Xbox One will win his gen?

No, you are crazy! 138 30.20%
 
PS4 for the Win! 211 46.17%
 
Nah it's the Wii U who will win this gen! 41 8.97%
 
Definitely the Xbox One! 67 14.66%
 
Total:457

XBOne would need something drastic and unexpected to come along to win. Its price is far too high, and it doesn't have the XB360 advantage of launching early. Objectively one would say Wii U would be the favorite due to the early launch and lowest price, as well as being the follow up to the market leader. But PS4 has the benefit of late-gen PS3 momentum (due to the unprecedented mid-gen switch of gamers from Wii to PS360), very strong third party support and the most power, while being priced well under XBOne. I see gamers flocking either to PS4 or Wii U due to their respective strengths, but XBOne is offering nothing other than existing 360 owners being able to keep their accounts. The One will need a $100 price cut within its first year just to match its main competition and stay relevant in the market. I see MS dramatically losing market share in the US, and not gaining any elsewhere. Most likely a distant 3rd place finish for One without a major shake up.

It's anyones guess at this point, the One could very well be the victor, they have the best conditions strategically if you review the 7th gen.
Sony lost massive amounts of marketshare while MS grew theirs amazingly and Nintendo is off to a horrible start despite winning the 7th gen.

I wouldn't fault anyone for thinking the One can actually pull this off.

crazy talk. last gen MS everything go for it. best situation possible. IT STILL LOSE.
this gen everything ps4 so MS not have chance. sorry.


In what way did it "lose"? The original Xbox didn't have too big of a fanbase, then the Xbox 360 grew the fanbase tenfold. That's an accomplishment in my book



probable but very unlikely



Around the Network

Only in America does the XBO stand a chance of beating the PS4. The XBO has almost no chance of winning Europe or Japan, and thus it has no chance of winning globally. Even with a one-year head start, a lower price, and a better online service for most of the generation, the 360 is only neck-and-neck with the PS3 worldwide. The 360 may have cleaned house in the U.S., but Europe remained PlayStation Land (the PS3 passed the 360 in LTD sales in the region in 2009), and the 360 failed to make an impact in Japan, where the PS3 outsold it six to one. That the PS3 has sold at least as many units in 7 years as the 360 has in 8, well, that's the real tortoise vs. hare race right there.

While the PlayStation brand has broad global appeal, the Xbox brand appeals mainly to Americans, and the U.S. is still where the brand does most of its business. Without the XBO having any of the advantages its predecessor had — it doesn't get a head start this time, it costs substantially more than the PS4, and Gold can no longer claim to be qualitatively superior to PSN due to PS+ — MS stands to lose more ground to Sony in Europe and will continue to have negligible sales in Japan. However, the XBO still has home field advantage in America. While it's looking like the PS4 might edge it out in the short term, if and when the XBO reaches price parity with the PS4, the race between the two will probably be very close. It's a toss-up really. However, that's still a far cry from the total dominance the 360 had over the PS3 in America, and if they don't have a convincing victory in America, they stand no chance of winning the generation as the PS4 will almost certainly dominate the rest of the world.



Being a stronger supporter of the XB1 vs the PS4, I would like to see the XB1 dominate. But, the realist in me sees that neither console will dominate.



It is near the end of the end....

And who will dominate? Wii U?

No one, and definitely not the WiiU.

The problem with your question is the word dominate.  To me, to dominate would mean that one console is selling 2 to 1 over another or atleast 60% to 40% of the market.

It seems obvious to me that M$ is surely giving up on smaller/poor countries with the XB1 during it's first 2 years.  THey will not hit a price point that works in those areas for at least that long.

Sony is pricing the PS4 to hit more markets and be successful.

Still, neither company will dominate.

I hope so!
