PS4 has tons of momentum right now, and Smash is sure to give Wii U a boost, but Xbox One will be the big winner this holiday season.
In your dream, maybe :)
Lol. It will be a good Xmas for xbox. And it is true that Sony doesn't have anything crazy in comparison. But, what it does offer is better experiences on almost every multiplat title. Then, in Q1, comes the Order, Bloodborne, etc. I hope MS does well to keep pushing Sony. Though one thing he omits here, which will be HUGE is the Playstation Experience Press Conference in December. Many are saying it will be bigger than E3. We will see, but the announcement of just 1 game and gameplay from upcoming games may be enough to counter Master Chief.
"better experiences on almost every multiplat title" you do realize that most people dont even notice those small graphical differences when playing right? true the early games were a little wonky but now that the devs have had time with the new hardware these minor differences don't matter.
@ lot of people don't care about exclusives either or games for that matter just buy it because it's in or friends have it. On that note lbp3 will probably take the crown in my heart, I don't even think anything next year can beat it unless uncharted makes some big innovations, blood borne is funner then I expected or no mans sky or the wild release
@quicktme You do realize that most people want the best for their money regardless of how much a difference there is. Xbox one save ddr3 general purpose ram vs the super fast graphics memory Gddr5 is big enough difference in most people's mind when looking at the prices to go with the ps4 as sales numbers have proven already.
2 yrs ago the wii u was under the tree. last year the ps4. this year will be xbox.
All my parents gave me was a corpse to stab... Hehehe but that's all I wanted😳
I dont know if it will outsell its comp, but it will out perform any console. Lets be honest at this point its all about xone and wii u. Ps4 is done untill 2015, and thats just talk at this point. Remember all the blah blah? Now look at their fan base, peeking over the fence at the other guys. Talk is cheap. Just think about it..... we are waiting on bloodborn and the order. Just like we waited on drive club. Bb and the order are fillers. We want uc4, 365 days away. We want more games from you with uc quality. You can tell sony is in a mess, its the only time they stfu. Let me guess, another exclusive announcement is comeing. So my present from sony this christmas is a raincheck for next christmas. I wont hold my breath. Sure ps4 is selling better, but unless you are a shareholder, that means squat. The best games on ps4 are on xone and then some. @mikeslemonade WII U Mario 3d world, Mario kart, bayonetta 1&2, high rule warriors, SMASH BROTHERS,Toad Treasure something, sonic boom, donkey kong country. Xone Titanfall, dead rising 3, forza 5, ryse, fh2, sunset overdrive,halo mcc, ori, ki season 2 PS4 knack, killzone, infamous, drive club. Wowzers! Lets throw tlou in there too. I forgot about it just like everyone else.
Why is it people always insist that sales mean nothing unless you're a shareholder? Sales = support. Do people just selectively forget that? Better multiplats, more time on ports, better optimization, all of that is what comes from higher sales... And then some
Damn georgenoob is that you? Or is it truefan1? In any case, we need delusional people like you on N4G, thanks for the laugh.
Such anger. Xbone is on its 2nd price drop. Titanfall didn't help, Sunset Overdrive won't help. The PS4 has this gen on lock.
Killzone is the BOSS! Just in case you didnt know! MP is amazing! As always with gg!
