GameRevolution: "Entering November, the Xbox One has been outselling the PS4 in North America for four months in a row. Although many were hopeful that this would continue into 2017, the streak has officially come to an end."
THE KING IS BACK!
Never went anywhere!
Yep. Won every single month's world-wide sales since it came out. It's only the US and UK where XB1 has won a few months with cuts and the new Slim. When MS start taking Playstation's lead and focusing on GAMES then we may see a difference.
Its crazy how some Xbox folks were celebrating Xbox One winning four months out of a whole year.
After all the Holiday Exclusive rants and articles, this is a big L. Make no mistake. Read this http://www.icxm.net/x/xbox-...
For MS? Not really no need to over exaggerate,
How is it a big L? Stop exxagerating, its back to normal...
In terms of numbers, yes, it will probably wipe most (if not all) of any gains the X1 made in those months. And, this is just November. December will widen the PS4's US total lead.
@Overload... "This is a big L..." most sad and over exaggerated line of the night... Microsoft can buy Sony outright in cash and not break from it...
If you have 2 months of preorders released at one time, as well if you discount your new slim console to $249 and bundle 3 games with it I'd expect a big win. http://www.gamesradar.com/b...
Wow. Haha Unbelievable. Here's how people would nearly feel reading the propaganda stuff from that xbox site 'O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two ginscented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother' When you think about it, it's scary that sort of brain washing is happening in this day and age in the media for gaming consoles.
I've seen the comments on that propaganda article you posted. It seems like every comment done to hype up the PS4 has been edited by staff, but every Xbox pro comment has been left intact. Xbox fanboys are truly pathetic. Edit: I get a disagree which truly proves my point. :)
Npd are not that important Sony has been outselling xb1 globally since launch snd that never changed. Ff sold 700k in their home country Japan but sold 5 million world wide, which number do you think square likes best.
I read that article, it fails to mention that whilst Xbox was "winning" it was being outsold by 120,000 a week worldwide. How is losing on a slightly smaller scale than normal a "turning point"? The gap is still growing, it's now at a ratio of 1.8:1 instead of 2:1. SONY ARE DOOMED...lol
Whats wrong with that? I could say (Its crazy how some Playstation folks were celebrating Playstation 4 winning eight months out of a whole year.)
8 months? you mean 12 months, ps4 won worldwide everymonth since launch xo only won in NA for a few months not worldwide
C'mon. The world doesn't count. It's all about North America.
Its even more pathetic when you consider how many they've won since the launch of these new consoles in 2013. Overall probably not to many more then the four month streak they just had.
and that's only npd , world wide Sony has had top sales every day since launch.
You mean 4 months out of 30 months lol.
What's crazier is that they were losing by ~120,000 units a week globally whilst claiming a victory. Sony could show the Japanese sales figures and claim victory every month, but they're too classy for that. Last week PS4 sold over 31,000 units in Japan, XboxOne sold 237 in total. That is a far bigger margin than MS has ever had over Sony in the States.
At the end of the day, I don't think anyone is losing sleep over these numbers. And if they are, I hope they're investors.
Xbone S is closing the gap, guys!! 4k upscale, UHD drive.....em....nope MS PR : "We have seen strong momentum for Xbox One since announcing the new Xbox One S at E3 in June. That momentum continued in November as gaming consoles were once again among the most sought-after products to buy over Black Friday weekend. In addition, we saw record engagement among Xbox One owners on Xbox Live as fans enjoyed new games and great deals. In fact, the total players online on Sunday, Nov. 27 was up 40 percent compared to last year. If you missed the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, we are pleased to be extending our $50 off offer on all Xbox One S consoles for a limited time starting Dec. 11 at participating U.S. retailers. And if you're looking to pair your new Xbox One S with a brand new 4K TV, we're partnering with many leading retailers, including Best Buy, where you can save $150 and get a free Xbox Wireless Controller when you buy an Xbox One S with select 4K TVs." They're back to Monthly Active Users
Damn I wanted to know hot many shots were fired in Halo. Such crucial info.
"30 million bullets missed their target in Halo this November, while 3 million chainsaws connected against the zombie apocalypse in Dead Rising. This is the turning point year for Microsoft. With the console going down to the low $200s, 2-3 game bundles and 40% more users playing this Saturday as opposed to last Saturday, it's obviously the best time ever to be an Xbox gamer. 2017 will be the greatest games lineup in Xbox history again. Only Microsoft can string along the same 5-6 games announced years ago and make them still seem relevant. Xbox is the best box and Scorpio is the next box to knock the socks off of ps4s block. Don't wait, chop chop, go cop an Xbox for mom and pops." Did that satiate your thirst for crucial Xbox info? Lol
And back to nearly always discounted consoles.
