@tymeservesfate:

If the ps4 outsells the Xbone for a month but by a smaller margin than a previous month, that is not closing the gap for the Xbone. In order to close the gap, the Xbone would have to sell MORE than the ps4 for a month to put a dent in the ps4's lead. Xbone isn't closing any gap, ps4 is widening it.

Think of it this way. Let's say the Seahawks are playing the Broncos and the Seahawks score 21 points in the first quarter while the Broncos score 0. Then in the second quarter, the Seahawks score 14 and the Broncos score 7. Are the Broncos closing the gap? No. The broncos got out scored by a smaller margin in the 2nd, but the Seahawks still increased their lead regardless.

not only that...think about this...O_o

no seriously though....i see ur point. this thread is in no way saying the XB1 is going to pass the ps4 soon, or whatever. its just saying thats it's gaining momentum, or has some. nobody knows how long it will last or that it will pass the ps4 down the line. its just saying things are looking good for the system right now. period...that's it.

this new generation is only, what, 4 or 5 months old...it hasnt even been half a year yet. so anyone saying MS and the XB1 are out of this race are being absurd. still plenty of time in this, with plenty of incentive. the ps3 had a 6 hundred dollar pricetag on it and no really good games on it FOR YEARS, and it made a hellavah comeback. the XB1 is a hundred dollars less than that and is releasing high profile games as well, has a goods library of games already. so too count MS out of this so early isnt a good look, unless ur just trolling.

it's very possible for them to come back and surpass the ps4 eventually. cows love to say how Sony has the world backing them and MS only has the U.S. and the UK etc...but the ps3 had to catch up to the XB360 in sales. think about that. all of XB360's werent just in the U.S. and UK...it sold all over, and Sony had to gradually break back into those regions to catch up. so...that means Xbox has world appeal too. everyone brought that system, and still are buying it. not just the U.S and UK. MS held Sony back for 8 years while selling like crap in FN Japan, lol. so yea...it IS very possible for MS/XB1 to make up this ground. and with this boost in sales happening so early in the gen, its seeming even more possible. because i wasnt expecting any momentum for the XB1 until after E3, or a few months more.

What numbers are you basing this on? Numbers from your ass? Post numbers or shut up. You can't say the Xbone is gaining momentum compared to the PS4 without posting any numbers.

They are really not closing in on the PS4. They'll get a boost from Titanfall, but even in NA the PS4 is continually outselling the Xbox One. That extra $100 is killer and a single, multiplayer only title isn't enough to convince people that price difference is worth it.

That's why nearly every store I go in has xbox ones sitting on the shelf and no ps4's.

Finally was in bestbuy last week when they had 2 on the shelf. I grabbed one and 10 minutes later a lady got the other one.

But yeah titanfall will give them a nice boost for a short period of time. But I have a feeling this games popularity will burn out fast.

But on amazon titanfall is number 7 on the best sellers list with spots 1 being ps4 and 2-6 being playstation related and quite a few Microsoft products have dropped http://www.amazon.com/best-sellers-video-games/zgbs/videogames/ref=sv_vg_11

there's also this. it's not totally getting slaughter in the UK at least. that's one positive at positive for them. but like you two said, there's a lot counting against them, and it all remains to be seen.

PS4 sales went up 72% the same week. Guess Titanshit ain't all that.

lmao. Still mad Titanfall's not on the POS4?

It doesn't surprise me the least. The last time Sony had exclusive rights to "a great shooter ala halo killer" was with Haze, and we all know what Haze is...

Why would I be mad about a multiplatform EA game not being on the Quad?

Haze always sucked, by the way. Same with Lair.

A multiplat that's not on POS4; so you're free to stfu, lintnuts.

Sony ought to cough up another milked franchise for you udder-ticklers, because it's obvious that wobbly, slanted piece of shit is making you guys super asshurt. Bro, you're begging for Astroglide.

LMFAO. had some laughs in this thread. Thanks guys

@kuu2: You absolutely correct, hence why the PS4 is the currently selling more.

#112 Posted by PS4TrumpsXbox1 (1070 posts) -

6 million vs 4 million sold isn't really "closing in".... The boost in sales that xbox one will/is getting cuz of titanfall (saw there was a 96 percent increase of xone sales in UK since titanfall launched) will probably be around the same as boost in sales with infamous (infamous bundle selling more than titanfall bundle on gamestop could be a good sign of this) March npd numbers will really tell if MS is really "closing in"

#113 Edited by hoosier7 (3780 posts) -

Lol funny spin, it's only closing in on the 6m number that Sony left behind months ago, the PS4 is still comfortably outselling the X1 so the gap is only widening.

