PlayStation 4 Beats Xbox One In September, Nearly Triples August Sales

| October 16, 2014

PlayStation 4 Beats Xbox One In September, Nearly Triples August Sales News PlayStation Xbox  Xbox One PlayStation 4

Earlier this week, gaming analyst Michael Pachter made a bold prediction that Microsoft’s Xbox One outsold Sony’s PlayStation 4 during the month of September. However, while the official numbers are not in yet, that appears to be very far from the truth.

Geoff Keighley, the gaming journalist with probably more connections than anyone, first leaked the details after speaking with PlayStation themselves and then posted the following tweet:

  • “Per PlayStation: PlayStation 4 won the month of September, nearly tripling August sales.”

PlayStation themselves didn’t take long at all to chime in with their own tweet either:

  • “Breaking: PS4 was September’s top-selling console, leading current-gen software sales including Madden NFL 15, NHL 15 & FIFA 15. Thank you”

Pachter’s original prediction was 325,000 units for Xbox One and 250,000 for PlayStation 4, but he was way off base with his PlayStation 4 numbers as it turns out. The NPD numbers for August did not specifically identify how many they sold in the month, so we are not positive on just how high September’s are, but to nearly triple August’s sales where they were already the best selling console is pretty amazing.

The PlayStation 4’s success in September was likely boosted by the exclusive Destiny bundle, as well as all the PlayStation exclusive Destiny content. A lot of money was spent to acquire this at least timed exclusivity, so it appeared to have worked.

Sony was also boosted by the continued sales of Madden according to the tweet, as it managed to be the #1 game in August despite releasing near the end, with its best sales being on the PlayStation 4. FIFA 15 did the same as well, which allowed this major boost over the month.

This is just another in a long line of being incorrect for Pachter, so it will be interesting what he will be predicting over the holiday season in the competition between the consoles.

    And Sony is still going out of business. Consoles are still dying. Butthurt Sony shills will defend it because they are corporate slaves.

    And Sony can burn for downgrading Watch_Dogs just because their toaster needed extra sales.

      All you have are worthless lies and blind hatred that make you look deranged to normal, sane people.

        Derp you don’t even check your spam any more since you just derped out the one for Xbots instead of the special copy pasta you have for me. You are getting lazy.

      • xfatalxzero

        says the guy who posts the same shit ? on every post he reads. Me I like MS, Sony, Nintendo, and games behind the PC.. If you merely think one is better because one has a higher resolution or you think sales mean anything then you are not a true gamer. Demfacts you better be careful man people will report you as spam and then you have to change your name to “DenWrong”

      I’m still having fun playing on consoles. I don’t have fun with the current fragmented mess that is PC gaming.

  • Lacerz

    I’m starting to think that Pachter needs to go into meteorology.

  • Steven Hiller

    Exactly why will it be interesting to see what he predicts for the holidays?

    • Dean James

      Just to see what bold statement he makes next that he more than likely will be incorrect about.

    • $113353191

      He’ll predict Xbox takes October because Forza, and he’ll be wrong.
      He’ll predict Xbox takes November because Halo, and he’ll be wrong.
      He’ll predict Xbox takes December because it won December 2013, and he’ll be wrong again.

      • The PC Master Race

        And he’ll be wrong because the only winner this year is PC Gaming.

        • Allen

          Wrong again idiot. PC is okay but doesn’t give what consols do.

          Another amazing month for PlayStation beating the hell out of odiots calling for the demise of consoles, dumb fucks making too much money like Patcher and pathetic wanna be’s like you.

          • ?????

            Sorry, PS sucks so much this time. I’m going to Xbox.

          • ?????

            Oh, look. Some asshole decided to use my name. I’m famous now.

          • FloridaSun72

            The blind leading the dumb is more like it.

          • ?????

            Something tells me it was you. You’re literally the one who bashes the other console just because you don’t have it. You truly are a waste to humanity.

