We all know that Sony, Microsoft & Nintendo are all gearing up to unleash their potential system seller game lineups, for the coming holiday season and the next 12 months there after.

The big guns will come out, battle lines will be drawn, names will be taken and bubble gum will be chewed. 

The game line ups and release dates will be two of the biggest deciding factors in who ultimately wins the battle of sales.

There can and will only be 1 winner.

If Sony plays its cards right, the Playstation 4 will continue to dominate the sales charts between Nov 2014- Nov 2015, and here is how.

- Uncharted 4 Nov 2014

- God Of War Mar 2015

- Little Big Planet Aug 2015

- Gran Turismo Nov 2015

There are tons of other games sprinkled in between these 4 major releases too.  Already with a 3 Million unit lead on M$ and a 1+ Million lead on Nintendo, Can either Microsoft or Nintendo compete if Sony releases this big 4 within Nov 2014 -Nov 2015 ?

Let's be serious here.  When has Sony actually had a good E3 and by good E3, I mean not worse than both Microsoft and Nintendo? I'm not talking about winning simply because of a price announcement, etc. I'm talking about winning E3 because of all the games. Every single E3 Sony has showed the least amount of interesting "new" games.. On E3 2012 half of the entire conference was Wonderbook, something that was a complete waste because not even the people it was aimed towards wanted it..



This is probably going to be quoted to death, but unless every PS3 exclusive pulls an Infamous and sells better because PS4 is selling better, those bottom 3 IP's are all on a decline.

Also it wouldn't make much sense to blow their biggest load in 12 months when it could be spread out through the gen and sprinkle the gaps with new IPs and lesser known exclusives.

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

To be honest, I don't think LBP is really as comparable saleswise



I think it will be more like that...

- DriveClub Sep 2014
- The Order: 1866 Nov 2014
- Uncharted 4 Mar 2015
- Little Big Planet July 2015
- God Of War Oct 2015
- Gran Turismo Dec 2015

Great.

And I'm not adding the new IP from Guerrilha and Bend yet.

Can't be too sure if Gran Turismo is on a decline or not.  GT6 is the same as GT5 with more cars and a few more tracks, runs at worse framerate sometimes, better framerate other times, and has online.  It's really a marginal difference and Sony made the mistake of releasing it on last gen when people were ready to go to next gen so it got overshadowed by that as well.

Halo 3 - 12 million

Halo 4 - 9 million - On A Decline

And Halo 5 is all Microsoft is Really Betting On Right Now.  At Least In Terms of What Could Change The Tide In the States.

And With Xbox One Install Base Looking Low, I Wouldn't Be Suprised if Halo 5 Does 4-5 Mil Max. Can't Do Over 9 Mil if there are not 9 Mil Xbox One's In the Wild.

Curious what makes people think GT7 will be in 2015, 2 years after GT6.

Because GT6 was a 3 year dev cycle on established hardware. So logically GT7 would take another 3 years. But then again its newer, more powerful hardware, so it could be 4 years.

LBP maybe, but Saying GOW and GT are on a decline is completely disingenuous. Ascension was a prequel/spin off that focused on multiplayer, and its performance is in no way representative of the series as a whole. GT6 released on the PS3 RIGHT AFTER the PS4 launched, which is obviously going to negatively affect its sales potential. If a mainline Halo game released exclusively for the 360 right after the X1 launch, you can be damn sure it would see much lower sales than previous installments. But it would be utterly moronic of someone to use that as evidence of franchise decline.
