Pre-Launch Shopping Interest Suggests Sony’s PlayStation 4 May Have the Merriest Holiday

Over the past four months, online shopping interest in the PS4 has consistently outpaced that of the Xbox One by a margin of over 2 to 1. Online at least, three out of four next-generation console shoppers have considered the PS4, with 61% considering ONLY the PS4. Contrast that to the 39% that have shopped for the Xbox One and the 27% that shopped the Xbox One exclusively. (PS4, Xbox One)

most powerful console
sony's 1st/2nd party
free games on ps+
100$ cheaper

it's pretty clear that sony wasn't playing around with ps4

also it's very interesting that only 27% of US gamers want XB1
and 61% of US gamers want PS4
and that's what would be XBOX's home turf

but i can understand why

The king is back on his throne. Not that Sony ever left but this will surely put the doubters back in their place. Last gen was a bloodbath for Sony. Glad to see they've regained their composure. KZ can't come soon enough!

Imagine. PS3 passes Wii in 2016 while PS4 is dominating! Sony could win 4 straight gens! Regardless of if you support them or not (a man is a Sony and Nintendo fan and has a Wii and will get a WiiU next year along with maybe a 3DS) a fan must acknowledge how impressive that will be.

Totally agree, that would be some achievement indeed.

Winter is coming...and so is the ps4!

Jaqen_Hghar  +   273d ago
A man just bought a DS4 to use on limited PS3 games. That's how hyped he is
TheFutureIsBlue  +   273d ago
You should buy an xbone for kinect 2 just to see if it recognizes you when you change your face =o
Jaqen_Hghar  +   273d ago
A man would have to pay to change his username too. A man likes to do the watching.
MasterCornholio  +   273d ago
Wow so I guess all the polls and preorder numbers were precursors to this information.

I knew that the PS4 was going to be popular but I thought it would only have 55% of sales this holiday season. 61% is a much more impressive figure.

Not to mention the big guns haven't been announced yet

Did anyone really expect ANYTHING otherwise? (exclude fannybois in denial).I think if SONY could handle the demand and they reopen pre-orders for day one delivery today then millions more will still order now!

Truth is both consoles aren't worth it unless you are
hardcore. #Istillhavecod crowed.. Will stall next gen consoles if people can still play it.They better hope titan fall is the true next gen game that scream buy a xbox and it isnext gen.I however doubt it,the Ps4 won't have a real exclusive till infamous, yet need multi player uncomfortably for the none core fan. Yet ps4 price will be attractive enough to make mom think about it.

Im used to KZ being underrated by now. But saying its not a real next gen exclusive game with native 1080p and steady 60 fps', just gtfo.
MasterCornholio  +   273d ago
Killzone isn't a real exclusive?

WTF does that mean?

Not surprising.
Sven Benoit  +   273d ago
Honestly, how many of these type articles am I gonna keep seeing on this site. I'm getting a ps4 like next man but damn....smh
Ezz2013  +   273d ago

No I'm just saying it seems like at least once a day on this site I see an article talking about how polls show more people prefer ps4 over xbone
urwifeminder  +   273d ago
Lol more advertising on the xb1 page hey n4g.
MasterCornholio  +   273d ago
Hey you asked for the information and now you reject it because it doesn't favor the Xbox One?

That's just sad. As you can see a third of people will only get the Xbox One while 61% will get a PS4 only 12% are getting both though.

You will thank me later.

Glad to be of service to you.

Never asked for anything just seems everyday so many pics of ps4 on the xb1 page may as well not have them segregated I never even visit the sony pages on this site only pc ,360,xb1,wii u I will not be thanking you at all.
Ponchao87  +   273d ago
I still see Ps4 out shinning the Xbox One but the marketing on both consoles have been exciting, this will be considered a console war reminiscent to the Genesis and Super Nintendo, the console war is on and glad to be fortunate to have both systems on there launches!
