No.1??? What about 3DS, Greenberg???

3DS is a handheld. 

Handhelds are also consoles

It's a gaming platform first and foremost.

Not according to Microsoft or Sony PR since forever.

Greenberg is getting crafty with the PR. "Console" and "Handhelds" are two different things according to Greenberg.

Microsoft PR is on a whole another level.

When did MS or Sony ever include handhelds when talking about home consoles?

Than add "home" to it. Its not 1st place unless you spin it

 

Edit: TBF its not a big deal, but it does seem silly at least to me

PS4 vs XOs, yes. Xbox will win.

PS4 + Neo vs XOs, no. Neo will have explosive sales in lat Octuber and/or November. We have to factor prices and demand to figure out the rest of the year.

PS4 is PS4 + Neo. Not sure why there would be a distinction.

If its as 4x more cable machine at less than twice the price is unfair to both PS4 and XOne, it will destroy both in sales.

If its a premium $600+ machine it will trail behind XOne and PS4, the effect on PS4 sales I can not factor.

"Console" is home and "handheld" is handheld. Hardware refers to both.



Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287

Way too optimistic IMO, that's what everyone was saying 2 or 3 years ago too.

There was a lot of things being said 2 or 3 years ago.

The reciprocal of that was people saing PS4 would do 2 to 1 in the USA alone. Or PS4 repeating Wii numbers for all the generation.

Facts are MS is willing to sell the XO far cheaper than before and cram free games while Sony is more conservative and still enjoying a good profit.

Why would PS4 want to do Wii numbers all gen? That means they'd crawl to 100M, instead of easily passing it like the PS2, which it's currently outpacing.  

And let's just ignore all the Xbox fans' predictions and threads about how the XBO was going to actually compete with the PS4 WW, possibly beat it. Which started up again when XBO did well the following Xmas after launch. Now, it's only competing in the US when it's $70-$100 cheaper than the PS4.
