PS4's restocked yesterday here in Toronto and I go into ebgames/gamestop and they have the Xbox one stacked up like a minecraft tree and the PS4 is like a rare elusive pokemon your trying to catch with a master ball. The thing just sells where ever it lands. I managed to finally get my PS4 after the third gamestop store I visited.

I doubt this system wars last very long. The PS3 vs 360 was a close race even with the PS3 releasing a year later. With all the first party devs Sony has, all this Indie Station jokes will die out quickly while lems are stuck once again with their Forza and Halo while PS4 has first party devs pumping out games like there is no tomorrow. Hell, at least the 360 had gears of war to make it a triple threat.

Think about it. You think third party devs will make games exclusive to a console that is way behind in the market? I bet you the devs behind titanfall and dead rising are crying at night.

I give the Xbone 2 years life span. You?

How long did it take to see the Wii in stores?

#7 Edited by blackace (19714 posts) -

@Omega-316: Xbox One have a 10yr plan in place. Microsoft has billions. I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon. All the 3rd party games going to the PS4 will be on the XB1 as well. M$ will have another 10-12 more exclusives to show at the E3. That's on top of the 8-10 other they haven't released from last years E3. Over 25 exclusives in the first year.

XB1 are still selling at a steady pace.

Over a year. I checked just about every month. The DS was sold out for about 8 months. Don't think the PS4 will come close to these numbers.

Were you even alive when the Wii released? You couldn't find it in any stores for the longest time. Was sold out as soon as it hit the floor.

In my neck of the woods in Canada PS4 has been the fastest selling console, at many local retailers such as EB on average every 2/3 people walk in ask about the PS4, it's pretty intense.

Sarcasm? I was being honest I'm from Canada specifically Montreal, how was I being sarcastic? I live right near an EB Games, Best Buy and Futureshop and each time people come in the gaming section they ask when the PS4 is going to be available, so how am I sarcastic or where do you believe that. I already have my PS4 btw.

Dead Rising 3 already sold a million copies at least according to articles posted on other websites & titanfall is coming out on X1 which most likely sell over a million in its first week. it also comes out for Xbox 360/ PC with the 360 having huge install base so idk what ur talking about unless ur a kid which u most likely are. X1 will not have a 2yr life span just like nintendo wii u crappy machine especially when wii u does have a great games coming out this year. X1 ps4/ wii u have been out in the market less then a year so i doubt neither of the 3 are going any where only a little retarded kid will think that.

This is a troll thread which is obvious & only reason sony is selling well is cause of the price & it sure as hell isn't the games lol. Knack is garbage, sony was embrassed to show it at E3 last year with little to NO footage of that trash. Killzone 4 was the most traded in game at Gamestop according to dozens of articles which isn't a big surprise since its a garbage game & only exclusive fps that sony fans have which is pretty sad lol. There was resistance but umm that tanked lol. Look at guys like AngryJoe, DSPGAMING, TheRadBrad etc who have voices with huge fan install base that say killzone is complete garbage & just a tech demo with shit gameplay & not fanboys so more or less they'll listen to them them unlike most 12 yr olds on here that talk to the same 20 people on forums 24/7 lol.

TheOrder or watever its called looks dull as shit & we all know how sonys new IPs turn out like Knack, warhawk, twisted metal, resistance 1-3, starhawk, LBP, & even infamous 2 sold worse then the first games lol. So i doubt TheOrder won't do anything special & seeing wat gameplay or trailers i've seen it looks like it'll join the bandwagon of sonys IPs that never sell.. That go's for infamous 3. Infamous 3 i doubt will sell well just as Infamous 2 with its shit sales when it debuted since the gameplay of 3 looks very genertic & reminds me alot of Saints Row 4 with it's super Powers & very identical at least from what has been shown already for Infamous 3. The gameplay of Infamous 3 looks dull only going after genertic foot soldiers with body armor with machine guns just auto aiming at you. Weak gameplay of just shooting red spit balls at the A.I. & sum stupid little mini cutscene where he flys up in the air into the camera with his cheesy smile lol (cringes) then just comes down which also reminds me ALOT of SR4 only No cheesy smile lol. The stuff where u blow stuff up like a crappy gate or a pillar where the enemy is shooting the player at was really weak since u can tell it's meant to break & not impressive.

So Sony hasn't won a damn thing yet especially with these games that are complete garbage & new IPs like TheOrder which sony's New IP over the years haven't proven themselves yet especially Infamous series which has never been a must buy 2 games later & not much else coming out this year except for uncharted which more or less will come out in 2015. So all 3 consoles need to show games that are great in not only graphics but in GAMEPLAY at least when it comes down to exclusives.

The thing just sells where ever it lands. I managed to finally get my PS4 after the third gamestop store I visited.

I doubt this system wars last very long. The PS3 vs 360 was a close race even with the PS3 releasing a year later. With all the first party devs Sony has, all this Indie Station jokes will die out quickly while lems are stuck once again with their Forza and Halo while PS4 has first party devs pumping out games like there is no tomorrow. Hell, at least the 360 had gears of war to make it a triple threat.

I say don't quit your day job for a future in financial analysis. The PS4 will outsell it because it is the world wide leader in the industry. It was last gen as well. The X1 will have a stable audience and be a good console. It doesn't have to be first to be profitable or enjoyable, just look at PS3/360. And there will be more than Forza and Halo on it. QB, ever heard of it? And MS just signed up the studio responsible for State of Decay

I think that Xbox One will end up as profitable business. Console is made of cheaper parts but selling at a higher price. They are holding the USA market in which gamers spend most on games. And they are getting steady revenue from Xbox Live subscription. The key to increase the profit will be to get the Xbox One owners to spend more on games and other entertainment options on Xbox One. The fact that the Xbox is designed to be always on to overlay TV will help contribute to that. They are on to something here. Ultimately, I think that Microsoft will lose the console wars in terms on number of consoles sold. However, I think that the Xbox business will be profitable.

I never said things were rosey at Sony. I said Things were rosey as far as the PS4 vs X1. Sony is lining things up to make a killing with PS4: 1. They are not losing money on each one sold. 2. The PS4 is selling like crazy. 3. Sony is making $50/yr from each PSN+ account on PS4. 4. Sony has a popular Music Unlimited service on PS4 that people are paying $10/month for. 5. Sony is about to release PS Now that streams PS1, PS2, & PS3 games to the PS4 for a monthly fee.

Meanwhile the Wii U is done, the X1 is selling much less, & they're building momentum more & more. The PS4 was planned masterfully by Sony, because they knew they needed to do it right since they had to or else their gaming division would go under. They designed the PS4 as small & inexpensive as possible while planning many ways to make a lot of revenue from it.

Keep bashing Sony's financial situation as you watch MS fall further & further behind as this gen goes along.

Keep defending MS which screwed themselves over by the way they've designed & handled the X1's release.

The Xbox One will do just fine. It has a lot of great exclusives coming out that will keep it selling. PS4 will sell based on hype and multiplats but Xbox One has new and unique experiences coming out like Kinect Sports Rivals, Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, Halo 5, Titanfall, etc. etc. while the PS4 is the same ole same ole.

It's going to be further & further behind as this gen goes on. MS said to their fans "Stop arguing with PS fans". They know Sony is going to outsell the X1 this gen. They only mustered a tie with many advantages with the 360.

I enjoyed the first Xbox & it only sold 25 million lifetime. It's time for Xbox fans to realize their arguing is futile.

Son, I was playing Donkey Kong Country on the SNES while you ceased to exist.

Still a young kid then. You really shouldn't use the word "son" to anyone at least till you're older than the average poster here. Doesn't seem like you are kid.
