My goodness PS4 has sold 5,465,806 more than Xbox One. That's just incredible.

trunkswd930d ago

PlayStation has dominated in Europe since PS1. Gap will only continue to grow.

breakpad929d ago (Edited 929d ago )

Sony had a good reputation in Europe even before PS brand with its TVs and reliable electronics ...PS1 was welcomed and created a huge name ..also Europeans have a taste for quality and dont like cheaply made semi propaganda FPSs

cuicui210929d ago

You're forgetting wii's massive success, not to mention the handheld's market. This is more about cycles, with good chances that wii owners didn't pay attention to wii U but might be interested by the "NX" (for example). True though that sony dominated with PS1, PS2 and now PS4

madmonkey01929d ago

pretty much following the same pattern of its last 3 generations.

spacedelete929d ago

its not a surprise when the competition is underwelming. to most people its not even a choice. PS4 wins by default as Wii U is a joke and Xbox One just focuses on the same games like COD, Halo, Madden most of which you can play on PS4 anyway.

lastking95928d ago

Didn't the ps3 outsell 360 by 20 million in Europe? This isn't a shock and was expected.

That playstation domination. Well what do you expect? It's the world's most powerful console with the most games and the highest rated exclusives. It makes sense.

kraenk12929d ago

Plus Europe was always a PS loyal continent and gamers don't forget as easily as Americans do, it seems.

jcnba28929d ago

Not trying to trounce on your party or anything but what you said was not true.

"Well what do you expect? It's the world's most powerful console"

True, but it's the first time the most powerful console of it's gen took first place in sales. PS1, PS2, Wii were all weaker than their competitors but still won their sales-wise.

" the highest rated exclusives"

This is also not true.

Highest rated exclusive (not port or remaster) on PS4 is Bloodborne with a 92 metacritic.

Highest rated exclusive (not port or remaster) on Wii U is Super Mario 3D World with a 93 metacritic.

So yeah...

MasterCornholio929d ago

Ports and remasters are still games so the highest rated exclusive is the Last of Us remastered.

Its funny how people will manipulate library's in order to get their point across.

Here let me do the same.

Highest rated exclusive that's not a port or remaster or an old IP would be Bloodborne.


madmonkey01929d ago (Edited 929d ago )

ps3 also took first place in sales, being arguably the most powerful console of its generation.

BiggerBoss929d ago (Edited 929d ago )

@madmonkey, no, the Ps3 didnt. Its still a good ways behind the Wii

jcnba28929d ago (Edited 929d ago )

"Ports and remasters are still games so the highest rated exclusive is the Last of Us remastered."

Yeah no, TLoU is a last gen game. Try again.

Would you like me to include Wii U's remastered scores as well as all of the other high-rated exclusives?

Yeah didn't think so. Its funny how people will manipulate library's in order to get their point across.

"Highest rated exclusive that's not a port or remaster or an old IP would be Bloodborne."

Super Mario 3D world was a whole new concept. Bloodborne is a carbon copy of the Souls games.


madmonkey01929d ago

@biggerboss, you are right, i completely forgot about the wii.

MasterCornholio929d ago (Edited 929d ago )

Super Mario 3D World isn't a new concept. It basicaly takes a character that's existed since the 80s and puts him in a game thats a console version of Super Mario 3D land. At least Bloodborne is a new IP with a brand new world design and new characters. Plus they even changed the gameplay quite a bit from the last games. I'm playing Dark Souls 2 and it doesn't really feel like Bloodborne to me.

If you want to include remasters as well go ahead. I don't see any problem with counting them as games. But even if you do include them The Last of Us remastered is still the highest rated. Maybe even GTAV of you want to count that as well. Still a game that you can play on the PS4 and not the Wii U.

Oops there I go again doing the same thing that you did. Wow.

@BiggerBoss has the PS3 at 33.9M and the Wii at 33.7M in Europe, so madmonkey01 is correct. Just.

