Who knows which console has sold better recently (and honestly, I question why any true gamer would care....).

But here is a question for all who are saying truly stupid things like, "LOL! The Xbone is flopping hard!!!!" and "PS4 is never available in stock....Xbones are always in stock!!!!" :

How do you know that any systems in stock are because of disinterest by the public? Why isn't it possible that Microsoft is simply better at marketing and maintaining their supply chains?

Beyond that, I've seen WAY more PS4's in stock compared to Xbox One units....Using Sony Fanboy logic, I'm supposed to automatically assume that the PS4 isn't selling well?

That just doesn't make sense to me...

You were super effective dodging the question in the last thread asking for your zip code so we can find out where all these consoles are available at.

MS is better at maintaining supply. Also, X1 is only in 13 countries.

How many countries is PS4 in?

And you were super effective dodging explaining how availability is an indicator of sales. Having none in stock can mean something is selling well. It can also mean that stores aren't getting any from the manufacturer.

We know they're better at maintaining supplies because their marketing department hasn't had to release a PSA saying "crap, sorry. We're going to be critically short of stock for the foreseeable future. So much so, we aren't going to bother sending stock to our home territory until two or three months after the console has been out." Like Sony has.

That'd be like a pro sports team in its first year of operation playing every game on the road because they don't have an arena built...

Can you show me where you specifically asked me this or anyone asked me this please? You can't? Didnt think so.

The source of most of your information seems to be your butt.

It's funny that on this board there are no PS4 to be seen, but on the PS4 board, there are posters saying they are seeing them everywhere. If you love your PS4 so much, then get off the board and go play the damn thing.

I can't believe PS4 didn't release in Japan. That's so weird. I wonder what Japanese people think? Or if they even care...

Sony realizes that even for them Japan is not a major market. Console sales in Japan are rapidly declining. Japan is very much a handheld market.
