Will Xbox One Beat PlayStation 4 This Holiday Season?

| May 24, 2015

Will Xbox One Beat PlayStation 4 This Holiday Season? Articles PlayStation  Xbox One PlayStation 4

The Xbox One certainly did not get things off on the right foot this generation with a debacle of a reveal and follow-up that turned many gamers off of the Xbox brand completely. Microsoft was able to make a 180 and did away with what everyone hated and managed to win many gamers back luckily. This partially led the system to lag behind the PlayStation 4 in sales almost every month and by a far margin overall, but Microsoft was able to pull out a surprising win in April in the recent NPD announcement. With an already strong holiday lineup even before the upcoming E3 announcements, is Microsoft setting themselves up to take down the goliath that is PlayStation 4 this coming holiday season?

Ever since the first true console wars between the Super Nintendo and Genesis in the ’90s, we have always had constant battles between rival companies in the console gaming space. This has led to the creation of fanboys, hence the website name, and sales numbers have definitely helped the argument for one side over the other. The PS4 has certainly been the winner in that department, with the system far outselling the Xbox One overall, even with the Xbox One leading in monthly NPDs in late 2013.

The fact that the Xbox One cost $100 more from the start, due to the included Kinect, combined with the terrible PR that it received upon being announced made it a very hard sell to many gamers. This led to many jumping ship to the PlayStation 4, after the Xbox 360 was the definitive leader, between it and the PS3, from the beginning of the last generation.

Things got even worse for the Xbox One when reports started to come out that many games that were available for both platforms were inferior on Xbox One. Certain games that were hitting 1080p and 60fps on PS4 just weren’t hitting the mark on Xbox One, some having to be scaled back to 900p and 720p. While this hasn’t gone away, the differences are still there at times, though developers are figuring out how to better utilize the Xbox One’s power.

These early setbacks saw the PlayStation 4 become nearly impossible to find in stores for months, while the Xbox One was readily available. Around the time the PS4 became more available in stores however, Microsoft made the decision to unbundle the Kinect and offer a base Xbox One console for $399. This pseudo price drop did help to drum up sales, but the PS4 managed to still outsell the Xbox One, helped by the launch of Driveclub and exclusive content partnerships with Bungie for Destiny and such, along with the fact that previous Xbox centric franchises like FIFA even shifted more towards PlayStation as well.

Entering the holiday season, the Xbox One had a pretty impressive lineup with Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive, and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, while PS4 had essentially nothing exclusive outside of LittleBigPlanet 3, which was also on PS3. Microsoft took it another step further by doing a special holiday price drop to $349, leading to a victory in the November and December NPDs, also likely helped by the exclusive Call of Duty DLC partnership.

After the holidays, Microsoft announced that the price drop was being made permanent, but the PS4 once again took first place and had a few major exclusives with The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne, the latter of which sold quite well. Then came the somewhat surprising announcement last week that the Xbox One had won the April NPDs, with really nothing special coming out during that month. In fact, April was an incredibly slow month all around, except for Mortal Kombat X.

Some have speculated that a special deal that Best Buy had where you could trade in certain Xbox 360 or PS3 consoles and get a Xbox One for only $175 may have played a part, but could it just really be a case of the Xbox One really having some momentum and the two are going neck and neck right now rather than it being a blowout?

I personally do not think the Best Buy deal had enough impact to make a different on the NPDs, as some reports have the PS4 selling 2/3 of what the Xbox One did in April. Even if it did make a difference, it would have had the two consoles being very close in sales for the month at worst.

The newer bundle with Halo: The Master Chief Collection definitely has to help with some sales, as the game is definitely working a lot better these days than it did in the past. The Xbox One hasn’t really had any major exclusives this year thus far, but the future is looking very bright for owners of the system.

Halo 5: Guardians is easily the biggest of the bunch, but we also have a new Forza and all but official Gears of War remaster. They also scored Rise of the Tomb Raider as a timed exclusive, which should be a big seller this holiday season, especially to fill that void left by the delay of the next Uncharted for PS4. We also have a brand new non-Kinect Rare game to be announced that could come later this year and maybe even Scalebound as well. Call of Duty is always a major seller on Xbox consoles and with the Xbox One gaining more popularity, many of those that jumped to the game on PS4 could jump right back with Black Ops III this year, especially if the timed exclusive DLC continues.

In comparison, the PlayStation 4’s upcoming slate is absolutely barren. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and the new Ratchet and Clank have already been delayed and Until Dawn is supposed to be out this summer, though that could easily be pushed back. No Man’s Sky and Tearaway Unfolded are also coming, but we really have no set details on a release for either outside of sometime in 2015. I’m sure they will have plenty of reveals at E3, but just how many can they reveal for a release already later this year. Buzz is everything and typically only Nintendo announces major games and puts them out within the year, while Sony usually reveals their big hitters a little further ahead of time.

Just looking at things as they are right now, the Xbox One definitely has the better slate of exclusives lined up for the rest of 2015, but Sony could definitely blow that wide open at their E3 press conference. However, things are starting to look better for the Xbox One and with yet another strong lineup already set for the fall, with some still yet to be revealed I’m sure, and a cheaper price tag, it is very possible that the Xbox One could continue to gain momentum and continue to win monthly NPDs on their way to narrowing the overall sales gap.

    Probably. Dragon Quest Heroes is nothing compared to the sellers Forza, Halo, Gears, etc.

    • XbotMK1

      Forza 5 sold less than 2 million
      Forza Horizon 2 sold less than 1 million.
      Halo remastered sold 2 million because of bundles
      Gears Judgement sold 1.5 million

      This is from VG Chartz so take it with a grain of salt. But it’s clear, the hype for these old franchises isn’t what it used to be.

      The PS4 has many NEW IPS this year that are console exclusive to the PS4. “Attack of the fanboy” is just writing an opinion piece to give Xbox One a little time to shine.

      • ALightningBoldt

        Due to increase in digital sales this generation, VGchartz has become less accurate than it was. Almost none of my games bought on Xbox one will be “counted” because I’m going mostly digital, and I have almost 1TB of games. You just can’t trust them anymore.

        • CRZYSPZ

          I’m right with ya! I’m fully digital this generation and I’ve bought Halo MCC, Sunset Overdrive, Killer Instinct, and such. High five!

          • Allen

            Saw this old post and was coming here to see who predicted xbox would win the holidays. My prediction is Xbox loses again. What do you think?

        • Allen

          Hey, I just saw this old post and thought it would be fun to say I told you so and see if you would have a response. Halo was unable to stop PlayStation even in the US. Halo only helped win over October and less than 2 weeks later the all important month of November and Black Friday.

          Any who, thanks for the laughs.

