PS4 got a big shipment this week. Looks like demand is still limited by supply somewhat.

Yes, also interesting that Sony somehow manages to sell more units even though supplies are more limited

Not looking good for M$, they can't allow this to continue to lose America would be a huge blow but other than releasing a kinectless xboxone to get the price down I'm not sure what they can do.

Even that won't make up for the lack of power in the xbox so may not change things that much.

Yea because when sony tells you. Without a preorder you will not fnd one because supply is limited so get one now fast!
EVERYONE regards it as truth

Buy when another certain company was having stock shortags everyone claimed they were only doing it to creat false demand

You guys are pathetic

I always laugh at thought of North America as MS territory.

From 1996 to 2001 the PS1 sold exceptionally well in NA, Sony owned NA.

From 2001 to 2007 the PS3 sold 3 times as many Xbox's, Sony owned NA again.

From 2008 to 2014 Sony lost it's dominance, so now according to the fanboys, NA is MS territory, lol

Sony = 11 years of NA dominance
MS = 7 years of NA dominance

Today The PS4 hasn't come close to selling like the old 3 to 1 ratio in NA, or 5 to 1 in the world.

PS4...490k per week into 53 countries
X1....380k per week into 13 countries @ $100 more

I don't see why you always try to use the consoles per country averages. It would make sense if they were all getting supplied with an equal amount of consoles, but they aren't so it isn't accurate.

Didn't MS sold 3.9 million Xbox One?
Because when I had the NA and the EU they don't get close to 3 millions...
Are they selling in other countries that we don't know?

You also forgot to mention that people weren't struggling to pay their mortgages in those years that PS dominated like that. US is finally starting to make a comeback and it will take some time no doubt, but those 3:1 numbers may very well be coming back sooner than later buddy.

Sony CHOSE to put 100% of their effort into launching in North America first, because it's the largest market on earth.

Get this through your head noobs. The best gaming company in the world is undoubtedly Sony. Thats why i have been loyal 100% since PS1

PS1 raped n64 (Both by using CD's and shear sales)

PS2 murderd the XBX classic and Gamecube (SALES)

PS3 faced a 90(0) steep climb and still again proved to release the BEST first party and third party support against the wii and 360 (sales did not beast because again steep climb for sony)

PS4 is destroying

Also the argument that sony shipped to 53 countries and xbx sold to 13 is crazy because if i have 100,000 units of a device produced I can only sell 100,000 units even if is ship it to 120 countries. Its just that ill ship less to every country BUT I WILL STILL SELL 100,000 units.

Well, the 9% increase is either an increase in demand or an increase in stock. And sense there were no big releases, I think its fair to say its an increase in stock for the PS4. For the Xbox One we know there is stock so it represents a 20% decrease in demand week over week.

So that Xboxone sales lead in December was short lived. All the PS4 needs to do to expand on that half a million lead is to stay in stock.

I'm actually shocked that Forza, Ryse and Dead Rising 3 have all outsold Killzone in America.
mhunterjr  +   660d ago
Why surprised about Forza? Not that these titles go head to head, but Forza has consistently outsold killzone. it has a bigger fan base.

Also Launching along side bf4 and cod doesnt do killzone any favors
GusBricker  +   660d ago
No reason really. I put it in because it was 1 of the 3 major retail exclusives for the Xbox One.

DevilishSix  +   659d ago
Why would you be shocked that Forza, Ryse, and Dead Rising ousold Killzone in America? Killzone launched along side BF4 and COD Ghosts so the fps genre was saturated at launch on the PS4.
christocolus  +   660d ago
I guess the hype is over.Exclusive ip is what will push sales of both consoles from this point onwards.


Yeah i agree. Some exceptional multiplats will definitly move a few consoles but not as much as exclusives will.

The launch hype has died down and its obvious this decline in sales isnt just in the us its also hapening in the uk. Alot of gamers are still playing their ps3 and 360s and dont see the need to upgrade,until they start moving over we wont see huge monthly sales figures anymore like we saw at launch period. may be till black friday and the holliday season(dec).

