Sony has been lying every day since the reveal in Feb. Why would anything change?

Sony: Mediocre Awaits 11/15/13................or when we get around to it.

In North America it probably is true but World Wide i really doubt it. If Sony stopped taking pre-orders it might be true.

Anybody who thought either one of the consoles was not going to sell out at launch this year was just fooling themselves. Console wars are not a sprint, it's a marathon. Launches are irrelevant 2-3 years down the line. Going by launches the PS3 should have been dead in the water but it caught up to the 360 and even surpassed it in most regions.

Launches don't mean squat.

Probably not worldwide since the Xbox is only launching in like 13 countries or whatever number it is

No one knows for any country, including MS. They'd have to know how many Sony has and I seriously doubt they know.

Has there been extra? I just see the usual losers posting. I don't know how, but the place has become worse since the new site.

Sure you do MS. No one knows how many preorders Sony has except for the fact they have over a million. MS being as desperate as ever.

#18 Edited by Shewgenja (8453 posts) -

I see those MS dollars hard at work this weekend. Turning System Wars into an XBox commercial is a great idea.

“When I saw reports of Sony having a million or 1.5 million pre-orders for the PS4, I didn’t even think twice about it. We’re not disclosing pre-order numbers at the moment for accounting reasons but I know for a fact we have just as many. Don’t be bogged by published statistics. At the end of all this, what matters is the games you want to play.

Hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....

We won't say how many but believe us we have just as much,but with no real number that can come and byte us in the ass..

MS like always lying..Oh and Reddit..lol

The problem with this is simple.

1- A so call developer on reddit since when developer talk about sales of hardware.

2-MS has less units for launch than the PS4 and will release in only 13 countries.

3-EU and Japan are big sony strong holds specially Japan where the xbox one will sell nothing.

4-Even on US what is been know is that the PS4 is outselling the xbox one.

So when you take this all into account you see this is nothing more than damage controls or something false,if the xbox one was selling just as hot we all know MS would be yelling it all over the internet.

And yet you are on the thread flaming cows like always,shouldn't you be hyping one of those un know PC games that you people love to brag so much that always end scoring lower than consoles ones.?

Oh wait i forgot lemming by day hermit by night..lol

You are as much as a Hermit as Major Nelson is..lol

No defending the xbox one and refusing to apply the same rules to it is what make you a closet lemming.

Top Lel! What is there to defend? Sony got it right. They did EVERYTHING people wanted them to do after what they got wrong with the PS3. THEN, they amass a ton of games in 2013 for both the PS3 and PS4. Meanwhile, in LemBot Landonia, you have MS top brass talking about general entertainment whilst spending hundreds of millions of dollars to secure NFL content and you have a camera shoved in every box that you are paying out the nose for.. and the system itself isn't even holding a candle to the PS3 as far as games go.

You're so backwards it's comical.

#29 Edited by GTSaiyanjin2 (5809 posts) -

No clue how how MS knows Sony's pre order #'s but okay. Also has a console ever sold over a million on launch day?

#30 Edited by NineTailedGoku (1927 posts) -

@clyde46: If you were a hermit, you'd hate on Lems and Cows. Lems here are just as bad and worse than Cows. Cows have just had more ammo lately. In other words, you're a closet Lem.

1 - pick and choose what you want to believe or not... that's what all the hardcore fanboys have been doing since the first whiff of next gen consoles.

2 - Sony is releasing only 10 consoles in Argentina at launch and they cost $1,100 US dollars... do you see where the issue here? congrats sony for releasing in another country... pfft.

3 - good luck with your launch in a few weeks in Japan Sony... do your homework Tormentos...

4 - Will be interesting to see how this comes in, given... I think it'll be closer to 50/50 than the net likes to think... but we'll see.

#32 Posted by RimacBugatti (1191 posts) -

Well hopefully Driveclub delay doesn't hinder the PS4 launch.

#33 Edited by arkephonic (6239 posts) -

There's a few things to take into consideration. Ps4's preorder numbers don't represent how many consoles will be available at launch. They are limiting stores to 10 preorders. For example, I talked to the store manager at Fred Meyer, and he said the store could only accept 10 preorders but will be receiving 35-40 consoles on launch day and there was a good chance of getting one without a preorder. He said that Sony is limiting the amount of preorders stores can sell because they want PS4 to be available to the general public.

All that aside, this looks like M$ PR bullsh*t at its finest and they're just trying to make it sound like their console is as desirable as a ps4.

PR is what gets the people to jump in a lot of cases... we are the small minority that follows the behind the scene stuff.... Gotta PR to sell

Nope, Cows are worse. At least Lems stick to their story. Cows change their tune more times than a whore changes her underwear.

@Far_RockNYC: you realize this is just a dev.....a DEV someone who makes games and has nothing to do with the PR side or the numbers side

no penello

no major nelson

a dev on reddit lol how in the fuck would he know

#38 Edited by Liquid_ (2438 posts) -

even if it were true, people are probably just buying it to sell on e-bay to make profit.

#39 Posted by APiranhaAteMyVa (2869 posts) -

They probably will both be sold out at launch. Numbers are going to be whatever they can manufacture and ship in time really.

#40 Edited by lamprey263 (23115 posts) -

I think for now there will be enough demand to keep buying what either Sony or MS make and ship to retailers. Who does better early next gen might result on who can get them out quicker, at least for a while.

#41 Posted by stereointegrity (10700 posts) -

@APiranhaAteMyVa: and with MS yield issues and dropping to only 13 launch countries i doubt their pre order number this guys is saying is bs

Microsoft fanboys will salvage whatever scraps they can.

lol desperate lems using devs on reedit as confirmation now.

#44 Posted by jer_1 (7451 posts) -

Riiiiiight, I really believe this one. I'm sure the bone numbers might be catching up slightly but I'm pretty dubious to the "fact" that they are the same as the PS4 reserves.

#45 Posted by II_Seraphim_II (20493 posts) -

Does Sony share its preorder numbers with MS or something? Cause im curious as to how they have said numbers....

Being thoroughly entertained by rabid cows such as yourself hardly makes someone a lemming. For example, I couldn't care less about X1, or the 360, but I love the sight of riled up cows.... and I love adding some fuel to the fire! ;)

I know right... such a cow tactic.

#48 Edited by waltefmoney (18030 posts) -

Sony is relying too much on good faith, it was bound to happen. They should have put more effort into their launch lineup instead of trying to win the hearts and minds of forum dwellers.

#49 Posted by SirSlimyScott (266 posts) -

I highly doubt it considering they're selling their product in less countries.

#50 Edited by Shewgenja (8453 posts) -

Kaz Hirai is all calling up Steve Ballmer and giving him daily updates on how many PS4s are preordered..
