We're all consumers here. People buying the PS4 are getting more for their money at a discounted price and Xbone buyers are paying more money than they should be so Microsoft can turn a profit. Good for the company, bad for the consumer.

I've heard the term that Lems like taking it up the rear from M$, but this seals the deal.

Great point. I'm not sure what kind of self-respecting person would celebrate the fact that the brand they like costs them more as a consumer, while that same brand is simultaneously profiting from them.

To TC's point. PS4 is generating much more revenue globally. So there's that.

What can you expect? Microsoft makes money, Sony loses money and then sells property and insurance and lays off employee's to stay afloat.

Revenues = Profits since when.?

286> 258...hahhahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa How does it feel to be 3rd place William...hahaha

@tymeservesfate:

Like your post states, these numbers account for U.S sales ONLY! The PS4 is still selling more than the Xbox One worldwide, Xbox One sold over 3 million compared to over 6 million units for the PS4.

U.S has always been microsofts big market, and even though the month of Febuary indicated sales were close to the PS4, its still loosing as far as consoles sold (in there main market!). You also have to factor in that the PS4 is out of stock in major online retailers, and in stores. Amazon continuously runs out of stock on a day to day basis.

#55 Edited by cainetao11 (19512 posts) -

If you have a stake in the companies, this matters. I do own stock in both. The X1 does sell at a small profit on each console sold, and I really think that was the point of the $500 price point. They wanted to be in the black on revenue from new gen sales out the gate. PS4 sells at a small loss to Sony. I know the way that will be spun by some here. I am glad both consoles are serving the companies, and share holders. It makes the industry much more interesting when you get involved.

LOL wot?

The Xbone is priced 100 dollars more than PS4 so of course gamers spent more money (getting ripped of) on Xbone and sales of both consoles were close.

Anyway pls continue with your damage control lemmings.

The facts remain the same.

-PS4 is stronger and has superior multiplats

-PS4 is winning

-PS4 has best first-party support

...

Inb4 "bu..bu..bu..titanfall!"

LOL

Define winning? If you were a company which metric would you care about most? More hardware sales or more Revenue?

Really? what multiplats have been released on the PS4 that are not on the xbone?

Because i can name one multiplat thats on the Xbone and not on the Ps4

TITANFALL,lol

Ps4 doesn't have better third party support at all dude, stop pulling rubbish out of your backside.

The rest i agree with but thats just a stupid statement

You might try reading what you quoted. He clearly stated "First Party"

oops, yeah, i apologise, didn't have my reading lasses on when i wrote that, but even thats debatable now because MS has just as many if not more first party studios (if you can figure out which ones actually Exist and are not just on paper)

Mainly I guess he is talking about Naughty Dog who were amazing last gen

Agreed, the last of us wiped the floor with gaming awards and everyone i have spoken too has said how amazing the game is, Naughty dog are incredibly talented developers and in a few years i expect people to look at naughty dog with the same respect we show Developers like ID, Valve and epic.

So lemmings are excited that they were overcharged by MS for an under-powered console just so they can say MS put more money in their pockets?

you do realize Sony is trying to make a profit too, yes? they just can't seem too though :[

also the hundred dollars more is for Kinect. you get more in the box...u pay more. common sense broski.

You get nothing from Sony, even though you're under their @$$ like a pet begging for treats.

Both systems are selling at a loss currently anyways. The difference is M$ isn't selling any HQ's or laying off 6000 workers to make ends meet.

At least they're not forced to buy PS eye and pay for Gold to play anything online, and they got PS+ first meaning Sony was already giving before them. And PS3 is still getting exclusive Support so they don't necessarily feel forced to get the new console right away to get anything new.

Lastly M$ isn't earning that money from xbox it's earning that money from Monopoly on the OS market.

not to derail the subject but i don't see why cows, n people, keep saying the XB1 only sold 3 million in comparison to Sony's 6 million. MS stated they sold 3.9 million consoles a month or so before Sony released their numbers. unless you really think the Xbox One didnt sell anymore consoles after that day it announced the 3.9 mil then ur just stacking the deck to try and make the ps4 look good lol.

Mention a postitive fact and cows ass hurt goes off the charts. No wonder they are the bottom feeders of SW.

Sony hasn't taken notes on business in a long time. The red is getting redder.