Exclusives play a far more vital role than multiplats in console sales.
#6 (Edited 660d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(26) | Report | Reply
Eonjay  +   660d ago
Nope. The top selling game on both platforms is still... you guessed it COD. Exclusives are nice, but the real system sellers are all multiplats. I can't believe that GTA 5 sold 32 million, but yeah, thats another multiplat utterly destroying all exclusives.
fonger08  +   660d ago
I can't believe someone finally said this... you sir deserve a bubble and virtual high-five. I've been saying this for years, games like Infamous, Uncharted, Pikmin, God of War, Gears of War, while fantastic games and sell really well for 1st party titles, typically don't push consoles out the door like COD or GTA. While arguments can be made for the Marios, Gran Turismos, or Halos for spiking console demand... they are usually the exception more than the rule.

Mulitplats will sell consoles, exclusives will sell the console tied to it, the more exclusives a console has, the more attractive it becomes.

Why would you buy a console where multiplats are the same, but exclusives are weaker? huh, XBOX360?

Now last week's XBO win makes sense to me. There just wasn't enough PS4s in the market place for Sony to outsell Microsoft. The PS4 increase is not because of a specific game, so it seems to me like it is a result of pent up demand.

100k unit difference in a generation where each system will sell an estimated 100 MILLION units somehow equals that the Xbox isn't selling well?

It's looks like it's fine to me.
captainexplosion  +   660d ago
Its funny you mention the 100K USA difference yet cite the 100M WORLDWIDE estimate. Shouldnt your use the Worldwide sales figure that has the PS4 comfortably in the lead with a 50% advantage even with supply constraints and not yet releasing in Japan?

The 360 destroyed the PS3 in America 43M to 26M and in the UK the 360 outsold the PS3 8.8M to 5.8M. Yet the PS3 outsold the 360 in global sales. If the XBone is losing in territories it easily won last gen, territories it is in stock but the PS4 is still hard to find, how will the 360 do in territories that the PS3 easily won in like Japan, Australia, and the rest of Europe?

Sony did a good job woth everything sp they deserve the sales, but xbox is great too, they just need to earn the gamers back.

You know, I'm right there with you on that. I don't get the circle jerk thing myself. I'm more of a triangle or trapeze jerk kinda guy tbh. Anything with angles I can tolerate.

I have had it with these effing circle jerks!
Hicken  +   660d ago
But PS4 isn't gonna sell just a few million more. It will have done that by the end of this year, at the current rate. That will become a bigger and bigger deal as the generation wears on. Generally speaking, the console that sells the most is the "winner," and the winner has pretty heavy influence on the industry.

Remember the 360 parity clause?

The circle jerk is also due to the jerk attitude xbox fans have had for the whole past generation. You know full well how you and yours have acted. What's transpiring now is simply the backlash from that.

It'd be nice if folks speed acting like Sony fans should suddenly be so much more mature than xbox fans were to them all this time.

The constant whining about it is really pretty sad.
DanielGearSolid  +   660d ago
To put it simply if the X1 doesn't absolutely destroy the Ps4 in the US the gap will keep growing

360 had to sell almost 15mil more units in the US, just to keep up with Ps3 worldwide

Clarence  +   660d ago
Actually the PS4 numbers are much higher, seeing as these numbers are from vgchartz.

Vgchartz has proven to be full of $h!t when it comes to Playstation. The facts is last gen they under tracked PS3 numbers. They are surely under tracking PS4 numbers as well.

Last gen M$ had that year head start, vgchartz could make numbers all day. Now it's a toe to toe race. It's much harder to cover up the a$$ kicking that Sony is putting on M$ this gen.

Vgchartz has never been %100 accurate.

You haven't even been on this site a whole year. It definitely wasn't just about the games when you joined last April, so unless this is a new account, you're talking out of your rear.

Even then, you'd still be wrong, as this site was full of trolls and xbox fanboys even before I joined. Ask anybody who's actually been around that long, and they'll tell you the console wars have pretty much always been slice and well here. It's only now that xbox is on the short end of the graphics, sales, and PR stick that people like you wasn't to complain. I'll bet you weren't campaigning for peace with your old account.

What goes around comes around. Xbox fans talked a lot of trash and moved a lot of goalposts last gen while the 360 had various leads over the PS3. Those chickens have come home to roost, now that the PS4 holds significant advantages in every possible way.

You've got two choices. You can leave and find some place to soothe your bruised ego. Or you can follow the advice given in the immortal words of Adam Orth: deal with it.
