PS5 probably has more stock. Maybe its due to it releasing 9 days later in the UK than the Xbox? Both consoles sold out and the fact that they're outpacing 2013 numbers means were in for a big holiday season.

You can still pre order Series S

PS demand is probably higher then. 



Makes sense, but at the same time Xbox Series are "crushing" the xbox one so its probably whatever

Has there been any info after ps5 vs ps4?

Welcome back Sh1nn. The last 2 years must've been torture for you.

This is the equivalent of Nintendo getting more pre-orders than Sony in Japan. Hardly surprising.

One night of #PlayStation5 pre orders are currently tracking 32% higher than that of PS4 full day one numbers.



No stopping this beast. PS5 coming of the strength of the PS4 will make it even bigger. Those thinking gen 7 is coming back are in for a bad couple of years.



Well, not really surprising. PS4 sold about 3 times more than Xbox One in UK. So this factor should continue with next gen.



As long as Sony won't release their games on PC day one it's no surprise that PS consoles will sell more. But that does obviously not mean that Xbox will be smaller as a whole especially when people see the value of Gamepass increasing more and more.

But it does look as if MS should produce some more Series X instead of Series S consoles this year. Early adopters obviously prefer the best version of a console and they could have many more preorders (Sony as well obviously) with more Series X available.
