Sony Boasts PS4 Victory for June, Also Top Console for Next-Gen Games’ Sales

by on July 17, 2014 6:31 PM 189

Sony Computer Entertainment just released its own comment on the latest North American NPD figures that saw the PS4 beat its rival, the Xbox One,  for a margin that was probably quite a lot narrower than in the previous months due to a strong June for Microsoft’s console.

PlayStation Brand Marketing Senior Vice President Guy Longworth shared the company’s celebratory statement, the content of which were shared by Cnet Editor Ian Sherr.

We now have a comment from Sony, who says PS4 was #1 in sales (for US) for sixth consecutive month, and remains cumulative leader.

Sony also says it was the top console for next gen titles, including Watch_Dogs, UFC, FIFA 14. #NPD

Longworth himself also responded to a tweet by Gametrailers host Geoff Keighley, mentioning that Sony is simply trying to bring the best games to its fans.

“@geoffkeighley: PS4 was #1 in sales for June per @LuckyLongworth” just trying to bring best games to our fans..

Looks like Sony still managed to come up on top, despite the fact that Microsoft doubled sales of the Xbox One in June.

Unfortunately we have no way to know just how close the two consoles were at the end of the June race, since neither Sony nor Microsoft provided any hard numbers for their sales.

    It seems the $400 Xbox SKU didn’t do as much as they’d hoped.

    Looking at July’s online charts, Xbox One sales are back down to 70-80k levels in the USA. PS4 will easily take July and likely every NPD in 2014.

    • doplerradar

      Stop trolling. July isn’t over yet. Everyone should hope that Xbox give PS a run for its money. It is good for both companies.

          It is a long console race. If anyone learned from the PS3 is that anything can happen.

          • Porcu Peth

            what we learned is to never dismiss Sony.
            MS isn’t Sony.

          • Negi Springfield

            Despite it releasing one year after the Xbox 360 launched , Despite having a 600 price tag , People bought it and PS3 surpassed Xbox 360 in world-wide sales.

            The differences between PS3 and Xbox 360 , Is that PS3 have more global appeal than the Xbox 360.

          • doplerradar

            It wasn’t a easy fight though. Sony had to work hard for it.

          • Gamez Rule

            No matter what’s stated by people, it doesn’t change the facts. And those facts are no MS home console has outsold a Sony console to date with *total figures. ( Which doesn’t look like that will change this gen too ) While PS4 is the most wanted console by gamers to date when compared to any current generation console. ( Clearly shown by sales and demand )

          • Calum Sutherland

            The PS3 eventually had much better games, still had free online gaming, PSN improved drastically, and became a cheap Blu-Ray player.

            What has Xbox got over PS4? I highly doubt microsoft will maintain the arguably narrow lead in terms of exclusives…

          • FoRSaKeN 1

            Not to mention that the PS3 had the only Blu Ray Player that could be updated on the internet.

          • Gamez Rule

            And lets not forget that PS3 was a better built console out the two ( RROD for years was not good ) At one time 360 failure ratings were being classed as over 50% while PS3 was never over 10%.

          • Bryan

            PS3 had reasons for people to buy it.
            -Blu-Ray player
            -First party games
            -Backwards compatibility (initially)
            -Lots of different types of game genre
            -Good hardware just misunderstood because it was hard to program on
            -Long support after next gen consoles.
            -PS+ free games and good discounts
            -Cross Buy

            Right now xBox One has:
            -Weaker hardware than PS4 for same price
            -Weaker game genre compared to PS4
            -xBox Gold giving free games
            -Blu-Ray
            -Halo universe (But that’s just one genre)
            -More shooters (more cratered to western audience)
            -Option for voice commands and motion commands with kinect
            -Maybe better online play? Not that it really matters now because PSN is pretty stable too. And comparing player base now PS is the place to go currently
            -TV features (more western audience based)
            -AR game play? (not yet)

            Comparing to PS4:
            -Stronger hardware for same price without camera
            -Stronger game selection/genre (craters to everyone)
            -First party games
            -PS+ giving free games per month and discounts
            -Blu-Ray
            -Optional voice command and motion control with PS eye
            -Online play that is also stable, bigger current gen player base
            -Sleek form factor
            -PS Now (not yet)
            -Morpheus (not yet)

            Comparing the current gen and past gen consoles we can see PS3 had features that could tempt xBox360 buyers, while the current xBox One can only tempt those interested in the western focused features. I don’t know about you, but I think xBox One will have a hard time catching up without some exclusive features to win us over.

