PS4 domination!
KNWS  +   286d ago
domination in the United States is estimated at 500,000 more for PS4. Its nothing. PS4 is winning, but its not like they have a 4 to 5 million lead.

See if the Halo collection changes anything?

35 million 360's sold in the United States alone. So if you guys want to claim domination already that's fine. I'll wait little bit longer before declaring Sony the winner of this gen.

Fact is though that the USA was thought to be mainly loyal to Xbox. We already know the PS4 is going to destroy the XBone everywhere else. Even if PS4 and XBone were neck and neck would already show a victory for PS4, but the fact that PS4 is outselling, and by a pretty good margin too even after the new XBone SKU, shows domination. To top all that off, PS4 is just getting started. The phase it's in now is actually it's slow phase, as is with every Sony console. Once it has that PS2/ PS3 level library of exclusives and definitive third party titles, there will be no stopping it.
stuna1  +   286d ago
If you believe 500,000 is nothing then there no need for Microsoft to do anything concerning the Xbox1 in the U.S? I think you should hurry and send them a letter of reprimand before they change anything else!/s

Lol halo Vs destiny....destiny why play halo collection when the b guys who made halo are making something better. That's why Xbox is in trouble too many people not looking at the future and that market is niche
KNWS  +   286d ago
Sony has had the momentum since launch. Microsoft had a terrible 2013 with bad PR. Its playing the catch up game ever since.

And frankly the way Microsoft messed up i expected Sony to have a far bigger lead. Sony last talk about sales was 7 million. Microsoft was 5 million. That's not bad for a console that looked prior to launch to be in serious trouble.

The margins are so low in the United States. Figures ahead 470,000 to 500,000 thats really low when you consider the bigger first party x box exclusives are not out yet. And we really don't known what kind of impact they'll have. But those titles were huge last gen.

Just to add@ Truefan i know lot of people who're pre ordering just to get into the beta. And then the plan on cancelling their pre-order. Same is probably true for PS4 users. I wouldn't go on that Amazon link alone.

Not quite... PS4 had SOLD THROUGH 7 million to consumers... XB1 had SHIPPED 5 million to retailers... BIG difference.
Eonjay  +   286d ago
Its actually much loser to 700k according to NPD. The 476k advantage is from this year alone.
Sharky231  +   286d ago
At least 20 million of those 360 were replacements. I know at least 4 people who didn't want to wait for Microsoft to fix there system so they bought another. A few were multiple consoles. Multiply that by whatever and that's why the 360 sold as much as they did. I'm not saying that the 360 wasn't a great console. I owned one too. I just think that added to there total.
Bathyj  +   286d ago
I'm not disagreeing with what you said, its early days and momentum can shift. But all I heard last gen was Marketshare, and how much was lost.

It wasnt enough that PS3 sold quicker than X360 from the moment it came out till present day, it was all about "but PS2 dominated, PS3 shouldnt be doing the same?"

So what changed? Sony took the only stronghold MS had but now its ok cos theyre not leading by too much. Shouldnt just the fact theyre neck and neck be cause for concern to MS?

You need to put some wheels on the bottom of those goal posts, save your back a bit.
Cindy-rella  +   286d ago
i can't wait for my ps4 and the last of us. I'm very excited to play that game and to experience what the ps4 is like. I've been mostly a pc and xbox 360 gamer last gen.
pyramidshead  +   286d ago
The 360 and the xbone are completely different, contextually. Why do you continually make yourself look like an idiot?

35mil consoles sold means nothing when they had a year head start and could pad out sales via RROD.

'Wait for Titanfall'

'Wait for E3'

'Wait for Halo'

I'm just pointing out something I find funny coming from certain users. But I guess I should shut up since I'm trying to get one when the collection comes out lmao.

InTheLab  +   286d ago
I bought 2 360's and I barely like Xbox. It was either that or lose a ton of dlc and my GS thanks to the rrod. Surely those that only game on 360 were forced to buy more to the tune of 3 or 4.

I know you don't think all of those where unique, especially when no one you know has anything less than 2 Xbox's...

Sony has sold 9 million PlayStation 4 consoles while Microsoft’s Xbox One is at 5 million consoles sold worldwide, according to a recent Edge magazine interview with Microsoft Corporate Vice President Phil Harrison.


