PS4 Games Outselling Xbox One 3:1 on Play.com

According to Rakuten’s Play.com the New Year period was an easy battle in the long-running console war. Sony came out the victor with three times as many PS4 game sales as Xbox One games. This figure came from Play.com’s sales on videogames from 1 December 2013 to 17 January 2014.

And it's only the beginning.... Japan Launch incoming.

aceitman1355d ago

I cant wait just to see how well it sells there and put a bigger gap In sales world wide

MysticStrummer1355d ago

Japan will definitely be Sony territory but I was surprised to see the low number of PS3s that were sold there last gen. PS4 will probably do better though. Either way, the gap will certainly widen.

amiga-man1355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

3:1 is a big gap, advantage Sony.

showtimefolks1355d ago

aceitman

its only gonna get bigger

MysticStrummer

I think ps4 is gonna be Huge in Japan and could make the gap too wide to cover for MS.

PeaSFor1355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

wait, ... what is that weird noise in the background?

...do you hear it?

oh nvrmind, its only Truefan1 of Xbox agitating his little fist in the air and getting blue in the face with his blatant rage coming out of his ears.

At MS' headquarters at this point:
"Brace yourself for impact!"

Grave1355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

It's going to be ... INCREDIBULL!!!

Rainstorm811355d ago

You can buy games when u have an extra 100$ in ur pocket.

100$ price difference will keep rearing its ugly head for MS

Kribwalker1355d ago

This sales data is from a web based store like amazon in the uk.
If you use vgchartz(which I think is usually pretty close to accurate in some respects) it's 10mil to 8mil. So many flambait articles it's stupid

Kribwalker1355d ago

Funny how they changed the headline to add @play.com. Before it just said ps4 games outselling xbox one games 3-1

Bigpappy1355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

You guys are crazy. This you guys are so full of crap. These numbers are reported from the online store PLAY.COM website.

So the source of the news is wrong, and the headline is not even a RUMOR but a LIE. PS4 is leading sales. I don't see the need to dig for false info like this.

Hicken1355d ago

How is it a lie? Play.com obviously has a ratio of 3 PS4 games sold for every 1 XB1 game. Therefore, PS4 games are outselling XB1 games 3:1, just as the headline says.

Well, at least you didn't do like your friend above(alt account, perhaps?) and start tossing out VGChartz and claiming they're accurate this time around.

porkChop1355d ago

How is it a lie? The games on PS4 are outselling Xbox One games 3 to 1 on Play.com. What's so hard for you to understand about that? This has nothing to do with console sales or anything else.

GamersHeaven1355d ago

The truth shall set you free Bigpappy just #dealwithit

Bigpappy1355d ago

@ porkChop and Hicken: That on play.com was added was not there when I reported this. It said "PS4 Games Outselling Xbox One 3:1" it has since been fixed.

Hicken1355d ago

... it was in the description, just as it is now.

Titles are't supposed to tell you EVERYTHING. Their very purpose is to draw you into reading whatever it's about. That's when you find out, "Ohh, this is from Play.com."

And seriously, that was RIGHT UNDER the title. Even if you were coming from somewhere else, as soon as you clicked on the link to THIS page(not the article page), the little preview underneath the title explains that this is per Play.com's findings.

So, still not a lie.

Xbots don't buy games, they watch football! Ah it feels good to turn the tides!

Go watch your football!

Dehnus1354d ago

No I haven't and I don't act like I've been in a war either. Sony and MS fanboys need to stop acting like it is a Normandy thing. But I see I've already been reported again for daring to say something, while the worst trolls are allowed to run rampant here.

I do not watch Football btw, I"m from Europe, I don't see the point in running around in armoured suits for some full contact sport.. but that's just us Europeans..

I do find it more and more offensive to act like it is a war and people taking it this serious.

I think its great that games are selling well on both.

Sayai jin1355d ago

True. I am not surprised the ration is 3 to 1, it only make since since the console rate is about the same.

I am surprised to see attach rates this early on this gen. The numbers, if people care about them like that, will be interesting when both consoles have good library of games.

smoothop1355d ago

This site gets worse as the days go by, its shocking at how much they really are trying to destroy the Xbox. A bunch of blind sheep falling for these lame marketing tactics and they're to dumb to realize whats going on. All this site's aim is to make dumb peoples decision for them.

rarity1355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

If you have a problem with this website: http://xmfan.us/files/there... just sayin

smoothop1355d ago

I'm just saying that the site should be more professional and engage the gamer's not companies. There is a lot of scamming going on and its not hard to see.

MasterCornholio1355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

As for destroying Xbox, you can thank Microsoft's DRM policies and horrible unveiling for that. Because if the Xbox One never had those policies in the first place and the reveal was focused on gaming we would have a very different situation with the console.

MightyNoX1355d ago

You could always pitch your tent at Reddit/xboxone . Larry Hryb posts there. Although after the TR debacle, he's been absent as of late...

@smoothop

Is it blind to pay $100 more for inferior hardware that produces inferior visual capabilities than the PS4?
Is it blind to forget that MS screwed you over initially only to make a 180 when they realized they were going to self destruct?

Is it blind to say "Im getting an xbox because I always go with Xbox." Or "xbox was always better."

I personally, I bought a Nintendo when ps1 was out, I bought an Xbox when the PS2 was out, and i bought 360 when the ps3 was out but did eventually get a PS3. I was a founding member of RB in Metal Gear Online on PS3 for a few months and then sold my PS3 because at the time, all i ever did play was halo, gears and COD. I did my research, i knew PS4 was far more stronger and superior than the xbox one through the use of my EYES and BRAIN. Unfortunately all you do is talk garbage bs.

