This doesn't surprise me at all. I bought both systems at launch and the XBOX One's after Christmas were stacking up on the shelves, I've only seen one store so far with PS4's in stock while I was shopping there. It was a Walmart on Christmas Eve, been sold out every trip since.
I live in the Philadelphia area, obviously not rural in the slightest.
Ryse got a 60 out of 100, and users gave it an even lower score.
Dead Rising 3 was just as bad according to user reviews.
Forza has the worse discrepancy amount these listed games. Critic reviews was an 80, but user reviews was a 5.4?
None of these games are worth piss. Titanfall is up in the air, and seriously Plants vs Zombies? Really, a mobile game? Have we gone that low to justify the purchase of one of these systems?
The last time Sony said they were short on supplies for PS3, my father in-law made a delivery run to a Sony warehouse, from floor to ceiling full of them...Most likely the same thing this time around.
Playstations aren't in short supply, games that make want a Playstation are.
Same with the Xbone.
No compelling reason to purchase yet.
