Will Xbox One overtake PS4 lifetime consoles Sales in North America?

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Will Xbox One overtake PS4 lifetime consoles Sales in North America?

I feel like the PS4 has more early hardcore adopters than the X1, worldwide-wise anyways. Microsoft has PLENTY of room to boost their sales, especially since PS4's price is just barely enough for Sony to make money off of. PS4 can't do price drops or they'll be selling at a loss. The X1 can sell at $249-299 if they ever plan to make a Kinect-less bundle, or they can do more price cuts on their current SKU. Even then, if Microsoft sells their consoles at a loss price, they are already making a fortune off of XBLive.. which they have room for improving that as well.

Well, Microsoft said they would, and there is no reason to doubt them.

Titan fall wont push 250k in US. Thats boarderline delusional there. Maybe it will be 250k WWtotal for the week meaning about 200k push but I wouldnt jold my breath on that either. Also, your assuming Ps4 wont sell another unit which is crazy.

More early adopters because its more appealing. Thats all. If MS didnt goof so much and made all the right moves like Sony then theyd be closer (with sony still winning obviously). As for your price speculation, thats just utter nonsense



If Xbox One can win NA Microsoft should be pleased. Titanfall will definitely help

Nope.



This reminds me of January, you know when Xbox One was outselling PS4 in US?

And then reality hit, and PS4 outsold XB1 almost 2:1 in US.

Yeah. I think the X1 will beat the ps4 in Titanfall's launch week. But I suspect the release of Infamous in the following week will see the ps4 take back the lead. At this stage both games have similar preorders and I guess with the ps4's slight advantage in numbers, this will help it more.



I say we will know the most likely generation winner for USA in June. Though if it's still close it may take at least another year and at least one price cut for each console to be sure. So is it possible? yes. But PS4 staying ahead seems more likely.

I don't know about June. I personally don't think we'll be completely sure until Uncharted and Halo 5 release. They're the real system sellers for Sony and Microsoft and will have a huge impact on the console race in NA.