          • ALightningBoldt

            What are you talking about?

          • Allen

            You siding with xbox for the holiday winning prediction.

          • ALightningBoldt

            Is that somewhere in this article? I’m not seeing it.

          • Allen

            lol

          • ALightningBoldt

            Go ahead and post what i said.

          • Allen

            It’s ok, I understand you trying to play it off now. You know PS4 has way more digital sales + physical

          • ALightningBoldt

            Sounds like you’re making shit up

          • Allen

            You were just talking shit and acting like Xbox poor sales in their biggest franchises is all summed up to digital sales.

            Well PS4 beat the shit out of xbox in holidays world wide and in the ex-xbox strong hold the US. Halo didn’t do shit to help out Xbox and PS4 is set up well after a much stronger E3 yet again to destroy Xbox this holiday again. With bigger hits, true exclusives and the only headache free, plug and play VR PlayStation will surely be on the top of everyone’s Christmas list.

            It’s okay. I have finally decided to get an Xbox. Decided on the Xbox one, getting it used though as to not help their sold number and not buying Xbox live. I’m just getting it for a little convenience so I can play the few xbox games I care about in the living room instead of outside in the office and so I can play Halo now instead of waiting for MCC to finally come to PC. I think 2 1/2 years after Micro$oft did exactly what I wanted is long enough wait (I just wanted them to drop paywalls to basic features like internet browser and basic apps like Netflix). At this point I am only denying myself, 500gb Xbone with Kinect $175 and MCC $20, let it eat AA because I won’t be on it much.

          • ALightningBoldt

            Cool story. No one cares.

          • Allen

            Looking at your pathetic 405 upvotes on 537 comments I’d say no one gives a shit about what you say lol.

            It’s okay, I know you are on the beaten end of a discussion you had a year ago lol but it’s still fun for me to point and laugh at you and even more fun for me to confront you about it.

            Funny to see that you are just all ass hurt and offer no valuable comment about the current gaming industry or where it’s headed.

          • ALightningBoldt

            Where is this alleged discussion that i lost?. It’s not in this article. Why reply in a different article?

          • Allen

            What? (1) You were commenting on an article about holiday sales in a pro xbox way (2) You were replying to someone talking about sales and you were trying to act as if digital sales weren’t tracked which is why xbox had shit sales on their exclusives (3) I pointed out that PS4 also had tons of digital sales so your entire argument is invalid.

            It’s okay. Let’s put this to rest. I had a good laugh, you aren’t defending xbox’s sinking ship anymore and we can part our ways. Have a good one buddy.

          • ALightningBoldt

            I said vgchrtz is the least useful it’s ever been. Nowhere did i say anything pro xbox nor did i predict they would win the holidays. You’re retarded. Wait are you xbotmk1? If so I’m donewith this. I don’t have anyinterest in your fanboy shit.

          • Allen

            vgchartz while not perfectly accurate in their early announced numbers are praised for being surprisingly accurate a lot of the time.

            You are obviously pro xbox with your bull shit excuses for sales.

            And I’m sitting at 7800 comments, 20000+ upvotes & 100 followers. I’m pretty sure I’m unique but you are probably one of those fanboys that thinks everyone on the internet that is pro sony is all one person.

          • ALightningBoldt

            Vgchartz still doesn’t count digital sales, like i said. Again no one cares how many comments or followers you have. I ask if you’re xbotmk1 because that was original commenter. You’re pathetic. Get a life. Yeah i like my Xbox, but i also like Playstation. I’m a gamer, not some corporate cheerleader like you fanboys.

      • The PC Master Race

        What new IP’s?

        They are all on PC john derp.

        Oh wait, PS4 has movies and you think they are games. You must be confusing it with netflix again. Netflix has more gameplay though :^)

      • AfroHamstersX2

        Well in my opinion I think that it’ll be the same like always PlayStation always find new ways to boost sales plus it’s kinda impossible for xbox one to get past the sales of the ps4 yeah sure Xbox One does have a good AAA lineup this year but no matter what I think ps4 will prevail once again its my opinion if you feel I’m wrong then I’m sorry not trying to sound like a fanboy

        • AfroHamstersX2

          Whoops I forgot there are gonna 1tb models for both and ps4 users with the 500gb model can always upgrade to 1tb and it’s mainly for Xbox since the hdd can’t be removed

  • Chris D.

    I’ve had both systems from the start. And without question, XBOXONE is the overall better system. No question. So yes, there is a very good chance with the top shelf games that xbone will prevail this season.

    • XbotMK1

      LOL Yeah sure. Is that why nearly every video game centric site says other wise? Is that why Microsoft has been doing nothing but copying the PS4 ever since Xbox One was announced? Is that why every Xbox fan boy on the Xbox feedback site was asking for screenshots, fixes for party chat, and basically a PS4 with an Xbox logo on it? The fact is after using both systems from the start, and without question, the XBOXONE is overrall the WORSE system. No question. The system crashes often, the UI is slower, the Xbox Live network is slower, it offers less games, and the games load and perform worse. That is why Microsoft coppied PS+.

      Also, many consumers are avoiding Xbox like the plague after Microsoft lied about Kinect , DRM, cloud, and backtracked after getting destroyed in sales.

      I doubt another Halo and Forza rehash is going to save Xbox One. Microsoft’s exclusives line up has been extremely poor and fewer people have an interest in Xbox One when it’s weaker than it’s competitor and offers less games. Media sites are trying their best to save Xbox One by overhyping it’s holiday lineup. Where have the games been? Where were the games on the Xbox 360? Ask Phil Spencer. He was the one in charge of Microsoft’s lack of exclusive games last gen.

      • Anibal

        I agree I have both systems and I only have the free games on the one, of which all have totally sucked. I was a xbox 360 user over the ps3 but after all the mishaps and bullshit Microsoft stated. I jumped ship and now mainly use the ps4 over the inferior one. They should have called it the xbox 900.

      • ?????

        Hi John Doe.

      • “and few people have interest in Xbox One”

        Chuckles at the last NPD numbers showing more people wanting it than a PS4 for that month.

        • Country Boy Lucifer

          *in the USA.

          Fixed your comment for you ;)

          • What needs to be fixed? What part of NPD isn’t USA? Maybe fix what you think people can handle. Obviously unless you’re an idiot, NPD is USA numbers. Not sure who else would think else wise. And does not being in the USA show that some people have interest? Not sure why you felt the need to fix my comment. Even jokingly. I know NPD is USA. And obviously SOME people had interest more in the Xbox than the PS4 last month.

            Right?

          • Allen

            You were ignoring the fact that xbox lost in world wide sales that month and looking back it was a one month thing not seen again until October with Halo 5 and yep….losing the most important months of the year Nov-Dec. with Black Friday and Christmas defeats for xbox.