          • FloridaSun72

            If the other console was as powerful or (gasp!) MORE powerful than the PS4 i would have that as well. But you see the xflop has nothing to offer me that warrents its purchase. PS4 is the better of the two and Nintendo has great exclusives that cannot be had anywhere else. The only thing that xflop might have is, your beloved “features”. But gamers have spoken, 11 million and counting that at the end of the day what we, they want is the best GAMING experience available. The salez figures are so uneven because MS never gave their fans that choice. What you really wanted was something on par with the PS4 or better yet something stronger. What you got is wasted power for an already abandoned kinect and features that most people already have on numerous devices. So its basically an all in one multimedia device that plays games versus a dedicated gaming console with an emphasis on its power going towards games. Sure i like Sony and Nintendo because they have all the games i like the most. Now if the X1 was just as powerful or moreso i would have that too. But theres no way im paying for a system that struggles to produce games in true next gen resolution. The power gap will be even more on display when we see the 1st party exclusives coming out in 2015 and beyond where the underpowered x1 struggles for next gen look and feel or is constantly sacrificing resolution or graphics to maintain one or the other.

          • ?????

            For one, nobody buys a system for resolution.
            The problem is, developers have yet to use the PS4’s full potential, thus not showing the “50% more powerful” thing you fanboys said.
            Xbox has many games this year and next year. Honestly, the only game on PS4 that looks good is Bloodbourne and maybe Uncharted if the new writer can pull it off. These features are cool, and FYI, not everyone can afford the nice things that do this. But the sales gap is closing, all you have to do is look up Xbox One sales improving on Google.
            I’m glad you’re not on Xbox with that mentality.

          • FloridaSun72

            So you must own a 720p or lower resolution television right? Resolution doesn’t matter to you but I want the best resolution, graphics and framerate possible when I spend my money on whats supposed to be a next gen system. Having games at last gens resolution 792, 900 etc is unacceptable to the majority. Hence the 11 million and counting while the x1 sits at what we think is 5 million. The sales gap is not closing until MS proves otherwise with actual sold to customer numbers….but all we get are what they shipped so yeah its not doing well. There are more 1st party exclusives other than Bloodborne and UC4 all you need to do is look them up. The 50% more power is already somewhat on display when the PS4 gets the better looking and higher res version of multi plats but you will definitely see it more as the devs get better at maximizing the systems potential and the comparison gap will grow even wider as will the sales gap.

          • ?????

            No, I have a Samsung Plasma TV, put them both side by side and can barely see a difference, unless I put my eyes right on the screen. If you wanted graphics, you should’ve went to PC. PS4 can’t even keep the games on 1080p as they drop.
            Also, you still didn’t see the numerous articles saying Xbox is catching up. At least 8 million right now. And I don’t think power is determined by the number of pixels there are on the screen.
            More blind hate from the 8 year old.

          • FloridaSun72

            And more lies or just good old fasioned denial by an xbot. Funny that you people say things like 8 million sold but never provide a link and every website, magazine and gamer that isnt totally biased can tell multiplats are better on the PS4 but to you theres no difference, Wow.

          • ?????

            ROFL what exactly was I lying about? You’re running away from the truth like a little bitch.

          • FloridaSun72

            Do you know what shipped means? Sitting on shelves. If thats the case PS4 is at 16 million. Were talking about sold to actual customers. Come on man this was taught to you bots 8 months ago and you still dont know? Lol try again. Too bad so sad.

        Actually we can’t say PS4 will be #1 October, November, and December until they actually come to pass. The holiday looks strong for Xbox. I hope they give PS4 a run for their money in the US this holiday. You don’t want Sony to get too comfortable.

      • Steven Hiller

        He’ll predict psn will be up and running. He’ll be wrong

        • Shannon Novosel

          He will predict you are paid by Microsoft too be biased and be right

          • Steven Hiller

            I’ve already said in paid by Microsoft, not much of a prediction.

          • Shannon Novosel

            He will also predict Microsoft will do another 180 for the xbox one and be right

  • Shannon Novosel

    Poor Facts Michael Pachter had it wrong.

