Various details from the May 2014 NPD report have come in thanks to reliable NPD leaker "creamsugar".
Calm down people! http://img.pandawhale.com/p...
Calm down? Ps4 nearly sold more than the xbox one, 360 and wii u COMBINED!!! no wonder we havnt heard a peep from Microsoft... NO PR spin about zombies killed miles driven etc To nearly beat all of those consoles combined is unbelievable
Why is it again that you would be so excited about this news?
Now thats called a DOMINATION!
These sales shall definitely allow me to experience more excitement while playing my games! I can barely contain myself...
@Dlconspiracy Am I excited or more gobsmacked? As you seem to know my emotions better than me OK then..
You don't get the irony, this is like covering the sun with a finger, the gap will get wider, MS need to gamble even more and offer more than Sony, just playing catch up is not enough, not even close.
PS4 practically dominated and destroyed the competition. o_O
flawless victory for Sony
Xbox is getting spanked like a red-headed stepchild. In it's own backyard, no less.
Umm.. What? Am I missing something here? There are no console totals in this leak of a prediction.. It gets more pathetic by the day around here
and yet, it still won't have any games until 2015.. have fun with your sales numbers while i'm playing Mario Kart 8. :-)
I'm interested to see how June's numbers come out and if the PS4 can keep up it's domination. MSFT is banking on the $399 SKU doing well but I for one still haven't seen anything that I want on Xbone that I can't play on the PS4 or PC. Have no interest in Halo either unless they gave the whole collection free to XBL subscribers.
@bonebone, I seem to recall the wiiu having relatively little games until this month. And, contrary to fanboy belief, there is a great selection of games on ps4. More than it's biggest competitor's library. Don't get me wrong, love my wind waker wiiu, but I hold no delusions that it struggled.
Can I ask a personal question...why do sales matter so much to you....do you get a piece of the pie for every system sold...why do people go bananas for sales???I would understand if someone makes money on every console being sold but why do people bitch about sales...I dont understand
@lunatic It matters because the bigger userbase is more enticing for developers. Anyways these numbers wont really be interesting until november/december.
@BoneBOne Only took the Wii U almost 2yrs to get a game that sells though.. and don't worry BoneBone, the Wii U will be back where it usually is come the July NPD. Mario Kart 8 (great game that it is) simply won't move the kind of units like yesteryear. What's coming out between July and December though?
Where exactly did NPD say PS4 sold more than xbone and wii-u combined? Or any actual sales numbers? NPD are professionals and don't release crap like... "- 200k > PS4 > 100k > XBO > Wii U > 360 > 50k > PS3 > Wii" The source linked in this post is gamingeverything.com which then links to neogaf.com who then links to gamesindustry.biz and they have no mention of console sales numbers other than... "NPD noted that Sony's PS4 was the top selling console for the fifth month in a row, and while "much of May 2014's hardware growth was due to Xbox One and PS4, there was also year-over-year growth for the Wii U, and PS Vita,” said NPD analyst Liam Callahan, who pointed to the successful bundles for Mario Kart 8 on Wii U and Borderlands 2 for the PS Vita." Soo.... does anyone have actual numbers?
@Arkardo: Can't argue with Leslie Nielson :D
God I loved that guy. May he rest in peace. :( OT: I'm surprised that the PS4 outsold the XB1 and the Wii U with their sales combined. Sony is doing really well with the system.
A solid month for sony. lets hope they keep momentum still too early cheer victory.
watchdogs 0% on wiiU, lol.
Ps4 version alone of Watchdogs has sold more than mk8 confirmed! ;)
Its pretty easy to have sales that low when the game don't release to the fall on wii u!!!!!lol Thats like saying super smash bros wiiu zero sales may 2014 I wonder why?
No matter how each console sells it won't dictate how much I enjoy them. The way these guys are celebrating the sales figures, you would think they actually got commission on each unit sold.
Even though I bought a PS4 over Xbox One doesn't mean I support one over the other. This Xbox hate is disgusting and immature as hell. Not only did Phil Spencer right a wronged ship, but you Sony fanboys are oblivious to any logic or reason because of biased ideals. Not only did Sony disappoint at E3 this year, but you idiots ragged MS for TV on consoles and Kinect, but you gave Sony a pass at their push on the PS Camera and Sony TV at the conference. Kind of the same way you did when Sony started charging for playing games online like Microsoft. You fools clapped when Sony announced YouTube was coming to PSN when MS had this 4 years ago. How moronic is that? What a bunch of hypocrites.
Although I desperately hope for a US Vita revival, I know for certain that every so called "insider" on NeoGAF is completely full of beans.
