I think this is partly to do with that Sony told stores like Gamestop to take "Unlimited" preorders up to a certain date and Microsoft gave like...9 preorders to each store. The Gamestop near my house has the most business around compared to the other locations and they were only allotted 9 Xbox One preorders and sold out the day after the E3 announcement while they were taking PS4 preorders up until a week or 2 ago.
Both of these consoles are going to sell out and do just fine, the differences between the two are so negligible its not even worth mentioning anymore. Whats really going to make the difference is seeing if Sony can pull a OS out of its hat that's not completely barebones and of the quality of Xbox Live. I really hope they do since I already have both consoles paid off.
(I had to order my Xbox One on Amazon since Gamestop was done with their preorders for it in less than 12 hours at all my locations)
