    Dixons predicts Xbox One over PS4 to take Christmas No. 1

    High Street retail group Dixons has today published its Christmas best-sellers list and predicts the Xbox One to top the PlayStation 4. The list reveals which console the retailer expects consumers to opt for as the next-gen battle heats up this Christmas. Both consoles take poll position in the Top Ten Tech Gifts chart, but it’s the Xbox One that PC World and Currys expect to be this Christmas’ best selling device.


    “On the one hand you have Xbox One entering the ‘all-in-one battle’ and then you have PlayStation focusing more than ever before on social gameplay,” said Charlie Stringer, category manager for gaming consoles at Currys and PC World.


    “The gloves are off and it’ll be interesting to see who wins come Christmas Day.”
    Despite predicting Microsoft’s success in the next-gen console war, Dixons has celebrated the battle between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as one that will provide a much-needed boost for High Street retail.
    The retailer also expects the next-gen console war to dominate technology sales this Christmas. With the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 taking the chart’s top spots, popular tech products such as the iPad and other tablets are relegated to fighting for third place.
    “We’re excited to see Xbox and PlayStation finally launching big new platforms. Both consoles are extremely powerful and offer customers a great entertainment solution,” continued Stringer.


    Currys and PC World’s Christmas 2013 Top Ten Tech Gifts
    1. Xbox One
    2. PS4
    3. Apple iPad
    4. Nexus 7
    5. Samsung Galaxy Tab 3
    6. Monster DNA On-Ear White Tuxedo Headphones
    7. KitchenAid Kitchen Machine (red)
    8. De’Longhi EC310B Coffee Machine
    9. Nikon D3200 Twin Kit with 18-55mm lens
    10. Bose Soundlink Mini

    The PS4 has been designed for social gameplay? Seriously? It was designed with the hardcore gamer in mind, it's all about the games. Share button is just a funky addon that the majority of people won't use after the first 3 weeks.

    Because parents will be so willing to fork out the extra 100 for the X1 at Xmas time.

    You're kidding, right?
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.”

    Oh ok I see what ur saying I agree with you. just because a share button was implemented doesnt make it a social console. it IS a hardcore gaming console that's the damn reason I got one preordered. ms and their fanboys can have the rest of the $#@!

    Wait, what? You don't get what I'm saying I don't think.

    The "gamer" who works for Dixons thinks the Xbone will sell more than the PS4. I'm sayin no it won't.

    Uh... what? The Xbox is the one that costs 100 dollars more, not the PS4. What are you even taking about? The PS4 has a share button on its controller. I think you're confusing the two consoles.

    And I said parents are less likely to fork out the extra 100 for XB1 at Xmas time.

    Maybe so mate but at the end of the day the share button is no more than an extra feature that wont make people want to purchase the console. We buy our PS4s to play games not spend time showing our Facebook "friends" how good we are at games.