          • doplerradar

            Not all the great features of the PS3 were there at launch. Things like PS+ as well as some of its most iconic games came later.

          • Bryan

            Yes, thus my last statement. Unless xBox comes out with some feature that is a must have, it will be hard for them to catch up.

          • FoRSaKeN 1

            Sony also owns 20+ 1st party developers that churn out masterpieces.

            Microsoft relies on throwing its money around to secure masterpieces from AAA 3rd party Studios. Unfortunately.. the cost of development, and falling behind in console sales is really going to hurt Microsoft more than they ever knew.

            Eventually the money will run out if they keep trying to secure deals for outside studios games. Sony on the other hand, has its own studios churning out new ips, They don’t have to pay to have them exclusive.. They already own the ip, because it’s their studio.

          • A Gamer

            I have a shopping list of about 8 – 10 games I’m wanting to buy for the Xbox One, when it comes out in my territory in September. I think all of them are Microsoft exclusives. The PS4 has maybe 1 game.

            I can’t speak for anyone else, but personally, the power of a console means nothing to me. I’ll buy whatever console has a nice library of games I want to play. That’s the way it’s always been.

          • Not_true
          • JustGaming

            I just love how some think that PS4 has no exclusives. They have the most first party studios out of anyone IIRC, and there is still a s***-ton to show over the next year.

          • Kazuhira Miller

            Your comparisons were really entertaining to read.

          • FoRSaKeN 1

            lol… The PS3 was the more powerful system, and It had the longest lifespan of the two consoles too, which is why it still has plenty of console exclusive games coming to it.. It is just a miserable time to develop for.. and it took years for developers to understand the tech, and how to maximize its potential.. not to mention the fact it was in Xbox 360′s shadow, due to a high price point, and a year behind launch..

            Sony also has been in the business for 8 more years. They have consistently devastated Microsoft at every point in this generation.. If it keeps it up.. we are looking at another console maker who will fade away before the generation ends.. I guess all those Steambox hopefuls will get their chance to compete after all!

          • doplerradar

            Saying they have “devastated” Microsoft in every point of this generation is a great exaggeration. It is almost sounds like you are hopeful that Microsoft leaves the console business.

          • FoRSaKeN 1

            Uh… this is a fact, Sony has been destroying the Xbox in every single aspect this generation. Name one point in time where the Xbox has shined over the PS4? AAA multi-platform titles? Nope. Higher Resolution? Nope. Better Hardware? Nope. Higher Sales? Nope.

            Microsoft has constantly changed its stance this generation to try and convince more people to make the transition to the Xbox One. It finally gained a bit of momentum in June from their E3 and Price Drop / Kinectless SKU. Unfortunately, not only are they alienating more and more people by jumping back and forth to whatever seems to gain Microsoft more sales.. They have fallen from grace. They at one point and time were the more confident of the two system’s producers. They knew they had a solid lead most of last generation, and it showed with how they acted, by just doing whatever they wanted, and throwing money around with Major AAA publishers and developers.. to secure some solid titles, including The Witcher, and Alan Wake to name a few.

            I don’t wish failure upon anyone, but I do like the fact that Sony has been able to bounce back, and give its fans a chance to blow off some of that steam they had built up from the last generation. I can only tell you the countless times that I was berated, for just simply purchasing a PS3 game during last generation, and how “superior” the xbox 360 was compared.. etc etc.. and I never even initiated a conversation with these people in the first place, let alone tried to discuss a console war with them.

