PS4 Console Takes up Half of the Top 10 Amazon List, PlayStation Products Take up 9, Xbox One

When you talk to anyone who devotes a lot of time to reading news and following what’s happening in the games industry, it’s clear who ‘won E3′. But, just as most of the internet bashes Call of Duty and loves cult hits, internet success doesn’t always translate into sales.

For Sony, however, it does. - PSLS (E3, PS4, Xbox One)

I really never would have thought Sony would have made this big of a comeback after how badly people were bashing the PS3.
BigFnHooters  +   404d ago
How can Sony with the top selling console in the world for the past three plus years have a 'comeback'?

Absolute dominance by Sony going all the way back to 1994 when they first entered the console market. Sony has had the top selling console worldwide non-stop for 20 years with the only exception of the three years the Wii fad was active.

And now with the PS4 Sony is going to extend their domination for seven more.

Because Xbots have been bashing the PlayStation 3 for years...or did you miss that bit of the internet for the last 6 years?

Mistakes were made, but Sony has been correcting them.
I'm proud that Sony learned from their mistakes this Gen and is paying much closer attention to they're core audience and fan-base.
So when you win next Gen PS4. Don't mess it up and get all pricey and arrogant again;-)

'learned from their mistakes'?

LOL

How cute.

Companies that are dominating their market like Sony is with the PS3 don't need to 'learn from their mistakes'.

The PS1,PS2,PS3,PS4 are exactly the same winning gameplan by Sony:

* Bleding edge console hardware design backed by unmatched ability to cost reduce high end hardware over time

* Gigantic first party exclusive developer lineup

* Massive worldwide third party developer support from all three major console regions: Japan, US, and Europe

Even with the brand new Blu-Ray drives adding to the cost of the PS3, Sony still managed to outsell the less expensive 360 every single year on the market and dumped it into last place a long time ago.

5 years ago this site was a nest for xbox fans... the total opposite... but eyy shit happens
ShinMaster  +   404d ago
It's called KARMA.
I warned those Xbox fans years ago and now look what has happened.

They mocked the PS3 for being more expensive. They mocked Blu-ray. Mocked it for having multimedia features and claimed that it was only good for watching movies. Claimed it had no games. Claimed it was "dead" and wouldn't sell.

Sony lost all the money they made on PS1 and PS2. They have lost tens of billions of dollars the last 10 years and are struggling financially. If you call that winning what the heck does it mean when they are losing.

Good God, I love my PS3 (and my 360), but all the "Xbots were bashing us" whining from hardcore Sony fans is ridiculous.

It's like I'm listening to religious zealots that insist that they are both the "winning majority" and also "persecuted victims" at the same time. Make up your minds.

It's strange to think back on it now but in 2007 (and well into 2008) N4G had a 360 fan majority.

Now there were lots of PS3 fans on here too, most articles speaking about either console had a decent amount of bickering and rants from both sides.

Not like now with the Xbox One, where everyone just agrees it sucks and then a few trolls here and there get downvoted into oblivion.

On a related note, I really miss the open comment section where people could curse their hearts out and overall just act as crazy as they wanted. Had lots of fun with that before they merged the comment sections.
(Also the reason I made this account was to clear my name of the horrors of the open section.)

When I was a more naive guy back in early 2007 I would stay up sometimes reading the millions of forum posts by Xbox losers bashing playstation, while I worried that I bought a 400 dollar paperweight.

See the funny thing about the Internet is that its WRONG a lot of the time.
Now that the 360 has been outsold, it would be really funny to see ps3 climb to the top spot, if possible. Long live playstation(:
wastedcells  +   404d ago
I saw it coming in the second half of this gen. So many great new ip from Sony on the ps3. Uncharted 2 and The last of us are some of the best gaming experiences of all time. We all know Naughty Dog is working on Uncharted 4 and with the way the last of us turned out its getting a sequel on PS4 for sure. You owe it to yourself as a gamer to get on the playstation bandwagon.

For the last 4 years Microsoft has been riding on 3rd parties and 4 franchises. They gutted their first party development teams. They have added no value to it's Gold service and even raised it's price. They continually increased digital prices, XBLA games have gradually gone up and GoD have never come down. They have pissed off indies. And now they come out throwing money at all these developers trying to hide the above, pissed off customers and retailers, and threw developers under the bus when called out on the DRM mess. It's going to take something incredible for the bone to be a success.

I remember watching Sony's reveal on 2/20/13, and noticed a message they put up on screen that said "WE WANT TO WIN" (between 0:01:30-0:01:40)

http://www.vg247.com/2013/0...

