PS4 launched a week later then Xbone in Europe, that's a key statement you left out TC!

Both factors skew the results. PS4 launched 1 week later. But X1 released in only 13 countries, which delays a portion of X1 sales to Q1 or Q2 of 2014, perhaps even later.

I'm not arguing for X1, I'm simply stating that it's impossible to make any accurate statements regarding the two launches since there are too many variables to consider. Yet, that's what people in this topic, and in others, are doing.

PS4 launched a week later, not earlier.

Bloody hell, the guys "just" posting sales. The reaction on this board is disgusting.

You guys wonder why this board is bad?

Exact same topic, different response and actual interesting questions.

"The Xbox One launched in eight countries in Europe, while the PlayStation 4 launched in 18 countries."

A key statement to leave out from the article TC, nice one.

Correct me if im wrong but didn't the ps4 launch a week later in Europe?

You are correct, but realistically day one sales are always going to be the main driving force for games. Its just how the industry works, with that said its likely the difference in launch days by a week wont make a large difference. The number of locations launched would likely be a more important statistic given this trend.
These minor spelling errors were brought to you by an ipad having no real feedback to enable me to know when i mistype and my own laziness.

Only if they didn't sell a single console in the last few weeks.