            I just find it funny how much it has changed in the past couple years.. and how all the Xbox fans, who were once the ones providing no mercy, and talking smack for YEARS about how superior they were.. are the one’s crying and wondering why people aren’t “Mature” enough to stop bashing one console or the other.. but in the same breath start berating Sony and its fans.

            Hypocrits are the worst kind of people.. I can’t stand them.

            It just seems weird that Xbox is trying so hard to regain the lead, or in this case.. shorten up the deficit, because let’s be honest.. its basically 2:1, and It will take quite some time of Xbox sales dominating the PS4, in order for them to even catch up, and meanwhile.. the CEO of Microsoft issues a statement to its employee’s discussing the “core” of Microsoft and saying that Xbox was not the “Core”. but basically is a substantial part of the business. Shareholders have grown weary of the console, and don’t understand gaming. They have been increasing the pressure they are putting upon Microsoft to split the company or sell the Xbox Division.

            I don’t really forsee it happening any time soon.. but who knows? If I could predict the future, I would be rich.. right? I do think.. if the PS4 continues to pull away from the Xbox, the shareholders might just win there argument. (Within the next couple of years, if the PS4 keeps it up the way it has been.. we could be looking upwards of a 10+ million console deficit.

          • Manoj Varughese

            The thing is PS3 had a hardware that could stand up to the competitor. It produced better exclusives, more or less similar multiplatform titles but at 720p and not SD.

      • Not_true

        Not trolling, just looking at the sales charts and making a prediction.

      • Alter

        Give it a “real” MH, and i might buy it.

    • Gamez Rule

      Wasn’t these figures shown below the Xbones NPD totals? If so that shows that even with a Kinect-less console it didn’t outsell the Xbones with Kinect? So Kinect-less console hasn’t helped sales really as the Feb-March sold more with Kinect?

      January 2014…..141,000
      February 2014…258,000
      March 2014……..311,000 ( titanfall )
      April 2014……….115,000
      May 2014………..77,000
      June 2014……….197,000 ( no Kinect added )

      Even with the Xbone weighing in at 197,000 it’s still 72,000 behind PS4.

      • Not_true

        Yes, and July 2014 looks like a return to sub-100k going by online charts.

        • Gamez Rule

          Keep this thread open so when July 2014 comes in it can be updated with… ( Hahahh )☺

  • superkarma

    According to most Xbox fanboys, one of the deciding reasons why the PS4 has been so successful is because it was $100 cheaper. So much for that excuse.

    It’ll be interesting to see next month’s numbers to see if the X1 can keep pace or if it was only a 1 month spike for the new SKU. It’ll also be interesting to see if Microsoft’s plan to layoff 18,000 people affects their public image with the X1.

    • doplerradar

      Price is always a factor though. It was one of the things that hurt the PS3 at launch. I still believe the price drop will play a major role in the Xbox One’s future. I am not sure how laying off 18,000 employees would effect their public image. 2/3 of the employees are from Nokia and are the result of the merger. The only way I can see it effecting it is how people view shutting down Xbox Entertainment Studio (TV show studio).

      • Not_true

        The price drop should sell more consoles in the future, but its impact is limited with no big exclusives until Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive, and Halo Collection.

    • Not_true

      It was only a 1 month spike. July sub-100k again.

    • DLConspiracy//

      I don’t really see how MS layoff reflects on Xbox in any shape or form. Just like it doesn’t matter that Sonys stock layoffs of an entire Vaio division isn’t affecting PS.

          let me guess, “If Sony turned it around, MS can do it”? Difference is MS isn’t Sony. Sony doing it only proves Sony can do it again, it doesn’t prove anyone else can do it.

            Nintendo did it also, where the Wii turned their fortunes around from the less-than stellar performance of the Gamecube.

            Sega did it where the Mega Drive turned their fortunes around from the disastrous Master System.

            Microsoft’s 360 was significantly more successful than their first system.

            They managed to sell hundred millions of Wii but delivered lackluster titles to the end of its lifetime.

