@enamiiz What's the point of posting such pointless nonsense?

Anyway, everyone knows PS4 won 2014, but only the intelligent don't really give a monkeys.

The problem with asking questions like "which console is the best" is that most people who buy these consoles only have one or the other. There is no right or wrong answer to such an ambiguous question. It completely depends on the type of gaming experience you're looking for.

Which has the best hardware?
Which has the most games?
Which has the games that you want to play?
Which console is best suited for your tastes?

Maybe I should write gaming articles. I probably could get alot of clicks. Hahahaha.

Lol, lots of disagrees but no actual responses, what a surprise.

By the numbers the PS4 was easily the most enjoyed console by gamers. It sold the most hardware and software by a fairly massive margin. Both sold more than the Wii U and Xbox One combined. The Wii U and Xbox One had some highly rated games, but no one really bought them. MK7 had a great attach rate though.

I got a PS4 in september, but i feel a little disappointed. Infamous SS was pretty good, but i beat that in a matter of weeks and it doesn't have much replayability. I put about 20 hours into Destiny and wasn't too impressed before i sold it to get Evil Within, which was okay. Then Drive Club and Unity came out in half-baked states and i decided to hold off on those until they were patched.

The big title that i felt would justify my PS4 purchase was LBP 3, and it could've been better, but its easily one of the best games i played all year and the best game i played on ps4. The sad thing is, it has not sold well :/

Sony consoles historically have meh first years, and kickass second ones, so i look forward to 2015. Overrall, I'd say my Wii U was my most enjoyed console. Obviously Wii U owners dont have the most broad tastes, but as someone who bought every exclusive this year for the system it's been one of the most thoroughly enjoyable years for any one console that i can remember.

Oh and your right about the attach ratio on MK8. Its crazy how one of the best selling games on the 8th gen this year was on the slowest selling system. I think the only games that beat it were COD and GTA on PS4 which has twice the install base.

First of all, it is MK8 as in Mario Kart 8 and not 7..I am looking at my Wii U MK box and I should know. LOL

And when you said no one really buys exclusives from MS and Nintendo, please do some research..Halo MCC, Sunset Overdrive, all debuted #1 on the individual official UK weekly sales chart, which is something that the larger install base PS4 recent exclusives like driveclub and LBP3 never been able to do and Forza Horizon 2 has been on the same chart every weeks since its debute in September. Mario Kart and Smash bros also did great with the attach rate considered the size of the install base.

On Nov NPD US sales, Halo MCC managed to be the only single platform game to be on the top 10 chart with over 660k sold while LBP3 on PS4 sold only 99k. So your claim that no one buys exclusives on consoles that you clearly have an agenda against is nothing more than a false claim and my data just debunked it.

Also, I just noticed that you are the one that submitted this article so you clearly have an agenda made up already by replying to your own sunmission as soon as it was approved to spread the propaganda.

You actually didn't debunk anything simply because you forgot that most people who bought an Xbox One during the month of November probably chose MCC, Forza Horizon 2, or Sunset Overdrive as one of their "free games." NPD doesn't differentiate between games given away for free and games that are actually sold, so it's more than likely that the sales figures for Xbox One games, including MCC, have been inflated by Microsoft's "free games" promotion.

No_Limit1089d ago (Edited 1089d ago )

LOL, defending your partner in crime I see.

If that is the case then people must not be buying the Ps4 bundle then because LBP3 was free with the PS4 bundle from a few places as well like Toys R Us http://ps4daily.com/2014/11... and you made it seems like MS and stores in the US were the only giving XB1 promotions when stores also were also giving away free games for PS4 as well like Target http://ps4daily.com/2014/11... and Walmart http://ps4daily.com/2014/11... were also giving 2 free games of their choice with the purchase of the PS4...not surprising, you totally ignored that fact and pretends store giving game promotion is only exclusive to MS. So clearly new PS4 owners didn't choose LBP3 or Driveclub as their free game because 99k NPD data for LBP3 clearly indicates that if you try to play the "but..but..XB1 has free games to inflat their exclusive numbers" card. You are welcome..and next time please do some research before replying. Smh

The Xbox One is clearly bests it's competition in fun per second. The Xbox One is the leading console in the United States and the United Kingdom. The Xbox One will continue to offer hit after hit going into 2015 starting with much anticipated Halo 5.

DarkAstronaut1089d ago

The Xbox One is behind the PS4 in the US, UK and every other gaming market in the world. Except China, but that's because the PS4 hasn't launched yet. Maybe Brazil too, the last I heard the price of the PS4 there was your soul. The PS4 could be leading there too though. So stick to China, for now.

DarkOcelet1089d ago

Fun per second ahahaha . Whatever you are smoking, i want one.

guitarded771089d ago

No you don't. You really, REALLY don't.

Concertoine1089d ago

You're just mad the xbox one has 6 funs per second.

Grell5661089d ago

Xbox One and WII U are my best of 2014. They gave me the best games. Ps4 had a remake, driveclub and a that neon game.

SaveFerris1089d ago

The best console(s) are the ones you own and enjoy.
