"New data shows that the PS4 was the for more popular console compared to the Xbox One.Market research firm Terapeak collated data of sales from eBay during each consoleís respective launch weekends on eBay. The PS4 sold 21,309 units compared to the 11,992 units sold for the Xbox One.

Itís noted that the PS4's data only includes North America while the Xbox Oneís data includes that of 13 countries.Terapeakís analysis isnít official, but it is interesting. Officially, Sony has announced the PS4 has sold over 2.1 million units worldwide while Microsoft has said the Xbox One has sold over 1 million units so far."

Any idea on how this could happen? Did MS not produce enough consoles for launch?

The demand for the PS4 is just much higher, but you can't point it out on the board because you'll be accused of trolling.

So more idiots spent more than retail price for the PS4?

You can keep them ;)

Dear fanboys; get over yourselves. Video games are not the most important thing in life.

CEX, a 2nd hand store has more ps4s than x1s too, but you gotta admit both consoles are doing very well but this thread is just another willy waving contest.

The reason this is happening is because microsoft is better at meeting demand then sony is so most people can find them in stores for this reason

lol isnt this bad for the PS4?
Seems to imply that PS4s are in shorter supply so people are resorting to eBay to find them.

They're in shorter supply because of larger demand and huge amounts of sales. The fact that they have way more sales shows that it's not bad for the ps4. They get sold right as they go in.