            NPD for the win though! Shall we recap 2015 through today?

        • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

          Amazing what kind of garbage you can sell when you continually lower the price. But go ahead and tout one month, only in the US, if that makes you feel better, just remember Sony hasn’t had to gouge the price in order to sell the $h!t out of PS4.

          • This Guy

            Still interesting that in the month of April, which was just one week after Bloodborne launched that the X1 with no new exclusives and supposedly inferior multiplats, could beat the PS4 in the U.S. market. Some say it was the price cut, which may be true, but then again it was the $100 price difference that was a big selling point for the PS4 originally. Business is business.

          • You’re right! Just like when the PS3 won a month finally in NPD’s after they lowered the price of the PS3. Right? It finally won a month. Amazing at the garbage you can sell. Just like the PS3 had to do.

        • Revolver Ocelot

          That 14k lead from 187,000 total when 500,000 PS4s were sold the previous month.

          • A win is a win. I love seeing you guys spin a win. You can’t handle it huh? One win… and you can’t even say hey.. the Xbox One won a month. Because SDF.. We know.

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Because it’s absolutely pathetic.

            The fact you feel the need to be congratulated over crumbs says it all. :)

          • It’s pathetic for the Xbox One to win a month of NPD sales? Wow.. that’s pretty wild then.

          • Revolver Ocelot

            It’s pathetic for desperate Xbox rats to interpret it as some kind of comeback, looking at the numbers. Then again I guess you guys need something to do while you wait for games. :)

          • Lol, this moron says “desperate” and then goes on to say “Xbox rat” when nobody has had anything bad to say. You’re rattled and making stuff up now. Also you say I said there’s a comeback? Lol.. learn to read and comprehend. I can’t say I’m not shocked you’re in desperation mode right now and flipping out because the X1 won a whole month of NPD’s. It’s ok man. The PS4 was never going to win over 2 years in a row of NPD’s like the 360 did to the PS3.

            It’s ok. You’re going to get to play God of War PS3 version again this holiday and all the Uncharted you already paid and played as well. It’s going to be ok. I’m sorry Xbox won a NPD finally. It’s really gotten to you.

          • Revolver Ocelot

            I was talking generally, loser, like your friends Dim Doggermania and Quatman and the rest. Learn to read and comprehend, you might not embarass yourself in future. 187,000! :)

            Hold on, end of October is nearly here, and you’ll finally get a game!

          • I have no idea who you’re talking about man… again.. you’re way more invested in this than me. Now you’re telling me to learn to read and comprehend … yet there’s nothing after that. You just throw out some numbers that you fear for some reason. I’m sorry the recent NPD loss has rattled you so bad.

            Dim Doggermania and Quatman?!??! WTF are you talking about? lol.. you are so rattled. Have fun with those remakes this holiday season. We’ll be playing new versions of ours.

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Of course you don’t. You lost your mind when MS dumped all over the back of their legs two years ago. 14,000 lead in April, hahaha! :)

            It’s cute watching you play dumb. You know who they are. :)

            Milked Halo (probably while the Disaster Chief Collection is still broken) yet another Forza and a Gears “remaster.” No wonder Papa Phil had to rent Tomb Raider with that weak lineup. Keep projecting. :)

          • Wow.. you’ve lost it. Uhm… I don’t spend all my time on Disqus… Again, have no idea who you’re talking about. I post on my Twitter and my website… speaking of which.. this whole conversation is going in a thread. This is too funny. Love it!

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Give me a buzz when you have a solid point to make, child.

            Yes, the aforementioned losers are the ones on Twitter you regularly cry with about the Xbone failure. But hey, I am glad to have provided you entertainment while you wait for games. :)

      So yes, there is a very good chance with the top shelf games that xbone will prevail this season*.

      * in the US.

      • This Guy

        Well the U.S. is one of the bigger markets. Sure it would be good to win over Europe again, but one step at a time.

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      You forgot to say in your personal opinion cause just making outlandish claims like “without question, XBOXONE is the overall better system” doesn’t actually make it so, I know major blow to your ego I’m sure.

      • This Guy

        It’s impossible to factually state that one console is better than another because given all the varying features they offer as well as exclusives, controller, and overall experience, it’s all opinion based. Telling me one has better specs than another means nothing. The PS3 was technically superior to the 360, but the sales nor the games actually showed it till near the end of the gen. If a person walked up to me and said the Dreamcast is the best console ever made, who am I to argue? If that’s what they think, then so be it.

    • jcog

      I have both to but I use the ps4 more beucase better graphic more powerful ps4 all the time

    • Yodaman

      You say overall better without any examples you gotta give a reason and really you have both?

  • Guester

    How many times you going to mention the x1 launch and ps4 launch. Who cares how much plastic each company sells. Let Sony and ms worry about it. The writing on this website is horrible. Like a grade 11 kids essay homework.

      Yes these arguments are childish but we need to talk to xbots in a language they can understand.

      • This Guy

        As opposed to Ponies who speak in b*llsh*t.

  • Country Boy Lucifer

    I think they might outsell the ps4 in the US but worldwide not even close.

  • GK15

    It’s not a stretch to think Xbox can win the US this holiday. They did last year and they might have an even better exclusive lineup this year.

    • Bramstons

      Windows 10 will also be integrated and that has huge potential, PC games and apps easily ported, over 1 billion people will have the Xbox app on their windows 10 giving MS the chance to show what they can do if they buy an Xbox One.

      Phil Spencer has already confirmed they are working on game streaming FROM PC to Xbox One so people who already have a mid range pc could play all the multi format and PC titles at a far far better resolution and framerates (than Xbox One or PS4) on the Xbox One.

      • GK15

        There’s a lot to be excited about. Streaming from PC would be awesome. You could build a nice rig and stream to your Xbox One, getting all the PC perks and play with your Xbox controller on your TV. Also the perks that come with having the Xbox app on PC. I hope they bring this feature

        • Revolver Ocelot

          You do know you can already plug a PC into a TV, right?

          • The PC Master Race

            And you never need a POS4 either. Never thought I’d see the day when you would admit your shitstation was as shit as the shitbox.

            You could stream with the Shitstation TV but that 720P streaming is hilariously bad. PC really is the only way forward :^)

      • Korgarath

        My PC is already hooked up to my TV (A 4k one at that), I’d be far more excited if you could say use the power of a high end gaming PC to enhance exclusive Xbox games (which are the only reason I would ever find myself buying an Xbox, since my PC is superior in every way) but I highly doubt that is ever going to be possible.