....and I remember thinking to myself, How BAD do you want win!? and now it's obvious. Sony means business. Now that I look back, I see how brilliantly Sony played M$.

With that show, they suckered M$ to show their cards, while at the same time they managed to keep their cards close to their chest. Heck, They didn't even show the console!

And when E3 came around, what was the one thing that made me watch that show streamed live from the internet until almost midnight here on the east coast....?
I wanted to see that friggin console, damn it! (I also remember they showed that clip at E3 that said "but I thought you said, looks doesn't matter"!) that made me smile and say to myself, this entire campaign was genius.

Well played, indeed SONY.

Sony didn't "come back" like BigFnHooters said, it is and will remain the best console choice we have, the first two consoles from Sony stomped the competition, the Ps3 will hit diamond numbers when it hits the 200$ price tag and lower.In the PS4's case I believe, it will be the top selling console this generation, I think it will sell between 95-110 million units, the Wii U around 75 million and xbox 70 million , they will all do well but the PS4 will come out on top.

To me MS's problem isn't so much $499 or always online its the fact they totally gave up on core gamers in last 3 years of xbox360 life cycle.

Now they are all for core gamers again with showing a lot of games but how soon will they turn on us again to chse the casual or cable/entertainment market?

Track Record counts, Nintendo and sony are known for delivering great Exclusives and MS now is known for giving up on their consoles quick and turning on their fanbase to chase another part of the market

just wait till you see the world wide numbers for ps4, its not even gonna be close

also i see many people complaining about ps fanboys or fans well we had to sit through the ps3 doom articles for many years so what goes around comes around

Does Xbox only have one SKU? That could be something worth noting. It's hard to fill up slots with only one sku and no bundles.
R_aVe_N  +   404d ago
Technically there are 2 but they haven't sold out of the Day One edition yet. Sony has sold out of Launch Day so that is why you see all the other models/bundles on there. Those will arrive later in the year. I am figuring that other Launch bundles will sell out soon enough.

Hey I saw a pre order for ps4 at 399 Canadian? Did they keep it at 399 here too it usually 50 more here ?
DragonKnight  +   404d ago
They did. Checking the page now however won't let you pre-order the PS4 which is odd considering I did pre-order it and it's still under my Open Orders area to be shipped on Dec 3rd 2013. I assume then that the PS4s on Amazon.ca have sold out already and don't have the "standard" edition like Amazon.com.

Considering that the price of the Canadian and American units are the same (with exchange rates obviously being the difference), I would suggest pre-ordering off amazon.com since they ship to Canada anyway.
wastedcells  +   404d ago
Shit I must have missed that then? I was on days ago and they had nothing up. Not even games. I had to pre order everything at FS and then a second PS4 at EB just to be safe.

I think it has to do with that only real gamers get the new consoles at launch, and us real gamers are getting tired of call of duty! All the 12 year olds that dominate the cod lobbies don't have the money or arent as informed as us to get a console at launch. Yes it will still be comming out for ps3/360, but that can be preordered later on.

like most gamers, I've been pretty appalled at the Xbone and I've had a lot of bad things to say about it. it's just been my own personal opinion and nothing you could say wasn't true or too far fetched.

but I've stopped short at proclaiming PlayStation would dominate or destroy Xbox, thinking many with different tastes than myself will still support it.

but whether or not you think Sony will rise as undisputed leader again, a position only they really deserve, you can't help but think they are bringing something special in the next year, and that they seem to be doing everything right while Microsoft seem to be doing everything wrong and the usual suspects that keep defending them no matter what they do seem all the more desperate and like they're trying to convince themselves not us.

and remember, we still have no idea what media molecule and naughty dog are up to. it boggles the mind.
S2Killinit  +   404d ago
This is the result of not abandoning your core base. Sony really delivered with the PS3. Look at the performance of this machine, its been giving us AAA after AAA game all the way to the end. I want to applaud Sony for a job well done, and the only way I can do that is by buying their next system.

THIS IS MASSIVE!

Less than 4 months ago I was eagerly waiting to see what the PS4 reveal was going to bring and also what response the Xbox would have.

Wow! Who would of guessed this turn of events back then? Only silence from MS for 3 months, followed by a weak reveal. At last, games at E3 from MS but not enough day 1 releases and NO communication about system hardware internals and DRM, online, etc.

We have all gotta be proud of gamers for sticking to their guns and demanding free rights as consumers. This is the bigger story here - not PS4 or XB1.

Thanks to all the loyal 360 gamers who have proved they care more about gaming than simple blind faith in MS. It takes a lot to change your gaming habits. I salute you all!
