PS4 Vs. Xbox One: 80% Of Gamers Would Still Prefer PS4 If Xbox One Cost $400, According To Poll

A current poll indicates that gamers would still buy the PS4 over the Xbox One even if the PS4 and the Xbox One both cost $400. Currently, the PS4 costs $399, while the Xbox One will run you $499.

The story is too old to be commented.

At first there were the pre-orders and now the polls.

Maria c'mon you are better than this !


georgeenoob1925d ago (Edited 1925d ago )

Lol what's with this Maria troll.

OT: Like I said before, only thing we get out of Xbox vs PS4 polls is which side has the most fanboys.

GameNameFame1925d ago (Edited 1925d ago )

Yes. All the poll that has taken place in multiple non gaming site and etc.

All those votes must be fanboys. According to you, world must be made of fanboys.

And all the fanboys are magically against Xbox.

Serg1925d ago


You claim Sony fans have taken over N4G, the internet, society and I assume you are not above suggesting they are the string-pullers for the governments of the world.

If you had used your tiny brain for even a second, you would realize why Sony has so many fans, and why you seem to see them everywhere. I won't bother explaining it to you, if you don't know by now, nothing short of a diamond drill is going to get this unbelievably obvious information through your thick skull. May I suggest laying off the tin foil hats for a while, it might help.

The_Con-Sept1925d ago

The reason why we hate the Xbox one now is due to the fact that the "cloud" is required to enjoy single player games. You want to know what I think about the cloud? It is another pay to play service for offline games.

Just like this vid expresses.

n4rc1925d ago

Preorder sales tell another story..

Being there is a healthy market for it at its current price.. So only 20% at $100 cheaper is waaay off..

So yea.. It points to a bias in the voters

The question should have been "would ps4 buyers switch if it were the same price"

Then I would agree with the results

inveni01925d ago

I would agree that the polls don't matter much, but the sources...they're so varied that each poll is starting to shake hands with the others, and I think we really might be seeing an accurate layout. I'm not saying it's 80/20, but it's certainly not 50/50, and that's a problem for two consoles launching within mere weeks of each other. I really think Microsoft is going to have to market to the casual masses and hope they'll shell out the dough. If Microsoft had made Halo 5 (or whatever it is) a launch title, they might not have to worry about their launch. But they didn't. And I think it'll give them a rocky start. I can get a PS4 and two games for what just the One will cost me. Or a PS4, extra controller and a game. Or the PS4, PSEYE and a game.

The value is just better.

"Just wait until the May 21st reveal event"
"Just wait until E3"
"Just wait until Gamescom"
"These polls don't matter. Just wait until launch"
"These pre-orders don't matter. Just wait until 6 months after launch".

It's like I'm in a PS3 thread circa 2006...

georgeenoob1925d ago (Edited 1925d ago )

Who's asking anyone to wait now? MS fans did say wait for E3, and look what happened, a dozen hardcore exclusives announced. Xbox One line-up looks stronger than Sony's hands down in both quantity and quality, so I don't understand who your comment is referring to.

M-M1925d ago


Too bad you're not a true Microsoft fan, just a N4G troll with nothing better to do.

Urusernamesucks1925d ago


That's pretty much what everyone in here is.

Skips1925d ago (Edited 1925d ago )

"Xbox One line-up looks stronger than Sony's hands down in both quantity and quality"

I don't think a bunch of 5-10 second trailers from mediocre/no name developers means quality kiddo. Which was what the majority of MS showed at their event was. lol

... And having less overall 1st party exclusives (20>15), less indie exclusives, and less F2P PC/Console exclusives don't mean quantity either. LMFAO!

Sony studios > MS studios

Nice try though. XD

MRMagoo1231925d ago

lmao at @ georgeenoob, there was no quality shown at e3 from MS they showed trailers and some games running on a pc, and if the games where not running on OP pcs (compared to xbone specs that is) why do the screen caps of titanfall look like 360 quality, what did they do to the game to make the textures and graphics go down hill since e3?.

