Poll: is Sony going to blow out X1 this gen? (78 votes)

Yes 54%
No 44%

It seems so. Especially because it's cheaper than X1 and has better hardware. I can see it selling twice as much and that constitutes a blowout in my mind.

Wait at least one full year before making such bold statements - everything you have said is based on less than two months of sales.

And at the end of the day we are still talking about the two fastest selling consoles of all time - over seven million units sold worldwide in less than two months? Those are spectacular numbers.

GameSpot had become one massive j-pot from the huge cow circle jerk going on.

The 360 was gonna blow out the PS3 last gen, but look what happened... Don't count your eggs, before they hatch.

Will Sony win the generation, there is a good chance. Will the "Blow Out" the Xbox One. No. It really depends on what you consider a blow out. I (and most people on there) wouldn't say that Android has "blown out" IOS even though 6x more Android smartphones shipped worldwide in 2013. I would be extremely surprised if Sony even manages a 1.5x shipments with the PS4 over the Xbox One, but even if they do that is in no way a "blow-out"

When Xbox 360 sold 3 years more than PS3 then Sony fanboys said that sale not matters.

Now when PS4 outselling Xbox One just few month(out of 10 years) now Sony fanboys says SALE ONLY MATTERS.

Exactly. It's absolutely ridiculous to say PS4 is going to beat XB1.

There is a long way to go this gen!

Still a little too early to tell. Still, gotta say a lot about the supply issues and demand if they still have massive lines these days (yesterday bestbuys got new stock and lines were formed instantly)

they just need to bring out the games and I will be happy. Still hopin the order is somethin to be excited about. looks interesting from the trailer + what previews have said.

no, the ps3 was going to blow the 360 out of the water, but sony screwed up with the pricing and hardware. and took a little too long with some games. however, most of us knew the games were coming because sony actually has a first party.

  • Gears is dead
  • Halo keeps getting worse and worse
  • Forza is the COD/Madden of racers
  • Fable isn't worth mentioning anymore

They have some games in the works, sure. How many of these will be great and remain exclusive to the platform if they ever even were to begin with remains yet to be seen.

No. PS4 will do better, but both will be fine. Hopefully.

#15 Posted by j2zon2591 (2239 posts) -

No.

MS is too big and rich.

Not true. Everyone here said the PS3 was going to blow out the 360 even before specs were released. And the silliness continued even after the consoles dropped. History repeats itself...

You are right. I confess. I was the second gunman on the grassy knoll.

#25 Posted by shawn30 (4367 posts) -

No, not even. PS3 caught up when it hit a comparable price and had compelling software. MS will too. And MS will do fine overseas outside of Japan once they hit the right price and all features and the system are available. I'm not sure who will win, but I expect we will never see a double digit lead of one console over another this gen. The bigger question is will Sony as a company still be around. They have a mountain of debt that the PS4 can't erase. If they survive though and do well in Japan they will likely win the sales gen. I'm fine with that as MS will keep fighting harder for my money, so its all good. But anyone predicting a winner 2 months into the gen is beyond words stupid. To many things can and will change and things could happen that we don't see coming.

Sony will sell more because they havea better value for the consumer and have better merket penetration globally, but I don't think it will be a "blow-out". Regardless, many thought the 360 was going to blow out the PStriple.

You mean like MS does! Stating on E3 that their 360 was going to outsell the PS3. Like MS planning all that DRM crap & then they couldn't.

#28 Posted by hiphops_savior (7914 posts) -

It blows out and Sony still goes bankrupt because of its bleeding music and movie divisions.

#29 Posted by mems_1224 (47152 posts) -

It will sell a couple million more but it wont do as well as the PS2.

I really hope the 4 outdoes the 2, that would be another very good era for gamers.

#31 Posted by ni6htmare01 (955 posts) -

I think the PS4 is going to win, but the margin will not be like PS2 vs xbox, I think it'll be more like WII vs the 360 at the end of this Gen!

I dunno, I guess. Do you sleep with your PS3 at night?

I'm not talking about what people said. I'm specifically talking about the fact that the 360 was head for a good chunk of last-gen and Sony managed to up the ante, by lowering the price and actually putting some effort into PSN and the exclusives.

#34 Posted by AtariKidX (6278 posts) -

Yes........PS4 already blow out the XBOXone.

I say by about 30-40 million sold. 8 years, ps4 about 90-100 million, x1 50-60 million is my guess. WiiU 30-35 million

#37 Edited by juarbles (801 posts) -

Eh... I think you're not paying attention people because the PS4 destroyed the xbone since july of last year. Please focus now on making fun of xboners that still try to defend a failed product that was anti-gaming in the first place.
