Amazon UK: Xbox One pre-orders pass PS4 after DRM u-turn

Thursday, 20 June 2013 13:18 GMT By Dave Cook

Xbox One has overtaken PS4 in Amazon UK’s pre-order charts after Microsoft announced it was ditching its DRM policy last night.

If you missed Microsoft’s Xbox One announcement and following statement from Don Mattrick, you can read what all of this means here.

MCV reports that the change in policy seems to have swung Amazon pre-orders back in Microsoft’s favour.

The Xbox One ‘Day One’ edition is currently second in Amazon’s charts, behind PS3 hit The Last of Us. At the time of writing, PS4 pre-orders sit at third.

Have you pre-ordered either console? Let us know below.

    It’s cos of all the chavs – they seem to be addicted to xbox; I guess because unlike ps3 you can pirate on it? Leaves them enough money for their beer and fags and teenage pregnancies.

    @11 Not really, the PS4 is considerably more powerful than the Xbox One (and doesn’t come with the gimmicky Kinect – I have the original Kinect and only ever use it for Forza 4 head-tracking), and with MS reversing their DRM and the gamers’ always-online guarantee for publishers there will be less games that take advantage of this mysterious “cloud”.

    @12 Are you sure about that now? Because the only guy who did hack the ps3 got into an awful lot of trouble, and sony quickly made their security even tighter – the console has never been cracked to the best of my knowledge. There’s no way to mod or chip it. You can’t copy discs and use them, there’s no sd card mechanism or hdd soft crack.

    @16 we can disagree on the “power” of each system, its just how it is :) Sony’s last system was more powerful by about the same amount and both consoles were neck and neck. What decided it for me was the games MS showed at E3 were better in my personal opinion. The PS4 pulled the greatest PR coup in history and I dont think anyone will say the latter was not true.

    Its a win win now for the consumer and the gamer. No restrictions really. Price point seems to be the only barrier left and I do not think MS will lower the price on the new unit..but I could be wrong.

  28. sg1974

    @22 The PS3 is more powerful than the 360 but it was designed by the hardware guys without any thought for (let alone consultation with) the software guys, and was evil to code for. Even their own in-house devs struggled at first and took a year or two to start teasing the best out of it. This time however, they are both X86. PS4 has much more RAM for games, though the One does have that infinite power of the cloud thingy with 300,000 servers that don’t actually exist (it’s probably just 3,000 dedicated servers according to several commentators).

    I think xbx1 is a good price. The system plus kinect (which my kids absolutely love) for only $100 more than ps4. Current gen kinect retails for $150, so this upgraded kinect at this price point is perfect for me.

    @28 true, but, once they got their chops around how to program for it, was there really any difference between the two..not really..both systems had a few stunning games, but my comment was really towards the DRM and 24hr check in..basically both consoles are now on even ground. Albeit the 100 difference.

    @33 I find it amusing that Sony fanboys settle with the fact that PS3 barely sold more than the Xbox 360.

Who knows what things will look like a year from now…

    Wow, it’s amazing how quickly the tides shift. I wonder how sony will combat the sudden U-turn. Announce all of their exclusives they seem to have in development? A lot of the guys buying the xbox one now are basing their decision off of E3. Microsoft showed their hand and now it’s sony’s turn. You don’y really think that E3 conference is all they have do you? We all know that all of sony’s studios are making a ps4 game. Now it’s just a matter of when they show.

    #40 2 years ago
  41. sg1974

    @38 Pretty much. 360 is in the lead in the US and UK, PS3 is in the lead everywhere else. Globally, the PS3 is at about 77 million and the 360 is at about 76 million – though the latter figure does include retail-replaced RRoDs for which MS has always refused to provide a figure. (Most independent estimates say at least a million failed 360s were replaced at the point of sale, so counted as sales – as opposed to units replaced in the factory-return programme, which aren’t counted in the data).

    Its just one on those silly myths. I live in the Netherlands and me most of my friend and co-workers play on XBox. I’ve also got a PS3, but most gaming is on the XBox. Not saying Xbox is dominant here, but the difference is not that huge. Plus play station mutiplayer was free, which is really what gave Sony such advantage. But that’s gone now at least for PS4.

    @42 “My mates play this” doesn’t really cut it against the manufacturers’ sales data. And I didn’t say the difference was huge, I said the PS3 is ahead outside of the two markets where it is accepted the 360 leads (I note you had no quarrel with the latter part of that statement).

    “Plus play station mutiplayer was free, which is really what gave Sony such advantage.”

    I don’t understand the point you are making here. Isn’t it free in the US and UK too? And isn’t the 360 cheaper in every market? Why didn’t that give MS an advantage everywhere?

    Isn’t this misleading? PS4s on Amazon are split into different SKUs: the Launch and Standard Editions, and various bundles with Killzone, Battlefield 4, Watch Dogs, or Knack, all of which are on the bestsellers list. There is only one Xbox One SKU as far as I know. PlayStation 4 orders combined likely outsell the Xbox One by a large margin.

  57. Iliad

    @22 True, this gen is neck and neck. The PS4 is clearly superior if you compare the specs (i.e. DDR5 for example), plus it’s far more developer friendly this time around – Sony obviously learnt their lesson.

    You can’t deny that some first-party games on PS3 are generally more visually stunning than anything released on the 360. Just look at what Naughty Dog achieved with the Uncharted series, and more recently the frankly amazing The Last of Us. MS on the 360 hasn’t come close to that level of visual excellence.

    I do actually prefer my 360 over my PS3, but I’m more impressed with the PS4 (pre-ordered one) and expect third-party games (such as Battlefield 4 with its scaleable Frostbite 3 engine) to run better on the PS4, simply because its architecture is apparently closer to the PC than the Xbox One.