          • Porcu Peth

            no they didn’t, because they didn’t turn around the Master System or the Gamecube. You just proved that Sony was the only one to do it. Turn the PS3 around.

          • albatrosMyster

            to be fair MS are working really hard to fix WHAT CAN BE FIXED… however current management cannot go in and enable that second GPU because Mattrick is obviously gone with the secret sauce! So the core problem with the xb1, its hardware, will always remain.

      I think all the Xbox fans should probably stop talking on forums and just let everyone wear their arms out from jerking each other off.

      • FoRSaKeN 1

        it’s funny, because I bet 5 years ago, you were one of the one’s abusing PS3 owners about their shitty choice of console, etc etc.. and now that the console war has made a turn for the worst, for your particular brand… you have all of the sudden matured. (Only within the past few days too I might add, because I seen a post with you flaming the crap out of someone and shouting praise from the rooftops with Xbox One love)

        • DLConspiracy//

          That’s pretty assumptive of you. I wasn’t involved in any of the online propaganda of the last great console war. Perhaps that is why this sort of attitude is not popular with me. I simply never experienced it. I think its funny that you would assume that though.

          Apparently you were not OK with that behavior then but now since its in your favor you are totally OK with supporting it. Its like the kid who got picked on by jocks has now turned into a jock himself. Isn’t that ironic. Kind of makes you just as bad as your assumption of me. Maybe worse since you know what its like. Just a thought.

          • TheLastGuardian

            The only problem with that wall of text is the fact that you try too hard to hide the fact that you’re an xbox stealth troll. So the question really is who’s the biggest idiot…those who can see through BS or you believing you can hide it by writing walls of text about neutrality. You’re obviously too invested – that is obvious for everyone and those who know your post history already know where you stand. Good luck in your charade.

            You won’t have to worry about me. I am probably going to trade in my PS4 for a Wii U. It’s a better community than the likes of you. In fact I will sell you mine for $320 w/ Wolfenstein.

            Also… I don’t know why you want to get rid of your PS4.. It is got a ton of sweet exclusives coming out.. and Destiny looks fantastic on it. Then again, the only reason I could honestly figure you don’t like the PS4 as much as the Xbox(since you referenced community and getting a Wii U) is that most of your friends are not playing on the PSN, but on Live. Which in that case.. no amount of games would ever make you switch..

            It’s the opposite for me.. Most my buddies are on the PSN and my Xbox Live only has like 15 friends on it.. and most of them are random people I met playing Titanfall.

          • GotNews4Ya

            I own both systems, and if you pay attention to anything I post, I don’t favor one side any more than the truth. PC is the best place to play if you want to max out settings.. if you’re a console fan, then PS4 has the strongest hardware, and pretty solid first party studios, if you enjoy Gears / Halo / Fable, then Xbox is your main guy. I do not believe in berating others, but I also do not like to read blatant lies on either side of the fanboy wars. Therefore I try to argue both sides, when either side steps out of bounds and says something silly.

            I apologize for lumping you in with the other people who bashed people during the 360 era, but It was more or less a presumption, that anyone who is saying how crappy the PS4 is.. (which is really pushing it, and blind fanboyism) and how much more amazing the Xbox One is.. that they are more than likely the same people who bragged even harder, when their system really did have the upper hand. See how I made that assumption at least?

            Anyways, I just enjoy solid debates, and I am happy to own all 3 consoles.. I purchased a 250 GB Wii U Deluxe day one.. PS4 Day One.. and Xbox One.. on you guessed it.. Day One.

            Mainly because I enjoy games way too much, for a console war to interfere with me playing solid games like Fable / Uncharted 3 / Last of Us / Dead Rising / Forza / GT / Titanfall / Infamous / etc.

            One of the biggest games this fall for me is Sunset Overdrive. I have loved Insomniac games all the way back in their early days. I will continue to support them because I enjoy their games.

            Hope you have a good weekend. As for your PS4, I’ll buy it for 250. Depending on what accessories you got, I’ll even pay you more.

          but ive seen many of hes post on ign

      • Not_true

        Nobody’s forcing you to be here.

