Pretty much PS4 is going to sell a LOT. Was actually a good interview as the guys seems to really know what he was talking about.

avengers1978946d ago

He starts by talking about supply... Well PS4 is sold out as in no one is reporting them being available, in the mean time there are lots of reports of XB1 on store shelves, including day one editions. I don't think supply is the issue.
I'm pretty sure PS4 would have sold 2 million if they had them actually available right now.
It will be interesting to see PS4 numbers from Europe

It is interesting that according to IGN there are more players online on BF4 for One. So maybe PS4 is selling more, but xbox owners buy and play more games.

You could make the case that more XB1 owners bought BF4, but you can't make a generalization XB1 owners buy and play more games from that one example.

Reverent947d ago

I know plenty of PS4 owners who haven't bought a single game yet. They're passing the time with Warframe and Blacklight until January when more games come out.

That's the way I see it. As of this current time, there is less reason to need to actually buy a game to be able to enjoy what the PS4 offers.

Well, Bf3 sold more on 360 than ps3, so it would make sense that there are more Bf4 players online on the One than ps4.

Also, you have to take in account that a lot of ps4 players probably bought the game, but are waiting until all they can actually play 64 player conquest consistently without crashes.

dcj0524947d ago

To be fairvthe amount of hours played on BF3 goes like this:1.PS3
2.PC
3.360

@dcj0524: Link, please?

Thomaticus947d ago

That's a good point. I have BF4for ps4 and I haven't even opened. I was waiting for issues to be fixed.

oof46947d ago

Thomaticus: Yes, I am a Battlefield fan as well, and the problems are well documented. But, apparently saying anything that puts the ps4 in a bad light will get me a ton of disagrees. :)

No. I think it's cause people are sick of cod and xb1 doesn't have any other shooters available. Whereas the ps4 has kz giving ps4 owners another option.

testerg35947d ago

I thought COD is the best selling PS4 game so far?

Reverent947d ago

@tester, a lot of people who bought Ghosts were disappointed, so they play other games instead. Just because you buy the game doesn't mean it has to be the ONLY game you play.

Master-H947d ago

Maybe JUST maybe because the One is out across the US and Europe, while the ps4 is only out in the US atm, therefore it is logical that there are more players online on BF4 ?? have you thought of that ??

Reverent947d ago

How anyone could disagree with you is beyond me. That could literally be considered fact.

Valkron1947d ago

Wait a second. How the heck did you figure that one out? So there are 1.2 million PS4's sold in the U.S and Canada, and just barely 1 million claimed to be sold world wide with many sitting on store shelves. Well, isn't that still more PS4s sold period? So how is it logical that there are more players online for XB1 than PS4? Shouldn't they have as many or more playing online? Ever thought of that? :/

BTBuck1947d ago

I haven't gotten a chance to go online with BF4 yet, I think PS players play through the campaigns first then jump online, xboners just play online mainly. I'm still campaigning through KZ, just finished ghosts today and am about 90% through BF4, I'm also leveling up my Porsche in NFS and havebt even had a chance to crack open knack because super Mario 3D world took the platformer spot for now on my wiiU. Point is, I'll be MP'ing soon just too busy with so much great content, so maybe others are too?

Bigpappy947d ago

I don't think they like your comment. Better apologize.

MatrixxGT947d ago

Possibly because bf4 has MP issues on ps4? I have bf4 and havent been able to get into a conquest match since launch. So I said F it and ive been absorbed into AC4 at the moment.

Omegasyde947d ago

Yep and Ps4 has 4 major first person shooters too.
Bf4, COD4 version 9294318, Killzone 4, and Black Light.

More choices mean more people spread out.

ChozenWoan947d ago

dont forget the Free to Play games such as Warframe and DC Universe online.

tagan8tr947d ago

I'd say the XB1 online players are spread between COD and Bf4. PS4 online players are spread across COD,Bf4,and KZ. I just realized seems like PS4 has more fps online games available than XB1 what is this opposite day..

Rayansaki947d ago (Edited 947d ago )

BF4 is the only good multiplayer shooter on the One. PS4 has 2 others in Killzone and Blacklight.

Clarence947d ago

Or perhaps people are playing KZ SF, COD, and BF4.

DevilishSix947d ago (Edited 947d ago )

Exactly Reverant! I got my PS4 at launch with AC4 and Killzone and downloaded my free copies of Resogun and Warframe. I have touched nothing but Warframe since. It is such an addicting game and awesome co-op fun. So much to do and collect. You can support the developers by purchasing platinum or not. It's the gamers choice.

_FantasmA_946d ago

Or it could be that they are on COD :(, Killzone :), or Blacklight, Warframe, etc. There are five shooters on the PS4 already. Imagine that.

Why oh Why, do websites insist on videos.
Do the presenters like the sound of their own voices so much that they feel the need to infect the masses...... like an aggressive disease.

Good old text format on one page would suffice!

MRMagoo123947d ago

Maybe they dont like how things written down from interviews can be up to the interpretation of the interviewer , a video more clearly gets the points across without ppl having to read into it.

Plus we have tvs now ppl cant be arsed reading newspapers much any more.
