Analyst: PS4 Projected to Outsell Xbox 720 2-to-1

The internet has been overloaded with both Xbox 720 and PS4 news in the past few weeks and an online retailer is now weighing in on the competition between the two systems., a leading money saving website in the U.S. is now making the bold prediction that the PlayStation 4 console will outsell the Xbox 720 2-to-1 once they are released. This prediction derived from pre-order searches made on the site.
Searches for the PS4 outnumber those for the Xbox 720 2-to-1. In the last two months, there have been more than 300,000 unique searches for the PS4, in comparison to the 140,000 searches for the Xbox 720 console, according to the site's data.

2-1 is actually a lot, if Sony can do this, I will have to give them ultimate credit. I doubt it would be 2-1 though but I think 1-1.5 or somewhere around there. I would have to see the 720 and other peoples reactions to guess though

Guess we'll have to wait and see, I'm very excited for E3 to see these consoles and games

edit @ below: lol @ the picture

I agree, this E3 is going to be set as one of the greatest and most memorable E3's of all time

Oddly enough this is the first time I've heard of CouponCodes4u. CouponCodes4u is basing this assumption of site searches, so I would take this with a grain of salt tbh.

I believe the PS4 and 720 will be neck and neck when it comes to sales. Obviously in some areas like Japan the PS4 will outsell the 720.

"but I think 1-1.5 or somewhere around there"

That's about what PS3 outsold the 360 this gen, nextgen should be better since they have less to go up against. Not as hard to make games, price gap to be minimal, releasing same time if not before, nifty features like no load times and sharing etc etc

OmegaSlayer1867d ago

I'm a HUGE Sony fanboy and I won't even remotely think it's possible that Sony will outperform Microsoft 2 to 1 in US.
No chance in hell.

And wasn't the PS3 said to outsell the 360 at 3-1?

iGAM3R-VIII1868d ago

Who, What, When, Where, and Why.

PSVita1868d ago

Im not sure if it was 3-1 but It outsell the Xbox from day 1. If you take into account the ps3 released a 1yr- 1 1/2yr after the Xbox 360 and has now passed it.

Evil_Ryu1868d ago

quit speaking out of your ass your making yourself look like a jackass

thechosenone1868d ago (Edited 1868d ago )

Yeah PSVita quit spewing your facts for a min and listen to reason. Just because the PS3 started selling a year and a half later then the xbox360 and was more expensive to boot and still managed to outsell the 360 worldwide means absolutely nothing so just quit it!

iGAM3R-VIII1868d ago (Edited 1868d ago )

@Evil_Ryu WOAH CHILL no need to say that he is wrong because he isn't wrong.

@thechosenone "We all know that US sales are all that count"

How and why, that makes no sense, I just want to know how you have 4 bubbles when you talk trash. What you said makes no sense. So you are saying the US is more superior than the EU and Japan for gaming?Think again. PSVita was right and I do agree with what he said because he is right. And it does mean something. It could mean that there was a higher demand for the PS3. IDK what the sales are like now wether the Xbox 2360 sold more or not, the point is that EU sales count as well, and so does every other country.

Urusernamesucks1868d ago

Had it launch the exact same year as the xbox would of ended up Alot worse. All those unprepared games, hardware and online services would of collapse had it not been for sonny being smart enough to delay for a year.You would of ended up with a console disaster worser than rrod.

So that year head start Bs Doesn't meant shit since the ps3 would of lost Either way. Now whose spewing facts here?

Go ahead Disagree if it makes ya feel better.

thechosenone1868d ago (Edited 1868d ago )


oh lord, apparently you didn't get it so here... /s. lol Not to mention that my avatar say PS4Life. heh

iGAM3R-VIII1868d ago

@thechosenone why did you change your comment so other s could not see what you actually wrote

thechosenone1868d ago (Edited 1868d ago )

Dude are you dense? I was joking!

I expect PS4 and 720 sales to be really close based on PS3/360 numbers

Minato-Namikaze1868d ago

Take away the 1 year head start in usa and jp as well as the 15 month head start in EU. pretty different picture as far as sales go.

SixZeroFour1867d ago

so hypothetically speaking, what do you think would have happened had sony rushed the ps3 and launched a year earlier to compete with MS or if MS would have held back and released a year later to improve the 360?

you fail to remember that by launching earlier, MS also shot themselves in the foot with the whole RRoD debacle, yet still pulled it together...what would have happened if MS decided to wait a year and didnt have the RRoD to tarnish the 360 image for some ppl to this day?

it goes both ways, and we will never know what would have happened in either case...everything would have been under different circumstances

T21867d ago

I think the main reason you wont see dominance is that a lot of people now buy both systems but as long as both sell 70 million hopefully its a win , win for gamers

GalacticEmpire1868d ago

There's absolutely no reason this can't happen. Sony's strategy so far has won over quite a few gamers and should XB3 not be quite up to par then we could easily see a return to the PS2 days of dominance.

SixZeroFour1867d ago

won over? i thought they lost some gamers when you compare ps3 sales with ps2 sales

Commence fighting in 5...4...3..2...
