PS4, Xbox One day-one editions sold out on Amazon

Retailer sells through stock of release day editions, though standard units remain available.

Retailer Amazon has sold through its stock of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release day editions, the company announced today.

"The PS4 & Xbox One release day editions are sold out," the company said on Twitter. "You can still pre-order the Standard Editions, we just can't promise a delivery date."

It is unclear if stock for the $400 PS4 Launch Edition or $500 Xbox One Day One Edition will be replenished. A representative for Amazon Video Games was not immediately available to comment.

The next-generation consoles are going quickly not only at Amazon, but also through GameStop, which is no longer accepting any PS4 preorders due to "high demand." Meanwhile, the Xbox One is sold out at Best Buy.

The PS4 and Xbox One launch this holiday. Unlike last generation, both systems will debut during the same holiday period.

I'm really excited for both consoles. I'm really looking forward to xbox one. If the rumors are true that the system is getting a bump in power and with directx11.2 it may very well out perform ps4 but I'm more concerned about the games and I know both systems will deliver. Xbox one has a crap load of potential I just hope they use the features wisely.

wow. first off competition is good. The people who want MS to go away are idiots. I have both the ps3 and the xbox 360. hands down the 360 is a better overall system the fools that say otherwise are fanboys. now, most of the arguments i hear of getting the ps4 is basically down to money and value. but I want the xbox 1 because of technology. the cloud, being able to use just one device instead of switching back and forth using my remote to watch tv, and the kinnect 2 is an awesome piece of technology. but but...the ps4 saves money. then go save money!!! quit your bitching ps4 fools. buy your system and shut your ass up. all i hear is whining out of ps4 dorks. shut up already lol. wow, you saved money. good for you.

I think people are applying last gen to this gen way more then they should.  I think ps3 was better last gen without things like halo, gears, minecraft (only exclusives that ever mattered to me) and in-game party chat.  This year PS4 is catching up on all those missing features like the chat.  The PS4 will be much much easier to design for meaning better games a lot faster.  And as far as online service went, I played both online A LOT, and I didn't notice anymore problems and lag on one than the other, so people stating Live was a so much better service are full of BS. ( minus the Anonymous PSN hacking thing awhile ago)  Also as far as I can tell they will both be released about the same time so no head start by Microsoft. (in the end lead to massive hardware failure by them)  As far as the price goes, it is really nice of them to force another product (kinect) onto you for an additional $100.  Maybe they should throw a couple extra controllers on too, since you might wan them eventually, raise the price to like $550.  Good sales idea.  But it seems the only bad things people can throw on the PS4 are things that happened to the PS3, because so far Sony hasn't completely screwed up the Ps4 yet and there is nothing notably bad about it like the Xbone.

I know since I am not going to preorder I more than likely won't be getting my PS4 until probably a couple months after launch, and with these systems selling like hotcakes already it may be more like 2014. Maybe GTAV and Watch Dogs can help keep me tied over. Oh, and Dark Souls 2, which is my most anticipated doesn't even come out till 2014 and only for current gen. What do I do? I guess it's a good problem to have.

Why do people consistently deny that exclusive titles played no role in their allegiance to a particular console? I'm not going to buy a PS4 just because people over the internet that I've never met said the specs and features were better. If all you care about is hardware specs and the latest technology then buy a fucking PC.

Who said I didn't have a 360? I do, and I like it.

My reason for preordering the Xbox one was based purely on the fact I enjoyed playing the 360 exclusive titles and have grown accustom to the brand. I don't HATE the PS, I use to own a PSX and a PS2 and I'm sure the PS4 is just as good or better than the Xbox but I'm sure as hell not buying 2 consoles. The majority of my gaming time is spent playing shooters, so all I need is nice shiney next gen graphics, copious amounts of blood and a controller. All the voice recognition and motion sensor crap is always slow, unreliable, embarrassing to use and draws me out of the game. (If I wanted to do the hand gesture to throw a ball, I would go outside and throw a fucking ball)

I'm not a "fanboy" of any system, since my very first system was an Atari. I have both Sony and Microsoft products that I use daily. With all my years of experience, Sony has the BEST overall performance and reliability than Microsoft. Microsoft clearly showed their true colors when they were blasting consumers to deal with their product and making fun of people in the military for not having internet access (and I'm USAF). I have a 360 and I have missed on some of the best games that came from Sony and their exclusives. Some of them I use to play back on the PSX. The only Xbox exclusive I like is Gears of War, and now that's getting played out. I'm done with Microsoft gaming and am slowly weening off the rest of their products one by one. They won't be getting any more of my hard earned money.

