The US arm of Toys R Us has this year introduced a ‘Fabulous 15' festive shopping list, but only one next-gen console made the cut.
Kotaku reports that while a total of 36 products are included in the Toys R Us Hot Holiday Toys list, only 15 are selected for bells-and-whistles Fabulous 15 billing.Xbox One (and Skylanders) is included in this select group whereas PS4 has to settle for a spot lower down.
"The 36 products featured on the Toys R Us Holiday Hot Toy List are carefully selected after year-long consultations with our global merchants and their thorough review of all the new toy introductions for the year,” PR rep Nicole Hayes stated.
We start the selection process with thousands of hot toy contenders, which we narrow down to 36 items – each of which is designated with that honour because they are truly HOT.
The two new videogame platform introductions for fall made the prestigious list, with Xbox One on the Fabulous 15 and PlayStation4 on the expanded list of 36 products named to this year's Toys'R'Us Hot Toy List. We anticipate that both items will be at the top of kids' wish lists this year."
