Will PS4 get through 2014 as the highest selling console every week of the year?

Yes 140 50.72%
 
No - Xb one will beat it at least once 55 19.93%
 
No - Wii U will beat it at least once 21 7.61%

XBOX ONE have sold 100K on Cina, so, no...

Week of 4 Octoer XBOX ONE will outsell PS4.

Shipped



I don't see why not.

XB1 Chinese launch: 100k shipped. Even if they sold, say, 60k, it won't be enough to put it on top WW.

MCC: Mostly popular in the US and UK, and it's an HD collection. Not gonna be enough.

Black Friday: Not only has the XB1 have to outsell the PS4 that day, it has to outsell it by enough to surpass PS4 sales during the rest of the week AND surpass PS4's advantage in the rest of the world. Not gonna happen.

Smas Bros.: The percentage jump will be huge, but baseline sales are so poor that it won't be enough.

So yeah, barring a $100 price cut for the XB1, I see the PS4 being on top for the rest of the year.

What the hell!?! This thread shoulda been locked because it doesn't have the poll. How did a double thread get created, was it when I created the poll?

I haven't checked the charts, but which week did Wii lose in 2008?



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

Its Sony. Given their adept history in the gaming industry and the high appeal and marketability of their upcoming games it only makes sense. After all their first two gens they set standards as it were before the Wii.

Another thing that got lost in the doube thread debacle. I put this sentence into the original original OP, but it got lost in this duplicate thread.

Wii almost made it in 2008, but it got pipped by PS3 on 14 June 2008.

It's now in the OP.

It might be able to but only after adjustments. I'm pretty sure VGChartz will show XB1 above PS4 on CHina launch week but I bet they're under tracking PS4 by a lot.

hahahahahahahaha No.

The PS4 will not dethrone the PS2. Gaming was at it's peak in that era, now it's slowing down...a lot

Did you even read the OP?



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!
