The consoles are currently top of Amazon's PC and Gaming chart, despite the lack of release dates and pricing information.

"It's not clear yet which of the two will have the edge when they launch later this year," Amazon's Xavier Garambois explained.

"What's certain, though, is that fans are already excited about how the next generation of consoles will change the world of gaming and home entertainment," he added.

Meanwhile, Ketu Patel, head of video games at Amazon, said: "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.
