Sony confirms victory for this month too after Kinectless XB1 came out too damn!

imt558737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

I bloody knew it. Anyway, rumor said that Wii U sales results are close to Xbone sales results in June. And that's not good!

I told something similar in thread about Xbone double sales jump and i get trolling bubble.

PlayStation 4 is seriously unveatable, great for Sony to be dominating this gen

"Wait for the DRM reversals"

"Wait for Titanfall"

"Wait for E3"

"Wait for Kinectless Xbone"

Wonder what's next. lol

Microsoft is in for a serious beat down when the Destiny and The Last Of Us bundle hits.

EDIT: Watch Dogs selling more on the 360 than the Bone??? lol http://d24w6bsrhbeh9d.cloud...

bicfitness737d ago

Everyone that wasn't Truefan knew it. All the price-cut did was staunch the bleeding. Next month X1 will be dropping its weekly average once more.

Darkstares737d ago

I figured as much since Microsoft came out early to say sales doubled (for XB1) and didn't mention being number one in the U.S.

bigbic737d ago

This is huge, just for the fact it is the US, Xbox prime territory last gen.

GribbleGrunger737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

Well ... I think we can say with reasonable certainty that the XB1 will never catch the PS4 in the US. Europe/Japan? Let's not even go there. Congratulations Sony on winning another generation.

And then there's this to add insult to injury:

Kayant737d ago

Well well what a surprise /s

I told Axios2 there will be a shell shock for some. http://n4g.com/comments/red...
Especially with XB1 only beating X360 with Wolf:TNO in multiplats.

XB1 will have a chance to win around holidays maybe before then not so much.

@imt558

I don't think Wii U is close to XBO in NPD numbers, but I pretty sure it outsold the XBO worldwide for June.

I called this though. The PS4 is just HYPE TRAIN EXTREME. June was it's worse selling month so far, and it comfortably outsold the Wii U and XBO both of which should have had their best selling month in a long time.

My calculations for global numbers are:

PS4: 440k
Wii U: 304k
XBO: 254k

And if true the summer belongs to Sony.

The good news for MS is that they have a strong line-up this holiday as well as their global launch which should get their worldwide numbers averaging around 300k per month once the launch hype settles.

Nintendo obviously just needs to keep dropping at least 1 huge franchise per season. MK8 for the summer, something for the fall, Smash for the holiday, something for Spring 2015, something Summer 2015, something for Fall 2015, and Zelda for holiday 2015.

While the PS4 is dominating the good news is that the Wii U and XBO are still healthy.

MysticStrummer737d ago

"Truefan put his pride on the line."

The equivalent of playing a penny slot machine once.

Congrats to Sony.

Now if only vgchartz would report XB1 as having won my day would be complete.

choujij737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

Here's some of the NPD figures that were posted on NeoGAF:

NPD Sales Results for June 2014

2. Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)
3. Minecraft (360, PS3)

10. Grand Theft Auto V (360, PS3)

Hardware:

PS4: #1 best selling
3DS: 150K (up 55% over May, was 225K last June)
Wii U: ~140K (up 233% over last June)

Mr Pumblechook737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

PS4 is number 1 selling in USA.

What is shocking is journalists with NPD figures claiming of-the-record that the Wii U OUTSOLD the XBOX ONE IN JUNE.

EDIT: Microsoft's news yesterday that the Xbox One doubled May sales in not based on NPD numbers but on Microsoft's own internal figures. This likely means that ACCORDING TO NPD THE XBOX ONE DID NOT DOUBLE MAY'S SALES.

Let's stop Sugar Coating things TitanFall was the most hyped game of this generation and even with that game The Xone couldn't beat The PS4, so unless you guys think that Sunset Overdrive or MCC has the same Hype as Titanfall then I don't think those will help Win a month because what people fail to realize is exclusive games aren't the only thing selling PS4's but multiplatform helps the PS4 allot just look at watch dogs the same will also happen with Destiny but I do think that Halo 5 could stop Sony's winning streak but it all depends what games Sony releases around the time of Halo 5's release.

miyamoto737d ago

The PlaySaviour 4 is revolutionizing the video game industry!!!!

