PS4 Sales Impress In Q2 2014 With 3.3 Million Units Sold

| October 31, 2014

PS4 Sales Impress In Q2 2014 With 3.3 Million Units Sold News PlayStation  Sony PS4

Sony as a company might be losing money, but this is not the fault of the gaming department. The PS4 managed to sell over 3.3 million units in the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

This information comes from the recent financial report from Sony. Overall, 4.1 million home consoles were sold by the company in the recent quarter while portable consoles sold 0.7 million units. An impressive 106 million software units were sold too.

Thanks to the success of the PS4, sales from the gaming department increased by 83.2% compared to the same quarter in 2013. Sony had sales of 169 billion yen in 2013. This skyrocketed to 309.5 billion yen for Q2 2014.

The last time Sony announced overall PS4 sales was back in August. Back then, 10 million PS4 units were sold. This new update should have increased sales to approximately 13 million units. The console came out in November 2013 so this figure was achieved in roughly only 10 months.

Nintendo has sold just over 7 million Wii U consoles now while the Xbox One has sold around 5 million units the last time Microsoft announced an update on sales. All consoles are sure to get an extra boost for this upcoming quarter thanks to the Holiday season.

As successful as the PS4 has been, Sony still had an operating loss of $785 million and a net loss of $1.247 billion. This was mainly due to the other departments that Sony owns.

  • The PC Master Race

    I love how the damage control is the main point of the article and yet another no profit quarter was mentioned quietly at the end.

    Maybe China will save Sony when Kaz sells it piecemeal to Ali baba.

    • Rolling it tight

      I love how they even had to mention the overall loss despite the strongest in the world gaming division.

      It has zero meaning on the playstation brand.

      What’s even funnier is how Sony continues to deliver more to their consumers despite all these losses. That it’s self just proves how great of a company Sony is.

      • The PC Master Race

        The loss is so bad that the shills have to be even more blatant and claim the company delivers more despite having a non functioning online service, some of the most overpriced TV’s in the market and continually pushing forth media DRM.

        San Mateo please. You can smell the desperation off your posts.

        • Wild running star

          You are the one blatantly lying. The service hasn’t been down for anyone. I’ve been freaking on it and my friends. And Sony does deliver more

          Best priced hardware & accessories
          Best exclusives of all genre
          The most exclusive content
          The best subscription service
          The best features

          It’s all in the facts

          • The PC Master Race

            All lies like everything sony does, Shill

          • ?????

            Xbox has more and better features, as well as exclusives. Gold ensures protection.

          • ?????

            Stop lying Xbox has less exclusives. I’m not sure what you mean by features but PS4 has more gaming feature. Better feature is subjective and I’ve already told you many times subjective arguments are useless. I guess you simpply still don’t understand the meaning of subjective.

          • The PC Master Race

            Consoles have less exclusives than PC.

            BTFO, Shills :^)

          • FloridaSun72

            Why do you try so hard for PC? You are either really jealous or have nothing better to do. No one cares what you are saying.

          • ?????

            Same thing goes for you, screaming 8 year old. At least his posts are SOMEWHAT logical.

          • Pattonfiend67

            I care, and I do not game on Sony or Microsoft, even my computer has Linux distro.

          • ?????

            I guess you don’t know what proper grammar is. And it does have more, that also won more awards.
            Keep lying.

          • ?????

            lol Silly Guest. You are the one who said “better features” what does grammar got to do with anything? You keep bringing subjective arguments like “better features”.
            lol No, it doesn’t have more games I’ve already proved it by posting the list of exclusives. You just want to ignore the fact and lie. ofc you can still prove your point by posting the list of exclus but you won’t because you know the PS4 has more exclusives.

            lol @ more awards. :)

          • ?????

            Really? A lot are remakes or on PC already.
            Xbox has the most when the year is over.

          • FloridaSun72

            Way to plan ahead. PS4s future looks much brighter than xbox. Even if what your saying is true then its pretty sad that MS pissed so many people off that they still bought a PS4 over any exclusives xbox has.

          • Truth

            Just look at orig Xbox and 360. Enjoy your 4 short years of support before it’s abandoned

          • ?????

            Funny, Xbox is under new management. But a blind fanboy like you wouldn’t know that.
            Have fun having your network hacked again.

          • Whiskey Red Balls

            Oh that’s gonna change things? I’ll give ya this. You xbots are optimistic little fucks no doubt

            Xbox will deliver more
            Xbox live is worth it
            Xbox will beat playstation with ________(place desperate move or blind optimism here)
            Xbox may not piss on gamers this time, not 3 times

            What was the old saying? Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Best of luck to you, your gonna need it !

          • Whiskey Red Balls

            Sorry, I don’t know what I was saying. I think Xbox One is a great console.

          • Whiskey Red Balls

            Yes xbox is great if you like to be fucked over in exclusives, features, exclusive content, subscription service, onlilne play and quality.

          • ?????

            Xbox has had thesame poiltics (paying for timed exclusivity and lying to the public about it) for years. Under new management or not, the lies continues… :)

          • ?????

