After checking Amazon and Gamestop again, PS4 is at #6 and #48, respectively. In contrast, the X1-only SKU is at #71 and #90, respectively. Still not a positive outlook for the X1.

Epic cotdamn bumpage! lol. Thread title can remain and probably be true... but only with the word "soon" omitted.


I see a lot of people, including those in the gaming press! who seem to express that opinion, as if MS was somehow bound to overtake the PS4 with the XB1... The reasonins being that 1 - Resolution/FPS/Specs does not matter (doh, why even bother with a new console then?) 2 - Sony's game line up is somehow "dry" despite the PS4 having literally TWICE as many games announced for the remaining of the year...

Add to this that even the very week Titanfall released it sold less than the PS4, in the US, then came the amazing deals... there was no avail, weekly sales were still closer to those of the PS3 than those of the PS4...

Now the kinectless 399 system, it's the same price as the PS4, but the console is now just a weaker console that cost the same as the stronger machine with twice as many games (a lot of multi-platform titles run better on PS4 as well.. in the "worst case" you get parity between the two).

As far as the big AAA titles for the remaining of the year, we will see, but I can see Driveclub going head to head with Forza Horizon 2 and whatever else will be announced at E3 from both companies (Hint, Halo remake will not have more effect than The Last of Us remake...).

Hey I am still waiting for a reply from you. 

With a 27% boost for Xbox One thanks to Watch Dogs in the US on May 31st we have the numbers at 31 k also represents the highest Xbox One has sold during May.

The smallest PS4 sold in the same month is 50K. So adding 15K to the highest number of Xbox One in may that is 46K.

Since you have a master in computer science I think it is fair to say that 50K>46K

Now if by 15k increase you meant outselling the PS4 in the US by 15k , then that will put the number of the Xbox One around 65K. To reach that number Xbox One would need a 100% boost.The second week of Titanfall with bundle available + price cut + free Titanfall, Xbox One only manage to sell 60k. On the third week of Titanfall with still price cut+free Titnfall, Xbox One manage to sell 45k...

So please enlight me with your master in computer science 

Also can you check if the percentage of gap is still 13%?? I am guessing that is an easy calculation for you. 

 

marketshare wise in the US X1 is 45 % while PS4 is 55 % (between PS4 and X1 only, not including Wii U)

This is still extremely close and the price cut will definitely recover X1 sales in the USA.

So are you saying that 55% of 6.3 Millions is close to 45% of 6.3 Millions?

And it needs 15k more weekly to reaches it soon? Now I wonder what percentage 15k represent out of 6.3 Millions. Using simple math logic 15K only represent 0.2% of 6.3 Millions. You are the one with the master degree, maybe you can make more sense out of those numbers.

And what happened to the easy calculation of the gap percentage?? That should be easy for you to compute !!

If you are having trouble getting the gap percentage, I will post it later for you



This is one hell of a thread! I am bookmarking it!

Good grief, is this thread still active?



When your next gen console (Xb1) sells less than your competitors last gen console(ps3) every other week it's time to admit there is a serious problem...

When I have originally made my prediction it was the case, I will adjust it further after the first 2 or 3 weeks of seeing X1 numbers after the price cut.

55 % is by far no domination from PS4, and is easily reversable especially this early in the generation.

And once again, you glance over other people's posts who already have debunked your so-called arguments, like this one: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6374595



The problem is, Xbone is being killed slowly by asphyxiation. It will only go downhill from here because multiplats are going to kill it. Sony owns the advertising, has better res/fps/specs, gets exclusive content for said multiplats, and has the numbers advantage. More people you want to play with will likely own a PS4, so if you want to play online against them, you need a PS4. This is the source of a downward spiral.
