Report: PS4 Will Maintain Lead, But Maybe Not In North America

The PlayStation 4 currently leads the next-gen console race, and a new report says it will continue to lead.

This report, prepared by research firm International Data Corporation (IDC), has given the public the following prediction: Sony's machine will continue to outpace Microsoft's Xbox One.

The IDC expects the PS4 to sell 51 million units by 2016 and it will have the largest global market share. However, the report says Microsoft will once again become the leader in North America if they remove Kinect from the Xbox One, thereby dropping the price. I've been saying this for a while now, but whatever:

"The presumed unbundling of Kinect and Xbox One, which should facilitate rough price parity between it and the PS4, should lead to a spike in Xbox One sales. Assuming the console and sensor are unbundled in 2015, IDC expects Xbox One to recover and emerge with the largest installed base of any console in North America by the end of 2016."

Currently, the PS4 has sold over 7 million units worldwide, while Nintendo's Wii U has only managed to move a little over 6 million (and it launched over a year and a half ago). The last official Xbox One update we have is 3 million; the console reached that number at the end of December 2013. Microsoft did say they've shipped 5 million units, though.

Lastly, the IDC predicts the continued decline of disc-based retail and as of 2019, over 50 percent of total game spending will occur in digital channels. No big surprise there, unfortunately.

Still though, having physical media up to 2019 is a pretty big victory for us oldsters.

I dunno, man. I think this whole "physical media for us oldsters" attitude is reminding me more and more of someone clinging to floppy disks, insisting on using them in their PCs just cause that's what they are used to.

It's not like we experience tons of problems and challenges with digital distribution today - and there's no reason to think it will become anything but better in the future, as the technology mature further.

And no, before anyone say so, I am *not* an unreserved defender of digital distribution. But all taken into account, and based on our experience so far, it's really not much to cry over and there are definite advantages with it too.

Beamboom,

As a given nickname of Saint, I MUST, and I repeat....I MUST......play the devil's advocate here........

As a once-avid gaming collector(until my 2011 job lay-off & financial demise) I'd have to strenuously disagree with you there.

In my case, having been an serious gaming collector(I already had 46 consoles & hand-held's, with over 2300 physical games & cartridges at that time), it always gave me intense pleasure to be able to see all those rows upon rows of physical game discs sitting all pretty & neatly on shelves after shelves, just awaiting their turn for a go-round on their preferred consoles.

But it's going to be a much sorrier state of affairs for all of all of us serious collectors as we go nearer & nearer to that dreaded "all digital age" of games.

So as far as I can surmise about our own digital games future, we collectors will wind up having nothing more to look at, except for either hundreds of fugly-looking memory cards & thumb drives sitting in a row on all of our future gaming shelves, or just 1 dull lousy-looking screen-listing of digital games that are always going to have the need of hiding deep within our consoles XMB's(as my PS3's already doing with all the free plus games).

Now with that said, I DO believe there's a place for digital games both for services like the PS+(which is much appreciated since becoming poverty-stricken), and also for those gamers who are now fully embraced in the digital age of games.

But I also have to say......& even though I realize that the developers & publishers are in it for the extra tons & tons of monies that "digital only" bring in due to almost no extra overhead involved, that there should still & always be, "CHOICE" given to us, of "BOTH" physical & digital models.

So therefore my choice is, and always will be, physical over digital.


I don't hate "digital", just "digital only"


And the scariest part is that through no fault of our own, that all the other serious gaming collectors like myself, will have their massive collections come to a horribly abrupt & final end.
*SHUTTERS AT THE MERE THOUGHT OF IT*




P.S. And here's something against digital only.........my physical copy's will ALWAYS continue in allowing me to enjoy all of their cover art.

I just knew you'd reply on that one, Biker. :)

Collectors will still collect and there will be stuff to collect for the foreseeable future. Maybe not regular disc releases, but collectors items or special editions or whatever. Collectors do find things to collect. Of that I am not worried at all. There'll be "stuff" for you guys to throw money after, rest you sure that the industry will come up with ideas for that.

But times change! And I believe that digital collections will become much more highly regarded, something to be proud of as collectors, to browse through, and put on display. It will just happen in a different way than with physical collections, obviously.

Beamboom,

Are you a collector of something, anything? I'm not trying to sound derogatory here, but I'm just curious because your words certainly don't sound as if you're one(at least not seriously) IMO.

Well of course we collect other stuff too, but I'd go as far to say that none of us(again, the serious ones) wants to change any one of our collecting to something else just because we're slowly being forced out of the physical games market.