      • rudero

        I would not put to much hope into PC t Xbox. Makes absolutely no sense given their need for software sales. The software fills the bank for advertising and their much needed third party support. Their physical sale took a hit due to a less powerful machine, then take the hit on both? Because why would one need the Xbox one in order to stream the better version of the game from the PC that it takes to run it better?
        One never knows but, if PC to Xbox one ever happens, it will be limited. Guaranteed

      • Mert Kırdök

        Keep dreaming. That tank not even worth a penny.

      • Revolver Ocelot

        Or they can just plug their PC into their TV with a $3 HDMI cable instead of shelling out on a $300 streaming box.

        • The PC Master Race

          Or a $400 streaming box like the POS4 that can’t play games at 30FPS never mind 60FPS

          Actually just plug in the PC and play games and get real quality. No wonder the Playstation TV flopped. Because it was shit :^)

      • GotNews4Ya

        Its game streaming FROM Xbox TO PC.. not the other way around.. I am sorry but you won’t be able to play steam games on your Xbox.. Stop spreading misleading and incorrect information to make it seem like Windows 10 is the awesome sauce (Not to mention.. Why would someone stream a game to the Xbox when they could just play it on a better machine in their PC?). It could potentially be something special.. but for now.. It is just playing your Xbox One on your monitor.. woopty doo.

  • Moose and Squirrel

    Except for a few exclusives, they’re pretty much the same thing. Buy on price. I was able to pick up three Xbox One’s, one with Kinect, with three extra controllers for under $800 this past holiday season. On average about $80 cheaper than the better PS4 deals I saw. I might buy a PS4 when I can get a used one for well under $200 so I can play its exclusives. I’ll buy a Wii-U when I can get it and the 5-6 exclusives I want to play for <$200 total.

    • Barry Harden

      You’re buying a weaker system so they are NOT the same thing.

      Don’t be an XBot dickrider.

      • Did it hurt how the Wii destroyed the PS3 last gen?

        • This Guy

          Ooooohhhh SNAP!!!

        • Barry Harden

          Wii also destroyed Xbox360.

          Seeing how Nintendo totally lost this round, no it didn’t hurt at all.

          • That it did Barry.. that it did. You won’t see me in crazy land saying the opposite.

        • Tha Truth

          Does it hurt how the PS2 destroyed the pathetic, non – gaming Xbox 2 gens ago?

          Does it hurt how the PS3 destroyed the pathetic, non – gaming Xbox 360 last gen?

          Does it hurt that the PS4 has been destroying the pathetic, non – gaming Xbone every single month since this generation began?

          • Lol…. Uhm.. The PS3 “DESTROYED” the 360 last gen? It won over 2 years in a row of NPD numbers against the 360 last gen? ha ha ha.. you need a reality check. Ya.. PS2 of course was better than the original Xbox.. which brought us the huge selling and great game that is Halo. I loved my PS2.. it was way better than the Xbox. SOCOM for the win. PS2 should of and was the best by far. And it crushed everyone.

            You’re full of madness if you think the PS3 was anything close to the PS2.. or that it in your words… “Destroyed” the 360. It did nothing of the sorts. In fact… the 3rd party games were better on the 360 and you know the rest of the story in your denial land. Ha ha.. “Tha truth” Can’t even spell ‘the’ correct. But you’re tha truth. Lol.. ironic.

          • ?????

            Non gaming systems? What?
            And PS3 only outsold it by a few million. Not destroyed. lol

          • The PC Master Race

            What games? PS3 had no games. It was a blu-ray player.

          • Tha Truth

            And yet PS3 exclusives destroyed the non – gaming peasant trash on the PC on your precious Metacritic. How did that make you feel? What an ignorant, illiterate, pathetic, brainwashed mongrel shill you are desperately trying to defend your pathetic, dead, weak gaming platform. PC gaming is low – quality trash for morons and Metacritic has proven that, peasant.

          • The PC Master Race

            PS3 had no games.

            LOL Lair

            :^)

      • Moose and Squirrel

        Yeah there are a few specs difference. Nobody really cares except for rude emotionally retarded fanboys. If you’re taking time from your game to notice almost irrelevant performance and video differences, your game stinks.

        I’m not paying an extra $80 for those differences.

        Other thing is that while most online stuff was free with the PS3, I have to pay for it with the PS4. I already have Xbox Live subs we use with the 360. I’m not paying twice.

        • Barry Harden

          Such a butt-hurt fanboy. It doesn’t take much to notice the differences between games. It’s only your denial that’s holding you back from noticing.

          Wait till the games become more graphically demanding. The XBone will soon be relegated to 720p in order to compensate for the new graphics.

          As for your gibberish on paying online, this is your own fault for going with Xbox360. I didn’t make that mistake and as a bonus I still get monthly free games with BOTH PS3 and PS4 systems with one PS+ membership.
          Time for you to drop that Xbox and move on son.

          • ?????

            Guess what? I can get monthly free games on both Xbox systems too!
            How many 720p games have there been on Xbox?
            Man, what a fanboy.

          • Barry Harden

            Yet gamers had to pay for XBL on the Xbox360 for YEARS and got NOTHING. You’re such a fanboy to be boasting about getting NOTHING from Micro$oft. If it wasn’t for Sony, you’ll still be getting ass raped by M$. Swallow that fanboy.

          • Barry Harden

            Yes only started at the END of 2013.

            What about all those years you paid for XBL during the Xbox360 era? What did you get? Yeah that’s right, fuq all!

            Micro$oft dinged you guys silly.

            As for 720p games, look at this list and you’ll see.
            The PS4 outperforms the XBone. Big Time!!

            I’m sorry, I thought I was talking to a grownup. My bad.

          • The PC Master Race

            And if the xbone is at 720P the PS4 will be at 792P or 900P you dumb moron.

            Haven’t you realised you bought a piece of shit console yet?

          • Barry Harden

            Nope, PS4 has on MANY occasions hit the 1080p mark yet the XBone has failed. Either way the PS4 will ALWAYS outperform XBone.

            U mad son? Ram your head against a wall. That should fix it.

          • The PC Master Race

            1080P and 20FPS mark on the same settings. LOL.

            If the xbone is 720P, PS4 will be 900P or 792P. Your weak hardware is still as shit as the xbone :^)

          • Barry Harden

            HHAHAHAHA no. I’m enjoying 1080p games while XBone owners are stuck at 900p graphics. I see the difference. You don’t cuz you’re too pissed off.

          • The PC Master Race

            1080P and above on PC, loser. Your POS4 will be 900P if the xbone is 720P :^)

          • Barry Harden

            You’re still stupid aren’t you? 1080p BABY!! That ain’t changing!

            You never provided that $350 link to a PC that kills the PS4 in Witcher 3 gaming. Cuz it never existed huh? You fuq’n turd.

