B-B-But the beast known as Scorpio would close the gap!

Problem is you don' t have a gap, you have an abyss!

The most interesting thing here is that they imply that over half of all Xboxes are sold in the USA but only about a Third of Playstation and yet it's still leading in the states.

Sony will remain on top next gen and this shows why. The biggest overarching factor for PS4s success is its appeal worldwide.

How does Microsoft increase interest outside of the United States?

mcstorm32d ago

Eonjay microsoft are aware of this and they know outside of the USA and UK it will be hard to catch up to Sony and there best bet is the pc. This is why we now see play anywhere games and gamepass on pc.

Microsoft know they don't have to sell the most consoles to make £ they need to offer the games across both platforms if they do that they don't have to look at both Sony or Nintendo.

@mcstorm

I think Microsoft makes more money from selling more consoles than selling their games on windows. They get 3rd party fees on games and xbox live subs. Games like COD, Madden, 2k nba sell millions every year, but has any game MS released on pc recently sold even 1 million? Pc gamers actually petitioned to have games not be released on GFLW ( I don't think they ever did for any other service)

I thought the PS4 was at like 90 million units sold, wasn't there an article stating the it was close to 100million?

blaziliuz1232d ago

90M worldwide, this is just tracking US sales

Eonjay32d ago

But the title of the article clearly says 'US'...

Longadog32d ago (Edited 32d ago )

Preposterous!! are the people at vgchartz even reading other articles on how the xbox has already made so much magical accomplishments and is supposedly in a comeback for domination?

such uneducated worms

A 4 million lead isn't that much. Both consoles are doing kind of poorly tbh.

S2Killinit32d ago (Edited 32d ago )

Not that i dont agree with you but, Last generation there were doom and gloom articles for PlayStation because it was 2 million behind WORLDWIDE, and the 2 million units were due to a 1 year headstart of xbox. 2 million was a big deal back then.

gamingunited32d ago

This exactly.

In aligned sales 360 never once was ahead of PS3.

rlow132d ago

So the fact that Sony launched the ps3 at a huge price point and didn't have a lot of games at the start had nothing to do with it? Xbox 360 launched and was successful because it innovated and brought new ideas to the console market. Fanboys always want to point to the one year head start. When it was so much more than that.

S2Killinit32d ago (Edited 32d ago )

@rlow1
No, when PS3 was launched 360 had sold exactely 2 million units in the prior year. Despite PS3 outselling the 360 in most months MS would make up some of the difference during holiday months by effective use of bundles. So yeah the difference was the same as when PS3 entered the fray, until PS3 slowly pulled ahead.

Also, not that i disagree but which innovation are you refering to? Live? Also, im not even getting into the affect of the RROD.

I think approaching 30 mil in the US is pretty good after 5 years if you take into account that it doesn't have a new movie format pushing it and that it was released as we were coming out of a depression and along side competition. Comparing it to say PS2, where that machine released during a better economy , directly after a generation Sony utterly dominated and featuring a DVD DRIVE (many did buy it for that feature) it is going pretty well to have sold half... And it's still going . I would bet we will see 40 mil sold in the US by the end of the gen .

W4rfight3r31d ago (Edited 31d ago )

Hmm, I'm no surprised. I'm an Xbox owner in Lebanon. Which is a country where people barely know it. Everyone refers to consoles as Playstation xD
Nobody even buys em for exclusives. They only buy the console for fifa or cod thinking it's the only console in the country. I'm not surprised tbh cause ps2 has been their childhood.

galmi31d ago

Same here in nigeria, its ps4 for Fifa and COD(not the new one), very very few play games like persona, spiderman and the likes.
