Sony's PS4 Has Fifty Percent Lead Over Microsoft's Xbox One, Says Strategy Analytics Survey

Sony's PS4 will have the edge over Microsoft's Xbox One in the new games console battle which will erupt later this year according to feedback from Strategy Analytics' latest ConsumerMetrix survey. According to the report, "Games Consoles: Purchase Intention Index Q2 2013", 14.2 percent of consumers are very or somewhat likely to buy a PS4 within the next twelve months compared to 9.5 percent who will buy an Xbox One. If the results were reflected in sales data this would imply that sales of PS4s would be nearly fifty percent higher than Xbox One. The survey interviewed a representative population sample of more than 6000 respondents across the US and Europe in June 2013. (PS4, Xbox One)

yeah.. No self-publishing, DRM, forced Kinect, etc.

This here 'war' is about who can manufacture the most consoles at this stage in the lifecycle. Both will continue to sell out. Both consoles think they have the early edge, Gamescom could be the deicider.
Mikelarry  +   927d ago
MS seems to be adapting their strategy so i doubt we would ever see a clear winner even after gamescom. if the article below is to be true ms is getting even more competitive

Heres how far ahead PS4 is, 3 bundels in the top 20, while XBOX has its first bundle at #51. lol
FITgamer  +   927d ago
The YTD list gives a better idea of where they sit compared to each other. Yeah it's only one retailer, but a huge one. 3 PS4 SKU vs 1 Xbox One in the top 100. Also if you consider both launch additions are sold out and the PS4 sits 3 positions ahead of Xbox One can only mean there were more launch PS4 allotted than Xbox One.

War does not determine who is right - only who is left. ~Bertrand Russell

This console war should mean nothing to us, as consumers, because the end result is inconsequential. It's a bunch of big numbers (read money) made off of us. It is the companies that wage this theoretical war. We are just the casualties.
That being said...PS4....oooh...Xbox s 4 Life!!! Lol

with gaming who knows, MS supposedly will outship ps4 2-3 times this holiday says other analyst. for god sakes the wii won last gen, who cares which console wins as long as you play the one you like?

Idk where the f*ck people keep getting that the Wii one this gen??A gen isnt over until all 3 systems stop being supported.
live2play  +   927d ago
You mean just like a race isn't over until everyone crosses the finish line?
your right, but that's why there's 1st,2nd,3rd place etc.

Wii was first. Deal with it ;)
insomnium2  +   926d ago

Ummm... we would need a set distance or time for that. In addition we would need a simultanious launch for all participants. Yeah I'm pretty sure you are full of it.

PS3 will be number one once all the consoles are sold and production stopped. I think it's you who need to "deal with it" since you seem kinda butthurt over this piece of info. It's been obvious from the get go how things would end with x360 and PS3 atleast. Now that Wii has almost stopped it's easy to see PS3 winning this gen. All they need is 2-3 years worth of time on the storeshelf.

After that PS3 will keep on being supported most likely and it will end up next to the PS2 with 130-150 million sold. This is common knowledge when we know the hisrtory of these consoles/companies.

"If the results were reflected in sales data this would imply that sales of PS4s would be nearly fifty percent higher than Xbox One"

They took a survey of 6000 and people are acting like this is a sure thing. Mind you the survey was only for seeing which one you were more interested in.
Hicken  +   926d ago
6000 is a pretty significant sample size, honestly.

And the one you're more interested in is fairly reflective of the one you'd buy first, or at all if you could only buy one. I mean, no one would say, "I'm more interested in the XB1, but I'd buy a PS4 first." That's just not logical.

And no one's acting like it's a sure thing. Even in the line you quote, they use "if" and "imply," indicating a higher probability, not a certainty.
YNWA96  +   927d ago
Does anyone know exactly where the survey was taken? I did a survey in my office here, and 75% said they were getting X1, because we play online anyway, and love Halo, and COD, where its best to play on Xbox live. I do not know about the other guys next door.

