if this is true then the PS4 will pass the WiiU by the end of this year.

1 year head start

2 months to be passed up by superior hardware with actual GAMES.

No-one will argue the "superior hardware" point, but "actual games"? Both the XB1 and PS4 have no essential games right now. When you're not being a raving fanboy, that much is obvious.

" Both the XB1 and PS4 have no essential games right now."

Yeah true but it's not long till Infamous and Titanfall are released. How long did it take the Wii U to get a real killer app? I know I'm still waiting after one year. Then, its just a veritable blitzkrieg of promising games;:

The Order
Quantum Break
Destiny
The Division
Drive Club
Halo 5

and more....

Wii U is missing out on key third party games and even its first party line-up leaves a lot to be desired. It would be a big kick up Nintendo's back side if what ATI predicts actually happens. No doubt Reggie will find a way to spin it though.

Huh, why is people disagreeing with this? Wii U at the moment got a stellar line up of good games, granted it took them long enough to get here but it's irrelevant in this question. Neither the PS4 nor the Xbox One can really shake a stick at the Nintendo Software now. It'll get better during 2014 naturally but not at the moment. This have nothing to do with hardware but a cold look at each systems software, and Nintendo just got the best out the atm.

Third parties can be set aside seeing how those can be played on last generation and PCs so not really a valid argument.

@Septic:

In the case on Wii U, I think people are just enjoying talking bad about it for no reason.. Killer app? ask these same people to tell you what they wanna see on Wii U. Key third party titles are there, proof that Wii U owners don't want these games..
While a killer app is proper to every single person, to me Zelda is the one when it comes to Nintendo consoles and is the only reason i buy them.
Nintendo can release exclusive Battlefield or even Uncharted, i promise you no one would buy it either, people would still find something to talk bad about Wii U.
Nintendo in my opinion should focus on first party games like they always did. Metroid, Starfox, Zelda, Mario is jackpot everytime..

to answer the article, looks like PS4 is on a ROLL... too bad it's out of stock everywhere!!!!
in Denmark colleagues of mine have tried to find one without any luck!!! they had no choice but pay for it if they wanna have a chance to get one by january.

I got both day one, and i have to say since i got my xb1 i have not played my ps4, xb1 launch games are better in my opinion, the game i was playing the most was bf4 on ps4. I know sony has many many games in the works and they usually are slow and steady type company. And micro is a bust their nut in five mins type company. But as of now im playing micro launch games.
nightsurge  +   205d ago
These articles are so stupid and no one seems to understand. THIS IS NOT A WAITING LIST! It's just a simple mailing list. The size of which grew until shortly after release. People that have received their consoles aren't magically removed from the mailing list. They are still there unless they go in and manually remove themselves from notifications.

So please understand that this IN NO WAY implies that 2 million people are still waiting for PS4s from Gamestop. I'm sure very large portion of those in the list have gotten PS4s by now.

Games are subjective. Poke your "essential". I heard Galaxy 1 and 2 were best games of the gen. I'd give them both a 7/10. I finished both.
Killzone multiplayer is deep, challenging, tactically flexible and tense. I call it essential.
geddesmond  +   205d ago
What do you mean no essential games. PS4 has COD, Battlefield, KZ, Fifa14 and AC4. With Watchdogs, MGS:GZ and Infamous to come soon. That's a ridiculous statement. If those games don't appeal to you then fair enough. Each to their own but how can you speak for everyone saying they have no essential games???

Then don't forget that Destiny and Elder Scrolls online are coming second part of next year along with whatever else is released. Plus who buys a consol for release games anyway. Not to mention that WiiU is out how long and how many essential games does that have.

Look we all knew when WiiU specs were announced how it would do and sub par graphics and ram don't cut it anymore. Everyone whats the pretty look girl in the corner and not her ugly sister.

I don't know what an essential game is, but I know I'm playing games on PS4 right now that the Wii U doesn't have, and never will. I guess those are the essential reasons why I bought a PS4 and not a Wii U.
PudgeySan  +   205d ago
Battlefield
Cod Ghosts
AC Black Flag
Fifa
NFL
NBA

Those are 6 games that should keep you busy till the New Year, If not there are exclusives and Indie as well.. The launch line ups for this gen of any have been the best I would say, I know some would disagree but I am clocking major hours into Battlefield and Resogun - Kz is next. Gamers are just plan fucking entitled these days. Play the dam games you have dammit, they are amazing !!!
Spenok  +   205d ago
So my copies of Killzone, Assassins Creed IV, Battlefield 4, Knack, Contract, Rosogun, and Escape plan aren't actual games?

