I like what Im hearing! :D Grabbing a PS4 and X1 at launch and if possible resell the X1 for 1000+ on EBay if there is a shortage.

MS is expecting yield problems at launch. Unless this changes, don't expect their pre-order allotments to improve. Right now they are allotting an average of 8 Ones per Gamestop nation-wide while Sony is allotting an average of 24 PS4s. A 3:1 allotment difference is about what many have expected sales differences to be as well. With MS reversing course on their idiotic DRM plans, it will help their sales projections. But I think they have a lot of work to do to get gamers back in the fold. If someone tries to rape you and take away your rights, how long would it take for you to forgive? And wouldn't it take more than just a simple "I'm sorry, I won't try the same stupid shit for now" type of "apology"? MS needs to offer a SKU without Kinect at $399/$349 for starters...

Not that hard, it was only 1 X1 per Gamestop store of course they are capped. ;)
