Well, March NPD was released Thurs, and it looks like the PS4 was able to successfully take on Xbox One prcecuts AND Titanfall, a very hyped game, to put it mildly. So, I decided to make this thread to illustrate how wrong some people have gotten this gen, so far. I will be honest. Originally, I had planned this months ago as a way to stick it in people's faces who downplayed the chances of the PS4 succeeding, or continuing to succeed, especially in the US/UK. But, I have gotten over that and really just wanted to create this because it's interesting how sometimes we can get things SO wrong. That goes for all sides.
To prove that, I will not be including the names of the posters these comments belong to in this thread. I will be linking to the original posts, mostly so people don't say I'm making these up, so you'll have to click the link if you really need to know. I will also finish this post by linking to a thread where I wrongly predicted the way the handheld market would turn out this gen (I'm so sorry, Nintendo fans ) So...here we go.
"I fully expect TitanFall on Xbox One to completely crush the hopes and dreams of Sony fans who think the PS4 will actually be as relevant as the Xbox in America. Not happening as far as the dominant market for gaming goes." - 2/12/14
"I predict that by Q1 2015 Xbox One will outsell PS4 in US and in Europe. Not just in UK but also in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Scandanavia etc. Everyone knows that the Xbox One is the better product it has kinect + the console." - 1/6/14
"PS4 has no chance to win America. Once Xbox One drops price to $399 combined with Titanfall and Halo N.America will be Xbox territory. Xbox One is already selling almost 1:1 being $100 more expensive." - 12/31/13
"The lineup is the best ever for a launch console. The following year's lineup won't do anything for it compared to that. Yes I think next year's PS4 numbers will be quite low." - 12/29/13
"For what I can see Sony will dominate America till february at best...and they might lose the UK sometime in 2014." - 12/23/13
"I don't see a great deal of defection in either camp yet. I think this gen will probably look similiar to last gen. I don't think the XBO or PS4 will crush the competition." - 12/23/13
"It is going to catch the PS4 before Christmas! only the PS patrol actually believe the PS4 will outsell xbox one in America." - 12/12/13
"Don't get too ahead of yourselves, it's been one week and nothing is decided, a fantastic holiday doesn't equal awesome year-round sales by default. And, let's not count the One out, it will probably take most of the UK and US market and Japan is fast becoming too irrelevant to tip the scales in a big way globally for home consoles." - 11/24/13
"XB1? It'll be there neck-and-neck with the PS4 all the way through this gen." - 11/23/13
"No its a 0% chance that Sony dominates in the USA." - 8/18/13
"Xbox One will win the USA quite handily once price drops. That will be enough to offset PS4 for most of the world. If PS4 sells more it will be by about 10% more." - 7/01/13
"maybe US and UK!? lol its a given the ps3 cant even outsell the 360 there now, with "no gamez"... every month the gap in the US and UK gets bigger and bigger. Anyhow there is no need to elaborate. you think that the PS4 will obliterate all before it. Thats enough for me." - 5/18/13
And, as promised...SO SORRY!