        • DLConspiracy//

          What does that have to do with anything. You are usually above this sort of thing. I guess true colors come out with those you least expect. Or should I just post memes and jokes to help add to the bs?

          • Not_true

            Xbox will get a sales recovery eventually, it’s just poking at the ms fanboys who grasp at straws and end up constantly wrong.

          • DLConspiracy//

            It sours more than just the few you are referring to. Hey, whatever makes people feel better. It is pushing me further away from the PS community. Been debating it rather seriously as of late. I am sure I am not the only multi console owner who feels this way.

          • jayflow

            Well I don’t feel that way. I own both and I think its pretty entertaining to see fanboys get all sensitive on both sides about their choice of plastic. If you don’t like what the minor few of either community(MS or PS) is doing don’t read the comment section. Read the articles and keep it moving. Simple as that!

          • DLConspiracy//

            Yeah maybe your right. I thought I could maybe open peoples minds up that it’s nice on both sides of the fence. Who knows. Maybe I can finally get the Wii U that I have been wanting to get instead and trade in my PS4. There are a lot of kids in Nintendo but they seem to be much nicer to one another. They just enjoy games.

          • jayflow

            If your trading in your PS4 because of a few fanboys I think its time you get out and enjoy the world a little more, lol. You’re taking this thing way too serious.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Thanks. Appreciate the set up to take a stab at me. Nevermind the people who spend all day hating people. They are perfectly normal.

            I thought we were talking… Thanks for that. Pretty cool of you.

          • jayflow

            Wasn’t trying to take a stab at you, but come on, lighten up a little man. Have fun and keep it gaming.

          • aintwhatitlookslike

            This guy takes the fan boy banter way to seriously its a bit of fun god. Nobody is taking a stab at you. Just admit your really gutted the xbone is not doing aswell as you was predicting. Sony is running away with it

          • DLConspiracy//

            No matter what I say. You already made your mind up. I don’t care about sales. Popularity doesn’t determine the type of games I play, consoles I own, friends I make, Movies I love or anything else for that matter. IF I like it. I like it. End of story.

            What I have said over and over. Is that I hate people who act like they are better than other people. Plain and simple. That sort of attitude gets people bitch slapped or punched in REAL life. What’s to like about a person who does that?

          • aintwhatitlookslike

            Lol really ?? This guy must be a paid Microsoft shill. Trust me hes been the xbone defense force since day one

          • DLConspiracy//

            Keep making stuff up. You say that for anyone who says something negative about Sony or some of it’s crappy community fanbase. Do me a favor stop comment stalking me and prove it. Otherwise stop making stupid a#$ baseless stories.

          • Dennis Djoenz

            Crappy community fanbase -__- why don’t you just log off and stay offline…..

          • DLConspiracy//

            “SOME of it’s crappy community fanbase” You are taking it out of context.

          • Dennis Djoenz

            Oh my bad you are right. I overreacted a bit.
            You know I spent most of my PS3 days on a Final Fantasy Forum site and most people there were Sony lovers. We always associated Final Fantasy with playstation for obvious reasons. Lovely people/fans. I skipped the whole PS3/Xbox360 fanwar. PS4xXboxOne debacle is just wow lol. I haven’t been long on the internet tbh. Maybe 7 years???

            I suggest to keep posting lightly and don’t get in discussions too often. Waste of energy. Unless you can monetize the shit out of it somehow. ;)

          • DLConspiracy//

            Yeah it’s hard sometimes. Apparently I am an idiot for liking Xbox One too. That’s probably what gets under my skin. I wasn’t a part of the 360/ps3 wars online either. I think that’s why I am particularly upset by some of the comments I see. It’s new to me to be online and I feel like a lot of these comments should just be deleted.

