So, you’ve finally decided you want to make the leap to a next-gen console? You probably have a few questions, though, or perhaps you’ve merely caught some of the ongoing debate between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 fanatics.
"Sony may have sold more units since 2013, sure, but Microsoft is quickly closing the gap" Isn't the gap growing?
I know, right? And the article ends with the obvious quote "Ultimately both devices are quite good and getting better"
Loosing is the new winning.
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.
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.
Yea if were talking bout sales PS4 easily wins that
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.
The sales gap? Um what? :I
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; http://www.yogamagazine.com...
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.
Hacks are something Sony did not do to you, where MS executives making decisions to try and screw gamers over is ALL on them.
@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.
lol yes, garbage article...
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
Or poison the King to watch him turn purple and bow to no one .
@castillo When we've poisoned our ownselves already!!! Not smart enough :)
The winner is the ps4, natch. It's been a winner since day one.
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
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.
You missed - Flower (91) - Sound Shapes (84)
@chrismichaels Dead Rising 3 Kalimba Minecraft KillerInstinct State of Decay D4 Dark Dreams Don't Die
@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.
Sony had higher rated first party games. Titanfall isnt even first party
Hmmm, and the point of that article wassssssss? *Sarcasm"
The true answer to this is which ever console is your favorite. Theirs no crowned king.
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
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!
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.
Sssh you cant say things like that they will take away your bubblez!!
Sales = ps4 Games = xbox It will be a good year this year
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.
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
@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!!!