  • GK15

    I’m not surprised the PS4 won. Especially with the Destiny Bundle and all the Destiny hype. Pachter wasn’t even close tho. Seriously, where does this guy get his info?

    • $113353191

      Probably the fanboys that keep predicting Xbox will come back any day now.

      • The PC Master Race

        As delusional as the shills who think the Sony turnaround is still possible

        • pbizkit

          You sir have to realize that the only games that sell better on pc are strategy, rpg, and casual… Sports, action, family, shooters, and racing all sell better on consoles. Leaving the “nerds” (people who neglect real life to make a scheduled wow raid) the only people who buy on pc anymore. The fact that you call out Sony fans so often is funny to me because it is the majority of players you are calling out. Before you start saying how retarded people are for buying a console understand this is you versus the majority here… If you encounter asshole after asshole on a daily basis it’s about time you consider the possibility that you are the asshole and people are adapting to you.

        • FloridaSun72

          Sonys fine. Dont hate because your mommy wont buy you one.

          • JCheezy

            A company that sold off divisions, released dozens of workers and studios, losing billions a year and has a 78% of bankruptcy for the next 3 years is doing fine?
            Your fanboyism is a disease. You’re probably the kid who threw fits and was mooching off of mommy and daddy to buy you a new console.
            Keep raging, you ignorant 10- year old.

          • Guest

            ha ha The only one who is hating and raging here is you.
            Like you said your fanboyism is a disease. :)

            Anyway I an understand why you’re so angry and upset. You actually believed Pachter’s prediction! I feel for you. :(

            ha ha ha!!

          • ?????

            I said it was highly unlikely, and your fanboyism reeks one of the worst. If you want to keep jerking off in your mom’s basement, feel free.

          • Guest

            Unlike you here, I didn’t attack a company and go crazy when someone is saying a company is “doing fine”. Yet I’m the worst fanboy… Brilliant logic you have there. :)

          • ?????

            You attack anybody who doesn’t like PS or have an Xbox.

          • FloridaSun72

            Keep wishing ,its the only way Xflop beats PS4

          • ?????

            And still blindly hating like a kid. Better games, features, controller, and online on Xbox.

          • Guest

            Don’t you know the meaning of subjective? Look it up, you’ll look less stupid with all your “better” arguments…

          • ?????

            You seem to think so. All the PS fanboys going around saying their games are better like its a fact, then when someone says they think Xbox games are better, they think its subjective.
            Hypocrite fanboy.

          • Guest

            Not really. BOTH are wrong. Xbox one doesn’t have the better games and PS4 doesn’t have the better games.
            Honestly I rarely see Sony fans bring this argument the proof is this topic. Sony fans talk about more games, better resolution, more recent PS+ games with respect to GWG. These are all facts. Not subjective argument.

        • FloridaSun72

          Your like the uninvited kid that shows up everywhere and talks about things no one cares about. Are you really this jealous you cant afford a console or two?

      • JCheezy

        Come back? Just look up and you’ll see us. Not from a sales stand point but from a lot better console stand point. I only play a couple times a month and I know how much better Xbox is .Unlike you, I prefer to stay active and in shape and not stay greasy and obese like you, Hoppsy and plenty other fat fucking PS4ers. So if a part time gamer knows better then why don’t you? It just proves my point every time I see PS outsold Xbox, society is fucking ignorant and follows majority because you’re all boring ass robots. Get a life and your own decisions because there is noway in hell anyone would pick PS over Xbox unless your obese girlfriendless boy toys told you to.

        • FloridaSun72

          So you bought a console that has weaker gaming hardware and displays games in Lower resolutions and you think its money well spent? You must really love Forza and Halo,

          • ?????

            We chose a console with better features and a stronger lineup. You wasted your money on a system with inferior online, less AAAs, and a system that doesn’t even show its power advantage.
            You must love games that are only in 1080p. Too bad that advantage won’t last long.

