If they made their product as appealing as the apple products you mention they'd sell a lot more for that price.  You cant take an achievement away from the ps4 because it's rival didn't sell itself enough.  

 

This thread is a straight up comparison between #1 and #2 for 2015 in the USA.  There's no two ways about it.  If you want to not give credit to ps4 fair enough but you can't change the fact it's winning this comparison. 

Now you're comparing a PHONE to a dedicated handheld. No one would ever pay €700 for a dedicated gaming handheld. Or a console for that matter.

What I'm saying is everyone knew PS4 would outsell the 3DS in 2015.


Everyone didn't know.  A majority maybe but should that stop me making this compariso?  No. Because this is a sales forum and it's what we do.

According to you, we're talking about 2015. Yet you're talking about the DS and PS3? 

and like I said in the post you didn't reply to. The Vita is at 10 million in 4 years. Totally off-topic? Yes. Comparable to what you're doing? Also yes. 


You ignored why I brought that up. I brought it up to prove that playstation was David that gen and the DS goliath.  And with gen 8 playstation has slain goliath and become one. He asked for an explanation and i provided it.  

You're willing to talk about the DS, PS3, and iPhones in a "thread for PS4 and the 3DS in 2015" yet you don't want to talk about the Vita?

 

Because I'm itching to talk about the Vita.

PS4's success has nothing to do with the 3DS's failure to sell as much as the DS.

PS4 isn't responsible for Nintendo's woes this gen. They didn't slay Nintendo. Smartphones and poor decisions on Nintendo's part "slayed" the 3DS and Wii U.

You want to see this in terms of a war between Nintendo and Sony but there honestly isn't one (besides the 3DS and Vita that is).

I just told you he wanted an explanation for the David vs goliath saying.  I gave it.  What has the vita got to do with that?

They did because they went from below to above them.  I'm talking in relation to this comparison.  If you want me to strictly compare home consoles I can make a wii u vs ps4 2015 thread but I did this instead because it's about the 2 best selling consoles.

What do iPhones have to do with anything? What do PS3's and DS's have to do with anything? This is a 2015 sales thread. 

And I think the Vita deserves a mention too. It's probably the only thing the Vita deserves.

Samus brought up apple not me so I'll redirect those concerns to him. 

 

Leave the vita out of this please.  Read my opening posts.  This is ps4 vs 3ds 2015.

And? The reason why the 3DS is incapable of reaching the number of the DS has nothing to do with the success of the PS4.

The xbone is directly affected by the PS4, but not the 3DS.

The ps4 could of ended up the same with steam.  But it didn't they overcame the obstacles and sold their product.  This thread isn't about making exclusives.  It's about hard facts.  It's saying ps4 is #1 and 3ds is #2. 

 

For the record both are selling well hence the comparison.

Leave the Vita out of this? A 2015 thread?

Then I see no reason to talk about the DS and PS4. 

I remember Sony fans whining that you can't compare handhelds and consoles when Sony was losing. Suddenly, you can compare them now? 

This truly confuses me more than the fact the Vita is a failure.
