You know MS only reports shipped numbers right?

Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony all report shipped numbers in their financial reports.

The PS4 is doing really well.

Hard to say why, as it has pretty much jack all.


Hype. And internet articles constantly putting down Wii U and X1, and praising PS4 at every given chance.


Well its got better specs and therefore better potential than both.


Specs have never mattered before when it comes to consoles. I know the fans, and even the companies, like to hype them up like they do, but history has proven otherwise. Better specs doesn't mean better games. Nor does it mean the potential for better games. Any developer worth a damn can make an amazing game regardless of specs. Just look at rising popularity of indie games, most of which could be made for the N64.


"Specs don't matter"

Wii U got gimped or no multiplats due to not being able to handle PS4/XB1 titles and thats a good part of the reason its selling so poorly. Seems like they matter to me.

A lot of multiplat titles get gimped in order to be able to run on the PS4 and XB1 as well, so that can't be it.

Console wars are like pissing contests. So yeah.

The most powerful systems have NEVER sold the most in the past

This. And as I already told him: If people bought consoles based on specs, they'd all be gaming on PC.

How are those updated figures coming along, or have we moved on from that?

Sure, I'll whip them up.

I'll have to figure out a reasonable end date though or it will distort the figures.

PC aren't consoles. Consoles make more profit for the devs.
