A look at how the big three will handle new consoles, upgraded hardware and maintaing sales dominance.
It all points to a Ps4 dominated year again as always. With exclusive Games like Horizon, God of war 4, Ni-oh and a whole lot of exclusive diverse games coming this year. Its a one - two punch from the Ps4 in 2017
Mark my words, God of war 4 is not coming out this year. Horizon - Microsoft has crackdown 3 Ni-oh - Microsoft has sea of theives Microsoft games are more epic scale and scope. AAA games are what matter to most people. These are AAA games so people are not confused anymore God of war Crackdown 3 sea of theives Gears of war Call of duty Battlefield Fallout Elder scrolls Bloodborne Dark souls The legend of Zelda Spiderman Halo Overwatch Deus ex Dishonored The last of us Uncharted Grand theft auto Quantum break Forza horizon 3 red dead redemption Batman arkham series These are the games that people buy. Stop using the fact that PS4 has an overwhelming abundance of clone and garbage games. Notice how Xbox fanboys never use trash games to back up their argument for exclusive games, just AAA's ?. With all the third-party and first party games coming out this year no one is getting those garbage games In big numbers. @stunawhat you posted is not true at all. Can you Please tell me what New PlayStation IP so better than uncharted 4?Dead rising 4 outsold the last guardian Halo 5 outsold Uncharted 4 ( it's been out longer and has been cheaper longer do you really think it hasn't sold more than the 5 million back in January of last year) give me a break lol Gears of war 4 outsold infamous second son Killer instinct outsold street fighter 5 Titanfall on Xbox one outsold Titanfall 2 on ps4 Ryze outsold knack Dead rising 3 outsold Killzone ORI and the blind Forrest outsold resogun Do you got any numbers and/or the links to prove me wrong or you right ? You guys act like we have no memories and that your exclusive's are we're so amazing. When Microsoft does hopefully finally release sales numbers on all the exclusives at E3 I'm gonna come here and serve all you guys some stank ass crow.
Just stop it man! As of now all the games you listed all the 3rd party games have sold better on PS4!And to make matters worse the majority of PS4 1st party games have outsold the majority of Microsoft's 1st party games. You want to list something list a new Ip of Microsoft's that performed as well as their well as their well known Ip's!? Sony has a couple.
FYI, this guy sends PM to people with garbage like this LOL And insults them in the PM's.
Reads like it was written by some noob, who Googled the three consoles, and collected some random data.
True, but i bet you itll cue the sony only fans.... like clock work
Most successful ? hmm this is so difficult to choose!, hmm lets see: * Xbone no exclusives and sad gaming library and the scorpio at this point is just an imaginary console by MS. * The switch is just a damn tablet with Marios/Pokemons, Zeldas and imaginary hipsters as gamers(lol), ok moving ON * The PS4 with lots exclusives releasing this year, not to mention the superior multiplatforms, and with more than 50 millions console sold it only means one thing more games will be created for the PS4. :D Ha! who am I kidding the PS4 wins 2017 easily :D
Odds on this guy being a Sony fan now 1/20 !!!
Also evidently the attachment rate for Gears 4 on Xbox One.
Hahaha Rimeskeem you cheeky bugger!
What AAA games are being created because Sony has sold a lot of PS4's ? can you tell me that ? I'll wait here
Mostly every major third party game you can imagine. PS4 is the market leader and is installed comfortably in every major country. So developers are more than willing to make PS4 games. Unlike Xbox which sells like a Cory Feldman CD in japan.
Yes but how is that affected the Xbox or Microsoft. 99% Of AAA third party games come to the Xbox so I don't get what you're saying. The console industry is dying in Japan.
Can you tell us what AAA games mean? You named crackdown and sea of thieves in your so called AAA games but what makes them AAA as opposed to Persona 5, Nioh, nier automata? Because they're western? Or are you sure that the games you mentioned have a bigger budget? Then you called bloodborne AAA, why? Because it reviewed well and was an awesome game or the budget? Persona 5, nier automata both have better budget then the games you've named and you can only play the demo of nier to get the feel of the production value or check persona 5 on YouTube or see how much it sold first week in Japan to see how big of a deal that game is for jrpg fans worldwide. Don't let marketing cloud what's in front of your eyes. Oh by the way, ratchet and clank sold pretty well, has some crazy graphics , gameplay and reviewed really well but for you, QB was AAA but rachet wasn't?
Sony Nintendo might do really good with the Switch as well.
i think nintendo every body loves it most ps4 xbox one owners will get it and it might have nintendo strongest games like zelda and 3d mario in the first year and rumors says its under 400$ so i think it will be nintendo
As a PS4 owner I would definitely pick up a switch before an XBS or a PS4Pro since it will offer console gaming on the go plus Nintendo exclusives. I don't own a 4K TV so I'm not that interested in playing PS4/XB1 games at 4K which is what the Scopio and Pro does. It's not like they are next gen systems or anything. @a7 I beleive alot of people have the same mentality with the Scorpio as well. I mean all your doing is playing current generation games at a higher resolution. It's not like it's a next gen leap in visuals or anything.
i have both ps4 pro and 4k tv and i can tell u for now its not worth it i like playing games in 60fps and for now only rise of tomb raider gives this option
Crackdown 3 if it works as planned is game changer and a next gen leap in tech.
