Xbox One Vs PS4 stock advantage from analyst

Have you already made the crucial decision on which next-generation console to pick up this Fall? While most of you may have already pre-ordered a system, others may be waiting for more expert ‘feedback’ from critics. If that’s the case, you’ll be interested to hear what one analyst has had to say this week on the upcoming launch.

If you have already reserved a console early, you obviously won’t need to worry about stock problems closer to launch. Those who are still waiting though may be in for an anxious ride, as we’ve already seen evidence from some retailers that Xbox One and PS4 initial launch stock editions are starting to dry up.

An analyst with Baird has chimed in on the possible stock problems that may arise, claiming that Microsoft will actually have an advantage over Sony with a ratio of 2-3x units favoring the Xbox One over the PS4, in terms of stock availability. Colin Sebastian added to GamesIndustry that the reversal of Microsoft’s DRM policies has also helped the company to regain their momentum.

Having said that, the clued-up consumer is unlikely to forget the mess that went on over the E3 period, while others may simply just buy the PS4 because it is $100 cheaper. Don’t forget that this is just one analyst’s opinion though and regardless of what happens closer to launch – the real debate is going to come after launch when we get the initial sales figures in.

Do you agree that Microsoft are firmly back in favor in the public eye, or are you picking up the PS4 simply because it’s cheaper to buy?
