IGN has many Sony fan boys than Microsoft. Not surprised.
What's the usual PS/XB split between IGN users? Where are the respondents from? This seems more representative of a worldwide audience, but if it's primarily a U.S./NA audience, then the vote is skewed in favor of PlayStation.
We know from NPD data that the split in the U.S. is about 54% PS4/46% XBO, a much more even split. Based on what little we know the XBO is between 45-50M worldwide, and we know the PS4 has sold 106M WW as of the end of 2019, so in terms of WW sales the PS4/XBO split is 68-70% PS4/30-32%
Jranation, why would you say that, when their "votes" almost reflect actual console sales in NPD in the US?
54% vs 58%, isnt a gigantic differnce.
Also I bet if theres again another gen, with a 100$ price differnce between the two consoles (in sony favor),
you ll see a gen much like the last one in terms of sales.
I picked sticking with PS4/XBO... I'll eventually get one (or both), but probably not for 1-2 years after release, and then it will depend on which either plays better (individual specs can be misleading) or has more interesting exclusives. Of course a launch title could change my mind, but I haven't been that exited about a new title in a long time...
I'm kinda with you. I look at games like a Gears 5, Resident Evil 3, and Final Fantasy VII and I wonder if we even need new hardware right now. Especially if the Xbox One X will run a version of Xbox SX titles. What's the rush?
Honestly feel the same way. The graphics Sony does on exclusives is still wow worthy to me.

If more devs put in more effort, overall games could still look better, without the need for new hardware.
Also so many devs, just leave all that on the table.... what good is more powerfull hardware, if your makeing indie games? or 2D low res pixelated ones?