          • Guest

            ha ha ha Typical subjective “better” arguments…

            You guys always make me laugh with your stupid arguments and lies (The X1 doesn’t have more AAA or AAA exclusives) :)

          • FloridaSun72

            What AAA are u talking about? You sound like X1 has tons of them.

          • Guest

            Read my comment again… ;)

          • ?????

            And PS4 has only a few, and are not even worth playing.

          • ?????

            Really? Do you even have proof? After this year, Xbox will have more AAAs.
            Maybe this hints that you failed math class.

          • FloridaSun72

            Why is the xflop going to magically get better hardware? I have no problem online with the PS3 or 4. What AAAs does X1 have? Nothing so great that its selling systems thats for sure. The PS4 already has a bigger game library and the real exclusives that wont appear on PC are better than anything your tv box has. Who doesnt want games in1080p? Isntthis supposed to be next gen? Why play like its last gen. I told u before, no one cares about ffeatures. Wii U is better than Xbox Done.

          • ?????

            More indies I can play on my phone or PC on PS4.
            Xbox AAAs:
            Halo
            Project Spark
            Ori
            Killer Instinct
            Forza
            Scalebound
            Crackdown
            Titanfall
            Sunset Overdrive
            Dead Rising 3
            Ryse
            and the Kinect games, since they sold 5 mill.
            And there is still more.
            Halo MC collection is likely to be a system seller. PS4 has no games worth playing.
            Another fanboy who goes apeshit over pixels.
            Xbox has higher specs than Wii U.
            Keep blindly hating like a kid.

          • Guest

            You talk about indies and PC games and most of the games you mentioned are just that.
            Since when are Ori and KI AAA games? ha ha ha
            Project Spark, Titanfall, DR3, Ryse are all on PC.
            Plus how many of those other exclusives will eventually magically come on other platforms after few months?

            At the moment the PS4 has more AAA exclusives. There are games announced for the PS4 and that is a fact. You can deny all you want but that won’t change the fact.

            While the X1 has
            Sunset Overdrive,
            Quantum break,
            Halo 5,
            Fable,
            Crackdown,
            Scalebound,
            Halo MCC

            The PS4 has
            The order,
            Tearaway,
            Bloodborne,
            Uncharted 4,
            Ratchet & Clank Redux,
            Deep Down,
            Until Dawn,
            Samurai Warrior 4,
            Persona 5,
            LBP 3,
            MLB 15: The Show
            Persona 5,
            Gran Turismo 7,
            Let It Die

            And not forgetting some other great games like PlanetSide 2, EverQuest Next…

            If you still think that there is more coming on the X1, you really need to go back to elementary maths class. :)

          • ?????

            Some of those aren’t even AAA. You put Persona 5 twice, you moron. I really doubt Tearaway, Persona 5, Samurai Warrior 4, and Let it Die are AAA. Besides, how many people even play Xbox games on PC?
            Silly PS fanboys, always trying to turn it around to fit their claims.

          • Guest

            Oh so you doubt that those 4 games are AAA? Tearaway is developed by Media Molecule. Samurai Warrior is quite a popular series in Japan. The persona serie also has a following and is developed by Atlus(sega branch). There is no doubt it’ll be in retail at full price. The only one that’s questionable is Let it die. we haven’t had enough details to be sure but as per what we have seen there is no indication that it isn’t going to be a good game.

            Having said all this you include ori and KI (a 20$ digital game) as your 2 AAA titles. ha ha ha

            The funny part is that even if we remove these 4 games there are still more on the PS4 side. :D

            Also your “how many people even play Xbox games on PC” argument is stupid and makes no sense in this discussion.

          • Allen

            Really? looks like someone is butthurt that they have no games to play. Some of those have not even been talkrd about. Ori and KI are AAA. I also doubt that a majority of those are AAAs.
            But if it fits your delusions, whatever.