First of all, let's make your exclusive list accurate. PS4: The Last of Us Remastered, inFAMOUS SS, LittleBigPlanet 3, Transistor, Resogun, Killzone SF, Driveclub, Knack. XBO: Titanfall, dead rising 3, forza 5, ryse, fh2, sunset overdrive,halo mcc, ori, ki season 2 You made a lot of fair points in ur post, but u let your anger get the best of u at the end and your agenda showed. You listed every one of XBOs games, including Ori, but you intentionally left out some of ps4's. First of all, LittleBigPlanet 3. Obviously ridiculous to leave out a major AAA release. This is my most anticipated release of the year alongside inFAMOUS SS. Then you also omitted Transistor and Resogun. These are two of ps4's best games. Transistor is one of the best games I've played in a long time, and for me tops any exclusive on either XBO or ps4. Resogun is also fantastic. Ontop of all that, you talk about TLoU Remastered like it doesn't deserve a mention, yet it has ALREADY outsold every one of XBO's exclusives other than Titanfall. And it's close to achieving that as well, despite releasing 4 months later. So it's 9 major exclusives on XBO compared to 8 on ps4. I think XBO has done a great job this year with exclusives, and they deserve props. I still would choose ps4, hands down, though. The Last of Us, Transistor, LittleBigPlanet 3, inFAMOUS SS, and Resogun make ps4 more than worth it. The only games on XBO that interest me are Ori and SO. Ori does look fantastic, though. I'm jealous over that one.
You also forgot FF14 and MLB the show 14
MLB the Show and FF14
Xbone hasn't outperformed Ps4 all year (despite ps4 having "no gud gaems")...why would it start now? We keep seeing articles about how Xbone and Wii U are primed to overtake the Ps4, and never with any solid indications.
LOL if this was VGCHARTZ, you would have been banned in seconds.
Right, M$ will loose this Holidays, this Christams, this year, year 2015 and all days after. xbone will not see year 2017.
In US and UK, maybe...but no chance in the rest of the world.
Nope. That's all just speculation. When you look at the trend the PS4 is outselling either console by more than 2:1 on a weekly basis. A price drop and bundles won't carry them over gap. Especially when PS4 will have bundles too. Worldwide sales as of last week: PS4: 287k X1: 127k WiiU: 45k
Amazon's top selling bundles atm http://www.amazon.com/best-...
this past hour... Overall: http://www.amazon.com/gp/be...
@visuallift - let me help you atm = at the moment
People are more excited for halo than CoD and we're still a week away xD
Even better - For the month - http://www.amazon.com/gp/be... This week - http://www.amazon.com/gp/be... Last week - http://www.amazon.com/gp/be...
What will PS4 bundle with?? Little Big Planet?
Um far cry 4? Grand theft auto? Little big planet 3?
I am gonna get that bundle personally
So this speculation is largely supported in faith that the Call of Duty Xbox One bundle will tip the scale? Buh buh I thought everyone Hated COD???
here are the bundles but will be on sale soon. http://static1.gamespot.com... http://www.therem.org/wp-co... http://www.play3-live.com/n...
And I think people really underestimate that GTA PS4 bundle that will be released soon. I have no data to base this on, but I believe uneducated parents that are stupid stupid to do their research have a good chance of picking up said bundle. Which is fortunate for their kids, because I believe it's the better console.
They aint stealing jack shit
US maybe, World Wide nope.
This EU is completely dominated by PlayStation and there's nothing Nintendo nor MS can really do to change that. Their only chance of winning is NA for MS, and JP for Nintendo. NA is the biggest market, but a win there still won't be enough to make up for the gap in EU and JP numbers for MS. JP console market is too small to make a huge difference for the Wii U in comparison to the PS4 on the WW scale, and although Smash will do huge numbers for them, not even MK8 could stop the PS4 and with a Far Cry 4 and GTAV bundle for the holidays the PS4 shouldn't have too much trouble holding off both console once again.
Not even US...
I think the xbone will win november in the US with halo, but if it doesn't than ms really will be in panic mode. Although I'm not looking forward to all the 'MS has turned it around' articles we'll be getting, based on one region on one month of the year.
With what, Halo ports? Even Wii U has a better lineup.