            I DO NOT hate PS4 or it’s community, but some of the heavy nose rubbing really gets under my skin. Even when it’s about something I could give two sh%^s about. I never go into an article to rub peoples faces in something about sales, games or anything. I may point out it’s not cut and dry but never rub peoples noses in stuff. Or call anyone stupid for liking a plastic box. Anyways, I need to spend less time online. It’s taking away from my enjoyment of gaming.

          • Sucka Free

            And yet you can’t see how your own people are just as bad? I don’t care if you like MS better or defend them, That’s your business, but don’t play the victim here and don’t try to say that its all the fault of Sony fans. Half of the fault belongs to your side. Don’t kid yourself

          • DLConspiracy//

            Sorry I just have not experienced it as much then. It’s not about choosing a side dude. There are more PS4 owners then Xbox One owners are there not? Why wouldn’t there be more PS4 crappy fanboys then? Pure numbers. It’s not like Xbox People are a certain race that carry some sort of physical personality trait. Or Sony PS fans have a certain personality trait they inherited. NO. It’s the same people only PS4 has more of them.

          • Dennis Djoenz

            I have said this before and will say it again. In no way is the amount of Sony player base on the internet any indication of the total community overall.

            BS argument. Might be vocal yes, but do you even play online much on ps3 or ps4? I have met many awesome people.

            FORUMS are were the most dedicated cool people are though when it comes to the internet. Sites are pretty much ruined I’ll give you that.

            It seems you have some agenda. That is what I am picking up and many others.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Of course I have met awesome people in game and in the online forums/comments. I am not blanketing everyone. I am just voicing my opinion to people who seem to exacerbate or being completely closed minded with their comments.

          • Sucka Free

            I don’t consider the trolls and fanboys in any way represent the fanbase of either console. In fact, just the opposite. I don’t think they really care about gaming at all, otherwise they wouldn’t be here complaining about it all the time

          • DLConspiracy//

            I am just voicing my opinion about those. That’s it.

          • GotNews4Ya

            You haven’t experienced it much, because YOU WERE ON THEIR SIDE!! Do you honestly think Sony fans just started randomly bashing the Xbox fans this generation, and there was no past hostility? You completely think that everyone who claims to have been belittled and berated for picking a console other than the 360 last generation?

            I mean it only takes half a second for you to go to a Playstation Article, and check out the comments, see how many of them talk smack about How crappy Sony is.. how we are blind, and stupid.. calling us all kinds of random weird names, that aren’t even insulting, and frankly make very little sense to me. That’s how extreme it has gotten.. People have been doing this so long.. they have their own little inside joke insults, i.e. Sony Paupers (Mix the letters up with Alts and Money Signs..), Pony’s (Should be Ponies..), and the list goes on and on..

            I know Sony fans bring the heat right back, but before this generation, Sony fans were behind, and while the technology was better, it was harder to figure out, and harder to develop for.. not to mention the 360 had a year advantage and started out strong. The Lower price point also helped secure a strong lead throughout all of Last Gen.

            I have never been the type of guy to go out and troll people. I would rather discuss games, than a console. I have my opinion on which console is better for the experience (They all vary), but there is no question that the hardware specs are in favor of Sony this generation.

            I want Microsoft to get back into the mix, because Competition between the two Big Console Makers, is good for the consumer. I don’t have stock in either company.. Wish I bought some in 85. I’d be a rich man. LOL Until I somehow get a time machine and go back in time and invest.. I will keep being excited for the new releases, because that’s really all that matters to me.

            And for anyone who asked me about what gaming system to get, I just lay it out there for them, by asking a series of questions on what they “want” out of their system, and where their friends are going.. That is how you should choose your system.. Not because it might run slightly faster, or perform slightly better. People don’t understand that anymore these days.. The fun of the games is not directly related to the system you are playing it on.. and if you don’t have all the systems.. you won’t even notice a difference in visuals.. so it really don’t matter.

          • Sucka Free

            Yeah, I’m sure there are many that will decide to sell their XB1.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Maybe, I come online in the hopes to just be excited about either. Then am welcomed to incessant memes and jabs. Maybe I shouldn’t voice my opinion but some people are just pointless.