PSVita sold around 50k in May.
According to what source? NeoGAF? lol. That place is full of more sh** than a barnyard. I am 100% certain that their "reliable source" Creamsugar is pulling false numbers directly from his behind.
Read the article, dude. Last month official from NPD was 3k for PSV. If you don't have some smart opinion to say, go home. Anyway, if insiders gave false info on GAF, they get bannhamner. So, Cremsugar is reliable for now.
@ imt558 - there is a high probability that he is already home.
NPD never delivered any "official" Vita sales last month. NeoGAF frequently allowed the posting Thuway topics who has now been proven to be a fraud, and CBOAT topics, who is right less than 50% of the time. Creamsugar is full of it and I know this for certain. And NeoGAF has no credibility and are now being shunned by the industry...except for Sony who gave them a shout out at their E3 press conference. Gee, I wonder why?
Vita is still dead. I'm predicting a big drop next month.
According to some dude sitting at a desk saying that it sold 50k units in one month. When will people learn to wait for the Manufacturers to release their own sales numbers instead of believing what the biased click bait fiends say?
MultiConsoleGamer, you're the type of a**hole that likes to bash sources, but can't provide a link or credible one your damn self. Wants to question everything you don't agree with, but unable to substantiate your point. This is also known as a cry baby and child.
big Vita bump''' 56,000......lmao. This not much bump. Edit:creamsugar is a reliable guy.
You're not so hot with numbers, are you? It sold 3,000 last month. So you have this months number, and you have last months number, and then you...oh, wait, you were just trolling Vita as usual. smdh
He cheers when the WiiU sells 20k ;)
"He cheers when the WiiU sells 20k ;)" Pretty much. I want all to do better, but I find ritsuka's comment comical.
hi multiconsolegamer, i actually read a while back MS invited Neogaf admins to their press conference but they declined.
I actually saw the post. It was Larry Hryb who gave them the offer. It was basically bait. Larry knows NeoGAF is a Sony PR site, and that was proven during Sony's E3 presentation. Funny stuff. They wanted to give props to a forum but instead destroyed their credibility by confirming what we already knew. Now I have to post a disclaimer... I love Sony products and hate Sony PR. In the past year I bought another PS3 (third), a PS4, a Sony TV and a Sony camera. I just like being blunt, truthful and ruffling fanboy feathers. Somebody has to do it.
@MultiConsoleGamer "Larry knows NeoGAF is a Sony PR site, and that was proven during Sony's E3 presentation." The only bias I've seen on GAF is towards game developers (A lot of Brown nosing as soon as a dev comments). I think your pulling this "Sony payroll" out of thin air to be honest.
@multiconsole You had me until the Major Nelson side step. Now it appears you're just reaching.
Yeah, of course. Sony throwing a shout out from E3 is proof of evil intent and a Sony/Gaf conspiracy, but MS inviting Gaf to E3 as their guests is a sly ploy to prove Gaf is biased, according to MultiConsoleGamer. The pretzel logic, delusions, and confirmation bias is amazing.
@Multi - "I just like being blunt, truthful and ruffling fanboy feathers." Making stuff up isn't being blunt or truthful, though it will ruffle fanboy feathers at times. "NeoGAF is a Sony PR site, and that was proven during Sony's E3 presentation." I guess Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit are all part of Sony's PR machine too…? They were mentioned in the same sentence as NeoGAF, after all. What's been proven is that your tinfoil hat needs adjustment.
Why does every fanboy feel the need to claim to be a multiconsole owner?
True story Willio
Neogaf is about as corrupt as any site can be. Here are some interesting threads exposing their fraud. http://misterxmedia.livejou... Here's a great article pointing out massive Hypocracy. http://www.crappyreviews.co...
For one who likes to revel in debunking conspiracies and PR, reading some of your comments leads me to believe you've concocted some of your own. Kinda ironic in a way. lol. You say not to trust Neogaf or Sony PR yet you are but a mere poster on 'n4g'. Who to believe, decisions, decisions. You believing the SonyGAF thing to the height of 100% certainty is also kinda hilarious and gives off some janky MisterX vibes. Also as disclaimer: I'm not calling you out as a fanboy or anything but you've got to realise what you're typing is just as much hot nonsense as what you claim is.
