The PS4 is being sold at cost, meaning retailers are selling it for the same amount that they pay for it. The Xbox One is being sold for a nearly $40 profit, meaning retailers are more likely to order or ask for more. Its simple business. The more money you stand to make from a product, the more of that product you will try to acquire. That being said, all Walmarts in Central Ohio are sold out of both systems, with X1's on order and PS4's on an order freeze.

I work at Walmart and am privy to how much it costs us to purchase both consoles. The PS4 is 399 for us to buy and that's the price we sell it at. No money made. The X1 costs 463.xx for us to buy and we sell it at 499, 36.xx profit.

Would pics suffice? I can take a picture of the in stock screen of our handheld scanners that show the sell price and the profit we make from selling it.