I have an extensive knowledge and expertise in computer hardware and software. Ive built the high end Gaming PC for the most minimal price possible $700 w i5 3570k @5.0ghz water sustained/32gb Ddr3 ram/ GTX 590 (dual gpu) / 1tb hdd/ 200gb SSD

I've known the difference between 1080p and 1440p when all you knew was sub 720p for 360 and ps3 and for that matter, all you still know is 720p on the xbox one thanks to your "blind" attributes. I also knew the difference between 60fps and 120fps on a correct monitor of 120hz to produce higher than 60fps @ 2560x1440p & 1920x1080p (this shit that xbox one will never do and ps4 also) whereas all you experience is a 30fps @1080p experience on your xbox where as Ps4 boys are laughing at your "blind" mind. I promise you things will worsen as time goes by, not by insulting you but because you refuse to accept. You will see more 720p to compensate for a higher FPS or 1080p and 30fps and none other except maybe a custom resolution lower than 1080.

Chris121355d ago

Do you know the difference between having games to play and not? XB1 has great exclusives to play hence the system is selling, not all consumers are blind sheep sold on numbers.

You're typical of someone who focuses on numbers, gamers want to play games and any true gamer will own both platforms. The need to 'win' and justify purchases is so out of hand with some people.

mcstorm1355d ago

@Chris12 your spot on but there is very little point of saying things in this site as it is just full off people who want to bash Nintendo and Sony. This is not a gaming web site any more its a lets talk down anything about the Xbox one and wiiu at every chance we get.

Why o why1355d ago

No need to do massive damage on him man.

Chrisgamerguy1355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

i dont care about specs. i care about games. i cant play killer instinct, dead rising 3, forza 5, and titanfall on ps4 so im sticking with x1

mediate-this1354d ago

Is it some ones fault because micro n sony made hardware that cant produce 1440p and 120fps?? I have both systems, i have both because there are exclusives for both that i know i can only experience if i had both. Believe you me, i would love to have these machines produce top fidelity graphics and frame rate.

Ps4 is stronger, and xbone is 50 percent weaker. I like the franchises that come out.

but correct me if i am wrong wasn't MS trying to buy positive media attention just recently?

also shouldn't the blame actually go on MS for trying to destroy their own Brand by the way they launched xbox one?

seedaripper19731355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

What's all this bullshit coming from the xbox camp about 'picking' on the poor ol' Xbone?? I've been on this site since the launch of the PS3 and EVERY article was set out to destroy it (along side the MSfanboys) well, that didn't happen, and here's a taste of your own medicine.

Malacath1355d ago

Yes N4G used to be a good site.

Now it only seems to exist to bash the xbox.

Platform bashing is just sad and immature.

I have an xbox. But while I hate the sad pathetic platform bashing fanboys I dont hate the ps4.

I find it sad that owners of one platform seem to have to hate the other.

Volkama1355d ago

The site is just a feed of games-related news from around the web, it hasn't really got an agenda or bias.

It is community driven, and parts of the community definitely push silly agendas and bias. It takes some pretty hefty moderation to keep a community in check, and that isn't here so just read the news you are interested in and don't fret about the fanboy bits :-)

JonnyBigBoss1355d ago

I hate how these so called gamers pledge allegiance to companies.

I own both consoles and they have unique qualities that make them great.

Wasn't this article posted a few days ago?

Gamer-401355d ago

It is not allowed to forget it, that the Ps4 in much more countries available officially than it X1. This data is not surprising because of this.

Only a free advertisement good all of it. Or they pay for this?

MightyNoX1355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

Can anybody translate for me? O__o

Edit: why do you speak like Yoda? I'm being serious... "Your mockery inserts in PS4" what does that even mean??

Edit: nice second edit there. Better, you're heading towards coherence. Keep at it. :)

Gamer-401355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

Your mockery inserts in the Ps4 small child.

zenezrail1355d ago

Irrelevant. I think Play.com is in the UK, or at most only in wider Europe? These sales only reflect that region, where both consoles are available.

Gamer-401355d ago

Absolutely not irrelevant.
52 countries VS 13 countries, this really big difference my friend.

BG115791355d ago

Funny thing dough, when comparing the countries where both consoles are sold, the PS4 has bigger sales numbers than the Xbone in all countries they both are sold, except for the US and probably Brazil(where they are at equal number sales?).

So how come Xbone's number managed come close to PS4 numbers? There is something illogical in the Xbone sale's numbers and it seems it's starting to show in January sales numbers.

Volkama1355d ago

Play.com were a pretty cheap place to shop for uk gamers once. Then legislation changed, and jersey based etailers lost their big tax advantages so it's not so hot now.

Still, UK is PS4 territory at the moment so the ratio might be representative

zenezrail1355d ago

This data does not represent all of these countries everyone is talking about. It is just the UK. The extra countries have nothing to do with these sales numbers, at all.
Also, seriously, can anyone tell me what countries the Xbox has yet to launch in, where PS4 is already available, that they see as key to Microsoft's business? Isn't it Microsoft's fault they didn't launch there anyway?

MasterCornholio1355d ago

Even if both consoles released in the same country's the PS4 would still outsell the Xbox One. You can look at the numbers if you wish.

Gamer-401355d ago

Yes I know, but this is not due to the games, but for the 100 dollars cheaper, that the ps4 than the X1. Yet far from the end of it.

kingdom181355d ago

That is completely irrelevant as, those countries count for at most 500k. All of those countries are a very small part of the gaming market, the PS4 is still over selling the Xbox One in its strongholds, like the US, Uk, ect.
