"Sony dominance continues," GamesBeat writes. The PS4 has outsold the Xbox One and Wii U every month since October 2015.
Was there any doubt. It's long been a forgone conclusion, even Microsoft have all but admitted defeat. It'll be news when/if the XboxOne ever manages to outsell the PS4 in any given month.
Why buy an xbox 1s where there is another more powerful version (scorpio) coming out next year? You can say the same thing about Sony but they have yet to officailly announce the specs. Thats why they (sony execs) were wondering why Ms announced scorpio so soon.
Congrats Sony !
Yeah, the thing about it. I know alot of xbox gamers are psyched about the "scorpion", but if you look at how Microsoft has shifted all 1st party games on the platform to be PC compatible it's like they are preparing for a close down of the studio if this last effort doesn't work. I mean it's really ironic how Microsoft was looking to sell and then all of a sudden they stopped talking about it. However the Xbox One is doing well in regards to the brand itself, but the money lost from selling the xbox one at it's current price isn't good. I see them for 299 now and it came out at 499. They never changed any internals and were making about 40-80 bucks a console. Now they are selling at a loss. The only thing keeping the division alive is it's software and they don't have much of that. When I say that I mean, their first party games are on PC there's no need to own an xbox if you are a PC gamer. Anyways like every gen i'm glad i'm team playstation been so since 94' never bought another console, never needed to
that's why they are going all out with scorpio, that is their last hope
Maybe before the end of the year. Still waiting for 32 weeks in a row. It'll be interesting to see how the trade in program works next year though.
Way to go Sony .
I thought the price drop to $280 would make the Xbox One take June, but looks like the PS4 was able to maintain it's lead even at a $350 price point.
They announced a slim, 4k compatible console. Of course they were never gonna sell more in June.
@Immorals Xbox wasn't going sell more than PS4 in June even if they didn't announce any consoles. How do I know? Because it didn't have an exclusive release in June. And Its been over a year since Xbox outsold PS4 on NPD when they didn't have an exclusive release that month.
@uptown soul Over a year? Since when did October come before June?
@Immorals they've dropped the price before a slim or Scorpio was known, didn't help then either
@Kribwalker -- Please re-read my comment and then read below... There are months where Xbox releases retail exclusives & there are months where Xbox does not release retail exclusives. In October 2015 Xbox won NPD & in that same month they released an exclusive (Halo 5). Now can you please name the last month when Xbox won NPD when they DID NOT release a retail exclusive.......Hint: Its been over a year **BONUS TRIVIA**...There have only been 3 months this generation where Xbox One did NOT release a retail exclusive BUT still won NPD...Which months were they???
that time of the month already?
Not even Microsoft'a temporary XO price cut could elevate it to the lead
I've never seen an XBOX One without a price cut. I bought the launch system for $500 and last week GS wouldn't give me $90 for it? As P'd off as I am I can't deny that that's how the market interprets XBOX. XBOX Slim might win a month due to the preorders but then it'll be right back to the PS4 dominating. I don't see how scorpio running the same tired games ie Gears, Halo, and Forza in 4K is going to change anything either.
Playstation has the best exclusives!!!
That`s your opinion. I don`t see anything they have that makes me want to go out and get a PS4. LOL with the disagrees, Whats next i get marked for being inappropriate for not liking PS4 exclusives.
Then get your eyes checked.
@Hold_it I'm sorry to say this, but you are completely way off. People disagree with you not because they are fanboy. It's because you are way off with your opinion.
Hold it the concept behind agree and disagree is that you hit agree if you agree and hit disagree if you don't the concept isn't hard to get. Btw your comment history is pretty toxic yourself
Each to their own but personally I don't see anything on the XB1 lineup that even remotely makes me want to purchase an XBox (be it XB1 or the S). At one stage I was interested in Scalebound but the videos of the gameplay and the voice acting has really put me off. As for "Sea of Thieves" I am fairly lukewarm with that. The so-called big three (Halo, Gears of War and Forza) I have no interest whatsoever. Exclusives for your preferred platform are nice and I do have three out of fifteen so far for my PS4 with the majority of games being multiplatform.
Everyone knows you aren't interested in a PS4 because of brand loyalty.
@Hold_it Pot, kettle? You understand where I am going with this?
Well, statistically its fact seeing that the PS4 exclusives currently average much much higher than any of the few Xbox1 exclusive there are.
'That`s your opinion. .. LOL with the disagrees, Whats next ...' Umm disagrees are opinions too you know. They just mean people have a different opinion than yours. That doesn't mean people like me who clicked the DISAGREE button are some sort of fanatics who can't stand a different opinion. It's actually more of a fanatic stance to not stand disagreement.
Then you seriously can't be a gamer I don't have and X1 but even I was considering it prior to the PC releases simply for 2 games TITANFALL and HALO. But seeing as though MS just made their console redundant and fucked all their fans Im not interested. Just wait for PC release now.
But that's YOUR opinion. Maybe you're getting disagrees because you're treating it as fact. There's plenty to play on the PS4. Sorry.
it's a shame you feel that way. Makes me question why anyone even has an xbox at this point
