Then don't buy them. This is free to play game.... i guess you expect them to not try to make their money back. Why would any company make a product with no way to make money on it? Gamers: this single most self-entitled group of whiners in the world. smh

More to the point. Microtransactions are fine, depending on how they are implemented. #1.5

What town and what store? I'm sure that there are people reading this who would love a PS4. You would be doing everyone a favor if you have that info, as with one simple phone call to the store that you are referencing, someone can be enjoying their new PS4 system by the weekend! #1.3.2

Actually, the gaming media has been hyping this game even before we learned that it was exclusive to MS platforms (XB1, XB360 and Windows).

But, I never understood the hype on this and why it has become the "savior" of the XB1. Maybe it will be fun, but personally, I like single-player games. I just don't understand the hype over a full retail priced game that is online Multiplayer only. Of the XB1 exclusives, I don't get... #1.6

That is exactly right... the XB1 has been available at Gamestop, Target, Walmart and Amazon through the holidays, with a few days of exception right before Christmas. PS4 not available anywhere and when it is, it sells out very quickly. #1.3

Man, they don't stay for long! Yet, XB1 is available everywhere! Even the PS4 Camera has been sold out since shortly after launch! #2.2

@nukeitall

Yeah... this makes perfect sense. /s

Sony will spend $380 million to acquire Gaikai, spend money to re-brand it as Playstation Now, spend money to market the new platform, spend money to include deals with other media companies (movies, television content), and then Sony will charge so much that they won't be able to sell subscriptions to the service that the spent hundreds of millions of dollars on so that they will lose hundreds of millions o... #1.2.2

Why should Sony (or MS or Nintendo or Apple or any other media company) give their intellectual property away? No one complains when the movie companies charge you for "newer" versions of the same old movies. I can't tell you how many movies I've owned on VHS, DVD and the Bluray, with multiple versions of each -- Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, the Godfather, Disney classics, etc... The PS1, PS2 and PS3 eras are over and there is no obligation for Sony to allow us to use old... #1.1.24

Just found some really dumb Dvorak opinions of the past:

In 1984 John C. Dvorak stated the mouse as a reason the Macintosh would fail: “The Macintosh uses an experimental pointing device called a ‘mouse’. There is no evidence that people want to use these things.” [San Francisco Examiner on February 19th, 1984]

In his 2007 article for Marketwatch regarding the iPhone, Dvorak wrote "If [Apple's] smart, it will call the iPhone a 'reference design&#... #2.1.7

John C. Dvorak is a curmudgeon and has been writing about technology since the 1980s, including PC Magazine, Info World, worked on CBS's Market Watch, as well as some other mags that I can't remember... he is also a mainstay on Twit TV with Leo Laporte... And Dvorak has gotten more miserable and contrarian as time has gone on. I listen to Twit almost every week and I constantly find myself cringing whenever he opens his mouth.

That beings said, this is a TERRIBLE art... #2.1.5

Lol.. yeah "shocking" that someone would write an article about something so obvious... I think that the XB1 has been benefiting from the lack of PS4 availability. Not to say that the XB1 wouldn't be selling well regardless, but the "hard to find" PS4 issue is playing a role, especially when parents are looking to buy their kids a gift. #1.1

PS4 already sold out at Amazon...

XB1, still available on Amazon, and has been for weeks. Didn't even sell out on Amazon leading up to Xmas. If XB1 was in such high demand, MS wouldn't be able to keep up with supply. #1.2

@BALLBAGS... read the article... Sony is going to be the console most aligned with Destiny and Watchdogs, similar to the XB360's relationship with CoD and the XB1's relationship with Titanfall, as only the first game in the series will be exclusive to MS.

"Two titles which will define what next generation gaming will look in its mature phase will be Watch Dogs and Destiny.

"These are two games we have aligned with closely and will have subst... #1.4

These comments are completely based upon the VGChartz numbers, which I know many people (including myself) take with a grain of salt.

That being said, it is interesting that the WiiU outsold the XB1 globally. Looking at the bigger picture for MS, think that the only thing keeping MS in the "game" is the U.S. The 360 continues to sell in the U.S., while it is not moving many units in the rest of the world, being outsold by the PS4 and the PS3 worldwide. In the U.S... #1.4

@mikeslemonade

Sony's goal was to sell 3 million by the end of the calendar year and 5 million PS4s by March (the end of their fiscal year). So, I disagree that "Sony, themselves, didn't even expect to sell this much." #1.1.4

@Dwntwn

I agree that the number of Titanfall pre-orders is greater than the number of I:SS pre-orders. But, they are not that far apart at only about 15,000 units (using VGChartz's numbers). I have no doubt that Titanfall and Halo 5 will move XB1s. But, games such as I:SS will move PS4s. And, by the way, multiplats such as Destiny and Watchdogs will sell more on the PS4 and move more PS4 hardware as those games are being associated with the PS4 (similar to COD being a... #5.2.2

@Bigpappy

I would agree with you that pre-orders are not necessarily accurate predictors of sales, but they are predictors of interest in a particular IP. It means that a particular game is on a persons' radar, even if it is only due to hype and the pre-order never leads to an actual sale. But, a certain percentage (I don't know the number) of pre-orders do lead to actual sales to the end user. Game companies also use pre-orders to give them indicators of how many... #5.1.1
