congrats to MS ... its a good things for us gamers that both ps4 and xbox one sell is a succee :D

Naga1351d ago (Edited 1351d ago )

Yeah, with the news of 2.1M sold on the PS4 side, I was getting pretty curious about the Xbox One numbers. These are some pretty high-flying numbers for both sides.

Things will get really interesting several months from now, after the initial launch pool of customers have dried up. When each console's staying power is put to the test, then we might start to see a winner emerge. At least for now, this one is far too close to call.

Lalanana1351d ago

Only in 13 countries ..over 2 million sold.. That is pretty damn good. congrats Ms

DeathOfTheFanBoy1351d ago

We as gamers are the winners, doesn't matter which money hungry corporation sells the most units.

Charybdis1351d ago

Its good to see that the competition isn't one sided hopefully Microsoft and Sony will keep trying to one up each other.

Eonjay1350d ago

Question. Major Nelson says it sold through 2 million in 18 days. Others are saying its over 2 million. I think we should go by Major Nelson's statement as he does work for the company.

Naga1350d ago

Eonjay...

... was there actually a question in there?

Eonjay1350d ago

@onagao Lol yes I like exact numbers for my calculations Lol. I guess we know now that it wasn't sold out. If they had 1.5 sold as of 11/30/2013 that means that 500k sold over the last ten days. Unless they have an immaculate supply chain it can't be sold out.

DeadlyFire1350d ago

PS4 will win sales in the long run. Its cheaper, has stronger brand, and its matching everying XB1 can do and then some.

Still though sales numbers disprove Nintendo's theory of people not buying into next generation due to cost and bad economies.

PS4 sold 1 million in 2 countries at Nov. 15th launch. Euro launch landed Nov. 29th. They state on Dec. 1st 2.1 Million sold.

XB1 sold 1 million at its launch in 13 countries Nov. 22nd. Now on Dec 10th we hear XB1 sold 2 million.

Both Microsoft and Sony are heading towards outpacing WiiU by March if their sales don't pick up. Nintendo still has the price advantage.

JeffGUNZ1350d ago

@ Deadlyfire.

How can you say that? Right now it's $100 cheaper, but what will the prices be 4 years from now? Will their be a "slim" version of these consoles, different models, etc. It's very premature to make a statement like that less than a month after launch. All we know are these systems are selling much better at launch then we really expected. Kudos to both of them.

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1350d ago

But N4G told me MS and the Xbox One are dead. And nobody was going to buy one that expensive and less powerful with Kinect.

LMAO at all the people eating crow on this one out there across the webz. Console gaming and the X1 are far from dead.

NewMonday1350d ago

@miDnIghtEr20C_SfF

everyone said the PS4 will outsell the XBone and it's happening, 5-3 in the USA and about 4-1 in parts of Europe, better to stay grounded instead of setting yourself up for disappointment.

DragonKnight1350d ago

@Lalanana: "only" 13 countries? Do you even math? 2 million in 18 days in 13 countries is not "pretty damn good." It's ok.

abzdine1350d ago (Edited 1350d ago )

let's see how much truth there is into that knowing MS they do everything to show they're doing well.
PS4 sold 2,3 million in 14days, just for info, and i think X1 numbers are waaayyy too coincidential.

PS4 sold 1million in 2 countries, X1 1million in 13countries first week.
curious to see how much PS4 sold since release

4Sh0w1350d ago (Edited 1350d ago )

lol, NewMonday yes it is pretty damm good because all the blog hype and BS fanboys were predicting 4-1 crap, some still saying stupid predictions but here we are with the FACTS all proving different. That's exactly why I never believe n4g and those ridiculous blogs.

Congrats to microsoft.

loulou1350d ago

Dragon knight

So, if 2m in 13 countries is just OK, then what is 2.1m in 30 countries??????

Help me understand your reasoning please

gaffyh1350d ago

Pretty good numbers tbh, now though is when you see the difference. When the pre-order's have been fulfilled, and you start to see whether the price is sustainable.

Saigon1350d ago

I am Sorry, Not trying to hate because it is good that MS did this but am I the only one that truly does not believe this. I mean it is possible, but with everything officially reported, the numbers do not add up. I am sorry MS and Major, but these numbers do not add up. I suspect that these numbers are shipped, since MS can track those numbers. This is not the defense force trying to down play these numbers, I am just being logical especially with everything reported.

zero_gamer1350d ago

Actually Xbox One is doing so damn well for a console so controversial and hated. It did much better than expected. You can at least give MS some credit for that.

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1350d ago

Nope NewMonday.. people might of said that as well...but people doomed the X1 to fail, and that nobody would buy it with Kinect and a 100 bucks more.

If the more powerful console and less expensive console didn't outsell the X1, then there's a big problem for you Sony guys. Bad enough that the sales are this close when MS didn't release in as many territories as the PS4... plus the better overall launch games that the X1 has over the PS4.

pyramidshead1350d ago

I agree! Congrats to MS indeed.

Although it may be short lived come 2moro's article.

Should be a fun read ;p.