            Poor baby shill can’t see over 30FPS and is ignoring my links to witness Digital Foundry’s $350 PC annhilate the PS4 :^)

      Forza 5 Nov 2013

      Sunset Overdrive Oct 2014

      Halo 5 Oct 2015

      Look at the distance in time in months between each of these major 100% Xbone exclusive games and then realise that the Xbone hasn’t had THAT massive a games list than the PS4 like so many of you out there believe for some weird reason (I will explain that reason below). If you want to include remasters and Xbone/360 games on that list, the please do what yous aren’t doing and DO the same with PS4/PS3 remasters too then ^_^

      Oh and 2 of the games I said above, they aren’t THE reason to own an Xbone either like so many paid off gaming websites reported during the launch of Sunset last year, again, for some utter bizarre reason when the console got its second major exclusive FINALLY.

      • Steven Hiller

        How about we include games that people actually play. Titanfall featured gameplay that will be copied far into the future. Forza was the only driving sim 2 years before Sony got one on their platform. Ori was the best indie game this year, a huge hit on the x1. Rise and subset were the closest things we’ve had to flops and those were good games.

        On ps4 yup drive club, the order those were exclusives but we don’t talk about those games anymore. The reason way bb is so popular on ps4 is the lack of good exclusives.

        • Guest

          Its funny how you MS fanboys always talk of multiplatforms when you talk XB1 games but only compares them with true PS4 exclusives. It’s also funny how guys keep bringing up Ryse and how it was a good game while keep trashing Driveclub or The order (games that got better metacritic ratings). Also bringing indie when it suits you, and using subjective argument saying stuff like it was the best indie this year (that’s just not right)

          Either you compare PS4 AAA exclusives vs XB1 AAA exclusive. Or you say PS4 games that aren’t on XB1 vs XB1 games that aren’t on XB1.

        • Darius Fryar

          I guess you never heard of GT 1-5 the best racing franchise is gaming history they will be making a new 1 soon so dont cloud judgment in fanboyism lets be real everyone copied Nintendo in the beginning now everyone copies sony the ps2 online capabilities the ps3 web browsing and more like blu ray n blu tooth now the ps4 is showing us Whats up and offering alternatives to the way we play video games like adding the PlayStation Vita as a controller to your 3 or 4 or even the online app that allows you to do things from your phone to your console and that’s why Xbox is using Windows 10 because they have to keep up with the PlayStation everything that the PlayStation has done everything as far as free games as far as just in general Xbox has copy because the fanboys like you have been complaining why can’t we get stuff like PlayStation since day 1 after all the lies and hours of updates

          • Steven Hiller

            I’ve heard of it. Is it out yet? Nope. The online app is a copy of the x360s app which was out years ago. Ps4 is a direct copy of the x1. Sony always used NVIDIA hardware but they jumped ship to AMD and used an identical chip the x1 was using(a scaled back version of the x1s chip). And of course psn is a direct copy of live. Sony frantically bought gaikai and onlive after Ms demoed their own streaming service. So who’s copying who.

          • Tha Truth

            If Sony were copying Microsoft then all PS4 games would be in 900p. Microsoft built a trash, peasant console, Sony didn’t. You’ll just have to deal with that.

          • Steven Hiller

            Actually they both built trash consoles that are holding back gaming. You have to accept the ps4 is not a powerhouse system capable of state of the art graphics. Its at best midrange, and for every 1080p game that comes out sacrifices in visual fidelity are made.

            The only reason I think Xbox is better is Microsoft allows it devs to make unique games with interesting gameplay. Sony does not. If Sony were a strong competitor we would have gotten much better hardware instead of the Mobil procesors we’re stuck with.

          • Guest

            “The only reason I think Xbox is better is Microsoft allows it devs to make unique games with interesting gameplay. Sony does not.”

            Really? In what way is Sony preventing devs from making unique games with “interesting” gameplay?

          • Country Boy Lucifer

            Sometimes I’m convinced you are the king of the trolls lol

          • PC

            The PS4 and Xbox One are so similar, both are trash. PC easily beats them both. PS4 and Xbox One are almost the same hardware wise.

          • The PC Master Race

            Both are trash, peasant consoles that can’t do 60FPS. Deal with it :^)

            More lies? Maybe I should start calling you Steven Liar. :)

  • A4€ffort

    So far the Microsoft consoles have been terrible for video gaming. You either see this or you don’t. I’d like to think that the world has wisened up to this. And this glorious nation will soon follow. But you never know.

    • Bramstons

      Fanboy alert.

      • A4€ffort

        What a great contribution.

        • Bramstons

          Thank you, I like to be honest and to the point..

          • A4€ffort

            Perhaps you can share your thoughts on the subject? Since you like being to the point and all.

          • A4€ffort

            Yeah that’s what I thought. I’ll just use my Microsoft created OS to move along.

      • Mert Kırdök

        So what if he is a fanboy? With saying this you proved that you are a xbot .

    • ALightningBoldt

      You say the Xbox is “terrible for video gaming” and then you fail to back up your statement. I game on it everyday and I love it. It’s great for “video gaming.”

      • A4€ffort

        It’s not directed at the Xbox per say as it is directed towards Microsoft and what has happened to gaming since they started toying with the market.this began with the GameCube which they backed out of just like they backed out on the original playstation. I have a 360, and I use it. Doesn’t change the facts. Research the history .

    • What a great contribution.

      • A4€ffort

        Thanks. I mean I think it’s okay but hey I’ll take great.

        • No it was great. It shows us the fear is real.

          • A4€ffort

            Fear is present tense. I’m talking about the past. Microsoft and their reckless bridge burning crippled Nintendo for a while and created the Sony gaming division. They are also responsible for the large influx of DLC. Granted that was coming one way or another. There used to be balance in the market which in turn took pressure off companies like Nintendo to focus on what they specialize in. I’m glad you can share your opinion but maybe you should learn a thing or two about what it is you’re talking about.

          • Oh brother.

            The fear is enough for you to post your original post in here. What you’re talking about now has nothing to do with this holiday. You’re ranting about some kind of personal feelings that you believe are true, but are truly worthy of tin foil hat status. Weird how you think MS is so bad for gaming. Ha ha.. but whatever. You can’t change the way your type thinks. And that’s pretty out there.

          • A4€ffort

            Not MS is bad for gaming. MS has been bad for gaming. Then I listed the reasons why. It’s already happened. And the biproduct is consumers who settle for less while paying more. Playstation and Nintendo are guilty of the same thing out of necessity. DLC was am example I gave for this. And yes I am off topic at this point however it was you avoiding direct topics and instead jumping to petty insults and remarks. As for what I fear, my family getting hurt or the world going to war. I don’t fear a large company focusing on profits over quality. Cause it happens all the time. And it’s supported by people like you.

