Pre-orders for Xbox One and PS4 nearly tied on Amazon UK

Xbox One and PS4 are at a dead heat for pre-orders on Amazon U.K. The retail giant says Microsoft's console leads Sony's by 2.3 percent, but it's still anyone's game.

Xbox One is enjoying 20 percent more pre-orders than Xbox 360 did at the same point eight years ago. Neither of the two next-gen systems have a specific release date set, though Microsoft revealed earlier today that Xbox One will ship sometime in November and sell for $500/£430.

“Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are set to have a huge impact, not just in terms of cutting edge games but also as part of the way in which families enjoy home entertainment," Amazon UK Head of Video Games Ketu Patel said in a statement. "It will be fascinating to see how the battle between the two console giants develops over the coming months--the fight for who’s going to be the must-have Christmas present is only just beginning."

Stay tuned to GamesRadar's E3 2013 coverage through the day as Sony and others tip off their next year in games.

    The same idiots who are going to buy the XCrap ONE are the same idiots who do not care about privacy, the goverments spying on you, want us to have no voice in anything and take away our gun rights, How can anyone buy something that invades your privacy and insults the intelligence like the XCrap One?

    It is the good natured men that do not voice their opinion. The people who hate it are the loudest of the bunch, and then of course there are bandwagoners. Frankly, specwise it looks amazing.

    You mean overreactions of a small group of people on the internet do not reflect the opinions of the mass public? Well color me surprised.

    That makes me dissapointed, did they forgot everything terrible about the console itself?

    Heh, yeah. Especially since the 360 broke down like crazy and you had to get a new console or you just get refurbished versions as replacements.
