The reflections of the media show in the Q1 2014 sales report from Sony, which claims the PS4 garnered three times the sales of the Xbox One. This is rather impressive considering the previous dominance of the Xbox 360 in the United States.
The amount came to 3.5 million, compared to Microsoft’s 1.1 million Xbox One and Xbox 360 sales.
Sony and Microsoft both don’t seem willing to show proper details on the sales of their latest consoles.
Whatever the case, it is plain to see Sony is having a better time in 2014 than Microsoft. The new head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, has moved the core focus away from entertainment, which has mostly been sacked under the management of Satya Nadella, towards gaming.
Microsoft has had the only modest exclusive on the Xbox One in the name of Titanfall. Currently, this stands as the only promising exclusive either new console has offered, and the lineup for the end of 2014/start of 2015 favors the Xbox One, in our opinion.
The consoles will have to stand the test of time, as plenty can change in five years and the last console generation took ten years to end. Microsoft might not be getting what they want right now, but give them five years, they could be floating ahead of the PS4.