$1.1 billion loss, buildings sold for pennies on the dollar, no games, first party devs quit, jack Tretton resigns, FlopFamous gets a massive downgrade. Titanfall isn't on the PS4 line up and Sony fanboys are reduced to Resogun and Tower Fall as "contenders". Oh the LOL

Everyone knows M$ knows how to make boat loads of cash. But until they start sending me checks or I become a shareholder I don't care.

#75 Posted by I_can_haz (6511 posts) -

Lemming desperation continuation.

#76 Posted by NFJSupreme (5405 posts) -

Also revenue is greater but net income is about the same. M$ makes slightly more off each xbone sale than Sony so from a competitive standpoint both companies are equal in that regard right now.

#77 Posted by Karpetburnz (532 posts) -

Sony still makes more profit worlwide, so this is in no way some sort of advantage to Microsoft. You Lemmings are singling out certain countries to make the Xbone seem like more of a success.

And with a higher install base means more software sales which is where the profit is. PS4 is beating Xbone in profit. deal with it.

#78 Posted by BoozDigi (279 posts) -

@tymeservesfate:

I stated that the Xbox one sold over 3 million, and that the ps4 sold over 6 million (I didnt remember the Exact figures). I used these numbers because these are the most recent CONFIRMED sales numbers, and of course each of those numbers has grown as of now and the next CONFIRMED sales figures will show higher numbers of consoles sold (worldwide).

I've heard the term that Lems like taking it up the rear from M$, but this seals the deal.

Great point. I'm not sure what kind of self-respecting person would celebrate the fact that the brand they like costs them more as a consumer, while that same brand is simultaneously profiting from them.

To TC's point. PS4 is generating much more revenue globally. So there's that.

The Xbox One is only the "revenue king" in the US, its strongest market. It's a completely different story in the rest of the world, where the PlayStation brand has always been more popular.

And even in the US, since the PS4 and Xbox One both have similar profit margins, and the PS4 sold more units in the US, that would make the PS4 the "profit king" in the US.

The funniest thing here is that Lems are bragging about paying too much for a console, saying it's a good thing that Microsoft is selling their console at a profit and Sony isn't. We're all consumers here. People buying the PS4 are getting more for their money at a discounted price and Xbone buyers are paying more money than they should be so Microsoft can turn a profit. Good for the company, bad for the consumer.

I've heard the term that Lems like taking it up the rear from M$, but this seals the deal.

Great point. I'm not sure what kind of self-respecting person would celebrate the fact that the brand they like costs them more as a consumer, while that same brand is simultaneously profiting from them.

To TC's point. PS4 is generating much more revenue globally. So there's that.

well this post is a little ironic isnt it....well a lot ironic actually, lol.

But how is this relevant to me, the gamer? Oh wait, it isn't.

not really relevant at all...i just wanted to get a kick out seeing cows DC and bash it after watching them crow on n on about the ps4's sales for weeks. now the XB1 making an actual dominating profit/revenue over their competitor means nothing...but the ps4 selling more does, lol, good times.

Well clearly you are a child based off your childish response to me, so we are done. You have a good day now kid.

lol smh, seeya pal.

@tymeservesfate: Uh you said "the ps4 is going to need a price INCREASE soon at this point"

That isn't accurate. Most consoles are sold at a loss until x amounts of units are purchased...ie the break even point....at that time they begin to create profit. The software sales until that time off set the loss. It's nothing new this gen. Happens all the time. No price increase will happen.

No tears....only dreams.

For this round Microsoft said they wanted to sell the console at a profit rather than at a loss. Sony on the other hand is planning for a loss to break even. Which is why PS4 is a better machine.

O_o.... XD

thanks for your input XD

Pretty PS4 made more revenue worldwide, which is what counts in the end unless you are a lemming looking for a spin.

By a mile.

The Evil Empire forgot that this gen will be a generation for services. XBL Gold subscription is down immensely from last-gen. PS+ subscriptions now eclipse LIVE subs for BOTH the 360 and the Xbone.

That just means M$ is fucking its consumers over more with overpriced peripherals and last gen tech. Congrats lems, you really have achieved the lowest level.

You can say the same thing about sales. They are equally pointless.

Sony still makes more profit worlwide, so this is in no way some sort of advantage to Microsoft. You Lemmings are singling out certain countries to make the Xbone seem like more of a success.

And with a higher install base means more software sales which is where the profit is. PS4 is beating Xbone in profit. deal with it.

Sony is 6 billion in debt, it'll be a long time before they report a profit. Singling out the gaming division is no different than Lems singling out North America.
