PS4 Outselling Xbox One By 4:1 In Germany

Even the Wii U has higher lifetime sales in the country.

15 Ways to Enhance Your Experience on PS4 and Xbox One

With this week having been Gamescom week – which is Europe’s largest games convention, and which takes place in Germany – this news (via NeoGAF) is perhaps exceedingly pertinent. You see, it seems like, in spite of Microsoft’s best efforts to appeal to continental Europe with the Xbox One, they have been unable to break into the market.

According to this report, lifetime sales of the Xbox One in Germany stand at only 710,000 units- this is far less than the PlayStation 4’s staggering 3 million units sold there, but also less than Nintendo’s Wii U, which has managed to sell a neat 750,000 units there.

The performance of the Xbox One isn’t getting any better there, either- this year, for instance, the Xbox One has managed to sell only 105,000 units so far, while the PlayStation 4 has sold 460,000 units- meaning the PS4 is outselling the Xbox One by a ratio of over 4:1. At least the Xbox One managed to eke out a win over the Wii U this year- that console is estimated to have sold 60,000 units in Germany this year. The Wii U slowdown, however, makes sense- what with the NX launching next year.

For now, Microsoft will no doubt be hoping that the Xbox One S and Scorpio help reverse their flagging fortunes in Europe a bit.

      On the contrary there, my little pony. I actually was expecting it from this journalist because he does it all the time. Once xb1 beat the the pony kings in the US I knew it wouldn’t be long before this came. Now that sony latest exclusive bombed in reviews the downplaying of xbox one will continue….lol

    • One The One

      “Journalist”, really?

    • Mr Xrat

      That 10,000 margin of a win in one month in the US is wiped out in just one week in Japan lol. The Xbone is a flop. 🙂

    • Reaper

      A flop? You do realise its sold 20m consoles? Admittedly that less than half of what the PS4 has sold, but it’s still better than the 360 at this stage. Its nowhere near being a flop.

  • Nintengods

    Getting destroyed by PC.

    $ony $hills annihilated. Soon begging for Nintendo games again. Sad!

  • StarkyLuv

    Linking to NeoGAF to post a NeoGAF-like “article” complete with fanboy editorializing. Even using Gamesom as a justification. Also, Germany = Europe! Didn’t know that!

    It’s just…sad.

    • Mr Xrat

      Crawl back to your Twitter safe space so you can cry about the Xbone’s failure there, StarkyMong.

    • Michael

      What’s the matter, Pony? You didn’t get your oats and honey today?….lol

    • Jose Francisco Arroyo-Velez

      You always seem to have a hard time arguing facts, Mr Xrat.

    • Mr Xrat

      If only I had a fact to argue against. As it is, I have only Xgimp delusion.

    • Mr Xrat

      More delicious desperation. Shitpio’s gonna be $799 and your tears will be delicious when it still underperforms. Keep hoping, StarkyTwat.

    • Mr Xrat

      Hey StarkyTwat: it’s because Gears of War 4 doesn’t look very good. Sorry if that upsets your fanboy sensitivities.

    • Mr Xrat

      LOL Should have figured you’d be another salty Sega fanboy, StarkyTw@t. Oh yeah, Titanfall is still a bag of s**t but at least they gave it an SP campaign this time.

    • Mr Xrat

      StarkyTwat in utter delusion. The only reason the Shitpio is doing less weaker than usual is because of the half-@ssed movie player. Your gimmicks won’t have any legs and you’ll be back to eating s**t as usual.

    • Mr Xrat

      StarkyTwat back to his “Bu bu but you have to have the difference pointed out!!!!” damage control like he has been for the last three years.

      Keep crying about the Pro, you little b***h. It just makes you look more ridiculous. At least it’ll make your tears sweeter when the Shitpio flops!

    • StarkyLuv

      So, you’re okay with being a virgin? Awesome!

    • Mr Xrat

      Awww, little StarkyTwat’s nervous the Pro’s going to make those NPD
      “wins” for the convection heater/movie player look pathetic. It’s OK, your fake bravado to mask your terror is always amusing, you middle-aged b***h. 🙂

    • Mr Xrat

      Poor little StarkyTwat, that p1ssy bit of the market the Xbone clawed back over two months in the UK got destroyed and more in one weekend. Sure hope you’ve got your excuses locked up, you middle aged pr1ck!

    • Mr Xrat

      Poor StarkyTwat, something that’ll get patched like Bloodborne versus the Turdbox’s permanent garbage. I’d feel sorry for you if I didn’t relish in your agony.

    • Mr Xrat

      LOL StarkyTwat! Xbone does well on eBay, “Awesome! What a comeback! Xbox won!” PS4 is reported to do better the next day, “S-so what! It doesn’t matter!!!”

      This is why everyone hates you.

    • Mr Xrat

      LMAOOOOOOOOOO poor little StarkyTwat has to try and justify that pathetic emulation. Sad point about the Xbone’s appalling library, isn’t it?