          • Guest

            The only one who is butthurt is the one who changes his profile name to “Allen” just because the real Allen pisses him off. ha ha ha

            Not been talked about? By who? xbots like yourself? ofc you wouldn’t know any of these games you’re not a real gamer just an angry xbot who is upset about his console choice.

            Ori and KI are AAA!!! ha ha ha
            With that statement you just proved that you’re an ignorant when it comes gaming. It’s usless to debate with a clueless trolling fanboy.

          • Allen

            Look who’s talking. KI sold well over a million and I expect the same for Ori. And I see only the low-life PS fanboys talking about it.
            You’re not a real gamer since your mommy and daddy bought you one system and now you have to justify it by trashing the others.

          • Guest

            ha ha ha I think you’ll need to check the meaning of AAA games before trying to debate.
            Oh and can you prove your claim that “KI sold over a million”? Totally unlikely and you would know it if you knew anything about sales, trends and video games in general…

            Also I bought my own Wii U, PS4, PS3, 360… It’s been years since my mommy and daddy bought me a console. :)
            Anyway you seem upset about my comment. What is it that upsets you? Are you upset that I listed the upcoming AAA PS4 games vs the X1 and proved my point?

          • ?????

            LOL he thinks the Allen guy is me. I would never try to be like that guy in a million years.

          • Guest

            You’re most probably the same guy. I mean, what are the odds to see two idiots thinking Ori is a AAA game in the same topic? ha ha ha

          • ?????

            The same odds as you being a f*cking dipshit?

          • Guest

            Yes. Exactly what I was saying. The odds are so slim they are almost non-existant. :)

          • TheManWithABigToe

            I bought a One because it has a better exclusive lineup for now. Hardware and resolution don’t mean jack crap if it’s a bad game.

          • ?????

            Ignore him. He’s one of those blind and annoying 8 year olds where his mommy and daddy bought him a console and now he has to try to justify his purchase by spouting bullshit.

          • Guest

            “your mommy and daddy bought you one system”
            Same argument as “Allen”. ha ha ha
            That, your posting styles and the obvious “Ori is a AAA” comment proves that you’re a liar.
            Once again you look like a fool trying to post with different usernames and lie about it. ha ha ha

          • ?????

            Look who’s talking, somebody hiding behind “Guest”. You could be hiding behind Whiskey Red Balls for all we know. And why would Ori not be AAA?
            Silly PS fanboys denying great games.

          • FloridaSun72

            Why do i get the impression that all the x1 owners are kids/teens? What exclusive lineup are you talking about? All i see are a bunch of mid quality games and most are on PC Im glad i went with the PS4. The future looks brighter and they arent maxxing out its power just to appear to be next gen. Your right if the games bad who cares but dont you think a next gen system should easily display a resolution thats been current for quite awhile?

          • TheManWithABigToe

            Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive and Halo: Master Chief Collection are all mid quality games? What the heck are you smoking. I like the franchises that are on the One more than the franchises that are on the PS4. It’s funny how people forget how good GTA5 looked compared to earlier titles on last gen systems. The more these developers learn about these machines the more they will get out of them.

          • FloridaSun72

            Too bad the x1 is already being maxxed just so it wont look any worse vs the PS4. The PS4 has alot more for devs to work with and the quality will show as this gen goes on while your failbox already shot its load with Ryse.

          • TheManWithABigToe

            The Xbox One is not even close to being tapped out, what the heck are you talking about?

          • FloridaSun72

            Every article describing what it takes to get a multiplat on an X1 on par with what it looks and plays like on the PS4 says it all. From the devs talking about the stark difference in power between the two to them saying they are doing everything they can with what power they can muster out of the X1 is telling. Struggling to get to 1080p is one thing but if the first year multiplat games coming out shows a difference no matter how small imaging what the PS4 first party games are going to look like over what the X1s when they aren’t being made for parity sake. The X1 games are pretty much it where the PS4 has power to spare. 11 million people know this how don’t you?

          • TheManWithABigToe

            It’s early in this console generation don’t you get that? Games will keep getting better on the One.

