Sony Will Defeat Microsoft In This Console War

I must say this, Sony is leading in pre-Orders has of right now, not only that but ps4 is one hundred dollars less than the xbox one . Which means that if Microsoft doesn’t drop the price of the Xbox One, and remove this mandatory kinect 2.0 from spying on people, this will hurt their sales. Now the next thing is this , Microsoft needs more first party titles, we are tired of seening the Halo’s , Forza, & Gears of War. Microsoft is running these titles in the ground , we are in the next gen era so we need to see new ip’s out the gate. Sony on the other hand is producing more first party titles at launch , giving gamers more to choose form . The ps4 is more powerful than the xbox one, a prime example is the memory, xbox one is using GDR3 and ps4 is using GDR5. (PS4, Xbox One)

A bit early to say who will win the console war,but it does seem Sony will take an early lead.

I agree it's too early, but logically speaking it's not that hard to believe.

PS3 still outsold Xbox 360 launching a year later, with a $100 - $200 price difference the majority of the consoles life cycles, tons of negative press the first couple of years, and developer not being able to cope with the hardware early on.

Sony has eliminated all those problems Day 1 with the PS4, and on top of that they're $100 less, with MS adopting all the problems that plagued the PS3 this time around.

Logically speaking the PS4 has a huge advantage going into this console generation, also Nintendo isn't looking to good either.

I laugh about this because honestly, it took them 7 years to catch up and they didn't dominate in all parts of the world either.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   422d ago
I have a feeling you won't be laughing much this time around.
IRetrouk  +   422d ago
@ mustang, it didnt take 7 years to catch up, ps3 was out selling 360 from day 1, the diffrence in numbers were due to being a year later in usa and a year and a half in europe if you look at the numbers you would see this, but it really doesnt matter that much, i got to play some fantastic games this gen on all consoles, cant wait to get stuck into the ps4 day 1 and the one a lil down the road.
imdaboss1  +   422d ago
ps3 did outsold the 360 ms won the batter but not war..its different now Sony releasing the PS4 at a cheap price expect PS4 to murder the xbone..PS4 will sell at least 30 million more then the xboner..Ill say within 2 to 3 years..Quote me on that..
sarcastoid  +   422d ago
Very true. If someone would've told me in 2007 that ps3 would beat 360 worldwide I would've laughed. No way to tell how this coming gen will turn out but Sony is definitely hitting the ground running and doing almost all the right things.
The_HarryEtTubMan  +   422d ago
If they still passed MS this gen, and looking at how things are going so far for the new consoles....I believe Xbox One won't even be competitive worldwide. We are talking about a good old-fashioned blowout.

So then the streak will continue? I mean the current gen console war is still going technically so it is not over until the ps3 goes like the ps2 but they have outsold the xbox 360 and I imagine the last of us will generate even more sales for sony. I am a PC gamer so lets get that out of the way but it seems to me like everyone is counting the current gen war over. One war at a time please :P But it definitely seems like ms lost a lot of people with their drm then their lack of balls to stick to their plan. At the end of the day, console makers generate the most money from game sales and apparently the xbox smokes the playstation when it comes to actual game purchases so we will have to see.
StinKyNuGz  +   422d ago

C-Thunder  +   422d ago
I agree, but at the same time I find it replaces all the fun in most games with stress. It's a strange experience, excellently presented, but I feel exhausted after each session with it. Certainly the best of its genre.

It seems pretty clear to me that MS is going for the casual crowd with their "entertainment" box, focused more on casual games and a tv set top box type of setup. While Sony is focussing more on the core gamer. Which group will buy more consoles this generation? Idk. But I do know which one I'm buying. As a gamer coming from the xbox360, I can't wait to get my hands on the PS4. Piss off M$!
C-Thunder  +   422d ago
Agree, the Ones biggest hurdle will be getting that casual markets attention before all their hardcore friends already have a PS4. That $500 price tag and limited supply will be tough to get over for the casuals. Also, do they still want motion controls or has the fad aspect of it passed? Do the Wii only casuals even feel the need to change?
kennyg3739  +   422d ago
I'm looking at both Sony and Microsoft and their both very similar, and both of them will announce games at gamescon. Yes, the Xbox One does have the entertainment part and the kinect stuff. But everyone saying (N4G sony fanboys) that Sony lineup is a lot better is just ridiculous.
Good_news_every1   422d ago | Spam
S2Killinit  +   422d ago
First of all lets just make sure you know, its not just N4G its all vocal gamers on every site, even sites that are traditionally pro Microsoft. Also, Sony will have a better line up (if history is any indication) and also will support its console for a longer period of time without slowly phasing out gaming. But if you like the xb one then that's what you like, don't listen to other people and make your own decision.
sAVAge_bEaST  +   422d ago
That's funny, microsoft going after the casual;s, then they need a casual price of 199$ or less.
Felonycarclub8  +   422d ago
Dude Microsoft is definitively going to win because you can watch Tv on the xbox1, when they first showed this my mind just blew up. It's just amazing how powerful the x1 is to be able to do that, I can't wait to watch tv on my x1. I only wish the ps4 was this revolutionary and its funny when people say that the ps4 is more powerful than the x1, so then why can't it play Tv.lol

Everyone has their opinion. I am actually excited to see what developers do with Kinect 2.0 considering it comes with every system. I think both systems have a really good line up of exclusives. I can't wait for Titalfall, and Infamous well that just looks f*uking amazing. I'm glad Microsoft dropped the stupid DRM crap so I can get both systems at launch! As for as the HD is concerned you can connect an external the XBOX ONE, get your facts straight.

Happy Gaming

I think ony is going to sell more consoles do to Japan but MS will make more money again.

Its going to depend on what you think success is. Sony has a very ravenous support group they are very vocal and are really only SONY users. They are not going to convert change or anything.