            If they are on PC they are not exclusives now, are they? Unless you don’t know the meaning of the word exclusive.
            Oh and looks like you have trouble with your tenses. So what is it PS4 has more exclusives? Will have more exclusives when the year is over?

          • ?????

            Are they on PS or Wii U? Nope. And nobody plays them on PC anyway. Just look at Titanfall. Dead on PC but still strong on Xbox.

          • ?????

            lol like I tought you don’t know the meaning of exclusive. ha ha ha
            Well, it is not something that changes meaning to suit your agenda. And NO, titanfall is not an X1 exclusive.

          • ?????

            Well, you don’t pay attention. In the CONSOLE realm, it’s exclusive. And like I said, its dead on PC, but still strong on Xbox.

          • ?????

            LOL no one talked about console exclusivity but you’ll obviously try and use all kinda stupid argument trying to pass Titanfall as an exclusive.
            Unfortunately it doesn’t work like this when we are talking facts.

          • Momma

            Because titanfall sucks

          • ?????

            Oh, hey Guest. Titanfall is still strong on Xbox One. But you wouldn’t know. 75 awards.

          • ?????

            Strong because there are no games and Xbone gamers are desperate.

          • FloridaSun72

            NOTHING is strong on Xbox…..

          • ?????

            Features, exclusives, deals, and online.
            Meanwhile Sony is still trying to clear up the whole Driveclub fiasco. What a screaming 8 year old.

          • FloridaSun72

            Meanwhile MS is announcing its 50th price cut on the xbone to no avail. Whats next? Buy Halo 5 get a X1 console free?

          • FloridaSun72

            So why hasnt MS revealed exact sold to consumer numbers if its doing so well. The Xbone has had enough deals to stretch its entire life cycle yet alone in a year. Thats serious desperation.

          • ?????

            That benefit a consumer. Meanwhile Sony has done almost nothing. But hey, Sony is god, right?

          • FloridaSun72

            Exclusives dont count if you dont need the console to play them. Besides you cant say who has better exclusives based on the first year of a new generation. Such short sightedness is why people that have just the x1 will most likely get a PS4 in the future. 2015 is shaping up to be an awesome year for real next gen exclusivesfor the PS4. 13.3 million sold vs 5 million ensures the best of everything will be on the PS4 along with alot of x1s previously exclusive titles.

          • ?????

            You are blind, as usual.
            Xbox games on PC are pretty much dead. Still strong on Xbox. 2015 is a great year for Xbox One as well, as we have:
            Quantum Break
            Halo 5:Guardians
            Crackdown
            Phantom Dust
            Scalebound
            Fable Legends
            It’s funny how you say I can’t say who has better exclusives, yet you go ahead and do the same thing. At least 7 million sold.
            Stop crying, 8 year old.

          • Allen

            Which can and prob will go to PC any time. Playstation has the best exclusives and exclusive content. And service and features and price. There is no question to most

          • ?????

            Subjective. Love how you all say that its subjective when I say it, but when you do it, its fact. Also, expect the PC versions to die quickly, where at Xbox it will be strong. PSN goes down more, PSNow is too expensive, and yeah.

          • FloridaSun72

            Doesnt change the fact that they are not really exclusive. That lineup excites no one other than xbots because its all they got to look forward too. 7 million sold? Why hasnt MS reported this number? All we get is shipped between x1 and 360 without numbers for each, they just lump them together. Its 5 vs 13 million until MS says otherwise.

          • ?????

            The lineup excites no one? How wrong you are. Sunset Overdrive was great, and people are looking forward to the Halo MC collection, Quantum Break, Fable, Crackdown, Scalebound, Phantom Dust, and all the others out right now. Once again, you didn’t read the article about sales. What does PS4 have this year? LBP 3, a childrens game, and Driveclub, a broken racer. There’s a reason why Xbox is winning the games dept. But since you refuse to face the music, no wonder why you enjoy playing Knack.

          • FloridaSun72

            If the games were that great x1 would be selling alot better than it is. Smart consumers took the time to make a decision on which system to purchase. Having better hardware will pay off in the long run when the titles start rolling out. Xbots dont think like this however, just because its MS they bought it. Most will regret it down the road and whats out now for either system is just the beginning. Too bad you cant see that.

          • ?????

            Like how a lot of people are regretting buying a PS4 and its bad network, kids running around, etc.?
            Hardware is basically all you guys got.

          • FloridaSun72

            LMAO!! Whatever makes you sleep better at night. Delusions at its best.

          • ?????

            You’re probably the kid who humps his PS4 at night.

          • FloridaSun72

            LOL!!! You have NOTHING to come back with so you resort to idiocy.

          • ?????

            Neither do you. You started insulting me.
            Idiocy is strong within you. Hahaha.

          • FloridaSun72

            Im not the one whos either defending the xbone or doing damage control for MS. Seems like its all the bots do these days.

          • ?????

            You’re doing it for Sony.

          • ?????

