pretty awesome.

    There’s no console shortage. They have warehouses full of these things ! Do people honestly think they only made a limited amount of these things ? They’re pumping them out everyday !! It’s all a sales ploy to make people rush out and buy one before they are “all gone”

    You people are idiots. Coming from someone who works at GameStop, BOTH systems have been selling out equally. MS has just been sending steady shipments while we’re getting next to nothing from Sony. We got one launch batch of 60. A shipment of like 5 the week after. And 20 for black Friday. Since then we’ve got 5. Xboxs have been coming and going every week.

    I was fortunate enough to pre order both the X1 day one edition and the PS4. I saw the prices on Ebay for these systems and they are truly ridiculous.
