PS4 in Higher Demand than Xbox One 3.3 to 1

BuyVia.com Site/App Analytics Find Users Favor Sony System over Microsoft

by 3.3 to 1



SAN MATEO, CA – Users nationwide are expressing  more interest and

purchases of Sony’s PS4 gaming  console over Microsoft’s Xbox One by a

ratio of 3.3 to 1, according to a new analysis from BuyVia

(www.buyvia.com), the first website and mobile app that combines in-store

and online shopping across smart phones, tablets and laptops.


The demand analytics findings were based on traffic to the BuyVia website

and app from Monday, November 25 (the first Monday following the launch of

the Xbox) through the week ending Saturday, December 14.


Overall 150,000 users clicked on PS4 as opposed to Xbox, which had

45,000 users clicking. This yielded a ratio of 3.3 to1 in favor of PS4

demand over the Xbox One.


Of the people who clicked through and purchased the consoles, 43% of

users purchased the Xbox One as opposed to 57% of BuyVia users who

purchased the PS4.  “This may be due to the lack of availability of the

PS4, as Xboxes were more generally more available for purchase,” said

Norman Fong, CEO and co-founder of BuyVia.


People who purchased the Xbox One and the PS4 purchased them primarily

at retailers Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, and GameStop.  Most users were

non-discriminatory in choosing one retailer over the other, as many went

after the first available consoles in stock.


Over the last week, BuyVia has found Xbox One consoles to be available

every day, while the PS4 has only been available for one day.