            Like what you and all the other PS fanboys do? Except worse?

          • FloridaSun72

            Better than being MS bitch

          • ?????

            Better than being a mindless sheep.

          • FloridaSun72

            What people? lol xbot fails again

          • ?????

            2nd fastest selling system.

          • FloridaSun72

            Yea, sold to retailers……

          • ?????

            Same with PS4.

          • FloridaSun72

            That’s what wrong with xbots. Cant see past their own delusion

          • ?????

            Like you and the millions of PS fanboys.

          • FloridaSun72

            Theres an awful lot of former 360 owners in those millions. The smart ones cant just look over MS bad intentions. You sir are in the minority.

          • ?????

            And now they’re buying Xboxes.

          • FloridaSun72

            That list excites no one…..

          • ?????

            Lots of gamers. You think LBP3 excites people?
            8 year old shill.

          • FloridaSun72

            Yep, xboxs are just flying off shelves!

          • FloridaSun72

            So why arent they selling more systems then?

          • ?????

            Where’s the share play I missed that and the friend spectate/take over mode.

            Xbox ain’t got shit for features. Wow cable pass thru

          • ?????

            Wow, another blind f*ck. It has more, but of course you’re afraid to be wrong.
            Only the die-hard fanboys like you will use it, and I don’t think you guys have used it at all.
            Butthurt is strong with you, Guest.

          • ?????

            ha ha you’re so confused you don’t even know who you’re replying to.

          • ?????

            Nope, I exactly remember my posts, besides, its easy to tell which one’s which.

          • ?????

            What I mean is that we are more than just 2 using “?????”. If you look carefully at posting pattern you would have noticed it already but I guess I’m not surprise you didn’t notice it.

          • ?????

            I’m pretty sure both are you. One sounds like Guest, and the other sounds a a 9 year old with bad grammar to throw me off.
            Not going to work, Guest.

          • ?????

            ha ha You really are that paranoid? Not everyone is as insane as you. (using different name tags and agreeing to yourself).

            btw I would stop using “?????” and even use a Disqus account if you do the same, but that’s unlikely to happen because you just love to use multiple tag names and agree to yourself since no one actually agrees with you otherwise.

          • ?????

            The only “people” that agreed with you are YAFOW’s dead accounts. I never did that, and even if I did, you did it multiple times.

          • ?????

            lol you more or less just admitted doing it. but it doesn’t really matter.

            It’s not a surprise but once again you are changing topic. Why don’t you just create a Disqus account with the name “?????” I will do the same and stop using “?????” if you do it.

          • freddy_uk

            ps4 has more GAMING features . all xbox has are stupid media apps which my tv has already !

          • Pattonfiend67

            Best exclusives? Nintendo says hello…

            Most exclusive content? Nintendo says hello again…

            Why are you lying, man? What is wrong with you people…

            What best features? They do not have TVii, they have the shittiest web browser out of all consoles, they finally just got PLEX and Youtube, a year later, there service is always down and being hacked, even games like Driveclub, still don’t work, more than MONTH AFTER RELEASE.

            Subscription service? Bahahaha, you are thankful they are stealing all of this money from you just to play online and watch Netflix? Whooooa, guy…

      • Pattonfiend67

        Folks like Microsoft and Sony that have to lie, build hype, and then lie some more, should be respected by no one.

        This IS THE problem with gaming…

    • sampson3121

      this is a gaming site, is it not?

      ps4 is destroying the competition.

      • The PC Master Race

        PS4 is lagging behind Steam and Sony is losing money at an alarming rate.

        • PC Shill

          Lol lagging behind steam you wish.

          • The PC Master Race

            100 million regular users vs 8 million subscribers for non working online play

            Shill harder, Sony. It’s not going to pay off that debt.

          • PC shill

            Many of those are duplicates. PSN has like 120 million accounts and well over 100 million hardware units out there en route to 150 million ps4s that also sell a lot more high dollar games + DLC hell and subscription. All the money is in consoles which is why no games for PC. Waste of money to invest heavily in PC these days

          • Adams

            Exactly PC sucks these days. Mine collects dust

            Sad really

    • Steven Hiller

      No profit would have been great. 1.2 billion loss in a quarter, oh my god.

      • Adam Scarborough

        Yet still delivering more than the competition

  • Rubix99

    Xbox One really has some catching up to do.

    VGChartz currently have the Xbox One down as having sold 6,113,498 units globally as of 18th October 2014.

    But we know a lot of people discredit VGChartz. So lets look at some apparently more official figures.

    Xbox One 2014 NPD totals:

    -September 2014 – 284k
    -August 2014 – 160k
    July 2014 – 131k
    -June 2014 – 197k
    -May 2014 – 77k
    -April 2014 – 115k
    -March 2014 – 311k
    -February 2014 – 258k
    -January 2014 – 145k

    That works out to 1,678,000 Xbox One consoles sold in the USA between the start of January 2014 to the end of September 2014.

    Microsoft did officially confirm they had sold 3 million Xbox One consoles globally by the end of 2013 (with 3.9 million consoles shipped in total).

