How come there isn't a high demand for the X1?

It's crazy. It's a new console. Does price have something to do with it? All these Targets have them in stock.

On the other hand, the demand for PS4 exceeds what the Wii even was. Seems like everybody I've talked to always says they're getting a a PS4.

Maybe some people are smart and realize it is a mistake to buy one. I have no idea why people have no problem with this "online activation" thing with every game. Sure it might not be bad now but in 8-12 years when they shut-down the activati on servers after stopping support for the console any new copies of games will be as useful as coasters.

Even if I did want one I wouldn't make the terrible choice to buy one at launch and be a guinea pig for all the defects new consoles have these days(just look at all the issues the Xbone and PS4 are having) not to mention there aren't going to be any good games out for the Xbone(or PS4) unless you like FPS games which I don't.

I really wanted a Xbone for Dead Rising 3 and other eventual exclusives but the whole activation thing killed it for me. I already have a Wii U and plan on getting the PS4 in a year to a year and a half so I not a fanboy for any console.

1) Cost more than every other console

2) is weaker than a PC or ps4

3) had a lot of bad press early on

4) has never been "big" outside the U.S.

5) lackluster launch titles

6) as said itt, most people have a cable box already

7) forced kinect

Pick one?

in 13 different regions. This really isn't some incredible feat. My store has more than 10 Xbox One's and we are sold out of PS4's with people constantly calling about them.

Sure it is. When was the last time a console sold 1 million+ 24 hours whether it was in one or 200 countries? Both consoles are doing extremely well so far.

Yo, news flash, they are out of stock everywhere.
Nice attempt. There is a high demand for them.

On ebay they are averaging about $200 more than retail. Thats $100 more than the PS4 is going for.

Also, On day one, at one point there were about 15K+ PS4s listed on ebay.

Xbox one only has around 9K.

So a lot more people must actually be keeping the xbox ones instead of selling them.

I've called every store in 100 miles from me, no stock.

So yea, all of these random targets have no stock.

That's only worldwide, compared to PS4's 1,000,000+ in just North America (US and Canada) alone. The demand just seems so low for it being worldwide.