          • FloridaSun72

            Having a next gen system struggling to look next gen when the competition has no problem doing so means they are already pushing that weak hardware in the x1 already….

          • TheManWithABigToe

            I’m more of a gameplay kinda of person but Quantum Break LOOKS pretty freaking good to me. Even the gameplay looks really solid. Sunset Overdrive LOOKS incredible too. It’s just my personal preference but I would much rather play a game like Sunset than Infamous. Sunset just seems more original and fresh.

            You do realize that almost none of the games this gen stay at 1080p native, right? It often drops, and the only one that stays at 1080p right now on PS4 is Driveclub, and look how that’s turning out.
            It’s the beginning of the gen, and not to mention, Ryse is still the best looking game this gen, and it was one of the first, so that begs the question: Is there really a huge graphics difference?
            What a blind, screaming 8 year old you are.

          • FloridaSun72

            For someone who talks about gameplay over graphics/resolution you sure like to fall back on Ryse. Too bad the game is mediocre and the X1 had to squeeze every last ounce of power to make it look that good. You wont see another game on the X1 look better than Ryse because that’s their ceiling on power. Wait until you see what the 1st party devs will be able to do with the PS4 in 2015 and beyond when they take their time and do it right. You will see games that put Ryse to shame with the resolution and framerate intact.

          • ?????

            Silly fanboy. I see a bunch of ignorant 12 year olds and over aggressive teens on PS4. And Xbox’s lineup destroy’s PS4 this fall.
            Keep hating while everyone ignores you, you ignorant 8 year old.

          • FloridaSun72

            Destroys? Really? You mean that Tony Hawk with guns Sunset Overhype? Or more fps rehash with MCC? Oh boy that will surely sell enough vcr1s to catch up to the superior system with a much brighter future. Sonys 1st party exclusives(not on pc!) will sell another million. Keep dreaming. MS sux and u know it.

        • FloridaSun72

          Kind of like the 360 last gen?

          • ?????

            People chose the better system: 360.

          • FloridaSun72

            And now they are choosing the better system this gen.

          • ?????

            The only reason why PS4 is selling better is because of MS screwing up their reveal. Maybe if you actually used common sense you would know.

        • Guest

          Another upset xbot who believed Pachter… I feel your pain… ha ha ha

          • ?????

            Another desperate PS fanboy going apeshit over sales.
            You reek of fanboyism.

          • FloridaSun72

            You would be too if the shitbox sold 11 million but in reality its 3rd behind the Wii U

          • ?????

            More blind hate from the 8 year old.
            Xbox is catching up to Wii U. Maybe you would know if you looked it up.

          • Guest

            So you care and look at sales numbers!! ha ha ha

          • ?????

            So just because I look it up makes me a rapid fece flinging fanboy like you?

          • Guest

            You made so many more posts in this and the pachter topic about sales.
            Keep telling yourself you don’t care.

            Like i said if you REALLY didn’t care you wouldn’t even post once like you didn’t in the WWE 2K15 DLC or the Raven’s Cry topics. :)

            As for me I DO look at sales and yes sales ARE important. I’m not in denial like you.

          • ?????

            Do you live in multiple countries? No? Than stop thinking that sales are the only thing that matter like a blind fanboy.

          • Guest

            As a matter of fact yes I do move a lot and stay weeks in different countries depending on my agenda, but I have no idea why this is even relevant.

            No one said sales are the only thing that matters. But sales do matter and I’m sure you’re not stupid enough to think it doesn’t. Bigger base means more likely to have more content, more investment and longer support/lifespan. Bigger base means bigger community…

        Come back? Where has it gone? Last time I looked it was doing pretty good.

  • Justin Rebar

  • Poopmuffin

    Who are these “analysts”? It seems like almost every prediction they come up with is wrong.

  • Dennis

    Where’s the official numbers? Links anyone?