When one of the X1's biggest releases can't push sales over the PS4 you know there's trouble.

It's also funny that people didn't believe the supply constraint stuff last month but we've just seen a 74% increase in PS4 sales here because they got some stock in. And it's even selling out again already, Amazon won't have the base unit again till April.

months ago? Sony announced the 6 million sold on the 4th day of THIS month. and MS announced their 3.9 sold before them even...meaning it had even more time to sell before Sony announced their 6 million..soooo. but yea, i gotta take the rest of ur post as bullshit after noticing that lil blunder there bud, sorry.

So what exactly is the total of Xbox One sells globally? Or is SW gonna pretend it's still at 3.6 million or so?

They would have PR'd by now if they'd hit 4mil.

Like Sony did with the PS3. X1 is going to catch up to POS4 in America so get ready for that Cow turds!

NA is home turf so they technically shouldn't need to be catching up. But yes MS is certainly playing catch up on most fronts.

You're really not that bright are you? You say Xbone is catching up but PS4 still outsold the Xbone for Jan and Feb NPD. Do you have a brain son? How can Xbone be catching up when it's getting outsold every month? Do you not realize that every time PS4 outsells the Xbone it's adding to the lead? So much fail in your posts, I feel sorry for your math teacher.

It's going to be neck and neck, everyone knows this. Now if Xbox One was released with the DRM model, the console war would of been over before it even started.

#118 Edited by slimdogmilionar (472 posts) -

PS4 released in 4 times as many places and only 2 mill ahead of xbox. So it really only seems like its selling better because it's available in more countries, if you do the math xbox is averaging more sales.

If Xflop outsells the PS4 worldwide for a single month this entire generation I will be shocked. The gap is never going to stop increasing...it is only a matter of how much.

To any lemming who wishes to answer...how can the gap ever close when Xflop is outsold every single week worldwide? It is impossible.

You idiots keep forgetting that XB1 isnt World Wide yet like the PS4 is. 4 million in 13 countries in 3.5 months is impressive. Let's see what happens when they launch in the other 30 countries. XB1 is no where close to a flop or a failure at this point. Sales just doubles in U.K. and we don't know what it did her in the U.S. after TF launch. It will really depend on the software if the XB1 outsells the PS4 worldwide for a month. Must have games can push a lot more systems off retail shelves. TF is already proof of that.

they're also forgetting the ps3 caught up, somewhat, to the XB360 while it was on a 20-30 month span of outselling ps3 on the NPD. but lets ignore that even though the XB1 is a hundred dollars less than the ps3 was, and actually has decent games in its first year lol smh.

#121 Posted by tormentos (17070 posts) -

thats not what sheens said last gen, They claimed that as long as the ps3 sold at its rate it would outsell the 360 it took an entire generation+ but they eventually did.

oh look a sheen that last generation said Indie devs and psn games didn't count....now they all of a sudden do.

That was because the PS3 was selling better in Japan and EU,the xbox one isn't selling better any where sheen..

Oh look one of the buffoons who use to hype live indie games and trow them on cows face now pretend they don't matter,meanwhile Minecratf is more played on xbox live on xbox 360 than Halo 4 is..hahahahaa

Oh and you can look for me downplaying indies dude for me a game is a game.

You are the one forgetting that the xbox one doesn't sell outside US period..

I have tell you this and other people to like 100 times,don't you think that MS would release not and catch sony if they knew those countries left out would make a difference.?

Please man sony sold 1 million in US in 24 hours MS need 13 countries to do that so yeah let it go,those countries will add little,hell in fact MS has 2.2 million units sold in US and like 1.3 in the other countries than it is,now do the math..

That 108,333 consoles per country outside US,how many times does 108 fit on 2.2 millions,yeah that is how big the US market is for MS compare to other countries,it is sad that refuse to admit this and keep playing the less countries card even when the PS4 with 1 country sold what MS sold in 13.

Oh and is not at 4 million please link me to that info...

You claim to much sh** that you never back up,did you know the PS4 is already at 8 millions.?

Please TF launched 1 week ago and we still have no numbers,apparently sales are not that good..

During the final quarter of 2013, 3.9 million Xbox One consoles and 3.5 million Xbox 360 consoles were sold in to retailers,

http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/01/23/39-million-xbox-one-consoles-shipped-in-2013

They sold to RETAILERS that = shipped not sold to costumers.