          • GotNews4Ya

            Add me on PSN / Xbox Live and we can play together, and you can find out that even some of the biggest douche’s on a forum or comments.. can be fun to play with and nice guys when just gaming.. but when you start talking about gaming consoles.. and which is better.. it just opens a whole new world of problems.. LOL.

            Oh well. PSN – LoVe4DaGaMe / Xbox Gamertag – 4SaK3N1

            I need more people to play with, and I welcome everyone.

    • Gamez Rule

      Bam! There it is☺

    Nice job Sony!! lets keep this streak going, it’s an amazing time to be apart of PlayStation Nation, feels like the old PS2 days I’m so excited for this gen

  • MTM2

    Anybody really surprised? Except from the PS3 Playstation has always been dominating the home console scene.

  • jacksjus

    Can MS reach 8M sold by Jan. 2015? That’s what I want to know.

    VGC Hardware states that:
    PS4: 198000
    XBO:183000
    WiiU: 135517

    There was a good boost for the Xbox one but it couldnt match up, i wonder what microsoft would do next. WiiU did get a great boost too, thanks to Mario Kart. Overall good numbers for the month of june

    • Not_true

      VGC is usually wrong on NPDs.

    • ilovegoogleglass

      Not bad for XBO and PS4

      The only way xBoxOne can win me over is if they actively pursue Japanese games to be translated for the western market on the xBox One. I’m a big Japanese RPG gamer ):

  • TallSilhouette

    I’m honestly surprised at just how resilient PS4 sales have been. Not Titanfall, Mario Kart 8, or even dropping Kinect have toppled the PS4′s monthly worldwide sales. Makes you wonder what can.

    • HawaiianDread

      I might get down voted for this but I think Halo can halt the sells for a month probably 2 but then at the beginning of next year Sony probably going to take it back with Bloodborne and The Order coming out.

      • superkarma

        You talking about the Master Chief collection? No way is that going to stop the PS4 sales train. The MCC is currently sitting at #73 on Amazon’s charts and that has been about the norm for quite awhile now. I’m guessing we’ll see even less of a sales spike than we did for the Kinect-less SKU.

        Halo 5, on the other hand, who knows what that’ll do. That’s still over a year away, so it’s anyones guess. But yeah…MCC is barely going to spike sales. It’s not as popular as most the fanboys want to make it seem.

        • aintwhatitlookslike

          Imagine halo 5 and uncharted 4 come out the same day ! That would be a epic sales battle!! Lol

        • Bliss Seeker

          I read somewhere that around 80-90% of the pre-orders for the MCC were coming from owners of the XB1 since launch.

      • TallSilhouette

        Halo, Zelda, and possibly Smash stand a chance, but will also likely be going head to head with competing titles like Uncharted 4. We’ll see.

        • aintwhatitlookslike

          Ive got a ps4 but i will be buying a wii u the moment that new Zelda is available:D

      • aintwhatitlookslike

        Don’t forget uncharted 4 too

        • HawaiianDread

          Did we get a date or estimate when that’s coming out?

          • Kingdom17

            Late 2015?

          • aintwhatitlookslike

            2015

          • HawaiianDread

            Yea I figure next year but is it like beginning, mid, or late part of 2015?

            Edit: In my opinion they should release it during the summer dought and rake in the maximum profit.

          • aintwhatitlookslike

            Late probably around November, i think it will go head to head with halo 5 :D

      • Kingdom17

        I’m not sure MS will win with that, buy I’m sure that’s going to make a large dent in Sony’s hardware sales for a while.

      • FoRSaKeN 1

        a remastered version of the second halo, coupled with the old versions from the 360.. placed on a disc, with only 6 updated multiplayer maps.. that are updated in today’s graphics? Nah.. I don’t think that will do anything but enrage fans with how misleading they have been with the real truth about the Master Chief Collection. I was going to buy it.. until I rewatched the E3 event and learned that they were being really sneaky on the down low.. How long do you think 6 remastered multiplayer maps will keep you interested in the game? Here’s a hint.. titanfall had 12 at launch.. and it was a completely new game.. and it started off really fun..

