Impressive, based on Vgchartz numbers 58% of global XO sales are in the US, versus 30% for PS4.

I better understand why MS PR is so US centric in its content and form. They will really need to step up their game in this area if they want to expend beyond homeland for next gen.

CuVe28d ago

Its not that MS is US centric... Simply people outside US actually think before mindlessly buying xbox just because it is a 'Murican product. Here in Europe actually PS destroys xbox about 5:1 while there are way more xbox price drops.

rainslacker27d ago

I think their US centric marketing is probably why they have a larger number of sales in the US rather than other regions. Marketing is often directly related to sales.

YodaCracker28d ago

Really close race! Neither will catch up to the Xbox 360’s US sales though. That console was a sales beast.

ArmyVetGamer28d ago

Kind of pointless... i want to see WW

This all will change next gen, because teraflops and services will make the diference. Right? Because millions will give up on the games they got, on the amazing experiences they had and sell their PS4 to get a Xbox. It make total sense.

King_Noctis28d ago (Edited 28d ago )

Or you know, get both consoles? I know, stupid idea right? Why just play games when you can choose side and just be a fanboy?

waverider28d ago

I agree on getting two consoles, if you got the money to do that. But there are 3 on that market. And millions got two consoles. Millions are buying the switch.

Dovergamer28d ago (Edited 28d ago )

Who the fuck is dumb enough to pay for an expensive paperweight with no exclusives and one console? I prefer to invest money on one console that has it all. That was the PS4. The same will happen with the PS5. People wants more value for their money.

If I want portability then of course, I get a switch. If Microsoft gets good exclusives then I can see what's up. But obviously Microsoft doesn't have them. Their purpose is monetisation, services and their OS. Quality is not their priority.

“ Who the fuck is dumb enough to pay for an expensive paperweight with no exclusives and one console?”

Let say you don’t have a gaming PC, then how the hell do you play Microsoft’s games? On the PS4?

“ If Microsoft gets good exclusives then I can see what's up”

Have you even paid any attention to their recent announcements? Their recently released games? Their upcoming games?

Realms28d ago

Or MS can give non MS players are reason to own an xbox, the Switch is outselling the xbox one, S and X. So I don't understand why xbox fanboys are so hyped for the xseries being the most powerful console since the xbox x already is and that didn't change MS's position.

King_Noctis27d ago (Edited 27d ago )

“ Or MS can give non MS players are reason to own an xbox”

Or they can give those players the reason to join their ecosystem (buying Windows or Xbox) and subscribe to their service, which actually (gasp!) make them profits.

Also, aren’t you happy that MS doesn’t give you any reason to purchase their console? You can then prance around happily when the PS5 eventually outsell the Xbox SX.

@Realms

The Switch is also outselling the PS4, what's your point?

At least xbox gamers are not forced to buy the next console to carry on playing their favourite IP.

"Let say if you don’t have a gaming PC, then how the hell do you play Microsoft’s games? On the PS4?"

Is there any game worth wasting money that is better than Horizon Zero, Spider Man, God of War IV or Bloodborne?

"Have you even paid any attention to their recent announcements? Their recently released games? Their upcoming games?"

While there IS NO EXCLUSIVE GAME announced by Microsoft I'll continue waiting for real exclusives like The Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima.

Sorry but MS doesn't have ANY good game that competes against the PS4 exclusives. Besides, it is better to have a PC than any XBOX. Enjoy monetisation, EA and GAAS. Good luck with that.

King_Noctis27d ago

“ Is there any game worth wasting money that is better than Horizon Zero, Spider Man, God of War IV or Bloodborne? ”

So you are listing PS4 games? I’m sorry but weren’t we talking about next gen?

“ Besides, it is better to have a PC than any XBOX.”

Welcome to MS ecosystem. MS thanks you.

“ Enjoy monetisation, EA and GAAS.”

What the heck do EA have anything to do with this?

Dovergamer27d ago (Edited 27d ago )

Noctis, please troll elsewhere with these dumb comments.

"So you are listing PS4 games? I’m sorry but weren’t we talking about next gen?"

