So much for the PS2 era coming back

For the record

X1 outsold PS4 by 48,000 last month in US

Nitrowolf21296d ago (Edited 1296d ago )

"So much for the PS2 era coming back"

What do you even mean by that? Sales wise (well duh this is a sales article), I mean it was already confirmed as the best selling console thus far for a launch. And in comparison to the PS2, which did 10 Million it's first whole year on the market globally, the PS4 is already at the half way point with 10 months to go and no Japan release yet either.

If you mean in terms of dominance, well does lead 1.5 Million globally to, with MS dominant markets no longer being their dominant in terms of competition.

Not trying to say X console is better than X, just looking at the sales given, but yea I do have to say that the PS4 does indeed have a "PS2" feel in terms of whats coming out in the coming months and the momentum it has.

aceitman1296d ago

and it looks like ps4 has beaten x1 on american soil , with sony starting to meet demand and income tax returns i see the gap get wider on american it is globally

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt1296d ago

andddd PS4 is still not in stock I'm starting to see it in stock as of this week so FEB will be interesting

badboy7761296d ago

Why no one never mentions marketing?

mcstorm1296d ago (Edited 1296d ago )

What is interesting is the difference in total sales numbers of games on the PS4. Most 3rd party games on the xbox one have sold better than the PS4 and the exclusives are selling better on the xbox one too.

Still rather than say one is better than the other we need to say well done Sony and Microsoft as both are selling well and come on Nintendo start showing off the WiiU and lets see good sales on all 3.

mkis0071296d ago


Actually took me a second to notice that it was listed by week sales not by lifetime... So the second number is what you want to look at. Only BF4 and COD have sold more on xbox 1 than ps4 of the third party releases. BF4 is the one that surprises me. The exclusives obviously will only sell on their respective consoles. It looks like Killzone is only listed for paying members.

truefan11296d ago (Edited 1296d ago )

All I'm going to say is ps4 had a week head start over the XB1 and the gap is now less than 130k with Titanfall releasing in March. Add in refunds and this gap might be closed by May. Worldwide, ps4 will own, but in the USA, where I game, XB1 will reign supreme. Especially holiday season 2014, no ps4 game will be able to match up with Halo. PS4 is definitely selling the best, no denial there, but I think it has more to do with anti MSFT. People bought the console, but didn't buy games, look at those software sales. I also predict scalpers make up a ton of ps4 sales.

combatcash1296d ago


The ps3 outsold the 360 in the U.S and the 360 had a year start. I'm sure the x1 will do well but with a lower price point and the brand I firmly believe the ps4 will outsell the x1 by a large margin.

Fez1295d ago

PS3 was no where near to 360 sales in the US. It was the rest of the world that made up the most of the ps3 sales.

mediate-this1295d ago

People need to stop touting japan as the one to skyrocket the ps4 sales, people japan is f'n dead in terms of what they use to be. The buy handhelds and iphones, every generation less consoles get sold there. If im wrong im wrong, but i dont japan will be critical in sales this gen.

Fez1295d ago (Edited 1295d ago )

Anyone want to link to me sales numbers that show ps3 outselling 360 in the US?

I know this is a small point but you can't agree with @combatcash because his first statement is false. And that statement is a precursor to his argument.

"The ps3 outsold the 360 in the U.S and the 360 had a year start" is a lie or display of ignorance. Either way it's false.

Even comparing selling rates the 360 sold faster than the ps3 in the US.

X360 ~ 40m
PS3 ~ 25m

People need to start reading comments and thinking about them rather than agreeing or disagreeing based on whether they think the person supports the same console as them or not.

Sooooo how about them worldwide numbers?

Hicken1296d ago

For the record, PS4 was sold out most of last month.

What about November, though? And what about now?

What about December in the rest of the world?

It's amazing that you cut your argument down to one tiny section of a debate and claim victory, as if everything else out there doesn't make your little moral triumph pointless.

georgeenoob1296d ago

It was out a week earlier than X1 in November. Nice try though.

