Xbox One Outsold PS4 In North America During E3 Week

So there’s that, I guess.

The NPD results came out yesterday, and as is increasingly becoming the norm by this point, the PS4 kicked ass, outselling all other hardware for the month of June in America; however, Microsoft was quick to point out that while that may, in fact, have been true, the Xbox One managed to outsell the PS4 during the week of E3Xbox One sales rose a healthy 79 percent compared to the week of E3 2014.

What exactly Microsoft is trying to prove with this, I don’t know- has it come to this, that we now cling to weekly variations for console sales to score victories? On the other hand, there is also the fact that this indicates that, relative to its base, Microsoft saw increased interest in its console thanks to its E3 conference, compared to Sony. That sounds good and all, before you remember that Sony has double the base that it is catering to to begin with, so, I don’t know where they were going with this, again.

That said, I do have to give props to Microsoft’s performance in other areas this last month- their E3 conference was great, and I really enjoy that they are listening to fans by adding features such as backwards compatibility. Hopefully, in the near future, they can keep up with the PS4’s sales performance for real.

    “What exactly Microsoft is trying to prove with this”
    No doubt they are just trying to save face, Sony has done it too, regadless is good news…

    This is me just guessing but what they are trying to point out is that people where happy, content and hyped with what they saw at Microsoft E3 and many when out and bought an Xbox One not only that but the closer the holidays get we may see another Microsoft wining NPD’s. Many are still waiting for other announcements like bundles, Gamescom and what not before they make a choice as well.

      Too bad that Aaron Greenburg’s pathetic damage control doesn’t prove that it was E3 that boosted Xbox One to outsell the PS4 the week of E3.

      Microsoft was running a promotion that week, where if you buy an Xbox One you would get Arkham Knight or a recent game of your choice for free and they still lost.

      Aaron Greenburg’s little pop shots are childish, missleading, and unprofessional. It hurts them, not helps them.

      I don’t understand why you’re damage controlling for them either. Microsoft deserves to be losing. Licking their boots doesn’t do any good for anyone.

      “Microsoft was running a promotion that week, where if you buy an Xbox One you would get Arkham Knight or a recent game of your choice for free and they still lost”

      Agreed.

      People just have to accept the ( FACT ) that PS4 is this gens lead console in not only hardware sales, but sortware sales too. ( Not including PC hence why I staed console )

    • *Also On PC

      Because if you included PC. It would be embarrassing just how much the POS4 is declining already :^)

    • Gamez Rule

      Well that all depends really..

      Example =Ubisoft ..

      For the full 2015 fiscal year (ended March 31, 2015) the results looked like this for a 12-month period:

      PlayStation 4 – 32 percent
      Xbox One – 20 percent
      Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 – Tied at 13 percent
      PC – 12 percent

      This showed that Consoles on a whole was in favour over PC via Ubisoft gaming sales data.

      Now we have the new data coming in…

      For the first quarter of the publisher’s fiscal year, its software rankings (combined retail and digital) by platform are as follows:

      PlayStation 4 – 27 percent
      PC – 23 percent
      Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 – Tied at 11 percent

      So yet again it shows that consoles are more favoured over PC gaming by Ubisoft. And that’s just one company/

      We all know that PC gaming is massive, and that PC hardware will always be ahead of consoles, but consoles make money for companies too ( and a lot of it ) so although there are many gaming PCs on the market not all of them are up to spec in playing new released titles or buy the games ( like shown above from Ubisoft ).

      How many millions are there able to play newly released titles? We know in consoles that there is approx- 200+ million?.. PC will have more IMO but what makes devs- more money from game sales.. Ask Ubisoft?

      More BS talk from XbotMK1…sorry I meant Kinect (lol)
      The only thing you understand is Sony’s d*ck up your a$$.

      “Too bad that Aaron Greenburg’s pathetic damage control doesn’t prove that it was E3 that boosted Xbox One the week of E3.”

      Do you work for them enough to make that assessment?

      “Aaron Greenburg’s little pop shots are childish, missleading, and unprofessional. It hurts them, not helps them.”

      Like if a random troll/fanboy like yourself would know anything. Funnily that same sentence describes you and many other trolls/fanboys out there.

      “I don’t understand why you’re damage controlling for them either. Microsoft deserves to be losing. Licking their boots doesn’t do any good for anyone.”
      Damage controlling for them? I thought I was making a guess to what the article was asking and guessing as well. What you should understand that is that you are a troll/fanboy and nothing you say has any weight whatsoever.

