Lol

*wonders if TC knows why*

Eh, I'll just let it go. You'll figure it out eventually.


Lol, no reasons can change this fact.

If I had 20 oranges to sell and you had 10 apples to sell in a month, even if you sold out you're 10 apples before I sold all of my oranges, the fact is I sold more fruit than you, period.

This is what the NPD for fruit sales for our month would say:

Oranges - 20
Apples - 10

Oranges would be the best selling fruit for the month.

You running out of product has nothing to do with a total sales in a time frame report.

The true fact is that both sold really well.


Yes, Yes, Oranges sold more but guess what there's another 30 people waiting for apples...

Doesn't change the fact that oranges sold more during that month

As a Sony fan, you'd know about dead last wouldn't you? Seven long years...


As an MS fan, you'd know about never winning a gen wouldn't you? This will be the third in the hat for Sony. And that's without considering that the PS3 may overtake the Wii yet the way it's selling worldwide.

Wouldn't 4 straight gen wins be something? Well something you MS fans could never imagine! LMAO

Never said it changed the fact... my point was there is a larger demand for the PS4. Did Sony spread themselves too thin - they definitely did.

As I see it this announcement is no different when MS claimed to be the fastest selling launch console... It was a PR spin and this is no different.

Both PS4 and X1 sold well.

Wii U sold poorly

Vita....lol. They might as well just stop making that gabrage.

PS4 guys, let them have this. They need something to get them by and make them feel reassured. Congrats Xbox.

It's because the WiiU is terrible and the PS4 was sold out since launch. Since there's plenty of Xbox1s available, they sold more by default.


yea - when you don't starve the market this is what happens.

Owning the unholy trinity (WiiU/Ps4/X1 because you know, fans don't think it's possible to have all three or something) I just came into this topic shaking my head and wanted to drop a few things I remember and a question; flexible or not.

When this all started and Microsoft dropped the proverbial soap, everybody in Sony camp was pretty much like " BOOM HEADSHOT ". Now we turn around and X1 is selling units and keeping up a good pace in a long and soon to be 10 year race. (10 years being the expectancy of each console).

So moving from that we get to issue A: Sales don't matter.

The second Sony fans were throwing their hands up at 1 MIL in NA alone, a feat that you can't arguably deny is beyond impressive considering MS is Western based and this is their turf, Microsoft fans went " We'll see what Xbox does, cross our fingers. " But when Xbox 1 sold 1MIL in 13 locations around the globe. People were like " SUCK IT SUCK IT YES XBOX STILL IN THIS! " Now I'll admit. 1MIL considering what people claimed (a total blow out) is impressive. But comparing 1MIL in your OWN backyard to 1MIL everywhere else is like comparing 45 homeruns in one baseball game. To 45 homeruns over the span of a career. Yeah it's 45 homeruns either way. But it's more impressive to see it in one sitting than over a life time. At that point you're just being a " Mr. Me Too " to throw your achievement there.

Which brings me to issue B: The flip flop.

Both sides do it and both are really out of place for it. But somebody else said it best.

When sales don't matter it's when PS4 has any solid ground, lead, positive momentum, etc. Or Xbox has some announcement of success and catching up to the trail left by Ps4. But if somebody finds one nugget to cling on ( NPD numbers being higher. OOS. 1MIL. Voted best console on X, Y, Z sites. whatever ) it always ends up being " We win because bigger this bigger that. "

Which goes to my last issue C: Denial

The bottom line is as a gamer everyone here should WANT to see both consoles thrive. Even if you have some brand loyalty you shouldn't be so naive to pretend that the success of one console and the potential failure of another is a good thing. Pretending that facts stop being facts for today until your console choice gets good news is just ridiculous.

So what in the #*$* is all the back and forth about? Really, honestly tell me somebody. Because the way I see it, every argument or defense from either side, about any aspect is utterly ridiculous and trivial.

And to the people going " Outselling is Outselling " for this particular instance because you want a bone in the dish for your camp? You look foolish. If Outselling is Outselling then the fact that the PS4 right now is outselling the X1 globally should leave reason for no challenge or debate. Yet again, we come to issue A and B the flip flop. Where now, it's not a matter of PS4 outselling anymore, but a matter of accepting that X1 did it in a specific month. It's ridiculous. Everybody in here, Ps4 and Xbox sides will try to throw logic and facts under a bus to be right. All to gain nothing from either company for it other than games for profit.

Disgusting.

You are correct good sir and I commend you! Fanboys from both sides always turn new console releases into a circus. I don't get why people compare sales numbers when all three are selling quite well. If you have the console you want, then go enjoy it and be happy. I envy you for having the perfect gaming trifecta. I tried that once with the Gamecube, PS2, and Xbox and I was overwhelmed. I just don't have the time and money to buy hardware and games for 2 or 3 consoles. I can hardly keep up with one.
