Sony's PS4 May Beat Microsoft's Xbox One

Timing is everything when it comes to video games -- something Microsoft will learn as it ends a 32-month streak as the country's top-selling console. (PS4, Xbox One)

Launch lineup may change a few minds

Kinect may change a few minds

Dedicated servers may change a few minds

Edit: Btw I'm not dissing the Ps4 I'm just saying we don't know. We don't know how many triple A games Microsoft has in development. We know Sony has 30 new exclusives

People that enjoyed ps3 exclusives this gen are most likely going to buy the Ps4 regardless of what ships 11/15

Me I think Microsoft will have way more exclusives than they had with the 360 this time around

Me too and I was reading up on Tiled Resources and I think it could add a lot of performance to the Xbox One

They talk about putting the demanding texture loads on the hdd and freeing up the gpu to do more processing
christocolus  +   337d ago
really? i guess ill have to read it up.
Angels3785  +   337d ago
They do that on current gen....its called texture streaming. And yeah it can make big changes! It can lengthen a consoles lifespan by providing better graphics at a certain point than the console is capable off (like some great looking titles that have been coming out lately that I can't believe are current gen). But it has its limits and bandwidth from the HDD is key

Launch line up:
PS4: 31
Xbox one: 22
Preorders of launch games favor the PS4 by a mile consumers have been exposed to the launch line ups for months now. We are less than a month away from launch, nothing is going to change.
Kinect is not changing any minds.
Dedicated servers were announced on the biggest stage for gaming news this year at E3 and it did not change any minds. And we still don't know the details of the servers being used.
Stop clinging on to false hope.

kinect is worthless garbage show me a kinectless xbone then ill get it.

Kinect will change minds >_>Fighter Within(-_-) kinect ain't changing shit. Especially when causal family realize that it taking information from them for advertising yes it is don't deny it.

"MAY"??? Xb is beaten that day when Mattrick stepped on that stage...
XabiDaChosenOne  +   337d ago
May beat Microsoft's console? Let me tell you something, this goes to all of the eager Xbox one fans who thinks the Xbox one will have even the slightest chance of beating the PS4 this gen.
The PS3 was 100 dollars more expensive than the 360 at the beginning of its life cycle while launching a year later.
A few years later after beating the 360 in sales on a year by year bases we are now here were the PS3 has outsold the Xbox 360 in overall sales. This tells me that the PlayStation brand name ALONE catapulted the PS3 to victory. Based on these statics alone the Xbox one has no chance. Now we are in a position where not only is the PS4 cheaper, not only is it releasing at the same time as the Xbox one, not only has the Xbox one received the biggest consumer backlash in PR history, but they are once again facing of against the PlayStation brand. Its going to be a slaughter and I didn't even have to look at the Pre order numbers or online surveys to which pretty much indicate the same thing to come to that conclusion.
WarThunder  +   337d ago
Its useless explaining to MS fanboys. Those people are not gamers they are corporate tools... Who the hell buys a overpriced console with all of its 80 features locked behind a paywall. Forces you to buy their kinect camera. Free to play games require Xlive gold to play.

But if you criticize MS and want them to treat their fan base better, u will be called a Sony fanboy lol...

I'm disagreeing with you here on a few things. People who choose the X1 are gamers. I will be choosing the X1 at launch because I have preferred MS machines over the last 2 generations. And I can say that because I have owned all 3 previous Playstations as well as the 2 previous Xboxs. Over the course of my gaming life I have owned the following;
Atari VCS 2600,
Sega Master System 2,
Segam Megadrive (Genesis) 2,
Nintendo Gameboy,
Nintendo Gameboy Colour,
Nintendo 64,
Sega Dreamcast,
Nintendo DS,
Nintendo DSI,
Playstation,
Playstation 2,
Playstation 3,
Xbox,
Xbox 360,
Nintendo Wii, oh and a gaming PC. So I think I can safely say I AM a gamer.

And second why is everyone assuming we are being forced to buy the Kinect? Personally I want it, and I own the garbage that is the original. Just because there are people who would rather spend more on a different console than you doesnt make them wrong.
And in case you are wondering, the answer is yes I probably will get a PS4 down the line too, however if the last gen is anything to go by it'll just sit on the shelf collecting dust whilst I play Xbox, only difference being I wont need to dust it off to play my blu rays.

@ stuart i have owned more consoles than you, ps4 ftw.

obelix01  +   337d ago
Another Sony fanboy bait article. Notice these are ALWAYS opinion articles. Rest assured there will only be more articles like this & they will only increase as launch day approaches.
vallentiin  +   337d ago
only way this is going to happen is if xbox comes up with tons of exclusive games that tops the ps4 exclusives witch i doubt .
- xbox one has tv integratin ( ps4 has internet tv ( no cable box needed )
- xbox one has kinect ( ps4 has the camera that does 90% of the same things ) and the kinect 1.0 failed why would 2.0 succed ?
chrissx  +   337d ago
Seeing how Ps3 eventually outsold 360 despite a year gap, I believe Ps4 will be #1 hands down cuz it has so much momentum than Ps3 did.+ theres no 1yr gap this time around.

Grave  +   337d ago
I agree, and ps4 is $100 cheaper. That's the biggest thing for me. If the xbox one (without kinect) was the same price as ps4 I think it would be a much harder choice for gamers.

Titanfall is going to sell thousands upon thousands of XB1's for Microsoft. Don't overlook that fact also.
Majin-vegeta  +   337d ago
Lol if people people who wanna play it already own a PC or 360.I doubt they would go out and fork the money for a X1.Plus its gonna come to PS4 later down the road.
cactusjack  +   337d ago
titanfall will be in the bargain bin within 6 months,

Im not really fussed who 'beats' who, to be honest the thing that bothers me the most is the games. if sony sell 1 million units but provides amazing games i enjoy, il still be pleased, and same goes for microsoft and xbone
Steven3657  +   337d ago
"May" is an understatement

Early days. On the long run it will depend on the quality of real exclusives & which console has longer legs.

