Forums - Sales Discussion - Should we be umimpressed with XB1's 1 million sales, or super amazed with PS4 sales?

Tagged games:

Before anyone gives me shit, let me start off by saying that the 1 million sales in 24 hours by the XBone is quite impressive, but hear me out here. The console launched in 13 countries vs the PS4 launching in only 2, with both selling about the same number within the same time frame. If you average it out, the XBone technically only sold about 77K units per country, vs PS4's 500K + per country. Both had amazing launches, but it's clear that PS4 is outselling the XBone by a large margin, when the console releases in it's other 31 territories in the coming months. I honestly don't find it impossible for the PS4 to be outselling by a 3 to 1 ratio in less than 1/6 of the regions, both of which are arguably XBOX's strongest territories. Not to mention of course, you can still find XBone's in retailers atm, but pretty much every retailer is out of PS4 until March. Think about it for a sec; either XBone is doing just okay or PS4 is doing amazingly. Thoughts?

world wide its not even going to be close, but should you try and mention that or argue that now, there are a few individuals around here who will rally pretty hard against you. Its kind of sad they cant see the difference between the launches.

I bet with padid that By end of 2014 the PS4 worldwide Lifetime sales will be larger than WiiU world wide Lifetime sales by 4 million. He wins if the gap is small than 4 million.

Xbox1 is doing fine, PS4 is doing amazingly. That is all.

1m units WW is still a great number and would have been a record if the PS4 didn't exist.

PS4, if it launched in 13 countries it would have sold way more than just 1 million. That 2.3 million gamers waiting for PS4 could have put the total over 3 million in 24 hours if supply was available.

But isn't that what these first months are all about? Who has more supply?

We should be unimpressed by both because the first adopters are usually the hardcore sony and microsoft fans who get the console first. We should atleast wait until janurary to make judgement about their sales but I suspect that the PS4 will cannibalize the xbox market because all it comes down to is the $100 price difference.

curl-6 was right and I was wrong about Watch Dogs on Wii U

Selling one million consoles in a day world wide is an amazing feat. If the PS4 didn't launch last week it would be crazy news for a console to sell that many that quickly. But, the sales of the PS4 have been astronomical. Certainly unlike anything the video game world has ever seen.

impressed with Xbox one sales, considering everyone was saying it would flop because of the media hate.. and the horrible start..

1 million in 13 countries vs
1 million in 2 countries is a big difference though
