    XB1: Sold 4.8 million (retail games) vs PS4's 4.2 million

    Come on!
    Its not like the dam console cost you an arm and a leg this time!

    According to Aaron Greenberg, Xbox One retail software sold approximately 4.8 million units compared to 4.2 million for PlayStation 4. While he doesn’t give the exact figure, he does comment on how Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 sold better on Xbox One.

    Some good #NPD SW facts: #XboxOne YTD 2013: 4.8M retail games vs. 4.2M for PS4. COD & BF4 both sold better on #XboxOne.
    Last #NPD fact: 1st/2nd party (exclusives) SW sales for #XboxOne 1.5M units vs. 599K for PS4. Led by Dead Rising, Forza 5 and Ryse.

    lol What are you talking about mate? there were around 9.7 million PS4 games sold - that's around 2.3 games per person (or per console if you divide 9.7 mil to 4.2 PS4s). There's nothing wrong with that.

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/01/...es-sold-so-far

    Sold more on First party? Sure. But I'd put that to the amount of "first party" (or more accurately, exclusives) XB1 games.

    I'd say barring anyone's expectations, the thread title needs an edit - that being inaccurate or wrong on any account.

    Skewed at best.

    No offence of course.

    Meh, "XBO yank owners buy more games?" Take your pick., whichever, the yanks are tighter than the Scots, they have more consoles sold in USA, with less games sold.

    Clearly they buy more outside of the USA. If the XBO has a tie in of 2.66 in America, the PS4 must be well under that ( Its about 2 at a guesstimate)

    Look the Xb1 could've well sold as much opr more than the PS4's 9.7mill software - but that doesn't mean the margin is significant even if it did (which I'm not sure what the WW numbers are). But even the yank numbers up there, the difference is only 600k.

    Either way, the FM5 and Dr3 (which I'm surprised sold more than FM5 tbh) would be the killers for XB1.

    On the other hand, kinda surprised but also at the same time, not surprised at Ryse's healthy showing.

    I doubt MS has outsold them WW, there strength is in the US.

    This is NPD, America only. But it is a happy coincidence those numbers are the same.

    2+2 = 4.2?

    PS4 has little to no competition.

    NPD doesn't account for digital sales and there have been a lot with the indie titles.

    I acknowledge the level of technical knowledge you have any enjoy reading some of the spec comparison debates that you get involved in, but comments like this make me wonder what your motive really is. This makes you look like a fanboy and troll.

    I'm impressed with the MS numbers and to be honest, I'm very happy to see that neither next-gen console is running away with this gen at launch. People do realize that success of MS and Sony are good for us gamers, right?

    /rant

    I'm only going with one next-gen console and I honestly have not decided if it will be XB1 or PS4. My launch PS3 is still going strong and I haven't even played TLoU yet. I still have some time to decide and in the meantime, will be paying attention to all things XB1 and PS4.

    If the rest of the world can find around 3 titles to own, I'm not sure why Americans can't.

    Hell even off the top of my head, KZ:SF, AC4 and BF4 make good companions off the bat.

    Of course my tongue was firmly in my cheek when I said this, if I really wanted to troll Americans, there are much easier targets to hit than this.

    Whichever way you rattle this, I dont think the XBO numbers are actually impressive, if you looked at rough PS4 numbers outside of America (that's about 4.5 million units on roughly slightly less consoles than are America), then it's about the same tie in as MS is getting.
    This is assuming that there is about 2.2-2.4 million PS4's in the USA.

    Perhaps as Lef suggests America is a more digitally online focused place than the rest of the world?

    Trust me. I love Forza 5. It's a great game. It just could have been so much more. So, I'm the same with Drive Club. I wanted to try it out, but also want a game done. Getting forza out when they did is part of why they have a lot of software sold.

    Either way the guys at the front are Eu Ps4 owners, and the guys on the back are USA PS4 owners.

    I wonder, maybe FIFA drives an extra title in the EU.

    I'm pretty sure NA is ahead in digital delivery and probably one of the main reasons why PS Now is launching in NA so much sooner than in other territories. I would like to see numbers on this but I guess we would have to trust Sony and MS with whatever they are. The NPD numbers are impressive regardless.
