If the people choose Xbox One S over PS4 or PS4 Pro SOLELY for Video Playback reasons then they are basically choosing Movies Resolution > Game Resolution (the usual 900p vs 1080p and even bigger gap between XB1 and PS4 Pro)

It's called GAMING CONSOLE I thought? I mean if you love Xbox exclusives, then surely you are going for Xbox, but choosing Blu-Ray quality over GAMES Quality, WHAT?!

Xbone isn't just a game console though. The reason it's called Xbox One, is because it's an all-in-one for input 1. TV, streaming, apps, gaming all in one device. Now it's gone further and includes 4K Blu-ray.

they put CD on ps1, DVD on ps2 and blu ray on ps3 to win the battle of HD-DVD toshiba. 

1.CD and DVD support had zero impact on winning the battle for HD media.

2. Bluray was important because that was how game software was being produced to be used on the PS3.

3. PS4 is, and will only, use bluray for game software. They aren't going to randomly adopt UHD mid-gen.

 

Comparisons to the PS3 make little sense. It was different time and the media of choice was important to the overall use of the device. Streaming is more important now than it ever was. And PS4 is still using bluray as the core media for gaming software.



Yeah!
They only mangaed to get 100k difference.......... Not good enough for a new hardware.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Worldwide sales are what matters.

I agree, but the inclusion of the new Blu-ray seems to have made a big difference. Ps4 lost 3 or 4 months in a, row in the US.

Definitely dropped the ball on this one. Most people were not expecting the Slim refresh to feature UHD blu-ray playback but most certainly did expect UHD blu ray play back on the Pro model which is considered a premium product. I might be in the minority but if it featured an UHD blu ray player I would have bought one on day one along with a 4K TV. But as of yet, I'm waiting for TV prices to come down further and technology(HDR and OLED) to improve.



Disagree.... Streaming is the future.... Physical media is falling off

That is true. However, I want Xbox to lose here too because they have done shady things in my opinion.

Yeah you are right. MS made an all in one device and sony went with a near laser focus on a gaming device........

look at all the good that did for MS.

But seriously, what happens then if sony releases a $50 4K bluray add on that works across every existing PS4 sku?



huh?

The Ps4 has been above the Xbox1 for weeks now on Amazon. If that's where you're basing your assumptions. Sure the Xb1 has more bundles on the top 100 but who knows what the sales difference are between the two. Considering the fact that the Ps4 bundle has actually jumped in the top 100 yearly charts on Amazon and even surpassed Uncharted 4 then that means the Bundle is selling WAY MORE than any other consoles and even games on Amazon. It jumped to number 9 in the yearly charts, YEARLY. And it did this jump this December so that means it sold a crap ton more this month.

And what's the highest position for the Xbox one on the yearly charts? 70th. Despite all of the discounts and such it only managed to get to 70th in the yearly charts. That means it's not selling as much and the other items it is outselling in the daily charts aren't selling as much either.

So yeah, you're wrong. Sorry. (Purely basing on Amazon charts)

Or are you trolling or something?