          • Ha ha ha.. you’re way too in deep man. People who have Xboxes like me also buy Playstations and Nintendos. We just prefer one more than the other. Again.. you’re way into your head on this one with weird thinking. MS hasn’t been bad for gaming at all. It’s made great products and has the best networking for gaming. Live is way better than PSN. Easily.

          • A4€ffort

            I’m glad you brought up live. in my experience Live has better matchmaking and stability than PSN. however if you did online gaming in the 90’s you would realize that the quality back then is better than it is with the consoles now. Only games that require a large dedicated server are justified in charging for online play. At this point in time I don’t think it’s asking too much to have online play free of charge for most games. Nor should it be asking too much to have cross platform servers available if we are going to pay. PC and Mac started doing this well over 20 years ago. And yet because we have people who are happy to settle and pay for less we keep ending up with less. This isn’t about which system is better, this is about the degradation of services provided by these companies mostly impart to the greed of Microsoft. Instead of becoming a community that seeks to be better as a team they come in trying to dominate which in turn raises the price on even the most simple of services. and I’m sorry that you don’t see this

          • A4€ffort

            haha that’s supposed to say becoming a community not bikini community although that does sound like a good idea

          • Lol… You just went off in a whole other direction now didn’t you. :)

          • A4€ffort

    Xbone will prob beat ps4 on the Christmas holidays in the US only but will lose worldwide again

    • Barry Harden

      Exactly. Just like the school system it seems like the other countries are churning out “intelligent” people which in turn become smarter consumers. They see the PS4 is a more powerful system where most games run at a higher resolution and frame rate. Why put money in a system that gives you less visual quality??

      No shortage of idiots in the US.

      • andrewsqual

        That’s not really the reason. The way I look at it, its pretty scary when a new gen console can’t even run an ancient game engine like the Unreal engine 3 at 1080p in games such as Mortal Kombat X and I use the game because nobody can use the “early SDK” bullcrap as an excuse.
        I would AVOID the console that couldn’t do that, and yet, its been happening with most games since launch. What kind of drop in quality will have to be put into Xbone games for them to run on an ACTUAL next gen engine like Unreal engine 4. We’ve seen the resolution of an actual incredible looking next gen engine like the Fox engine running on Xbone and it is quite worrying.

        • Barry Harden

          They will just drop the resolution to compensate. That’s what you do when you have a weaker GPU system in an XBone. The idiots who buy the system will put blinders on and claim they don’t see a difference.

          • JCheezy

            Bloodborne 18fps… Enough said. You claim Xbox is a “weaker” system but runs smoother and runs games more efficient. Explain please !?! Forza, one of the best visual games and high fps but yet never stutters like your one and only Bloodborne. Do tell, if our GPU is weaker then why is it better?

          • Revolver Ocelot

            “but runs smoother and runs games more efficient. Explain please !?!” It doesn’t.

            Forza 5 looks like a PS2 game.

          • JCheezy

            I don’t need to explain, especially after that last line you wrote. PS2 was a great console though. PS3…..not so much. PS4…verdicts still out but not a good start.

            I would take 20 fps or 18 fps over not getting a single major exclusive for 10-11 months.
            What’s funny that the game at 18fps has better metacritic score than ALL XB1 exclusive.

          • The PC Master Race

            Just like the idiots who buy a PS4 can’t see the difference between 30FPS and 60FPS after PC blows them out of the water, eh?

          • Barry Harden

            Paying over $1000 for your PC plus $300 upgrades every 2 years just so you can “blow” the console out of the water by playing games? Add to that the diminishing support for PC releases, constant software fixes, and the numerous hacks and cheats for online play.

            Yeah who’s the REAL idiot here?

          • The PC Master Race

            Oh poor butthurt console peasant trying to spread that $1000 PC myth when a $350 one built by Digital Foundry destroyed the PS4 in performance in The Witcher 3, GTA V and Project CARS along with “Diminishing Support” after 3 Japanese publishers announced extensive steam suport, the same amount of patches for consoles delivered through steam and the fact consoles have more hackers and cheaters these days while PC has VAC Protection.

            Stay cucked, console shill :^)

          • Barry Harden

            Lying again? Show me the article that states a $350 PC runs the Witcher 3, GTA V and Project CARS, better than a PS4. You’ve resorted to twisting facts and that’s truly pathetic.

            You lost the argument and you can’t handle the cold hard truth!

          • Barry Harden

            Knowing how much you have to pay for a proper gaming PC and the problems that come with PC gaming, no one on consoles will care about being blown out of the water. You keep your money pit while all the publishers will be releasing the REAL games on consoles.

            Enjoy bitch!

          • The PC Master Race

            What problems come with PC gaming? Everything is automatic. There’s less configuration and crashes than the consoles.

            Enjoy your 30FPS, paid online and Cloud DRM coming soon money pit :^)

          • Barry Harden

            NO it’s not automatic as you describe it. There’s a multitude of patches, fixes, and clean up to maintain a PC. A windows PC accumulates garbage over a year of use. It SLOWS down without proper maintenance.

            Configuration is endless as you have multitude of settings from optimizing the BIOS to the switch settings for Video, sound, and OS. Some setting combination makes a PC unstable.

            BIG publishers are leaving the PC scene and focusing where the REAL money is: consoles.

            Enjoy your niche PC.

          • The PC Master Race

            Funny how that is completely inaccurate and everything is automated like Windows update. Steam downloads patches and configures them for me. AMD even downloads the drivers automatically for me.

            Tell me what publishers are leaving too. Seems more and more are joining the PC Master race.

            Stay mad, irrelevant console shills :^)

          • Barry Harden

            Oh really? Some of the biggest console games are not even on the PC.

            You just stay salty fool!

        • The PC Master Race

          What’s hilarious is POS4 can’t even handle Fox engine either and it has been detailed already

          POS4 is a garbage console that can’t run modern engines. It won’t even run UE4 properly. In fact the demo they showed at the reveal in UE4 was 720P but I guess they were trying to get people used to that resolution for their upcoming VR which is 720P.

          I wonder what drop in quality developers will have to do to get UE4 running on a hunk of shit like the PS4 :^)

    Yeah Micro$oft won April but at what cost? They recently revealed their earnings quarter and the Xbox division showed a loss from all the deep discounting they did on the XBone hardware.

        Sony is reorganizing and the monumental success of the PS4 will earn it a profit in 2015.

        I’ll keep my PS4 while you’ll still be sinking money into that POS pc.

        Enjoy it clown.