      Sunset Overdrive was utter mediocrity, by the way. It’s been two years. Stop crying about it. No one cares.

    • Mr Xrat

      Hey StarkyTwat, keep up. Pro already plays every other PS4 game. Wow, you are dense. No exclusives and a year late too. I’d feel bad for you if three years of tw@ttery meant you deserved your failure.

      Kiss Phil Spencer’s @ss some more, loser.

    • Nintengods

      18 days till P$4 is dead, loser :^)

      No wonder you closed off your trophy page. Shows all the games you haven’t been playing.

    • Mr Xrat

      “I-I love that they delayed it!!!”

      Along with the rest of your s**t games, StarkyTwat. It’s OK when S**ttersoft does it. 🙂

    • Mr Xrat

      StarkyTwat in denial again. Scalebound got plenty of media attention over the last three years. I get you need a strawman so you can protect yourself from yet another Microsoft failure.

    • Mr Xrat

      No one’s getting RE7 on the Shitbox Done, StarkyTwat. All your games flop, not surprising considering you f00kers don’t play them.

    • Mr Xrat

      Hey StarkyTwat! How’s the wait for Crackdown 3 going? Three years and counting, right? How about Fable Legends and Scalebound?

    • Mr Xrat

      Did you even read that dogshit article, StarkyTwat? “No evidence.” Hillshills are nearly as utterly moronic as Xgimps. Nearly.

    • Mr Xrat

      Hi StarkyTw@t! How does moving to Sunday give the Sh1tpio more exposure? Sund@y is a day the m3dia don’t give a s//t about, but hey, it’s 24 more hours for me to mock you s//mbags before the proper conferences start.

    • Mr Xrat

      Poor little StarkyTwat with his victim complex. Meanwhile in reality, Forbes is talking up that pathetic EA Abscess clone.

      “Megaton,” a sad little subscription service because you have nothing else. Then a lazy port of an Xbox game that took three years. “Megaton.” About time you looked up the meaning of that word, StarkyTwat.

    • Mr Xrat

      Ahahahahahaha StarkyTwat falling for a company man trying to shill his sad little upgrade. All that backtracking and non-answers for you losers!

    • Mr Xrat

      StarkyTwat the middle-aged dipsh1t thinks Shitpio is anything other than a joke. Power stopped being a problem when the price fixed itself years ago, you’d have noticed this if you weren’t deluded. 🙂

    • Mr Xrat

      Everyone’s laughing at the Shitpio, StarkyTwat. Gonna be funny as all h3ll when reality sets in for you losers. It’ll be another two years of crying from you.

    • Tomaterrrx

      You must be really lonely if you continue talking to a person who hasn’t replied to you in 3 months LMFAO

    • Mr Xrat

      StarkyTwat with his victim complex again. The industry thinks the Xbone sucks, loser. Get over it.

    • Mr Xrat

      I love how you Xtwat morons never got why the Xbone is such a laughing stock, StarkyTwat.

    • Mr Xrat

      Poor StarkyTwat, you never did understand why the Xbone is such a joke did you? Spoiler alert: it wasn’t just “power,” but keep learning the wrong lessons, it’lll keep Xbone in third place for ever.

    • Mr Xrat

      Try observing and not making stuff up to support your victim complex and flailing belief system, StarkyTwat. Power being a non-issue when the prices re-aligned. The Xbone was a joke for multiple reasons. Stay in denial about it, though.

    • Mr Xrat

      StarkyTwat projecting after spending three years justifying having no exclusives! Now is nothing compared to all your new exclusives on PC because you don’t buy them, but that’s something else for you to spin.

    • Mr Xrat

      Hi StarkyTwat! Cool to see people are clever enough to call out Shitbox shill operation Shitdows Central’s attempts to distract from the Phantom Dust port looking awful and still being 30fps. So this is the power of DX12! Remember that, StarkyTwat? I remember.

    • Mr Xrat

      Nah, StarkyTwat, Gaf’s always been infested with Sh1ttersoft apologists, drones and morons. It’s part of the reason why I don’t browse there as often. A shame the purge wasn’t maintained.

    • Mr Xrat

      “Positive Sh*tpio energy.” That’s what you call J*zz Corden hyping up
      crumbs to keep a cancerous fanbase off the ledge, StarkyTwat?

    • Mr Xrat

      “Word is,” StarkyTwat. Yeah, I’ve heard that damage control from the same liars who said DX12 would make the Sh*tbox Done magically 30% faster. Remember that, StarkyTwat? I remember.

    • Mr Xrat

      S**ttersoft had to move their worthless little E3 begging session so we can laugh them for 24 hours instead of 8 before they get forgotten. Yum! Sunday? No one pays attention on Sunday, StarkyTwat.

    • Mr Xrat

      No, StarkyTwat, your cr*p exclusives flop and so do multiplats. That’s why you beg for CrossPlay, so Plus subscribers can prop you up. Last month in NPD, after you spent years crying that including digital sales would make the difference, there were NO Sh*tbox games in the top ten. Time to face reality.

