PS4 Trounces Xbox One on 75,000 Votes in Console War Internet Poll

The internet has spoken: a web-based poll has gathered over 75,000 votes, and more than 75% of the participants have voted for the PS4, decreeing an overwhelming victory for Sony’s console. Of course the voting is still ongoing, so there’s still a chance for the Xbox One to regain ground. (PS4, Xbox One)

inb4 "but forum warriors don't matter. Ps3 will still sell like crazy because of brand loyalty"

Er, sorry. I forgot it wasn't 2006. I meant to say Xbox One, not PS3...

It's crazy to see this much of a lopside. While people may be quick to say "it does not matter. The early adopters don't matter..." Um, actually, they do matter. The early trajectory of a console tends to hold true. Usually consoles at the very beginning sell roughly the same amount and then one console pulls ahead of the rest 6 months to a year later.

Overwhelming support at the beginning leads to situations like the PS1, the PS2, and to a lesser extent, the Wii.

Forum warriors may indeed not matter, but 75000 votes are a very relevant statistical poll. It's actually more than most "professionally" done polls by large polling corporations.

I know georgeenoob is an Xbox fanboy, but he's right in a sense, because you can vote over and over again. Although, that also means that die-hard MS trolls are also voting over and over again, so they should cancel each other out.

What is really sad is watching you attempting to headbutt the facts.

When you finally wake up, if you finally wake up and look at matters honestly then you will easily understand there is no journal necessary.

Some of us have been here long enough that all we have to do is click back in the history and viola. I do not even need to search for the ant-Sony waves of articles.

And who cares if it is your last bubble. If you spent them wisely rather than raging then you would understand even one bubble can be enough. After all I would know. But you spent three here and what did you really accomplish? Nothing except a few more ignores added to your account.

What I am saying is this:

Historically, when consoles launch at the same time, they sell about the same amount UNTIL roughly 6 months to 1 year after launch. After that, one console pulls ahead.

This is not true 100% of the time of course. It is a generalization, which is why I said "usually".

So, the fact that it is already this lopsided BEFORE the consoles even launch is going to have a pretty big effect on the trajectory of these two consoles.
ovnipc  +   947d ago
Xbox will do just fine. PS4 will sell more at start but Xbox will catch up. Both consoles are good and have plenty to offer, but xboxone has more to offer. Games plus all the other tv stuff and the kinekt will be more than a stupid moving game thing. The kinect inside had 2GB of ram for the camera its going todo great stuff. The game line of xbone its wayy better. Killzone its ok infamous its crap, The Order we know nothing about it only that will be a linear game. Dead Rising open world with zombies looks great Killer instinct, Titanfall COD killer. not to much to think about, xbox its the winner.

Titan fall= COD with mechs

Infamous is crap= I doubt you played either of the first 2.

Kinect you mean the thing everybody says they should leave out and lower the price.
I laugh at your tv features. " yeah I can tell my Xbox to go to tv" oh wait it just as easy to push 1 button in my remote. That is unless you've lost your remote like ms suggested in their Xbox1 reveal.

If you saw the video posted on N4G recently, where Game Informer went out and asked people what they thought about the new consoles, it mostly showed that the general public isn't paying much attention to these "wars" at all. Some thought MS was still supporting DRM though, so if enough people still think that it would explain the numbers not changing since the flip flop.

Both console's wil sell well but now the public will also decide based upon price and the games. In my opinion the x1 will start slow but sooner or later gain momentum. Though the PS4 will be far ahead. For the hardcore gamer's damage has been done but then you also have to count the public whom are not keeping up with the news.

Fireseed  +   947d ago

-MotorStorm:Pacific Rift


-Gran Turismo 5

-Gran Turismo 6 (assuming)


-D.C. Universe Online

-Free Realms

-Everything inside of Playstation Home

-I believe Socom 2 for PS2 multiplayer was working on dedicated servers

-Medal of Honor 2, on the PSP (Playstation Portable) had dedicated servers it supported up to 32 players per Map

-Socom:Fire Team Bravo (psp title)

-And the PS3 to a certain extent can act as a dedicated cloud gaming server with select PS3 titles with the PSP and PSVita (via "Remote Play"), I think "Lair" is one title, and "RetroGrade" as well..

Well, I tried... But these are some titles that I THINK, had dedicated servers...

Their arrogance is finally catching up to them.. To say that Microsoft hasn't contributed anything beneficial to the industry would be asinine. They helped usher in online gaming as we know it which is great.. Their policies and approach need a lot of work..

Microsoft's plummeting popularity lies in the departure from their core audience, the anti consumer policies on the XBONE, and finally their overabundance of arrogance in regards to their defense of these polices.. When I heard Don Mattrick say this

I knew the collapse was complete....

