The PS4 is seemingly emerging as an early winner in the next gen console race.
Industry insider Ahsan Rasheed (better known as thuway on popular gaming forum NeoGaf) believes that the PlayStation 4 will gain 66 to 70 percent of market share when all is said and done, occupying two-thirds of the market over its competitor, the Xbox One.
However, it’s not all good news at Sony according to the man. “I’ve heard folks at Sony are both excited and afraid of the PS4’s momentum. Things are being read carefully, and lids are being sealed.” He continued, “It’s scary how much momentum Sony has going forward. I expect PS4 to gain 66-70% market share once the dust settles.”
But that’s not all. Sony is apparently working on a Japanese RPG for the PlayStation 4. Details are vague though. “I heard something about Sony’s internal JRPG on PS4, but it’s vague, and I’ll leave it up to the original source to break it. He’s around.”
What are your thoughts on these developments? As of now, Sony is expanding its influence around the globe with the PS4 set to launch in India and Japan in January and February respectively. It’s also sold more than 2.1 million units worldwide as of December, first week. How much further could it go? We’ll need to wait and find out but the Xbox One certainly has its work cut out for it.
