The PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One have been doing really well. The PS4 sold over 2.1 million worldwide in the first 18 days. The Xbox One wasn’t far behind with 2 million sold also in 18 days.

Now BuyVia, the site/app that helps consumers look for items, has revealed their stats on what console is in high demand.

Shoppers have been expressing more interest and purchases with the PlayStation 4 over the Xbox One, with a ratio of 3.3 to 1. According to the site, 150,000 users clicked on PS4 compared to Xbox One’s 45,000.

Of the shoppers who actually purchased through the site, 57% purchased the PS4 while 43% purchased the Xbox One.

With such a big difference in clicks, how come the actual purchases were narrower BuyVia CEO and co-founder Norman Fong said, “This may be due to the lack of availability of the PS4, as Xboxes were more generally more available for purchase.”

The site helps shoppers look for available items at many different retailers, and the top-selling stores through the site are Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, and GameStop.

What’s even more surprising is that in the past week, the Xbox One has been available every day, while the PS4 was only available for one day.
