Impressive

Looks like price makes a difference.

PS4 had a 25% price advantage for 7 months, now x1 had a price advantage in November.

Well over 5.1m X1 sales just in the US, even with that higher price for 7 months, now less than 15% separates the top consoles in an apples to apples comparison, well done.

5 of the top 10 games are xbox as well, good job with the smaller install base.

Edit
@ ABizzel1, that's my point, as you put it, "the ball has been in Sony's court with a 25% lower price for 7 months", impressive that we're now looking at a difference of less than 15%.

XBO was never doing bad in US, though especially after the SKU without Kinect. US was always going to be neck and neck between XBO and PS4, and when PS4 has it's first price drop things will be back in their court, and when XBO has another price cut it's going to be on top again. It's going to be a back and forth all generation in the US.

US 2020

XBO: 40 - 45m
PS4: 40 - 45m
Wii U: 15m - 20m

Concertoine1023d ago

I doubt wii u will sell an average of 2 million a year in the US alone. Even with smash and mario kart 8 in the same year i don't think they hit 2 million in the US. You seem really generous with that prediction.

SardoNumspa1023d ago (Edited 1023d ago )

"US 2020

XBO: 40 - 45m
PS4: 40 - 45m "

LOL

Don't know if we should laugh or cry at someone that delusional.

And LOL at fanboys cheering on the ridiculously fake vgchartz made up 'sales numbers'.

So hilariously pathetic.

@SardoNumspa

It took the Xbox 360 just over 7 years to pass the 40m mark (Nov. 2005 - Early 2013). And overall there were nearly 120m console sold in the US last-gen to this day.

2013 - 2020 equals 7 years. Even if you took the max 45 + 45 + 20 is only 110m consoles, so unless you expect a huge drop off in console sales in the US then that total makes sense.

The PS4 has already outsold the 360 in the same time frame in the US with a full month of December sales to go (aka high selling month of the year), and it's still at a max price of $400. The XBO is almost there, and will easily pass it in December where sales are usually up 2x - 6x October's sales for the entire month.

Don't know if I should laugh or cry at someone so stupid.

If the PS4 and XBO are already outselling the 360 in the same time frame then chances are they're going to sell similar if not more consoles than the 360 did in the US which would be in the 40m - 45m range.

Once again don't know if I should laugh or cry at someone so stupid.

Too things I want to point out:

1. It's not exactly a price advantage. When you are $500, you should be in theory $100 more worth than the PS4. So whether that is the kinect or the system power you are suppose to be $100 more value. Exactly like how the PS3 was suppose to justify the $600 price tag with the wifi, blu-ray, cell, and 60GB HDD.

So in other words price advantage would be negated. You never say a Toyota is had a price advantage over Mercedes. The Mercedes has the quality and luxury appeal to justify the cost. However in this case X1 failed to justify the $500 price tag and now it's $330 with two free games.

2. Abizzle, once again you are using flawwed projection to estimate future sales. Even by using your flawwed logic it would take the X1 4 months outsell the PS4 U.S. install base. However you're taking highest month of the X1 outside launch to project the sales. My prediction is PS4 will actually outsell the X1 next month in the U.S. because of the PlayStation experience and the VGAs. With Uncharted, Bloodborne, The Order, Street Fighter V etc. Microsoft was nonexistant at the VGAs

@mike

What are you talking about, the sales I have for all 3 is based off the entire year (Jan 2014 - now), and logically expecting sales to increase over the next several years as prices drop and more games and content is announced.

You want XBO to be down there with the Wii U, but it's just not going to happen in the US. The only flawed logic is your thinking. PS4 was never completely destroying XBO in the US like it was everywhere else. When the kinect was removed sales were close, with the PS4 still taking the lead each week. It wasn't until the $50 - $70 price cut that the XBO was finally able to take the lead from the PS4.

I've went over the ENTIRE YEAR's sales to get these numbers and scaled accordingly.

I've explained this to you once before, but you want to hear and think what Mike believe's so I'll let you be, and go about my business.

As long as they both keep selling well enough to not tank, we are all in for some good gaming. I don't care who "wins", I think at this point it's safe to say that neither console maker has "lost", they are making money.

@Concertoine

I know, but I think with more games and price cuts Wii U will pick up a bit with the core gamer at least. Frankly when you look at the price of all 3 console the Wii U offers no real advantage over the XBO and PS4 price wise, since you get much more powerful consoles and complete 3rd party support with them.

At this point a Mario Kart + Smash Bundle needs to be dropping early next year for $299, with Wii U dropping to $229 stand alone.

Concertoine1023d ago (Edited 1023d ago )

The question is at what point will ps4 and xbox one owners be buying a secondary console, and will it be the wii u?

The fact that they had a presence at TGA was surprising, and a step in the right direction. Its clear they've given up on the popularity contest but they'll still take a chance to sell their system.

Even with all the droughts and negativity surrounding the system, ten years from now all we'll see is the games and in that sense i think the Wii U will be viewed favorably.

ABizzel11023d ago

And that's Nintendo's only chance to strike. They need to make a clear case for the Wii U. 2015 is a great year for them and their exclusives, the final selling point is price, and they need to be as close to $199 as possible.

2015 is the proving ground for all 3 consoles IMO. Nintendo has to prove to gamers the Wii U is worth it, and they have the first party games down, they just need price, and more unique exclusive 3rd party games like Pokemon Tournament, SMT x Fire Emblem, etc... If they nail those 3 task then the Wii U will be just fine, if they miss a beat it's over for them, until it becomes like the GameCube and drops to $99 and people buy it because it's cheap rather than simply wanting to play their games.

Not saying it's a walk in the park for them, but I expect 15m to be an obtainable goal.

I've posted this before, but I'll do it again. If I had to guess final realistic numbers for all 3 I'd say.

PS4: 45m
XBO: 40m
Wii U: 15m

I put the PS4 on top simply because it's still at it's original $400 price point, and still selling well, while it took the XBO to drop Kinect to start getting close to those number and another $50 - $70 price drop to finally start outselling the PS4. But now the balls in Sony's court and when they drop price the XBO will be back in the Kinectless SKU position, so overall Sony still has control, they're just trying to milk the full price profit as long as they can.

Its rare to see 2 Nintendo games in top 5 list. Nice job, impressive numbers for Smash bros, a game released on a console with few sales out there.

llxKonanxll1023d ago

Good Numbers for the Xbox, Ps4 and WiiU. These holidays are shaping up to be lathered with great deals.

Moonman1023d ago

Go Wii U! The $249 Wii U Target deal should help soon as well.

slutface1023d ago

It was super close and not a landslide victory between ps4 n xbox.considering all MS has done practically giving it away for free .... Sony was NOT that far behind and is the most expensive on black Friday

OOMagnum1023d ago

Yea cause 160,000 plus in sales is close. If the numbers are accurate.
