Analyst: Xbox One will outsell PlayStation 4 at launch

"While many forecasts still give an edge to Sony/PS4 in North America sales, we continue to expect similar or even slightly higher sales of Xbox One by the end of the launch window," Sebastian told investors. (PS4, Xbox One)

It does not matter how many countries you launch in, but how many consoles you have available to purchase... All reports have been that Sony is pushing out more units, so by default they should sale more...... They can't even keep up with demand.

Halo is gonna do as good as it always does to tbh you wont see a difference halo fans are gonna buy halo plain and simple some new adopters sure but that's it.
Quantum Break from the people who brought us alan wake good game but was nothing spectacular so i wouldnt hail it just yet maybe when you see 5 minutes of gameplay.
Titanfall that might be your only argument here tbh unless it turns out to be bad only online games tend to have a ruff start remember simcity.

Now my question is whats happening next year again?:/

This is inaccurate as all hell. Even if the Xbone sells out, PS4 is launching in 2.5 times more countries with more than double preorders in every location to include normally Xbox dominated US and UK. Not saying Xbox One won't do well, but by common logic shows Sony has placed the PS4 in a very huge advantage point. On top of that the more expensive PS3 caught up and out sold the 360 by almost 2 million more units after the 360's major head start. With the early release in the US, higher specs, and more affordable price, I see only huge success coming with PS4 next month.

PS3 total global sales will leave 360 sales in the dirt even more, same for PS4 too for the rest of the consoles' lives.

Seriously though if anybody has any reasons as to why Xbone could ever catch up to sales on PS4 when the last console had a year headstart and was just a tad more popular than the Xbone you might say (lol), then please, tell us why.

He based it on Ebay price difference. Lets test his logic with a actual example of this.
Lets look at the PS3/xbox360 launch and the ebay prices then.

When PS3 launched it was actually selling for $2,000 on ebay. What happened 6 weeks later there where plenty of stock setting on shelves, and xbox360 lead just like the prelaunch numbers told us it would.

Same will happen this time to except prelaunch numbers tell us it will be Sony's machine not just leading, but dominating.

Maybe this.

Restrict or heavily tax the money to Japan, China and other international nations but allow domestic transactions to have different rules/limits. I added the link for reference. I'm really not sure but I know a lot of transactions will be limited in a few months. From my understanding this shouldn't affect big companies but there isn't enough to go on.

Also that big debt ceiling in USA comes up again early next year. What if these guys took it to the next level and actually defaulted. In any case a potential US dollar crash wouldn't be good for the gamers or console sales.

I'm also skeptical that GridEx II(just before PS4 launch) won't have unforeseen issues in it's simulated mass power outage of Mexico, Canada and USA.

A lot is riding on 13-17 of November 2013. Much more is going on then the launch of PS4. In all seriousness it's been hard to discuss gaming in general.

Anyway, I'm just throwing out possible issues that could happen in USA. These could seriously effect 2014 console sales etc. Lets try and look at the bigger picture of what's going on in the world. It's simply not all cookies and cream.

Send me a Private PM instead of a comment reply please I don't want this to go off topic any more my discussing these issues directly.

Triella  +   834d ago
No it's just a question of logic : Xbox One will outsell PS4 at launch but only because the latter comes first in the US and later in Europe while Xbox One as only one launch date inbetween. But by PS4 european launch everything will get back to normal.

And I can easily predict that by December 31st Sony will have sold more than double what MS will = 3 million vs 1.3~1.4 million.

Wanna know what I find funny? When ps3 came out at $500-$600 you xbox fanboys were using that against sony fans as something wrong with it. Now you will be buying a $500 VCR with dated hardware, lack of games, and thousands of cool apps. Have fun with that. I'd rather have a slick looking platform with the same games as you along with some nice launch exclusives on top of it....for $400 and a better online experience. Sony focused on the gaming aspect this go around. MS focused on the stupid apps like twitch and the lame motion sensor technology. Thanks but I'm good.
MarkusMcNugen  +   834d ago
Yeah, fanboys get out of control but you are just as much of the problem as the xbox fanboys. You just equated an Xbox One to a $500 VCR which is just stupid, and then claim the PS4 will have a better online experience which is subjective at best. Not to mention you insinuate that Xbox One doesn't have any launch exclusives.

To sum up, its people like you who are the problem.

Death  +   834d ago
The author was using ebay markup as a way to guage demand. The Xbox One is getting 60% markup to PS4's 50%. Taking a quick look at ebay it looks like both see an average of $250 mark up in buy it nows. This is actually the opposite of what the author found. The fluctuation in PS4 prices is much greater with some asking much higher prices than I seen for Xbox One.

In short from what I can see and what the author seen it is pretty clear using ebay as a way to guage demand is stupid at best. Either he shouldn't be paid for that analysis or I should. I'm leaning towards neither of us should be paid for looking on ebay. Props to him for getting a check and me being stuck living in my moms glass basement. Thank god she took my bucket of rocks I found on the beach away.