UltraNova737d ago

@GTgamer

UC4 will give Halo 5 a run for its money, you can bet your arse on that! This is the gen where proverbial Kings will fall, just look at Titan-fall (yes its rhymes).

Muzikguy737d ago

@Skips

Forgot about DX12.

I just hope with this lead Sony doesn't get too arrogant. We still need stuff like DLNA and mp3 support. I'm hoping for an awesome gen and a comeback for good games we've been missing. RPGs too! I hope this leads to more of that

ChristianTheAtheist736d ago

@Skips: wait for secret sauce and the power of the clouds.

DarXyde736d ago

What is "not good"? Nintendo competing with Microsoft?

I hope Nintendo does well. They have a stellar quality record for exclusives that, while outshined graphically, are known to be great fun.

This is embarrassing for Microsoft. Like I said many times, the Xbox One is competing with the Wii U, not the PS4. This should be a serious reality check for some people on here.

ThinkThink737d ago

Why is this embarrassing for Microsoft? It's still selling great.

gaffyh737d ago

Because they announced the price drop 3 weeks early, and couldn't outsell their competitor with the pent up demand from the previous month. Xbox is in trouble, but I think the Master Chief collection will sell some consoles.

MightyNoX737d ago

Not even doubling their sales on a 5 week month could beat the PS4.

Sony's got July, August, September and October in the bag.

I'll keep my educated guess about November for now.

Spid3r6737d ago

You are going to eat those words the gap is closing my friend the gap is closing.

jebabcock737d ago

Technically the gap is still widening... X1 has to actually outsell the ps4 before any gap can close...

XStation737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

Even with Sunset Overdrive coming out in October? Also all the multiplatform games coming out October that the XB1 has exclusive content for?
The PS4 might win, but I wouldn't say they got it "in a bag."

Evolve
Sunset Overdrive
Assassin’s Creed Unity

MightyNoX737d ago

@Xstation: Sunset Overdrive is from Insomniac, they never light up the chart and their last game bombed. Assassin's Creed is STILL on the PS4 and Ubisoft EXPLICITLY said their games chart better on the PS4.

November is going to be tricky, what with the Halo 1-4 dropping.

XStation737d ago

" Sunset Overdrive is from Insomniac, they never light up the chart and their last game bombed."

They may not light up the chart, but it's still a +1 for the Xbox One, since it's a exclusive coming out that month only for that console. Also, i don't think the PS4 has a exclusive game coming out that month, correct me if I'm wrong. In addition, Insomniac may have a bad last game, but does that mean they will continue? This game is way different than the last and it's different types of things that can go wrong. Also, they may advertise Evolve as an Xbox One game like the PS4 does with Destiny. November is going to be a interesting month for sure though.

Mr Pumblechook737d ago

MightyNoX said "Sony's got July, August, September and October in the bag. I'll keep my educated guess about November for now."

@MightyNoX Please don't keep your educated guess about what you think will be the best selling console in November a secret. Tell us!

jmac53737d ago

I wouldn't count out Little Big Planet 3 to move consoles before Christmas. A family friendly game like that will entice parents during the biggest time when they purchase consoles.

MysticStrummer737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

"i don't think the PS4 has a exclusive game coming out that month, correct me if I'm wrong."

Driveclub.

Not sure about any others that month, but LBP3 will move a few systems during the holidays. All those LBP1 and 2 user levels will be playable with updated graphics. That's a lot of content, and a lot of people are really into creating levels so fans of that will want to get going with the new stuff.

I also think Planetside 2 can move some PS4s if it gets the right commercials. I don't know how long the average console FPS fan will stick with that game, but the big battles do look cool and seeing "Free Download" at the end won't hurt.

