How many countries is the PS4 releasing in Europe next week??.

@Below thanks.If PS4 managed to sell 1 mill in just NA alone releasing in 20.places at once is gonna cause a major advantage.

I can see it now.

Xbox is going to sell 1.1 million units in 24 hours because it launches in 20 countries instead of 3, and the Xbox will proclaim themselves the winners of the console wars.

Then Sony will launch everywhere else. Greatness.

They won't say it quite like that and they know Sony would counter that statement anyway so would be pointless


So glad that you have had time to sit with both consoles over a lengthy period of time and decided that the X1 is better...oh wait you haven't have you?

One thing I hope for is for blind fanboyism to leave but that won't be very likey this gen either

what i hate with x1 is kinect, no power and looks aweful. also the fact MS obviously sees consumers as cash cows...
futureproof console with amazing first party is the most important thing to me (PS4 and Wii U)

the fact x1 is skipping most european markets is massive!! PS4 will lead the way like no console has ever done.

Really though.

Aside from problems on launch day, I haven't seen one complaint since.

I never get disconnected from psn, and downloads consistently run as fast as my 30MB can provide (at least by my counting vs watch calculation)

Why do you even give a crap how many units each one sells?
MWong  +   812d ago
I am sure the XBO will have a smooth launch. Should be very interesting to see how many units they sale on launch day since they are releasing in more countries on day 1 compared to the PS4's NA launch.

I think once the PS4 releases in the other 13 markets on 11/29 & December then they should compare numbers. But, the fact still remains of the PS4 selling 1.06 million consoles in 2 days in North America alone is an amazing feet.
qu1ckset  +   812d ago
@thrust I actually own the ps4 and is not laggy at all , psn had some issues on launch day but fixed now!

And all I wanted was a upgraded 360 or PS3 with an amazing controller , and sony delivered with a good price tag!

I loved xbox, and xbox360, and hated ps3 but M$ had to go all out with kinect which I hate and will not buy into! , and on top of that have weaker specs and costs more!..

Going to need more then Titanfall and Halo to get XBO a head of sony this gen!
Sono421  +   812d ago
@Thrust..... *Sigh* You can tell this excuse is going to be used to death... "Sony only sold more because they made more!" ...... tell yourselves whatever you need to man. Also as for them changing nothing.. you have no idea what your talking about.. I have a PS3 and a PS4 and if it wasn't for the fact that it said playstation on it I would never guess it's the next installment in the Playstation brand.

Everything about the PS4 is different from the PS3.. literally. It would be easier to say the things it has in common than to make the long list of differences.. VERY happy with my PS4.. the experience has been flawless. Could care less what the competition is doing now, PS4 is all i'll ever need.. although I admit i'm getting a gaming PC soon but there's no way i'm abandoning my PS4.

Considering the fact that the Xbone is out this Friday, I haven't seen a single ad just for the console. I've seen a couple of COD ads.

Just wondering what "killer app" you are excited to get with kinect? Are you gonna have a dance dance revolution? or maybe you can't wait to watch T.V. through your console? I know, your excited that you will be able to shut the damn thing off by giving it the finger. X1 has innovation coming out it's ass. /s

After seeing the Australian sales giving 2:1 ratio of people wanting PS4 over Xbox One, I would not be worried too much if I were Sony.

The PS4 will be the fastest selling console within it's first month and launch year.

"If it was common sense and logic, people would be buying a PC"

Many many people who own PCs don't care about PC gaming. The games they want to play are on consoles, so common sense and logic tell them to buy a console.

So let me get this right, Sony releases the PS3 in North America alone and sells a million console in a day and the XboxOne gets released this week in over 20 countries and is hoping to beat that? I hope they do for their sake! If they don't then they need to rethink their marketing strategy.

On Amazon UK's 2013 top sellers in video games the XB1 is sitting at #37 and the PS4 is at #3.

If they say the XB1 launch is going to be big then the ps4 launch is going to be massive.
mcstorm  +   812d ago
I agree it will be interesting to see the uk and USA numbers of the Xbox one but this shows that the Xbox one is not going to be a flop from the start like people on this site have been saying.

We will also have a better idea in 12 months time on which console Will be the leader and how well the others will do.

I hope Nintendo manage to push the wiiu again now though as it now has the games and is a under rated console.

