Forums - Sales Discussion - UK: PS5 day one pre orders are 3 times that of Series X and S (UPD: and 32% higher than PS4)

Sony had more stock.

Both consoles sold out their allocation, the company with the more stock sold more, this isn't really news. The only news is that Sony has more PS5's ready?

There's only 2 races: White and 'Political Agenda'

You are still able to pre order Xbox Series S in the UK, whilst both PS5 models are sold out .

Here in Australia, Series X sold out within hours but after almost 48 hours There is plenty of Series S stock.

Both PS5 models sold out within minutes/hours and the major retailer here (EB Games) already sold out stock for early 2021.

So maybe PS5 has more stock but also it seems that demand is much higher compared to Series X/S

Oh really? interesting. 

Well it's way too early to tell but we'll see if Jim Ryan was right about reduced spec editions of a console.

Early adopters don't care about the reduced spec Series S. PS5 had more stock, so it sold more. That's how it goes.



not surprised theres still stock of the s. its a terrible deal.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

Ps5 will outsell by double



This isn't exactly relevant. Here in Greece PS5 pre orders are all sold out as well. Both the XSX and XSS have been available for pre order in major retailers for days. All retailers that I have checked still have available stock allocation for both Xbox consoles at this time.



I think COVID may help both boost their overall sales in short term at least.
Series S seems to be a hard sell, and I see the attractiveness of 1080p console reducing over time.
Have to say Sony's SKU split seems better, and I wouldn't be surprised to see MS follow it later.
If Series S really bombs I guess MS could drop it, which is bad for either devs who support it, or Series S owners if devs don't support it.

PS5 having greater demand shouldn't come as a surprise but I wonder if stock is a factor as well.