MS has a group like that to but they are probably just a bit smaller. So the ONE will have success no matter what.

I thik unlike this gen the 2 systems will have vastly different experiences available and I think MS will have the better or at least the opportunity to have a better experience do to kinect being revamped and in with every system and the investment they have made with the cloud.

All the later adopters that arent auto sony will come to the ONE. Not to mention its mass market appeal with smart tv, and now being the best of the motion gaming devices all of those sales will come to the ONE.
AceofStaves  +   422d ago
I doubt the XB1 will have mass market appeal out of the gate. The price barrier is a concern for families, and its TV/multimedia integration is US-focused.

MS needs to show consumers why they would want to have an XB1 with its added Kinect 2.0. In the US, they can stress the TV functionality. Globally, they need to stress the games.
schlanz  +   422d ago
Very poorly written article.. no one cares, apparently, they would all rather just comment how they agree, without reading it.

I agree.
AceofStaves  +   422d ago
There's no doubt that the XB1 faces some hurdles, but it's too early to call a winner in yet. I think the race may be close in North America, given MS' strong fanbase in the U.S., but globally, Sony will have a strong advantage given that the XB1 is only going to release in certain markets in 2013. The XB1's TV integration is basically a U.S.-only proposition. Other countries may get similar services, but if Netflix is any indication, the difference in service between regions may well be staggering.

The $100 price difference is a big deal. Many will buy the console at launch, but families looking for a 'game box' for the kids this holiday season may go for the cheaper PS4 or WiiU.

Consumer sentiment may shift dramatically, however. Marketing will be vital for both Sony and MS this holiday season.
theWB27  +   422d ago
It's like these people are seriously getting a cut of Sony profits. Lets be clear...Xbox will never outsell the other consoles cause it already has one HUGE strike against it...it's an American product to it's core. Thus there are certain places where it will never sell against Sony and Nintendo.

But to say it'll fail is asinine and only fanboys think it'll really happen. The price point won't hinder the sells cause if people want a product then they'll buy it. There are plenty of people who simply prefer to game on a console not named Playstation.

Sony recovered last gen from the high price point. Microsoft recovered from the rrod. Both companies have followers, they will both be fine. I'm glad N4G doesn't make up any serious percentage of gamer mentality cause it'd be a sad gaming world.
greenlantern2814  +   422d ago
The price will matter to some people. And if 2 out of 10 people walk into a store and go I am buying the cheaper one in the end that will add up to a lot of sales.
It won't matter to most people people that I agree with but the fact is some people will make their decision on price.
theWB27  +   422d ago
I can see that happening with a much cheaper product that may not be kept long. I can see people saying give me the cheaper one if the products did the same thing, like an e-book reader but not a system with different exclusives and functions. Most people buy systems based off games, the feel of the controller and the system you're closer with. 100 bucks wont matter as much when it's an investment like this.

"Sony Will Defeat Microsoft In This Console War"

Dont you losers get tired of making topics like this? you insult one console to make yourself feel better, but in the long run your insulting yourself since everyone plays these things for the games not for some immature imaginary war. Sigh..... the days of the 80's, and the 90's ill miss em.
cleft5  +   422d ago
You means the days when Sega was hardcore bashing Nintendo. Or do you means the days when Nintendo and Sony where heavily at odds with one another, to the point that developers where picking sides.

Also, it's a little disingenuous to say it's all about the games, when one company just tried to create policies that imposed a bunch of restrictions and DRM on gamers. Thankfully, they failed and reverted their efforts. This generation isn't going to be just about games, but policies that will determine how console gaming goes for years to come.

Which has yet to be confirmed by sony because they they aren't.....lol

"And you also know ps2 sold 150 million compared to less then 30 million Xbox."

And you know ps3 only sold half of that but xbox 36o quadrupled their numbers. Those are the only facts I need to know....lol Of all the superheros you pick greenlantern...lol

MASTER_RAIDEN  +   422d ago
i believe that things will remain largely the same between the two console makers during the next gen with only a few noticeable shifts in sales: MS will still probably have a stronghold on the american market, but this time the PS4 will have an even greater presence in the US. MS will most likely still come out on top in NA though. Americans are a difficult group of people to change when the advertising is done right. speaking of difficult minds to change, MS will have absolutely no presence in japan this time around, nor will they try as hard as they did last time to create a presence. EU will be the ps4's mainland. without a pricedrop the wii u will be very few peoples secondary console this time around. 3ds will continue to sell by the truckload while the vita fights tooth and nail to even reach psp status. mobile games will not affect handheld sales. dlc will become more in-your face, if you can believe it.

PS4 will outsell xbox one from the very beginning.

"PS4 will outsell xbox one from the very beginning'

Same thing was said about vita outselling 3ds but look at what's happening. Don't underestimate MS and it's superior marketing abilities. They did it with the 360 and the same thing will happen with the one.
greenlantern2814  +   422d ago
No they didn't
lost after a year long head start and cheaper price point.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   422d ago
the vita and 3ds sales have absolutely nothing to do with anything. ps4 sales are in no way shape or form related to vita sales. xbox one sales DEFINITELY dont have anything to do with 3ds sales.
im guessing youre trying to draw relevance because both the ps4 and vita are sony products, but theyre 2 completely different products. by your logic, the playstation one should have been outsold by the n64 10fold because in the 70's VHS outsold sonys beta max player.
Fallacy.

EDIT: and btw, the ps3 has outsold the 360 in both sales rate and total numbers. xbox has never once beaten playstation in total sales. they never "did it with the 360".

If you want an early preview of how the sales will look.. just go look at the PS3/360 sales and look at whats doing what in different regions, and match the US numbers a bit.. that is the number you'll get.
