PSXE Poll Update: PS4 Will Trounce Xbox One This Year
Most analysts agree that sales of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the US will be about even this holiday season.
But perhaps unsurprisingly, most of our readers believe Sony's console will significantly outstrip Microsoft's over the next seven weeks. The next biggest group said the PS4 will win by a slimmer margin.
The PS4 has the benefit of launching a week earlier with a price tag that's $100 cheaper. Sony may also take advantage of lingering bad press surrounding the Xbox One, although Microsoft has eliminated those policies everyone seemed to hate (DRM, always-connected system, Kinect required, etc.). The other bonus is that GameStop and other retailers are saying the PS4 is leading the pre-order charge; some stores have a lot more pre-orders for Sony's new game console. That all being said, Microsoft will undoubtedly benefit from the mainstream appeal of the Xbox brand during the holiday rush.
This week, we want to know your take on the recently released Call of Duty: Ghosts, which has received only lukewarm critical acclaim. Despite utilizing a tried-and-true formula - and getting a ton of mileage out of it - the franchise appears to be wavering. What do you say?
