Rumor: Xbox ONE Has Just as Many Pre-Orders As PlayStation 4

Xbox Pre-Event Shoot

According to recent statements from PR & Marketing representatives at Microsoft, Xbox ONE is around the same amount of pre-orders when comparing only the amount of PS4’s pre-ordered within the 13 counties Xbox ONE is launching in. During the PlayStation 3 era we’ve seen a similar strategy used for many years by forum jockeys to sway the ‘fanboy wars’ in the direction of the Xbox 360.

Today Microsoft has reminded gamers worldwide that although the media and public consensus may have shifted towards Sony, the Xbox brand is not going to place itself on unequal ground for statistic comparisons and will probably not bother comparing itself to PS4 including those numbers until their  new Xbox ONE product has actually launched in those products.

On the one hand this is a pretty logical and dry statement for MS to make (how would you compare points in a video game between somebody that’s not on your server and you, after all?). Of course there are some who have been reacting to this news a little differently, suggesting that Microsoft is just doing damage control with their PR speech.

The controversy doesn’t end there either. New data from Australia’s commercial sector shows the average consumer aiming for either a Nintendo Wii U, an Xbox ONE, or a Sony PlayStation 4 are significantly slanted towards the PlayStation 4. In many ways this argument of who has the higher pre-orders is a topic for shareholders and investors, not one for gamers. We encourage all gamers to play what they like regardless of how something is doing in the market. Take a look at a graph representing the data that’s being reported on below, as well as a source to more information behind it.

PlayStation 4 Specs and Release Date Confirmed Again by Official PlayStation Magazine

Today the Official PlayStation Magazine sorted out the claims from the reality when it comes to what exactly PlayStation 4 will bring to the table in terms of hardware specs and even when we can expect to get our hands on the machines ourselves. Among the data compiled OPM also mentions that Killzone: Shadow Fall is “rumored” to have run with only 1.5gb of PlayStation 4 8gb GDDR5 Memory being used, seeming to suggest far more power will come out of PlayStation 4 for years to come upon release to the market.

Beyond the features OPM mentions, we at RealGamerNewz are also excited to report that our most anticipated feature will be instant game demos (no downloading required) and in-demo purchases that will download the rest of the game for you without interrupting gameplay. If this can be pulled off gracefully then we will once and for all have an end to bad shopping experiences in digital distribution stores on gaming console devices.