Hardcore_gamerxbox737d ago

Seriously people like you'll the time jumping around trying to make ps4 look good and Xbox one look bad I'm happy Sony doing good this generation but I've got a question for you do u get a penny from Sony by Sony selling lots of ps4 no u don't . People like you ruining gaming industry why don't you enjoy a console u own instead of bashing Xbox one all the time

avengers1978736d ago

@spid3r6 technically the gap widened by about 75,000 units in America according to NPD numbers, and widened by around 200,000 world wide... See as long as PS4 out sells XB1 the gap gets bigger.
For example let's say PS4 is at 3 million in America, and XB1 is at 2 million, and July numbers are 100,000 for PS4 and 90,000 for XB1, the gap has grown from 1 million to 1milllion 10,000 units, it didn't not shrink.

You see if XB1 continues to sell less than PS4 than it can never close the gap.

extermin8or736d ago

See ubisoft are on record saying their games chart better on playstation as are ea yet theyve both alllwed a fair bit of timed exclusive content this year on xb1... thats not the stuff people usually buy consoles over only reason destinynwill sell ps4s is the bundle with white ps4 and advertising..

Look guys i called it. He reported my story because the source was from Neogaf but then his uses neogaf in his article and it apparently has more legitimacy.

jackanderson1985737d ago

You can't use forums on N4G, never could... abrieal writes it up on the site he's with and that's acceptable... it's why yours got failed and his passed

BitbyDeath737d ago

Bit of a stupid rule but that is how it is.

On-topic: Congrats Sony!

Kayant737d ago

The issue is the link was pointing to a single neogaf thread post not to geoff keighley's tweet. If it linked to the tweet then it will be fine as the rules have changed to allow journalist accounts iirc.

Magicite737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

Sony dominates both hardware and software sales (PS4+PS3). Most likely it will continue like this from now on.
Its time for Playstation to reclaim USA and no X-force will stop that.

P.S. Waiting for juicy comments from X1 fans (if they dare to show up here :D)

funkybudda737d ago

Amen to that.

Looks like PS4 could help Sony get back to the golden age of PS2 days, that's the way it should be.

kenshiro100737d ago

My God, the PS4 is murdering the XB1. Those price cuts and bundles aren't working.

@skips if watch dog selling better on 360 it's not bad thing people still enjoy playing game on Xbox 360 and soon most of them gonna buy Xbox one

Just no stopping it! Good times! Poor Xbone. They need to drop the price to 299$ and maybe Ill bite.

You cant have weaker hardware the same price as stronger hardware. The proof is now here.

04STIBluByU737d ago

Yeah b!tches we won! We f'ed yall up big! Just wait till June you'll see...We came and we conquered! Kings of the Hill!!! See how it feels XB guys, its plain stupid! This is what XB fans did all last gen! Fist Bump Bro!

Glad to see that we all grew as a community. Two wrongs definitely make a right. High roads be damned.

But three left do make a right! You want me to feel sorry for people who back MS's anti-gaming shenanigans? This is Punishment!

ThinkThink737d ago

@04STIBluByU I don't want you to feel sorry for anybody. I just want our community to be looked at as less of a joke.

SmielmaN737d ago

N4g doesn't make a billion dollar industry that's getting more and more high profile games, and even Hollywood actors/actresses, look like a joke. Vids that have brats being knobs at Gaming competitions make it look like a joke.

But it's definitely true. I've been reading this site since the 360 started up and it was a Sony troll/bash fest for years. It's just Sony's fans turn to enjoy positive news about their console for gaming.

gusgusjr737d ago (Edited 737d ago )

Before Sony fans keep celebrating do it what 36 months straight then talk, that being said I love both my one and ps4. I think they will but at the same time I know how deep microsoft's pockets can get.

BTW I love all gaming and gaming systems.

Spotie737d ago

Sony already did that with the PS2. Xbox is late to the party.
