Poll: Will XboxOne beat PS4's 1+Million NA Launch? (105 votes)

Nope 78%
Yep 22%

So with the news of PS4 selling over one million consoles in north america for it's launch, time place your bets. Will the XboxOne be able to match/beat it?

Depends on who managed to produce more units.

Both systems will completely sell out in the first 24 hours, so it comes down to who managed to put more systems on the shelves.

I think Sony caught ms with their pants down heading into this gen. I doubt ms was able to produce the volume of units sony produced. I am very happy with my ps4. I hope ms has a good launch.

Given what we know about pre-orders and allotments, no. Even half that amount would be a very successful launch though.

Doubtful. I feel like the X1 will be behind the Ps4 in sales all gen. I'm predicting 850,000 - 950,000 X1's to be sold.

If they release that much as launch, then they will. It will sell out just like the PS4 so it's all up to how many XBO are out there at launch.

I think Microsoft will be able to match it definitely. But remember Microsoft is launching in 13 territories next Friday, Sony wont launch in Europe until November 29th.

"This poll was focusing strictly on NA, since the Xbox brand has a stronger presence. It's pretty obvious Ps4 will crush Xbone outside NA."

No one knows anything about the unannounced pre-orders of the Xbox One though. The most we got is them saying they are equal with Sony last month.

It all depends on how many Xbox Ones were produced. The PS4 sold out, as will the Xbox One. It all depends on how many units.

If the rumors of ps4 being pre-ordered at a 2:1 ratio then no... Only some random dev said they have the same pre-order numbers which we all know is bs because of the amount of countries they dropped from the release date

its not going to be 1 million. The xbox has been a lot less aggressive in releasing xbox ones. Gamestop is only given a limit amount. Its gonna be hard to find an xbox one for awhile. id say they launch at 600,000 maybe a million worldwide.

That was an anonymous dev somewhere. No MS exec has announced numbers as far as I know.

Don't forget that Xbox One launches simultaneously in America and Europe (I know - less countries than PS but still). Plus there's a lot of high profile launch games to choose from. I don't believe the NA + EU numbers will be lesser or at most equal to PS4.

PS4 will outsell Xbone in the U.S. and worldwide.

It will sell out but I don't believe their yields were quite as high.. They were still very high though. Both these launches obliterate any previous launch and will pretty much put the Wii U in a coffin

X1 hands down owns NA. Launch day will be 1 million pre orders sold and another 500,000 piss of ps4 owners switching over.

This generation spells PS4 dominance worldwide, forget about America being the Xbox territory, lets give the current gen a year and see if its primarly an xbox territory. The system is going to crush the others in Japan, thats a given.

My guess is they sell 500-600k Xbox Ones the first day.

Not seeing it for two reasons: It's $500, and most consumers still think the XBone has DRM.

I doubt it. The pre-orders of the XBO is less then what the PS4 had.

PS4 will sell about 250-500k more units than the Xbone by the end of December 31st. Xbone won't be able to outsell the PS4 until they drop the price to $399.99.

That $100 price difference will hurt Xbone sales in the long run.

the gap will be bigger then that

@RossRichard:

Your first reason is somewhat valid. The second is most likely baseless. I doubt most consumers ever even knew about the DRM.

It depends on how much units Microsoft got to stores. Ones are sold out everywhere, so if MS produced more, they're going to sell more.

In the market where I'm at, all Best Buys had a more than 2:1 pre order lead for ps4s over xb1

No, and it doesn't need to have this numbers to have a successful launch.

400k - 500k in USA is my guess.

Absolutely not. Its launching with a higher price tag in only 13 countries of the world.

Won't even come close, 500-600k launch for north america seems about right.
