Sony's PS4 Has 7 Days to Beat Microsoft's Xbox One

Sony would seem to have the advantage. Its console is $100 cheaper than Microsoft's entry, though it did sacrifice the motion-based camera -- making it a $60 add-on accessory -- to get to that price point. Most would also agree that earlier is rather than later, especially since Microsoft isn't giving itself a lot of wiggle room by releasing its platform just a week before Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season. (Microsoft, PS4, Sony, Tag Invalid)

i agree as well Sony has the lead next gen.
theBAWSE  +   414d ago
I'd say they have a whole generation.. Microsoft have f**ked this impending generation up properly.

Far better specs
Far more preorders
Infinitely superior 1st party developers
Far more indie support
$100 cheaper
Insane deals with PS Plus every month

They already won, and they have the whole generation to humiliate the competition even further, all leading up to the Xbox brand being sold.

The way they say this almost feels like m$ is way ahead and the time is running out LOOL ohh dear.

How about: "m$ WILL HAVE the entire next gen to TRY to beat Sony"

;)

Sony sold more last gen.. And the gen before that and they will sell more this gen also, whether they take North America or not... But the way it's shapping up m$ won't have the sales in America it had last get.. I do look for the xbox to sell well but the ps4 will in fact outsell it.... Again!

It already has more pre-orders, it's like the article writer wants to pretend like the PS4 isn't already beating the Xbox One

Let's forget all those country's Sony is releasing in by themshelves. Hell you PS3 just out sold the 360.

MS better hope that week doesn't seem to long for the impluse shoppers.

5 days really Sunday to Thursday, because lot of people will be playing before Midnight (14th and after midnight the 15th
sigfredod  +   414d ago
Sony will not win in 7 days, this is just the begining, PS4 will dominate since now and will be the overall winner at the end of this generation
DirtyPimp  +   414d ago
they already won
THC CELL  +   414d ago
They beat ms them having a year head start too

Get back to me when the Xbox actually sells the most in any generation, before you begin to assume it will outsell a playstation ever.

This cat is flat out nuts. He speaks about the 360 having outsold the ps3 within a months time and he completely disregards the fact that the PS3 has more gamers playing its console versus the 360, even though the 360 had a year head start.

If a year Headstart could nit secure a victory, then how on Earth can the Bone win anything when all things are equal, or in this case releasing later, with inferior last Gen graphics and priced @ $100.00 more?

Yes, sir, you need the methadone clinic.

And gaming sites seem to be giving them even less time.

Last few days its been nothing but XB1 previews and early reviews as if next week the PS4 wasn't coming out.

Or is that just me?
FPSRUSSIA  +   414d ago
i think the reason for that is Sony already winning with more preorders and way more hype and there just trying to hope it up.
FPSRUSSIA  +   414d ago
hype not hope it up
DEEBO  +   414d ago
WOW we are on the same page it's MS pr at best,trying to take the customer eyes away from the ps4.gaming journalist at these website are nothing but paid off bastards trying to downplay the ps4 graphics vs the
X1 but if you read some of their old article's they would compare a blade of grass between the ps3 vs the 360 but know it doesn't matter.

azshorty2003  +   414d ago

No, not really.

Seven Days? The launching a week before has little to do with it! The Mind share and market awareness and over all positive press the PS4 has with Consumers greatly points to early launch successes! MS has made it easier for that to happen. Sony's PR and Overall Transparency with the PS4 has helped tremendously, Shu handling the fielded questions and concern on social media has made the PS4 even more consumer friendly and has painted the company as more approachable!

The Seven Days launch in NA won't matter, what will is the cumulative launch in more territories within 2 months of the initial NA launch versus MS 13 markets makes the win feasible...

PS4 Launch
NA -15 Nov
EU/UK/AUS/SA/LA - 29 Nov
ME - 13 Dec
Asia -15-18 Dec
Japan - 22 Dec 2014

MS XBO launch
NA/EU/UK/AUS/SA 22 Nov
Japan, Asia, Greater EU, ME - Q2 2014?

you get a better picture when you look at what territories have been announced and Sony's Launch plans are already done, all major regions are covered within 2 months of the November launch compared to MS's unnannounced tier 2 and tier 3 markets currently pegged for Second quarter 2014..

NA is very much still a wild card, even with a lower price Sony will face some stern competition after the launch dust settles, but right now the prognosis looks like Sony's machine will hold on to the top spot.

lol 7 days
Who writes these dumb azz articles?the 360 had a year to beat the wii and ps3.
a week of sales is nothing,i think sony has great shot at winning but not because they got a week jump.
if that was the case the 360 should be sitting at the head of the pack instead of being 3rd.
MysticStrummer  +   414d ago
Well the site is fool.com after all.

PS4 has been beating XB1 like a drum since the reveals.
DEEBO  +   414d ago
lol yeah seen that, it's getting to the point were i'm just done with gaming journalist and web sites that are horrible at their job.
just show me some gameplay and STFU!
KingofGambling  +   414d ago
Sony doesn't need 7 days. What is this a horror movie? a phone call and a little girl whisper 7 days? No, Sony is Walter White, "They're in the Empire Business."
Max-Zorin  +   412d ago
And in seven days the ratings for the Soap Opera known as N4G will skyrocket. I have my popcorn chips and corona ready. This site is gonna reach a new level of hilarious.
