The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be launching one week apart this November. They are both expected to have shortages this year. Jonathan Marsh, a Head Technology Buyer at major UK retailer John Lewis this week, has told Trusted Reviews that he expects the Xbox One to outsell the PlayStation 4. The features he believes will appeal more to customers.
"We are expecting more interest in the Xbox One," Marsh said. "We are stocking both the PS4 and the Xbox One but if we were to back one, we are thinking that Xbox One will appeal a bit more to our customers in terms of the experience it creates."
"The software that the Xbox One launches with will really appeal to our customer base based on what we've experienced in the past," Marsh added.
The Xbox One will launch on November 22 in North America and Europe. The PlayStation 4 will launch in North America on November 15 and Europe on November 29.
