Sony's Scott Rohde has revealed that when Microsoft announced the Xbox One's $499 price point at E3 that Sony employees rehearsing their E3 presentation 'running up and down the aisles' with happiness as they knew it bode well for the PS4.
Great to know! If you look at how PS4 is straight dominating amazon now....WOW! Look at all those PS4's! http://www.amazon.com/best-...
reminds me of this :) https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW50...
I ran up and down the aisle too, and I don't even work for Sony. It was the final nail in the coffin to avoid the Xbox One.
"The developers said what they wanted, eight gigs of the fastest ram available, all these things that developers wanted, still managed to do that in a machine that was super slick looking and still did it for $399 and that’s why it’s a moment we’re very proud of. That was accentuated when our competitors announced that theirs was $499" When I heard $399! I was like " Yeeeeaaaah!! F$#K yeeeah!!!" my GF was laughing at me cause I was doing lui Kang's bicycle kick on the bed at the same time...
That was pretty funny, bubbles mate for making me chuckle. Totally wish I could share this on face book without actually losing the animation.
That better be the middle finger.
For 499 you get a game and 1 year of PS+... thats sick... Xbox doesn't stand a chance, you got to be a Forza hardcore or something similar to get the One at launch...
Kevin Butler "you got to be a Forza hardcore or something similar to get a ONE at launch..." I'm a hardcore Forza fan and I'm not getting the X1. Trust me when I say I'm not happy about it but I'm not taking it up the backside by this (MS) smug arrogant company a minute longer. I jumped ship and I'm heading to the land of Sony.
awww xbox still not sold out since 3 days ago??? lmfao. I hope xbox manages to beat the Last Of Us in the uk. ha ha But the ps4 version of watch dogs might beat xbox one lol ps4 #1 in usa: http://www.amazon.com/best-... #1 in germany http://www.amazon.de/gp/bes... #1 in uk: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/... #1 in france: http://www.amazon.fr/gp/bes... #1 in spain: xbox is #15 in spain lol http://www.amazon.es/gp/bes... #1 in italy: http://www.amazon.it/gp/bes...
ROFL A Nintendo 3ds power adapter is ranked higher than an "Xbox One Console"
So now all of a sudden the ranked twice is not an argument anymore, because its the XB1 thats ranked twice instead of the ps4.... )UK'
^ LMFAO! Who cares!?!?! PS4 is still NUMBER 1 in the UK while Xbox One is only #4 and #9. Even The Last Of Us is ahead of it. XD
Amazon Canada is such a joke. Firstly, they only make the Xbox One allowed to be pre-ordered and then never put the PS4 up for pre-order and now it's too late. Good thing EB Games is popular in Canada, or else I'd be pissed. However, the fact that the PS4 is still in #2 spot on Amazon Canada without even having any pre-orders being taken is still incredible! http://www.amazon.ca/gp/bes...
It's number one in New Zealand too!
shutUpAndTakeMyMoney ps4 being successful is a given but you know what i am excited by, its the fact last of us is selling quite well. ND deserve all the sales they get for a master piece I hope LOU sells atleast 5 million plus i saw advertisement at superman movie and on espn.com so sony has gotten better $399 sony's ps4 vs $499 ms xbox one, thing is sony's ps brand is much stronger world wide compare to Xbox and its kind of understandable since PS brand has been in existence for much longer, ps3 was out selling xbox360 even when it was $599 so now that's its cheaper what makes anyone think xbox one will outsell ps4. ps4 will outsell xbox one from day one and i don't think ms will ever be able to catch or pass ps4's sales number next gen. That doesn't mean xbox one won't be successful, i am sure it will sell well enough this is the way i see it ps4 wiiu xbox one
"#1 in spain: xbox is #15 in spain lol http://www.amazon.es/gp/bes... " Wroooooooong! #17 now Killzone Mercenary and Jak&Daxter for vita are ahead in Spain lmao!
@Foxgod: How much do MS pay to you smack the PS4? In MS points?
