The standard edition of the PS4 is available for $399.99 while the Xbox One standard edition can also be picked up for $499.99 from Amazon. Free shipping is available but state sales tax is applicable. Now it's a question of how long they will stay in stock.
Update: And, just like that the PS4 is sold out. The Xbox One is still available though.
Update 2: And, now the Xbox One is sold out.
Availability of both consoles is expected to be limited throughout the holidays as both are in high demand. Additionally, both Sony and Microsoft are not only shipping consoles to North America but also European countries as well.
Earlier today, Sony announced that 2.1 million consoles have been sold worldwide since it launched in North America on Nov. 15 and Europe on Nov. 29. Meanwhile, the Xbox One sold more than a million consoles worldwide in the first 24 hours of its launch on Nov. 22 but Microsoft has not revealed any sales numbers following Black Friday except to say that the console is sold out at retailers.
