Forums - Sales Discussion - Do you think that PS4 could reach 10m before X1 reaches 5m WW?

Will PS4 reach 10m before X1 reaches 5m world wide sales?

PS4 reaches 10m before X1 reaches 5m 114 32.02%
 
X1 reaches 5m before PS4 reaches 10m 190 53.37%
 
It will happen around the same time 52 14.61%
 
Total:356

I can't believe that 36% of the people that voted actually believe that the PS4 can sell 4 million units faster than the X1 can sell 1.3 million. There is no chance that PS4 sells 10 million faster than X1 sells 5 million. With Titanfall out now X1 will still taking back NA slowly. I can see the PS4 selling 8 million faster than the X1 sells 5, but that's about it.

Yeah, if Titanfall really boosts the sales of X1 that MS hopes for, they could see a 1 million month. And then the gap to 5 million for X1 would be so narrow that the PS4 could perhaps only reach 8 or 9 million.

I feel more sure that X1 will reach 5m, but still not 100%. Will be interesting to see what InFamous can do for the PS4 sales and also how the available stock will be.


how in the hell you see that happening ?

"if Titanfall really boosts the sales of X1 that MS hopes for, they could see a 1 million month"

Is all I said. ;)

But to be honest, yeah I sort of think I could see that happening too. 500-800k, sure, not too unrealistic. If the above is met by MS expectations. And the X1 overall sells as it has or even more, excluding the Titanfall hype. Because as we all know there are a lot of X1 in stock, so there's always a possibility. But more realisticly I would say less than 500k.



My guess would be the X1 will be at around 6.5 million by the time the PS4 hits 10 million.



 

The PS5 Exists. 


Is PS4 going to sell ~4 million by the time X1 does 1.3? That seems unlikely.

Also, bundling games with the X1 should give it a boost.

What game ever has balooned hardware up to that extent ?



The PS4 had three times as many units to go before it hits 10 million as the XBO does before it hits 5 million, but it isn't outselling the XBO 3:1 globally. So, most likely the XBO will get to 5 million before the PS4 gets to 10 million. I think the XBO will hit 5 million around late July or early August while the PS4 will hit 10 million sometime in September.

Probably games like Halo and Pokémon would be my guess. Perhaps GTA?

Will be interesting to see how many consoles Titanfall can move in the end.

Well, if you factor in the boost the last few weeks leading up to Titanfall's release, this week's Xbox One sales (which will include the 2 weeks of Titanfall bundle preorders plus sales for this week), and the likely small boosts the next few weeks after Titanfall's release week, I wouldn't be surprised if Titanfall sells at least 400k Xbox One's.