Sony's PS4 May Beat Microsoft's Xbox One

Very few things are 100%. But this is far better than even a safe bet.
KillrateOmega  +   337d ago
The PS4 will definitely beat the XB1 in the early game. Of this, I'm very confident.

The XB1 may catch up later, but it's less likely than more.
DigitalRaptor  +   337d ago
Anyone thinking otherwise is in denial.

This gen, the PS3 launched a year later than the 360, at $599, with a bare bones online network, with poor marketing, with an overwhelming media bias against Sony, with supposedly "no games", with a format that was supposedly doomed, accused of having inferior versions of multiplatform games.

And it still outsold the 360 for the majority of its time in the market, and has already outsold the 360 in total units. And had better exclusive games.

In the upcoming gen, Sony has none of these problems and has the better support, more pre-orders, more powerful hardware, better multiplatform games, better price, positive PR (Microsoft had a PR disaster, and still need to convince the majority of people that they are fair and not an anti-consumer corporation), great marketing, comparable network and services, a more flexible, fair and valuable service in PS+, no free features hidden behind a paywall, and almost no media bias. If Sony outsold and outperformed Microsoft with the aforementioned problems with PS3, they will absolutely annihilate with the PS4.

I cant see a situation where the Xbox One will ever have a larger install base than the PS4.
gamer2013  +   337d ago
I disagree. The X1 offers more functionality, better games and superior online there's no beating around the bush here. Sony will get the jump on MS in sales at the beginning but sales will eventually even out once people see what their missing out on with the X1.
Majin-vegeta  +   337d ago
Lol if the PS3 that launched 1 year later and the most famous quote from people "PS3 HAS NO GAMEZ" and it being more expensive can beat out the 360.You really think the PS4 $100 cheaper releasing before the Xbone won't beat it??Lol GTFO you forget their is still bad publicity surrounding this POS console and more expensive for cheaper hardware.

Bad publicity over what? MS reversed everything that people disagreed with or did you not get that memo?
DigitalRaptor  +   337d ago
@ gamer2013

Microsoft still has DRM in the console when it ships that you need to patch out with an Internet connection. Why is it still there? one can only speculate. Considering their long-term vision hasn't changed and they're committed to it, what do you expect?

Microsoft's Yusuf Mehdi went to the Association of National Advertisers Masters of Marketing Conference to try an sell the way in which Kinect gathers data about its users, to marketers.
http://adage.com/article/sp...
---

Microsoft's designed the XB1's dashboard with advertisements in mind.
http://www.sticktwiddlers.c...

This ties in with the Kinect, data mining on you in your living room so that Microsoft can both use that data to try and sell you ads on your dashboard to make more money from you (even though they already make money from your XBL subscription and when you buy their games), but so that they can sell that personal data to marketing companies. The Xbox brand has become a greedy ad-driven business clusterfuck.
---

Microsoft charges you for 95% of the FREE features that are a part of XBL Gold. 81 features to be precise. http://www.youtube.com/watc... This is absolute disgraceful, greedy treatment of people who have supported their P2P service for over a decade.
---

Microsoft reversed a lot of the stuff that people disagreed with, because of how they could see it would affect their business going ahead. They would've steamrolled ahead with their years and years of conscious anti-consumer planning, had people not been so vocal. So supporting them is still shady and foolish, taking into consideration everything about their vision going forward, and how they've treated consumers in the past.

There are still people out there who, sensibly, won't support a corporation that would put into action the things Microsoft attempted to do to gamers. That is where the bad publicity exists, and there are still plenty of people out there that think things haven't changed for XB1.

Lol, you're seriously delusional. How about instead of running your mouth (or keyboard) with fanboy delusions, you take a look at the facts:

PS4 is cheaper; X1 has had it's image heavily tarnished by the DRM debacle; PS4 is already known to be more powerful than the X1; PS4 currently leads in preorders; PS4 has more games in development; Surveys show the PS4 being favored WAY more.

1 + 1 = 2.

Xbox One will do great...

Best online experience
TV intergration
Kinect 2.0
And of course, the games....
Say what you want. But MS has the biggest blockbuster exclusives for the Mass market. Games that really sell consoles. Like Halo and Gears. (and Gt os a racing sim and it came out once this gen so far)

I imagine next year when Halo 5 comes out, that will be as big as when Halo 3 came out.

But.... Ps4 has the huge advantage this gen that will most likely end up selling more then Ms.. And those are.
Price

People you still need cable. In regards to cable x1 is nothing more then a fancy cable box. Only trouble I see is Microsoft cannot make quality hardware. Sony can. I've had every Sony system launch day the ps3 60gb lasted me 6yrs before death and my launch PS2 with granturismo 3 is just starting to go now. After well over a decade and 100s of teenage hours on the socom games. I've had 5 360s since launch. Just saying

Xbox live gold is a paywall. False. Xbox live gold is the gateway to a far superior online matchmaking service. Ps community deride gold members for having to pay for an online service, " ours is free" and rightly so as it totally inferior to gold, " but our free games are better " yeah but you don't own them, they are locked behind a paywall. Ps+ = love film. Xbox FTW.
AbortMission  +   337d ago
Lmfao, congrats. You can keep old irrelevant games like Halo 3 and Ass Creed 2. While I can play dozens of games, plat them and move on. PS+ is leap years ahead of this live free game program. You know it. I know it. We all know it, drone.

Oh, we're all jealous that you own two games everyone already owns Lol