    • FloridaSun72

      MS cant beat Nintendo so it refuses to show that they still havent sold 6 million systems because no one buys something thats only slightly better than last gen.

      • ?????

        Really? Xbox is catching up to Nintendo. PS4 is only slightly better than PS3. PS4 had less features than PS3 at launch.
        Stop making up stuff, you 8-year old.

        • FloridaSun72

          We dont know if its catching up because MS wont release those sorry ass sales figures. You got that backwards, the X1 is only slightly better than the 360. PS4 is a much more powerful gaming console than, the PS3. I keep telling you no one cares about ” features” if they did 11 million would be xflops sold not stuck at 5 and losing ground to Nintendo. They have system sellers coming out like Super Smash Bros. What does X1 have? More features? Wow thats exciting.

          • ?????

            Halo Master Chief collection, SO, KI2, Scalebound, Crackdown, Forza, etc. Funny how the most game played on PS4 is a multiplat.
            Xbox is more powerful than 360. More features, better hardware, etc.
            PS4 didn’t even have as many features than PS3 yet. Not to mention they have yet to show how much more powerful it really is.
            Nobody cares about features? Sure, keep lying to make yourself feel better.
            5 million were sold in April, I’m sure that they sold more by now.
            Keep proving you’re an ignorant over aggressive 8 year old. You prove it quite well by calling it “Xflop”. LOL.

          • FloridaSun72

            Dont you think if they broke 6 million xflops sold they would say so? Well they havent yet otherwise they wouldnt be so quiet. The US is your only market and the x1 is losing badly. The rest of the world simply doesnt care for it. Those games you mentioned are almost all on pc so their not really exclusive. The rest arent even out yet. Sony is in no rush to put their best games out because in 2015 the lineup will further widen the gap. Face it no one cares for xbox done. Sales are stagnant. Price cuts Bundles and free games cant sell systems. It will be completely dead this time next year as devs abandon it further. Bye bye bots.

          • ?????

            Silly fanboy. Sold 5 million in April, and now almost 6 months later. Learn to read.
            How is X1 losing badly in US? Catching up here, maybe you are yet again proving your ignorance.
            China seems to care for it, as well as UK, and how is PS4 doing in it’s homeland? Sales for it have been slow in some countries.
            The games aren’t on PS4 are they? In the console realm, they’re exclusive.
            Sales mean nothing.
            Xbox systems have been selling alright, maybe look up facts for a change?
            PS4 may not even last the generation, seeing as they can’t even make money at all. And no, developers will go to all systems just to make more money.
            Keep proving your ignorance, you blind, dumb 8 year old.

          • Guest

            I hope you know the difference between “selling to retailers” and “selling directly to customers”.

            It’s “easy” to provide and sell 5m to retailers (after initial good sales figure) but if these retailers are struggling to get rid of the stock they won’t order more consoles. It is unlikely they crossed the 6m at the moment but they should reach there quite soon.

          • FloridaSun72

            You cant even compare what MS and Sony are doing in countries like Japan when the X1 sell 20k which is dreadful. If a game can be had on a PC its not exclusive because you don’t need the console to play it. How is Sonys gaming division not making money. If anything its MS that would cut a failing console division if sales don’t pick up and when free games, price cuts and bundles STILL don’t get you the sales lead month to month that’s troubling.

          • ?????

            You do realize they have boosted some sales, right? Blind fauq.
            And how can I not compare them? Both consoles are struggling in Japan, and how many people actually have them for PC? If you look at Titanfall on PC, its dead. On Xbox One, still plenty of people.
            Maybe you should actually see some real evidence instead of spouting more bullshit. 8 year old.

          • FloridaSun72

            The evidence is everywhere you just refuse to process it. You think im just making stuff up? Nope i get news from gaming sites and not since launch has there been anything about the xflop catching up to anyone. Enjoy last place , but hey you got your features right? Lol people dont buy consoles for resolution in your world but they do if its got features. MS pass Nintendos Wii U yet? Link it when the news comes through.

          • ?????

