good sign :) i seriously hope sony wins this gen
mcstorm  +   292d ago
Why? Ide rather all 3 have a successful one as it is better having compression than not. If it was not for MS doing well the start of the 360/PS3 gen the PS3 would never of been the console it is today.

For me I want all 3 to do well and as it stands now all 3 have some amazing games on there consoles and the only way to have the complete gaming experience with home consoles is to own them all.

If anything I want to see less of year on year release's of the same games like NFS, AC, BF, COD ect and fresh IP's.

Bubbles man. Great post. To bad we dont see more of this sort of thing. I like sony but want all 3 to be successful so these companies don't get comfy and fall behind. If sony didnt push forward then I think we all know what kind of gaming drm world we would all be living in a few weeks.

Competition makes for a robust market!
mcstorm  +   292d ago
Lol by the disagrees I have got it really shows what type of people are on this site and they want the same IP's year after year.

People disagree because they don't necessarily want all three to be successful(although it's really just Microsoft). Has nothing to do with wanting the same IPs. And there's plenty of reason for why folks don't want that.

There was an assault on gaming this year, perpetrated by one manufacturer in particular. The vast majority of gamers were not fond of that, and it seems they don't care for that company's actions within the industry, in general. Yes, this company has funded some great games, but they've also been first in line when it comes to making anti-consumer moves since they arrived.

So while people don't necessarily want their brand to disappear, they would like it if someone else took over. But, barring that, many folks recognize that as long as that brand sees a certain measure of success, its parent company will stay in gaming. And as long as that company stays within gaming, what almost happened with that console will remain a threat to the industry.

Hope that helps.

On topic: Twitter alone can't show much of anything. At best, it shows intent to buy is at 2:1. Most likely, it just shows that interest in the PS4 is twice what it is in the XB1.
ChrisW  +   292d ago
No, it's based on the individual's maturity.
OlgerO  +   292d ago
The only thing that the xboxone has going for it that is better then the PS4 is the UI, and nobody buys a gaming console to look at the UI
asmith2306  +   292d ago
Haven't used either UI so how can you tell? I actually preferred the simplicity of the XMB on PS3 over 360's dash. No ads, etc.

I'm curious to see sales of 15 November.
T2  +   291d ago
People can say competition is great all they want but talk is cheap ... Im not buying any inferior tech just so I can support healthy competition but other,people can be my guest ill applaud you for it.
kcuthbertson  +   292d ago
I think MS should consider themselves lucky if it's only 2-1..

MS really did a piss poor job of keeping its fan base even remotely happy. The only people I know getting an XOne are two super die hard XBox kids who think MS can do no wrong.
Drewidian  +   292d ago
The PS4 WILL outsell the Xbox One up to 3:1, which is great if you are into the PS4, until MS announces its partnerships with the Cable and Satellite companies with deals like "agree to a 2 year contract and get a free or low priced($99 - $199) Xbox One". Then the Xbox one will overtake and outsell the PS4 by a long shot since there are significantly more people who watch TV and would willing to jump in for such a low price. Once the cable/satellite companies start pushing it, it won't be a contest.

If MS gets that casual TV market, Fitness market, Skype to kick in to daily adoption, and gets devs to make apps and games work across all of its ecosystem, it may be able to do what the Wii did in getting average users to adopt en mass. The gamer market is at best maybe 200M regular users, but there's far more other people who watch TV and do other things besides gaming.
LeCreuset  +   292d ago
Then Sony says, "Oh yeah, cable companies? We're putting all of our films out exclusively in theaters and Netflix. No cable." I'm just saying there's a lot of behind the scenes stuff that goes on with these deals.
Drewidian  +   292d ago
@LeCreuset

So... You're telling me that Sony Pictures (different from Sony Entertainment) would all of a sudden, stop licensing their movies(and the millions that go with it) to any cable company working with Microsoft just to support their gaming division? I think not despite Japanese culture or company solidarity.
meatnormous  +   292d ago
Directv will not partner with microsoft to offer such deals. We dont even support windows 8 for genie go. Directv is more in bed with sony and samsung than microsoft
T2  +   291d ago
Telus cable here in Canada have already given out 360 s with cable for free and it didnt boost sales markedly
stavrami  +   292d ago
I would say 4-1 would be mote accurate
karl  +   292d ago
Lets hope not... we need an xbox on the market.

2 to 1 is enough to humilliate ms but keep them playing for now.. maybe steambox can replace them in the future
sigfredod  +   292d ago
we dont, pc steam and wiiU will do
stavrami  +   292d ago
i know "competition" keeps people striving for greatness but also bankruptcy does that, sony's money troubles have lead them more to greatness this gen than worrying about the opposition imo

WiiU? Thats getting dominated 10/1 by current gen sales.. Cant imagine how bad its gonna tank to nex gen right now..
Bennibop  +   292d ago
I think that is best case scenario in my local Game they have said its 5:1 in favour of PS4
Kevlar009  +   292d ago
It will be interesting to see the results. While the PS4 is the overall better system on paper (price, paid online service, volume and debateable quality of exclusives) you would be foolish to underestimate the power of the Xbox brand to the average person

I predict gamers will pick PS4 decisively over X1, but the wild card is the general consumer base. Don't expect MS to take this lying down on the advertisment end.

Twitter data shows PS4 will outsell XB 12 to 1.

There you go. I corrected the spacing.
sigfredod  +   292d ago
More like 4>1 ratio, lol
BobBelcher  +   292d ago
Not really surprising since the X1 is releasing in less countries.
Gamer1982  +   292d ago
Still same amount of consoles. The only reason its less countries is server restrictions and regulations on bundling Kinect. They are releasing more Xboxs in US than Sony releasing PS4 in US so be prepared for the xbox is winning articles when it initially may look like its outselling the ps4 as MS put most their stock into the US whereas Sony shipped it worldwide.
pyramidshead  +   292d ago
Nice work. The real test is whether it will keep that ratio or not.
NewAgeisHere  +   292d ago
2:1 in USA if MS is lucky.........rest of the world is already looking more like 5:1......
TomahawkX  +   292d ago
PS4 will start off very strong, that much is given but I think MS will gain some ground once their big exclusives come out. Sony will have a lead for sure but I doubt it will stay 2:1 for the entire generation.
Bennibop  +   292d ago
So according to your logic only Microsoft will be releasing any exclusives! Remember Sony has more big exclusives to announce we have not seen anything from there best developer (ND) as yet.
Ocsta  +   292d ago
@ SEPTIC Every console should do well, for the simple fact that competition breeds excellence, and to prove that mobile and tablet gaming is NOT the future. That being said, Sony were the underdogs last gen, Sony fans have a right to be chuffed that the PS4 is looking so amazing. Its almost exactly like preferring one sports team over another, don't take it so seriously ;)
meatnormous  +   292d ago
I think the one will see a price drop within a year.

I feel like the days of PS2 are returning!
amodestoccasion  +   292d ago
Sony's PS4 marketing has been superb so far, and while I don't have a preference for either the Xbox or PS4, Sony seems to be making the better argument. Personally, I'm just happy some new hardware is out and games will continue to look and perform better.