Damn! I wish I knew WHAT they were then. Because I sure thought they were.

Oh, and to respond to ATi_Elite as well. Yeah The WiiU has actual games too. Hell, you don't even have to look that hard. It just doesn't have very good 3rd party support, as most gamers don't buy 3rd party games on their home systems. Thus they don't make them.
MazzingerZ  +   204d ago
PS4 and X1 are getting HD versions of most games released on PS3 and X360, looks way better and you can play them with a better controller as well, exclusives are around the corner...have you a PSV then you have remote-play as well.

Don't understand why people is willing to buy a console in the future just for a couple essential games but not because already offers better versions and experiences of the games they are getting next month for older platforms
Irishguy95  +   205d ago
The Wii U has WAY more games than the Ps4 right now. And probably will through next year. The Wii U has 2 potential 'Game of the Generation's coming out next year(Xeno**** and Zelda) and has the rest of their top franchises coming in. Like Smash bro's.

Not that i'm saying you're wrong. It's pretty clear Nintendo had the casuals last time and don't this time. However, expect much more Wii U's to start selling next year too. I'll be buying one for sure. After the Ps4 of course. The Wii U basically sold **** all and had a major sale spike with just 1 games release. Super mario world. Expect the same from Zelda and X. X is the successor to Xenoblade, which is already a cult classic. And then you have the trailers. Xenoblade was one of the best RPG's last gen. Xeno U already looks to be topping it.

I don't expect Wii U to sell as much as the other two this gen. But lets be straight forward, the thing is going to sell. I think most gamers are like me. They don't buy a gaming system just for the sake of having one. Early adopters to consoles are called early for a reason. I'm getting the Ps4 when theres a worthwhile reason to have it. Which is soon. The same goes for Wii U.

Edit - For the moment, Ps+ and Dark souls 2(which will be better than any next gen game currently out) are going to keep me happily gaming without a next gen console/. All while my Ps4 library builds up with Ps+ until I actually get the console

I'm not saying it's going to compete Alexious haha, i'm saying it's going to sell. Also taking into account that the system is cheap as chips compared to the other two. The Wii U has been doing ****, dreadful up till now. But just 1 game was enough to make it start selling. Again, next year it has one of the best years nintendo will ever have. Exclusives wise in particular. And especially in sales. Majority of gamers(The ones who don't follow gaming news) look at games. Not platforms. Cod, Halo, Mario, Zelda, Final fantasy(back in the day), pokemon, Uncharted. I'd also wager any gamer that gets a Wii U will also be getting one of the other 2 systems.

I was set on eventually getting a Wii U after X was shown. I've played Xenoblade -> yes monolith soft know what they're doing. More than most Jap devs in these dark days. Then there is Zelda which literally always is a quality game. Often marked among the top of the generation. Then the various mario franchises like Galaxy(64, sunshine, Galaxy 1/2) and the side scroll ones(The most recent one is supposed to be epic). Then there is Bayonetta 2/ Smash bros

Right now? Yeah. Through next year? Hell no.

Compare launch lineup with launch lineup and Year 1 with Year, and you'll see quickly that this is not the case. WiiU doesn't have strong third party support, in the long run its software will suffer compared to the PS4 which will have 99% of games except the exclusive of the other platofrms.

Isn't it a bit early in the generation to be touting that. We have a least 5 years worth of games to come. It is a bit ignorant to say that (especially when we havnt seen a single thing about Zelda)
nategrigs  +   205d ago
Im really not sure why so many people are disagreeing with you. Do they think you're bashing the ps4?

The fact is that the WiiU is a great second console. I had a Wii for a month or two before it was stolen, so when I get the U I'll immediately have HUGE library of great games to play. Sure it has no third party support, but my ps4 has those covered.

Buying a second console is all about exclusive games, and I think its clear that WiiU exclusives are pretty great.

Mobile devices also have WAY more games than PS4 and X1 at the moment, but do people want to play them? No, because it doesn't matter. People harp on about Nintendo having Mario, Zelda, etc. but being honest, would you rather have a PS4 or WiiU hooked up to your TV right now? If people answer honestly, 90% will say PS4 regardless of its lack of games. There is a reason the WiiU has sold very little; it is not nearly as appealing as a console (never mind the games) compared to the PS4 or X1, and doesn't have any of the potential. It is, in terms of power, spec'd like a last gen console, and people are always going to want the latest and greatest in their living room when it comes to that untapped potential.

