"Sony may have sold more units since 2013, sure, but Microsoft is quickly closing the gap"

Isn't the gap growing?

xHeavYx937d ago

I know, right? And the article ends with the obvious quote "Ultimately both devices are quite good and getting better"

johndoe11211937d ago

Loosing is the new winning.

Cindy-rella937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

Sony has been releasing AAA exclusive games for the ps4 in 2015 while their competition hasnt been and wont in the first half of 2015. The ps4 is selling more than twice the amount of the xbox one so i dont see how the sales gap is decreasing. I think this is just an april 1st joke because the facts are clear to see. Im not sure what the definition of king is to the writer but i would think he/she would be referring to which is doing the best.

chrismichaels04937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

Both systems have their strengths and weaknesses. But in terms of which system is ahead, its still the PS4. Not only is the PS4s worldwide sales lead continuing to grow every month, but PS4 also has the 2 highest rated AAA retail exclusive games: The Last of Us Remastered (95) and Bloodborne (93), backed up by an overall pretty solid lineup of games that span across all genres like Infamous Second Son, Killzone Shadow Fall, MLB The Show, LBP3, DriveClub etc...and PS4 still has the deepest library of quality indie titles.

Relientk77937d ago

Yea if were talking bout sales PS4 easily wins that

jjonez18937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

The gap has grown every single month since launch they both launched. The gap shrinking could not be any farther from the truth.

The author may be referring to North America only, but even then, he is still wrong. The gap has been widenening since January and doesn't look to change at least until October when Halo destroys everything. Then in November/December because of CoD and Tomb Raider (Again NA only). Basically things are looking like a 2014 repeat.

badz149937d ago

that's what happens when you skip math at school and just went "F*** it, I'm gonna do gaming journalism!"

the gap is widening and if the gap is a girl doing yoga, it's pretty much almost a perfect split by now! something like this;

r1sh12937d ago

the stupidest thing about this,
both consoles are outselling their previous gen.

But
Xbox is having a great time,
PS4 is having a phenomenal time.

Why do people care so much?
MS have significantly improved the platform, game sales etc..
You cannot fault them for getting their act together and they are also expanding to the focus to PC.

As a gamer Im excited to see these things happening, a few years ago MS would never have taken feedback the way they do now.
Its been a shift in the management to be more transparent and open with new ideas and to get input from the customers.

the same can be said of Sony - they were pretty closed but they got humbled by a number of things, like the hacks etc..
MS have taken a larger step but Sony are also doing the same now too, although they started earlier.

Khajiit86937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

Hacks are something Sony did not do to you, where MS executives making decisions to try and screw gamers over is ALL on them.

937d ago
r1sh12936d ago

@khajit86.. are you nuts?
The lack of security exposed date of birth and address details which can still be found on the internet.
Basic encryption was not present so yes Sony breached the first 5 principles of the data protection act.

Not all MS executives were pushing those decisions, only a couple were.
Im sorry but for an enterprise level company, the fact that Sony did not salt or hash data shows how immature they were at the time, which is grossly misconduct.
The MS executive changes put people that actually see games for what they are, and now those decisions are affecting the MS related products for the better.

@wobblypopz
I never said sony were bending over backwards, but they have been taking more account of customer views and feedback.

angelusbrz937d ago

lol yes, garbage article...

RocketScienceLvlStuf937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

This isn't game of thrones. PS4 is king and always will be king. All xbone can do is bow down on it's knees

ScorpiusX937d ago

Or poison the King to watch him turn purple and bow to no one .

sovkhan937d ago

@castillo

When we've poisoned our ownselves already!!!

Not smart enough :)

medman937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

The winner is the ps4, natch. It's been a winner since day one.

Automatic79936d ago (Edited 936d ago )

Both systems have there strengths and weaknesses. In terms of Sales sony wins in terms of the most highly rated franchises published by first party this generation Microsoft, in terms of the most multiplayer based games Microsoft, in terms of most first party games online and retail, software updates, online and overall experiences hands down MS. For those that don't know the MS published titles

Titanfall
Halo MCC
Forza Motorsport
Forza Horizon
Sunset Overdrive
Ori and the Blind Forest

chrismichaels04936d ago (Edited 936d ago )

Im a little confused by your statement. In terms of first party published games, the winner is still PS4.