            What evidence? It is YOU who can’t see the truth. PS fanboys defending 1080p with their lives. Enjoy Sony going bankrupt.

  • ?????

    We all know You are flat out wrong was here. He upvoted people with his dead accounts.

    • Guest

      You made 9 comments in this topic and 12 in the pachter topic. That’s a lot for someone who doesn’t care about sales…

      Yeah, keep telling yourself you don’t care if it makes you less bitter/sad when looking at the numbers… ha ha ha

      • ?????

        Keep telling yourself you’re not a troll.

        • Guest

          All I did is show how hypocrite YOU are. :)

          btw it’s funny how you call people trolls and fanboy when you are an obvious troll and fanboy yourself. Can you at least accept that you yourself are a troll?

          • ?????

            Keep proving you’re a troll there, buddy.

          • Guest

            Why do you get so upset? You yourself are a troll.

          • ?????

            Not upset, just putting a miserable piece of shit like you down.

          • Guest

            Bring me down? Not really. You just look like a fool here. ha ha ha
            1) I come out with proper arguments showing that you actually care about sales.
            2) You don’t have any argument to that so you attack me personally.

            ofc you do that often. You try to argue a little but soon run out of argument so you start with your childish attempt at insulting others. ha ha ha

            Funny thing is you’re a troll and a fanboy yet you call others that. Maybe you should stop trolling if you don’t want people to troll you. :)
            Small advice to you, don’t do it out if you can’t take it.

          • ?????

            Silly fanboy. You’ve been making a fool of yourself for a long time. And you’re the reason why this site community went to the trolls. I couldn’t find the “proper arguments” you had, and I do have arguments, you just ignore them over and over again.
            Silly fanboy trolling others.

          • Guest

            The only argument you have is “Bu-bu-but you’re a troll”.

            Other than that you have 0 argument. You made more comments here and in the pachter topic than anyone else. Like I said if you REALLY didn’t care you wouldn’t post this much. You wouldn’t even open this article, Just like you didn’t reply to the topics on WWE 2K15 DLC or the Raven’s Cry.

          • ?????

            ROFL I only posted more because you keep replying to me.
            Maybe you should look back at the comments, kid.

          • Guest

            Again if you REALLY didn’t care you wouldn’t even open this topic you wouldn’t be telling someone X1 is selling better than the wii U…

            So once again your argument isn’t valid.

            Anyway you’re out of argument once again. I guess that’s what happens when you lie that much. We both know that you actually care about sales and when someone proves it you start insulting them…

            You did the exact same thing before.
            You wanted me to prove that there are more upcoming AAA games on PS4.
            When I listed them you called an indie game AAA and started insulting me. I guess that’s typical… :)

          • ?????

            Silly fanboy. I like to troll Mordarkeen. And you still deny games like Ori as AAA?

          • Guest

            ha ha you aren’t trolling him much. He is just making you look like a fool, but I guess you’re used to that.

            And no idiot, Ori is developed by indie studio “Moon Studios” it’s an indie game. Please tell me you’re not that dumb enough to still call an indie game a AAA.
            By your logic I’ll call Resogun, flOw, Magicka 2, Octodad, No Man’s Sky, The Tomorrow Children, Wild… and so many other AAA exclusives for the PS4.

      • Ummmm?

        How was his comment a troll comment in any way?

        • Guest

          ha ha ha You’re again probably the same person but just in case I’ll reply you. You, I mean “he” is a known troll spamming Sony topics with flaimbaiting/insulting comments filled with lies, hypocrisy and ignorance. I hope for “his” sake “he” does this on purpose because it’ll be sad if “he” doesn’t.

  • Guest

    It’s funny to see hypocrite xbots with their usual “I don’t care about sales” and yet makes so many posts in that Pachter prediction article (about sales).

    The fact remains that if they REALLY didn’t care about sales they wouldn’t have posted in these topics, just like they don’t post in WWE 2K15 DLC or the Raven’s Cry articles… :)