        • The PC Master Race

          A “Monumental success” yet earning less money than Nintendo. How delusional, Barry

          Bankruptcy awaits :^)

          • Barry Harden

            Nintendo is losing money on the WiiU. You don’t know your numbers or the gaming business.
            For you; stupidity has arrived. ;)

          • The PC Master Race

            That’s not what Nintendo’s financial report says.

            Meanwhile at Sony, 1.2 billion dollar loses :^)

  • andrewsqual

    If the US is the whole world, probably. If however this entire article WASN’T talking about the US like it is the entire world (which it sadly clearly is) then, no, it will not, not in a million years.

    • The PC Master Race

      The rest of the world will evolve to superior PC gaming after they realise the POS4 is nothing but rehashes and 30FPS garbage at 800P. Oh wait, they already are. 125 million steam accounts. 6:1 in favor of PC.

      PC gaming already won the generation. Game set and match, loser :^)

  • PachterStation

    Sony won’t deliver the games for the PS4, because it’ll still sell. Sony have never released a lot of games for its consoles, more so the PSP and Vita, the Vita being the worst supported console in Sony’s history. Can’t remember that far back with the PS and PS2, but the PS3 didn’t exactly rain Sony games. Same will happen with the PS4, more so games full of quick time events and cut scenes.

    • jb227

      You are crazy if you think that PS3 didn’t have many exclusives. In comparison to the 2 other consoles there really is no competition, Sony released the most & the most well reviewed exclusives of any of the 3 consoles last gen hands down. I checked out for most of the PS2 era but there were a buttload of exclusives then as well. PS4’s library isn’t massive in terms of AAA first party exclusives at this point but neither is Xbox One’s, and the exclusives that are there are predominantly 2nd & 3rd parties that could easily see release on Sony’s console at some point, just as titles like Bioshock, Mass Effect & Dead Rising last gen. Time will tell & its all relative but there is no question that Sony has a long history of putting out more exclusives than any other console up to this gen.

    • Guest

      What?!
      Do you even own any PS console?

      Just as a fact, the PS4 has
      1) more games than the XB1
      2) more AAA exclusives than the XB1

      3) more upcoming AAA exclusives announced than the XB1.

      I seriously don’t know where you are getting your information from.

  • rudero

    Hard to say since Microsoft hides behind all sorts of sales pr talk. Their holiday “sales” from 2014 did not empty inventory till April. The assassins creed bundle. Sold through, probably not. World wide, definitely not. U.S. “Sales” for November and December. They definitely have trusty old exclusives to maybe help but since they will not even show anything for the limited edition halo bundle, the confidence seems low.
    Shall see.

    • This Guy

      “Their holiday “sales” from 2014 did not empty inventory till April”
      And yet they beat the PS4 in November and December.

      • rudero

        With reported shipped. Those consoles that shipped did not touch consumers hands in those months. ie pr sales talk.
        The number one available Xbox in all retail locations, the shipped consoles for the holidays, were the assassins creed bundles. The only sales actually and more factually recorded were software. Now, go back and add up the sales of assasins black flag. You will find your answers since Microsoft does not give any consumers the answers this gen.
        Plus, barely squeaking out a “claimed” win in two months in one territory does nothing against that dominates the majority of sales in the same territory let alone their world wide continuous sales victory since launch.

  • Tga215

    Xbox ftw

    • Vincent

      PS4 ftw

  • Truthhurts24

    X1 will get the victory this holiday

  • atrimus

    No wonder most of the year tends to be barren. We’re about 6 months out and were already talking about the holidays.

    • Guest

      Looks like it’s MS’s strategy. Launch everything in oct-nov and spend the rest of the time hyping the games that will come at the end of the year.

      • This Guy

        At least they can confidently say when the games are coming out. When’s GT coming out again? Ratchet and Clank? Uncharted 4? The Last Guardian? …and so on.

        • Guest

          I just don’t see your point. The PS4 has more AAA exclusives than the X1. It already had two major exclusives this year. They’ll be getting Until Dawn, Tearaway Unfolded, Disgaea 5 this year.

  • Tha Truth

    Anyone who thinks Microsoft is going to win in the worldwide hardware charts at this point is an ignorant, brainwashed shill beyond any salvation. That’s just a fact. The PS4 has absolutely slaughtered the Xbone in EVERY SINGLE MONTH since the two consoles launched in the worldwide charts. Despite Microsoft’s desperation price cuts and overhyped, low – quality shovelware games like Halo and Forza the PS4 continued to destroy the Xbox DONE by constantly releasing far better games and offering better experiences.

    The gap between the two consoles is around 11 million units, you really think Microsoft are going to turn that around with their pathetic, weak line – up of shovelware crap this year? Keep dreaming. Another cheap, re – skinned Forza game? Yawn. Forza 5 and Forza Horizons 2 were both crap and failed to move consoles so why would this one be any different?

    Sony have already had the best quality of exclusive games this year with Bloodborne and The Order, that’s exactly why the PS4 continues to dominate the sales charts and the Xbone keeps sinking to the bottom where it belongs.

    • The PC Master Race

      Oh look. It’s the ignorant brainwashed Sony shill trying to call the other console shills ignorant and brainwahsed.

      Your pathetic console is pathetic and the fact you listed The Odor 800P Metacritic 66 shows how desperate a console peasant you are. Your console is weak and pathetic just like you. PC gaming is dominant and will win E3 while PS4 sales continue to shrink every month. Nvidia are already set to sell more gaming GPU’s than PS4’s this year. AMD will soon match.

      All you will have is your peasant 30FPS :^)

      • Tha Truth

        Oh look it’s the spasticated, ignorant, iliiterate, dogturd peasant vermin scum trying to defend his pathetic, dead peasant PC platform.

        I see you keep desperately clinging to Metacritic like some sort of saving grace, I guess that means that you’re admitting that Playstation exclusives like The Last Of Us, Uncharted, LittleBigPlanet, MGS4 and Bloodborne are better than all of the low – quality, scabby games for morons on the PC? Because that’s what your precious Metacritic is telling you.

        Maybe you should check that the facts are actually in your favour before quoting them you spasticated, uneducated vermin gimp scum. Your peasant PC gaming platform is weak and pathetic inhuman trash, just like you. Playstation exclusives always get better scores than PC exclusives because PC games are trashy peasant scum games reserved only for half – bred vermin like yourself.

        Your pathetic, weak, underpowered, peasant vermin PC isn’t even capable of macthing quality with Uncharted 2, a console game from 2009. HAHAHAHA, you wasted all your money on overhyped and overpriced graphics cards and now you’re left with trash, vermin games which flop on Metacritic. Loser.

