Whoever has more inventory to sell, in the long run PlayStation of course, but this holiday season is going to depend on inventory.

ZeroBlue241d ago

Obviously, they're releasing a new console, I don't see how this is even a question.

PS5.. Nintendo has nothing hot coming out this year

Don't be stupid. Nobody wants to buy pc parts as christmas presents.

Oh you ignorant boy!... I know it's strange news, but if you don't want to buy PC parts, you can purchase complete PC's (called desktops) or even compact PC's (called laptops). Do you live under a rock?

As for me, I wouldn't mind one bit a PC part (new graphics card) for my Christmas.

BrettAwesome41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

Ignorant? Boy? Nobody buys PC's as presents! A console is simple fun. It's a toy. It puts a smile on kids faces. Even grandma can manage to say "that new Playstation" down at the store. Buying a pc is boring. It's the kind of shit you associate with an office building or stupid brats with "monster energy" trucker caps. PC's are great. But nobody wants to buy you a new PC or an RTX3080 for christmas. It's the kind of shit you're expected to pay for with the money you made from your paper route

Pc is its own thing, not sure why PC gamers are so protective. Console gamers are only interested in gaming not the I am inadequate be have a monster pc to compensate.

Sorry to all the pc gamers who love gaming, and understand gaming on every system, but PC gamers who come in spouting there nonsense about superiority aren't gamers and are more interested in telling every one how dominant they are, when in reality not one single console gamer cares at all about how fast your pc is. We just like to game.

Sorry lelo. Brett is closer to being right than ignorant. Nobody buys pc's as gifts. Its not troll comment. Sometimes the pc crowd suffer from FOMO when their platform isn't factored in. Sorry guys, this is clearly about consoles

ZeroBlue241d ago (Edited 41d ago )

Lol, come on. I'm a PC gamer even, but you can't deny that consoles will do far better over the holidays.

Neonridr41d ago

@BrettAwesome - I mean do you only rely on your parents to buy you stuff? You never make purchases as "gifts" for yourself? Don't kid yourself, plenty of people will build custom computers using Black Friday prices or whatever. Buying a PC might be boring as you said, building one isn't.

The Wood41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

I think sales would be the barometer therfore implying parents buying gifts is somehow unrealistic or implying saddo's rely on parents makes little sense as a retort. Holiday season is the absolute best time for gifting and pc's rarely fall in the category of gifts if you're being honest especially in relation to consoles. What's so offensive about this notion that people have to start calling people names? Lol

Did you just assume xbox will not come on top? 😏

Godmars29041d ago (Edited 41d ago )

No one's going to "come out on top" this holiday season.

All of them are going to sell well - sell out product - because consumers are freaking consumers who mindlessly consumer.

What's going to matter - if it matters - is the post feeding-frenzy when actual worth and value can be determined. That very likely where MS more than Sony is going to fall short. Given the former's history of underperforming with 1st party.

CaptainObvious87841d ago

It's really telling how you don't mention who, but we all know exactly who you're talking about.

I guess thats what happens when they don't have a single exclusive launching with a console.

Neonridr41d ago

that's also what happens when you are a sad fanboy who worries so much about what others do..

TheScotsman41d ago

Spoken like a true fan boy neondir😂😂

TheScotsman41d ago

If xbox comes out on top with a new console with no games then it's a bad sign indeed for the games industry

Sitdown42d ago

Another much needed article courtesy of gamingbolt. It will come down to who can meet demand between Sony and Nintendo.

Zhipp41d ago

If we're mainly talking NPD then MS and Sony will be equal I think. People forget that Xbone performed comparably to ps4 during the launch weeks until its sales fell off a cliff. Enthusiasts with money on their hands will buy up all the launch stock for sure. It happens every gen.

That said, I feel that Nintendo is more positioned to meet demand for Switch this holiday than anyone, so I actually expect it to outsell both Ps5 and XsX everywhere. Sony will likely sell more hardware as a whole thanks to ps4 though.

CaptainHenry91641d ago

We know who will be at the bottom 😁

ClayRules201241d ago

😂They should be used to it by now. Being at the bottom isn’t any fun, but to them “They who shall NOT BE NAMED” are probably content being there. I mean, their certainly not hurting for cash🤦🏼‍♂️

The Wood41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

Hey don't be mean. Winning from behind is still something to brag about 😉

Julion071542d ago

Who cares, I jus want good games

RightFootGames41d ago

Yep, that's why it'll be PlayStation or Nintendo.

ClayRules201241d ago

Exactly. They both bring the games.