MasterCornholio1925d ago


"MS fans did say wait for E3, and look what happened, a dozen hardcore exclusives announced."

Thats not the only thing that happened.

some will like ps4 like i do and will buy it and that's fine and others will buy xbox one and that's fine too

than there is a big group of gamers that will buy both

why do we need to hate on one to make our self feel good? i can tell you now both ps4 and xbox one will be quite successful and will go on to sell 60 plus million consoles.

Competition between sony and ms will mean better supported consoles so let's not hate on one. Because of sony MS had to take back a lot of their policies so competition is a good thing

I see comments like ps4 is 10 times more powerful or xbox one uses better cloud service who the heck cares? 95% of 3rd party games will look and play the same on both consoles so its only 1st and 2nd party studios that will actually take advantage of the real power of features of a system

why can't we get along as a gaming community? i bet you something if we take the fanboys out, 80% of gamers are neutral who will support the right product/content. But its the other 20% that shout the loudest so publishers think its the majority

fanboys waste so much time of gaming sites trolling when do they actually play some of the awesome games?

pedrof931925d ago (Edited 1925d ago )


jimmywolf1925d ago

while i agree i believe it pride in the brand, just like sport,cars,food.

everyone love too take pride in their choice. an no one want too hear your picking the second best, worst, overrated, etc, etc, you do what you must too defend it.

am guilty of this too, not just with ps4 but other things i enjoy in life.

showtimefolks1925d ago


pride is fine but some people take it over board and go too far

ps4 is the console to get. its got the most hype, most power, its the cheapest console and has the most exclusives and AAAA games. getting a xbox one and never getting a ps4 is basically a crime as a gamer lol. carrying over your achievements is dumb you will never be the top and people wont even care and you really don't want to see your hanahh Montana achievements on your game list lol. time to cut the ties to the xbox one because you have non legit reasons for getting one. you think its gonna be the social gaming network? no its not the ps4 will be the new social gaming nework everyones plays.

xbox one will be myspace left to crash and burn

I have my prefered option at the moment (PS4) but dam I hate these polls claiming to be important. They are as important and informative as the youtube comment section and people there misspell rapper with raper

The_Troll_Whisperer1926d ago (Edited 1926d ago )

Yea, i'm going to hate the 12 year olds coming from Xbox 360 over to PS4 and ruin multiplayer games. PSN is very quiet and I want it to stay that way instead of turning into PlayStation-12immature12yearol dhacker-Network.

EDIT: I know, you can mute them, but they get their whole party to report me for ''hacking''. That's how I got my console banned, and left for Steam and PSN.

-Mika-1926d ago

You sound so ignorant. Im pretty sure the same would be happening if psn was more robust like XBL and if sony had a community team to deal with psn users. Second, you must have been hacking or said something extremely inappropriate in order to get banned. MS doesn't just ban random users.

If sony adds a report a user feature in the PS4. Trust me, there would be alot more bans happening.

gamertk4211926d ago

People on psn barely talk.

Starbucks_Fan1926d ago

You probably did something pretty bad to get banned. Me, and 4 other friends have trolled on Nascar Inside Line by wrecking people for the past several months. I'm sure the each of us have been reported by 30+ people. None of us have been suspended or banned.

Mystogan1926d ago

"PSN is very quiet"

That must be pretty boring.

IMightBeRetarded1925d ago

Okay Mika, you've had your turn to talk today, go back under your bridge now.

InTheLab1925d ago

PSN hasn't been quite since before the first price drop. Once it hit $399, the flood gates opened and all the trolls showed up. Prior to that, things were nice and peaceful with friendly folks in MAG or Resistance...

So I figure since the thing is $399 out the gate, all the riff raff will be present after a few months...

KillrateOmega1926d ago (Edited 1926d ago )

Eh, they're a fairly effective way to guage current hype and consumer interest.

Yes, they may likely be dominated fanboys from both sides, but those same fanboys are nearly guaranteed to be early adopters (alongside anyone with a great passion for gaming; i.e., core gamers).

