Pre-orders figures for both Xbox One and PS4 have reached record level and fans are very curious to know how much supply Microsoft and Sony will have for and following launch of these consoles. Furthermore, fans also want to know which of the two consoles will have most impressive launch with respect to sales.
In the recent episode of Pach Attack, Michael Pachther stated that PS4 will easily outsell Xbox One at launch, although both firms will sell out whatever units they ship.
“They are going to sell as many units as they ship, and they are probably going to each ship more than a million,” said Pachter.
Pachter further talked about pre-order figures of PS4 and Xbox One. He stated: “Sony’s has already announced the PS4 has a million pre-orders, so the answer for Sony is a million the first day. All the pre-orders are going to get filled. I just went on Amazon and you can’t pre-order an Xbox One for same-day launch – they guarantee it by Dec. 31, so they are sold out of their pre-order quantities.”
“I was surprised Sony took a million pre-orders and I talked to Jack Tretton about this and he said ‘We’re going to have a lot more units behind that at launch.”
Further concluded the conversation by predicting week one sales figure of PS4 and Xbox One. He said: “I guess the first couple of weeks 1.5 million [PS4] and Xbox One probably 1 million, so 2.5 million combined, which is a lot. That’s what I think you are going to see,”
PS4 is schedule to arrive on November 15 in North America and on November 29 in Europe in 33 countries, whereas Xbox One will arrive on November 22 in 13 countries including Europe.
