The Winner In The War Between Xbox One, PS4 And Wii U Is...Everyone

Sony on Thursday announced it has cumulatively sold more than 7 million units of its Playstation 4 console. Meanwhile, Microsoft has reported no real sales figures for Xbox One, but has announced 5 million units shipped to retailers since the console launched.

These numbers have renewed interest in the next-generation console wars, leading many to again question which of the three -- Playstation 4, Xbox One or Nintendo's Wii U -- has really come out on top. But ultimately, does it matter? The new generation of consoles can be considered a success for almost everyone involved (well, maybe not Nintendo), including especially consumers.

Sony already ended the console wars when they announced that the PS4 reached 7million consoles sold. #DealWithIt ;)

You must be great at parties aren't you?

lifeisgamesok803d ago

The way I see it Xbox One is winning games wise...

But PS4 is winning Popularity wise

Many people that own both have said they play Xbox One more

avengers1978802d ago

@lifesagame you mean that the PS4 has way more games, by like 20 as of now, and you mean that you say things like many people that own both claim they play XB1 more.

PS4 winning games wise, and sales wise, and will continue to lead in worldwide sales for the remainder of the generation.

And with Nintendo coming out with kart and smash this year MS better hope there sales still stay above The Wii U

@Avengers

PS4 has more indies, big woop. When it comes to retail exclusives, X1 drastically outnumbers PS4 in quantity right now as well as the future. Saying PS4 has more games is like saying the Ouya has more games.

scott182802d ago

I don't have time for next gen... still playing FFVII and Chrono trigger on the PSP. Just remake those games on PS4 and I will be happy.

True_Samurai802d ago

@Infected Xbox one is tagged in this is not only a playstation article. More games doesn't equal to quality and right now Xbox has that

randomass171802d ago

@LOL_WUT

Isn't this a trolling comment? Why does this guy have so many bubbles? :/

MysticStrummer802d ago

The console wars are clearly not over, but the fact that many more people seem to prefer what PS4 is offering is obviously eating a few N4G users up inside. George is just repeating his Ouya joke now, and lifeisgames is making up stats without actually giving the stats.

Clunkyd802d ago

@Georgenoob

I assume that your console for last gen was ps3, right? Because it has the most quality games.

Army_of_Darkness802d ago (Edited 802d ago )

As long as the ps4 stays ahead of the xbone by 3-4 million consistently, I'll be happy cause I know the ps4 games will not likely be watered down in favour of the weaker console this gen, plus it will keep Sony on their toes.

MeLoveRamen802d ago

@lifeisgamesok,georgeenoob, the funny thing is, is that the ps4 is drastically outselling the xbone with "no games" what to do think is gonna happen when Sony's big first party studio games come out like Naughty dog, Sony Santa Monica, and Media Molecule, its gonna be a massacre.

Dan_scruggs802d ago

One wonders if you thought the same thing when the Wii was crushing the PS3 and the Xbox 360.

Can't we say we all win? Or is that not how we play this game?

KonsoruMasuta802d ago (Edited 802d ago )

No, see what you have to do is love one, and only one, console. Then you must shun the rest and troll any positive article about any console that isn't the one of your choice.

You must brag about the power of your console and graphics - until a PC gamer comes into the conversation anyways. After that you brag about exclusives.

jebabcock802d ago (Edited 802d ago )

Exactly! Controversy drives revenue for a site like n4g. Actually most sites capitalize on over use of dramatics. If there were no blind fanboy trolls commenting there would be no closet trolls to call them out and feign impartiality while still clearly pushing their own agenda. Not to mention the retorts from other equally blind trolls that snowball with each controversial post. Sure every once in a while there is an intelligent comment but n4g would go bust if that was all there was.

We should thank the trolls because they sustain this site and keep it thriving as a place where we can find out all the juicy rumors going on in the gaming industry...

This should be declared hug a troll week to show our appreciation for their relentlessly delusional and selfish efforts that keep this site alive and kicking each day...

Taking wagers on whether trolls will disagree with this or not.

On topic I think any one who plays a game they enjoy is a winner but this site is not about that now is it?

seatunt802d ago (Edited 802d ago )

That's a lot of bragging I'd have to do... I guess all I got is an epic 17hr gaming run this weekend playing; Don't Starve, infamous, windwaker hd, and then Forza?? Yes I have se major A.D.D. issues but I enjoyed every last second.

