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


Yeah Xbox One doesn't deserve anything even thought it offers better multiplayer, games with better score, or games that value gameplay than cutscenes/interactive movies, totally undeserved by Xbox One.


1. Better multiplayer? Uhm, how so? Like the broken MP of Halo: MCC for ~half a year?

2. Games with better score? WAT. That's just false. XB1 has no exclusive with 90+ on meta. PS4 does have Bloodborne so your argument is invalid.

3. Gameplay over cutscenes/interactive movies. Now that is just a silly point I will not even try to decompose lol.

With ioi updating the hardware sales to mid-May in one sweep we now can see PS4 holding the majority of the market. One console hasn't dominated like that since PS2, I believe. Wii managed to hit ~49.5% at most iirc.

I think the Wii was still more impressive considering that every console that generation was doing well.

Not true. Both PS3 and 360 were doing pretty bad in their first years.

I think you couldn't do a post more wrong than this one, I'm sorry to say that.

Why does it offers better multiplayer? PS4 games sell better so they have larger online communities to play with. And if that was about the attacks we kept having last year, being the one everyone looks to makes it a fav target, but the hackers themselves said when they also took the live down with the ddos attack that it was a lot easier to take down the Live than the PSN. Either way this will be subjective so neither me nor you will actually prove a better one here.

Why does it has the best scores? Feel free to show me an XBO exclusive scoring over Bloodborne.

And the last statement must be pure trolling, 'cause I really hope you don't buy that ridiculous made up thing.

It's ok to like the XBO better, but come on, be reasonable when you make your posts so they won't end up like this one, it makes you seem a kind of people I don't think you would like to be.

I don't think you are understanding.

It isn't about hacking or who's online is more secure on Xbox or Playstation. I am talking about video games and what it offers.

Some of the games on PS4 are noticeably lower than Xbox One I never said it X1 has the highest rated games. One game(Bloodbourne) doesn't suddenly make other games low scores disappear.

My last statement is pure trolling? Could you say something else rather than using the word trolling, or give an explanation on why it's ridiculous or made up. You do realise that the PlayStation is known for their games that have graphics rather than gameplay , right? Games like the Order 1886 which has the visuals scored very low because how it lacks gameplay and focus on cutscenes. That game had so many that it's laughable and what the critics are pointing out, the Order 1886 just may well made the PlayStation more associated with cutscenes/movies more than ever so that I am not making up anything.

You do realize Ryse was a launch game on XB1, I hope. Let's just ignore that, though.

What did the Wii do to you? PS4 has 50%, thats pretty cool. The Wii jab was uncalled for though.

???

Wii is an object. I probably don't need to explain that objects don't think for themselves. What jab are you talking about? Wii never could hit 50% marketshare, that's the truth. Weekly threads were made when it increased its marketshare by 0.1% and predictions for when it would hit 50% but it never did.

What do you mean? Microsoft tried for 2 gens to break into the mainland European markets and Japan, and haven't done well. Its not Microsoft's fault for that.

..and the 360 sold very well in Europe which could've been a great foundation for further growth with the XB1.

With the XB1 though MS has done some weird things that have alienated a lot of European fans including very late launch (in some countries, including mine, the XB1 officially launched September 2, 2014 almost a year after the original NA launch), clearly low priority (they refer to Europe as "Tier 2") and features exclusive to NA (majority of apps, tv functionality, etc.).

Additionally, a lot of Europeans were put off by the requirement of Kinect that would record your reactions to commercials and sell them as information to companies and especially German consumers (the people that values privacy the most) were not comfortable with Kinect and Xbox One after the NSA leaks revealing NSA's backdoors in all of Microsoft's products.

Regarding rest of the world before the 180 MS never intended that the XB1 should work outside a few key countries so it almost seems like MS chooses not to sell well in these parts of the world.


    Totally owns.

    60%+ by the end of the gen, no doubt. WiiU won't last long and PS4 will always outsell XB1 easily.


    Just to clarify if it hasn't been already. For the PS4 to keep this percentage it has to keep selling at the rate of 2:1 vs the XBone+WiiU on average.

    Probably not that easy.


    Go on the homepage and look at the YTD numbers.

    Not at the beginning, and also the Wii cost $250.

    This only means two things. The PS4 had better inventory management in the same time frame and the 360 managed a much better head start than the WiiU. Nothing else.

    So tell me how was Driveclub at launch. A game that was suppose to be a launch title for the PS4 but was delayed several times but when it was released it was broken but a least you guys got it free...OH WAIT!!! it is delayed. Meanwhile we get Halo 3: ODST as compensation for free for those effective and if people want it they can just get it for $5 which is a steal
