Console battle heats up as Microsoft Xbox One goes on sale

  • Microsoft's (MSFT) Xbox One computer games console has gone on sale in 13 countries, including the U.S., U.K. and France, prompting long queues outside consumer-electronics stores.
  • The Xbox is going up against Sony's (SNE) PlayStation 4, of which over 1M were sold within 24 hours of the device's North America launch last Friday.
  • Retailers GameStop (GME) and BestBuy (BBY) have sold out of PS4s, with 2.3M GameStop customers waiting for the new players from Sony and Microsoft.

    Sony would be well served to have stock back in stores for when the Xbox is sold out.

    MSFT will announce sales on Monday or close to it for the opening day/weekend right? Bought some weekly 38 calls (exp Nov 29) at $0.21, resistance at 38, maybe a gap up on Monday to take some stops if sales are good this weekend.

    The first company to release Gaming Goggles will really help their sales and could be the defining factor.

     

    Wearing Virtual Reality Gaming Goggles allows you to turn your head and see a different perspective........those coming from the side or behind. Without Gaming Goggles, turning your head means you no longer see the HDTV display.

     

    Go read the reviews on the Oculus Rift virtual reality gaming goggles and you will read what others think. Heck, someone even hacked them in Japan for porn!!!!

     

    Oh, HIMX inside these as they provide the LCoS displays.