The WiiU is doomed if you ask me. Nintendo got by on a gimmick last gen, that worked really well for them. This time around, no one even knows what the WiiU is. Is it a controller upgrade for the Wii or a new console? Nintendo have done a woeful job telling the casuals, that they relied on last gen, about what the WiiU actually is.

Man, I just getting swamped with PSN games left and right - either free or cheap. Great games I haven't had a chance playing. Why would I get a WiiU? I got the PS4 for next gen, and a huge backlog of existing great titles - plus new ones. Best of two worlds.

Game of the generation is something i HIGHLY doubt especially because the generation has barely started maybe in 5 years or so that claim will be more believable but not a chance now developers have no idea how to use any of the hardware in this next gen right now including wii u PS4 and XB1.

So your deluded if you believe those games will define the generation not saying they will be bad but they will be forgotten in under 12 months.

look at current gen game of the gen well i would say gta v and that didn't release until the very end of the generation.

While I agree with the majority of your post, Zelda hasn't been shown at all, let alone given a release date. So, the chances of it releasing on 2014 are very slim.

Hopefully a blow to Microsoft's US success will make them a little more generous with Games for Gold or something similar. Currently, Playstation Plus is the best deal in gaming, and it's understandable why Sony has won a lot of fans in the last year.

LeCreuset  +   205d ago
The problem with Games for Gold is that MS tried to put the cherry on top of a cake that hadn't been baked yet. Instead of making sure that they had something that could compete with the Plus offerings, MS was focused on one-uping Plus. Free games to keep are nice in theory, but in reality few people are going to want to give their games away for free to keep. That pretty much leaves only MS published games that they are willing to take a hit on. games so old that they really don't have a place in the market, and crappy games that won't sell otherwise.

medman  +   205d ago
Aurenar, you seem not to understand how manufacturing works. The PS4 uses parts from several vendors and it only takes a slowdown in production from even one of those suppliers to limit production capacity. There will always be a shortage with new products, it doesn't matter if you're talking cars, a hot new television, or a cabbage patch kid. For in demand items, demand will always outstrip supply on inception.

Alexious  +   205d ago
Yes, especially since some customers will buy an Xbox One instead if it's available. That's how it works, especially in the Holiday where family will buy gifts and if PS4 isn't available, then they'll buy XB1.

Want lists and preorders are not the same. Remember how many people were on the wait list for the WiiU. How many of those people actually bought that device.

I'm loving my ps4. I play it more than I play my Xbox one. But I just rented ryse and it's a great game. I played dead rising 3 demo and it's not for me. I'd buy ryse over dead rising 3 all day.

Out of curiosity, what are you playing? Launch game luster wore off for me yesterday, I found myself firing up the PC. When I upgrade that in January I suspect consoles will play second fiddle again...

Hi villains, I'm playing a bit here and there. I have killer instinct and also forza 5 for the one. I barely touch forza. And killer instinct is good but nothing the 360 can't handle, but it's an unfinished game. There's no story mode just one vs one and multiplayer. Other than that I have resogun, bf4,ghost and killzone for my ps4. I love killzone I think it's amazing from the campaign to the multiplayer. I don't know why it's getting low reviews. I think it's the best killzone ever made. Also there's no aim assist so it's purely skill. Ghost is always fun. I just rented the Xbox one version to see the difference between the 2 consoles. Let's just say I stopped playing the Xbox one version because it looks like the 360 version. 1080p makes a huge difference. Also the frame rate does skip on Xbox one version on certain scopes while zoomed in. It does skip a little more on the ps4 version but not a game breaker it still plays smooth. I feel bad for all the Xbox one users who argue it's better on the one......it's not! But PC is the way to go for multiplayer games. But ps4 is the best alternative.

Ty for taking the time to reply, bubble for helpful.

I:
-loved the Ryse campaign while it lasted.
-Think DR3 is entertaining, but isn't gripping me at all
-Think Forza is pretty, plays great but I've been there before
-Think BF4 is impressive but not necessarily fun, I'll probably try it again on PC to warm up my kb+mouse skills soon
-Don't enjoy KI at all
-Am more or less disgusted by Crimson Shop Window
-am disappointed by the limitations on Zoo Tycoon
-am addicted to Xbox Fitness

Do not have a PS4, I'm thinking the PC will offer me more so I'm going to upgrade that first. Killzone and Second Son are tempting though.

