I knew that since 2006. PS3 in its early years had no business selling as much as it did with all that bad PR. Only after MGS4 did it really earn its numbers imo

What about the 360? did it deserve to sell what it did with the ring of death ?

It actually had games though. It sold in spite of it...people made the choice to rebuy. 

Until MGS4, PS3 was overpriced, PSN was notably lacking, and top rated exclusives in 2006-2007 had nothing on 360s. It coasted on PS2 brand power, which was notably, pretty huge.

*Anecdotal* 

But I knew multiple people that bought 2/3 Xbox 360's due to hardware failures, so they could be a lil inflated. 

Also it was the only option due to being out for an entire year ebfore PS3/Wii, it got a good bit of word of mouth to start too.



PS4 and PC gaming

 

PC Specs:
AMD Ryzen 9 3900x
Zotac Nvidia RTX 2070 Super
32GB DDR4 Corsair Vengence Ram 3200 mhz
1TB Samsung Qvo SSD
Corsair Spec-Delta Case
Asus ROG B450-F Motherboard

The only reason I got into Nintendo in 1988 was because Atari lost all of their luster.

The only reason I ever got into PlayStation was because the N64 didn't have anything worth playing that I didn't already own in 1997.

The only reason I ever got into Sega was because the PS2 was impossible to find in the year 2000.

The only reason I got into Xbox in 2007 was because PS1 and PS2 broke all the damn time and I didn't want to spend $600 on a company that had a history of being defective (little did I know...).

But in every instance that I tried a new company, I was blown away by his awesome the hardware and library was. From that point on, I bought everything they made.

Is this worldwide? If so that 1/4 for series X compared to 1/3rd for PS5 is pretty good.

Probably globally in USA only. Xbox doesn't exist outside USA and UK. I was talking about Xbox to some people in France, and they were thinking I was talking about a Live Box or something.

And no need to be a genius to know that FFVII Remake got the most loyal fan for any game ever.

Several million of Xbox consoles were sold in France. I really doubt that the majority of French gamers doesn't know what an Xbox is, even if they decided to get a PlayStation instead.

Most game trailers and ads for multiplatform games also include Xbox.

Did you actually believe what I have said about the Live Box thing ?

Yeah speaking as someone whose first 360 did the Chernobyl thing, I wouldn't have bought another one if it was most systems, the reason I took the plunge again was that it was just so damn good it was worth the risk to me. 





I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Well, they are the most consistent.

With Xbox, their brand took a hit with the X1's dodgy launch and how poorly their PR team handled it. There's hardly and notable games on the system either, sadly.

Nintendo are incredible, but their audience seem to be more casual than anything else. I think the Wii U's poor run showed that.

And the vita didn't show that about Sony too?



Nah that survey is wrong.

Nintendo fans are loyal. They the only crazy enough ones to buy a console for 1st party games only lol. Also look at second hand games market. Even the Wii with some 20million plus sale games, hardly saw them on second hand market. With the other two so many second hand copies of games that come out only a month prior.

Imagine if Sony lost all their 3rd party support to XBOX. How much of that crowd would swing towards XBOX?