I do think Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft will have successful consoles come the end of this gen and it is way to early to say what will happen just like this gen people thought the 360 and ps3 could not catch the Wii numbers but they are now getting close and people have seen we can have 3 successful consoles in one gen so it could happen again.
Jay70sgamer  +   812d ago
McStorm I agree with everything you said except ps3 or ps4 catching wii ..they are 20,000,000 consoles behind they got a little closer but not close enough ..they are not gonna catch the wii.... after this Christmas.sales for both machines are gonna drop dramatically because of there new machines other words the 360 and ps3 would have to sell 555,000 units a month for the next 3 years to catch the wii.....that's not gonna happen but I agree all three are gonna do well this generation I believe ....never count out nintendo

Sony will sell the PS3 for a few years yet like they did PS2,it hasn't hit the magic £99 yet either!
Seafort  +   812d ago
Yeah the only reason Xbox360 did so well in UK was because the PS3 launched over a year later and more expensive so everyone and their friends bought the X360 instead.

The UK was a PS stronghold before that.

MS won't do that well in UK this time especially not with the price difference.
mcstorm  +   811d ago
I have to disagree with it being the only reason. Yes the 360 cost less but it was also pushed more here too and the game shops were even pushing the console more too. Also the 360 is more expensive still in the uk over the ps3 and is still outselling it here.

Im not saying the One will out sell the PS4 here but no one really knows what is going to happen.

Stand by for enlightenment.......step 1 don't get defensive........ Step 2 understand that I know what I say isn't fact just my opinion...... I didn't say anything about Xbox live. What I did hint at was, MS screwed the pooch at E3. This left a sour taste in some gamers mouths, thus causing an influx of Sony ps4 buyers on top of the loyal fans. Sure Sony accounted for its loyal fans but there is no way they could've forecasted MS messing up, sending them more traffic. Let's be honest neither Sony or MS had flawless networks this gen so I can only Assume this would cause a problem. Has psn been perfect since the ps4 launch? Let me know, I don't have a ps4 yet. Gonna wait a little. I know u read my comment and wanted to defend Sony but it wasn't even a knock on them.

PS4 had the highest launch sales of any console, in only North America. XBO is selling in 13(?) countries day one, so it'll no doubt be higher. Then, the next week, Sony releases the PS4 in the other 20 countries.
RiPPn  +   812d ago
Sony only launched in 2 regions on the 15th and broke records. It launches in 30 more on the 29th. 20 of which are in Europe. To compare Microsoft is launching in a total of 13.

*insert generic comment about pre-ordering both consoles or being a fan of both, before ignorantly stating something irrelevant to the topic. But because the comment was made about pre-ordering both consoles, you feel your ignorance is justified*

Without a doubt, that $100 difference in cost will play a huge role in the number of consoles shipped to customers from Amazon. And being Europe, where many of the additions to the Xbox One and Xbox LIVE won't be available at launch, that gives gamers more of a reason to get the PS4 before the Xbox One.

But hey, competition is good, right?

Sony may take the start because of the price, but MS will gain or take over after people has a chance to see the xb1 in action for theirselves. When the price drops it will be a whole new game.

MS have never outsold a Sony system. Even at a lower price point, and a whole years advantage they still ended up in 3rd place.

What makes you think the X1 will be any different when the odds are stacked so steeply against them?
JeffGUNZ  +   812d ago | Well said
Sony was a dominate power in the console market. From PS2 vs Xbox to PS3 vs. Xbox 360, the amount of share MS took from sony, their userbase, is extremely impressive. Sure, MS didn't outselll them on their second generation, but did anyone really even expect before launch that MS was going to be neck and neck and lead in NA sales?! MS did a fantastic job this generation and just to say "well Sony outsold them" is irrelevant in the amount of ground MS took from Sony. This is a two horse race and both consoles offer some great things.
Revolver_X_  +   812d ago

Admittedly Sony underestimated MS at the start of last gen plus questionable decisions from the people in charge. After a change in leadership and perspective, it didnt take Sony long to overtake MS again. Were not talking finances before the rapid fanboys get defensive. Were talking gaming divisions hardware units and public appeal.

