Forums - Sales Discussion - Xbox One is the hardest to find console in North America

My local GAME store had over 200 Xbones in stock and dozens of unsold Wii Us, but no PS4s or Vitas.

Same thing over here, I've seen Xbox One at Gamestop and Target several times the last few weeks while Christmas shopping.  I finally saw a PS4 yesterday, but it wasn't on shelves, a Target employee brought it straight out of the stockroom (which is located right next to the electronics dept) and to the register for a paying customer.  There were 3 Xbox Ones out on the shelves (cases) at that time.



How much was that partnership with the NFL? It was like 500 million right?

Shouldn't have sent so many to Europe. I was in Germany and France last weekend and they were loads. Don't know how many are available in the UK but they are at Game and Amazon.

MS should have concentrated on their strongest market send more consoles there. Sales would have been probably much higher.

My friend who works at Gamestop told me today that they just got shipments.

And what about the previous shipment, was it sold out?

WHat's the reality here, is the Xbone readily available in the US?


The US is Xbox One stomping grounds. If they dont win there, good luck everywhere else. If i was Microsoft I would stay focused on the U.S. as much as possible.



Microsoft has a contract with the NFL so yes. This also could have something to do with putting out publicity for American gaming. Rival brands have a lot of commercialism to overcome when it comes to the Xbox in America.

I wonder why he went with Xbone

XBone is partnered with the NFL. If Irsay is gonna make a big PR move like that, it wouldn't bode well if he got them PS4s
