Lol ship them to Europe... More xb shortage here than the us apparently



Around the Network

It's easy to find Xbox One here in France



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

 

Why pity the Xbox? It's selling well isn't? Especially considering Microsoft shot themselves in the foot.

Again, PS4 owners got lots of free digital games to choose from (Plus or otherwise). The best next-gen exclusive was free for Plus owners, for example.

Are the games for keeps or rental?

What kind of a question is that and why does it matter?

The fact Microsoft is able to sell 3.9 million in two months, with a 500 dollar console, and sony couldn't even sell half of that with the ps3 at 599, shows how strong the Xbox brand has become


I didn't know the PS3 launch was that worse. Really puts things into even more accurate perspective.



Around the Network

People asked me about PS4 digital games.

What I have from leaderboard or likes:

Warframe: > 601,731 players with 22 kills (I only can see my page ranking... so add the guys that played less and killed below 22)

Resogun: > 250k *the ranking just show the first 250k*

Contrast: > 30.5k likes *you can only like if you had the game*

Don't Starve: > 39.7k likes *you can only like if you had the game*

Blacklight Retribution Beta: 41.1k *you can only like if you had the game*

I can't check others games because I did't have them.

You can't definativly say that's the reason they are selling so much better tho. It could play a role sure but so could the lack of WiiU sales the pent up desire to move to next gen or the incredible launch line up. The reson I suggest its the reason I listed is the PS4 has also experienced outstanding sales. Has the PS brand also grown as much if not more?



I think Xbox sales are coming from Microsoft's advertising, and being in stock while the ps4 is not, many iffy 360 guys aren't going to say ooh let's wait for ps4 when they have the Xbox one starring at them

You keep them and all your data for as long as you have PS+.  The second you have it again, you can start right where you left off.  Please stop this "Doesn't own BS."  If I wanted to keep a game forever, I would have bought it at launch.  But I missed Vanguish for example a while ago, and I got to play through it and keep its trophies for free.

So, rental confirmed.

Also, lol @ "best next gen exclusive" being Resogun. Is that based entirely off of Metacritic? The game is being offered free for PS+ subscribers and was reviewed as such.