We collect what we collect because we ALREADY know what just we wanted to collect beforehand, & not as an afterthought of being phased out of another collection.

I myself have a collection of Matchbox & Hot Wheels, etc, die-cast emergency vehicles, fire, police, ambulances, including military ones(ex volunteer firefighter), also over 1000+ HO to 1/6th sized motorcycles, an extensive collection of books on/about/or by Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs & some of their members, and a small 600+ movie DVD collection.

And FYI, even if I still had the funds to keep my gaming collections currently updated anymore, losing my ability to do so with in the upcoming "digital only" future with my gaming discs, it would not cause me to seek another set of items to start collecting one iota.

And although I usually side with you over 90% of the time throughout your postings, I think I'll just have to agree to disagree on this particular topic. LOL

BTW, not sure if you saw it or not, but I noticed on the BBC News yesterday that your Norwegian Army has been testing out the Occulus Rift for a while now in use for commanding it's tank force.

They stated that it works great at close range but it will be at least another year or more of upgrades & refinements on the O.R. to be able to use it for longer range distances, to be able to put it to use.

I have lots of digital games on PS3 and lots of physical. I prefer physical for the collector's feel (makes my gaming room look slicker) but also for practical reasons.

The biggest pain in my gaming rear end this past year was when my precious original 60gb fatty I got at release kicked the YLOD bucket. (Of course, it wasn't a 60gb then, it was 500gb with the HDD I gave it)

Every single one of my digital games (also my avatars, wallpapers.... everything, but this about the games) needed to be re-downloaded. At the time, I didn't have unlimited downloads through my ISP, so I couldn't do everything in the same month... If I wanted to play one of my games, I had to sit through PSN's download speed (that's where it bottlenecks for me), then sit through an install. And before that, since PS+ games were no longer listed under PS+, I had to scroll through my 300 item download history to locate the game I wanted to play. Eventually, I got frustrated with not being able to play what I want, when I want, and with the fact that I had to budget which titles I redownloaded every month. So, I had to temporarily upgrade my internet package to unlimited so I could download it all back.

But you know.... there was one exception to all that pain and suffering. I wanted to play some Little Big Planet with a friend... and I know what you're thinking... damn... gotta make your friend sit through half an hour or more of waiting or just not play at all...

but nope... We just sat down and played it... because I had the physical copy, and I just popped it in. I unplugged the internet so I didn't have to update it, just to be sure there was no waiting.

Because it was just the hardware that died. Why should all my software go down in a blaze of glory with it?

@Biker;
Not today. I've been a collector over the years, but not a diehard one, not on your scale. I did have a rather good collection of Star Wars figures back when I was a teen though. But nope, the short answer to your question is "no". I'm not a collector by nature.

I do understand the pain from a collectors point of view, but that must be life as a collector. We never know what will last and what will change, other than that most things likely will. Most things in life has a beginning and an end.

But if I were you, if I were collecting on this sale, I think I'd rather look at this from a positive perspective, cause now the topic of your collection - video games - have a beginning and an end. Surely there must be thousands - if not MILLIONS - of games out there still not in your collection? So been given the chance to catch up and fill that myriad of holes must feel great! Not to mention all those used games on physical copies that soon will flood the used markets... Gold!

@Underdog;
Interestingly enough, that last paragraph of yours can be used on both sides of the argument:

"Because it was just the hardware that died. Why should all my software go down in a blaze of glory with it?"

If the other piece of hardware in this picture dies - the silver disc - why should the software go down with it? With digital distribution there is no such thing as "unreadable data" cause they are always possible to restore - throughout the entire lifespan of that distribution network.

In fact that's one of my most important arguments for digital distribution: Why the heck should I have to always for the rest of my life need to have that silver disc at hand to play a game?

That makes no sense. A digital collection is just as useless as the physical collection with no hardware to play it on. In either case, if you didn't replace or repair the hardware, you'd lose it forever.

As for old disks, with my PS2 emulator on PC, I don't need a PS2. I can just put my PS2 games in the PC. So I don't see the relevance there, either. You could just download really old titles off torrents, etc... but I feel good doing things legally anyways.

It's really sad you don't get it.

Nobody talks about piracy here.
When your silver disk (the CD/DVD/bluray) gets broken or stolen or lost, your game is gone. If you got the game tied to a digital distribution channel it's just to download it again should you lose it locally. You will never lose it. That's not an option if the disc gets lost or broken. Then it's gone. That's my point.

