Xbox One is looking strong now. 1 pre order :D.
But I think they went passed the PS4 on Amazon for their home market so it did have an effect.
Someone suggested MS was listening to the consumers... That is exactly what they didn´t how on earth could they take the flac during the entire E3 when the **** storm started well before and then revert as late as now to the inevitable! They wanted to stick with it that´s for sure but the Jimmy Fallon piece where PS 4 was for used games maybe was the final drop. Only ones that listen to the audience this time is Sony. Kind of 180 for last generation actually...
Amazon's ranking is based on what's selling every hour not the total number of sales/preorders.
The XBOX One went up to #1 because of the initial push after the DRM reversal but the total number still has the PS4 in the top spot.
I think it's just XBOX fans going back to XBOX after jumping ship to PS4.
Over on their best selling Video Game Products of the year list, however, we can see that the PS4 (which was only available for pre-order since last week) is at number two. The main competitor, the Xbox One (also only available since last week), has made it to the not-too-shabby, but lower, spot of number seven.
Microsoft was smart enough to realize people don't want DRM shoved down their throat and finally decide to abandon DRM, this will probably make it pretty close in the states but most people outside the XBOX circle of fanboys already lost faith in the XBOX One and Microsoft, I don't see the XBOX One selling more than the cheaper and more powerful PS4.
And I agree with you, Microsoft wasn't listening to gamers, it was the terrible preorders, it was the potential loss of money, it was shareholders seeing their money go down the drain if they continue with DRM, because if they was listening to gamers/consumers they would had changed it after the reveal. With big company like Microsoft money dictate decisions.
