PS4 vs Xbox1: total global sales by the end of 2015

Xbox 1 will outsell the PS4
PS4 will outsell the Xbox1 by a small margin
PS4 will outsell the Xbox1 by 1.5 to 1 margin
PS4 will outsell the Xbox1 by 2 to 1 margin
PS4 will outsell the Xbox1 by greater than 3 to 1 margin

Regardless of the debate what the general public thinks will be the more attractive console, it's pretty much a given that PS4 will outsell Xbox1 in 2013 because Xbox1 is launching in fewer places compared to PS4.  Probably also in 2014, Xbox1 will still have a manufactoring shortage compared to the PS4, so the PS4 should still outsell the Xbox1.

Here in the US, it's debatable whether PS4 will outsell Xbox1 (although the presale numbers seem to suggest that PS4 will outsell Xbox1 here in the states).  Outside the US, Xbox1 isn't even being sold in some countries, so PS4 should greatly outsell the Xbox1.  2 to 1?  Or even 4 to 1?

By the 2nd half of 2014 and thru 2015, the supply for either systems shouldn't be an issue, so the more attractive system (whether because of exclusive games, kinect, or etc) should outsell the other.  But this point the Xbox1 has some catching up to do.

Wii U out sells them combined on the strength of NEW NEW NEW Super Mario Bros to be released sometime in 2015...or 2016 give or take a year

PS4 will sell more 1.5 to 1 against the Xbox One.

PS4 1.5 to 1 over XBox One.

They'll both outsell the WiiU.

Prediction (made in 2010) - The PS3 will eventually pass the Wii in lifetime sales. 

Prediction (made in 2010) - The Wii will not come close to the PS2 in lifetime sales 

I was thinking it's about even in the US. However, I think it'll be more 3 to 1 in PS4's favor outside the US.

Overall, I think globally it'll be 2 to 1 in PS4's favor.

The OP hit it on the head, the PS4 will outsell the XBOne for the first year by default of manufacturing. After that, things will get a lot closer. to follow the OP's timeline of the end of 2015, it will be 1.2 to 1 with the PS4 in the lead. If M4 gets lucky and the Kinect becomes some type of sensation, then it will be reversed.

PS4 game pre-orders also seem to suggest that PS4 will outsell Xbox1 out of the gate in the US.


PS4 will sell at least 2 to 1 on Xbox One. In Europe it will be more than 4 to 1 probably

PSP, PS3, Vita, 3DS, Wii U and PS4.

PS4 will outsell the X1 by 1.5 to 1 in America (although it could be even), 3 to 1 in Europe, 500 to 1 in Japan and 2 to 1 in other territories.

I agree with that.
