Yea like the Gaffers pointed out, Sony has a stout supply line and launched in a lot more areas. I don't doubt the PS4 is doing really well.

Interesting that attach rates for the PS4/PS4 games were higher than PS3 and PS2 launches. Either a testamount to the demand for next gen, or journalists were full of turds that the launch lineup was underwhelming. Probably a bit of both IMO.

I'd wager the Target/Amazon B2G1Free deal attributed to this.

The new MGS is looking more and more like a spiritual successor to it as well.

The Amazon stock of Xbox One has been almost daily and usually lasts 6-8 hours. If anyone wants a One, they can get it easily. The PS4 is also easy to get, but the timing is much harder since it sells out so fast.

Microsoft is basically surrendering the world to Sony in an attempt to beat them in the US and the UK. This is where they can sell all their added services and where they stand to make the most money.

Sony's goal is to simply sell more worldwide. Doing this will make Microsoft's moneyhats much more expensive and therefore less likely to happen.

If Sony takes the US going into the spring then that is a crushing blow to Microsoft as they held an enormous lead last gen.

Where do you see Sony moved 1.1m in November? I've seen estimates at a mil and as high as 1.6m. The XBO fastest selling claim is stupid. It had 9 days in November after its release. Sony had 16. Obviously after stock is sold out on day one for both consoles the remaining days of the month are going to drag the average down for the console that came first. Stupid metric, but gotta put the spin out there for investors I guess.

1.1 million is the estimate from insiders on Gaf who have either seen the NPD or have contacts who have.

Sony moved a million+ on day one and had to reload. MS has been pretty steady at around 100k a day. So MS is bragging about selling the most but its a stupid pitch cause its daily vs lump sum.

Microsoft is also air lifting units in to increase supply (hence having stock everywhere almost daily) while Sony is using the slow barges that take over a month. (Microsoft has them as well, but they are going to have fewer units to sell later on because of this, they are going all out for these last few weeks before Christmas) Using air shipping also raises their losses per unit.

The real test will be to see who can maintain the most momentum into 2014. January's NPD will be the one to watch. (It will include all the Christmas returns, which will lower everyone's Numbers for the month) Nintendo got hit hard by this and their sales never recovered. Wii U is pretty much done sadly, I was hoping to at least get X before sales tanked too much, but they only moved 220k in November, that is abysmal.

Maybe Nintendo and Sony can form an alliance on the Console/handheld front, if they did that it would destroy any possible competition on the console front.

It would also give Nintendo a strong partner to bring their stuff to mobile in a controlled fashion. (They do need to at least bring the virtual console to phones, it is a gold mine waiting to happen)

You missed Amazon by a few hours (sold out in under an hour) but Walmart is allowed to sell those units they are holding. Just go in and ask if they have some in the back, they should sell it to you. (If that fails get a manager and tell them you have cash right now)

At this point, if you don't have a PS4, may as well wait until after Christmas. PENDRAG0ON is trying to be as helpful to the hopeful as possible, usually is, but if you really wanted a PS4, you'd have it by now with either a pre-order, or Black Friday.

Not missing much, at least until March. Chasing the PS4 Unicorn is just too harsh to continue guys. Trying to catch Amazon, which sells globally, and only gets less than 10K per shipment is just too unlikely. Its all about timing, you'll have to be at Wally Mart at midnight or something.

Walmart has no gag order to not sell those units, every store has stock right now because of the coming sale. (They just aren't on the floor)

THIS is probably your last chance to 100% get a console before Christmas. Get it while you can.

Xbox Ones and PS4s are selling out wherever they are, mostly, so the true test will come once stores have stock of both and people can actually pick.

Good to hear... you can troubleshoot the WIFI now, perhaps you have a phone or other device causing issues and you can just change channels on the router. I have a duel band N gaming adapter which I keep as a backup. Provides an Ethernet to the device but has a nice solid wireless connection which can be a few feet away from the other components .

A friend picked up the PSN Plus card for $29 during Black Friday and wants to redeem it. However he doesn't want to put in any credit card info. I know the 30 day free trial requires a card, but will he be able to activate his 1 year of PSN Plus using his code without entering any credit card info? Thanks.

I was unable to find anything however I would imagine that it should not since the point of those cards is for people who don't want to use credit cards or don't have them.  The trial is just in hopes that people forget and get auto charged.  But I have no proof that it won't be required sorry.

Do we have any news of War Thunder or Pinball Arcade? Both seem dead...at least in the US. I'm kind of wondering if WT won't become our January Plus freebie given it was only delayed here...

My kids have loved all the other lego games, though they're too old for this one now. They're usually well-done. If he likes Legos, and he likes Marvel. Win-win. Another option: If you have a PS3 just get him one of the older Lego games, like Star Wars, or Indiana Jones, Batman, etc. He'll enjoy it just as much and it will be quite a bit cheaper.

Enjoying BF4 on the PS4, bugs and all.

The lego games are actually a lot of fun even for adults. The puzzles in some of hte game can get a little too complex for younger kids.