Fanboys and early adopters also function nicely as free and willing outlets of propaganda via Twitter, Facebook, and/or general word of mouth. When casuals start to decide on their purchases, a big factor in making their decision will be which console more of their friends are on. If all of their gaming friends are on one console, they'll likely choose that console.

Mystogan1926d ago

Exactly lol, Why do I never know about these polls until the final results are already in?

-Mika-1926d ago

Just wait for the official NPD list a few months after launch. This poll is stupid.

cyguration1926d ago

So what happens when the pre-order lists, the polls and the consumer interest outlets all point toward massive sales for the PS4? What do we point to and blame at that point?

BlackTar1871926d ago

Mika you're going to break down and cry if ps4 continues its forecasted dominance over the xbox one.

Starbucks_Fan1926d ago (Edited 1926d ago )

She'll just continue talking s*** about the Wii U lol

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1926d ago

Will Sony even release NPD numbers? They haven't for a while now. They keep getting rocked by MS month after month, year after year. Even the 360 took off over the Wii finally now in the USA.


Smoovekid1926d ago (Edited 1926d ago )

PS3 has been outselling the Xbox worldwide for a while now. The USA is NOT the only country in the world.

_FantasmA_1926d ago

Lay down the meth pipe, get off your cousin, and step out of your trailer.

PSN_ZeroOnyx1926d ago

PS4 has outsold 360, just as PS2 outsold xbox. Get your facts right my friend.

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1925d ago (Edited 1925d ago )

@smoovekid... I didn't say it was the World. I'm responding to Mikas post about NPD numbers. How did you not get that?

And also guess what? Let's all have pop quiz. What Nation and sales area is the biggest selling place on this World?

I'll give you a hint... initials are U, S and A.

I'll take owning the biggest market in the World any day. Ya... World Wide is better... but that World Wide is made of the biggest market on the planet. It's good to be the most popular in the best place in the world for your stuff to sell and be hot/popular.

@PSN_ZeroOnyx... you're telling me to get my facts straight when you just wrote above and told us all that the PS4 has outsold the 360? "Get your facts right my friend." ;)

Now if Sony could just get people to buy games. They get smoked by Xbox even with the (now) larger install base.

ps3_pwns1925d ago

you do know the ps4 will have way more consoles available like 3 and 4 times as much as xbox one. not only this the ps4 will release first. on top of that the ps4 is cheaper and has free games you can play day one right out of the box. everyones first next gen console should be a ps4 if they like online multiplayer or an alive user base gaming community.

think of myspace when facebook came along it got destroyed. facebook had a slow start aka ps3 but with the ps4 its nail in the coffin time everyone.gif is gonna be gaming on the ps4. you have to be an idiot to get an xbox one for any reason at this point.

Not surprising at all.

kingdip901926d ago

We all know the xbox is going to sell to more than 20% of the fan base. I'm no xbox fan but I'm not deluded either. These polls may be acurate in that ps4 seems more popular right now but I don't think they are accurate by how much. However it would be kinda chuckle worthy if it was as bad as polls are saying for xbox one

dedicatedtogamers1926d ago

20% of the market wouldn't be that much of a decrease for the Xbox brand.

Assuming the gaming market does not increase AT ALL, 20% of the current market is still about 60 million units sold.

The Xbox 360 currently holds about 29% of the market. Not that much of a decrease, as you can see.

ps3_pwns1925d ago

keep thinking that but is it smart to get a console that's gonna be selling far less? consoles that sale less and don't have the hype will not have tons of people to play against online and xbox one doesn't have headset either. its basically gonna be wii u online lol. with 1-2 thousand people maximum playing games online lol.

ps4 is the way to go. get that first as its the smart choice. get the xbox one after the price drop or after people start buying it. which will be after a price drop and 6+ months down the line. you don't want the wii u situation twice do you?

kingdip901925d ago

Personally I kinda do want the wii u situatuin with the xbox one. It would be grand if all the devs work with just the ps4 architecture in mind that would mean games wouldn't need to be scaled back for xbox one. But thats a dream, like I said xbone has to many blind fans for that to ever be a reality. Its going to sell many systems however much you or I may not want it to
