When that happens then monkeys will fly, the sky will rain down fire, and you will hear the Horn of the Herald. You will then know... the Apocalypse has begun.

It will never happen. The PS4 has so much more going for it. Xbox One is a Halo machine, and thats exactly what I bought it for.

We should see a significant increase come September once XBO launches in the remaining 25 or so regions but after that it should go to baseline again quickl and remain there

The boost the PS4 will get through Destiny alone will be enough that Sony could stop selling the console for the rest of the year.

The PS4 is about to double the X1 in sales.
Sunset Overdrive won't sell consoles to people.
Halo MCC will mainly get bought by people already owning a X1
Forza Horizon didn't sell anything on the 360 with that huge install base and will sell less on the X1.

The PS4 has already a baseline that is nearly twice as high as the X1 had with the pricecut effect(which is already gone again)
The Last of Us remaster will boost the PS4 more than any of the X1 Exclusives this year =)

The 25 Countries or what it will launch in september won't do much.
OMG JAPAN - MILLION SELLER COUNTRY...Yeah more like 10k max in the launchmonth.
Same goes for all of the european countries which are PS4 Territory.
And btw in those EU Countries the X1 was already available.Not official but they were in every big shop buyable since day1.
They will sell if im generous 100k max in all of those countries.Something the Destiny Boost for the PS4 will erase in a second.Oh yeah September is Fifa15 Release...Europe will go ham for the PS4 :D

I would like to see the Xbone overtake the PS4 just so I can see all the fanboys here start caring about console sales again lol.


I too would like to see sales matter for the Xbox.

Here's the better question...

Why is it that people who presumably don't own stock in these companies give a **** about which company sells more units???


Sales affect which games get developed for it.

Both systems are going to be here for a healthy life span. No point in worrying about sales. It gets pretty childish. I can see if you're concerned about the Wii U's position and future, but PS4 and XB1 will be just fine.

Can't say that all of it is true but what is more than likely possible is the bit about Japan. The Xbox brand has never been popular over there. With Japan switching to mobile and handheld games console sales are slowing down. That's why the 3DS is the big seller there. A reason the WiiU is picking up there is because they are releasing good games. Bayonetta 2, hyrule warriors, xenoblade chronicles X, etc. The PS4 and Xbox One have the same library just about so it's more than likely gonna have issues selling like the PS4.

It's not like MS will ship millions of units to Japan day 1.

They know way better than any of us just how much or few interest there is in Japan for the XBO.