That is pretty funny that Call of Duty Ghosts is pre-ordered more in the UK for the PS4 than the Xbox One version. Guess the timed exclusive isn't helping the Xbox One
it felt down to 17 in Spain in no time ! it's #1 in Scandinavian countries as well! Greatness awaits 4>1
LOL spain must be the PS heaven
That is amazing and i think its only gonna get worse for Microsoft as the launch month approaches (assuming the ps4 launches simultaneously with xbone), the ps4 is gonna be sold out for awhile unless sony can meet demand in the inital first batch of consoles. But to see that the xbone still hasn't sold out since pre-orders was announced for the console sends one hell of a loud message that gamers aren't falling microsoft's BS this time around no matter what.
7 PS4 models all in the Top 10. Wow.
The last of us is the only western game in japan top 10. http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/... Now that's awsome.
Just subbed to ps plus today ... Bring it on
That says it all
One thing that I find really striking was the difference in the Sony and MS stages at E3. The Sony stage was head and shoulders above the MS stage in terms of style, sophistication, and impact.
Plus the Sony guys were all classy, dressed up on their biz suits, very professional. That one guy who announced the xbox price was dressed like a highschooler
Even the crickets left the XBox conference.
Funny. You actually heard cheering during the Xbox conference. The only time the crowd reacted during Sony's was used game details & price. You could hear Janet Jackson speak during game announcements.
Hahahaha that is freaking funny ;)))) "we will start over"
Am i the only one who ordered Knack edition,this game made by the guy who supervise top SEGA and PS selling games(Sonic,Crash,Spyro,JAK,UC ....)
I agree. I'm probably going to get Knack. It looks very original and looks to be filled with fresh ideas. This game deserves some attention.
I got the Knack edition too. Also got a second controller. Will get some game preordered at Gamestop and also get the Eye at some point too.
Cerny is a master level 99 when it comes to videogames. His current game is aimed at all ages more family friendly. Sony always aims at all demographics from kids to adults, I'm getting knack for the nephews
Nope, I pre-ordered the Knack Edition too. I feel like it's not as well known as say Watch Dogs and Battlefield. That'd explain why the PS4 Knack Launch Edition only at #35 on Amazon. Even still that's the launch game calling out to me the most.
I`m waiting to see more gameplay showing more different mechanics. I really liked the concept, but so far it looks too repetitive. Hope to be wrong
It's also dominating Gamestop(both online and in-store pre-orders).
dammit i cant decide if i should buy the battlefield edition or the killzone one... i mean to keep the box so is kinda important
I'd personally go for the Killzone version
I personally Pre-ordered the PS4, KZ:SF, and PS+ Edition on Amazon.. and got BF4, and Watch Dogs Separately. but I would go with the killzone version. especially if PS+ is included.
such great...looking games...c-can't...d-d-deci de...[self destructs]
xbox is second -_- whys that so bad. the ps4 is cheaper so of course its gonna sell alot more at first
How ironic to hear that from an apparent Xbox fan. How times have changed.
Lol the irony.. From an Xbox fan
Playstation fans are the thirtiest coons ive ever seen. lol i was all for ps4 until i literally (and im not lying) dozed off on the e3 press conference. xbox has better games at launch. but ill be getting a ps4 later anyway so doesnt matter. By fanboy you guys mean fan of video games and yes i am. and the price has ALOT to do with those pre orders. lets be logical people here please. im the furthest thing from a fanboy. logic is all that is needed to see that
Lol now he is talking about logic this butthurt fanboy is the best I have seen here in a while
Lol ya'll clownin
It's more than the price, it also the fact that sony does not have a used game policy, or require an internet connection every 24 hours to play your game. Also the ps4 has a great launch lineup.
Cheaper? You forgot more powerful among various other reasons such as no online bs, free use of used games, etc. You wouldn't support DRM on dvd and bluray movies would you? Why would you support that on consoles. Open your eyes for the next time it will be online only.
Broke? My how the tables have turned. We bought the ps3 when it was 599. Now that its 399 because we don't want to buy the xbox for 499 it means were broke. No my good sir, it just means we are using logic. Logic in picking a console that has more raw power, intriguing exclusives and is looking out for the consumer without implementing horrible policies. Just because something is expensive doesn't make it better. I saw the xbox conference. The only thing interesting was quantum break and i bet they tossed in that cg halo for the heck of it because every game was multi or on pc. Not to mention they demoed every game on a pc dev kit instead of their xbox dev one.
yeah i went to gamestop today and heard from a friend that they only had 3 xbox's available for preorder and i didnt believe it. so i asked the lady and she said its true but they only have 24 for the release! LOL i asked why and she said cause of all the hate its getting they dont want to be stuck with so much stock thats what alot of gamestops are doing apparently from what she said. and shes the store manager. I also asked how many ps4's they have available to preorder and she said 32 out of 97 were still available. XBOX ONE IS DOOMED UNFORTUNATELY.
