By that logic, the Wii U must be selling more than PS4 or Xbone (it's not). Price is only one determinant of sales. Utility (perceived satisfaction by the consumption of the product), supply constraints, etc.. all play a part.

In this case, utility also includes factors like satisfaction from the product's features, availability of games, etc..


The PS3 is ahead of the X360 in total global sales, even though it's been out a year to 1.5 years less on the market AND has maintained a higher average price.

The PS3 did not catch 360 until this year and, as we all know, that generation is over.

A generation is over once its consoles are discontinued. Does your generation end when you have a child? No.... It just means we have overlapping generations.a generation will be judged based on the sales from launch to discontinuation.

The PS2 sold tens of millions of units after the PS3 launched. The PS3 continues to sell well and is still being supported with new big games.

Why do people care who sold more systems? Both have really good games. The point should be that both MS and Sony sold enough systems and software to be profitable to guarantee the next generation of gaming. Just enjoy the games now as you never know when this business will become unprofitable for them. Case in point Sony, as many of their other lines of products have lost a bunch of cash - http://www.pcworld.com/article/20382...truggling.html

Nothing against Sony but it shows how fast a stable company can lose a boatload of money.

We live in a world of competition. Look around: everything is a competition. Retail and grocery store pricing, sports, gas prices, parking spaces, who can purchase the game first, online leaderboards ..everyone is always striving to have and/or do the best. That's just the way it is and always will be. Keeps life interesting and fun. If the consumers didn't care who had the best console then we would still be playing Atari's. Development is consumer driven.

That is after price cuts, and a bigger gaming library, and this is when I think the X1 will start to take off. The Wii U is a part of the PS4/X1 gen, it isn't doing well because for what you get it's expensive. It's graphics of a 360/PS3 with a higher price tag, and the portable controller didn't go well with people.

The main point is hoping all three systems do well so we have an innovative market for the future. I'm actually glad the PS3 had a lackluster time at the start because recent exclusives like Grand Theft Auto, and Final Fantasy would of never been on the 360 if the PS3 swamped the 360 in sells. Not to mention Kingdom Hearts 3 is now coming out for both the X1, and PS4. This is a great time for gaming. Lets relish this moment regardless if we have a PS4, X1, or Wii U. Next goal is to have cross platform multiplayer capabilities. Cross your fingers :D

That generation is over. No one cares anymore and developers are switching over to next gen projects because that is where the market growth is. Give Sony a slow clap for having a small, almost imperceptible lead after being behind for the entire length of the Generation but MS had the lead when it counted, and for all practical purposes, all Sony did was tie things up after it became clear that new machines were going to be released this year.

PlayStation 4 users can now stream music videos for free



Quote:
The application lets users stream music videos for free on the console and has been “fully optimized” for the PS4 to offer “faster start up times and quick navigation,” as well as “enhanced social integration features” including grabbing screenshots and sharing them with friends over Twitter and Facebook directly from the PS4 controller, and having VidZone activity displayed in friends’ “What’s New” feed.

On each of the three games I own on my PS4, each of them has crashed at least once where I am asked to send off an error report to Sony. Hopefully they get this fixed in the future with a software update.
