Here is my comparative analysis... This is a comparative analysis from the Data I gathered from this site. The numbers below are entirely in line with my original projections about the US market share, posted here: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=172405 Basically, I am estimating the North American market share between PS4 and XB1 to be... XB1 : Around 35-45% PS4 : Around 55-65% Currently the preorders market share for XB1 is 42.4% overall, and 39.4% for third parties, which is more representative in the long run. Those numbers will more likely improve in favor of PS4 in the upcoming months / years due to the network & catapult effects from the rest of the world, in addition to the more price sensitive casual crowd, who will favor PS4.

Wow the console exclusives are really loosing out to the big names like Battlefield, Call of Duty and Assassins Creed. Surprised Dead Rising 3 is not doing better than it is.

you guys forgot the fact that need for speed is already released for the ps4 as well. It's release date is Nov. 15.
