15 Ways to Enhance Your Experience on PS4 and Xbox One

It looks like in spite of Microsoft’x Xbox One S gambit, and a lineup that consists of Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4, Sony are going to finish ahead of them this year during the Holidays. According to analysts at DFC Intelligence (via GamesIndustry.biz), total PlayStation 4 sales are expected to cross 50 million over the Holidays, while total Xbox One sales will probably fail to reach their original 30 million target and the results will remain flat year-over-year.

It is important to note that the report was made before Sony announced their 50 million total yesterday- so the analysis holds merit, and seems to be on point so far. If the analysis holds water, and Microsoft fail to hit 30 million, then PS4 will have widened their lead over Xbox One to over 20 million units- and this is before the loaded lineup of PS4 games next year starts hitting.

Microsoft don’t report sales numbers, so it will be hard to tell what their exact totals are- but early indictions seem to be that Sony are indeed doing better than they are at the moment.

    That was expected.
    One’s a game system, build “for the gamers”
    The other’s a media TV box with budget 720p gpu build “for the watchers”

      You do know that PS4’s massive win this generation is not because of the PS4 being built for gamers but more like Microsoft shooting themselves on their feet? Sony initially wanted to bundle PS camera with PS4 and sell it for 499$ but immediately after Microsoft’s ultimate failed media centered Xbox One reveal, Sony completely changed their strategy. That worked out PERFECTLY for Sony since they didn’t have much entertainment features beyond gaming, and by having the more powerful console, EVERYTHING was aligned for Sony to win this generation. As a smart person, I don’t buy the “built for gamers” Sony bullshit, I only care about games and I didn’t get a PS4 until 2016 when Sony’s first AAA non-remastered-and-brand-new exclusive Uncharted 4 released.

      yes, that’s true,
      I supported and owned the xbox 360.
      But Jumped ship like most after the biggest reveal f’up in history.
      First time ever a console was about TV instead of gaming.

  • Mr Xrat

    I’m gonna say 25 million. No one cares about the media box.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      true

    “Microsoft don’t report sales numbers, so it will be hard to tell what their exact totals are-”

    Oh, they would just say something stupidly lame like “Over 200 bullets fired in Quantum Break. Over 300 hrs wasted dungeon crawling in Recore. Over 400 zombies slayed in Dead Rising 4.”

    The Xbox One is just so freaking lame. What an absolute disaster it is. Sony has no competition this gen. Its no wonder these fools can’t wait for Scorpio. They’ve been getting bent over and shafted by M$ for years now, and they still can’t wait to marry their rapist.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      they do that ,
      haha, that Quantum “720p of burliness” & Break the GPU sub 30fps

    • Tomaterrrx

      If you’re gonna troll at least spell ‘blurriness’ correct.