You never lose the opportunity to get the game back again if it's tied to your PSN/Steam (or whatever) account, as you too well know.
I installed Half-Life 2 recently, and lord knows where that physical disc is today... Luckily, since it's registered on my Steam account, that doesn't matter.
Hope it made more sense now. :)

lol omg, I can't believe you start with THAT again. I refuse to correct you again. Surely you must remember my earlier replies on that. There was only one single individual on the entire internet who took those polls literal, and that was you.
So for the love of anything holy, give that a rest now. Put it down. Let go. Please.

Point is: Last autumn I dare say 8 out of 10 - at least - would have betted against the PS4 would come out on top today. I think that's cause for celebration, don't you? Hooray - and be glad you never placed a bet back then. :p

Oh, I've got plenty of proof. An entire discussion thread where Beamboom tried to explain how those polls were NOT skewed, and why there's every reason to believe that the PS4 would outsell the Xbox One by that insane margin.

I remember thinking that someone couldn't possibly be THAT out-of-touch with how things work in this country. Then I just figured that because he wasn't IN this country, he had no idea what sort of stranglehold MS has on the US.

He can try some revisionist history all he wants now. Unfortunately for him, as you say, once it's said, it's said. And we can aaaall go back and see it. ;)

*sigh*

Ok, so let's go back and look at what was said then. I can't believe i let myself getting pushed around to do this.

But here we go, the first editorial on this topic:

"Do Polls Prove That Most Core Gamers Are Siding With PS4?"
http://www.psxextreme.com/ps4-news/591.html

Core quote from me:
"As unreal as it may sound (at least if you told me so pre the pS4-unveil), I am inclined to more believe Covertons theory here, that in fact the Xbox fans have turned their back to Microsoft."

and in that same thread,
"I agree, it doesn't sound likely. I really don't think *any* theory in this case sound like a fully good explanation cause the polls are just way too extreme. That's what is so fascinating in this case."

I am pointing out that the polls are too extreme to be taken literal. That leaves us with theories as to what they may indicate, and I believed this rather indicated a shift than your "the casuals buy xbox and they don't vote" theory. THAT is what we originally discussed!

***

Then, at the next editorial on this topic...:

"PS4, Xbox One Pre-Order Numbers: What Do They Really Mean?"
http://www.psxextreme.com/ps4-news/625.html

... I posted (full post quoted),
"I don't think we should be too mathematically stuck in what the polls say, Ben, but rather use it as an indication. And as such I believe there is something behind them. I am starting to believe what they indicate.

If the preorders of Xbox is almost *half* of what the preorders of the PS4 is, then that is an EARTHQUAKE in the land where the X360 has completely dominated the sales charts for an entire generation.

If the numbers for the current generation continued we should have seen almost the opposite, with Xbone preorders being around 25-30% higher than the PS4. So from that perspective this turnaround is *colossal*."


***

It's after this point in time you start claiming that I was taking the polls literally back then and had expressed a belief in that the PS4 would outsell the Xbone on a 8:1-9:1 ratio. Over and over again you repeated it, in classic Dutka fashion, ignoring all replies.

And that's it. There you have it, for "aaaaaaall to see", as you so triumphantly put it.

Was I being optimistic in my comments back then? Of course! But I've never, not once taken any poll result litteral, only that I had a different theory than you on how they should be interpret. Again, *that* was what the discussions originally were all about.

Now in hindsight you *could* be gentleman enough to say I was onto something back then - what's to lose from that? Maybe even give me a friendly pat on the back instead of repeatedly try to ridicule me and make me look like an idiot.
I don't even understand *why* you keep going like this. Why does everything have to be a battle with you?

Underdog, the URLs are included in the post, right beneath the headlines. It's not technically possible to create a html-link within the comments but just copy-paste it into the address field of your browser.

I know you enjoy pushing buttons at times Underdog - indeed I do. I've been the victim of that a few times in the past :)

Now, I don't mind a good discussion but I've never liked "battles" where things turn personal and insults seem to become the main ingredient. In fact I hate it. It's very rare that anything good comes out of it. But some just seem to never stop, and then it becomes a question of how much one should have to take before biting back.
But I try to avoid it as all cost.

Speaking of that let me use this opportunity to say that I much, much prefer the kind of tone you and I have today than what we often had in the past, Underdog. I for one appreciate that very much.

The Xbox One is a great machine but MS is going to have to go a long way to change the villain status they've built up over the past 3 or 4 years. That's doing as much damage to them as the price difference.

