Xbox One will now sell as many units as PS4, says Pachter

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox One will now sell as many units as PS4, says Pachter

Breaking even in the U.S. would be very good for the PS4 and would lead to a global dominance for the coming year.



 Go Team Venture! I still don't get the Wii, PS Move,  and Kinect.

Really?? Seems to me there are plenty of great titles coming to both X360 & PS3. As for lack of exclusive midway through this generation... simple... Sony already had tons of in house developers while Microsoft around that same time was in the process of building up their in house studios.

Since 2008 Microsoft has added Press Play, Twisted Pixel, Black Tusk Studios, Soho Productions, Lift London, BigPark, Microsoft Studios Victoria & Microsoft Studios Osaka. That`s at least 8 studios built from the ground up or purchased outright since 2007.

Sony on the other hand during this same timeframe has been shutting down a good chunk of studios but also had tons more considering their one generation head start on Microsoft.

Studios are great but the end of cycle games can't compare. TLoU + Beyond2Souls + GT6 versus Gears of war 4?

takes time to build up good developer talent. Last of Us and Beyond 2 Souls I agree with but forza is hands down the better sim game compared to Gran Turismo.

One of points is that most of Sony`s development studios have been around for years while the majority of Microsoft`s are just a few years old at best.

My other point is that Sony has had longer to build up good development studios longer than Microsoft. It takes time for development studios to produce games and considering most of Microsoft`s were formed within the last few years it is no surprise that they had a larger amount of exclusives late in this generation. If you look at X360 up to 2007 there were more timed exclusives and third party exclusives overall during that time and also they closed major studios like FASA Studios and Ensemble Studios during that time as well.



 How our favorite systems are just like humans and sometimes have issues finding their special someone...

Xbox 360 wants to KinectPS3 wants to Move!  Why are both systems having such relationship problems?  The reason is they both become so infactuated with desire while watching the Wii as it waggles on by. They simply want what they can't have.

Most of the 1st party exclusives are going to the xbone, I'm pretty sure that's your answer.

Does he mean globally or in Nth America? If he means globally I don't see it. Also MS won't drop the price if they are selling in the same ballpark as PS4. It'll only be if XB one80 is selling at 50-60% of PS4 that they will drop the price out of desperation.


This is right on the money^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Conclusion: Xbox One is now officially doomed.

Forever.



Ever since Microsoft retracted their DRM plans, I knew I would get an Xbox One at some point. I will still buy a PS4 first, and maybe even a Wii U before an Xbone. But at $399? I would get one next year if my wallet would allow it.



this is good news!! that means the PS4 will win by a landside!!! :p