    I’ll be getting an Xbox One next year for sure (because of the DRM reversal etc), but only because of Forza 5 – MS didn’t show anything else that I particularly had to have, nor did Sony really, although both had games I would buy, but not necessarily buy a console just to play. For me, all the most interesting games were third-party.

    @57…I guess we can disagree what visually stunning is as I prefer multiplayer than single player. I give kudos to those studios who did crank out some cool games as Sony’s 1st party devs, I cannot deny a good game when i see and play one. Those 2 studios are indeed top notch and I wouldn’t expect anything less than stellar from them.

    Completely misleading. Unless everyone suddenly dropped their PS4 reserve for a Xbone, and I doubt that, PS4 with its multiple skus and already filled launch reserve would still be ahead easily.

    #62 2 years ago
  63. NiceFellow

    I normally hesitate to critise others buying choices – but if this does mean a lot of people getting XBone because of the reversal they’re being pretty short sighted.

    If the console sells enough it’s obvious everything that was complained about now will come down the pipe. The entire infrastructure is in place and only a day one OS update is switching off various bits of it as a rush job response.

    I don’t want the console to fail but if people were serious about not buying due to the DRM they need to really decide if they want to potentially back a simple delay of such features or send a clear message.

    My view is simple – I want to see PS4 sell better to the extent the message is loud and clear : don’t do this. MS can survive plenty fine on a dip in sales and they need a PS3/Sony style bloody nose for this IMHO.

    I’m quite amazed people are really that naive they think the whole thing has been permanently reversed.

    Anyway, this U-turn won’t change anything : they already lost.

    Ok whoever wrote this article is a complete amateur, the amazon sales chart is updated hourly, the ps4 stand alone release day model already sold out, which is why it is at 10 saying currently unavailable, so how coukd it have sold any in that last hour, only ps4 bundled are left to pre order, poor article, no research whatsoever seen something and jumped to a conclusion

    The xbone has one sku, Sony has like 7, add up all of the Sony sku’s instead of just looking at the release date one and it will pull far ahead.

    This article is quite misleading. XBox has overtaken PS4 on the hourly best-sellers which is just showing recent trends. If you look at best sellers of 2013 (so far) you notice that XBoxis placed at #70. PS4 on the other hand is placed I believe at #4 for best seller so far this year

    MS better hope the “most wished for” chart flips real soon too. On Amazon UK right now:

    1. PS4 console
    2. The Last of US (PS4)
    3. XBOne console
    4. Watchdogs (PS4)
    5. Destiny (PS4)
    6. Animal Crossing
    7. Battlefield 4 (PS4)
    8. FIFA 14 (PS4)
    9. InFamous Second Son (PS4)
    10. GTAV (PS4)
    11. Killzone Shadow Fall (PS4)
    12. DS4 controller (PS4)
    13. Assassin’s Creed 4 (PS4)
    14. CoD Ghosts (PS4)
    15. Tom Clancy’s The Division (PS4)
    16. Batman Arkham Origins (PS4)
    17. GTAV (360)
    18. CoD Ghosts (One)
    19. Forza 5 (One)
    20. Beyond Two Souls (PS4)

    Ouch. No wonder Don got called into Steve’s office. That’s data that can bring down a CEO.

    Well well well. Look at how the consoles are doing in the US, over 24 hours since the change in DRM policy. Amazon US preorder chart:

    1. XBox One console – Day 1 Edition
    2. PS4 console – Standard Edition
    3. PS4 console – Launch Edition
    4. PS4 console – Watch Dogs Launch Day Bundle
    5. PS4 console – Battlefield 4 Launch Day Bundle

    7. PS4 console – Killzone Launch Day Bundle

    21. PS4 console – Knack Launch Day Bundle

    28. XBox One console – Standard Edition

    I’m willing to bet that #2-5+7+21 add up to more than #1+28. A lot more.

    Anecdotal I know, but MS probably needs to do much more to win all their customers back – and a bunch of new ones.

    @sg1974

    Not to mention if you look at Best Sellers for 2013 for the US. The original Launch Edition for the PS4 is at number 2, while the Xbox One Day One Edition is at 7. So the Launch Edition for the PS4 has more pre-orders than Xbox One by itself. That is not including all of the Standard Edition, and all of the Individual Bundle editions.

    10th?

    Nope..

    25th?

    Nope..

    70TH PLACE. Yes it’s in fucking 70th place.

    @SG – Unfortunately for you and all the other paid Sony shills there is a most egregious error in your first list that paints a VERY different picture when corrected (in before G1GA gets back from the shops):

    - Beyond: Two Souls is for PS3 only. No PS4 version.

    And suddenly it’s not looking so good for the PS4 now, is it bro?

    I find it disturbing that people want to buy a piece of hardware that has motion censors, facial recognition software, was previous supposed to be “listening” to voice commands, and had to be on the internet daily. I know Xbox has changed its policies, but they are subject to change.

    I would want to purchase something that can conceivably record me playing a game, and then possible load it up to the internet for the government to do as it pleases with the footage. So Tim who is Ohio just playing some kinnect game possibly could end up being in footage of a terrorist attack in New York in minutes. So then gamers would be seen as threats to America. I know it sounds far fetched but remember that anonymous started out 4chan, and that Snowden liked to play video games and had anime avatar. Too me this sounds like a spying device used to track unsuspecting gamers.

    @80 – I find it disturbing that people think Microsoft’s master plan is to record some out of shape 20 something year old in a crappy basement play video games.
