I mean...its pretty much undeniable.

I'm actually rooting for Wii-U in 2nd Place. Xbone is an awkward pre-teen console not sure what it wants to be

PS: Did those "superior" devkits that allow for higher than 720/30FPS on the bone come in yet?

Inquiring minds are hungry.

No, gamers won this gen. We get DRM, DLC, pre order incentives, graphical downgrades, DRM, DLC, DLC, DRM, what's not to like?

Sounding an awfully lot like Xbox fanboys in late 2006/early 2007. We all saw how that turned out.

Yea, cause I'm sure Microsoft and Nintendo are thinking "hey, we're getting our asses kicked, but at least the consumer won!"

Gen is far from being over, but they are off to a marvelous start, following the by gamers FOR gamers mantra and coupling it with Live, Learn and Love.

As a PS4 lover and someone who likes Sony products......I have to disagree.

This gen just started. It's a marathon not a sprint.

That said....I'm glad my console of choice is the lead platform.

Nah, they had the best start, but a generation may run for a long time, and alot of Things can happen through 5+ years.

What kind of sad loser would for one second care that the corporation that owns their gaming console is making more money than the other companies?

Next you'll tell cows are happy if Sony's selling more TV's than Panasonic

We're the consumers, in case you missed it. Or, do you have stocks invested in sony?

First off - you're in system wars, btw. Second - of course we win when there's competition Third - a business is a business, and the goal IS to win. you know that, right?

@Wasdie: Exactly.

I remember these threads but in reverse last gen. "So 360 has won this gen right?"

If Sony could turn PS3 around and at least tie 360 sales, then I could see Microsoft doing the same with X1. They will really have to work for it though. No, I'm not saying X1 is selling poorly at all, they just need to step it up to catch up with the PS4.

Well, PS4 is the best place to play. The future is looking bright for Playstation. Sony? I am not so sure of. If Playstation ever gets sold, I hope the key staff moves along with it.

Lem, you are absolutely right about that. Microsoft investors are absolutely accustomed to obscene profits from business ventures. That's why WebTV and Zune have been runaway successes.

Oh, wait.

Nobody has won anything yet. The race just started. Do you see any XB1 games being announced at 720P anymore? LMAO!! Almost all XB1 games are now being announced as 1080P native. Do you need Sherlock Holmes to help you figure it out the answer?

They're certainly in a good position to win. That said, neither console has many notable games.

This 7-8 year gen is 6 months old, and you are saying there is some sort of "winner" to declare...

Wow.

This.

Last gen was so Sony's own undoing not MS's success necessarily early on. Sony has the momentum, they have Japan which MS will never get in a million years, and PS brand is stronger in EU. Now as long as they match the NA sales than Sony will win. Ninty is crawling back to GCN status at this rate without the casual craze boosting their sale.

Still early to tell, but it seems like it is heading that way for sure. As a PS4 owner this is a great news, it means more support from developers!

1- yeah i know. This isn't my first account

2- So you get a cut of the profits if Sony makes money?

3- For sony and MS. Not you or the morons who care which comapny "wins". Again, unless you're getting some part of the profits or are making income by winning.

Discussing which platform is better, offer more value, has better games, etc, is what platform wars is all about. We, has gamers, experience that, which features are added, whic games can be played, how potential issues may affect them, and so on.

Only idiots care if Sony or MS are making more money than the other.

I've been os SW before, and i've always made fun of the sales wars. Dumbest discussion on these forums for years. I've always had that stance.

Oh, wait.

You act like other companies don't make a few bad products. What about Sony's MOVE and the disasterous PSPGo? Even the PSVita has had its shares of misfortunes. The difference with Microsoft and Sony however is even with the Zune and WebTV failures, Microsoft didn't have to sell HQ buildings, sell over $350 million in stocks and layoff over 9000 employees just to try and show a profit for one quarter. Even with that, Sony still lost almost a billion for the year. Sony even announced they would cut back development of AAA games for the PSVita. Are they doing that for the PS3 and PS4 as well? Even Nintendo made the terrible Virtual Boy years ago and the Wii VitalitySensor & Wii UDraw items were crap. Yet they still made billions off the Wii system and it's games. Sony made a nice little profit this quarter, but how well did their other businesses do. Sony is still expected huge losses for this year, even with PS4 doing so well.

Corporate slave. You're not just a fan of Xbox, like an xbot should be... but a fan of the corporation. Pretty sad that you work for these guys for free.

I don't work for any of them. I understand the facts can sting a little bit for biased fanboys. Sorry about that. You should already know this. "The Truth will set you free." lol!! I couldn't resist.

That's just MS PR Bull Crap, having a strong start will net you more income in the long run because you're going to sell more software over a longer period of time at full price.
