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

I really never would have thought Sony would have made this big of a comeback after how badly people were bashing the PS3.

BigFnHooters1111d ago (Edited 1111d 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.

Foolsjoker1111d ago

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

Army_of_Darkness1111d ago (Edited 1111d ago )

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;-)

BigFnHooters1111d ago

'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

ShinMaster1111d ago (Edited 1111d ago )

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.

justastranger101110d ago (Edited 1110d ago )

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.

lastdual1110d ago

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.

CoolBeansRus1110d ago

Agree with lastdual. Sony fanboys bash and Xbox fanboys bash. Say what you want, ports play and look better on the Xbox.

I wouldn't be celebration for the destruction of any brand. You think Sony won't abuse their power if they are the only option? Cmon now. 599 us dollars, remember that?

People were bashing the PS3 ? I only remember the whole Hacking thing.

SolidDuck1111d ago (Edited 1111d ago )

Well in America they were. Not really in the rest the world. But it's nice seeing Sony get the ball rolling again. Although I've loved my ps3. I've been enjoying the last of us today.

Pumbli1111d ago

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.)

zep1111d ago (Edited 1111d ago )

disagree more xbone failed

Pumbli1111d ago

zep - I'm betting your disagree is from someone with bad memories of the open section hehe.

torchic1111d ago

people (Xbox Cheapies) bashed PS3 because they were annoyed at the fact that they couldn't afford one.

hard facts right there.

MASTER_RAIDEN1111d ago

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(:

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.

RiPPn1111d ago

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.

nosferatuzodd1110d ago

They say pas3 was a blue ray player now look at them cable box one lol
Payback is a bitch Microsoft greed is internal

killacal131110d ago

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.

Godmars2901110d ago

They have to actually make and move product you know.

RedHawkX1110d ago

its time for everyone to move back to the playstation. woman and children first the xbox ship is sinking. you either come to the playstation ship or you die with the xbox captain. dont be stupid guy. all will be forgivin. you will be able to enjoy gaming again on the playstation side.

showtimefolks1110d ago

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

Good to know COD game is not in the list.

Shadonic1111d ago

Its a sign that there player-base is staving off the brainwashing process.

Xaphy1111d ago

After playing COD for years Im switching to battlefield. Now that my good friend is an innovative game. Got tired of COD.

NameRemoved00171111d ago

I was disappointed by BF3 but it is still a good game, BF4 on the other hand looks like a true BF2 Sequel.

RiPPn1111d ago

The destructible environments in BF4 look amazing.

T21111d ago

Yes bf3 replay value is high becuz you can really troll people with c4 or dominate in a chopper... Big range of activities ..

TheTwelve1110d ago

I'm so happy COD isn't on that list...

Wedge191111d ago

This is great. I wonder how that translates into total number of sales though.

Shadonic1111d ago

1 Gazillion dollars ( Doctor Evil pinkie stare)

Foolsjoker1111d ago

I imagine more pre-orders, more sales.

Wedge191111d ago

Oh I know, I just mean does it mean 500,000 for PS4, then only 230,000 for xbox, then 223,000 for launch eidtion, etc. etc.. I want to know the total number of PS4's ordered versus total number of Xbones ordered.

Moonman1111d ago (Edited 1111d ago )

Xbox Done. ;p

(stick a fork in it)

Benjaminkno1111d ago

I still like to call it the "eXtortionBox"

Hey jokesonyou turns out jokesonyou ;-).

EDIT: On Topic holy shit going really well.

NatureOfLogic1111d ago

Only if he knew that you can't spell jokesonyou without Sony, he would probably change his name.

zeroskie1110d ago

That is a special kind of irony. I can't believe I didn't notice that.