    Microsoft did officially announce they had sold 909,132 Xbox One consoles in the USA in November 2013.

    NPD say the Xbox One sold 908,000 consoles in the USA during December 2013.

    November and December 2013 both amount to 1,678,000 Xbox Oneconsoles sold in the USA for 2013.

    Approximately 60% of the Microsoft-confirmed 3 million Xbox One consoles sold globally in 2013 were sold in the USA.

    Whats interesting is that approximately 60% of the 82 million Xbox 360s sold globally were sold in the USA.

    So taking the the USA sales as 60% of what Xbox One has sold globally……the VGChartz figure of 6.1 million Xbox One consoles sold so far is not really an unrealistic estimation at all.

    And now the Xbox One is beneath heel by 7.4 million units when put against PS4 global sales of 13.5 million!!!

    • Whiskey Red Balls

      Very well written and thanks for putting all that together. Although not even in a pipe dream do I expect Xbox to catch up.

      • The PC Master Race

        Nah. It’s basically peasant maths to justify their failing company’s loss

        It actually has no chance of beating PC gaming. Ever.

        But the shills are really out in force to damage control it. Spin away marketers. You still get destroyed.

        • sampson3121

          jealous much? lol

          • Daniel evans

            lol just ignore him. he goes around a lot of sony articles bashing and spreading absolute rubbish. with a name like that he cant be taken seriously. something is very wrong with him and the way he thinks.

          • The PC Master Race

            Nope. Just pointing out facts to counter the shilling :^)

          • Allen

            Why would he be jealous? PC is the best of the best.

        • FloridaSun72

          Destroyed by who? No one outside of MMO freaks buy a PC to play console type games with

          • ?????

            But yet you say everyone plays Xbox One games on PC.
            Way to twist it yet again, you screaming 8 year old. I guess you always have to be right about everything.

          • FloridaSun72

            No I said Xbox games were not exclusive if they were on PC. That doesn’t mean people still want to play that crap…..

    • The PC Master Race

      I love the shills coming out and desperately trying to spin this loss as a good thing just because it’s beating the Xbone

      The desperation is real

      • sampson3121

        Why do you even care what sony losses or gains?
        ps4 is the best console ever and they are destroying all the others in sales.

        people love to hate the WINNER! LOL

        • ?????

          Wrong.
          That was the Nintendo.

          • ?????

            huh?

          • ?????

            The Nintendo. The NES? If you don’t know what that is, you’re not a gamer.

          • ?????

            lol So you call the NES “The Nintendo”. Ok fine.
            I didn’t know the NES sold that well. :D
            “Best console” is subjective. But I guess you still don’t know the meaning of the word. :)

          • ?????

            Look who’s talking. People call it the Nintendo since it’s called the Nintendo Entertainment System. I guess you didn’t know that if it wasn’t for Nintendo, Playstation wouldn’t even exist.
            See, I know my gaming history. Do you?

          • ?????

            lol We used to call it NES or Famicom. But I guess you’re confused as we used to call their next console (SNES) “the super nintendo”. I think your ignorance can be understood as you were probably not born then and never owned either of these consoles. :)

            If Nintendo didn’t exist there would have probably not have had Playstation or Xbox? Would Xbox exist if it wasn’t for Playstation? Well, I have no idea about that. It would have certainly be different. But I don’t know how all this has anything to do with the current discussion.

          • FloridaSun72

            Him calling it nintendo shows how young he must be. I been gaming since Atari 2600 when i was 7. Had just about every console since then.

          • ?????

            Another lie from the screaming 8 year old. How is calling it the Nintendo make me young? You have some good logic right there. And by that I mean shitty logic.
            It’s okay, we all know you don’t have anything besides a PS4 or Wii U, after all, you are an 8 year old who spouts bullshit.
            You’re an adult, my ass.

          • FloridaSun72

            Your right I regret selling older systems and games to buy newer ones. Had around 200 games for the NES and SNES. Also had Commodore 64, Colecovision, Atari 2600, Dreamcast, Genesis, Saturn, the original Xbox for about 3 months,,,was crap sold it, PS1, probably forgetting a few, still have my PS2, 3, 4, Wii U would never disgrace my gaming room with MS junk.

          • ?????

            People called it the Nintendo, Guest. Unfortunately, you weren’t around in the 80s.

          • ?????

            lol clueless kiddo trying to discuss gaming that he probably never ever owned. Your ignorance is proof that you don’t even know what you’re talking about and you probably discovered gaming with the X360.
            Either way Nintendo is a good company and I enjoy the Wii U just like how I enjoy the PS4. WiiU/PS4 perfect console combination and having a PC just means I’m covered this gen. :)

          • ?????

            Whatever. I own all 3. I’ve been gaming ever since the Deramcast. I have all the 6, 7, and 8 gen systems. Not to mention I’ve been collecting old systems as well.
            Way to jump to conclusions by saying “Y-Y-Y-YOU MUST HAVE STARTED GAMING WITH X360.”

