Barring a massive screw-up by Sony (not implausible) I want someone to give a legit reason how the Nextbox can outsell the PS4 released at the same time or earlier. It virtually impossible...

With full year head start M$ will still end up last place in sells. Big step up, but get ready to step down again. Nintendo will be last though.

Did anyone expect the Wii to win this gen?

We heard this exact chant with the Vita against the 3DS. Just Shhhh
#4 Posted by DarkLink77 (31695 posts) -

It ain't over 'till it's over, son. 

If you'd come out of the PS2 era saying Sony would end up fighting Microsoft for a distant second place and Nintendo would walk away the winner after the Gamecube, people would have laughed at you.

And look how that turned out.

#5 Posted by RyanShazam (6498 posts) -

If M$ releases a Kinect Box 2.0, I will instantly purchase the PS4. If not, I will wait until the 1 of them looks more promising than the other. I cant speak for everyone else.

For gamers they've won, but lems would rather have worse graphics, unreliable hardware, pay to play online have no games and get ripped off all gen long as long as M$ makes money.

 

I mean let's be realistic here, Sony has the multiplats, they get the oddball big budget third party exclusive more often the M$ and they have an insane amount of amazingly talented first/second party devs that share resources and makes amazing games.

 

It's so one sided.

Price? Sony could do another $599

#10 Posted by famicommander (8524 posts) -
I think both are in for the same sort of lukewarm reception that 3DS, Vita, and WiiU got... except Nintendo and Microsoft will be able to turn their ships around and Sony won't (see: Vita).

Good times.

#12 Posted by Eddie-Vedder (7782 posts) -

See how lems are all talking about sales already, when it's pretty obvious people are excited about the hardware not the low price point mass market gimmick appeal :lol:

 

Lems just want to watch M$ get rich, they don't care about anything else.

Microshaft aint got anything left. Their number 1 system selling franchise Halo that they have been using as a crutch since 2001 is losing popularity. It simply isn't the household name that it used to be. Micropuff has to try something new or pretty much accept defeat because there is no way they're going to be able to continue competing with Sony's first party studios.

It's going to be really funny if something other than the PS4 is announced on the 20th.

Xbox had a massive head start and cost less. Sony won't have such a disadvantage this time.

#26 Posted by FragTycoon (6430 posts) -

I really don't see my preferences changing for the foreseeable future (PC,Sony,MS, ball-in-a-cup, Nintendo). But never put it past a company to completely mess up a "sure thing" (i.e. MS). Also never put it past the advrage non-gamer to buy based on hype ala Wii.

For wall we know LG could make a $10 POS console that has an Angry Birds exclusive and take over the market.

Actually I don't remember because just got back into gaming after about 10 years off...but I made smart choice and bought a PS3 December 2011 instead of listening to every one saying the 360 was the way to. I don't regret my decision at all.

No one thought the Wii would win either. The Wii launched AFTER the PS3. Let's wait for all the NextGen consoles to be released first before we make predictions that turn out to be false. I don't think the Playstation will ever be as dominant as the PS2 was. those 150 million in sales days are over. I'm curious as to how many billions Sony will lose on this console.

Is there something I'm missing because there are so many accounts which their names are made up on three capitalised words.. It's a bit odd isn't it? Also no they haven't, they're a bit more modest but every word they say still wreaks of boasting and arrogance.

The 360 had massive hardware issues that created a stigma to the general public and still the PS3 could not outsell the 360. PS4 is a dead console walking. It is on Deathrow just like Sony.

That's what happens when you give one of the most important franchises in the industry to a second-rate developer.

I think 343 has potential. Their problem is they try too hard to mimic Bungie. They need thier own unique spin.

I think they're a bunch of hacks who put too much emphasis on an expanded universe no one cares about. They're slaves to the extended Halo lore. It's disgusting.

That makes zero sense. I will give a example I love Mass Effect but if Bungie put their own spin on it I probably would not have the same feelings for it. People love the Halo gameplay, the world, the characters, ect so changing the game sure as heck would not help it. Also Halo 4 is different from the other Halo games from new race, differences in multiplayer, and more cinamatic atmosphere but completely changing it sure as heck will not make Halo fans happy.

Yeah, you do.

Sony were taken down quite a few pegs this generation. They were top dog for two generations, and ended up playing third fiddle in this generation.
