Prediction: PS4 will outsell XBoxOne 2-to-1 in the US and 3-to-1 globally this year.

Forums - Sales Discussion - Prediction: PS4 will outsell XBoxOne 2-to-1 in the US and 3-to-1 globally this year.

The $100 price difference will make a HUGE difference for the average American video gamers (not to mention no DRM, no restriction on used games, no required online, etc...).  Previously, although I was confident that PS4 will outsell Xbox1 globally, I didn't think PS4 would outsell Xbox1 in the US.

Sony absolutely trolled MS at E3.

MS has lots of catching up to do such as price drop even before console release day or removing required online or removing used game restriction.

We will have to see. The strength of the Xbox brand in the US is still very strong, especially with the 360 still dominating over there. That said, it's not impossible. Both MS and Sony played all their card tonight, and Sony certainly came out far ahead.

MS played most of their cards. they announced 13 exclusives from their 15, titan fall probably isnt one of the 15 they talked about though. sony announced first party 20 exclusives to come in the first year, 30 in development. they have knack, drive club, KZ, infamous and the order announced. meaning they have shit load of games still unannounced. sony has a lot more cards to play. the only reason people are saying they "won" is bacuase the price and no DRM

I agree that the Xbox brand is strong here in the US.  But for the average consumer to choose between $499 or $399, that's a big difference

they didn't need to show any games.  People were actually chanting Sony after that used games announcement.  I've never heard that at E3.  I mean this was just absolute annihilation.  They seriously could've had a 1 minute conference for that and the price and left and they would have won.  Everything else was just gravy.

Hmmm not sure about that. If Sony can even match Xbox sales in the states it would be a huge victory. Their global numbers will crush Xbox, but sales in the US will still favor Microsoft.



I was walking down along the street and I heard this voice saying, "Good evening, Mr. Dowd." Well, I turned around and here was this big six-foot rabbit leaning up against a lamp-post. Well, I thought nothing of that because when you've lived in a town as long as I've lived in this one, you get used to the fact that everybody knows your name.

ok maybe I'm exaggerating a little but honestly that moment was just epic enough to carry a whole conference.  Besides we already knew about KZ, Infamous, Knack, Driveclub, and exclusive Destiny stuff.

It'll depend on whether people think the +$100 is worth it for kinect, since Sony doesn't include their camera in the package.  If it is compelling enough to the general public, it will do well like Wii.  Sony will probably capture more of the "hardcore" gamers.



Impossible this year.
Even if the demand would be there, Sony can't deliver that many more consoles than MS can.
So for this to be possible the Xbox One must not sell well at all in december while the PS4 is sold out.
Don't see that happening.
