even though u sound like just another xfanbot i agree with you, TC, that sony players dont seem to buy exclusives. I think majority of them stick to COD or madden. Sony customers are cheapskates



I don't think it has anything to do with exclusives. It seems the Sony fanbase on average don't seem to buy a lot of games in general.

Back on the PS3, the attach rate with software was much lower than 360 for whatever reason. Same trend seems to be happening now.


Im confused so far the PS4>X1 are beating X1 sales in games that are on both consoles yet you claim x1 player base buys more games?

Wrong.

The playstation fanbase has an incredibly diverse range of gaming interests, unlike the fanbase of other consoles. thus, just because an exclusive doesnt sell gangbusters doesnt mean that the fanbase doesnt buy games. it just means that some of the fanbase wasnt into the game released.

For example, there are legions of rpg fans among the playstation fanbase. many of them wouldnt have any interest in infamous whatsoever. they will be waiting for witcher, dragon age and ffxv.


Then why did Halo 3, one game, outsell God of War (a HnS), Uncharted (a TPS adventure game), LBP (a platformer) Valkirya Chronicles (A JRPG), and Killzone 2 (an FPS) combined?

That's a pretty wide range of genres that couldn't even beat 1 game.

Yet Titanfall on XB1 with a much lower userbase outsells Infamous SS by a good amount - Sony's only major exclusive in a large window.

How come Playstation owners don't buy exclusive video games? Do they just want a 1080p netflix and FIFA device? This is like when Halo 3 outsold nearly every PS3 exclusive combined at the time.

I'm going to laugh so hard when Halo 5 wipes the floor in sales despite being on the slower selling system.


Halo stopped to be good at 3. Halo 5? huh huh


Such cool
So hate
wow

It couldn't possibly be that Infamous has always been a small audience game, could it?

Nobody expected infamous to be a massively adopted game as the franchise has always been a little niche and the game has never been considered a massive title.

Use a little common sense and stop buying into company and troll talking points.


Open world action games are a pretty popular genre.
It has a niche audience because, quite frankly, it's a medicore franchise and it's on a platform that doesn't sell exclusive titles.

Haven't all multiplat games sold better on the PS4? I'm not sure but I think they have. I know TR did for a fact and PS4 also has more active users on BF4 by a good amount.

Did you not read his post? He explained it extremely well on why that is. Reading comprehension will take you far. Just need to brush up on it.

According to him, it was because the fanbase has a diverse range of tastes.

So why doesn't a diverse range of exclusives COMBINED outsell 1 game then? The math doesn't add up. Sony fans do not buy exclusive games.

You don't get it.

Infamous 1 and 2 weren't smashing successes. The infamous games have never been massively supported.

The only reason SS was viewed as anything other than a niche sandbox game(exactly like all the other installments have been) is because it came out so soon after the launch and was one of the few games on ps4 that wasn't considered an indie title.

Acting like it is a massive franchise, or ever was, is dumb.

1. Marketing, hype, & groupthink (a large reason why PS4 is selling well despite having a laughable library outside Infamous) portraying Sony as giving a crap about its customers (it doesn't) while Microsoft is some 1% villain from a superhero movie.

2. A lot of people only buy PS for sports games

3. A lot of people only buy PS for CoD

4. A lot of weirdos in both the west and Japan buy PS for little girl panty simulators and nothing else

5. A lot of people only buy PS for the GT franchise (which sells almost just as well as Halo usually)

6. Brand loyalty to a product that's been around since they've been kids

7. Ps3 was originally a great piece of media

TL;DR - A lot of people buying it for narrow reasons that sometimes don't involve a lot of different games.

Also, nice bait and switch. Title implies an anti Xbone thread until you read the body.