Sony sold 6 million to consumers.

They ship by December 28 3.9 million units,from those 900k went unsold sitting on shelves on stores,on January they sold 200k world wide and on February 350k (with luck) world wide so they sold at the end of February 3.55 at best not 3.9,hell if they had 4 millions you would know it by now,and they would be hyping it,hell alone side Titanfall so call fantastic sales,which 1 week have pass and we know nothing about..

Microsoft said its new videogame "Halo: Reach" had racked up $200 million in global sales on its launch day, building strong momentum for the November debut of the Xbox 360 maker's new gaming system.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2010/09/16/us-microsoft-sales-idUSTRE68F0AC20100916

So that you get the idea Halo reach sold 200 millions in day 1,it was release on september 15 and by september 16 MS was saying how great sales were,it has pas 1 week and we don't know numbers for Titanfall,so either MS can't track the market any more,or the sales are not very good.

Yeah that will be truth when you prove to me that the market outside US gives a fu** about the xbox brand like they do for the PS4,even UK is PS4 land again.

The excuse of more countries mean little the xbox one is been outsold in the 13 markets that it is selling,so yeah it could be 50 and they would still be outsold and MS know this.

The PS3 catch the 360 because Japan and EU were won by SONY,while MS only won US,yeah i say only US be cause even that the xbox 360 won UK,it loss EU UK is part of EU so is like saying the PS3 won in New York but loss on the other 49 states..

To be able to catch some one running in front of you,you need to go faster even if it is by a small margin so that latter on you can catch,but if you are running slower you can run 100 years you will not catch the person running in fronts of you,and right on this moment the xbox one is trailing the PS4,so yeah no catching,all the contrary the gap grew in February.

What Sony fanboys don't want to acknowledge is the PS3 came back after the Xbox 360 had a gigantic lead on it. The gen is long and anything can happen. If Titanfall is moving systems, wait till the next Halo and Gears comes out, wait till a price drop happens, wait till the non-fanboy PS4 owners buy a second console, etc. The XBO is far from out of the fight.

Your stance is not based on reality or facts, it's based on your hopes and dreams that's why I find it stupid. You can't make a thread and claim the Xbone is catching up while the opposite is actually happening. All the evidence and numbers out there points to the gap widening yet you make a thread saying the opposite. Damn, you're a dumbass.

Xbone is not the PS3 though. It's getting outsold in every territory meanwhile PS3 had Japan and mainland Europe to fall back on. Xbone is a joke in Japan and mainland Europe is Sony land.

my god ur angry...i explained my stance on this more than a few times in this thread. not sure how you keep missing it picture book. i mean, the original post you quoted explains my outlook on the situation fully and you're still spouting some off base nonsense. here, i''ll even quote it for you again to read.

better? you really need to calm down a bit friend so you can maybe understand whats actually being said in here.

Your stance is not based on reality or facts, it's based on your hopes and dreams that's why I find it stupid. You can't make a thread and claim the Xbone is catching up while the opposite is actually happening. All the evidence and numbers out there points to the gap widening yet you make a thread saying the opposite. Damn, you're a dumbass.

i mentioned earlier in the thread that its a speculative article i linked picture book...please fam, calm. so angry...there there...there there...-pats huge forehead-...there there...

So this is what lems have been reduced to these days, making speculative threads not based on reality at all. Desperate times call for desperate measures I guess. It seems being in last place really destroyed you guys' moral lol.

Do any of the lems really believe the X1 can outsell the PS4? Guys, it wont happen. Sony has the world wide popularity. Just play your console and enjoy. Remember lems, sheep never petitioned a dev to keep a game exclusive to Xbox or Wii. They are sad, scared people, those Cows.

If what you're saying is they just need to drop the price this early in this gen...then that's a troubling predicament for MSFT.

PS4 released in 4 times as many places and only 2 mill ahead of xbox. So it really only seems like its selling better because it's available in more countries, if you do the math xbox is averaging more sales.

Yeah that will be truth when you prove to me that the market outside US gives a fu** about the xbox brand like they do for the PS4,even UK is PS4 land again.

The excuse of more countries mean little the xbox one is been outsold in the 13 markets that it is selling,so yeah it could be 50 and they would still be outsold and MS know this.