        • The PC Master Race

          PC’s metacritic advantage massively outweighs PS3, console peasant loser

          Stay cucked at 30FPS, console shill :^)

  • Even if it outsells the PS4 in US it will be still outsold 2 to 1 worldwide. So it wouldn’t matter in the big scheme of the Universe!

    • The PC Master Race

      Much like how the POS4 doesn’t matter in the face of 125 Million Steam accounts. So 6:1 in favor of PC gaming. No wonder Square, Arc and NIS are abandoning PS4 “exclusives” :^)

  • deeadynamo

    no obviously the number one worst console ever has no chance

  • otherZinc

    The XBOX ONE will win October, November, and December; decisively!

    Halo 5 will be the catalyst, Forza Motorsport 6, Fable Legends, & Windows 10 and DirectX 12 will solidify the XBOX ONE for the rest of the generation.

  • Xbox One is going to rock the balls of the PS4 in games this holiday and sales will be awesome in the USA. Mark… it … down. Just wait till E3. Lot’s of people going to be seeing green after E3.

    • Revolver Ocelot

      Ah yes, “Just Wait For [conference],” the Xbone’s most popular game.

      • Actually.. wait for MORE games to be announced. We have plenty already coming for the holidays. As already feared from the Playstation fan.

        • Revolver Ocelot

          Plenty coming after nine months of tumbleweeds.

          We already know most of your E3 will be a retread of last year’s. With any luck MS might deign to bless you with some gameplay.

          • funny… the Xbox One has had the better overall games all gen long so far. Way better on average exclusives. Keep fighting reality. Enjoy games like The Order and DC and LBP and we could go on. At least you guys finally have Bloodborne. Good solid game. Have fun waiting until Spring.

          • Revolver Ocelot

            You meqn that few weeks after The Order was released and nothing was released on the Xbone, which corrected itself after Bloodborne was released? That’s nice.

            Your delusion and bitterness has always been cute. Keep waiting for games. :)

          • Keep waiting for games? I love when you have to keep changing your screen names because of how much a troll you are. Stick to one name. News flash.. we’ve been playing games all over. Keep pretending the PS4 exclusives aren’t averaging crap ratings. It’ll make you feel better.

          • Revolver Ocelot

            Lmao. Did it once over two years because because my old one was too confrontational, rat. Deal with it. :)

            Keep waiting, cretin, and stay in denial about the Shitbox’s low averages. :)

          • The PC Master Race

            It’s just like the POS4’s low averages.

            Every worthwhile game was on PC last year. Why buy a POS4. Metacritic doesn’t lie. Especially about The Odor 800P Metacritic 66 :^)

  • Rubix99

    Xbox One may certainly win this holiday season again in the USA but it’s already lost the global console war.

    Xbox One would need to beat PS4 in the USA by a HUGE margin in order to remain competitive. A draw or close call simply won’t do it.

    The Xbox 360 led by almost 20 million more consoles sold in the USA last generation, and it was the ONLY territory it beat PS3. The PS3 had to spend a lot of the generation playing catch up……especially Europe which has proven to be Sony’s greatest market. PS2 and PS3 sold more consoles in Europe than they did in the US.

    Xbox One is getting completely hammered to bits in Europe by the PS4…..and this time PS4 does not have to play catch up due to being a year behind like last generation. The fact Xbox One is behind PS4 in the USA (albeit pretty narrowly) means that its not recouping the losses its suffering everywhere else in the world.

    Put simply, without total and utter market dominance in the USA…..Xbox One can not even be competitive, let alone win the generation.

  • Tony

    XBOX better UI
    XBOX better controller
    XBOX better online service and gaming
    XBOX better exclusives
    XBOX fans more mature
    Multiplatform games the same and super barely noticeable at some times even if ur watching with a telescope..
    So overall, XBOX better system.

    • GotNews4Ya

      You do realize these are all opinions right? Not one fact here. Moving Along.

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    LOL, nope.

    • The PC Master Race

      And the POS4 will die because no games and PC gaming wins.

      A bright future unless you are a console shill :^)

  • Jimmy Rowe

    I expect that Sony will announce their holiday line-up is something like Tearaway Unfolded, Hellblade, an Uncharted Collection, No Man’s Sky, Persona 5 and Until Dawn, and that they’ve got 3rd party deals with games such as Star Wars: Battlefront and Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate which is resulting in exclusive content.
    Chances are that they’ll also talk about some of the more minor exclusives coming such as The Witness, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Let It Die, Rime, Wild, The Tomorrow Children, and more.
    It’s also very likely that they’ll be showing off what’s coming in 2016. It’s probable that games such as God of War, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Ratchet and Clank, Horizon, Gran Turismo 7, The Last Guardian and Street Fighter V will be shown off.
    I mention The Last Guardian because I genuinely believe they’ll show it in an attempt to entice players beyond their rather average holiday line-up.
    Oh, and Project Morpheus will feature prominently.

  • ?????

    Lots of PS fanboys in here huh? Say something about their fanbase, don’t you think? :^)

      I see that you’re the same old hypocrite little xbot.
      Anyway, the real question here is how many of the xbots posting here are actually you with different user tag/disqus account?

        None, Guest.
        Hypocrite? Look at all the PS fanboys in here.

        • Guest

          I would find your comment valid if you weren’t yourself trolling PS4 topics.

  • Revolver Ocelot

    I don’t understand this obsession with the holidays. Unless you’re a child, you expect a steady stream of software throughout the year.

    By the time the end of October hits, the PS4 will have another million unit cushion in the US.

    • The PC Master Race

      Which has happened on the PC.

      On the PS4 and xbone. No games this year or the next. Guess you are going to have to beg Shill Yoshida harder for more remasters of the same games from last gen :^)

  • Hassan Albaghli

    “the Xbox 360 was the definitive leader, between it and the PS3, from the beginning of the last generation”
    the PS3 sold more unites in global scale, Xbox360 managed to sell more units in US region only, so i’d disagree that the Xbox was the leader of the last generation.
    also Sony have announced that they’ll be shifting there concentrating on the gaming sector of there business, after they’ve stopped producing LEDs and mobile phones.

  • ideologic

    There is no way I will ever play a MGS game for the Xbox given the series’ history with PS, therefore I will be purchasing a PS4.

    • The PC Master Race

      Considering the series history you should be playing the PC version since Metal Gear started as a PC game. Why buy a trash console for TPP?

      • A4€ffort

        Yes I’m going to boot up my commodore 64 and get back to punching dogs. Consoles are computers, just mass produced and uniquely coded so the games don’t get pirated. PC gaming is starting to trend again because consoles are becoming rip offs. If it was about the graphics then pc gaming would never have went away.

  • Yodaman

    Id like to say that the Xbox one is just a shinier x box 360

  • Allen

    You guys should do another one of these!
