Just going to come out and say that I am salty... was hoping for a MS crash and burn, so they would reduce the price of there weaker hardware. Then I could pick one up.

Fuck. Why couldn't you 900000 people wait a bit.

I have to say, this is really interesting.

Casual audience is non existent on PS4, could be bad thing in the long run, especially seeing the XBO version selling well, even more than the Wii U version.

XBO is looking like the winner of this generation, they have both hardcores and casuals.

So when should we expect these supposed Sony 'supply issues' to be solved? Should we look forward to a complete and absolute Sony domination in January? Or Feb? Maybe March?
Typical from you, set the bar so high, so when it won't happen, tell people they're were wrong.

It's really getting hard to differentiate between joke posts and serious posts.

I don't think it's entirely about the audience… PS Camera detection is bad in Just Dance 2014, especially with 2+ players. Whether it's Ubisoft's or Sony's fault I don't know, but the experience is far better on Kinect, even the Xbox 360's Kinect. As for PS Move (the other way to play the game on PS4) it basically equals Wii/Wii U controls, but buying a Wii & Wiimotes remains the much cheaper option – not to mention this is the first Just Dance with online multiplayer, which is free on Wii & Wii U.

Also, Just Dance Kids 2014 spin-off released (October 2013) on Wii+Wii U+360, while the previous entries (Just Dance Kids, Just Dance Kids 2) had a PS3 version as well. It seems Just Dance is becoming irrelevant on PlayStation hardware.

What's more interesting is the fact that several sources (NPD, France numbers, UK charts) show that the Just Dance series is finally seeing a huge drop-off… It'll be interesting to watch how Ubisoft handles the future of the series, considering it's now their second biggest franchise.

The thing is that Ps4 is still ahead of the Xbox One in NA, even after the severe supply constrains.

The demand for the Ps4 seems to be much higher. Especially seeing how the Ps4 is still supply constrained while the Xbox One can be found basically everywhere.

Yeah I agree, XB1 won't be winning again until it gets a price cut of $100.

I love how people will continue to kick the MS is doomed can down the road.

They are not, they are here to stay and they did very well.

That being said, I helped everyone .... I picked up a XBone, PS4 and White Vita.

People are desperately lost to fanboyism and would buy a box of rocks if it said XBox on it just so they could feel cool. Old habits die hard.
Yeah because there is no good reason to buy an Xbox .... I think we know who is the fanboy here.

Yeah, because casuals like to pay $100 more

They just can't find Ps4 consoles right now.
PS4 has a higher install base in US, so why didn't JD sell more? Nothing to do with not being able to find consoles.

Mess.

I'm just saying the casual audience will give XBO more longevity. Sony can't rely only on hardcores.
That probably depends on what people the PS4 draws in. It still has mainstream value in streaming without secondary subscriptions, and the casual audience IS fickle. And the camera is selling well anyway.

Oh they will drop the price. It is a matter of time. I predict first price drop for Christmas after Sony beats them for 5-6 consecutive months in NPDs.