List of Sony First Party published games:
- The Last of Us (95)
- Bloodborne (92)
- Resogun (84)
- MLB14 The Show (83)
- MLB15 The Show
- The Unfinished Swan (83)
- HellDivers (81)
- Infamous Second Son (80)
- LittleBigPlanet 3 (79)

Note: Just a quick FYI...Titanfall was published by EA, not Microsoft Game Studios.

brew936d ago

You missed

- Flower (91)
- Sound Shapes (84)

Automatic79936d ago (Edited 936d ago )

@chrismichaels

Dead Rising 3
Kalimba
Minecraft
KillerInstinct
State of Decay
D4 Dark Dreams Don't Die

chrismichaels04936d ago (Edited 936d ago )

@MichaelLito -

PS4 still has:
- Hohokum
- Super StarDust Ultra
- Killzone Shadow Fall
- DriveClub
- Doki Doki Universe
- The Order 1886
- Flower
- Sound Shapes
- Escape Plan

The point still stands, PS4 has more first party published games than Xone. Go take a look at the complete list at www.listwar.com

Note: Another FYI...Minecraft may now be owned by MS, but the game is still also available on PS4.

dafegamer936d ago

Sony had higher rated first party games.
Titanfall isnt even first party

TheXgamerLive936d ago (Edited 936d ago )

The true answer to this is which ever console is your favorite. Theirs no crowned king.

Bdub2000936d ago

Damn bro, don't ever insinuate X1 is on par with PS4 on N4G. You will get crucified with disagrees and bubble loss. Even just saying there is no king is freaking treason around here.

OT: if sales are what we are basing this off of, the ps4 takes the cake. But the lineup of games on X1 for me still holds my attention the best.

I think E3 will be a deciding factor on this

Insomnia_84937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

E3 is gonna rock this year!

I think things like this are a deciding factor:

https://youtu.be/i1E3ILRS_-...

A great game on a great platform through a great portable with a great feature! Only PlayStation offers me this kind of experiences.

GREATNESS!

johndoe11211937d ago

Same thing was said about E3 last year
Same thing was said about secret phantom double GPU
Same thing was said about power of da cloudz
Same thing was said about kinect
Same thing was said about dx12
Same thing was said about HMCC
Same thing was said about controlling your tv
Same thing was said about dropping the price
And yet the gap just keeps growing.

Gamer1982937d ago

Sssh you cant say things like that they will take away your bubblez!!

StrayaKNT937d ago

Sales = ps4
Games = xbox

It will be a good year this year

jjonez18937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

Funny, especially because given the lineup of the first 10 months of 2015.
I would say-

Sales = PS4
Games = PS4

Opinions may vary. Regardless PS4 and XB1 will have great 2015 in both categories.

darkangel360937d ago

Sales=ps4
Games=xbox one

Unless youre to mention those hundreds of ps4 indie crap games that are cheap and boring if wanted to play indies i use my phone for that, if i want to play good exclusives y use my xbox!
Remember dude its better quality over quantity

sovkhan937d ago

@Darkangel

Well have the decency not to force us list the games, because unless you are unable to count, there are more games on the ps4 no matter what!!!

Listwar is here for that go have a look!!!

supraking951937d ago

Xbox lineup feels too much like 2014. Seriously Halo and Forza again? PS4 has always had a more diverse library of games since PS1, PS2 and PS3 days. PS4 lineup of 2015 continues that trend with Until Dawn, BloodBorne, The ORder, Persona 5 and more.

Rimeskeem937d ago

Games is completely subjective

StrayaKNT937d ago

Well sony has
the order (which didnt go too well)
bloodborne (which i am really enjoying at the moment)
uncharted 4 (delayed to next year)

Xbox has
Ori (amazing game)
Fable
halo 5
quantum break
tomb raider
forza 6

So theres really no competition this year with the xbox line up imo at the end of the day its all personal preference i guess. But those who own all consoles will agree with me. Those who dont, will disagree.

PCGamingNoobs937d ago

@AussieGamer1

The amount of ps4 titles you missed is terrible.

no mans sky and until dawn to name a couple of the top of my head. never mind all the indie games they are supporting.

vishmarx937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

funny you think ps4 only has 2 games this year and both are out lol.
what about
until dawn
persona 5
dragon quest heroes
disgaea 5
god eater 2
no mans sky
rime
wild
tommorow children
rapture
deep down
bloodborne
the order.
tearaway unfolded

not to mention japanese games like one piece etc that xbox isnt getting despite even pc getting it
yeah no competition at all lol
people who arent blind will disagree with you too

G20WLY937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

^Nice job of excluding the vast majority of PS4 games to fake your point, AussieGamer1! lol

Also, didn't Quantum Break get delayed to 2016, just like Uncharted 4? I'm sure both systems will get a couple of left-field surprises before the year is out...but as it stands, PS4 has the games covered.

oasdada937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

@aussiegamer1

Ps4 doesnt have only 3 games this year. if i knew any better. u dnt sound like u own 1.

and for some 1 (among many) who also own a pc/360.. almost half of xbox exclusives u listed are on pc/360 too. not to mention an (unrevealed/undated) ps4 xclusive im betting will drop at the end of this year

so yeah there IS competition this year with xbox lineup.

