I am pretty sure he is incapable of 'toning' anything down. 'Both sold well' is saving grace for Xbox after a PS4 win.  In fact the PS4 probably outsold it by 2 to one.  


The guy was taking pictures about "XBO sold out" while making sure to shows PS4s there last year.

He definitely knows PS4 won BF and that's why he's "tame" this time.

But nope, not 2 to 1. No break can be possible got from that.

Fair enough but you hit the nail on the head about his antics last year.   So this is why I think Microsoft was moked for deciding against reporting sales.

tells me that MS may have finally thrown in the towel of winning... Anywhere, and is instead focus on maximizing their sales and focusing on their own console. Not a bad policy. Sony has been doing this since they have been developing the PS4 (No gimmicks, great power for price ratio, easy to dev for).

This is looking very much like an N64-PSX scenario.

N64- Sold very very well in NA, poorly in Japan, and very poorly in Europe.

XB1- Selling very very well in NA, poorly in Europe, and very very very poorly in Japan.

 

Remeber the PSX really did not start to open a large gap in NA until around mid way through GEN 5.

I also think this looks a lot like 5th gen.
Devs are happy with the PS system and willing to develop for it, as it was with the PS1, even the JRPGs are getting their thunder back!
Things are migrating to it more and more. Even Sega is showing signs of getting back to being a nice developer.

If this leads the same way that it lead to the 6th gen... PS5 will be such a monstrous succes.

The NDC bundle gained 92 places while the Gears bundle only gained 5. I thought the Gears bundle was going to be ahead... but its 14 places behind. I'm shocked.
