The PS4 stole the show from its competitor, Microsoft’s Xbox One, by having many pros that overcame its cons by miles.
I think that sony are trying to create a console for everyone. Appealing to hardcore and casual gamers. I think that's what it has over the xbox than anything. Sony have games for children (i.e knack and octodad) and games for older audiences (i.e killzone and infamous). Though i have to say that another appealing thing is definitely gaikai. I mean with that people coming over from xbox won't just get PS4 games, but all PS games. I hope sony go a step further and stream ps3 and 2 saves, so if i go on infamous 1 on ps4 i can continue from my place on the ps3
I don't care if it prevailed or not. I just want to own one & play it, because it seems to be the only next gen console wholly dedicated to gaming and not advertising/data mining.
I can't wait for the PS4. The only thing that could possibly make the console any better for me is if they announced a Shenmue game.
oh god that title....give this one an hour :P
It didn't have any competition,that's why. xD
I think I'm actually falling in love with the word PS4
Son, PS4 is not a word.
@rusty515 "Son, PS4 is not a word." Sorry dad,
It is now, lol.
I think it will be funny when Xbox games and multi-plats sell better on the Xbox. I can't wait for those. Just so I can watch all these dumb articles and big Mouth fanboys cry
We have to look at the facts Jimmy. That's how it was with this generation. But let's take A walk down memory lane shall we? A. The PS3 came out a year after the 360. Which gave the 360 a one year head start on their install base. B. The PS3 was priced incredibly high. Which caused the 360 to have MUCH better sales for the first three years. Now, little Jimmy, it's 2013. The PS4 is $100 cheaper and it comes out the same time as the Xbone. Do you need help solving the equation?
Make all the stupid comments you want bud. You know im right. I don't care how cool or witty you try to sound on the Internet.
@warewolfSS: Now, now Jimmy. You shouldn't talk to your elders like that. I might have to take away your 360. You wouldn't want that would you? The PS4 will be more successful. It is what it is Jim. No need for the smart attitude.
LOL i couldnt help but to read that out loud in a calm fatherly voice!! Bubbles
@ warewolfSS And where were you when the Xbone still had the DRM feature? Hiding in the bushes waiting i presume.
Lol warewolf I love how I prove you wrong. In every section you post in. Multi might sell better on x1 but what does that matter? Once again just like the past 2 gens Sony will have more and better exclusives that all of us that get a ps4 for. Enjoy halo 5,6,7,8,9 and forza 5,6,7,8,9 etc I'll enjoy my constant stream of new and returning exclusive over the SPAN of its life cycle
PS4 after 7 years - 182 million
Xbox One after 7 years - 27 million tops
XO is going to lose 2/3 of its built base this gen. It cannot possibly compete.
Same launch date
drm sour ppl
100 more expensive
1st party studios lacking
you are not too smart if you think ps4 is going to sell even close to that in 7 years...lol mS has shown more 1st party titles than sony so i guess they must be lacking too.
Belking, Belking....sigh... If you honestly think XO is going to come even remotely close to the install base of the PS4, then no one can help you understand. You will just have to wait the first 4 years and watch the beating. BTW, MS first party studios, in no way, match up to SONY's. This is just consensus around the gaming world. It's actually laughable when you really look at them all.
@spinal The only way sony sells 182 million ps4s in 7 years is that they give half of them away. It's not gonna happen buddy. Not with ps3 and xbox 360 still on the market for a few more years. PS2 didn't even sell that much and they had less competition than now.They are lucky to even be half of that in 7 years.
@ belking I agree sony probably wont sell that many PS4's but thats all i agree on in your arguments. Shown more 1st party titles than ps4?? lets see..... Xbox one First party games: Halo 5 trailer (no gameplay or release date) Project Spark (gameplay but no release date) Forza 5 (gameplay and launch title) Ryse (gameplay and launch title) Kinect Sports Rivals (LOL) Need i remind you all the gameplay shown were running on superior pc hardware on windows 7? PS4 first party games: Killzone:SF (gameplay and launch title) DriveClub (gameplay and launch title) Knack (gameplay and launch title) Infamous:SS (gameplay and early 2014 launch) The Order:1886 (trailer and no release date) Looks like the same amount to me. There is still gamescom and TGS before we should start bragging don't you think belking?
