With the exception of four retailers, the PlayStation 4 has ranked first as the console of choice across the globe in most pre-order sales. The news is generally going to cause a bit of a ruckus within the community due to the lopsided presentation, but given all the polls, internet communities and feedback, can anyone really say they're surprised?

Following up on Amazon's outing of the PS4 stealing the top spot on the charts from the Xbox One, Dual Shockers did a lot of information legwork to compile a list of retailers across the globe that will carry both the Xbox One and PS4 when they ship this fall. The list also showcases a ranking of where each console stands on the retailer charts.

The list is an exhaustive thing to look at but it's highly informative. Moreover, not all of the retailer listings are in numbered order. So just so you have an idea of what's what for the unlisted retailers: The Xbox One outpaced the PlayStation 4 in pre-orders at GameStop in Germany. In the UK, the Xbox One also edges out the PlayStation 4 in pre-orders at GameStop as well, and in Spain the Xbox One inched out the PlayStation 4 in pre-orders at GameStop.

On the other side of the coin, the PS4 outpaced the XB1 at Rakuten in the United Kingdom, and the PS4 also outpaced the XB1 on Amazon in Spain. In Italy, the PS4 trumped the XB1 at both Amazon and Gamestop, as well as at EB Games in Australia and New Zealand.

It would only be fair to include pre-orders for Japan, one of the biggest regions for gaming, but given certain region discrepancies for a certain console, that won't be possible.

The rest of the lists from various retailers can be viewed below, or you can check out DualShocker's complete rundown of which product was edging out which product with their very informative notes. Despite some people calling the numbers fluff, it looks like there may actually be some sales correlation between the polls IGN, Gamespot and Amazon ran and the pre-orders that are taking place.
