"While many forecasts still give an edge to Sony/PS4 in North America sales, we continue to expect similar or even slightly higher sales of Xbox One by the end of the launch window," Sebastian told investors.

ps4 is launching in more than double the countries of xbone

is this so called 'analyst' on MICROSOFTS payroll? you have to wonder

The rest of the first party PS4 exclusives are announced, and analysts wisen up.

He must be on MS books.... Anyone whos says something fanboys disagree with must be...
Love the trolls calling out trolls.... All saintly and innocent.... Me included....

gaffyh3862d ago

It says he's going by eBay listings wtf, is that serious? It's not a big leap to get to his theory based on previous history of the 360, but eBay listings?!

Sitdown3862d ago

It does not matter how many countries you launch in, but how many consoles you have available to purchase... All reports have been that Sony is pushing out more units, so by default they should sale more...... They can't even keep up with demand.

NewAgeisHere3862d ago

Next year MS will be giving away free Xbones with every Windows cause they won't sell well...xD.

Halo is gonna do as good as it always does to tbh you wont see a difference halo fans are gonna buy halo plain and simple some new adopters sure but that's it.
Quantum Break from the people who brought us alan wake good game but was nothing spectacular so i wouldnt hail it just yet maybe when you see 5 minutes of gameplay.
Titanfall that might be your only argument here tbh unless it turns out to be bad only online games tend to have a ruff start remember simcity.

Now my question is whats happening next year again?:/

Jaqen_Hghar3862d ago

uh oh. A user hasn't SEEN Titanfall!

brometheos3862d ago

Next year is big! Infamous, The Order, Driveclub, possibly some unannounced games. Idk what's happening for the xbox aside from Titanfall though.

P0werVR3862d ago

Title a bit misleading. Analyst ment the by the end of the "launch window". Which makes sense when you consider Titanfall.

pyramidshead3862d ago

@hammad nailing it

OT: I'd be surprised if it did and props to MS if it does.

NukaCola3861d ago (Edited 3861d ago )

This is inaccurate as all hell. Even if the Xbone sells out, PS4 is launching in 2.5 times more countries with more than double preorders in every location to include normally Xbox dominated US and UK. Not saying Xbox One won't do well, but by common logic shows Sony has placed the PS4 in a very huge advantage point. On top of that the more expensive PS3 caught up and out sold the 360 by almost 2 million more units after the 360's major head start. With the early release in the US, higher specs, and more affordable price, I see only huge success coming with PS4 next month.

QuickdrawMcgraw3861d ago

What's the length of a launch window?

UltimateMaster3861d ago (Edited 3861d ago )

It's official, I'm never depending on any analyst to try to predict the future.
They clearly suck at it.

assdan3861d ago

I'm pretty sure the PS4 is doing better everywhere this analyst isn't very good.

DOMination-3861d ago

Sony might be shipping to more countries but it doesn't really count when its one whole console to Brazil and a whopping three to the UAE or wherever it was. In fact that is more pathetic spin than anything MS have ever done.

Army_of_Darkness3861d ago

I think that miley syrus breaking ball video fucxked him up.. . Like, who saw that coming? !

andrewsqual3861d ago

PS3 total global sales will leave 360 sales in the dirt even more, same for PS4 too for the rest of the consoles' lives.

Seriously though if anybody has any reasons as to why Xbone could ever catch up to sales on PS4 when the last console had a year headstart and was just a tad more popular than the Xbone you might say (lol), then please, tell us why.

Narutone663861d ago

Must be the successor of Pachter, always predicting the opposite.