Sony just seems to be doing everything, mostly right this time around, solid exclusives, decent pricing especially compared to the PS3, and strong hardware. I still don't know how VR is going to turn out, but it seems people who own it love it, it just needs more content which should be on the way this year. I just can't see the Scorpio working out, too well. I think they're falling into the trap that the PS3 started in last gen. The PS3's price was far too high when it came out and Sony played catch up almost the entire generation mostly because of the price, imo. The Scorpio won't be cheap and they'll suffer losses for it. Although I hope Nintendo does great things with the Switch, they just don't seem to know what they're doing either... so many missteps. If their GPU is underpowered at all, the Switch is going to have the same issues the Wii had with 3rd party devs porting quality titles. Except they won't have the same crazy sales figures to get them through this generation.
the dreamcast was stronger than ps1 and it failed the old xbox was stronger than ps2 and it failed the ps3 stronger than the wii and it failed dont think xbox scorpio will do any better with no strong exclusives or good console price
the ps4pro has no strong exclusives. Crackdown 3 is the strongest exclusive there is going to be this year. Once people see that it works it will sell like hotcakes.
"the ps4pro has no strong exclusives". Every single Sony exclusive will be for both the PS4 and the PS4 Pro. What the hell are you talking about? They're different integrations of the same system.
Nintendo might be a black sheep that might surprise us all, Sony will be a white sheep and Microsoft can be Sheep feces
IF they get 3rd party support they could very well have the best year out of the big 3. If not, Sony will continue to dominate.
Sony, no doubt, followed by Nintendo with the Switch, according to me. IF it has a good price
Starts with an S and ends with a Y.
Sandy? Smiley? Sexy? Snappy? Smarty?.... SONY!!!!
We'll know by the 31st December. A lot of exciting things can happen along the way especially at e3.
Cant predict anything about Nintendo or Microsoft until we see the prices of the Switch & Scorpio
This question could be better answered if we knew the price tag on Scorpio and Switch. Sony is focused on Software for 2017 with all their Hardware rolled out already. Nintendo and Microsoft will be focused on supporting and optimizing their new Hardware. The price tag's will factor into who will be successful, this includes Sony price dropping as well
Hope they all do well, most important thing going forward for all 3 companies would be less delayed and/or bug ridden game releases, QA standards have been very low this gen
Imo all 3 could have a really good year. Brand new console for Nintendo with a new Zelda and Mario game, im sold. Brand new console from MS, and it's the most powerful ever made, only thing I need to see now is footage of a game running on it compared to the X1. Sony doesn't need to worry about hardware imo, ppl will buy them this year simply cause their friends and family likely own one and they want to game online with them with games like Battlefront 2, Destiny 2, and new iterations of CoD coming out this year. Plus I really think their conferences in 2016 painted a bright pricture and got everyone hype. 2017 is shaping up to be a very special year in gaming, get ready folks!
Sony without a doubt. Scorpio is going to be released at the end of the year and it could even be dalayed to 2018 so it does not even count for 2017. And with Nintendo, well, they need some kind of miracle and hope it turns out to be good so that leave Sony with a more solid 2017.
I think Sony will still have the more s uccessful year. Especially now that all the hardware is out. Its all games from here on out and theres tons coming and all genres are covered Nintendo will be #2, the Switch comes in March and if its priced right and has good lineup thats gonna sell like Hot cakes too...all depends how many Nintendo decided to make for demand. MS will be last! They just dont have the games to compete with everything Sony has and nothing that will keep you fromuying a Switch. And imo the only true excitement I have for Xbox this yr. Is Scorpio and a few games here and there like Halo war ,etc.
Microsoft w/ Scorpio , have my money & time Guaranteed. So bring the games ....
Imo from looking at the games I'd say Sony. Scorpio could do really well but considering it releases at the end of the year it might be two late to mitigate what we already know and any surprises from Sony. Switch looks great and will have the majority of the year to sell but I think plenty of people will hold off to wait and see. Zelda breath of the wild could really push the systems popularity but it is on wii u (no official announcement to say otherwise) which could make people play it on that if they already have it/pick up a cheap second hand one. We'll see but I do hope the console does well because it's a great concept and is a great differentiator for in the market.
Who cares? As long as all 3 have enough success to keep going forward and give ALL console gamers options. We ALL win. The 3 consoles have their own unique features that appeal to certain people. That's pretty cool.
Sony and Nintendo. Japan will be where Switch can get a sizable advantage over Xbox. Microsoft to me is always third because worldwide it's presence is not much.
Here the question is what kind of impact will have the Switch on home consoles and i think it wont, because its a portable that can dock at home. The other question will be what kind of strategy will Sony have in term of price. Will they cut the price of the PS4/Pro before E3? Price rules, im always saying the same, because its the reality. Microsoft will do the same they did last year. «Exclusives» and Scorpio late in the year, one or two flops like sea of thieves in the middle...
SONY. And we're done here.
