Ouch, don't think the Xbone will last the full gen. Lems are in for a bad time.

7 to 1? Ouch...

Not seeing any sources in the links.

While I don't doubt it, I'm going to wait for an official report from Sony.

Same here, I'm assuming these reports are most close but off probably. Again Like you waiting for an official statement

No article for 4mill yet for Xbone?

BTW if these are sourcing insiderp articles then they are trash. Insiderp is a joke site.

I'm betting the MS quarterly report will be the next Xbox Sales update. Likely 4.3ish I would guess. But congrats to Sony. The PS4 is doing very well.

Interesting sources, never seen those before. If they are indeed accurate, that's pretty brutal.

Yeah I know you do, no harm in that, but if the articles you posted are citing that Insiderp site then you can definitely take this with a mountain of salt. Not the most reliable site is what I'm saying.

Even if it was true then it's unfair to boast about it since PS4 is available in about 5x more territories.

The board is called systemWARS. War isn't fair. Also that's completely M$'s fault.

I don't think the sauces are good , and they probably originated from insiderp.com (which took a recent credibility hit).

This made me laugh though. -

" For the majority of last generation, the Xbox 360 had a significant lead on the PS3, and for similar reasons. Sony botched the PS3 launch in a variety of ways — the console was gigantic, came out too late, and was too expensive. Microsoft didn’t botch the launch of the Xbox One, but definitelybotched the reveal. However, in the end, the PS3 and Xbox 360 were neck-and-neck in sales. It’s entirely possible that Microsoft’s botched Xbox One reveal will eventually wither away, and the console will catch up when all is said and one

Complete devastation if true.

You mean like the xbox 360 was world wide for 1 whole year and you people didn't even care.?

The PS4 dominating the xbox one on the 13 markets the xbox one is in,so yeah it would be no different in the rest.

Lems boasted last gen even though the 360 had a year of advantage and even though it lost to the PS3 in the end. So the lems can cry all they want, they are still the big losers of all gens.

have you ever been to insiderp website? lol It's badly made, that's the first warning flag, or should be :P. And erm.. iunno.. this isn't the only gaming forum I visit I guess. News everywhere and you pick up what's reliable and what's not.

whats the source on these numbers? the link in the geek.com article links back to the article with absolutely no links...sooo, idk, these numbers seem based off of no reports at all. it'd be great for Sony...but we still need new reports, or at least...something, to prove this is true.

and it says these are just shipped...but i'm guessing shipped units are relevant in this thread by now, so skip it.

#24 Posted by silversix_ (13904 posts) -

Just look at garbage games available on X1 and games like Infamous, of course PS4 is outselling the bone. better games, more powerful AND cheaper. Its a no brainer.

#25 Posted by GoldenElementXL (2706 posts) -

If the source was VGChartz this thread would have been locked already. How is this source any better?

Anyways I think we all expect Sony to do quite well. Microsoft is still hurting from all of the negative press from the reveal. After talking to friends and chatting with workers/customers at stores it is clear that Microsoft hasn't communicated the changes very well. People still think they can't buy used games or play the console offline. The misinformed do a better job of spreading false information than anyone else. Just ask Tea Party followers :P

Couldn't it be considered that the Xbox is already in its primary selling territories though?

You should read this and educate yourself.

The shipped not sold argument is one of the dumbest things ever argued on SW

What were the numbers for last gen, and when do we stop counting?

#31 Edited by -CC- (1889 posts) -

Wow. So how long will it take 3rd parties to leave the Xbone? Most wont make money with these pathetic sales. Maybe the biggest 3rd party games will stay multi. MAYBE

Sorry, this will have to be locked until credible sources are found. The first source uses Insiderp, which is a very unreliable website that does not disclose how they get information or where. The second link you provide users your first link as a source, which again used Insiderp. If you find a more reliable source PLEASE PM me and I'll gladly reopen it for you TC