I dont see how dropping kinect will magically put the x1 ahead of the ps4.PS4 will get price cuts, still have better third party versions and get more exclusives.
Its not like it will stop selling and the gap will be higher in the U.S. as time goes on.
Kinect can not be dropped anyway since it is integrated into the OS and needed for navigation and features.

Granted, un-bundling the kinect will go a long ways in helping move the x1 off the shelves, but the IDC glaring avoids the elephant in the living room; the very poor image Microsoft created for itself throughout 2013 and their disastrous back peddling on nearly every aspect of their new system. While parents and gamers will use price to drive their decision, there are other considerations to be had as well and much of that is company image and right now Microsoft is still wearing the evil villain mustache.

it doesn't matter if the xboxone would be number 1 in the usa when the difference between them and ps4 is not much[in the usa] because in the rest of the world its ps4 all the way. ,also later on who knows ps4 can also be cheaper,the usa isn't that important when in the rest of the world the ps4 beats the box3-1 ultimately.
for now,ps4 even beats the xbox in the usa,and that's already a victory

MS doesn't have any more games than the ps4 does. In fact, the ps4 has more games on it, although they are nothing to write home about.

Unless the XBOX One brings out a ton of games, and most importantly, drops the price of the system, the ps4 will have nothing to worry about.

I think that Sony might be spreading their selves a little thin with the Vita and PS3.

Don't get me wrong, I actually play the hell out of it with Toukiden, but the ps3 is the system that is rocking right now. I am currently enjoying the Tales of Symphonia Chronicles (that's 2 HUGE RPGS for the price of 10 dollars!). I waited to play this game in chronological order and will play Tales of Xillia 1 and 2 after. Then they have a Tales for the Vita coming out. I'm just in jrpg heaven. Then a new Toukiden will be coming out later this year. HOLY COW!

The ps4 is seriously lacking in rpgs and pretty much all departments. Had I known all these great games were coming out for the ps3 and Vita, I would have NEVER bought the PS4.

If MS decides to slash the price of the XBO, Sony should be able to counter that with a price drop of their own. I'm rather busy at the moment to look up the link, but the PS4's BOM is actually lower compared to the XBO's.

Xbox One is a pile of garbage, its games are sub par uninspiring wastes of time. its graphics processor is obsolete from the start. Its gold program is a scam and rips off people every time a person gets gold. There contoller is a fisher price toy from the future.etc.
Thats not even the bad things. The bad things is their capatilistic and totalitarian way of marketing,selling,advertising,etc. So if X1 takes the lead in the US even if by removing the kinects that would mean out of 317 million people in the US, a good percentage of that are mentally retarded.

For the sake of MS getting any kind of lead over Sony in the states it appears pretty obvious, remove the Kinect.
Both Sony and MS have now learned, transitioning from one gen to the next while becoming significantly higher priced results in lots of ground lost to the competition. As MS clings to their Kinect vision they just keep handing potential users over to Sony. I think Sony will just continue to generally outsell MS (if they don't drop the Kinect), maybe occasionally losing some months along the way.
I also think MS spends a lot more in marketing, stateside, like A LOT more. So even when we see great numbers for XO occasionally, it probably came at a major expense that likely wouldn't be re-couped anytime soon.

not just in the US, if $ony continues to treat their fans outside the US like they have for the past few years, i wouldnt be surprised to see M$ take over every territory by the end of the generation!
at least M$ pretends to give a sh*t about their customers no matter which piece of geological soil they call home.

Care to clarify this? Also interested in what part of Microsoft's actions show they care about anyone, or everyone?

I mean, most of the Xbox One's features only work in the US... sooooo

yeah some how i don't think the xbox will lead in NA personally cos well M$ is aragant well they seem desperate to hang on to the kinect and well the console is still quite a bit less powerfull which wud play into it still i think i may be wrong but i just don't see M$ catching up that much personally.

happy gaming =)

I think MS wins NA just because it is a NA company. I mean, American's are pretty arrogant and all patriotic and crap.

I really hope the PS4 wins in NA but, I would like to see it return to global dominance. They need to start getting more exclusives though, and doing more marketing deals with publishers. One of the biggest reasons why MS has sold so well in NA is their deal with Activision for COD.

I can't help but think the PS4 thus far has been a disappointment with games slow in coming. Hopefully, after E3, things will pick up.

given that microsoft says they'kl never unbundle the kinect from the xbone and the fact that the PS4 is just better overall, i highly doubt the xbone will suddenly do better the the PS4... only i microsoft's dreams.. oh and I prefer physical copies of games, always have and always will andd so do most people.. at least the ones I know