          • ?????

            It’s called making a calculated guess based on your clueless statements and comments. But I was right you’re trying to debate about a period that you’ve never known.
            It’s a total different thing owning an “old” system and living in the period and playing it as a new system.

            You started gaming with the dreamcast after 1999-2000 and you dared come up with statement like “you weren’t around in the 80s” and debate with someone who actually lived when the NES was still an active console and owned consoles from that gen.

          • ?????

            I know people who lived in the 80’s, and from what they told me, they even called it the Nintendo. Even Youtube videos.
            Clueless statements? Where are they, then?

          • ?????

            Oh so your mommy told you it was called “the nintendo”. Youtube videos? ha ha
            Well, read Mordarkeen comment. That just showed how clueless your statements are. You dared comment about a period you never known against people who actually know it. Imagine how it would feel if in 15 years a 13 year old kid would discuss with you saying back in the days everyone used to call it “the Microsoft 360” and say you don’t know your gaming history… Well, that how I feel discussing with an ignorant kiddo like you.

          • ?????

            How am I ignorant? And if you believe Mordarkeen’s comment, then now I know why you are always wrong yourself. I find it funny how you changed the subject to me calling it the Nintendo. I guess somebody bit off more then they can chew.

          • ?????

            Xhanged the topic about you calling it ‘the nintendo’???
            That was always the topic. You wanted to know wbout the clueless statement and I showed it to you…

          • ?????

            Man, you have horrible grammar. No wonder why people don’t take you seriously!

          • ?????

            lol great comeback. And nice way to change topic once again when you lose an argument.

          • FloridaSun72

            NO ONE called it “the Nintendo”. What a tool.

          • ?????

            AVGN did.

          • ?????

            I called it NES or Nintendo but never the Nintendo that’s just stupid

          • ?????

            No but Nintendo is also kicking Xbone ass

          • ?????

            And bullshit spouts from the imposter yet again.

      • Rubix99

        I don’t care about Sony as a whole. I care about a console kicking ass in global sales and will end up getting the best treatment from top quality third party developers such as Rockstar Games and Bethesda in the future.

        And that is the PS4. Whatever happens to Sony eventually does not have any effect on the fact the PS4 will be the number 1 console for this generation.

        Xbox 360 ruled last generation, PS4 will rule this generation.

        Maybe one day PC will rule the generation and get ALL games and get them on time, unlike the record-selling GTA V thats coming to PC SEVENTEEN MONTHS LATE!!!!!!! And the total no show of the multi Game of the Year award winning Red Dead Redemption.

        Not even Destiny has shown up on PC yet. Not that I care at all about Destiny (or any online based game) but its a clear indication of how thir party developers seem to deprioritize the PC.

        You already admitted recently that developers “gimp” the PC versions of games. So all that extra fire power the PC has over consoles really aint worth anything when games either dont show up at all or come considerably late. And the ones that do eventually come get “gimped”.

        GTA IV (which also came late) was apparently horrible on PC according to the vast majority of PC gamers. All the reviews said it suffers performance issues even if you have a gaming PC rig that far exceeds the games maximum spec requirements.

        And PC is meant to be the “master race” system for games?

        • The PC Master Race

          Rockstar and Bethesda will just do what they always did. Release the best version on PC like Skyrim and Max Payne 3. And the developer who’s gimping is Ubi who were paid off by Sony and MS for it.

          And how could GTA V be the best version on consoles when it’s a silky smooth 30FPS and PC will be 60FPS? GTA IV ran at 640P on PS3 (lol) while the PC version was ironed out in patches. RDR didn’t get ported because the consoles were so terrible that they had to break console architecture to get it to work and couldn’t port it.

          This is why you are a stupid shill and consoles drag back the industry. PC is the master race no matter how much cancerous leeches like you spin it and how much Sony pays developers to gimp games because they feel threatened by it

          • Rubix99

            “And how could GTA V be the best version on consoles when it’s a silky smooth 30FPS and PC will be 60FPS”

            And how does that negate the fact that it’s coming SEVENTEEN MONTHS late? You think any true GTA fan will wait that long just for an improved frame rate?……something that was not even cared about by any game reviewers or any gamers who are not obsessed over superficial technicalities.

            “RDR didn’t get ported because the consoles were so terrible that they had to break console architecture to get it to work and couldn’t port it.”

            Regardless of reason…..the fact is the game DID NOT SHOW UP ON PC! And that is a BIG PROBLEM. So it basically comes down to playing the game on console or don’t play it at all. Not a tough decision for any Rockstar Games fan is it?

            I was a PC gamer back in 2005 to 2007, I went through a little period like you of bragging of technical superiority of Xbox 360 and PS3 owners and also other PC gamers who had a lesser spec system than me….but it didn’t take long at all for my gaming rig to become obsolete in that amount of time.

            But the only real good advantage I remember was getting games for free throgh Bit Torrent. Never paid for a single game! Oblivion, Half Life 2, Doom 3, Quake 4 etc……managed to get them all from Bit Torrent and the relevant cracks to bypass their verfication procedures.