This time around PS4 took no chances. The last few years Sony won the consumers back. This gen they wanna win over the developers. As much as people want Kinect to mimic the Wii's casual market success, it wont. The general public opinion of Kinect speaks volumes. While Wii captured the casual market, it wasnt JUST the gimmicky controllers. The Wii had faces. Mario, Link, Samus. Kids wanted these characters. X1 lacks severly in those respects. Until X1 can brand characters that are memorable, X1's aim at casuals will be fruitless. The TV crap is the wrong direction. Mark this comment. In the next 2 years this will become apparent.

You said that PS3 lost some fans. Looking at preoders, sales, and public opinion, I would argue PS4 is getting them back.
Ashby_JC  +   812d ago
What it comes down to for me is that MS last gen (360) even with RROD did some things that no one expected.

When the 360 was released tons of people waited for the PS3 to release. I myself sat on the fence and eventually jumped on a 360 and was really impressed with it (aside from the RROD).

Once the PS3 got it price down and games started to come out for it. It gained momentum and ended up catching the 360 the END.

Hats off to MS in there second outing.

Now come to current day. Its turned around in huge favor of the PS4. The price of $399.99 is huge. And the launch sales have proved that.

At the same time...there is a demand for the X1 as well. There are plenty..myself included who are excited for the X1 and Kinect.

Im not going to sit here and say the X1 will eventually sell better or vice versa. I just believe that BOTH systems are going to do well.

Because in the end...does it matter if one finishes 1st or 2nd?? Great games and experiences came for both the 360 and PS3 last gen. And im hoping that we get the same this gen.
cell989  +   812d ago
Its more amazing to think that the 360 was always cheaper than PS3 and that PS3 had the worst launch ever, worse than What Microsoft has been experiencing for the past 6 months, yet the PS3 still managed to pour out better exclusives and did in fact outsold the 360 even with a year head start. PS3 had a way bigger challenge than the 360 had, if anything the 360 owes its success to Sony's misfortunes and poor decisions.

@Jeff - "MS did a fantastic job this generation and just to say "well Sony outsold them" is irrelevant in the amount of ground MS took from Sony."

MS fans always forget the role Nintendo and even Sony themselves played in the whole market share thing. Sony dominated everyone with PS2, so it was almost inevitable that they'd lose market share. Nintendo and MS had nowhere to go but up, and Sony didn't help themselves with their arrogance, PS3 pricing, or the arcane workings of the Cell.

But, go ahead and keep telling yourselves it was all MS's doing if it makes you happy.

@JeffGUNZ: not really pretty well divided. In Europe we're talking about 32.26 millions vs America's 24.87 millions. Xbox 360 has a really a great advantage over PS3 (44.86 vs 27.45) in America, something that I personally doubt will happen again with PS4, but will see.

Why do you people mention price drops? The 360 came out a year early in Nov 2005 (see also; market share) and didn't drop until Aug 2007.

The wiiU is different since it wasn't selling... these new consoles will at least double wiiU in the first year, if not 3x.. That pains me to say add I love Nintendo.

Thats all assuming Sony doesnt do the same. People in the US have gotten their hands of both and most all of them LOVE their PS4

Look we can pretend the Xbox One and Ms will outsell sony, but look who caught up and outsold who coming a year behind who to finish in 2nd.

No one expected Sony to make a console at $600 bucks and the console STILL perdormed will.inspite of its horrenoud launch price.

MS has no advantage going forward, they dont have a head start. They dont have a price advantage and theyve had terrible PR and exposure since May this year!

They will perform well, but they wont be out performing or outselling the PS4. The PS brand is far more powerful and recognislzable than you give it credit for, thats why XB360 Sits comfortably in 3Rd place after being on the market for 8 years.

Yeah, but Launch games are what tend to push people to one side or the other. Excluding fanboys who own only one console and already decided they will be buying the PS5 or Xbox 2 in 10 years from now, launch games matter. As much as people don't want to admit it, it's true. Granted, both are not impressive other then Forza 5 and at least DR3 looks fun, but neither are system sellers for me.

