    So there is a rumor going round about gamestop renegading the Xbox One

    VIDEO PROOF! Microsoft PAYS Gamestop to say...



    I think gamestop may want to have a chat with the rep involved dont you?

    Call me cynical but that sounds fake to me. Very convenient that the store number is stored in the phone under GameStop so you can't see the number called to verify it is an actual store and not just his mate pretending to be the store.

    I didn't think there were any PS4 owners yet.

    This seems fake!

    However surely nobody is surprised. In my previous life working in a Game store I've been asked to push Sony products over others. It's called business.

    You should see the bribery that medical sales personnel perform to gain the business of GPs - makes anything else I've seen look amateur.

    To be honest, if you`re gonna spend upwards of £400 on a games console common sense says you do some research when you`ve got a choice of 2 to ensure you choose the one that suits you best.

    even if totally legit, shock a company would prefer to sell you the more expensive of the two options.....

    It depends on the profit margin. Because expensive doesn't always equate to high profit margins.

    If they make $30 off the XB1 and $10 on the games, then $20 off the PS4 but $15 on the games, they would push the PS4 everyday. Then factor in profit from accessories. Right now XB1 has at least double the accessories than PS4 and will not have compatible steering wheels and the like so guaranteed more peripherals with the XB1.

    Though if the market for used is greater on XB1 games, then they'd obviously push that even more because the profit on those are much greater than new releases.

    So typically you're right, but with consoles especially you have to factor a lot more than just the console itself with regards to what the sales team will pitch to customers.

    We know MS do this, as do other companies.

    We've all seen that E3 video over at the Nintendo stand for example.

    But this seems fake. No doubt designed to get hits and subscribers for his Youtube and Twitter.

    Thankfully, here in the UK you won't get this as much due to mis-selling regulations and laws.
    Plus I like to think we're a bit more grown up in knowing what we want and researching, I mean, you don't need any cable TV to watch TV on the Xbox One!!! haha :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    Its so fake, just like all youtuber's


    But something like this would happen, its a sales pitch. Xbox costs more than PS4 and has virtually sold out. So its in there best interest to get the xbox sold out too