This was a slap in the face to all gamers and belies the entire companies posture towards us gamers.. They've been slowly but surely eroding what rapport they managed to build with us between the original XBOX and the 360. When you factor in the RROD fiasco and subsequent fallout, Disc Read/scratching, Omitting features only to charge exorbitant prices to add them, dwindling first party lineup, DRM, Always online, Forced Kinect, and package all of that with their Corporate Mouthpieces behaving very unprofessionally and arrogant well the results do seem to add up..

As a PS3 and 360 owner I must say that I have been opposed to Microsoft's position in the industry only because of the issue I listed..

They treat us like a commodity instead of individuals who have finite budgets and families that must make sacrifices to enjoy our medium... I don't feel sorry for them and will not buy their products ever again until there is some serious restructuring form an executive standpoint and their company ethos reflects more consumer friendly beliefs..

If I am labeled a fanboy or sheep or whatever other derogatory statement you can think of well then so be it..

I've been posting that poll here for awhile in my comments, and the percentages have held pretty steady, though the One has gained almost 1% in that time.

If you click in the upper right corner you can get stats for each country, and if you click on the country you can get a further breakdown. The US percentages are shocking indeed.

But, it's just one poll and the number of votes is just a drop in the ocean. I think PS4 will definitely outsell the One, but I'll be really amazed if it does so by this kind of margin.
Abriael  +   947d ago
While 75000 people are a drop in the millions, it's definitely a statistically relevant pool. To give you a term of comparison "professional" market research is often done on pools that aren't over 40-50000 people, but normally much less than that. Even as low as 5000

lawgone  +   946d ago
@Abriel - That's just it, once you cross a certain threshold the number doesn't matter that much. What matters are the parameters of the poll. For example, what websites advertised this poll? Where was it discussed? Heck, you could get 5,000 votes from people coming directly from N4G and guess what's going to happen? The results will follow the same thing we see here every day. If they don't publish the parameters around the poll it's pretty much irrelevant...and that's true no matter which "side" ends up winning.
dedicatedtogamers  +   947d ago
PS1 and PS2 outsold their competition by an even wider margin.

If PS4 sold 150 million like the PS2 (just for the sake of argument) and these margins held, the Xbox One would still sell about 45 million, which was far more than the original Xbox sold against PS2. That would be about 35 million less than the 360.

And that's not a stretch. The 360 gained more than 35 million compared to its predecessor by a wide margin. The Wii gained an even bigger margin. Losing a margin of 35 million is not without numerous historical precedents.

The only reason why these margins look crazy is because last gen was so even. Even the "sells out everywhere for years and years" Wii only sold about 20 million more than the competition.

But lopsided generations are - historically - quite common. The NES era, the PS1 era, the PS2 era, and every Nintendo handheld era except for DS vs PSP were very lopsided generations.

It really wouldn't be surprising - historically - if we have another lopsided generation.

Though bear in mind guys this poll started after the Xbox one unveiling so Sony has an huge edge. The real statistics count after the initial launch.

If we going by this then that's sad. Did you know they did a poll between the presidential Candidates and Obama lost the poll n still won the campaign? In other words. Polls and pre orders doesn't mean anything

Fox polls are meaningless

Alright look both systems will have their ups and down, buy an Xbox and get entertainment features out the wazoo with your occasional halo and hope for good exclusives with the few Microsoft does get. Or get a ps4 and get less entertainment features but more focused on gaming with more and better exclusives.

The only games I liked on Xbox were listed below.
- halo2/3
- gears1/3
- fable1
Alan wake was terrible compared to heavy rain, forza is meh compared
To gran turismo.

And simply cod is the game that still takes over on Xbox and that's the biggest game on Xbox and its multi :/

Not slamming the Xbox but after this gen I would never buy a Xbox again because of how Microsoft presented themself to us the consumer.

Not to be argumentative but what entertainment features does xbox has that are missing with ps4
WeAreLegion  +   947d ago
Xbox One plays VHS. The PS4 won't have that feature at launch.
asiatico  +   947d ago
I remember years ago when the xbox 360 first came out this site was FULL of xbox fans and fanboys.. Now I see much less of them. There's a reason for that
WeAreLegion  +   947d ago
Ha. I'm so glad I'm not alone there. I sort of miss being in the minority though. And before bubbles.
buynit  +   947d ago
If you look at the big picture... This poll is not all that big, wii sold 100m ms and Sony sold a little over 3/4m..

We will only know the winner after launch it will be interesting how many xbox players transition, im one of them..

funny..i just went to my local gamestop and they said most of the xb1 pre-orders are sold out at most stores but they've got plenty of the PS4 pre-orders left at every store :p

That's because Sony gave GameStop the go ahead to take unlimited ore orders until they say otherwise.

Microsoft has been said to have trouble with mass production ATM so there are very few limited amount hence why they are sold out.

Already been said ps4 preorders are well above that of the x1
n4rc  +   947d ago
Mine said the same.. Imagine that Lol

Polls and fanboy logic are just because there is nothing else to use..

Let people talk.. I make up my own mind and I encourage everyone to do the same..

