Early during the seventh gen, the wii's competition was a console which had a 50% failure rate and a console which was overpriced. The PS4 competition is a console which has turned things round and is doing better than it's predessesor and a console which has great games but has somehow failed due to horrible marketing. You decide which console has/had the "real" competition.


Are you being serious? Still the Wii. The 360 still sold well. The PS3 still sold well enough. The Wii U is selling like shit. The XBO is barely coming back from selling like shit. Neither will come close to 80m like the PS360 did.

XBO has been ahead of 360 since it launched, though. PS3 launched at $600...come on, son. WiiU is at around $300. People just want PS4 more.

how?

Don't get me wrong, none of the actual consoles deserve to have 50% marketshare or sell 20+ million consoles in a year and a half. I would say the same thing if Xbox One or Wii U were in this situation. Al three consoles have major negative points, so I think having this amount of success is totally undeserved.

PS4 has negatives, no wait 'major' negatives? Such as?

Such as having to pay for the online and poor and few exclusive titles.

Yeah? April now matches up well with NPD due to the numbers being so late. Japan matches with MC/Famitsu.

Hmm ok. Shouldn't you be setting an example instead of doing what you dislike, then?

Considering what the competition offers, i guess so. But as a console i'd say it deserves it.


agreed, the compitition has less games, less diverse libraries, less features and less power. totally undeserved by PS4