Oh yes, something that MS doesn't have? Of course, of course.

"Welcome to MS ecosystem. MS thanks you."

Then why do we need an XSX when PC suffice?

"What the heck do EA have anything to do with this?"

Subscriptions? Same policy MS has?

"Or they can give those players the reason to join their ecosystem (buying Windows or Xbox) and subscribe to their service, which actually (gasp!) make them profits."

This comment makes zero sense. We as players are interested on the best console. We don't give a fuck who make more money. Do you know why we come here? To see which console brings the better games. You see, people wants to have the best platform to play exclusives games. The console was PS4, and now will be PS5.

See why PS4 sold more than XBONE. See why the PS5 will sell more than XSX?

Simple.

DJStotty27d ago

@Dovergamer

Isn't EA Access now available on PS4?

King_Noctis27d ago (Edited 27d ago )

“ Oh yes, something that MS doesn't have? Of course, of course.“

Uhh Hellblade 2? Halo Infinite? Weren’t both game announced for the Xbox SX?

“ Then why do we need an XSX when PC suffice?”

A choice for those who don’t want to fiddle around with PC and all its component? For those who want an MS console to put in their living room? If it is not for you then it shouldn’t exist?

“ Subscriptions? Same policy MS has? ”

You mean like the one that Sony has as well?

“ We don't give a fuck who make more money.”

Now we suddenly don’t? Could have fooled me. Also, before calling someone else a troll, try looking in the mirror.

Dovergamer27d ago (Edited 27d ago )

You can't simply shut up, I know. The more you talk the more you show everybody your lack of knowledge.

Uhh Hellblade 2? Halo Infinite? Weren’t both game announced for the Xbox SX?

Hellblade 2 is a timed exclusive, it will be available on PC. Halo infinite is a joke. It was since 343 got Halo series.

"A choice for those who don’t want to fiddle around with PC and all its component? For those who want an MS console to put in their living room? If it is not for you then it shouldn’t exist?"

This is another trolling attempt. You can purchase a build ready made PC. Besides, PC doesn't have better exclusives than PS4 right now. That is a fact.

"Now we suddenly don’t? Could have fooled me. Also, before calling someone else a troll, try looking in the mirror."

And here we have another trolling attempt as expected. The thread is about the sales of the PS4 and the XBONE CONSOLES. The reason why PS4 sold more was and still is for the exclusives. It's about sales on the consoles not on the profits of an enterprise. The graphic displayed in video game chart shows the numbers of these consoles not the financial state or the fiscal year of Sony or Microsoft. We are not discussing here who gains more money. If we talk about money then Microsoft is doing money with their products but the idea is not about money, now is it? How about if we speak more about quality and the games we get? With Microsoft you are getting NO QUALITY whatsoever. If slow people wants low quality and pay less for more then they can purchase Microsoft products, no one stops them.

DJStotty27d ago

"Hellblade 2 is a timed exclusive"

When is the release date for PS4/5?

"Hellblade 2 is a Microsoft 1st party exclusive"

fixed

DJStotty27d ago

PC or xbox, Microsoft gets a game sale.

Profit is made on software, not hardware

anyone knows this

Dovergamer27d ago (Edited 27d ago )

But Noctis doesn't apparently. lol.

King_Noctis27d ago (Edited 27d ago )

“ Hellblade 2 is a timed exclusive, it will be available on PC. Halo infinite is a joke. It was since 343 got Halo series.“

Both will be released on PC day one. Halo Infinite is a joke? Based on what? Your crystal ball?

“This is another trolling attempt. You can purchase a build ready made PC. Besides, PC doesn't have better exclusives than PS4 right now. That is a fact.”

Do you know how much a “build ready” PC costs compared to a custom build one? And why does PC need to have better exclusive in order to verify its existence? And do you know how much a 12 teraflops PC costs compared to an Xbox SX?

“ With Microsoft you are getting NO QUALITY whatsoever.”

Forza Horizon 4? Gears 5? Ori and the Blind Forest? Cuphead? We all know they haven’t produced lot of good games. But they had acquired multiple studios to accomplish that. Making games need time. So what else do you want them to do?
