Sony is better off just making a Vita that has no hardware other than what's needed to stream PS4 games for remote play, sell it for $100 and they should make a good profit off it. Certainly a better business proposition than the Vita is now.
Well, more software has come out and the price has already dropped. And here we are. Anything can happen, but I think it might be time to brace yourself for the possibility that there may not be a fix to this problem.
we know WiiU is at 3.91 million or so, including the EU (from press releases or whatever).
So it's slightly behind the Vita WW- by about a million units or so. I honestly have no idea which will outsell the other, but Sony has a habit of supporting things WAY past their sell by date and getting away with it.
Best Buy PR: Weve Sold Many More PS4′s Than Xbox Ones Posted Dec 12 2013 by Dylan Zellmer
This evening iGR covered Best Buys Ultimate Gamers Showdown, Madden 25 tournament. I had the opportunity to speak to Sony, Xbox, and more importantly, Best Buy PR while spectating the tourney. While company policy prohibits stating exact sales figures of any product, I was given a general statement as to which next-gen console is currently selling better at Best Buy. On-site members of Best Buys Senior PR team stated, Weve sold many more PS4s than Xbox Ones. The staff also noted, Both products are selling extremely well. This being Best Buys flagship store in Richfield, MN, less than a mile from corporate headquarters; I take these numbers as a general trend of nationwide sales thus far.
That fact was driven home by the sheer amount of next-gen stock that Best Buy had on-hand. The retailer had nine PS4 units (two of which purchased moments later) and over thirty Xbox One consoles in-stock. Another surprising revelation was that the Madden 25 tournament was being played exclusively on PS4 hardware. And yes, before another Theres PS4′s in-stock article is printed; PS4s and Xbox Ones were both available at Best Buy.
The fact remains that both consoles have sold over two million units since they launched. But Best Buy was just one stop I made tonight. I also visited my local GameStop before heading home. The CSR working when I arrived pretty much mirrored the statements from Best Buy saying, We dont have any PS4′s for sale right now, but we have about 25 Xbox Ones. The rep added, I get calls everyday from customers looking for PS4′s.
In the end both Sony and Microsoft have enjoyed stellar console launches. How things stack up long-term remains to be seen.
theres sooo many things to be sad about... sad. Always, reading this threads is hard because, the first thing that you are going to see (even before the really bad news), is that fucking top 10 list... after years and years, and it still hurts me :,,
