I went to BestBuy again this morning, right after they opened at 7AM, to get the Beyonce CD for my GF. Again another person was there asking about the PS4. The same thing happened a couple of days ago. Same answer too. They told them to get there early on Sunday and they would have them for sale. They did have Xbox Ones in stock at that store. If I had not picked up a PS4 this past week I wouldn't mind getting a second XBOne. If I get a second PS4 it probably won't be until they release a newer version with lower power, or have a price drop.

Best Buy is supposed to hold those Xbox Ones for Sunday as well, but stock is so plentiful that they stopped doing that almost two weeks ago.

Yes PS4 is in high-demand. Went to Target last night and they had Xb1 in about 5 different display cases...zero PS4s.

Cant wait to see what fluffy PR numbers MS will tout about the XB1 for December.

Once an item drops below 999 in stock you can attempt to add 999 and it will correct it to how many they have left. You can't track anything before that.

I was following all the drama since I was awake. Amazing thing is the slope of the lines. The PS4 was selling about 8x the XB1 before it went out of stock (ignoring the bundles), then still about 4-5x with the two more expensive bundles. The PS4 also sold out when most of NA was asleep!

All this is fine and good but it needs to be taken in context. You are talking about a system that is in high demand that has not been for sale. The XBOne has been for sale for a while on Amazon with a specific date of availability. The PS4 did not have this. So of course the sales are going to be higher over a shorter period of time.

I also don't think there is any question that the demand is higher for the PS4 than the XBOne, just based on launch numbers and the price difference.

But that thread at GAF, like many others over there, is crazy. With alot of conjecture about things that people certainly don't have all the data for proper context. They can only get the data for a time period where sales are below 1K. which has no bearing on the larger picture which also affects that time period where the small slice of data is gleaned from.



Hey I did my part earlier this week. biggrin.gif I bought a PS4 from BestBuy along with a PS4 camera and $120 in Playstation Store money.

And today I got $50 more in Playstation store money. Although I also got $50 for Xbox Live too.

Gamestop.

Seriously, they often have used copies the day after a game ships. Who knows what these are, but it isn't the first time they have gotten some in.

Not sure if its new or always been this way, but the DVR seems buggered. If you go to the PDM (party chat or friends list) and go back to the game it seems to cause the DVR to stop recording after 15 min immediately prior for the rest of the time the game is active. When you to share something, it'll only find that 15 min file ending right before you went to the PDM.

Seems the only way to get the DVR to continuously record is to not go to the PDM at all when in game.

Hopefully they fix this bug. Lost a few thing tonight when the only thing it saved was 3 hour old footage.

Is Sony not keeping up with demand or are they just selling out too fast for me to ever find one? I see XB1s being advertised in store ads, online and I can pretty much order online and check store inventory, but I can't do anything with the PS4 other than just call stores which I'm always told they haven't received anything. Well Best Buy is receiving a shipment tomorrow morning so I'm hoping to get one and not find anyone camping out for one.

This was my experience at my local Best Buy. They didn't even have any for the evening of an "Elite Silver RZ Customer" Event. The staff member told me that morning that they sold out of that shipment of PS4s that morning. I'm like WTF, what's the point of having an event for those types of customers, and then just sell out of the product the morning before the event goes on?

That's why I was surprised that Gamestop had it...and on a whim I just walked in, wasn't expecting anything, and *boom*, PS4 in hand. I gotta believe that GS got way bigger shipments than all the other places.

Now if I can stop staying up til 3a playing Lego Marvel... smile.gif

I don't know if BestBuy is using some kind of tactic of getting you to buy just one last thing after you bought just about everything you need on your christmas list, but they were the ones that made a public statement saying that they were confident that no one should have a problem getting a PS4 before the holidays and they would have plenty in stock and even online reservations, but I've only seen the XB1 available to purchase with in stock search availability.

After reading the last few pages I am glad i preordered.

Anyone on NFS please add me: Scoobdude

lastly, i just want to say that the awesome headphone feature is what got me busted playing the ps4 before the kids new about. Tried to be quiet as to not wake them...they just happened to get up early. DOH!!! In light of that thank sony for adding a pin to log into accounts that way they still can't play till xmas.

Lastly I am hoping they add parental controls like they did on the vita. Restricting how much they can play per day makes my life much easier smile.gif

The PS4 settings, are pretty light compared to the PS3.

They should add more and more as they get time to solidify PS4 features.

I picked one up today at 10am (3 hours after they opened). They must have had somewhere around 50 in stock. Very happy camper here - been looking for a PS4 since launch (didn't pre-order) and thought I'd have to wait much longer. Haven't played a game yet but finished set-up prior to the football game. Very easy set up, very clean interface, and I'm loving the Dualshock 4 so far. I'll have to see if I end up preferring it over my Xbox One...

If you are in the Seattle area and still looking for PS4; Fred Meyer in Issaquah (West Lake Sammamish) has some in stock. Sales rep said normally they sell out soon as they come in, but they have units as of this evening. Possibly the Best Buy in the same area too.

Man, Sony has left a ton of sales on the table with their supply issues. I have some friends that were very, very interested in getting a PS4, but they ended up settling for a Xbox One, cause it happened to be in stock. Maybe they should have limited the launch territories more.

That is the reason that MS has a lot more XBOne supply. They severely limited their territories that they are selling in. They are in nowhere near the number of territories that the PS4 is selling in. The XBOne is only being sold in something like thirteen territories while the PS4 is being sold in something like thirty two territories.

13 vs 48. Sony has 45 of those on lockdown. The US, UK and Aus are the three that Microsoft doesn't have units sitting on shelves since launch. They could have doubled down on just these three and probably done better.

Like I said in another thread, Microsoft handed Sony the world in an attempt to hold the US, and we will know by mid January how that has paid off for them. (December NPDs are going to be interesting) All the units sitting on shelves and the constant availability online don't inspire confidence in their upcoming numbers...

Thats odd because I was in my local gamestop and it is the opposite, no XB1 and some PS4 on the shelves. I know the guys pretty well (from buying so many freaking games) so I asked and he said initially the PS4 had way more pre-orders then the XB1 but they have now sold more XB1 after launch then the PS4. Guess it must be different by region or something.

They should of preordered.

We all knew it was going to sell out fast. So like we said before, your friends should be able to get one in Feb or March.
