    XD PS4 Grabs 95% Of Consumer Votes After Amazon Ends Poll Early



    With nearly 95% of the vote (approximately 94.7% in favor of the PS4) Amazon has decided to end the user poll between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 early. Back on June 13th the marketplace giant ran a Facebook poll to see which one consumers were more interested in between Microsoft and Sony's consoles and it appears that gamers have spoken quite loudly with their Facebook voting.

    For now, the final numbers read 38984 votes in favor of the PlayStation 4 with only 2162 votes in favor of the Xbox One. Does anyone know how many employees work at Microsoft?

    Originally, the poll was supposed to run for a week and end on June 20th, giving gamers plenty of time to cast a vote and comment in favor of the console they were most looking forward to. Unfortunately, Amazon cut the poll short after there was a massive and clearly lopsided showing of favoritism for one product over the other. This could also be an easy indicator for companies to use as a gauge for the potential purchasing habits of gamers and casual consumers alike for this fall.

    Thinking about this logically, there's no real reason as to why Amazon would have wanted to end the poll early given all the free publicity and traffic they were receiving from the unbiased and very public escapade. That is, unless things were cut short, potentially, under coercion from upper management?



    In reality, the poll was definitely generating a lot of media buzz, especially from gaming outlets who covered the lopsided-as-a-poorly-done-boob-job poll, with an obvious reporting slant given in favor of Sony's upcoming PlayStation 4. It's not unlikely that the whole event could have incurred the intervention of reputation management agents, perhaps?

    Personally, I really wanted to see what the voting habits were going to be like at the end of the official session between both consoles, but I guess we'll have to settle for what they ended up with.

    Maybe the good folks at Forbes or Polygon can ping Amazon and find out what really happened? If I were a betting man I'd say a very nonsensical and boilerplate PR response is what we'll all end up with. Such is the fate of these kind of events during the propaganda-fueled warfare of corporate giants.

    Voting means absolutely nothing. I can easily go and register and vote up the PS4. This is just useless information to simply attack Microsoft when it means nothing. The Xbox One will still sell better than the PS4 no matter what. I can't stand the Xbox One's name, new policies, all in one useless features and capabilities to offer me sports, sports, tv, music, movies, sports, but I'll probably still end up giving in and buying it eventually because of all the good games they secured with their infinite budget to throw at developers.

    You forgot the mandatory Kinect shit aswell. Anyway MS already stated they won't change. Thy are too greedy.

    Cant believe people are still buying and defending the spybox one,

    I hope they crash and burn. I hate them so much right now and this is coming from a guy who jumped from ps2 to 360 since launch and has been with them for 6 years.

    I have been with 360 since day 1 of it's release. The direction they are heading really disappoints me. Yes i have internet and i can say the direction doesn't affect me but. I tend to go on family visits and i tend to bring my console. My relatives don't have internet and i play my games offline. When i do visit i let my cousins's kids play with my console while i hang with my cousins. With xbox one i can't do that. What's worse is that if i go ps4 i have to start from 0. I did so much with my profile and games for 360 and all of that doesn't matter anymore. sigh.