    • Mr Xrat

      You’re such a re**rd, StarkyTwat! Jumeira is a dyed in the wool Xtw*t like you. Then again I’m not surprised Xtw*ts are too fu**king dumb to be able to spot blatant sarcasm.

      Yeah right, StarkyTwat. The Shitpio inexplicably uses an extra gig of RAM for no reason? They lied to you to make you feel good, and just like the “unlocking” they had with the original Shitbox Done, it made no difference. Keep being a loser.

      Have fun with those rehashes, StarkyTwat. LMAO!

    • Mr Xrat

      LOL StarkyTwat you got so upset about the Xbollox being $499 then changed your tune when it was official. By the way: your sad little Xbollox is a half-step. All those indie games and awful-looking exclusives in 4K! You get fed timed exclusive indie games and broken early access and you act like it’s clotted cream. Dips**t Xtw*t c**ksucker.

    • Mr Xrat

      Hahahahhaha StarkyTwat! The Sh*tbox Done Ecks is going to be a massive failure. Deal with it.

    • Mr Xrat

      StarkyTwat with his permanent victim complex. Always pathetic.

      The Xbonx will do the same as the convection heater did: sell well over the holidays and shrivel up in the new year. What a shame!

    • Mr Xrat

      Checkerboard 4K 30fps, StarkyTwat. Never, ever forget that after a year of baseless hype, you sad little parasite.

    • Mr Xrat

      StarkyTwat still crying like the middle-aged loser he is. Keep at it, it reminds everyone why they hate you!

  • Mr Xrat

    Xgimps sure are quiet.

    • ATARI

      PS4 outselling XB1 4 to 1 in Germany isn’t such a big deal. See Germany is PC land where the biggest platform by far is PC and seeing as every single Microsoft exclusive looks/plays better on PC and PS4 is really cheap those German gamers are just buying them for a handful of exclusives they want to play. Sony aren’t going to benefit from that as PS4 is sold at a small loss and the only reason why the spend money funding “exclusives” is to try and lock gamers into buying all their multiplatform games on PS4 as Sony takes a big cut from all third party multiplatform games sold on their console as does other console manufactures however the Germans will be buying these multiplatform games on PC as they look/play better there just like the Microsoft exclusives. So it’s not like PS4 outselling XB1 i Japan where there’s no other relevant platforms

    • Nintengods

      $onygimps clinging onto sales in an area where PC gaming is winning because they have no games like the xboner and the NX is about to annihilate them

      And now both Kingdom Hearts 3 and Dragon Quest XI are coming to NX so Japan has no reason to ever buy a P$4 either.

      Sad! No one will miss cancerous $onygimps or Xgimps, Paul 🙂

  • Jose Francisco Arroyo-Velez

    Germany isn’t all of Europe, what does sales in Germany have to do with the entire European Union? Where’s Holland’s numbers, where’s Italy’s numbers, where’s Spain and Portugal’s numbers? UK used to be part of EU and the Xbox One S sold out there. This article is poorly written and is assuming too much off just one country in a union of dozens of countries.

    • BassieB

      Microsoft did horrible over here in the Netherlands. Postponing the xbox for localization, and than releasing it a year later WITHOUT the localization -.-

      So yea PS4 was easier to get here, so most got the ps4. Horrible mistake by MS. (same goes for belgium btw)
      Just like MS made that kinect bundle mistake at launch, also cost them a lot of sales.

      In Spain the ps4 was selling the xbox at 7 to 1 at one point, doubt those amounts have caught up.
      Portugal basically works the same as Spain when you look at the demography.
      So guessing thats not an xbox country either.

      In the UK the ps4 outsold the xbox one for a long long long time, doubt those figures caught up just cause they brought out the slim…..

      Anyways yea article was more correct than your mediocre reply.

      Oh and isn’t Germany like the biggest economy in the EU or something, making them like a guideline or something i dunno…..

      http://n4g.com/news/1902537/ps4-vs-xbox-one-vs-wii-u-europe-lifetime-sales-march-2016-update

      This was just in March, the score was 2.9-1 in all of Europe, considering the strong sales Sony and Microsoft have both had, this hasn’t changed much. So yes, this article is completely wrong and proves Germany isn’t representative of all of Europe. All your outdated facts make your response mediocre.

    • Reaper

      The UK buys more consoles than Germany, we bought 5.5m PS4s and 2.5m xbox ones as of February this year. both good sales figures, wish people would stop thinking xbox has done bad, just because PS4 has done exceptionally good. PS4 has still sold half as many as PS3 has at present and considering they’re releasing the Neo, I very much doubt the PS4 will outsell the PS3 ever.

    • Mr Xrat

      The Xbone is getting demolised Europe-wide. Deal with it.

    • Jose Francisco Arroyo-Velez

      Your life is being consumed by console wars. XD you’re bellow crapgamer levels of pathetic. I bet you cringe whenever you hear about project Scorpio.
