How do you attract more customers, if you are selling your ace card somewhere else too?
How many ps5 will fly of the shelf, if their games are day1 on pc?
Pc is a market disruption. While its neutral place, the idea of having your games day1, will reduce the value of your console.
All you need is 1 thought. "Why do I need to buy this console, if the game is on my pc?, why would I spend 300$-500$ on it, if all the games will be on my pc".
Another form factor, which is 3rd party games. Both consoles have exclusive 3rd party games, that are on pc. When you have those games, and the console games, your idea of getting that console is out of the windows. Its not worth investing in it, after that point.
Its the reason why Sony is highly careful of it. The moment they do day1 on pc, their value will plummet. The appeal of the Playstation consoles will fall off, once its exclusive hits day1 on pc.
Only reason we are not seeing too much negative on xbox, is that they had worst e3 of their life, and almost killed their console. Their parent company owns 70% of the computers in the world, through their windows OS. So its easy for them to have main store on it, and put their games on it.
I seriously don't know why a known Xbox fanboy Paul Tassi is given the light of day on this forum? He's a running joke on Resetera and rightly so.Why you all discussing article, based on a week old news, from a known insane fanboy?
You're scraping the bottom of the barrel if you're pulling anything from Paul Tassi at Forbes Contributor which is why this thread is more amusing than anything.Why you all discussing article, based on a week old news, from a known insane fanboy?
Glad the article highlights the two main factors in this: availability and momentum.
PS5's are in short supply, so it makes sense that as long as Microsoft can keep consoles on shelves, they'll out sell a competitor who is physically unable to manufacture consoles fast enough to meet the insane demand for the PS5.
Wait, some dumbass put on ignore list but still found the time to tell you that? What? ahahhaha.I heard that if you speak logic, you will be put on ignore list.
Got couple of people telling me, I am on their ignore list, simply because I told them, what they didn't like.
My recent one, was a guy who told me I had to watch YouTube to know the plot of last of us 2. Like dude, I played the game, gave you the summary of what I saw. How is that YouTube video summary.
In short, its futile to argue with these people. Logic doesn't work in their favor.
The point is, first year of consoles is hard. In order for you to sell the games, you need enough consoles to reach certain demand for games.Consoles are sold to sell games. The consoles themselves are a neccessary evil to these companies. The money is in software for the most part
Yup. Took a picture about it, and post it here. As if its something to brag about it.Wait, some dumbass put on ignore list but still found the time to tell you that? What? ahahhaha.
Lol yeah we haven’t heard a peep out of MS since the Steam Deck announcement, makes you wonder what they’re thinking about it. On the one hand they could freeload and get Xbox into a portable state through Steam Deck. On the other hand Valve is trying to strengthen Steam outside of Windows.
I don’t know man…this goes against the prevailing narrative that nobody wants these things and they are piling up on store shelves.Bought a series s for my kid today. I gotta say, it's pretty great
I guess it's a good sign for MS though I don't think it means much given the shortages and the fact that Switch has broken the record for most NPD hardware sales for nearly 3 years straight. That's not downplaying it, it's just being honest.Well deserved, people will try to downplay it lol
There is some truth to this but the "amazing feats" people have been discussing over the past few months involve PS5 setting all time industry records despite shortages.PS5 outselling everyone: Wow what an amazing feat.
Xbox outselling everyone: Meh it must be a supply issue.
That’s crazy to say that when there are literally images of them sitting on shelves! Like what kinda mental gymnastics is needed to bend time and space to ignore that and push a narrative as if people are lying? This console wars stuff is crazy as hell and congrats to MSI don’t know man…this goes against the prevailing narrative that nobody wants these things and they are piling up on store shelves.
Seriously, congrats on the purchase. Thinking of getting one to compliment my XSX. People sure seem to love them once they use them.
I think it will still be (in unit sales) 1. Switch 2. Sony 3. MS for most months, but the difference this gen is when XSX gets a big release it will probably move up to second place, and when the Bethesda games start rolling in MS will will probably take second place most months in general. Playstation will be weaker in the US but still stronger internationally.Wow, congrats Microsoft. People must of liked their e3 show. Going to be interesting to see what it looks like when the shortage is over for both systems.
I don;t think i ever saw Series X and ps5 ever sitting on a shelf in usaThat’s crazy to say that when there are literally images of them sitting on shelves! Like what kinda mental gymnastics is needed to bend time and space to ignore that and push a narrative as if people are lying? This console wars stuff is crazy as hell and congrats to MS
I’ve seen 4 series s total on store shelves 0 series X and 0 PS5. The next time I went back they were gone.
Sereis S is more common. One day i was at gamestop and they told me they gotr some series S in the back. However tbh, there are so many series X restock this month anyone that really want one at retail price can easily get it.I’ve seen 4 series s total on store shelves 0 series X and 0 PS5. The next time I went back they were gone.
That’s the funny thing with those pics of unsold Series S, we don’t know if it was just after a restock and nobody knew they were there yet or how long they sat for before selling out.
It could literally be an employee taking a pic right after they set up the display, before the store even opened.