I'm not saying it's completely true but its a valid argument let's crunch the numbers xbox at 3.6 mil in 13 territories averages out to about 277,000 consoles sold per territory, PS4 at 6 mil in 48 countries averages out to exactly 125,000 per territory. If xbox continued to sell at that same rate in 48 territories it would be about 13,296,000 in 48 territories, this is like 3rd grade math. This is like you say though given the fact that people actually care about the xbox, I can't prove they can just like you can't prove they can't. I was just throwing my thoughts out there.

And by the time PS3 caught up to xbox last gen the race was over, it wasn't a big deal because everyone was paying attention to the new consoles.

Microsoft is suddenly going to gain appeal in Europe or start completely dominating the US again? If not that ass is getting stopped, which is happening right now.

There is one problem with your argument..

You can't split sales by countries..

Hell your math give you 277,000 consoles per territory now let go by real numbers,US has 2.2 million xbox one sold,the other 1.4 million are sold between the remaining 12 countries.

Maybe now you get the idea MS has sold almost 1 million more units in US than outside US,even that US is 1 country and there are 12 other countries, by a few months US sales can actually double outside US sales of the xbox one,this is the reason why splitting sales between territories is not viable,because US is a huge market for MS,but outside US the xbox one is basically dead.

The PS4 has sold like 2.4 or 2.5 million in US,the rest outside as you can see since sony sell great also outside,the sales of outside countries >> US ones.

@tymeservesfate: What do you expect when they giving free games or silently cutting console price to 399 via promo. lol... Can you imagine Sony to cut 100$ as well for a month what will happen ?!

That wont be for too long. Just wait and see

They are really not closing in on the PS4. They'll get a boost from Titanfall, but even in NA the PS4 is continually outselling the Xbox One. That extra $100 is killer and a single, multiplayer only title isn't enough to convince people that price difference is worth it.

I have actually seen topics on here stating that Titanfall will make the X1 outsell the PS4. Lol

It will help a little for a little while in N. A. only. As N.A. seems to work that way with Xbox.

It might outsell PS4 for match in markets like NA/UK or whatever. The thing is they need consistency if they want to really win this generation. And i dont see how there will be such things with X1. Maybe if they keep giving away free games and 100$ promos but still , for how long ? 2 months ? 3 , 5 , 10 months ? Sony's big guns arent even out yet and PS4 sales like crazy because lets face it. Winner = worldwide sales not NA sales.

People are pretending the gap is bigger than it really is. Of course, I don't have exact numbers, but I do have recent info. It's no where near what people here are guessing.

BTW, Titanfall bundle may have another deal coming soon on the Microsoft website. Keep an eye out.

So , since you know , tell us what the gap really is.

What game is going to push the Xbox One past the PS4? Its not going to be Titanfall as it is not a X1 exclusive. people can get it on PC and soon on X360. Meanwhile, the PS4 is getting Infamous Second Son and MLB The Show 14....two exclusives. Not saying that they are system sellers, but from what I have been hearing for a while now, people have been waiting for Infamous before getting a PS4. The $100 price difference is also huge and until MS drops the X1's retail, the PS4 will continue to stomp it in sales!

The games are what make the console. Price is great in the short term and a terrible reason to buy something in the long term.

and that is why you don't buy an Xbox One because it will have Exclusive games here and there and in the long run sony will have a steady flow of games, including better multiplats.

On to the Topic, it's all well and good throwing pecentages around but the fact is Xbox One still needs to catch up on numbers with the first 3 months before even thinking about catching PS4 in sales, if they do that then it starts being better but the jump in sales is more to do with Titanfall than anything but PS4 has got Infamous coming soon so we'll see a spike there aswel, there both selling good but, it's a long way before Xbox One reaches PS4, PS4 at the moment is doubled installed base.

Maybe when Halo Gears Forza trio arrives it will catch up to PS4

The 360 outsold the PS3 3-1 in N.A. last gen, it had a year's headstart, & it was priced $200 less for 3 years after the PS3 released and the PS3 still caught up and passed it in sales.

No such advantages exist with X1 vs PS4. So how on earth could anyone believe the X1 would have a shot at winning?!

The only way would be if MS could come up with some really popular advantages, like many killer exclusive titles, or decided to start giving Xlive for free, or were able to sell the X1 for $300 or less starting this fall.

I seriously doubt MS can do anything radical enough to derail the PS4s success this gen.

another look at the recent sales situation of the XB1.

It takes a great exclusive for X1 to get close to PS4 sales while PS4 has no great exclusives released. Now imagine what will happen to PS4 sales when you have Infamous Second Son, Uncharted 4, and more out. This will halt any advantages gamewise that the X1 has.