Titanfall PC... can't wait.

I was there yesterday getting BF4 for the ps4.(sweet game by the way)

They said they got a shipment in that morning and they were gone in a second.

Well GameStop and best buy have both been saying how more people want ps4s. Those numbers would surprise me, but I guess it's possible. We won't truly know which console is doing better until supply matches demand, which could take months.

Waiting for EQ Next before I buy the PS4. :p
Nocando  +   205d ago
And 0 waiting for the Xbone.

Not true. I'm waiting to get a Xbox One when the price drops or if u get enough B-day money in May.
ELpork  +   205d ago
If this is the "waiting list" I think it is, this number is by far and away being blown way out of proportion.

I worked for this Sh** company for 6 years, and the "Waiting List" is a bloated thing for some company to wave around. They did the same thing with the PS3,360,Wii,WiiU. Once the system came out, we were told to start telling people we could put them on a list for these new systems.

Only Corporate looked at it as if it were sales numbers, and people got fired if there weren't enough people on your stores list. Not that it mattered, nobody on the list ever got called, because their was never enough payroll to have anyone do any of the calls.

TL:DR?
The real number is more likely a third of that, because Gamestop employees are ringing up fake transactions in order to boost their stores overall total in order to keep their jobs/get more hours so they don't need to work 70 hour weeks. Feel free to call me a lair, but you're just fooling yourself at that point.

You're a lair

;)
ELpork  +   205d ago
FOOL!

Ehh, believe whatever you want, I don't really care, Those are just the facts tho. I don't doubt the numbers are high, just not that high.
GW212  +   205d ago
Dude. I was calling you out on your typo. I called you a "lair" because you asked me to. Sheesh. I didn't call you a "liar"
ELpork  +   205d ago
No, I meant the game with crap sixaxis controls with dragons >.>....
Clarence  +   205d ago
Wow! Once Sony is able to keep the PS4 in stock, their numbers will really be crazy.
Gamerita  +   205d ago

What if M$ is paying Gamestop to hold back PS4's just so the Xbone can catch up in sales?

I've read do many comments on so many sites and can't help but be annoyed by how many people out there are just complete haters or some whiney super entitled little b*#!hes. Wanting Nintendo to fail, or Sony or microsoft. Or feel the need to stick up for this consoles sales or that consoles sales. Wut is wrong with u mofos? The wii u is fantastic, so is the ps4, xb1. I've been playing video games for 30+ years. Not so long ago this was all about having a good time. Maybe the Internet made some of u this way. Little Internet tough guys who have to vilify or spew negativity to seem informed or relevant. What is wrong with these people in the gaming community? Play games. Enjoy them. Quit trying to be some Michael pachter type and predict who is gonna fail or outsell who. why do we have fan boys? Wtf is that? Immature video game cheerleaders? Grow up.
greenmeanie  +   205d ago
Exactly, there is no reason to want any console to fail. Who cares who wins? Last Generation, all the consoles did great! Heck, Nintendo was even on top for the longest time with the wii! No console "failed" last generation, and everyone was able to buy which one they wanted, and enjoy the games they wanted. I went with an Xbox 360 and a Wii last gen, and I currently have a Wii U, and will definitely be getting either an Xbox One or PS4 about 6 months from now (I always wait 4-6 months after a launch of any console). And heck, if you can afford it, why not get all 3?!?! There is no reason to hate Nintendo for doing their own thing, and there certainly is no reason to hate Microsoft or Sony for doing almost the EXACT same thing... I mean if you want to get technical about it, the only difference between the Xbox and the Playstation at this point is whether you prefer the Halo or Killzone franchise, because every other game worth owning is going to be on both consoles and play the EXACT same way, and look the EXACT same. I know what features I want in MY console, I know what GAMES I want to play, and that is what is going to influence MY choice. Not what some little whiny fanboy on some gaming forum says. There is nothing they can say to convince me to buy one console or the other. I am going to buy the one I WANT!

Id like to see the number of people waiting for a ps4 console in Australia because after the first 3 shipments around the country sold out the next one isn't due until march and this still has not satisfied pre order demands.

You can not get a ps4 anywhere in Australia unless you pay $1000 to buy one from ebay.
rebeljoe14  +   205d ago
I knew there wasn't going to be tons of great games at launch but I got a PS4 anyways because I knew that demands were high and it would be sold out before I could get my hands on it if I didn't preorder one at launch.