            Give it a year or so and your PC rig will be outdated and worth even less than what a PS4 will cost.

    • FloridaSun72

      No way did xflop pass 6 million sold or MS would have finally announced sold to numbers.

      • ?????

        I guess your dyslexia twisted your vision when you saw the latest article about their sales.
        Man, for an adult, you sure sound like a child by calling it “Xflop”. You reek of ignorance.

        • Guest

          I know right?

          • ?????

            lol agreeing to yourself.

          • ?????

            No proof, as usual. And I remember you doing that multiple times.

          • ?????

            Not really unlike you using “Allen”, “Guest”, “?????” I’ve never replied to myself. You’re dumb enough not to figure out that we are more than 2 using “?????”

          • ?????

            No, I’m smart enough to figure out you’re just trying to be 2 different people.

          • ?????

            ha ha ha I guess that makes you really dumb. I’m sure the other people using “?????” must also be laughing at your stupidity.

          • ?????

            Explain how it’s dumb. Neither of us have proof that there are 2 more people.

          • ?????

            Because you said “I’m smart enough to figure out” something that is totally false.
            I think the very fact that when I first made the comment about there being 3 or more users using “?????” I got more than 2 upvotes by Guests shows that my statement is probably true. Another thing is that we don’t post at the same time. If I were the same person I would be having 0 hour sleep and would be spending whole day replying to you.
            Also if you see posting pattern and totally different mentality.

          • ?????

            So now upvotes matter? You could have upvoted yourself. Still, I actually have other hobbies, unlike you.

          • ?????

            Really I can upvote 2 times the same post? That’s news to me.
            Oh so you have other hobbies besides trolling and replying to yourself.

          • ?????

            Also when did I say upvotes are important? I just said if you used a bit of common sense you would realise that there are more than 2 of us using “?????”. Yes it was common sense, but you don’t seem to have a lot of it that’s why I call you dumb.
            Just like how you stupidly upvoted your posts to prove your point.
            I don’t really care it just makes you look dumb once again. ha ha

            Seriously I feel like I’m wasting my time discussing with a trolling idiot like you.

          • ?????

            Says the guy using my name, can’t back up his arguments, and started this whole mess.

          • ?????

            lol like I was the one using “Allen” to agree with myself. Silly hypocrite.

      • Rubix99

        perhaps they would have if there was not another console out there outsellg it by over 2-1.

        • FloridaSun72

          They would had they passed the Wii U but that system is really hitting its stride with a ton of exclusives out or coming soon. Wii U will hit 10 million sold before xflop. Bet on it.

        • FloridaSun72

          Passing the Wii U is newsworthy no?

  • Rubix99

    So…..

    -3.3 million PS4 cosoles were SOLD to actual customers globally between July and September.

    -2.4 million Xbox One AND Xbox 360 consoles were SHIPPED globally into retail stores between July and September.

    A lot of the Xbox One’s shipped were no doubt down to it being released in 29 additional countries throughout September.

    I would actually love to know what Sony’s actual shipping figure is now!

    • The PC Master Race

      And Sony is still a loss making company about to get destroyed by Steam in the next year.

      They should learn how to use the surrender button.

            ha ha ha So now you use the “Whiskey Red Balls” name tag and refer to yourself as “him”. I understand why you won’t want to use a disqus account.

            And no you idiot, you’re again wrong. The numbers you have are shipped figures.

            And you have no proof if that was me.

          • ?????

            It’s already been proven when you made 2 idiotic posts with 2 different user tags about an indie game (ori) being a AAA game in a topic that was long inactive and we were the only 2 posters in there.

            And here you do it again. You’re the only xbot still posting here and only you would make the silly mistake of counting the 2.4 (X1 & X360) shipped numbers and add it to the 5m shipped numbers. All that using the tag name of a sony fan.
            You’re really dumb and don’t like to assume your statement. You just invent fake users to back yourself.
            That’s probably why you don’t use a Disqus account. You wouldn’t be able to do it…

          • ?????

            Like how the PS fanboys do it? YAFOW upvotes himself with dead accounts. And according to that article, More X1 were shipped.

          • ?????

            And why should I care about PS fanboys and YAFOW’s upvotes?
            If someone brings the better argument just tell him it’s subjective and that’s the end of it.

            btw you never replied to this. Why do you care so much about upvotes? Who gives a fuck anyway? Reputation, popularity in such type of websites are stupid really. But you seem really bothereed by it all.

            I’m using “?????” because you are blatantly doing it yourself and want to make you feel what it’s like. You don’t mind using “Allen”, “Whiskey Red Balls”, and even “Guest”. But you feel pissed that others use “?????”. I find it hypocrite.

            PS4 will probably do this too. It’s the holiday season after all. PS4 also lowered the price in the UK.

        Like the one that says 13.3 mil sold vs 5 mil and the 2 billion dollar loss for Sony was actually around 800 million. Sonys gaming division is failing no one. MS failed you all by releasing something no one wants!

