Xbox One to Beat PS4 November NPD and in the Future From Now On (in 2014)

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Xbox One to Beat PS4 November NPD and in the Future From Now On (in 2014)

I can agree that some of the months XOne may win over PS4, but I think there is a little more to think about. Globally I only see PS4 stretching the lead, which in turn will get more developers to want to make games for PS4.

Also, globally PS4 software has been outselling the XOne software for all multiplatformers.

Also, with the added horsepower of the PS4 I have seen the better resolution and frame rates and some better features from PS4. Also, I have seen multiple developers stating how that PS4 has the better power.

I have already seen a few games that are only being made for PS4 or PC because of the XOne indie developer clause that says if the game is already on a different system, then they cant make it for XOne.

With all of these items combined I think that it will make more and better games come out for the PS4 as time goes on and more PS4's will get sold in the US and Globally.

Points?

OT: Yeah, Kinect Sports will be the game that'll make droves of casuals buy the $450-500 game machine and thus help the X1 easily win the Spring and summer months.../sarcasm

PS4 won January and barely won February

-Xbox One will win March because of Titanfall and price cuts

-Xbox One will win April because of Kinect Sports Rivals and the fact the PS4 will have caught up with demand 100%

I feel that Microsoft has/will have a much stronger library that will apeal to the most gamers this year

Titanfall+Halo+Forza+Kinect Sports rivals+Windows Apps+Quantom Break+Multiplats+Unnannouced games will beat PS4's lineup I imagine (Playstation doesn't have Huge hits in the US besides Uncharted really, most playstation exclsuive games only sell 1-2 million in US while Halo can sell 6 million+) Uncharted is not coming this year and GT7 is not coming either. Last of Us remake will sell decent but people just bought the game on ps3.

-It's tradition to buy Madden, Call of Duty, etc on Xbox Platforms in the US

-Microsoft has better advertising

-Microsoft will have more casual appeal once kinect games and apps start rolling out

I See no way the PS4 has a chance in the United States against the Xbox One especially now that Sony Charges to play online and Xbox One has a blue ray player built in (no advantage to getting a Playstation this time)

Wait....PS4 will start losing because Sony will finally start making enough to meet demand? It hasn't been meeting demand and has been beating the XBone! What makes you think that when demand is met, sales will go down? If demand is at a 10 and supply is at a 7, when 7 gets to 10, it gets bigger.


You're thinking of it completely wrong. Supply is 7 and demand is 7 currently. Next month supply is still 7 (because they are not increasing production rates) and demand is 6 because the market is getting somewhat more saturated.

Your senario would be true if PS4 has a huge gamne coming or price cuts. There won't really be an extra reason to own a ps4 in april opposed to march...

And yet, Sony just said that demand was still high and the PS4 will be supply constrained until the summer. I was under the impression that "supply constrained" meant the supply wasn't able to keep up with demand. But I guess I was wrong....

I agree.

-Xbox One will win April because of Kinect Sports Rivals and the fact the PS4 will have caught up with demand 100%

Maybe April, but in May the PS4 has MLB 14 and Bound By Flame and maybe Planetside 2, with Last Of Us maybe in the summer, the next few NPD months will be very close.

-It's tradition to buy Madden, Call of Duty, etc on Xbox Platforms in the US

It was tradition to buy it on Xbox 360 instead of PS3, but now the tide is slowly turning for this gen. Just look at the preorder gap for games like Watch_Dogs and Destiny. And with COD being rumored to have the PS4 as its lead platform, it will definitely grab FPS fans.

-Microsoft has better advertising

However Sony is definitely stepping up their game with advertising compared to last gen.

-Microsoft will have more casual appeal once kinect games and apps start rolling out

I think price and general 'group' thinking is more of a factor that sways casual gamers, and the PS4 has the advantage here.

Bear in mind also that many core gamers will choose the ps4 over its future prospects, such as PSnow, Morpheus, and solely on the fact that they have built the reputation of being the company which produces the most varied titles, spanning from New IPs to classics to remakes to indies and so on.



Kinect Sports Rivals will flop just like Wii Fit U flopped. The casuals moved on from Kinect a long time ago.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Um haven't you heard? Even though it never gave PS3 a week over week boost when it released, apparently MLB The Show is a "huge system seller". It comes out in May, right? Seems Xbone is shitbaked in the US in May.

It might not be a huge seller but it could move some systems for the baseball crowd. The franchise is niche but loyal.

Considering Titanfall has hammered in the last nail in the coffin of the PS4 in NA, I completely agree.


What coffin? Did I miss a funeral?

I would say this is a fantasy thread... one that ignores all the plusses on the PS4 side and highlight all the percieved benefits of the XB1... I came here to have some fun reading posts like yours.

Lol I think he was joking because Titanfall hammering the nail in PS4's coffin is something Toastboy claimed many times would happen.
