Ah, new article.

So what are these qualifications to be an analyst? Have a good head for how business fluctuates, current trends in the market, with years worth of watching said market and the various ups and downs it has had, and what new decisions or polices may impact the market and how it will do so?

Hell call me a games industry analyst then. I predict over a while (possibly a year or more) That the Xbone will take the lead in NA, but globally will still be behind. After E3 then I will give my next prediction.


Lmfao.

May as well give me as much credit as these other guys. The only difference is i can't be bought out for my prediction to be in the favor of one company or another. I guess that makes me more credible than them?

They're the same analysts who made this prediction last gen:

That is to say, lolololol.

don't they say this every month?

they would say the ps4 would outsell the xbox one if things were the other way around

it's called "click bait"

Does it really matter? I think numbers are interesting to observe, but do they really impact us? Not so much.

Honestly, I'm extremely surprised the PS4 has dominated the US for this long . You have to respect that.