Lie about numbers? Haha you obviously don't understand how the system works. Microsoft is a public company with many shareholders. Reporting false numbers is very illegal. But of course like many of others on here you people just spread false accusations without any facts backing them up. Sony has been outsold by Microsoft with the Xbox 360. While I am not a fan of the 360, due the massive success of the console Microsoft was able to set a hefty budget for the research and development department of the Xbox One. Don't forget a million sales in the first few days is nothing compared to sales over a period of 6-7 years.
voodoopickle  +   812d ago
the 360 has a very small lead and it had an extra year advantage. the fact that the ps3 caught up should tell you which is really more popular. and before you say anything I have added to both of their numbers

I don't know, the Wii U looks like it's getting some great games soon, and I know at least four people getting one for Christmas.

The Xbox One also looks pretty interesting, but I'm not too keen on forking over 500 bucks...

Seeing that microsoft is targeting mostly the casual audience with kinect in mind, I believe they are going to hurt themselves at launch especially with the xbox one being more expensive. If microsoft was smart, they would have sold kinect separately. I believe they will have a good launch but after the core buy it from launch, sales will be slow until they drop the price. Look for a $399 sku in 6 months time. Sony selling 1 million units in 24 hours in the US only should give u an idea how much demand there is for the ps4. U can bet that microsoft already has plans just incase things are slower then expected.

Too bad for Microsoft if they want to become the next Wii. They should've come out with both half the price and the power to have one single chance.
Ashby_JC  +   812d ago
At this point. Its clear that the PS4 is very very popular. Sales on release have shown this as fact.

At launch...I dont feel MS hurt themselves. Because there is demand for the X1. In comparison to the PS4 its making it look as if the X1 is a failure...which it isnt.

Pre-order from what I have been reading is much much higher then the 360. BOTH the PS4 and X1 will do great numbers. the PS4 higher.

MS took a risk by adding the Kinect in every box.

As for your opinion on saying MS should have made the Kinect optional. I disagree. The reason is that they need something to differentiate themselves from the PS4.

Yes yes we know there is a $100 difference. Like I said that is a risk they have chosen to take. Side by side you have to have something that makes you different.

Will there decision to take these risk pay off in the long term?? Who knows..

In the short term ... the PS4 is beating them.

I do know this..there is demand for BOTH systems.

I for one think a kinect less sku would be a mistake. Take off the kinect and what you have is a game system next to the PS4 that isnt doing anything special.

All my will be a interesting next few years.

My XB1 awaits. Ill get a PS4 down the road.

EDIT - Wow this is long lol.

I get where your coming from but why not have 2 sku's? One with kinect & one without it. It never hurts to give your consumers choice & I believe the demand would be higher if they had 2 sku's. Just my opinion & I didnt disagree with u.

How long was Wii top for. More money to lie. Ms made the numbers so theyrwz not 6 month delays. Only about 2-3 weeks still they'll fulfil more first day orders BUT only cause they'll have the stock. Just wait till ps4 uts Europe. Like I said should have been 15th or 22nd. Two seppetste factoroes etc so dumb choice. But ps4 will be 1. But won't beat Wiis reign the consoles will be Moe plentiful this time arround
saber00005  +   812d ago
I bought a PS4, and I love it. I have friends getting the Xbox One. I don't like the Xbox One, but I wish them the best of luck and hope they enjoy gaming as much as I have so far with my console. CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG!

Nope.. :(

Reasons why ps4 is cheaper
Crappy $2 headset it comes with
No camera
Horrible online system
Horrible basic os
No one talks while playing online

Now I have to go and buy a proper headset because the one that comes with it is the most horrible headset ever conceived.

Think I don't have a ps4? Get a grip

And yeah the os has little to no imagination or innovation

Xbox live is a better community.
Everyone communicates
Comes with awesome headset
Better controller in my opinion
Teh cloudzerrrs
Good operating system, snap feature, better internet explorer, mp3 and avi support

When the Xbox one comes out I just might sell my ps4.

I find playing on psn the same as xbl, i stick cod on both, go to multilayer on both, look for a match on both and play on both, typically get in a game faster on psn and its less laggy their is also hardly anyone screaming down their mics etc but i guess with ps4 that is going to change, joys.

Wow xbox sure must be a better system if all that is true... to bad its a gaming console and xbox wont have any games after launch.. the same as 360 a gaming consooe with no games.
johny5  +   812d ago
No one talks while playing online"

Yeah maybe because no one wants to talk to loud mouth racists disrespecting pricks that leave a bad taste in peoples mouth's coming from XBL!

