February's gonna hurt

NobleTeam360 (on 18 February 2014)

That PS4 domination.

loy310 (on 18 February 2014)

At Least now we know that a head to head launch is no good for MS. They need to launch ahead of PS or come in significantly more affordable. Dont know how they are going o turn this around.

A Good IP can make the difference. I bought my 360 over a PS3 because of how awesome Gears of War was (and the then exclusive Lost Planet).

I think lost planet 1 is still exclusive to the Xbox360? only the second one came out on the PS3 I think.... or... maybe there was a special ed of the first which came out way later?

Titanfall of course, it's Xb one exclusive don't you know? 360 and PC versions are a myth.
@Michael-5 good IP can only make a difference if PS4 has no good IP. I think PS4 will be able to match Xb one for good IP.

This just tells me that PS is cannibalizing xbox.

HylianSwordsman (on 18 February 2014)

Cannibalizing would imply that xbox was the same as playstation. PS4 is cannibalizing PS3, though not much. The term you're searching for is predation. PS4 is preying upon Xbox like a hawk upon a scared little fieldmouse.

Yeah, it'll be a 2 million lead after February, thanks to Japan. Maybe 2.25 mil or even more once you add all regions.

Feb should increase significantly.. only a few days until launch.. going to be interesting to see the photo's and see if there are any queues. In Japan they seem to have gone off the boil in terms of queuing for consoles..

cody6695 (on 20 February 2014)
