I hope that Sony can beat them to the punch by a week or two for those that camp out at stores. Nothing like fanboy wars in person while waiting in line for a system.

With nearly 95% of the vote (approximately 94.7% in favor of the PS4) Amazon has decided to end the user poll between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 early. Back on June 13th the marketplace giant ran a Facebook poll to see which one consumers were more interested in between Microsoft and Sony's consoles and it appears that gamers have spoken quite loudly with their Facebook voting.

For now, the final numbers read 38984 votes in favor of the PlayStation 4 with only 2162 votes in favor of the Xbox One. Does anyone know how many employees work at Microsoft?

Originally, the poll was supposed to run for a week and end on June 20th, giving gamers plenty of time to cast a vote and comment in favor of the console they were most looking forward to. Unfortunately, Amazon cut the poll short after there was a massive and clearly lopsided showing of favoritism for one product over the other. This could also be an easy indicator for companies to use as a gauge for the potential purchasing habits of gamers and casual consumers alike for this fall.

Microsoft’s Major Nelson said in an interview recently that Sony’s PS4 console isn’t going to make them change anything about their Xbox One system.

The PS4 pretty much beat out the Xbox One in positive press this week with it’s lack of used game DRM, lack of 24-hour check-ins, and price tag. When asked if these announcements by Sony will influence Microsoft and make them change what they’re doing with Xbox One he had this to say:

“I don’t think,… I mean we’re really not going to change anything we’ve done with Xbox One. We’re very happy,… did you see the games on stage during our briefing? Did you see the exclusives? I mean we’re really really proud of the system and the games that are coming out. When you look at games like TitanFall,… have you gone through Titanfall yet? Enough said. Conversation over. We’re really happy with what we showed on stage as well as what we’re showing here in the booth so I think it is uh,… it’s safe to say that we’re confident where we’re going. We’re also confident that gamers are going to love our vision of the future and what we’re going to offer for gaming”

Nelson seems a bit on the defensive here and I feel sympathy for him. I’ve always liked him personally and his job just got a lot harder with all the controversial policies of the Xbox One.

Of course, even if Microsoft planned to change something about the Xbox One in response to Sony’s PS4 they wouldn’t make that decision so quickly and wouldn’t admit it was Sony that influenced it. Still, they seem very proud of everything they’re doing with the Xbox One and hopefully when the system releases they tweak a few of their policies for the better.

Well, guess well see how this new direction works out for them. Can a $500 media box that "does games" interest AV fanatics, without the hardcore gamer being the base driving installation? Are people in the media vasty underestimating 360' fans attachment to the brand? Or are they more attached to games and like that Sony is hitting all the right notes and not getting between them and the game?

Interesting times. E3 was crazy this year, and it looks like the roller-coaster will continue for the foreseeable future.

I just realized I haven't seen any XBone commercials on TV. I see that PS commercial posted earlier all the time. Is MS even trying?

I am really interested in seeing the final retail packaging for both. MS is going to need to have the "Internet Required" clearly labeled on all systems and games or risk having multiple returns.

I can See sony taking advantage of this as well on their packageing so people can read the differences on the side of the box.

They do this with PS3 currently, and it works. The free trials they give out all the time are also great.

You know, with how lopsided that poll is, we may see some of the third party timed exclusives coming to the XBone jump early, that is just an overwhelming responce that I just can't see publishers passing up on the PS4 for that long, the contract with Microsoft may not be worth as much as the potential sales they are passing up on.

Which is exactly why I went the Amazon route, mine will be hand delivered by FedEx on launch day. I'm way past the age were it is fun to stand in line with all the "living in moms basement" nerds.

I stood in line for MW3 just to say I had done it once, showed up 20 till midnight got out past one. Walmart across the street never has a line and I worked there at the time so I could just take my last break at midnight and pick up whatever I wanted right at midnight, worked out great.

It has begun:

PS4 components reportedly start shipping in June

The upstream supply chain reportedly has already started shipping orders for the PlayStation 4 (PS4) in June, and volumes may reach one million units per month by September for the year-end holidays.

Remember, Sony said they want to sell 16 million of these puppies by March 31, 2014.

Even if they are spot on, will they launch on the same day in the EU and USA? I was hoping PS4 would be earlier because they seem to be further ahead than MS as far as their plan and hardware based on what we saw at E3.

Head honcho Jack Tretton in an interview glowing over the positive buzz of their new baby. He confidently says that Sony will sell more PS4s this Christmas season than any hardware launch in their gaming history.

That was right after E3, I wonder how they are feeling now that demand is clearly so much higher for their console.

I for one don't see both launching a week before Thanksgiving (in the US). Although it's going to be a simultaneous launch in the US and UK they still have to think about the time of year. And for both to launch on the same day regardless of what holiday is a week a way would be unheard of. I'd love to see Sony launch a week or two before Microsoft just to nail that final coffin into the xbox coffin.

We have nothing to fear but fear itself... and spiders

They really, really, really need to get their PSN titles ported, running on PS4 X86, and allow those who already purchased them on PS3 access on the PS4.

There's really no reason not to, especially since a large number of PSN titles are cross platform with PC already. They're mostly all not terribly taxing games anyways.

That PSN titles won't work, and there seems to be no plan to get them working, is really stupid. I'm ok with PS3 full games not coming, because I understand the problems involved. PSN title, no excuse really.

Evil baby is a bad omen :) Honestly the paywall for multiplayer is the ONLY thing to complain about in the entire PS4 launch, and considering we're talking about Sony here, its all a little too good to be true!

At least PS1 titles should make the jump. They currently work on every Sony device that can access the PSN. Sony needs to start working on getting every PS2 and PS3 working on the x86 standard to ensure future compatability for all Playstation family games.

If the PS4 does capture a lot of 360 owners, it would seem like a smart move. You would open up titles to a new audience and hopefully get additional revenue.

Something will go wrong. Things are just too lopsided that the universe needs to correct itself. Regardless, I have pre-ordered the BF4 launch version from Amazon.