Why would GameStop give any priority to Xbox after Microsoft almost murdered them, had it not been from Sony
I'm surprised that they're even supporting it at all since they want to run them out of business.
Where is the Knack Bundle? Don't tell me I was the only one to buy one so far. Lol Anyway great to see the PS4 doing so well. I'm just glad because I bought the bundle I get a launch day guarantee.
here is my question is xbox one really more costly to make than ps4? even though reports says ps4 is more powerful than xbox one so what gives how come a system using more expensive ram and more powerful cheaper than xbox one? if someone could explain without the fanboys attitude that would be appreciated, legit question since many sites reporting differently
I wanted to answer this last night, but my work computer refused to correctly load N4G. There is no way to know until someone can get costs from the manufacturers, which may take a while. However, if I to guess the biggest difference is the fact that the camera is included on the Xbox One. With the specs it has, I doubt it is an extremely cheap part. Other than that, it's hard to tell. Sony has some slightly more expensive internals, but MS has a bigger box and external power supply.
Sony is a hardware company.
Holy crap !!! Amazon is the PlayStation Nation !!!
is it just my imagination or has day one Xbone STILLLLLLLLLLLLL not sold out??? lmao
It does so much more than the ps4. The price is good and easily justified and as time goes and people see all it does it sales will sky rocket, as will the ps4. I I think both systems are going to be great and gaming will be all the more better or it.
Guess this will fit in here... But if you look on Amazon you have PS4 packages garnering the 1,3,5,6,8th positions. True Xbox One has #2, but that's ALL of it combined. But people have pointed that out so I wanted to give you some other thoughts. If the xbox one is selling so good.... Then why is the PS4 camera sold more than the top rated Xbox One game. That's right, more PS4 cameras then Forza 5. Sony hasn't even talked about the PS4 camera really. PS4 has four games in the top 20. Xbox One has 0. Their best, again, is Forza at #22. The funny thing is if you look on the right, the most 'wished for' thing is the Xbox One and 3rd most wished for is the PS4. Because obviously these were wishes from before the knowledge of what MS was trying to pull on its customers. Now that people know the downsides (drm, spying, etc). Know it's $100 more and yet the PS4 is also has 50-125 percent more raw power those wishes are not translating into sales. Forza 5 is #22 Battlefield 4 is #28 Dead Rising is #31 Call of Duty is #33 Ryse is #36 Destiny on xbox is #47 Watch Dogs on xbox is #69 Kinect Sports: Rivals is #77 Titanfall on xbox is #99 Madden on xbox is not listed in top 100 On PS4 Watch Dogs is #11 (58 spots higher) Battlefield 4 is #14 (14 spots higher) Killzone Shadow Fall is #17 Desinty is #18 (29 spots higher) Infamous Second Son #26 Call of Duty is #32 (1 spot higher) Final Fantasy XV #41 Kingdom Hearts III #42 Knack is #56 The Order: 1886 is #63 Madden 25 #81 Fifa 14 #92 So as you can see here the PS4 games are selling much stronger. Games like Watchdogs, Destiny, and Battlefield 4 are selling much more on PS4. PSN network cards are #7 and #12 compared to #15 and #16 for Xbox live. Dual Shock 4 controllers is #9 Xbox one controller is #23 So in other words, at least for Amazon, PS4 is absolutely tearing a new asshole on the xbox one.
I bet they were. You could tell at the sony presentation that they were giddy. If sony had gone first, what do you think Microsoft would have done in response?
Seeing the intelligence of Don Mattrick I think they would of raised the price $600 if Sony went first because that man is just that stupid.
After all, that man was narcissistic enough to essentially say to all the critics who say that the Xbox One will fail all the soldiers whom that are not in internet-prime territories that: "The soldiers should fight a war in a country with better internet" ...Certified Douchebag!
I was scared near the end, 5 minutes left and no price announced..... WHAM $399. *Mic dropped*
The only thing that can ever top PS4 price being $399 is Gabe Newell announcing Half Life 3.