Have to do it to sell your product? Wasn't good enough to sell itself then IMO
Did you see the bestbuy Black Friday sales on PS4 slim? $249 with 3 games, that's a discounted system
Huh. I guess that's not discounted? Lol
Please don't confuse Sony's Black Friday deal with Microsoft's year-round sales.
@Krib If that's the case XB1 must be super budget, my store had bundled game systems, free Fallout4, free game of your choice and $50 off. Still got outsold by PS4. You try so hard. One store sale all you got? Lol.
Guys, i just noticed something in MS's PR. Here is the part : "That momentum continued in November as gaming consoles were once again among the most sought-after products to buy over Black Friday weekend." Now they included a PlayStation in their PR. LOL!
I was thinking the same thing, lol!
They're not even talking about Monthly Active Users. Microsoft literally compared the number of active users on November 27, 2016 vs. November 27, 2015. "In fact, the total players online on Sunday, Nov. 27 was up 40 percent compared to last year"
wow.... Not only do they need to retreat to talk about active users, they go so low they need to talk about a single day. That's just so pathetic I have no idea why they chose to do that.
What the heck does record engagement mean? Those people over at Microsoft sure like to throw big words around and disguise people from the truth. There were 40% more players online YOY huh? Sounds like a decline to me. Anything less than 100% would indicate a decline in sales. Considering the gap between 40 and 100, it doesn't seem the console has been selling as well as they'd like us to believe. How's that for an analysis?! Next time please come at us with something more concrete MS, like how many zombies were killed in spaceland, or how many guns were swapped in Halo, or how many melée attacks were executed in Battlefield.
Either I don't understand what you are talking about or you aren't very good at math. You have 100 players online last year. You have 40% more online this year. This means you have 140 players online this year. Not a decline.
Meaning that if you have those 100 people and you gain 40%more, yes you have 140, but the momentum which you gained people has gone down. So let's say that those theoretical 100 people represent 2 years on the market, and now at 40% they have 140. You don't see how the numbers went down? Obviously you're never going to always have 100% or better growth and I'd advise companies against that. I'm only saying that the rate at which they gained players shows that they didn't sell as many X1s as they want us to believe. Especially considering how they were selling more in the last year than they have previously. And actually, math was my best subject. Where I said anything less than 100% would be a decline would only really work in year 2, but the X1 was supposedly selling so great this year. The numbers I'm seeing say otherwise Did you see a story not that long ago where the X1 had this huge percentage jump and people were claiming how well they were doing because of it? Some people were ripping on Sony because they had a smaller number and automatically jumped at "MS is better because my numbers are biggah!!" When you have a lower initial install base it's easier to have a bigger percentage jump. Same thing that's going on here. I hope that clears it up 👍🏻
So how much percentage of growth in players online should they have had? I'm sorry but no matter how you are trying to spin it, there was growth in players online. Now maybe there is a decline in the rate of which they are gaining players online, but the actual players online increased. I don't think you are going to see either console increase players online more than 50% yoy this many years into this generation. At least I see your motivation of trying to get back at people for saying bad things about Sony with your last paragraph.
yep The PS4 HAS NEVER lost sales to the Xbox One in World Wide sales. Regardless of NPD wins or not. PS4 is DOMINATING this so called 'console war'. Playstation fans can be extremely happy for the future of gaming. Such great titles coming that you simply can't play anywhere else.
Expect Xbone sales to start massively dwindling in January 2017 and this will continue every month until the saviour GDDR5 Scorpio is released. It happened to PS4 in August this year after Sony confirmed the Neo's existence at E3 2016 but they wouldn't be showing it yet until Sep and then launching it in Nov. What happened PS4 sales is proof of this. Microsoft announcing the Scorpio so early is going to come back to bite them severely going into the first 6 months of next year.
The Xbone npd victories where due to gamers holding off buying ps4 for the pro. Obviously Microsoft rhetoric jumped on the situation but the reality is most people want Sony's console as it is the best by far..
PS4 Pro and PSVR. Sony always seem to be at the front with new innovations. And they keep studios and focus on games and gamers. They are getting their just rewards - where would we be with just MS and Nintendo?
But people wouldn't wait for Scorpio? Doesn't it go both ways?
Scorpio is a long way off, once full specs, a price and release date are announced then we'll see some people hold off buying an XB1s for Scorpio.
Nah, we know enough about Scorpio. It's a much more powerful Xbox One. That would be enough to stop a lot of people from buying an Xbox One right now.
yeah its next year... but if i hadnt bought a xbox yet, knowing a way better one is next year, id probably wait.. just saying... if people are waiting for one, they are waiting for the other...
This was to be expected.
The tides have returned
they never left
After PSX, I see a huge PS tidal wave.