If you call that competitive gaming then you need to check yourself in a mental ward!
R3ddBuddah  +   812d ago
I've resisted commenting on others comment.. But this has to be the dumbest effn thing i have ever seen on N4G. Please get ride of your imaginary PS4, and while you're at it. Go to a doctor and get fixed so you don't re populate.

Frankly, it's hard to believe you'd keep a PS4 if you had one, based on all the crap you talk about it.

How in the hell does everyone communicate on XBL if they're all in their own parties with people who are watching Netflix, rather than talking to folks on the same team?

And that headset? Awesome? Yeah, now I KNOW you're full of BS.

You went full retard, man. You NEVER go full retard.

For the sake of competition good luck Microsoft. Lets push these consoles so that Nintendo can flop and become the next Sega, sticking to releases on other consoles.
ironmonkey  +   812d ago
It will be close but like usual in the years to come sony with the better exclusives and ms leaving their fans behind like 360.
piffyd  +   812d ago
i just cannot believe they both launched such weak consoles

not even native 1080p across the boards

games like bf4 that I played at my buddies house on ps4 look awful, covered in jaggies with low res textures, not to mention it certainly was NOT native was obvious with all the artifacts everywhere

played the knack demo at gamestop on my lunch yesterday and it looked like a ps3 game, same crappy textures, same jaggies, and to top it all off, A FIXED CAMERA.....WTF???

played ghosts on my brothers ps4 (the only game he bought .lol) and it looked like my pc version set to all medium, the textures were worse, the performance was junk and the jaggies were awful in that as well

what is almost impossible to believe is that the xbox1 is actually even WEAKER than the ps4, cannot imagine how terrible things will look on that

after 8 years you think ms and sony would have at LEAST made these systems on par with what pc was doing 5 years ago....but nope

when there are enough games for these things and the price is down to around $200, then I'll grab one or both maybe, but now.....awful ports of pc games I can get cheaper with way better graphics and junk first party games that are barely getting 7's......for $400-$500 plus $400 to play online for years and games that cost $!
FANTA1180  +   812d ago
does it really matter , both consoles are going to sell alot of units and games.

im dying to get a ps4 , to resell on ebay.
Ashby_JC  +   812d ago
It matters to the people who will use any and all information as ammo for the next 5-8 years.

Imagine if both systems sold evenly. Then all would move onto something else to argue about.

If its not sales...its games....if not games then User Interface....if not UI ...the controllers.....on and on and on.

Nothing is going to stop the back and forth. Its entertaining at times and others its annoying. It gets annoying when people spew FALSE information to back up there agenda.

Or just outright hate on something because they got the opposite.

PS4 domination even on old xbox's region. Imagine the apocalypse when PS4 will drop at the end of the month. It's already have break record in NA.

PharaohX  +   812d ago
Proof positive that the PS4 sucks. Here it is released and rather than enjoying the system. The Fanboys are here on an Xbox related article still trying to justify their purchase and even stating it will sell better. Who cares if it will or not. If you enjoy your system that's all that matters. YET most of you so called Loyalist are without a system to play and or your system does not have anything worth while to hold your attention. Now commence with the disagrees.

What console has had way more and better exclusives the past 4 years? Oh yeah PS3, try again. If anything is only gonna be used for watching shows and TV it's Xbone idiot. They loved talking about it.

are you joking or are you serious? youre fkn with the fanboys huh,,stop it youre out of control

your right about the x1 used for watching shows and tv. The idiot thing was kind of hurtful. If I was a real boy I'd probably shed a tear.
JuniorCE  +   811d ago
Well.. lets see about that on November 29th lol
FanboyKilla  +   811d ago
No matter how many either of them sell, you need games to play on them. And from what i see only ONE has games on arrival. Evidence:Fanboys of the system that is out are downplaying and hating the arrival of the other. They are not playing that "beast". Instead here they are wishing the other one sucks worse than theirs. A sad bunch. Why would you want a product to suck, because you brought the other one? LMFAO chump. Why not enjoy what you got and hope for better? Here is why. You are a fanboy, a hater, bias, ignorant, simple minded being. Congrats sony. Lets go XBO!

X1 will sell well in Europe, but believe me, Europe is Sony Land.