So actually the PS4 does have a 4 million unit lead and the gap is widening week after week.

Lol @knws. Not sure if youre quite getting it but the gap is actually widening. You may try and deflect or question the speed at which it is widening but the fact remains the same. Every single 'game changer' has failed thus far. Onto the next one I guess aey
MSBAUSTX  +   286d ago
@brutallyhonest: PS4 is definitely outselling but the people who say the XB1 is doomed when it has sold 5 mil its first year with no hard hitting exclusives but Titanfall are absolutely delusional! The first year isnt quite over and it has sold 5 mil! Those are great numbers! yes 9 mil is better and no one can argue with that. But people please dont discredit a console that is selling really well just because another is selling better. We are all playing great games this gen and whether it is XB or PS we are playing games. To each his own and 5 million sold is great for year one and 9 mil sold is great for year one. At one point in time the movie Titanic was the highest grossing movie ever. It has been smashed so many times since. But that doesnt mean it is a crap movie now because someone outsold it. So, Lets all just be happy that the big three are making consoles that we all individually love and move one because right they are all doing great. Keep it up big three!
RichardDawkins  +   286d ago
Smh. The fact that the Ps4 has a continuous lead in the North America is a surprise. Yes, we know 360 killed it in NA, but this is a different generation with different consoles. Stop living in the past.
XStation  +   286d ago

"it has that PS2/ PS3 level library of exclusives and definitive third party titles, there will be no stopping it."

PS4 is going to sell because of multi-plats this gen. Don't believe me? It's selling a lot RIGHT NOW because of that reason, because it has less exclusive AAA games out right now than the Xb1. Yoshida already said they're putting more time into indies than AAA games. And you ppl act like the Xbox has no exclusives coming for it. This is a whole new generation; the Xbox One lacks the amount of power the PS4 have, which means they must focus on the exclusive games more. New head of Xbox and he says "games,games,games." Microsoft is already putting up a lot of money towards more 1st party studios and I'm pretty sure there's AAA games being made from their studios right now as i type that we don't know of right now. The PS2 era is over, so let it's legacy stay how it was. You can't recreate that era of gaming again due to how much the industry has changed. Now let me prepare for the crap ton of dislikes since it's not something all about lollipops, rainbows, and unicorns about the PS4. OH NO! I see the Sony drones in the sky! Don't come for me!!! Need, Help, Need, A, Xbot, Xbot SAVE ME!

Its doesn't matter worldwide the PS4 is selling nearly half a million more each month.. That equals to 6 million a year right now..

aceitman  +   286d ago
@ buck ur comparing a 199$ shandheld system to a 399$ home console. well if u look at it ,for the price the ps4 is holding its own against the 3ds .and it has outsold the 3ds worldwide numerous times.and expect that to happen starting last week of july through the end of the year with all the games coming out starting with TLOU.
InTheLab  +   286d ago
You forgot to mention the 2ds is $120 and was under $100 last holiday. Got two for my kids...so yeah.

1 console for the house does not equal 2 or 3 handhelds for every kid you have....

Lol at fake Xbox One numbers. VGChartz really believes Xbox One is saved. These numbers don't even make sense.

Edit: Numbers look way off because this is USA weekly not global weekly like the title states.

VGCs had them neck and neck last month, and look at how that turned out (PS4 was ahead in the US by 75k and that's WITH an Xbone price-cut). I don't know why this bs site still gets posted at all. You find more credible speculation on Gamefaqs.
morganfell  +   286d ago

The X1 is doing worse right now at Amazon, Gamestop, and Best Buy than at any point since launch yet vgchartz keeps pumping out these lies. N4G doesn't have the respect for it's own visitors to stop allowing this tripe to be posted. I wonder what integrity sells for these days.
Why o why  +   286d ago
@ morganfell

Apparently there's some kind of advertising synergy going on between n4g and vgc. HH gamer got banned for plagiarism I've been told yet this guestmaing site can lie yoy and stay posting. They retcon and have consistently undertracked one manufacturer whilst overtracking another. Ive relegated them to propaganda.

