Sony's Playstation 4 has outsold Microsoft's Xbox One in 2013 and gap between the two is of over a million units (PS4 sold over 4.2 million units and Xbox One shipped 3.9 million by end of Dec 2013). But Microsoft is hoping to close on this gap before it get out of hands, and they are pinning their hopes on Respawn Entertainment's upcoming sci-fi FPS "Titanfall".
According to Ketu Patel, Amazon UK Category Leader of VideoGame And Software, Titanfall will definitely provide a boost to sales of Xbox One and this difference in sales figure will decrease.
Patel however later added (as a personal view) that the sales figure gap between PS4 and Xbox One is BIG and Microsoft's still has a lot of catching up to do, and with won't be achievable with Titanfall ALONE.
Speaking to Edge At Amazon's Summer Wish List, Ketu Patel said: "If you look at our bestsellers chart PS4 always has been, and still is, our number one best seller,"
"Xbox One will fall somewhere within the top five. Obviously one console has outperformed the other generally and we probably confirm that split between the two."
When asked to comment on Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall, Patel said: "[Titanfall] will be a big driver. I think Microsoft have got themselves a big coup there in negotiating that with EA. It will help close the gap, but personally speaking I think that gap is quite a big one at the moment. There’s a lot of catching up to do."
Rightly said by Patel, Microsoft is hoping wonders from Titanfall for Xbox One, but that HOPE is TOO MUCH?,