Matter of fact Wiiu has a better lineup than PS4 too LOL
this site's tagline is "forget reality"
i think with the halo collection X1 sales will be better than PS4 this fall , yet it can't reach 13m in few months , MS need to but a lot of efforts to reach that number
Seriously doubt that. As popular as Halo is, this is still simply a collection of old games, but it is an amazing value. 3 of the 4 games were available on 360, so for most this is all about Halo 2, and 1080p @ 60fps for the other games. It will definitely carry MS through the holiday, and it could help them win an NPD finally especially with the $50 price drop (and potentially huge Black Friday bundles), but I doubt it's going to give them a world wide win. EU is just to dominated by PlayStation and the EU market is almost as big as the NA market nowadays, and until some serious head room is made there then it's not going to happen.
Yes and sony needs to stop selling the ps4 for a year. http://i.imgur.com/J9AhvDZ....
Honestly if they dont win at least December ill be shocked as all hell. But i will say this sony know exactly what they are doing November : lb3,multiplats (low hype build) December : guilty gear xrd, playstation event (high hype riding the holidays ) January :multiplats now this is where it gets intresting February : bloodbourne, the order 1886, god eater 2, dragon quest heros,dragonball z xenoverse, (japan hype overload).
its that variety and playstation brands good track record
What's with the gaming media constantly rooting for Xbox? Don't remember articles like these when PS3 was loosing NPD sales.
Don't take it so personal
It's referred to as "Cognitive Bias" and it just goes to show you how much the PS4 is dominating the market.
There's no bias. You must be imagining things. It's not like you can Google old articles and prove what you say. /s
I think it has the fact that most articles posted on here are from American websites, N4G also has a large american following. As we well know, some americans are extremely patriotic about homegrown companies and will only buy american and also defend them to the hilt.
I have seen very few cases where this is done out of some idea of "patriotism" (actually Nationalism). It's mostly fanboys being fanboys and clinging to that to try to shame people into buying their Console of Choice.
You mean the same media that said always online DRM Xbox One was not so bad before MS 180'd everything?
they will win november and december NPD but not worldwide thanks to free game and 50$ price drop
maybe, just maybe... The PS4 still has 2 more exclusives this holiday, plus most gamers will still buy the system for big multiplats like cod, far cry 4, and GTA5.
^^ this, also, didnt help when they had Titanfall free.......
PS4 is taking this holiday.
Why is it so many "xbox gonna win" articles? Do people really care? It won't make my system any less fun. The only games that are selling good this holiday is multiplats!
as you can see by the amount of people saying "no way. NEVER!" people care quite a lot... too much
X1 may sell more than PS4 these 2 monts, but by how much 10, 20k units, lol some win.
and only in the US so who cares even if they did lol world wide is the only thing that matters when all is said and done because thats all the sales combined and PS4 will continue to dominate the xbone.
You do know that 'The Grinch' stores all the unwanted Christmas presents? I.e. Xbox... just kidding. I've said it before - Halo isn't as relevant as it used to be. Sure, it will sell well and shift some consoles, but every Halo fan I know already has the Xbox one or changed to PlayStation... I may get disagreed with but that's the way it is (within the vicinity of people I know). Halo 4 sold a decent amount, but people moved on real quick... Hold on...it's Saturday and I'm having some beers. Whatever lol Go Xbox!
I'll be owning both this holiday, so I steal christmas, mwahahaha!
Stealth edit to my gf posting something about me sucking something while I was afk....grrr lol
Sony will continue to outsell Microsoft just because they are Sony, I prefer it that way though as it means Microsoft will push harder and harder and they have the resources to do it.
That thumbnail creeped the shit out of me.
Has everyone forgot that most 360 gamers not jump,to X11 yet??? Waiting on mom n dad to buy for Christmas, waiting on Xmas money, where 75% of PS3 gamers done moved to ps4!!!!
....75%?? Um you do knkw there are over 80 million ps3s out there right? -_- And also what your implying is that all xbox owners are children then?? Mm kay
According to Sony, about 1/3 of all PS4 owners never owned a PS3...kinda makes you wonder what those people had before they got a PS4 doesn't it since only 17% of those didn't own any console last gen. that's approximately 2.7 million people switching to the PS4.