MorePowerOfGreen1350d ago (Edited 1350d ago )

Look at the replies I was getting LOL

http://n4g.com/news/1410461...

Xbox One sells this much with less time being on the market compared to PS4 and way less countries than PS4. NA historically buys Xbox products at Christmas time like hotcakes, XB1 will prove "experts" & "Analyst" wrong.

Too many people and media falling for the anti XB1 smear campaign and infestation of PS4 fanboys in forums, blogs and comment sections.

Now off to see if IGN will even report on it.

Correct this if it's wrong. No funny numbers from PS4 fanboys.

Xb1 - 2mil in 18 days (13 countries)
Ps4 - 2.1 mil in 18 days 11/15-12/3 (32 countries)

Allocation to the bigger markets was smarter, even more so if both companies have made around the same amount of consoles. I have a feeling MSFT is making more consoles faster.

gaffyh1350d ago

@MorePOG - We don't know PS4 numbers. So those comments you were getting could in fact be quite valid. You should wait until all the numbers are out before talking.

NewMonday1350d ago

@4Sh0w & miDnIghtEr20C_SfF

the reality is we now see XB1 fans lowering the bar adjusting to the new status quo.

it's not even close the 2.1m PS4 number was a combination of the first 2 day stats in USA+Europe, comparing numbers from different time frames looks desperate.

the PS4 IS outselling the XBone by 7-2 in some countries and 5-3 in the USA.

talk about eating crows

buynit1350d ago

At deadlyfire

The ps4 can not do everything the xb1can do especially not out the box...

ziggurcat1350d ago

@ loulou

"Dragon knight

So, if 2m in 13 countries is just OK, then what is 2.1m in 30 countries??????"

2.1m... with a 2 week gap between launches (NA on november 15, EU on november 29), and it hasn't even launched in japan yet.

karl1350d ago

well the xbox fanboys are finally coming out.

congrats to MS.. thats a great number

imt5581350d ago

Microsoft said that XO sold in 2 mil 10 DAYS AFTER Sony annouced they sold 2.1 mil. PS4's. Question is : HOW MUCH SONY SOLD PS4'S AFTER 2.1 MIL. ANNOUCEMENT?

Some people thing they are neck and neck in sales. I don't think so.

mikeslemonade1350d ago

Those numbers are shipped and funny how Major Nelson brings up the zombie stats again to back it up just because they are losing right now.

So we know from conclusive reports that PS4s can't stay on shelves while X1s are staying on shelves for some stores. Major Nelson can only be positive about how much they shipped but not sold.

nukeitall1350d ago (Edited 1350d ago )

I actually find this hilarious!

Why?

I would like to say I told you so that the sales figures will be much closer than all the made up numbers of 5-to-1 ratio between PS4 and Xbox One.

Fact of the matter is that both consoles sell out as soon as they are available.

However, I remember last generation when people were using revenue (i.e. the amount of consoles sold times the price) to try claim this and that.

This is just the beginning, and the battles doesn't start until the console moving games start rolling in March, and the system matures more.

Right now, it is just the launch and holiday hype selling consoles.

However, this proves that PS4 and Xbox One is neck in neck sales wise even with the Xbox One being a $100 more expensive.

@dragonknight:

"@Lalanana: "only" 13 countries? Do you even math? 2 million in 18 days in 13 countries is not "pretty damn good." It's ok."

I guess according to you, it's just ok for Sony too?

Especially since the Xbox One cost a $100 more....

mikeslemonade1350d ago (Edited 1350d ago )

^Nuke

Who said 5 to 1? 3:2 and then 2:1 later.

Yes they're "neck and neck" in the time allotted 18 days. So you don't care who finishes a race first huh??

If I finish a 20k marathon in one hour while the other person finishes the 20k marathon in 3 hours, who is the better runner?

If PS4 sells out in a couple days while the reported X1s are still in stock in most stores but eventually sells out in 18 days, which is the more successful system?

Ju1350d ago

PS4 is 2:1 in Europe and a little bit less in the US. But all in all in the US sales for both are so strong that supply bottle necks in fact evens out any advantage; well, it's still in about 500K over all - which is quite significant during relative low absolute numbers so far. It was clear that both will sell out what they can build. Sony can't really pull ahead - with theirs sold out in days what take MS longer; but basically both sell whatever they can make before they can restock.

Overall, this is a typical MS game. Taking a number we are familiar with (2M), removing some attributes (what's the cut in date?), adding some others ("18 days") and make it look like we are actually talking about the same thing. But in fact we are talking about different things.

Sony is ahead, MS isn't too far behind, so much I agree. But they are in fact behind in all markets. This is also a fact. And I doubt it's because MS can't make more than that - they have the cash to swamp the market if they have to.

ShinMaster1350d ago

PS4 = 2.1M over a week ago.

XBO = 2M in 18 days to date.

PS4 numbers haven't been updated for this week yet.

ToyboxDX1350d ago

So... PS4 2.1 million on Dec 1st whereas XBone up to 2 million on Dec 10.

There's a gap of 10 days meaning PS4 could be at 2.9 million by now?
