Prediction: Xbox One will outsell PS4 WW by Q1 2016

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Prediction: Xbox One will outsell PS4 WW by Q1 2016

I made a thread back in January stating that the X1 will carry US and Europe by Q1 2015. I was right about Microsoft cutting the price to 399$ and gaining more ground in the US and Europe.. But I was wrong about it completly outselling the PS4 and it seems unlikely that by Q1 2015 X1 will outsell PS4 in those regions. So I acknowledge that I was partially wrong. 

But allow me to make a new prediction which I'm certain will turn out to be true this time. I predict that by Q1 2016, Xbox One will outsell the PS4 in USA 3:1. in Europe 2:1. And Japan will be 1:1 ratio it can go either way.  Now before you leave a negative comment please let me explain why I think this will happen. the Xbox One has so many exclusive games coming out, Halo remastered, Halo 5, Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, Rise of the Tomb Raider etc. Those are AAA games that will do a lot of damage against the PS4. It is true that PS4 will have Uncharted 4 along with some decent Indie games but I doubt that it will be enough to compete with the Xbox One exclusives..  Now of course that alone will not make my prediction happen.. It would be absurd if i were to claim that. So on top of that Microsoft will bundle the console with FIFA 15/FIFA 16 with a reduced price in the European markets which will appeal to gamers there. And Call of Duty Bundles in the US where majority of Americans love playing COD games.  Those crazy bundle deals along with the exclusive games I mentioned will make my prediction accurate.  After all it's always about the games at the end of the day.  Please do not misunderstand me, I think the PS4 is an outstanding console. I'm not a hater at all, I own both consoles.  But I'm certain that my prediction will be accurate.

What do you think? Am I right?

UPDATE: You guys may disagree with me that is totally fine but there is no need for personal attacks, so keep it classy folks.  And as for as Destiny Bundle helping the PS4 it may be true in Europe but in America Bungie games are way more well known on Xbox and hence it will do better on Xbox One despite the bundle.



I trust no one, not even myself.

You are very very wrong.

In a single word: no.



                                                                                                                                            

Sorry but that's the only appropriate reaction considering that prediction and especially those ratios lol.



So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

You can't be serious, please, tell me that you're not serious when you're writing this. Your brain can't possibly see all these exclusives on X1 and only Uncharted 4 and some indies... Tell me this is a joke thread bro, this better be. Your prediction has 0% chance of happening, unless PS4 has 0 games released from now till 2016...

 

Edit: damn it, FIFA was even given for free at launch, did you see what it did?

PS4 has the same games and same quality exclusives and bundles, they even out each other.

It is what it is and Sony won, Sony always win baby



Can't wait until you make the " Prediction: Xbox One will outsell PS4 WW by Q1 2017" thread!

There's isn't even any need to explain this: Your prediction has a probability of 0% of coming true.



No. I'm afraid that won't happen. If you feel like missing out on anything since you sold your PS4 just buy a new if you have the money. I'll be waiting for you in The Last of Us MP. :D

The XB1 is doing fine. It doesn't have to outsell PS4 to avoid being dead/doomed.



Hehehe. You're joking right? And are you avare of every AAA exclusive the PS4 has?

You know this wont happen (at least I hope you do!)