And gamestop had a notice up in blue writing. Preorders after 5th of September is not guaranteed at launch after this date!

This either means there sold out two months before November or there is not enough XB1'S out there for everyone on launch date.

I think the PS4 will sell lot more consoles at launch, mind you, but Microsooft is not struggling to sell their console.

I reckon they'll both sell out before Christmas, however based on pre-order, PS4 will have sold more (assuming it continues to outsell the competition).

if $599 price point
hard to develop for
beginning of PSN which wasn't great

Its possible and only because there could possibly be more xboxes in America this holiday. There is a reason MS held back to certain countries. There won't be any in stores available as those who cannot get PS4s this holiday will probably end up forking out for an xbox instead. Of course If both Sony and MS release the same amount of consoles MS ain't got a prayer.

"The conjecture is backed up by data from eBay listings, which shows Xbox One mark-ups 60 percent north of the console's $500 price tag whilst those of PS4 are just a tick lower at roughly 50 percent more than its respective $400 asking price"

I do not understand this reasoning.

Supply has an adverse reaction on price. It's not demand, as PS4 is polling higher in all regions. AKA low supply means higher price. If the xbox one is in lower supply, how would it sell more than ps4? Analyst is stupid.

To me it sounds like he isn't factoring in supply and demand. I haven't looked, but he would have to take into consideration how many consoles are available. PS4 seems to have went into production weeks ahead of Xbox One. If there are less Xbox Ones to be had, it's no wonder the price could be higher.

I don't see how anyone can look at game pre-order numbers and figure Xbox would match or exceed PS4 sales. Xbox has arguably the better launch line-up, but PS4 still has more game pre-sales.

Of course retailers will have a hard time keeping stock on the shelf. It depends how much stock both Sony and Microsoft have shipped out. And also its a new piece of technology and people go goo goo for new technology Apple knows this well when it comes to the Iphone. And sales between the PS4 and XB1 are going to be hard to predict right now because both consoles are brand new and what it comes down to is what can the console provide for me as the player and what are the games coming out to it.

Those lay people know nothing about the things we talk about on here and certainly here in the uk I can see them jumping for the One out of nothing but brand awareness. Many of my non "gamer" friends fully believe the One will have the control everything and everything is intergrated dream working on day 1! I try and tell them they will be disapointed if they think the media stuff is going to work this side of 2015. Advertising works.

On another note: maybe they are including all of the Xbox Ones mountain dew and whatever other random US junk foods are giving away every 2 minutes.

If they really are giving one away every two minutes for a month thats half a million units!!!???!!! there must be a catch to that!

edit - found it, ok its not for a month. its for a 5 hour window on what looks like 7-14 different days its a bit confusing.

There are gamers and there are casuals. Gamers are the people who read up and keep up to date with what goes on in the gaming sphere. Casuals don't and typically just get a console because of word of mouth. A lot of gamers won't buy the Xbone, but there's a high chance that a lot of casuals will simply because they had the 360 before. Those casuals might see the PS4 as "too foreign" for them too (not because it's a japanese console, but because of the controller and interface. It's simply different from xbox and what they're used to). The Xbone will probably sell well in the US...cause after all...The Xbone is a console by Americans and FOR Americans.

This is all just based on Mights, Chances, and Maybes. We all think that the ps4 will outsell the xbone, but you never know what could happen. For all that could happen, people might start picking up the Wii-u!

Will do what... Hahahahahahahaha. Not going to happen. Not even in the US market worse yet globally.

Both consoles will sell well, it don't matter what surveys they do online because that ain't going to be the vast amount of people buying them.

People need to just get over the fact that people will buy what they like, i'm getting Xbox first and i'm happy, my money and I ain't going to let anyone sway me because they have a lot of hate built up.

Happy gaming what ever you decide to buy people.

We all know the ps4 is the one to get but we still don't know which way the casuals will go.
For all we know the 2 million preorders for ps4 could be followed by 4 million mums, dads and grans all wanting xbones for the kiddies.

just on the hype alone and larger country list its much more logical to presume that ps4 will sell more and lead the roost for a while. it makes no sense for the x1 to lead with the negative press and in 13 countries.

I'm getting an Xbox One and I totally disagree with this... But that does not mean that the Xbox One has a good amount of pre orders.

MS has already stated that xb1 is ahead of xbox360 preorders. I don't know if they will beat ps4 but gamers are realizing that xb1 has the stronger lineup and features. It's not gonna be the blowout people are expecting and with the watchdogs and driveclub delays this hurts their preorders even more.

this is going to be really exciting to anxious to see how things play out.

I have nothing against XB1 but you can't use watchdogs against PS4 alone. It is a XB1 game as well. So the loss of Watchdogs hurts both houses. As for XB1 preorders being sold out. I have said it before i can still walk into my local Frys Electronics and order one. but everywhere i look i can't find a PS4.

I will eventually get both consoles - the first being a PS4, however I am not impressed with their launch titles. I have to say, XB1's launch looks a bit more appealing only because I'm a diehard KI fan.