THC CELL: Exactly, fortunate enough to be getting both. I just want games... games games games. Not stupid to miss out because its another machine. All those valiantly defending a machine, seems pointless, the only losers in that are themselves... I love God of War, Unchartered... Gears, Halo... why the hell would I not want to play them because its on a different machine???!!!!

JohnDread  +   927d ago many estimates from "analysts" are we going to get? Those numbers are only relevant to people who are actually involved in business. The general public will get the sales numbers as soon as they are officially released (most of the sales are still to happen).
Roper316  +   927d ago
I'm only getting a PS4 next gen and will do some PC gaming as well as a back up and change of pace. I personally will never buy another Xbox branded item again. after I finish up Witcher 2 & Geow:J I'm boxing up my 360 and packing it away and will be officially done with MS & Xbox as far as console gaming goes.
MizTv  +   927d ago
I gave up on Xbox in 08
Best thing I ever did
Plus most of the 360 games I wanted to play I got for pc
solidworm  +   927d ago
So what happened to that analyst who said the Bone would outship the ps4 3- 1? Is he lying in a ditch somewhere with a bottle of Jack in his hand and puke all down his muddied suit?

Solid, good example of, if its MS it must be BS, if its Sony It must be Greatness!!! On this site now I do not care, just having a good laugh.... wind up some if possible....
NeoTribe  +   926d ago
Doesn't help the fact that microsoft has been sneakin past straight anwsers, trying to rob consumer rights and outright lieing and doing crazy pr tactics to try and stay relevant. Sony has been extremely straight forward and honest right from the getgo. Kinda like this cloud crap. They want you to think the cloud can maje the xbox one as strong as 4 boxs in one. Thats pr bullshit. So that's why nobody believes there bs.
Petro  +   926d ago
Hi Paul, sorry, but I had to check if you work for Microsoft after reading most of your comment history, but I can tell now that you do not seems to have any sort of connections with Microsoft. But what I found that you like football, airplanes and most certainly Xbox, even tho you have been tempted by PlayStation. :P Oh and erase your account from few of those nastier dating sites. :O
cheetorb  +   927d ago
Numbers would have been different if MS actually made a true successor to the 360. I know I would have been interested but now...not so much.
Death  +   927d ago
14.2 vs 9.5

14.2 is 32% more than 9.5. This means for every 10 PS4's sold, approx 7 XboxOne will sell.

PS3 sold 13.3 million consoles annually compared to Xbox360's 11.4 million. That is 15% more PS3's a year give or take.

The survey is saying that Microsoft has lost 15% "intent" to date on a system that is months away from launch. I wonder who pays for these surveys?

Playstation 4 me!!
Funnymonkey013  +   927d ago
Here is the thing PS4 is all around the better system 4 many reasons 1 it has better specks wich is more future proof console. 2 it has way better and I mean wayyy better 1rst party devs then X1 when it comes to games. 3 PS plus as in right now kills live when it comes to intertinment free full games that people want to play like SR3 DX human Unchartec 3 and many more huge savings in DLCS Avatars movies and themes and it will get only better with PS4. And I'm not just being fanboy cause I also have a 360 and the only good thing about is better online servers 4 games and party chat but that will all change with PS4 and well live is pretty much useless compared to ps plus unless Ms does something similar to ps plus on X1 wich I highly don't think they will as MS Luvs to rip people off. In my opinion I don't c any reason to own a X1 then PS4 unless u care about the TV stuff. and controlling things on TV without controller. All in all to me PS4 is made 4 games first and everything else like TV stuff music r second where x1 is more 4 people that like controlling things without controller and everything else but games comes last.

You need better controller and online services than Better hardware/games right?

What you are going to do without better games and only with controller and online services alone?

MultiConsoleGamer  +   926d ago
We just did comic-con and 90% of the buzz on the show floor was in favor of the PS4.

MS still hasn't shook off the negativity they earned at E3. Consumers are still confused about DRM (a few actually told me they still believed 360 won't play used games.) And a TON of people said they simply don't want Kinect in their living room. More than anything else Kinect is harming the Xbox One.
