Well it makes more sense because most posters on Vgchartz live in the US/Canada. So there is nothing wrong with celebrating a victory where you live.

Yet we have American Sony fans championing PS4 sales in France/Spain, etc. Unless you have European citizenship in those countries, celebrating foreign victories makes far less sense when your own backyard is losing.

X1 getting worked in Europe will mean 3rd partys favor it.  Which will mean PS4 gets better versions and more better addons timed exclusivity and so on.

So celelbratin a tiny win is pointless when losing ww affects your gaming, or do you not care Bungie is favoring PS and many devs are likely to follow.

K that's nice. Just saying a American celebrating a American win makes sense. American celebrating a win in France = not so much.

Celebrating a Superball win means what whenl compared to the guy celebrating winning the World Cup.

Cool story. Celebrate where you live > celebrating where you don't (while losing where you do)

You go celebrate a corporation wining sales for a month in one market.

Ill go enjoy my games lol.

I am glad you applied successfully for your passport :)

Ouch, nice self-own. Since the best exclusive PS4 has is a FPS which COD or BF4 are better anyway. Clearly people buying PS4 are buying it for the console and not the games (yet). I can't enjoy games too??? (aww shucks)

We also have european Xbox fans championing the NPD numbers so there's that.

UK colonized America so its chill. Americans didn't colonize the UK or France. History is on our side ;)

"Cool story. Celebrate where you live > celebrating where you don't (while losing where you do)", you're kinda contradicting yourself here ;)

Also it's not only users from the UK

Well I was joking, since America is the UK's "spiritual home" or "former home" :P. Also the cultures really do borrow from eachother.

But if you choose to venture outside UK, then you are talking about a very, very, small niche on Vgchartz. Most users here are from english speaking countries, but again mostly NA. nm

I actually do have a Euro passport, and a Canadien one.  Its a big big world not just murica.

Cool COD, they one that is better on PS4 then X1 nice.  Are you playing on a crt, hey maybe next X1 COD will do 1080p.

Someone tell me cause I don't feel like reading through the posts.

How many Sony fans played the worldwide card > America card? Because this happens every time Sony loses a NPD. I bet Ethomaz played the "supply" card and took random pictures of X1's in a store.


You're good. A fair few, but surprisingly people focused on MS actually lying about how many units they sold. 

And it was on the second page of 50 the picture of XOnes from Ethomaz I do believe.



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

It's going to be interesting seeing Nintendo and Sony forecast the 14'-15' year. I don't buy that PS3 is going to get particularly close to 100m anymore, it's going to be down by 50% in most markets in 2014-2015 after ending up around 85m or 86m shipped in the fiscal year, and Wii is going to end up right around 101m-102m. X360 will be down a ton too globally in 2014. PS3 should be at 90m ish in March 2015, 92m ish in March 2016, and then die out right around 93m. X360 will probably get to about 90m

The old systems will still be somewhat important - the Wii SW forecast for 13'-14', amidst all Nintendo's downgrades, was upped from 20m to 26m. PS3 will be bigger than PS4 in FY 14'-15' for SW even though PS4 will kick PS3's ass for HW, and I'm not fully convinced yet that Wii U sw will be bigger than Wii sw in 2014-2015, but it should probably be around 30m, with Wii sw around 10-15m. X360 software will remain much larger than X720 software in 2014-2015 as well.



People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.

When there are more laws, there are more criminals.

- Lao Tzu

If we look at things a little more logical, MS and Sony can only sell the consoles that they can make. BOTH consoles started production around the same time and BOTH consoles will have the similar resources to make the console. So it doesn't matter what markets you are in but overal sales. MS pumped more consoles in the US because that's where they will sell the most (a lot less demand in europe) while Sony has strong demand in both Europe and USA.

After 2 months it's stupid to compare any sales. We knew that Sony and MS have strong fanbases and will snap up the initial consoles made. The real test is how many weeks they will have high demand and what side will the neutrals and casuals will take. Early indications says that the PS4 will widen the gap in all terriotries once supply doesn't play a factor.

Actually the best exclusive PS4 has is Resogun, which destroys anything in the XBO library. 

Now if PS4 had the supply to meet demand they would have beaten the XBO. It's only 50k behind and the PS4 is sold out everywhere. You can deny it all you want but it's true. 



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!
