Forums - Sales Discussion - Will the PS3 be the best selling console in 2014?

Which console will sell the most in first half of 2014?

PS3
360
XB1
PS4
WiiU

With all these threads asking when will the PS4/XB1 pass the WiiU, I keep seeing the argument from some that the PS4 and XB1 will have low sales coming out of the holidays.  Similar to the WiiU sales.  

They argue that there is not enough value in next gen to rocket them in sales.  I have seen the statement made that the PS4 and XB1 will indeed be outpaced by their current gen counterparts for at least some time.  They use the PS2 out selling the PS3 and 360 at the beggining of the generation as evidence that it will likely happen again.

So I ask you VGC community.  Do you think it is true that the PS4 and XB1 will stumble in the beggining of 2014 and will be outsold by the PS3?  If so how long will that last for?



Will save the WiiU: Pikmin 3, price cut, 3D Mario, WiiFit U, 3rd party support (CoD, AC, Batman, Watch Dogs), Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros U. another price cut.

Will Save the Xbox One:  Titanfall, price cut, next Gears, next Halo, another price cut.

Mario Kart 8, nuff said.

Nah, PS4 and Xbox One will do very well next holiday, PS3 is only gonna do 7m~ next year.

 

I am going to assume you are talking about home consoles only.

I don't know- PS4 has a shitload of hype - i see it selling shitloads. Until i see how the market reacts to the PS4 - i think it is still safe to predict the last gen will have it beat - but i wouldn't count the PS4 out.

I am going out on a limb and say that 2014 will be a tight race between the PS4, One and Wii U - with the PS4 coming first followed by one then the Wii U but still be outsold by the ps3/360


Most anticapted game - Mario Kart 8....

PS3 will sell the most by the year's end. It's a little harder to tell who's going to take the cake through the first half though. I see both PS4 and Wii U having a chance.

I think PS3, PS4 and Wii U all have a strong chance of being the brst selling home console next year.

When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

PS4 will beat it I reckon, There maybe a few weeks where the PS3 is ahead but its it.

On going bet with POE: Who will have most hardware sold at the end of 2014, PS4 or WiiU http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=5944837

no gen ran its course and there was no real dominate console like ps2 era, next gen HW (PS4XB1) should easily outpace last gen

the only stumbling is if theres supply issues

Dont think so.

Wii U, Xbox One and PS4 will all sell more than PS3 next Year methinks.

Why isn't the 3DS a choice in the poll? I believe it will continue to be the number 1 selling console next year if Nintendo can keep pumping out these gems for it.
