One question on quality might be related to the question of where these items are manufactured? I would submit that an item manufactured in a Chinese factory where people have no real choice but to be there might have more quality problems than an item produced in a workplace where people would like to be by their own choice.

Yes, the PS4 was released only two weeks prior, but the XBox One came out the week after that. I don't think that played much of a role for either console. PS4 sold much better on initial release, so one possible explanation could be that XBox One buyers were more inclined to wait for the Black Friday deals than PS4 buyers. This makes a lot of sense when you consider the XBox One costs $100 more.

@JP I agree. If you read the list the author put together on the top 20 items it is clear there is a lot of fanboy bias bleeding through. The 2DS, PS3, & PS4 all get snarky comments while the Xbox 360 and Xbox One get painted very positively. It's clear the author is an Xbox fanboy and his bias is there for everyone to read in the article. To the author: Bias has no place in reporting, leave it for the comments section! Please re-write your articles.

Where do you get the idea that Chinese factory workers are forced to work in factories? This sounds like the garbage that U.S. unions have been spouting for many years.

I have personally visited 2 different Chinese factories and spoke to a woman from Hong Kong who purposely infiltrated a Chinese factory to learn how bad it was. The truth? She said she was surprised by how good the conditions were (compared to the Chinese villages where these workers came from). Chinese are begging for these jobs... BY CHOICE. Why? Because the alternative for nearly all of them is to be back in the village struggling to grow or earn enough to eat (and largely failing). The factories provide dramatically higher wages and life style than these people can get anywhere else in China. If there is a product quality difference, it has nothing to do with the quality of the workers. (The quality of the parts used, perhaps, but even that is rapidly changing.)
