Maybe. The part about signing up with retailers for updates suggests that maybe folks will be able to nab preorders before November 10. At the very least, it sounds like they're trying to make sure that there are some units in stores for people who didn't preorder to purchase when the consoles actually go on sale.
Both are great threads and I'll just reiterate what I said way earlier in these discussions once we got specs for both machines - the differences between the two will end up being remarkably minimal when all is said and done. This isn't the type of power gulf that we saw between the Pro and X (something like 37%), we're talking more in the range of single digit percentages at best and in the end that means that we're going to see demonstrably less differences in the third party games we play on the platforms. Digital Foundry may be far less interesting in this new generation.:)
That reads like they sold out of their entire initial allocation until launch day if I'm reading that right? Interesting as Sony posted they would have more available for preorder in the coming days/weeks. I really do think that 11 million number from Sony wasn't a joke.
My Best Buy rewards members, there's a pretty good deal on pre-orders of Halo Infinite. Steelbook plust a $10 reward. Statue option too for you suckers collectors.