Drinking game: Pick an article that is about the Xbox One or PS4 that has a good amount of comments. Every time you see the word "fanboy" or "fan", take a shot. See how far you last.

I've preordered mine and just realized I'm not too fond on any of the games out on day one.......fucking idiot.....

However, I will buy both but I prefer XB1 really for my family. Why?

- XB live game and its online system is better, clearly.

- XB 1 will have more fun in living room via Kinect...No need to buy expensive smart TV equipped with normal camera but priced with 3 times higher than normal TV. XB1 will perform the incremental functions like internet, hand gesture, internet and so on....XB1 will do it better.

- Likely better cloud system...Microsoft knows this technology very well. This should be next area of competition. Doubt on Sony ability that is never strong on software and with cost cutting, loss and reducing headcount....It a problem to catch up.

- Install Kinect...Better game experience, better for game developers, for Kid and for my wife. Kinect technology is better than Eye from PS 4,too.

- Powerful OS inside....It is tweak version of Win 8. So, probably it may run Windows desktop software. Developers will probably launch many softwares after launching. Future is bright. Many developers who get familiar with win 8 code will find it comfortable to write software for XB1.

- Cable box inside....another cable box inside..You have another cable subscription as an another alternative....It is cool. You like it or not....Never mind, it just included. good hah

- More expensive than PS4 ?....Yes with Kinect installed. Anyway, it is cheaper than Iphone or its Sony flagship phone, though.

Wow your a liar I had a ps3 playing online was a nightmare lag lag lag booting booting booting patches and updates took forever that's when it wasn't down. Xbox 360 play play play no problems at all updates took only seconds

@gosushi So you bought a 360 over the PS3 just for Halo and Gears? Well to each his own I guess. But I don't see why you couldn't switch back to Playstation, you were accustomed with it before getting a 360 but that didn't stop you then, why should that stop you now. 

Just get the better console, whichever that may be, not saying that's the PS4 (as a PC gamer sure seems like it is from my POV) but you might wanna reconsider what you take into account before getting one over the other. Brand is not a good reason :), just saying.

When their wallets hurt, companies listen. People say "Microsoft only wants to make money!" Well yeah! Duh! Their paychecks don't come out of thin air. People aren't forced to buy Microsoft's or Sony's products, you choose to buy them. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Enough people do  that and I'm sure they'll revise their tactics to get you to buy their products. Gaming companies aren't our parents, who have to give us what we want. If they want our money they will have to, but you can't force them to. Rant over

@Ayebang I have a Kinect and I RARELY use it. They hype it up, but the voice recognition for games is horrible. I only use it for dancing games, which I rarely play anymore. The cloud system has its drawbacks and its NOT good for games due to lag. We already have trouble with wired lag. There is definitely not a cable box inside and its just like the 360, which is NOT a replacement for a cable box. The Kinect, to me, is a creepy spy device. Even though they tell you that it can be shut off, its STILL CONNECTED. ANYONE can hack into it. It cant operate without the Kinect and that is a HUGE security problem for me.

Most gamers hate kinect and don't see it as an asset but a liability.microASCAM would sell more xbones one 80 if they got rid of kinect.

@Ayebang As I posted yesterday as an answer to this exact same thing from you. The "Cable box inside" comment is entirely wrong. There is no additional cable service on your Xbox. The One is intended to act as a motion/voice activated remote control for your TV. It augments your existing cable subscription, it doesn't add to it.