@ pyramidshead "You say not to trust Neogaf or Sony PR yet you are but a mere poster on 'n4g'. Who to believe, decisions, decisions". Does that mean that we should believe only what "Big Brother" tells us to believe or do and not what we think is correct merely because we are a meager citizen. You are basically saying that just because someone is a lowly poster on a forum that they must be wrong and someone with a personal agenda and the money to back it must be right. Ever heard of Watergate? Ever heard of the Holocaust? An individual can be correct and still be a small whisper in a crowd of screamers. So instead of writing off what someone says because they are a mere poster on a forum, wait for an official report from the credible manufacturer themselves rather than a third party site that lists no real credible sources on their report.
You took that a whole lot deeper than I ever intended. I was just pointing out the glaring irony that makes his comments practically worthless. I'm not sure why he just doesn't keep them to himself. Bit of a waste of time typing out stuff like that and questioning 'credibility' when he/she doesn't have any either. Food for thought.
"For one who likes to revel in debunking conspiracies…" I don't know what he normally does but lately he seems to be creating conspiracies not debunking them.
MSBAUSTX reads 1984 in his middle school English class and now he's an expert on "Big Brother," class warfare and general conspiracy theory. Got it.
The biggest thing to take from this, cross gen games are killing it on next gen. Take note publishers. Don't hold your game back because you don't want to ignore that huge userbase. People are buying on next gen, this gen went at least a year too long and we are buying with or wallets.
I feel like people who went out to buy new consoles are more than willing to go out and buy new games for them versus the people who have an entire library of old games to sift through. Seems like common sense really but of course publishers only see the install base.
I think a lot of people waited for next gen. Cross-gen is a given in the last year of a consoles life, and the first year of a new one. Some people just don't invest in the older console anymore either through becoming bored with it, or just wanting a better experience down the road. All I know is that there is still a lot of games coming out for PS3 this year, and at least early into next. My backlog will never go away.:(
I think the industry has known for quite some time that the 'hardest' of the hardcore gamers are individuals whom are day 1 buyers of both hardware and software. Likely the same subset of gamers whom preordered a new generation console are the same who purchase new games day one or have preordered. I believe that is the primary reason Next gen sales are often higher for the first month of a multiplat game(s).
xbox one 29%
but i thought PS4 gamers don't buy games.
PS4 the only console which sold over 100k
Wait a couple of minutes until Truefan1 or another Xbox fanboy comes along to tell you it sold better because PS4 haz no gamez so they need to buy any game that comes out :D
lol its funny how people don't count multi-platforms titles as games anymore. If people only buy consoles just for the exclusives and exclusives only then that's crazy. Give me indies,3rd,and 1st parties titles on my system and I will have plenty of games too play while they wait..
Maths helps. Xbox has sold roughly 62% the number of consoles of PS4. PS4 sold 575000 copies, Xbox sold 362500 copies... so Xbox sells 63% the number of Watch_dogs copies as the PS4. It's entirely proportional. Using a highly anticipated multiplatform game, sold equally in porportion to console numbers, as a means to disprove the fact that Xbox has a marginally higher game uptake is laughable.
I think Truefan was last seen doing damage control on IGN. He'll be back though to spew his MS propaganda (probably once the dust settles).
congrats to sony keep uo the good sales. i will continue to play the best multiplats and exclusives on ps4. happy gaming.
Good to see Watch Dogs doing so well. I have yet to actually buy it myself though. Just can't afford it yet but I will be getting it soon. I really cannot wait for Destiny though and if Watch Dogs sold that much better on PS4 over XBOX One then the numbers for Destiny will most likely show an even larger gap since all the advertising is being done for the PS4 version. It also should help the PS4 sales because of the Destiny bundle and I wouldn't be surprised if Destiny is the big must have game for this holiday over even COD.
After playing the Alpha I couldn't agree with you more.... I certainly know I'll be picking up Destiny over any other FPS coming out this year. In fact after playing the Alpha I wonder to myself if it is even possible for games like COD to stay relevant anymore. Destiny feels like the future of FPS.
I think companies really will have to start rethinking how they handle MP and SP in FPS games. I know many skip the SP in COD and do nothing but MP all the time. For me that got old after awhile. With Destiny I love how everything is so mixed together. If you want to go off on your own you can, want to do some great Co-Op you can do that too, and then if you want PvP that is there but it also can help you unlock higher ranks and other loot you can use back in the other parts of the game. That to me is a great way to make sure people invest time in every aspect of the game and really gives people good value for their money.
Off the praise from alpha (didn't get in) I went and preordered the game for ps4 so I could get into the beta. I usually hate fps...but I like large worlds. environments.
Hey jeff in my opinion its more of a hype and maybe you should try it first, I was a little disappointed by some of the actions not included but thats me. Maybe its the game your looking for, I was looking for gta multiplayer and watch dogs is not that. GTA 5 comes later this year for ps4 :)