        • ?????

          Really? 7 million sold, and MC collection will sell so many Xbox Ones.
          Link for 800 million loss? Oh wait, you don’t.

            Oh btw i’m not sure a collection game has ever been a console seller. It will shift some console but it’s unlikely to be significant enough to beat the PS4.

          • ?????

            You must have not heard the hype for it after E3. But I would expect that from a person who defends his parents’ purchase to death. Funny how you all think TLOUR was a system seller, yet when a much better valued collection comes up, its not.

            And by the way:

            http://attackofthefanboy.com/news/microsoft-reports-xbox-one-sales-sharply-rise/

          • ?????

            That post just summed up what an idiot you are.

            1) hype alone doesn’t make a game a console seller.
            2) About 1/3 PS4 users were 360 gamers. A lot of people who never owned the PS3 or TLOU bought the game, so THE GAME sold well. It made a peak was never going to be a system seller like an uncharted 4.

            So you can stop lying now because I have never said or tought TLOUR was a system seller.
            Most of the X1 owners and people thinking of buying it have owned the 360 and have already owned these halo games.
            3) Better valued collection is again subjective. I guess you still don’t know the meaning of the word. :)
            4) Those are shipped numbers you idiot. I guess you don’t know the meaning of that word. You probably need to ask your english teacher on monday.

          • ?????

            1. It sure made Watchdogs, Titanfall, and Destiny sell well.
            2. There are a lot of people that are new to gaming, hence the MC collection. I like to see a link that everyone played ALL the Halo games.
            3. A collection that includes 4 remastered games that have both next gen and original graphics, over 100 maps, with an exclusive Nightfall game, Halo 2 anniversary, and Halo 5 beta for just $60 is the same as a remastered game that is a barely a year old and only has the graphics improved for $50? Looks like someone doesn’t know what subjective means :-).
            4. But still add to the total. Man, for someone who says I’m wrong, they sure are wrong themselves.

          • ?????

            1) Yes it sold well but they are not necessarly console sellers. The PS4 outsold the X1 thanks to Infamous. It had a lot less hype as compared to Titanfall.

            2) It remains to be seen if the new gamers would spend 500 bucks to play old games. Also the only people relly getting excited about these are the Xbox fans who already own an X1.

            3) Yeah, You don’t know what subjective means. They are marketing anniversary halo 2 as this amazing collection by bundling it with 3 existing ports and a beta of a level (which should be free anyway) and at 60$. I would prefer TLOUR at 50$ and there is absolutely nothing you could do about it because it’s subjective opinion.

            4) Your statement made no sense. The link you posted said they shipped to retailers 2.4m. And those include X1 and X360. And you added that to 5m shipped to retailers number. You don’t look like you know what does “shipped to retailers” mean. These are not “sold to customers” like Sony’s numbers.

          • ?????

            1. Look at Destiny. That wasn’t a console seller?
            2. They wouldn’t want some of the best Sci-fi shooters? Also, link telling me that only people who have an Xbox One are excited for it.
            3. I was talking about the VALUE dumbass. That is not subjective. And TLOUR is a PS3 port.
            4. Yet it states they sold way more X1s than 360s. Also, it is still selling well.

          • ?????

            1) Look, if one game does well, it doesn’t mean like all hyped games will be console sellers. it’s not easy to understand.
            2) Best Sci-fi shooters? What did I tell you about subjective statements? ha ha ha Jst go to any Halo MCC topic in aotf. You’ll see that ost of the posters are already X1 owners. I’m yet to hear someone who will buy the console for MCC in this site.
            3) ofc Value it’s subjective you idiot. You might value 4 old games at 60$ greatly, I value a masterpiece like TLOU at 50$ more than that. There is no legitimate to measure value of a product.
            4) That’s not the point. We are talking of figures around 6m. And when you say it is selling well it again is subjective. It’s selling well with respect to what? 360? planned numbers? PS4?

          • ?????

            1. If one system has exclusive content, then it will probably be a system seller.
            2. Telling me to look it up myself just proves you don’t have a leg to stand on.
            3. TLOU is subjective as a masterpiece. Any gamer would probably know this is one of the best collections, rivaling the Orange Box.
            4. All by itself, it seemed to sell faster than 360 during this stage. Just because it sells less than PS4 doesn’t mean its selling bad.

          • ?????

            1) Yeah Im sure Resogun and Lococycle were great system sellers. ha ha
            2) How difficult is it to click on menu and search Halo MCC topics?
            Here one topic since you’re so lazy.
            http://attackofthefanboy.com/news/halo-master-chief-collection-launch-day-playlists-revealed/

            The point is I’m yet to see someone post I’m going to buy the X1 for MCC not here not in any other site. There were so many more people saying they were buying the X1 for titanfall.
            3) TLOU as a masterpiece is subjective but so is your argument about best collections. It’s just subjective and there is nothing you can do about it. You may think it is the best others don’t think like you. Deal with it.
            4) Well; it IS not selling as well as 360 if we consider numbers this year. It is ahead in numbers just because of the amazing start thanks mainly to the current fanbase that wasn’t as big when the 360 started. And like I said I’m not sure MS are too happy or expected these numbers. They wouldn’t have made so many U-turn and price cuts if they were happy with sales.
            ofc you can keep thinking getting outsold almost 3:1 by your closest competitor is good, MS surely don’t think it is. :)

      The word of mouth about the silky smooth 30FPS. 900P, Non-Functioning online and dying parent company.