What happened to everyone wanting 4K bluray players instead of a better gaming console?
I wish it did have a uhd player actually!!! Disappointed that it did not. Luckly if I want a console I buy it, so I also bought xbone s for the uhd and bought forza 3 and gears 4. They were both really cool and I was really impressed actually gears and forza in hdr wow!!! But other then that Not much. always being a Sony gamer I felt really bad for people who just have an xbox!!!! I don't understand what you play??? There's no exclusives just a handful and 2 or 3 are good...what are you guys always trying to defend???? I love the Xbox for what i use it for and to see the potential with gears and forza, I don't get why they don't make games!!! It's like Sony is Marvel and MS is DC like get it right!! How many reboots??? Just make a game, it would help sell systems!!!!! (oh shit are Xbox players the ones who like DC movies lol oh relax)
The selection of available 4K movies or media in general is just a joke atm. Most stuff is just upscaled anyway.
"I suggest you check out bluray.com and see the impact of physical uhd and the thousands of titles being released on uhd....yes thousands. And new release movies don't hit 4k streaming anytime soon. I'm aware Xbox one s uhd is not the best, but it certainly beats out streaming 4k any day of the week." At the moment UHD blurays are really rather expensive, they are around €30 here while regular blurays go for €15 to €20. I've stopped buying physical movies when bluray was announced, yes, it is way better, nice and all, but already replaced my VHS collection with DVDs and wasn't going to do that again, and frankly, am glad I didn't since now they are in 4k, yeah, no. So I really don't care all that much that there's no UHD player in the Pro. As for available content, well, it's actually even worse around here on Netflix and the likes, hence why not many people feel the need to switch to 4k TVs already. There is something interesting going on tho, perhaps Sony knew about that since they own movie studios as well, there are plans in the US to release new movies on select streaming services TWO WEEKS after they've been released at the movies. For a price of 2 movie tickets you can then watch it at your home and if they are smart they will do this also in 4k. Two movie tickets is about the same price as an UHD bluray around here, honestly, if I really wanted to see a movie I think I would do that instead. No more going to the movies, just stay at your comfy home, ahhhh. Anyhoo, I digress, this was the whole point of me replying, this way new movies are available WAY, WAY SOONER streaming than they are on disc.......
That's the direction the industry is heading and Sony knows it better than anyone.
Its a crappy 4k blu ray player in comparison to straight blu ray players. But i dont even use the 4kplayer i have, I stream 4k instead, more content and it is cheaper
What content are you streaming?? Just curious because where I live the only one streaming 4k is Netflix and the selection is a joke. And the Xbox uhd looks unbelievable better then any streaming me or my friends have seen. Might be cheaper in Netflix but they have 2-4 actual full length movies that are crap, a whole whack of living art, stand up, and Netflix shows.... And not a single title on 4k Netflix looks even close to star trek or the shallows or the revenant or ECT..... I suggest you check out bluray.com and see the impact of physical uhd and the thousands of titles being released on uhd....yes thousands. And new release movies don't hit 4k streaming anytime soon. I'm aware Xbox one s uhd is not the best, but it certainly beats out streaming 4k any day of the week. If you can't see that maybe have you're eyes checked. I'm so tired of everyone downplaying the lack of uhd it's so ridiculous why wouldn't any ps4 pro owner want one in the system?????? A system that boast 4k??? I'm just saying it's nonsense. @letsa_go. Letsa get one thing straight!! Xbox one s is the first console I've bought from them and it was for uhd. I'm a Sony gamer first and foremost always have always will. But you see my mind is open. I'm not ignorant like a child you see. I prefer Sony for so many reasons over ms, I've always just liked Sony games more. So yes I can tell the difference in 4k streaming vs uhd on my 4k hdr and why??? Because I have every option of format and I see it first-hand from streaming 4k to uhds. Sony's my preferred system but God forbid I'm upset about lack of uhd. I must be the enemy bahahaha
I have a console to play games, who buys 4K blu days ??? If this is the one thing you have to argue about a games console being better than another one, something is sadly wrong, the clue is in the name of the product, games console. I never bought blu Ray movies when I had a PS3. You can't seriously think there are enough people buying a console just to watch 4K movies, it's about the games.
COMEBACK! COMEBACK! COMEBACK! ..........Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn d it's gone.
Supreme Victory! http://m.imgur.com/WhYFBLX?...
Yay Ip Man at his finest.
Massive Sudoku incoming.. :)
Congratz! owner of a ps4 pro! got mine during psx, loving the benefits, especially on TLG.
Yeah, TLG looks gorgeous. The pre-release gameplay videos did look like an early PS3 title (minus Trico, which PS3 could not have rendered like that), but the final product running at ~1900p on PS4Pro with HDR is fantastic--way better than the pre-release videos.