  • Porcu Peth

    yeahhh baby

    PS4 + Wii U + PC 4 life
    Kick that xbox ass.

    • Black Heaven

      Hurrah, someone with a similar combination. :D

      I don’t have a PS4 yet, but I am planning it before Christmas, and my life would be complete. T_T
      For me, I add PS3 and 3DS to the list.

      Careful you my be out bested by someone with PS4 + Wii U + PC + Xbox One 4 Life!

      Kick that fanboys A$$

      • Jecht_Sin

        You forgot the 3DS and PS Vita. Oh, add the Ouya as well since we’re here. :p

        • HawaiianDread

          Lol 3DS is in a league of it’s own atm, the vita is beginning to do better but I think if Sony lower those memory cards the Vita will sell much better

          Edit: Ouya still exists?

        • DLConspiracy//

          Just one more system tops his combo. haha.

    • Bryan

      PS4, PS3, 3DS, WiiU, PsVita, PC here! :D
      xBone One only if they come out with an RPG I must have. Otherwise I don’t even have space for my ps3 right now under my TV ):

  • LowKeye

    B..b..but xone is $400 and ps4 has no games.

    Oh that gotta hurt Microsoft. 1st giving away titan fall for free failed then dropping kinect to lower the price and still,they can’t outsell ps4 on their home turf, Microsoft are running out of options fast and it seems no matter what they do the general consumer prefer the ps4.

    and that’s just what they deserve after the bs they tired to pull at e3 2013
    people don’t forget and i think Microsoft damaged there reputation a lot more than they letting on.
    Microsoft with the xbone should finish in 3rd place this gen and its just what they deserve people have finally woken up to there bs
    Congratulations’ Sony PS4 FTW!!
    PS4 >>WIIU>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>XBONE ;)

  • aintwhatitlookslike

    Just to think Microsoft have got to contend with the last of us bundle next month. They are gonna get there arse kicked

  • Mikail
  • Cameron Standring

    Wouldn’t call it a strong month – remember, America is the Xbox gone country where the 360 always did best various European countries prefer the PS4 at ratios of more like 5:1. The fact that being beaten for the sixth month in a row in its home country is actually considered a ‘strong month’ for the Xbone simply reinforces just how badly it’s doing.

    Great Job Sony. i notice all the Xbox Fanboys were cheering when they heard Microsoft double their sales and then Sony came out and shut them up basically. Sony Always Wins Baby. you can’t be Sony. PSOne, PSDouble, PSTriple, PSQuadruple

    Some people believe the VGChartz figures, well look what I noticed from May – July on 3DS hardware totals?…… LMAO!

    Am i missing something or has the totals fallen?

    • Not_true

      VGC is a joke.

      • Gamez Rule

        Proven from their very own G-Hardware Totals☺

    • Jecht_Sin

      They adjust the numbers when they get the real data. Even if the error margin was 5% (more than 2 million 3DS. It is lower than that, I’d say 2%, 3% the most) it would still be better than guessing..

      • Gamez Rule

        I don’t believe they adjust when official figures are given. I’ve seen official figures from Sony may times but when looking at VGChartz and they still showed lower figures☺

        • Jecht_Sin

          Still the error margin on total HW sales is low. Personally I have seen vgchartz updating the data after some official announcements about the sales have been made. What might not be very reliable are the weekly sales, while the SW sales are just useless.

  • Manoj Varughese

    Let’s get to the chalk board again. The striking down continues.

  • Asif Bashir

    I have no idea what Microsoft’s plans are with the Xbox One of late and even though I switched to the PS4 this gen after over 10yrs of Xbox gaming It’s got me worried. I plan on purchasing an Xbox One for a few exclusives that I want such as MCC, Fable, Forza Horizon etc however axing all those jobs, all those 180′s, back and fourth talks, new CEO sounding rather unbalanced about Xbox I really hope Microsoft doesn’t just decide to drop the brand!