Everything else is entirely subjective. You're overselling the Kinect

@dsb333 @GrandChahee  I was in my local best buy yesterday and they still had one left of the xbox one thats what made me check today. But ya looks like their officially back again.

@Daian @gosushi His reasoning for the 360 is valid. The Halo and Gears series are just as good as the Uncharted and Killzone series, just a little different genre's. Beyond the main exclusives for each console, they both have damn near the same games. I own both 360 and ps3 but prefer my 360's controller and online service.  Whether or not PS4 is better than X1 is left to be seen. I hear the same hardwar jargon before the launch of the current gen and really havent seen anything on my ps3 that would make me think the hardware is better.  Just my opinion I guess.  I think both next gen consoles are going to be awesome but as far as innovation is concerned, MS's got the edge/

gosushi
gosushi

@Daian @gosushi Yes, I admit that Gears and Halo were 2 major drawing points and it was also the console that my friends were buying so I couldn't think of any reason to purchase a PS3 because I knew I'd want a 360 as soon as I did. 

The definition of 'better' is really in the eye of the beholder.

@Daian @gosushi His/Her money to spend on anything he/she wants. The Xbox One is just as good as the PS4 and there is no reason not to by either besides one is 10% more powerful.

@Lil_Scorpio2005 @Ayebang I recommend you to take off your camera in your notebook first to let you secure. It is huge security problem really.

By the way, do not buy Google Glass too. It is online 24 hrs.

Ayebang
Ayebang

@evil_snuggles to be exact...Most unreasonably anti Microsoft gamers do not like Kinect although  It is the best camera in game.

It is good for kid, for my family. I want it to play game with my kin, not for me alone in my living room.

Microsoft confirmed that they will not share your pic or video recorded by Kinect without your permission.

Take off your camera in your Iphone or Sony laptops first before let Microsoft take off Kinect.

valknight

@evil_snuggles Not at all actually. A variety of gamers understand the capabilities of the kinect and no true gamer would say oh I wouldn't love to have extra features that could make my game better.. Voice commands.. No way we wouldnt want that.. Are you kidding me? Gamers would love to have extra ways of doing the same things. 

Ayebang

@northArrow @Ayebang The One will have subscription service like you have cable box. That what Microsoft means and PS 4 cannot provide this.

Warner Brothers also confirmed there will be in XB 1 already for the subscription.

@Lil_Scorpio2005 @gosushi haha well of course you have an accent, we all do. I bet if I were the one saying, "shoot the ball" the Xbox would probably open Halo 4....

Lil_Scorpio2005
Lil_Scorpio2005

@gosushi I don't have an accent and it sucks, lol. I was playing NBA 2K13 using the Kinect and you can tell the players that you aren't controlling to shoot the ball. So I clearly (and loudly so the Kinect could hear me) said, "Shoot the ball" and I got called for a Technical Foul for foul language. Lmao. Good Stuff.

@Ayebang @evil_snuggles It is just a remote possibility, but this "only with your permission" is not an absolute truth. As Snowden leaked, MS have to give your information to the gov. if they ask to.

That's not true its integrated into the Xbone one 80. Post me a link saying different please.that is why they can't sell the xbone one 80 without the kinect its integrated in the system

@evil_snuggles As Microsoft said Kinect can be turned off, not like Google Glass which it is always on.

I hope you will not wear Google glass to post anti Microsoft comments, particularly on Kinect.

@Ayebang @northArrow I read something like that somewhere.  I think it was a game informer mag that meantioned something about X1 cable service but I cant provide the proof or link.  If I find it I'll post.

northArrow

@Ayebang  No, the Xbox One does not have a subscription service. You need to get that from a local provider.

Warner Brothers isn't a cable provider, they're a studio/entertainment company

Grenadeh

@Ayebang @northArrow I'm on your side but I'm 100% certain there is no TV subscription, as far as cable goes, through the XB1. It is a gateway between the cable box and the TV, just like plugging in your console to your surround sound receiver and then plugging your receiver in to your TV.
