I think worldwide they will be close for a while then PS4 will gradually take the lead. US will definitely be Xbox though.


same was said in march with the TF give away unoffical price cut, member what happend?


PS4 only outsold X1 in total sales in USA by ~ 10 %,  a price cut can make X1 catch up in a month, and then take the lead from there.

No it cant, its parity not price advantage X1 is getting.  It will never take the lead for the simple fact its an inferior product in damn near every possible way.  onyl way to ever take the lead would be a massive prices advantage over the PS4, akin to 360s over the PS3

I own a Vita and call it shitty sometimes.  I've also owned every playstation console released except PS4. Having owned those previous Playstation platforms can take a lot steam out of owning a Vita.  Especially when the backwards compatability  is spotty and fractured by licensing issues or ports with bad frame rates.  SCEA are also pretty stingy with new content for it.  A lot of people would call that shitty.  

Thinking ill of Vita is does not necessitate never owning a PS console.  I would imagine that never having had a playstation would give a more positive impression when dumped into the Vita Libary.  You just have all that content and no context.  I've owned all those playstations already. Purely talking about Vita games it may have some undeniable quality but quantity is what I am accustomed to as a seasoned playstation owner.  Vita games alone simply don't live up to the quantity I've come to expect as a playstation customer.  

The hardware is absolutely amazing, how can you ever call it shitty? I could conceive someone saying they would like certain games to be released on it (some type of GTA, GoW, etc) or wanting lower prices for the memory cards. Personally the main thing that I wish would be to have the full JP library of games localized. I look at the top of the software list and see Sword Art Online while thinking... damn... only in JP so far!

 

Still, none of these things make the Vita shitty in itself. I have a ton more awesome games for it than my 3ds that everyone seems to find amazing (after their huge price cut)

That's some beautiful Sony indoctrination you got there. (Whistles impressively)

Nevermind that is not fact but opinion and totally subjective, it is arguable X1 has a edge on system sellers, online services, and LIVE in general.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

And has still yet to outsell the PS4 for at least 2 consecutive weeks now that both consoles are "properly" stocked.

not subjective btw.

be fair, he said 'near'. and i'm pretty sure even i could argue the PS4 has the upper hand in the paid online services this generation (ps+) as well as software department, both numbers (objective measure) and quality (subjective). Even the fact that MS is following Sony's lead and reversing their policies (from the DRM debacle to the recent removal of the camera, games with gold and finally taking the online paywall from blocking some of the apps) ever since E3 2013 is the recognition they were being left behind.

In US, it'll be close (PS4 slightly ahead), elsewhere, still pS4 by a very sizable margin.
