Nice set o links.
These sales mean nothing until March next year when we start to see the true pattern emerge.
Tbh at this moment in time it dose not matter as the people who wanted a Xbox one or ps4 so early in the gen life have got one. Its 12 to 18 months down the line where we will see the none core who just want to play games like cod, FIFA Ext where we will see who is ahead of who. I do have a feeling this new gen will go down the same as the last one where the Xbox one has the USA and uk and Sony has most of Europe and Japan but its too early to say one is winning as they are both doing very well at the moment. Also if you own any of the next gen consoles hope your enjoying the one or ones you got as much as I am.
I disagree. I have saw way more PS4 ads on TV than Xbox ads.
not sure what country your in but ive probably saw 100 xb1 ads to ps4's 4 ads (on sky tv) ive even saw 2 adverts per tv program break a few times not to mention everytime i watch a youtube vid theres a ryse or forza ad before it
Sony has showed the "Perfect Day" commercial a lot on TV. I am not talking about youtube, I am talking about TV.
How would this be if they both were the same price or if Microsoft wouldn't piss a lot of gamers off
There is something about PS4 that myself and others feel that is just not there with Xbox One. We can feel what is coming and it's spreading like wild fire country to country. That greatness....it makes me happy knowing its coming. Can't wait for the final launch in Japan. Sales will be through the roof and then the real fun will begin. http://m.youtube.com/watch?...
Subtract the fact MIcrosft has been Market more than Sony with Mcdonalds Ads etc...
It seems Microsoft is going more mainstream if that makes sense. They don't want just gamers, it seems like they want people to see the Xbox One as a multimedia device. Maybe they believe gaming has a bad connotation for the mainstream.