75k difference is not bad, you expect them to sell the same amount. One is going to sell better. Geez chill out fanboy
Funantic1  +   286d ago
I believe VGChartz over anything you use. All those sales counting companies are inaccurate in some way. There's no way to be 100% accurate. It's just that y'all expect the X1 to be way far behind and it's not. It's gaining momentum just like I saw the PS3 do years ago. Let's see how Xmas looks since both systems are the same price but one will have more exclusives....X1.
stuna1  +   286d ago
In order for the Xbox1 to stop the gap from widening is for it to outsell the PS4! Not sell the same amount or, 1 console less. All those examples ensure is that the pace the gap is widening is slower.
CernaML  +   286d ago

Ps4 is selling amazing still. I just hope it doesn't end up with tons of shovelware like the other best selling systems.
poor_cus_of_games  +   286d ago
Only the wii ended up with shovelware. The ps2 and ps3 didn't. Since they are the 3 best seller's worldwide.
BrandanT  +   286d ago
The Ps2 had huge amount shovelware but, it also had the most games worth playing. The Wii, had more shovelware than games worth playing (A Nintendo fanboy like myself hated the Wii for that), most non-Nintendo games on the Wii are crap. It did have good things for their actual fans though.

If you think about it, all the best selling systems have huge amounts of shovelware behind the games it is known for. Behind all the good ps2 games (too many to mention) there is, well the only shovelware I know is the Petz series crappy movie games.
Macdaddy71  +   286d ago
Will be so nice to see all the 360 owners move to next gen, what a new story we will have...the 360 sold twice as ps3, in the long run X1 will be ok!!! I have both ps4 n X1... But I do think the X1 will take over..Sony see these numbers, they know why they are in number one for now...
CaptainObvious878  +   286d ago
How do you figure?

The PS4 has only been widening the gap and all signs point to this continuing. And Destiny comes out soon and that looks to be incredibly popular on the PS4 going by amazon's charts.

How is the xbone going to start magically selling more and continuing to do so?
horndog  +   286d ago
Because they can. It's ms the company with big pockets who are here to give us the "AAA" that we so rightfully deserve. People are going to get sick of indies man. Ps4 has some good hardware good price but they know they can't afford to give you the big exclusive blockbusters that MS can. They are relying on indies and third party games looking better on ps4. Eventually 3rd party games will be on par just like we are seeing now and all ps4 is left to offer are indies and last gen "remasters". Lol. This gen is just starting it's got a long way to go.

Destiny is amazing on PS4 and with the higher resolution (not as important) and exclusive content (more important) it really is the best place to play destiny.

Man third-party companies are getting RICH off the PS4 and Xbox One....too bad Sony and MS aren't. There is no first party software from either company selling. Meanwhile MK8 is killing it. Super Mario 3D World is still in the top 31 as well.
Spotie  +   286d ago
Meanwhile there are no third parties doing anything on Wii U. And Sony and MS do get paid off third party software sales. What else on the Wii U is even on the list at all?

Yeah, forgot about that, huh?
Theyellowflash30  +   285d ago
There are plenty of third-party indie developers on Wii U. Shovel Knight as been selling well.

MS and Sony barely make anything off those 3rd party sales. MS's gaming division doesn't make any money. And Sony is forecasting a lost for FY2014

I didn't forget about that at all.
Darkfist  +   285d ago
thats why PS4 kelling the wii u in sales, while theres nothing to play on wiiu except mario for you fanboys who already have the system.
Theyellowflash30  +   285d ago
And the 3DS is killing the PS4 because the PS4 is selling off promises and hype, while the 3DS has a stable of great games.

I play Shovel Knight, Zelda, The Wonderful 101, ZombiU, Pikmin 3, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Child of Light, and plenty of games outside of Mario on the Wii U.

Try harder troll.
Darkfist  +   285d ago
lol 3DS?, you mean the one which has alot of third-party yet saying wiiu dont need it, also The Wonderful 101, ZombiU, Pikmin 3, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Child of Light, didnt sell well unless its mario, pokemon remake, dynasty warriors zelda edition
Theyellowflash30  +   285d ago
The 3DS is selling well because of first party games, with a few third party games from Japanese developers. Damn near no Western developers are working on it.

"theres nothing to play on wiiu except mario"

Then you go on to mention Zelda and Pokemon. Nice way to destroy your own point XD

And we weren't talking about sales, we were talking about games to play. on top of that MANY games don't sell as well as Mario, so that is irrelevent. And you don't know how much those games have sold.

Once again, try harder troll