And stop trying to convert people.. Sony isn't a religion
devwan  +   947d ago
You get 10 or 20 pre-orders to offer, you are going to have no trouble selling them all. Now on the other hand, if another company offers you four times that and you sell out and they then go on to say "open the flood gates", well, that's something you don't easily sell out of.

If you think it's a good thing that limited xbox one pre-orders are sold out you're not seeing the bigger picture - without availability ms cannot sell them. If they can't sell them people have the choice of waiting or saving $100 and buying something else...

Funny mine said that ps4 where sold out but Xbox1 wasn't. See how that works.
But really they are both sold out around my area.
Just showing you and@n4rc how truly meaningless statements like that are.
sic_chops  +   946d ago
Thats funny... So if m$ allowed each gamestop 20 xbones and Sony told them to take preorders until they say stop, which one will sell out first? Do the math, if you can.

My money will go to Killer Instinct. Dead Rising looks super fun too.
WeAreLegion  +   947d ago
You're going to spend money on a new fighting game because it bares the same name as a game you're nostalgic for? That doesn't make sense to me. There's a reason Goldeneye: Reloaded didn't sell.
Xboxonefan27  +   946d ago
The game isn't new.He said that Killer Instinct is back.
Smootherkuzz  +   947d ago
Did not we were voting
When you go to the site all u see is a big behind Sony contoller, go figure, I voted for Xbox 1.
devwan  +   947d ago
When the poll started you could see 50% of each controller, the graphic is being used to express the percentage of votes either way, it's not yet another Sony conspiracy.

If it makes you feel any better, I think British accents are sexier.

The women, of course. The men do nothing for me. Though Andy Murray CAN win Wimbledon for me tomorrow.... today.

There are over 100,000 votes, not 75,000. It's just that >75,000 of them are for ps4 but there's also the 25,000 for xbox one.
quenomamen  +   947d ago

I think you can tell how little of a difference microsofts drm removal has done, look in the last 24 hours. Ps4-80% xbone-15%

"Sony fanboys outnumber MS fanboys 10:1 on the Internet, and especially on this site."

"Does 75,000 include the large number of biased die-hard Sony trolls?"

I don't understand. wouldn't any amount of "die-hard" fan or "fanboy" still be considered a potential consumer or at least fan even if all this were true wouldn't that just mean there are more fans? or at least more vocal fans? Not saying anything. But all these Illegitimizing comments about the numbers of the Playstation Nation and act like there aren't any MS or Xbox radical Fanboys or Fans. I mean when 360 was clawing onto the throne wasn't it ok?
gamer2013  +   946d ago
Over the years I have found that, people who tend to favor Xbox on this site more than likely own both systems. They don't bash other platforms or demean others for their choices and they don't spend their days trolling in non Sony news forums. Jeez, open you're fucking eyes and look around!

Hold on, I indeed do own a Wii 360 and PS3 I do use my PS3 more than all. I pre ordered a PS4 not a X1. I got my PS3 first then I bought a 360 and wasted my 150$ on a Wii when it first came out. To be honest I know a few more people that own both and still prefer PS3. Online functionality isn't everything to some people. I don't defend the PS3 it speaks for it self when people know the facts about both. I defend my personal decision.

I have nothing against MS besides what I actually disagree with. I just think at this point MS has created alot of these "fanboys". I mean, its pretty obvious to me that I see alot more PS fanboys out there then XB's. But then again a ear ago I would say the same for 360 over PS3 or even before the X1 announcement. MS made a big spectacle and pissed alot of people off fans and potential fans more importantly consumers and continued post announcement. Then played nice well AFTER E3. Why wouldn't there be a more on Sony's side they went out of there way to win over fledgling fans besides people are sheep, If a mas group says Xbox or PS sucks in time so will many others without many questions and this is pretty much whats happening regardless of truth. I get cornered into these arguments alot especially when I don't want to the Xbox fanboys biggest weapon is ignorance they haven't known anything of the PS3 since 2008 possibly earlier "PS3 has like no games first thing out of their mouths" or "It's too expensive isn't it like 400$?" "CoD is a XBox exclusive" yea, I hear that all along the east coast (I travel alot). I'm not attacking you but I'm just saying there is a reason aside from sheer fandome that there are more vocal PS fans than Xbox right now we'll see in about a year from now when X1 regains some of its fans back after PS4 doesn't do it for them or whatevs.

Anyone ask me what system to get I say "what do the most of your friends have?". If there are more PS4 pre orders out there then their friends follow. Xbox 360 had the same life.

Um Xbox One does have blu ray 0_o where have you been? Xbox One is an innovating console that Slams both TV integration and great games. All PS4 has are upgraded graphics and a touch pad
djplonker  +   947d ago
yeah and every xbox one that is sold sony gets money because they share the right to blu-ray (>'.')>
True_Samurai  +   947d ago
^^^ counter activated: Sony pays Microsoft for the VC Codec on blu ray

85% in Germany for the PS4?! Gotta love my country.
