And lems thought Titanfall was the savior of the XB1 that it would outsell the PS4 in march.

It has almost done nothing for the console

Indeed, still clearly a game for gamers... not a game for graphic whoring repetitive movie watchers.

Did you play second son? Because I certainly did.

Also who are you to declare what's a game and what's not?

I did.... I platinum it then traded it in for the far superior in every aspect except "teh graphcs" Assassin's Creed 4.

PSN tag MBirdy88 ... incase you have your doubts on that.

both are games.... one is clearly treated more of a game for those that like gameplay, competition and teamwork.... I don't make the rules, I just observe them.

hows the dust on your infamous copy? did you notice next to no difficulty increase from easy to expert too? its like the game was rushed out of the doors with no substance... oh wait, it was.

@I_can_haz: @Animal-Mother: Yeah at least I proudly embrace my bias. Fake manticores like blackface are a joke because he clearly prefers Xflop and wants it to do better than PS4. Owning a PS4 does not absolve him of being a lemming.

Who cares. Both systems are outselling last generation, which is great in developers eyes.

I don't think anyone has ever said that. New IP's usually aren't system sellers.

The PS4 sold anywere from 190K-220K this month in the US. It's most likely on the lower end of this scale.

It's like 70-90K less then last month. So sales are dropping.

problem with your bias is half the stuff you say is made up to suit yourself. so no, your no better than him. don't even hold dellusions of otherwise.

Where is blackace and his lem friends? I find it hard to believe that xhawk27 is the only lem representing the lemming faction in this thread. I guess those guys will surface a few days later. It's a pity though that they were so confident that the gap was closing. I do hope they are alright, these are trying times for the lemming brotherhood.

You still think I'm a lem. lmao!! I don't represent any fraction. I don't kiss corporation's ass like you and your Cow friends. I'm sure the gap will start closing some after the E3 and then again after the XB1 launches in the other 30+ countries in Sept. It's not really a big deal at this point since both systems are outselling last gen systems. The PS4 won't outsell the Wii's first year which was just over 20 million. The Wii did it with continue supply constraints. The PS4 has none of that anymore.

What about this fraction?

Let's see if you can figure out this fraction.

There weren't many titles in April, only Final Fantasy.

There'll be a boost with Watchdogs for this month i reckon, Sony have been pushing it hard and i think it's been viewed as the first of the real next gen titles so will pull over some 360/PS3 users who haven't made the jump.

Problem is everything being announced even so far is getting last-gen releases.

Look at Destiny? could of been a MASSIVE next gen push... but nope.. PS3/360 included. Far Cry 4... 360/PS3 included....

Quite a unique gen in that sense.... but it means the new consoles are less desirable... until the old console cut off... but then.... those old machines still generate tons of profit in ways that PS2/XONE/Gamecube could not... so when will support be dropped?

Heh... maybe like PC upgrades to people now... just to get better graphics and play SOME new games....

There were no notable releases in April. MLB The Show and the superior version of Watch Dogs will give PS4 another shot in the arm to boost May sales. Xbone has nothing this month.

But it's still a game no matter how you spin it :D

I also platinumed it and there is no dust. I keep my place clean.

Yikes @ the xbone numbers. You can see why Microsoft announced the price cut. E3 is going to be amazing. Either Microsoft turns it around, or Sony is going to bury them. Gonna be a good show.

next gen will really take off this fall if uncharted and halo release. last gen console sales have fallen off the cliff though, during x360 first april ps2 outsold it but both nextgen consoles this year have easily outsold ps3+x360. software sales are still pretty strong though but it usually takes 1 year for next gen to fully kickin

@blackace: dat denial. Lying about being the most recognized lem on SW. I guess when your faction is getting owned left and right it's okay to deny belonging to them.

"B...bu....bu...but I am not a lem, BELIEVE ME!!!1" LOL

Too bad tour post history says otherwise. You are so far up M$'s ass that if they sneezed your head would pop out of their nostrils.

I have no fractions besides manticore. Youi're so far up Sony's ass you can taste their piss. lmao!! Meantime I own a PS4 & PSVita and have praised and pre-ordered their games. What have you done on the XB1 sides of things? LMAO!! You're a #%$&^! joke with childish views and a delusional demeanor. Most SW vets ignore your crappy comments the same way as El Tormo.

Sit and spin on this.

Wheres Infamous Second Sons at? Why the fuck are PS4 owners not buying and playing games? They just fall for the hype, buy a PS4 then realized theres nothing to play and just twiddle their thumbs and stick it up their butts. Lol.

Pretty crazy how the 360 still outselling the PS3. Shows you lots of people were disappointed by the PS3 and hope and gave the PS4 a chance.

@gago-gago: don't get too excited. Sony said Infamous was the highest selling nextgen game last month on their twitter page. It outsold Titanfall on the Xflop. NPD is combining sales for multiple platforms that's why Infamoua isn't charting. The Titanfall numbers you see here are 360, PC and Xbone numbers lol.

#175 Posted by intotheminx (672 posts) -

So, sales dipped for both consoles and there are more previous gen games in top 10 than any other. What does that tell me? Either the new systems don't have shit to play or there are a lot more people that haven't jumped shit yet.

#176 Posted by _SWAG_ (2595 posts) -

lulz xbone is fuckin dead! ps4 n infamous are number 1. titanflop didn't save the xbone at all lulz. if I was a xbone owner I would take a dump on it then smash it witha sledge hammer then bury it with et game. If u buy a xbone now ur brain got mental problems imho facts

Lemme get this straight, every source are saying Titanfall is number one but a Sony twitter says Infamous is number one lol. Sony got exposed with lies and twisting numbers with PR again.

#178 Posted by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

@gago-gago: IGN is also reporting it as well as other sources. I know this must be terrible news for you but you're just gonna have to deal within the fact that Titanflop got outsold on the Xbone.

Titanfall is no 1 if you combine all the platforms. However, if you only combine individual platform, than Infamous on ps4 outsold Titanfall on xbox 1.

Really dude? Infamous isn't charting because it isn't selling enough copies to chart. Grasping a little aren't we?

So exclusives don't chart now? I can haz a hit off of what your smoking? Sony, business as usual. Maybe infamous sold 1080p 60fps copies?

Microsoft once again destroyed Sony in software sales, for the how many, I can't count, months.

thats because they can't measure how much people bought a gaming pc, and they know all pc games get pirated to death and real sales are abysmal.

@Stevo_the_gamer: I'm willing to bet in your 7 years of posting you've talked about sales...

So.

Here's one example.

"Wii had the sales, PC had the games. The only losers are the Xbox and PS3, although at least the Xbox greatly improved from the previous generation where as the PS3 stumbled."

I'm willing to be there are more.....