If something is certain its that PlayStation will always sell the most units in Europe compared to the competition every generation

Rob_Ko929d ago

Europeans are neutral in this console war unlike americans and japanese, we simply buy better product

MasterCornholio929d ago

Looks like demand for the Xbox One is starting to flatten out. Microsoft needs to fix this because they can't allow the competition to get too far ahead.

jcnba28929d ago (Edited 929d ago )

Xbox will be fine since PS4 has barely any worthy exclusives left for 2015.

929d ago
MasterCornholio929d ago (Edited 929d ago )

You people always say that but then the opposite happens.

Funny isn't it?

I'm not expecting Xbox to outsell the PS4 in Europe to be honest even with a supposed amazing lineup that they have this year. Even the supposedly amazing lineup that they had last year didn't do enough for the system in Europe.

I guess we can all come to a conclusion with this. That the lineups are not amazing to everyone. The public will buy the system with the best lineup (according to them) and well see the results reflected in the sales of the system. Price isn't a factor anymore since they are both priced the same.

Moldiver929d ago


'Gamers like' you huh?

Remember this?:

"MyJamXbox + 5h ago
Hope sony delivers this e3 so I can switch sides.
Tired of waiting for games. Xbox brings games only two
Months in a whole year. Smh."

you only got 24 comments and most of them involves you trolling Xbox owners on N4G...who do you think you are fooling here?

Exhibit B, ladies and gentlemen::

SO what about 'gamers' like you? gamers who make pro xbox sounding forum names than talk shit about said console in their name? What about 'gamers' like you who have multiple accounts ( I already exposed masta killa and his other accounts. You wanna be next? just try me.)

So....What about 'gamers' like you? Why should anybody take you or your opinions seriously. look at the things you do and say. I genuinely think you have issues of some kind. what do you hope to achieve by making a dupe account just so you have more bubs to talk smack about a product that you dont own?..what would compel you to pretend to be an xbox fan and diss it, over the internet? dont you see how weird that is? And how obvious it is that you are a dupe account?Im going to bet that you are magicite or mastakilla, they always do stuff like this.

jcnba28929d ago (Edited 929d ago )


Calling me a fanboy and I don't even like Xbox lol

Xbox One has 2 huge exclusives this fall, Halo and Tomb Raider, what does PS4 have exactly?

The public will buy the system with the best lineup (according to them) and well see the results reflected in the sales of the system."


Ok so you would agree with me then when I say Wii had the best line up of last gen? Yeah didn't think so.

You keep contradicting yourself.

Philface929d ago

@ jcnba28

the Wii actually had a pretty good line up (For me it was even the best of the generation). Just look at Xenoblade, Last Stoy, Zelda, Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime Corruption.

JMyers928d ago (Edited 928d ago )

I guess only holiday 2015 matters in terms of exclusives. Whatever comes out pre Sept has not value... if these games were on XB1 thought at the start of this year then the tune would be... look at all these games already released.

MasterCornholio928d ago (Edited 928d ago )

Well the Wii did have one of the best games last gen. A game called Super Mario Galaxy. The sequel was also excellent as well. No one is arguing that the Wii had some fantastic first party games.

But if your talking about the overall quality of the library the abundance of shovel ware and the lack of 3rd party support really hurts it. In the case of the Wii U people will argue that it has the best library due to fantastic games like Bayonetta 2 but the lack of 3rd party support will make it inferior to the others.

3rd party support is absolutely vital to a gaming console because a firm like Nintendo can't produce a ton of games on a yearly basis and they can't cover every single 3rd party game that the Wii I misses.

Xbox needs to fix what exactly? Europe has always been about 80% Playstation and 20% "other"

These are great numbers, they really are. Im a PS4 owner myself (living in the USofA though)

Microsoft would love more sales in Europe and any kind of sale in Asia of course.

Concertoine928d ago (Edited 928d ago )


"Maybe for fanboys like you."

Are you seriously implying the Xbox isn't fine unless it's outselling the PS4? Smh, this website.
