In The Sun (UK) 79% Choose PS4 Instead Of Xbox One

According to an online poll by well-known UK tabloid, The Sun the PlayStation 4 is winning by a landslide in the UK too. (PS4, Xbox One)

Update There is also a release date noted for the PS4 of November 21st and while the Sun is a tabloid therefore meaning that you should take the information with a grain of salt, it is the best selling newspaper in the UK therefore it could be true.

Is this a dream? Is this all just a heavenly dream? This just seems too good to be true. A major multibillion dollar company is getting their a**es handed to them every single day by the power of karma. It's just too delicious.

yes Finally, this attachment to microsoft and xbox in the uk is fading never understood why it ever existed. i will no longer have to put up with people who only ever play cod and fifa lecturing me at how their console is far superior
Game4life  +   689d ago
people tell ylou their console is better because of fifa and cod?

do people live under a giant rock like patrick star? At least he comes our on a daily basis to see the world.

My thoughts exactly, it's the same here in germany. But as far as I know, all Xbox360 users I know are planning on getting a PS4 already, even the stubborn ones lol

If I was to imagine a "best case scenario" for the PlayStation 4 before it was revealed, even I wouldn't have imagined the situation we have right now. That's how outrageously bad Microsoft has done so far.

Not only has Sony done practically every single thing right, but Microsoft have been on an ongoing suicide mission, I couldn't have dreamed the extent of how bad the xbone reveal has been. Every day it gets worse and worse and worse. And when you don't think it can get any worse, it does.

You know judging by ps3 and 360, all ps4 had to do was launch the same time as Xbone, and it would have sold more. But what we have in ps4 is a console that's:

- launching the same time as Xbone
- more powerful then Xbone
- cheaper then Xbone (by $100)
- faster RAM (GDDR5)
- more usable RAM (7gb for games vs 5gb)
- better looking
- less restrictive BY FAR
- can be played offline
- can share games absolutely freely
- doesn't watch you take a crap


And with Xbone you get a console that's weaker, more expensive, restricted like hell, uglier, and a brick if you're Internet goes down.

The Amazon poll is what absolutely kills it for me. Biggest shop in the world with a clearly unbiased audience. 95% of people prefer PS4 to Xbone

Microsoft couldn't have done a better job at promoting the PlayStation 4

Xbone - Dead on arrival

There will be ALOT of salty tears in the Microsoft camp come Fall 2013. Delicious tears.

...by another major multibillion dollar company though...
ApolloTheBoss  +   689d ago
No. By the PEOPLE.
-Gespenst-  +   689d ago
I guess... but all that's really happening is that we the people, by our votes and polls and support, are transferring all that power to another massive company, whom I'm not sure has all that different an outlook to Microsoft.

I'm no xbox fanboy, I've never owned an xbox or and xbox 360, and I won't be buying the xbone, but I'd encourage you to read my blog: http://n4g.com/user/blogpos...

ZodTheRipper  +   689d ago
^Where Microsoft can't be saved by patriotic gamers and people are very cautious about their privacy. And I also think that Sony has still some aces up in their sleeves that they'll be revealing soon since we still haven't heard anything about Naughty Dogs, Media Molecules and probably Guerillas and Santa Monicas PS4 projects. Microsoft on the other hand seems like it shot it's bolts already last week.

@b_one SONY will become even more appealing than they already are.
Mikelarry  +   689d ago
lol and here they were banking on the ignorance of consumer to buy the product just because the previous console was successful. lol not the brits we are smarter than MS thinks
ramtah  +   689d ago
:O did they just reveal the realse date:P?

Moonman  +   689d ago
Exactly. But hey, they have never beat Sony (in the worldwide reality) and the tradition will continue it seems. :)
b_one  +   689d ago
with such marketing and "fame" anyone will know, not only gamers
urwifeminder  +   689d ago
Most xbox gamers would have been online playing the amazing games rather than voting on this, I get the impression most sony gamers care more about winning than playing.

We just got The Last of Us; will still be getting Beyond Two Souls and Gran Turismo.

What the heck does the 360 have? Are you not bored of only playing COD for the last few years?
urwifeminder  +   688d ago
Never heard of them games but I hope you enjoy them im on pc all the time myself so I wouldn't know.
lucaskeller1  +   689d ago
That may not seem like a lot but the uk is the biggest market percentage for xbone
CRASHBASHUK  +   689d ago
well it looks like they have lost there UK fan base woo go ps4 :D
wishingW3L  +   689d ago
and the UK and USA is what maintained the X360 competitive but now they don't even have that... If I were the head of the Xbox division I'd be crapping my pants right about now. Because it's true that they are Microsoft and have deep pockets but unlike with Windows they have no monopoly here that can save them like it happened with Vista or Windows 8 which people hated so much.

I believe every store should have those kind of adverts present for customers to view

If even Sun readers (an oxymoron if ever I heard one) can see through your snake oil, you may as well give it up as a bad job.
-Gespenst-  +   689d ago
I'm not an xbot by any stretch of the imagination, and I consistently buy Sony consoles, but I'm also not a Sony fanboy, I just generally prefer what they have to offer.

However, I'd encourage some peeps to read my recent blog entry, see what you think. I'm not so sure Sony's outlook is that different to MS's...

i dont think that's an official release date. i think it's just speculation, but i could be wrong
MrAnderson  +   689d ago
and the UK is primarily an xbox over ps3 country (I have a ps3 and I live in the UK, pretty much everyone I know has an xbox instead)

so that's really saying something.

Order will be restored with Sony at the helm of victory. This can only be good for gamers and our industry.

Looks like things are only gonna get worse for microsoft from here on out
turgore  +   688d ago
Just because it is the best selling newspaper it doesn't mean it will get the date right. However, a november release seems alright.