      But instead are just losing it. How can you respect this desperatism? Its pathetic. And just because they supposedly sold more during the week of E3 doesn’t mean that more people bought the PS4 over what they saw on E3, but they just didn’t all run out during that time. I mean they sold more throughout the month, meaning more people wanted it than the X1.

    • GamerJudge

      “How can you respect this desperatism?”
      Sorry but I’m not one to go around screaming desperation, evil, pathetic or whatever else you fanboys like to say just to fuel your childish console war, your ego and feel better about yourselves and your purchase.

    “A week”… but STILL losing ground to PS4 outselling all other hardware over that “month”

    Take a read of this… http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2015/07/17/7573314.aspx

    Sony winning the fight at retail with PS4, it’s as simple as that. Sony has had the topspot for both hardware and software in some months, which can be backed up by Ubisoft in their fiscal data ( last years data and first quarter of this years )

    • *Also On PC

      So PS4 is done and PC Gaming is going to win the generation. Thanks for the obvious :^)

    • Psionicinversion

      PC is the most dominant force this generation whereas xbox and playstation has its measely amount of exclusive nearly all multiplats are on pc. While consoles squabble between themselves, pc is the best

    • Gamez Rule

      And the point is..?

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah exactly thats the point… PC gets nearly EVERYTHING whilst a console is like taking your car out for a sunday spin, never needed any other time apart from taking a ride every now and again hahaha

    • Gamez Rule

      So the point is no matter how powerful or how popular PCs are they cannot play all games shown above, which falls back to ( needing a console to play console only exclusives )

      You make it out that consoles only have a few games, but in truth there are loads of games for consoles, so much so that 99% of gamers haven’t been able to play all games released on consoles☺.

    • Psionicinversion

      Hahaha what an idiot people havnt played all games because all games don’t interest all people

    • Gamez Rule

      Idiot?.. Even IF all games didn’t interest you 99% of people couldn’t play all the games they are interested in. There’s just too many games out on consoles, so don’t try to make it sound like, PC gets nearly EVERYTHING while consoles get nothing☺

      You make it sound like consoles themselves or console gamers are nothing but second class when compared to PC, which is just laughable.

      How many PSOnes sold ( and how many games? )
      How many PS2s sold ( and how many games? )
      How many PS3s sold ( and how many games? )
      How many PS4s sold ( and how many games? )

      How many XBOX sold ( and how many games? )
      How many 360s sold ( and how many games? )
      How many Xbones sold ( and how many games? )

      How many Nintendo consoles sold and how many games
      How many other home consoles sold and how many games?

      No tell me consoles or console gamers mean nothing PMSL! ..It shows that consoles have always sold as well as the games, and thanks to this we have a healthy gaming market overal/

    • Psionicinversion

      You still don’t understand do you?? Take street fighter, shenmue 3 sea of thieves they are only on 1 of the consoles but are on pc as well therefore pc gets more. Those games you listed up there, yeah like Sunday driving only need to break the console out every now and again. £300 for the console is nothing that’s why its a cheap ride

    • Gamez Rule

      Yeah ok. I understand fully, and what I posted stands.

      Fact is consoles have sold billions over time and the games have too. The higtest selling games belong to consoles ( as well as other types of gaming formats ) and not just PC. I think Minecraft was the best selling PC game of all time, but that is nothing compaired to Nintendo exclusives.

      This shows that consoles and gaming while using consoles has always been good no matter what people believe.

    • Psionicinversion

      Console have sold billions?? Of what? $$$ I think you’ll find they lost billions not made billions. They do have to pay manufacturers and suppliers for the hardware… It’s not free!!

      If your talking about the hardware sale in total pc has sold 10x at least what consoles have sold and guess what pc hardware makes a profit whereas console hardware is sold majoritively at a loss. The ps4 is only making a very small profit on each one this time and well MS is probably operating at a small loss

    Xbox One Outsold PS4 In North America During E3 Week”
    Yeah and? Prove it! Talk about desperate, whats next, X1 sold better on that one day. MS and their fanboys just keep getting more and more pathetic. But then again, I guess I would be too if I was in their situation.

  • Riggerto

    Some of the announcements MS have made make them sound like they are psychotic or something-

    One minute: it’s all about the games! Congrats to Sony on E3! We won’t enter into the console debate! We are so passive Love Love Love!

    Next minute: WE OUTSOLD SONY ON E3 WEEK (hey what?! It’s just stating a fact? We didn’t mean anything by it… Jeez..)
