GameStop: Twice as many gamers are anticipating PS4 than Xbox One

GameStop hasn’t revealed details on pre-order sales for the upcoming PlayStation 4 and Xbox One; however, they did reveal the numbers for the “first-to-know” lists. These lists keep PowerUp Rewards program members updated on the respective next-gen consoles like pre-orders, deals and news. PlayStation 4 is leading with 1.5 million subscribers. The Xbox One received 700,000 subscribers. This is a significant program, since it contains consumers who are heavy spenders.

We have good news for both consoles though. According to GameStop CEO Paul Raines during the post-earnings investor call yesterday, it will be “the largest console launch in history.”

GameStop president Tony Bartel reconfirms that the Xbox One and PS4 will have “much stronger” launches than their predecessors.

As for who will come out on top, we’ll just have to wait until the systems launch. Sony has already announced the November 15th release date of the PS4 for the US. Microsoft still needs to announce theirs.
