Xbox One Vs PS4 sales update after Titanfall

It is continuing to be an interesting sales battle between Microsoft and Sony with regards to their Xbox One and PS4 consoles. Both are proving to be extremely popular with gamers, but after Sony’s initial success it looks like Microsoft has received a massive boost thanks to the release of Titanfall.

We told you in a previous report that Titanfall has ‘saved’ Microsoft’s Xbox One sales. Now though, we have some more information to share thanks to the latest figures that have been recorded in the UK.

Microsoft has recently issued an Xbox One price cut in the UK and it looks like this has helped in the sales battle against the PS4. The general feeling at the moment is that the Sony PS4 is winning the battle and that this recent price cut has attempted to swing momentum back to Microsoft.

The well documented PS4 stock shortage hasn’t helped matters for Sony either, although once stock is fully back up to 100% this Summer we could see Sony move in for the kill.

Titanfall appears to have helped Microsoft sell many Xbox One consoles, but don’t forget that Sony could also announce similar success once the InFamous PS4 bundle buyers have been accounted for – presuming stock is still healthy of course.

Xbox One sales are thought to be 96% up at the moment, while Microsoft themselves have said that the battle against Sony is a ‘marathon, not a sprint’. The Xbox 360 proved to be the biggest seller against the PS3, but what will happen with next-gen now that Sony appears to have taken the lead?

Let us know if you have bought an Xbox One recently, and if you have had problems trying to locate PS4 stock in your area. Forgetting Titanfall for a second, have any of you bought an Xbox One simply due to the fact that you cannot buy a PS4 anywhere at the moment?

Pre-ordered a PS4 and an XBOX One when they were both announced. I was all Xbox the last two gens but frankly I cancelled my Xbox pre-order before Microsoft’s reversal of their policies last year. After that I have not looked back. The fact that Microsoft even tried to institute that stuff in the first place tells me that there is a good chance that once a certain number of consoles are sold they will subtly try and slip some of those policies back into place. A shame too, I was a bit of an Xbox fan boy but they… Read more »

I really like my PS4. I buy what I like, and I’m not loyal to anything. I went from Atari > NES > SNES > PS1 > PS2 > Wii > 360 > now PS4/Wii U, and I’ve always had a gaming PC. Console wars are dumb. I personally did not like anything about the X1. Nothing. I was never a Halo fan, and I’m not buying a console based on a new IP anyway (Titanfall). That’s just me though. I have friends who bought an X1 and they love it. It just didn’t appeal to me, and I’m naturally… Read more »

I have both and an extra nib ps4 I cant get rid of for the life of me. Ive put it on craigslist and ebay at $425 which is retail price in PA when you add in the sales tax. No bites at all.

Lol at you for saying the 360 beat ps3 sales last gen. I for one will buy titanfall on 360 and not waste $500 for a camera that is completely useless.

I went for the Xbox one due to this I had a ps3 and it needed a repair it was a brand new 6 month old ps3 slim got told that the problem wasn’t covered under warranty and I needed to pay £79.99p I asked what broke to be told it was the on board hard drive controler and it needed a hole new mother board I then said I’ll look this up found it should be covered and had trading standards send a letter getting pissed off and 8 month later I paid them and still didn’t get my… Read more »

And Titanfall sales have not lived up to the hype as word about the extremely repetitive nature of the game, the poor graphics, and the terrible AI spreads. I bought Titanfall for PC and definitely have buyer’s remorse. I played for less than 10 hours and that was enough. And now early reports are that Infamous Second Son had over a million preorders and is selling very well. One final note, Black Light Retribution is gaining significant traction on the PS4 as several popular youtube personalities have called it out as the best first person shooter available. One of these… Read more »

I bought an Xbox One due to the fact I could not find PS4 anywhere at the time, and still can’t. I havent been entirely pleased with the purchase. Titanfall is fun, but not without alot of features missing/flaws. I have to power cycle the Xbox One every so often due to black screen bug or loss of Pins/store (though network settings say Im connected). Voice commands are annoyingly hit or miss, they seem to work maybe 1/3 of the time. The store and general,Xbox one interface do not even have basic features found on the 360. It is a… Read more »
