Damn, someone needs to bend microsoft over, because they are receiving a SPANKING!

Isn't 150:30 5:1? I was always thought you give the smallest possible numbers when comparing like that..

My guess is that a Gamestop Manager isn't exactly a math major from a major university. This is America we're talking about, as well.

Well this is just one store manager and in his store he says it's about 150 PS4s and about 30 xBones, it's not really representative at all.

EDIT:
Also the source is some reddit post, it's not even clear this really was a manager at all

You don't learn that at university. It's more of a primary school thing. I'm not sure why he'd present it in such a way.

emm you dont need to be a math major to know that, just common sense?

Well that's....rather a lot, isn't it. Hmm.

Hasn't MS been sold out of Xbone preorders for a while now? Could they be having production issues?

#14 Posted by ankor77 (956 posts) -

While I believe PS4 may have some more pre-orders I certainly wouldn't take a Gamestop store managers word for it. I wouldn't take any one dude with anecdotal experience from his own store as actual numbers. Lets wait to see actual sales numbers. We probably shouldn't even compare until at least after Christmas or even later.

#15 Posted by FIipMode (10846 posts) -

It is just one store, not that I expect it to be drastically different across the US at GS.

#16 Posted by Sushiglutton (5260 posts) -

It's because 150/30 are the total pre-order numbers for his store I think.

yes its a lot but I don't care as long as I get my xbox one on the 22nd.

Pre orders dont mean much, I've said it all along. Lets wait 6 months after launch and see how each console is selling compaired to the previous consoles.

#22 Edited by bezza2011 (2408 posts) -

Not having a dig or disrespectful but America like to make everything big so saying 150:30 just makes thing look massive, and it just wouldn't be american if he'd of just said 5:1.

Thats how i see america from here in the UK, US always do things on Epic Proportions. lol

Cows make themselves look dumber by the minute.

They are SOLD OUT OF BOTH. So, that means Sony allotted that store 150 PS4's, and MS allotted that store 30 XBoxOne's. How is that any indication of the market demand for each console?

Shows how believable a source it is. Assuming it's not completely made up, this dude struggles with elementary level math. I don't trust his ability to make comparisons based off of math.

His store have 150/30 pre-orders in total. That's why he replied to: "How many PS4 perorders have you received at your store in total?" with: "I think my store hit ~150 vs ~30 XBone"

i wish the UK was so hyped up about everything, i mean i watch a football (soccer) game through streaming and it was on an american sports coverage and i watched an advert about a documentary for liverpool fc and i'd seen the advert for it here and i watched the show but i honestly can say the documentary wasn't that but the advert made it out to be life or death an epic battle was crazy the one thing i don't like about US tv is how much advertising there is they advertise everything, UK hasn't been hit by that just yet. lol

Jesus one manager and it deserves a actual post? Are you kidding me?

#32 Posted by BigShotSmoov007 (252 posts) -

It's outselling by that much but yet you can't go in any gamestop in america and preorder an XBO anymore? You can't go online and preorder a XBO at all and he gives those numbers which indicates that they would have some to still preorder? This doesn't make any sense at all.

Yes, it's a 5 to 1 ratio.

That store manager is saying they have 150 PS4 pre-orders and only 30 Xbox One Pre-orders.

Who the hell is going to believe some random Gamestop store manager? Only bias cows of course. lol!! They aren't allowed to disclose unit numbers, so he's probably pulling it out of his ass. We've already seen news that the XB1 had more preorders in Sept then the PS4. So take any of this news with a grain of salt. No one is taking PS4 preorders anymore and XBox One can still be preordered in some locations.

What?? This game from some random guy on Sony's Reedit? LMAO!! Total BS then.

************************************************************************************

Actually it's the PS4 that has been sold out for weeks now. No one is taking PS4 preorders, not even Amazon. Xbox One preorders are still available at some locations, but they are pretty much sold out as well now.

Link? And you do know the PS4 stopped taking perorders in September so if The Xbox One couldn't outsell it that'd be terrible

Prepare for him to give you a link to VGChartz. That's right, he's going to give you a link to VGChartz to prove his point while claiming only a bias cow would believe a Gamestop manager.

From Aug 25 to Oct 21 the PS4 has 125K preorders and the XBox One had 175K preorders.

http://www.vgchartz.com/article/251359/ps4-vs-xbox-one-us-pre-orders-update-xbox-one-gains-ground/

As of today there are no more preorders until 2014. I was wrong about XB1. They are now completely sold out as well. Back in October they did still have preorders, but not anymore.

Dude at best buy said the same thing. 4 or 5 to one ratio in favor of the PS4. XBone being "sold out" is MS just trying to save face and make it look like Xbone is in demand.

LMAOOOOOOOO

For months lems said it wasn't so despite every shred of evidence pointing to such

I tell lems, in the real world nobody cares about X1. It's even worse than on the net
