The PS4 launch numbers were unprecedented the console set a new record for the gaming industry, but its reign will be very short.
I doubt it, not if the pre order numbers are anything to go by....then you also have to factor in the fact the PS4 has yet to launch in Europe. 1 million + whatever the rest of the world makes on each of their respective launch dates....i can't see MS beating that. So no. Probably not.
Well at launch PS4 only released in a limited amount of places most noticeably NA, Xbox One is launching in various major territories EU, NA, AU, NZ...
they said 5million plus... lmfaoooo the grammar in the piece is terrible as for bragging rights... what happens when ps4 is released in as many countries as xbone from next week? xbone has a global launch ps4 launched in North America, next week ps4 launches in Europe etc
They can forget about 5 million for launch because those numbers are predicted for the end of the financial year.
The interest levels reported over the last 6 months show not much pre orders or interest in the console. So guess wel'll see.
The PS4 EU launch will dwarf the US launch, simply becasue it will be launching it about 30 territories or something like that. Therefore the PS4 launch will dwarf the XbOne launch simply becasue it will be launcing in fewer territories, and there is alot less demand for the XbOne.
"The PS4 EU launch will dwarf the US launch" Crazy if it does, 1 million is damn impressive (record breaking actually), if the EU launch tops that then my mind will be blown. PS4 is so damn popular, they completely stepped up their game since the PS3 launch.
Wanna know a secret, everyone? Pssst. I'll tell you: Launch numbers have far more to do with supply than demand. I can't remember a time when a console DIDN'T sell out at launch. The Wii sold out at launch (duh). So did the Wii-U. So did the 3DS. So did PS3. So did 360. Heck, I'm pretty sure even the Gamecube was a bit hard to find its first week. It mostly boils down to the supply. With that said, we know that Xbox One is having supply issues (for a variety of reasons). That's why they're launching in fewer countries. I fully expect Microsoft's Day One sales to be around 750,000 to a million, but if/when it turns out that XBox One sold less than PS4, Microsoft will simply make a public statement: "Xbox One demand is so high, we sold out everywhere! We can't keep up with demand!!!"
The Wii U and PS3 didn't sell out, I haven't any issues buying either on launch without pre ordering.
Nope its just that the demand for the PS4 is a lot higher than the demand for Xbox Ones. Even if both manage to satisfy demand without any supply issues, the PS4 will still outsell the Xbox One. Thats the way it is.
if u want fair battle then compare PS4 NA launch numbers vs XBOX NA launch numbers OR: PS4 NA+EU VS XBOX NA+EU
I can't see as many people purchasing the Xbox One as the PS4. Even if the machines were equal in power (which we know this isn't the case), with Sony launching first I think people just couldn't wait to jump on the next gen bandwagon so they opted for the PS4. That being said, I fully expect to see some impressive sales numbers tomorrow for the Xbox One, but they won't be selling 1 million units in NA alone.
Well now XB1 is launching in 13 countries day one so if it doesn't beat/match PS4 numbers with it's 2 countries day one then that's going to be a problem for MS going forward. Once the 29th arrives however oh my it will be interesting to see the numbers.
On a per country basis I don't think they will sell more as they probably started manufacturing latwr and will have less units available to sell. Also the PS4 didn't even launch yet in Europe so they can only compare sales for the countries both have released.
The xbox will not sell more than the ps4 at launch guaranteed!!!
It's true guys... Just for its launch, the XBox One will outsell the PS4... but just for that day...
Not really a fair comparison. By all rights it should outsell it by a wide margin if they have the stock. World wide launch vs NA. What will be the teller is who sells more in the US and who sells more world wide say, by the end of the year. PS4 will proabably be at least a million in front by Christmas.
Probably because the Xbone will sell in more countries? It would be VERY bad for M$ if it sells less, even selling in more places. Let's see, according to me it's going to sell better cause of what i said but next week i guess the crown of best seller will come back to PS4. Or not...? Who knows (yes, according to me).
It seems as though they both sold about the same, however the XBox One was sold in more markets than the PS4. So, we will see when the PS4 launches in Europe, among other places, next week.
