Recently, Aaron Greenberg posted a tweet saying the following:

Now, while this is TECHNICALLY TRUE, there is still underlying facts behind the matter that Microsoft and their supporters are ignoring. Firstly, the preorders that were available at Gamestop were LIMITED. EXTREMELY LIMITED. I’ve called a good number of Gamestops in the Dallas & Fort Worth area, and I was able to get some good information (from those who were willing to divulge info) about the Xbox One preorders. Here’s what I found out:

  • Xbox One available preorders were extremely limited from the very beginning.
  • Stores had preorder limitations as low as 16, and as high as 25.
  • Xbox One preorders are significantly less than the PS4 preorders
  • Within a single district, they only had around 100 preorders (take this anyway you want, I do not know how many Gamestops are within his district)
  • Many acknowledged that this was merely a marketing ploy by Microsoft (which I agree with) to cause “Preorder PR” & “Preorder Panic”

If any of you doubt this, I’m sure you could call a few Gamestops in your local area and get the same information. All in all, Microsoft’s strategy to LIMIT the available preorders to get them to sell out fast, DID turn into a good PR tactic for them. Not only that, but for those who are uninformed and blinded by ze fanboi goggles, they take this sort of information of “sold out” and Microsoft’s message for face value without even inquiring about the finer details behind it. Some of these very same people will tell others to quickly preorder their Xbox One, before its too late; and its that hyped up “sold out” demand that Microsoft wants to infect consumers right now. I’m not a Microsoft supporter in anyway, but I gotta say, Microsoft sure knows how to spin their own good news!

    LOL this guy.

  3. That is pretty messed up. Sick seeing how i hear Gamestop allotted 30+ unites per store.

  4. No it’s not. XBox One is currently in high demand. Gamers love our specs, and our exclusive games like MGS V: Stealth Horse and Call of Duty: Ghost Dog. Kinect controls is the future. Who wouldn’t want to own an Xbox one? It has incredible and realistic graphics.

  5. Preorders are through the roof!! (If you live in an attic)

    I can’t wait for actual numbers to come out for these two systems so we can move on with our lives. Who am I kidding, it doesn’t matter who sells more, fanboys will be fanboys.

    This article was written by BlackBuster just look at who posted the article. What is said here is a fraud. I hope that somebody looks into that.

      It’s not a fraud if he actually called a local Gamestop. But I guess you won’t listen to the truth cause you’re an Xbot.
