Is 3rd place such a bad thing?

Xb1 was outselling wiiu when it was $500 and had just one good exclusive and pretty much nothing else, and is selling pretty much the same amount now that Mario kart came out. You have to figure its only going up afterwards.

Hype can do ridiculous things. IMO it could go either way:
Either the hype train dies and people realize how little the XBone has to offer compared to the PS4, so they go that route
Or people don't care that they're offering 90% the same thing so they get it from brand loyalty.


By now hype has passed, hype is initial, then people get it in their hands reviews go up, previews go up, word of mouth is out there, hype is gone and people know what it is, and arent just buying it just because at this point. Even though people here will throw the word hype out when they don't know why something is selling.


Maybe hype isn't the right word. But you yourself said it, it almost literally has nothing to offer that's better than the PS4, yet its still selling decently well. I guess the better word is the name brand.

Yea, during these times of no games people buy based on what's coming and company name, and maybe to a lesser extent the nongaming features. That's for any of these consoles.

Sixth. We have two mobile platforms to account for.