Blind hate is never good my friend.. one day almost every1 will get both the consoles.. so save the bitterness till then.. cheers!

badz149937d ago

Xbox gamers' year is so short, it only has 3 months in it! the other 9 months don't matter, like always!

johndoe11211937d ago

@aussiegamer

"But those who own all consoles will agree with me. Those who dont, will disagree."

So basically what you're saying is that if someone owns both systems they would automatically be blind, bias and deceptive and agree with your fake and inaccurate list? Thank God I only own one console then.

darkangel360937d ago

Why does everybody list all of those indie ps4 crappy games??? Everbody no ps4 has way better games blah blah then they list like 40 indies and 10 exclusive wich from those 10 only one is good by the way if i want to play indies and crappy games i use my ipad ok.. I PREFER QUALITY OVER QUANTITY like my bog xbox one
Forza 5 8.0
Forza horizon 2 9.0
Sunset overdrive 9.0
Ori and blind forest 9.0
Halo mcc 9.0
Titan fall 9.0
D4 9.0
And can keep going, majority of xbox lne games are good games just like ps4 (sarcasm) all ps4 exclusives have poor review scores exept bloodborne so in almost 3 years you tell me ps4 only has one good game and is the king yeah right sony is the king the king my ass

Gamer1982937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

Gotta love how xbox fans miss out a big chunk of ps4 games because they dont know they exist as they dont own a ps4 just want to throw mud then pretend to own one by saying they are enjoying games like bloodbourne to try earn respect on here and save there bubbles.
@darkangel360 you missed out
infamous 8
TLOU 9.5
Resogun 8.5

also half your list scores are wrong sunset overdrive got 8.1 from metacritic. Get your scores right
Sunset overdrive 8.1
titanfall 8.6

In fact Xbox one hasn't got a single exclusive that ranks over 9.0 on metacritic unlike ps4 which has 2 TLOU and Bloodbourne.

MRMagoo123937d ago

@Aussiegamer

The order outsold most of the xbox exclusives you know, so if you think "didnt go too well" is the order what do you think of the xbone games?

I think it also depends what happens this E3.

I also have both systems now so i can enjoy everything except Wii U :(

badboyz09937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

AsunaYuukiTheFlash937d ago

Dude there is no such thing as "AAA" indies lol.

MasterCornholio937d ago

@Asuna

Triple A indies do exist. Just look at Hellblade.

ninsigma937d ago

@Asuna
Of course there are! I can't believe people are still denying this!
Indie means no pub.
AAA means high budget.
while indies generally dont have a high budget, it's not always that way. Case in point (Rime, hell blade, and that open world one that i keep forgetting the name of).
The two are not mutually exclusive from each other.

MasterCornholio937d ago

In my opinion.

Sales = PS4

Games = PS4

:)

bouzebbal937d ago (Edited 937d ago )

i answered you in another thread
http://n4g.com/news/1701389...
but i'm gonna paste most of it for you once again:

The Order
Bloodborne
Persona 5
Dragon Quest Heroes
No Man's Sky
Until Dawn
Tearaway Unfolded
Everybody Gone to The Rapture
Hellblade
Ratchet and Clank reboot
SFV beta. I put this here cause it's a big deal for many out here, but SFV is sh** right no one cares about that like indies were sh** just a few months ago.

I will spare you games like The Witness, Alienation, Fat Princess and all the massive number of great indies..

Similarly, Wii U is also gonna have a big presence this year:

Kirby
Splatoon
Yoshi
Starfox
Xenoblade
Mario Maker

No doubt x1 is getting cool games, but denying that competition has games for this year is fanboy to the max. You don't like PS4? fair play! but don't come up with lies.
i usually don't like to post in these worthless console wars threads, but some people's fanboyism is getting out of hand..

johndoe11211937d ago

PCGamingNoobs937d ago

lets wait to see how all the games turn out first. its pretty neck and neck for this year

oasdada937d ago

more like how much critics are paid i guess.. tbh i tried to critical assess the order as harshly as i can and i still couldnt come up to how it even got 6.. broken games get 6 :/

on the side note totally had to agree with ori reviews.. that game in my eyes has taken the crown from nintendo
