2014 for the gaming industry is very interesting year. In this year we have seen the rise and downfall of many anticipated titles. Some unexpected games also visit the PC camp and on the other hand, games like Call of Duty: Advanced land on PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms, Metal Gear series has finally landed on the PC platform and we have also seen new technologies to support like AMD API Mantle. Ryse Son Rome makes his debut on PC and The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter a game with less than 1.5GB of memory requirements surprise everyone with amazing textures. There is no doubt in it that Console Gaming this year play a very major role in Gaming if you see the exclusive title of both consoles and sales of both Xbox One and PS4. Sales of both Consoles in a year has been increased if we compare the sales stats with the previous Generation console (Xbox 360 and PS3) sales of first year. The year is going to end in a few days, so where both Current-Generation consoles are standing now lets find out.
PS4 vs Xbox One – Console wars of 2014 are coming to an end
From the start when both Consoles Xbox One and PS4 have been released. Sony PS4 makes a huge leap in terms of sale the most eye catching thing was Exclusives titles and attractive price. While the Xbox One has certainly gained quite a bit of ground lately, it’s not too surprising to see that the PS4 is still leading by quite a large margin more than one year since launch. If we see the stats published in the month of November statistics. Into the light of those statistics we come to know that Sony has sold an an impressive 2.6 million consoles last month, which puts their total number of PS4 systems sold at around 17.3 million. The other player in this race is also not too far behind in November with 2.3 million Xbox One units sold, the total number of XBox one sold till November at about 10.1 million. Black Friday plays very major role for Xbox One in terms of increasing sale.
Unsurprisingly, the PS4 is leading yet again this month with about 781 k units sold in the week ending on December 13th, compared to the approx. 546 k Xbox One consoles sold during the same period. While the rivalry known as the ‘ console wars ‘ will likely continue for a very long time, perhaps it’s time to look at the big picture here. Both the PS4 and Xbox One are selling incredibly well, which is always great news for the gaming industry as a whole. Next year will bring more developers in both Consoles as according to several news both are moving to a new Process node.