Ghost_Nappa802d ago

Really people? Diagrees for saying we all win and that its ok to like multiple consoles

LOGICWINS802d ago

"Can't we say we all win?"

Unfortunately no...not on N4G where you need to be fiercely passionate about Sony to fit in. If I had the time/money, I'd be gaming on the Wii U, PS4, Vita, and Xbox One and enjoy every bit of it.

It's sad that in 2014 we're still talking about which console is "winning" the console war as opposed to celebrating the plethora of options we have as gamers...at affordable prices IMO.

seatunt802d ago

@logicwins lol I've kinda noticed the trend here. It's ok I like playstation as well... But I can't swear allegiance to just one company though. I just enjoy gaming too much to get caught up in that stuff.

randomass171802d ago

As a Sony fan, it sucks to see people basically crap on anything that isn't Sony. Not all the Sony fans here are like that, but unfortunately there are. In fact, I've seen some Xbox and Nintendo fans like that too. It's got some bad stuff all around the spectrum. Hopefully the community can balance itself out through empathy.

To all those that watched & enjoyed TehnoBuffalo's "The Console Wars" 12rd battle between the 360/Ps3, The next version is out between XB1/Ps4 see here on Youtube.

Massacred803d ago

Summation: We all win here. Consoles arn't dying, their death has been exaggerated.

frostypants802d ago (Edited 802d ago )

The only people that think console gaming is dying are people who think the audience for Candy Crush is the same as the audience for "real" games. These are people who have no more than a casual understanding of gaming.

As you point out, it's quite the opposite. Consoles are trending upward in popularity, and have been since the 1980s. There is no sign of that changing.

elhebbo16802d ago (Edited 802d ago )

not in the tech sense but it is part of the 8th generation of consoles.

@KonsoruMasuta they could believe whatever they want but even on the wikipedia page it saids that the Wii U is eight gen. I couldn't care less really, Mario Kart 8 and SMB will be so much fun and in the end all that matter are the games.

KonsoruMasuta802d ago (Edited 802d ago )

Forget it. The people don't understand what a console genration is. We are eight generations from the first generations of consoles. That makes the WiiU eighth gen.

Random fact: Did you know Nintendo is the only console company from the first generation that still makes consoles?
The Nintendo Color TV one of the first consoles on the market.

They skipped the 2nd generation though, but they returned the third generation with the NES.

I should also add that Nintendo won the the first gen.

MysticStrummer802d ago

Yeah I haven't been a Nintendo fan for a long time, but WiiU is 8th gen whether people like it or not.

@Konsoru - The Magnavox Odyssey was out 5 years before Nintendo released the Color TV.

KonsoruMasuta802d ago (Edited 802d ago )

@Mystic- Notice how I said "one of the first" not "the first". I know it was not the first, but it was in fact one of the first, it was still a part of the first generation.

MysticStrummer802d ago (Edited 802d ago )

So are you putting the Atari 2600 in the second generation? I'm not sure many would agree with that, but whatever.

Edit - I take it back. Just looked up the subject on Wiki and they don't have the 2600 as a 1st gen console. You win. : )

Edit Edit - Well… looking at another Wiki article, it has the 2600 listed as the last of the 1st generation. I am confuse. You still win because I give up in confusion.

If it cant steam my veggies it cant do shit XD

frostypants802d ago (Edited 802d ago )

The Steambox was a great idea before they watered it down so much that it lost its entire purpose. Now it's just a PC with SteamOS. It solves no problems for anyone.

Chespin802d ago

Too busy playing games on them all to care. xD

HappyWithOneBubble802d ago

If you too busy why you comment?

Chespin802d ago

My point is... If you own them all you don't give a shit who is "Winning" or "Losing".

truechainz802d ago (Edited 802d ago )

The fact that there are disagrees to this shows what is wrong with gamers. If he/she enjoys games on all consoles and that bothers you, then it sounds like a personal problem for you all.

kingxtreme81802d ago

How absolutely right you are!

While so many spend their time complaining, fighting and trolling, some of us are enjoying all of the consoles and games out there.

I know that my PS4, XBO, Wii U, PC, Vita and 3DS are giving me a steady stream of awesome games to play. For that I am proud, thankful and excited.

I so wish people would wake the hell up and realize how incredible it is to be a gamer nowadays. With so many boxes that play so many good freakin' games, every gamer should be happy.

Priestwithgun802d ago

You forgot to mention PC
Bubole for an otherwise great comment though