GribbleGrunger1296d ago (Edited 1296d ago )

Have you ever caught yourself when you post something like that and thought better of it. How can you have the gall to use a weeks earlier launch as the reason the PS4 is sitting 1.5 million in front? The PS3 launched a full year later in America and 16 months later in Europe but that didn't compute with people like you for some reason. Next weeks numbers will be higher too because recently we got a big shipment of PS4s to bother America and Europe.

Kayant1296d ago


"It was out a week earlier than X1 in November. Nice try though." - Just like how PS4 launched a wk later in the UK and EU and was/still is ahead?( In most of the countries XB1 launched as well).....

What's your point?

ovnipc1296d ago

No it was not. Even on evay ps4 are going for 400 even. Most game stops and best buys have lots of ps4. Like this guy said nice try. The fact is that xone its producing more money than ps4. And xone will pass ps4 in the usa eventually. Xone sells more software than ps4 and thats were the money is like x360 sells double what ps3 sales, sorry but sony still under.

CernaML1296d ago

^Its time to wake up now.

XB1 sales have been dropping off now PS4 has been more readily available.. Look at the change amounts. It was the same last month too. PS4 seems to be picking up traction and Xbox One losing it.

ShinMaster1296d ago (Edited 1296d ago )

48k wow /s

PS4 is outselling the Xbox One in American territory. Period.

"So much for the PS2 era coming back"
3 months in? Really? Talk about fanboy desperation.

DJMarty1296d ago (Edited 1296d ago )

Axios2 - PS4 is outselling X1 by over 100K worldwide on a weekly basis. Your point is?

Madock1296d ago

It's funny how everyone is saying Wii u is dead & a flop while xbone (with these sales) will need several years to catch up with it
Lets remember no one gona buy it in Japan & here in Europe nobody seem that interested in it at all despite a furious marketing campaign & massive 'nxt gen' hype
It's getting 1 ?good game this year while competition getting plenty of releases
If i need to bet on a flopped console it wld b xbox

HaveAsandwich1296d ago

it's not coming back. it's going to get topped by the ps4.

xxShadow-Shockxx1296d ago

Only Because Sony wasn't supplying enough PS4's, so obviously it wasn't gonna beat the xbox one in that month. sony was releasing in a ton of places so that took a lot of sonys stock.

NeloAnjelo1296d ago

So? No where else in the world though.

Pple are buying inferior hardware. What's the cost of 720p and 30fps? 100 bucks more. Soon more will realise this.

Pple are still queuing up for PS4s, with all selling out when stocked. Can't say the same for the BONE.

Joey_Leone1296d ago

Every store i went too, Best buy,Gamestop,Radioshack,Wal-Ma rt,Target, There's XboxOne's EVERYWHERE, Even the day one edition. These XboxOne systems aren't selling for S%#*. It's so bad even local SWAP-MEETS are trying to get rid of them. PS4 systems on the other hand are nowhere to be found, and if there are some ps4's available, it's selling for more than $450. These Xbox consumers are really delusional and never think before they speak. Just wait for Sony to restock American store shelves.

dale_denton1295d ago

it hurts doesn't it? there there.. it will be okay. just go back to playing your 720p 30fps games.

Keep going next gen sells (as I'm paused playing Xbox One) :)

torchic1296d ago (Edited 1296d ago )

why do people on this site use "sells" instead of "sales"? is it some American spelling or something?

it's horrible spelling, that.

HighResHero1296d ago

It's so common that I wonder if it's a translation glitch. No it's not a conventional or even popular unconventional American way of misspelling that word.

Spenok1296d ago

It has nothing to do with some american way of spelling it. It is literally just people who have no concept of how to spell correctly. ESPECIALLY when it comes to spelling online.

Far too many people don't know the difference between then and than, to and too, there and their, or even your and you're.

It's frustrating to see. Especially on social media sites. Gets on my nerves lol.

MRMagoo1231296d ago (Edited 1296d ago )

LMFAO i have seen people use sells incorrectly so many times , they seem to use sells where sales should be and sales where sells should be. It seems to be as prevalent as the people that use aks instead of ask in America.

Sells is used as such lifeisgamesok "bob sells cakes" "john often sells his drugs to hookers"

Sales is used as such "How many million more sales will PS4 get compared to the Xbone" "I hear Sony has sales often on PSN plus" hope that clears it up.

I wish ppl could bubble me up for "educational" lol