      Plenty of word to ascend to the PC Master Race, actually. But since you have your fingers in your ears and are crying in a corner. You never hear it

      By the way. A $600 gaming PC that’s three times the power of the Failurestation 4 is being released soon. Shills, BTFO :^)

    Good job sony xD. they have done such a good job with ps4 and im happy to have stayed with sony.They need to keep up the good work and just keep improving it. Nothing is perfect when it comes to technology but with the new firmware 2.0 finally out with the awesome features that come with it, they can now focus on re- stabilizing the system. I havnt had a single issue myself but i know plenty of people out there are having issues.

    Hmm… If a $1.2 billion dollar loss is impressive, Nintendo’s $222 million dollar profit from the same period must be God’s jism.

    I remember someone being all hyped up over 360 selling 1 million in a December year’s ago. This is more than a million per month and its during what is usually considered the drought of the year. Great job!

          Like you? At least e backs up his arguments and is somewhat logical. The same can’t be said for a screaming, crying 8 year old who has dyslexia.

    SHIPPED UNITS!!!! Anyways, The One and Kingtendo’s Wii U has more funner exclusives than PS4. I really wish we can create a program from PSbore users to experience The One and Wii U this Holiday season, who may not have the financial funds to do so. We need to remove welfare, medicad and etc. and have that idiot Obama sign this into law!!

    • ?????

      “more funner exclusives” is totally subjective. So sorry your argument doesn’t count. You could try harder next time with real arguments. :)

      • ?????

        So when you say PS4 does, it does count?
        PS fanboys. Twisting things around to make them sound right.

        • ?????

          What are you talking about silly Guest?
          I would never say stuff like “better ” or “more funner” exclusives. Those are just stupid arguments.

          But I understand why you xbots use subjective argument all the time. There are not many factual arguments left if we take away opinions.

          • ?????

            The same can be said for PS fanboys.
            And I’ve seen you say PS games and features are better, Guest.

          • ?????

            Can you prove that? No because as usual you’re lying.

            I don’t use these stupid arguments. I’m not an xbot like yourself.
            I always come up with facts like more games…

          • ?????

            More indies that nobody plays? Yeah.
            Look around the internet with these debates.
            There’s your proof, unless you’re too afraid to search it.

          • ?????

            lol you’re so defensive.
            More indies? YES
            Nobody plays indies? NO. Real gamers game no matter how much marketing and money goes into a game. I guess you wouldn’t know that. You sound like a victim or marketing and hype…
            More AA or AAA games? YES
            You accused me of saying those things yet can’t prove it because you are unable to find it. You are caught lying once again and unless you prove it by saying exactly where I said “better games and better features” you will remain a blatant liar.

          • ?????

            Like how you fell for the PS4 hype? I play indies, but I don’t buy a console just for that.
            Xbox One:
            Fantasia: Music Evolved
            Forza 5
            Forza Horizon 2
            Sunset Overdrive
            Dead Rising 3
            Project Spark
            Ryse
            Titanfall
            Ps4:
            ISS
            Driveclub
            Killzone shadow fall
            TLOUR
            Knack
            MLB 14
            8 to 6. And you accuse me of being a liar about saying they have better features and games, yet I thought you said they were subjective? Wow, you can’t even keep up with your own posts.

          • ?????

            So you conveniently left out
            Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
            Samurai Warriors 4
            Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition
            Yakuza: Ishin
            MotoGP 14


            And included a f2P like Project Spark.
            Second para made absolutely no sense. I have never ever used the “better feature and games” argument because it’s subjective. Yet you are accusing me of doing it without proof.

          • ?????

            Wow, funny how a lot of gamers haven’t really heard from those…is it because they’re NOT AAA? Besides Final Fantasy, they’re not.
            Now run along, little boy.

          • ?????

            So your definition of a AA or AAA game is “huh I should have heard about it”? ha ha ha
            You’re just stupid and ignorant that’s all. The dynasty warrior, Yakuza and Samurai Warior are very popular games in Japan and even sells well in other country. MotoGP is quite popular in Europe and particularly in Italy.

            I’ve left out some other games that could be considered AAA but the one I’ve put are clear big budget and popular enough series. Your posts just shows your overall ignorance when it comes to gaming and games in general. I would suggest to look up some of these games before coming with your own definition of what a AAA game is.

          • ?????

            ROFL nobody classifies those as AAA. Looks like someone’s butthurt.

          • Allen

            ROFL saying Project Spark isn’t AAA…then saying those indies are. Hahaha.
