The Xbox One’s huge Christmas victory was sadly short lived

Microsoft’s herculean efforts over the holidays were enough to temporarily push the Xbox One to the top of the charts, but now that the dust has settled, the equilibrium seems to be shifting back in Sony’s direction. Following the release of The NPD Group’s latest report, SCEA informed the press that the PlayStation 4 was the best-selling console in January. More →

The new console generation is barely a year old, but it’s already time to start considering how Sony and Microsoft are going to refresh the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One in the coming months.

Predicting failure: 5 highly anticipated video games that could flop in 2015

I think it’s fair to assume that most gamers are glad to see 2014 in the rear-view mirror. There were a few incredible successes in the video game industry, but 2014 will be remembered for its disappointments. We certainly hope that 2015 can pick up the slack, but, inevitably, there will be a few stinkers deposited on to store shelves.

Here are Sony and Microsoft’s reactions to Xbox One’s win over PS4 in December

Sony might still be in the lead when it comes to total console sales this generation, but the Xbox One has now officially taken the top spot on the NPD Group’s U.S. sales estimates for two consecutive months to round out 2014. After temporarily cutting the price of the Xbox One to $349 (which is now a permanent cut) and launching several bundles with the year’s biggest games, Microsoft finally found a way to catch up with its rival.

So how have the two companies reacted to the news? More →

This is the Xbox One’s blueprint for steamrolling the PS4 in 2015

Despite clawing its way back into the conversation at the end of the year, the Xbox One still hasn’t caught up with the PlayStation 4. The best-selling console of the generation is holding fast to its lead, but Sony knows that it wouldn’t take much to rock the boat.

2015 is the year that we stop preordering video games once and for all

2014 had so much potential.

Watch Dogs was going to change the face of gaming as we knew it. Destiny was going to bring MMO conventions to the console in the most incredible mash-up of the generation. Assassin’s Creed Unity was going to revitalize one of the most popular franchises of the past decade.

But none of that happened.

Sony hits another milestone as PS4 sales reach 18.5 million globally

Sony announced on Tuesday that PlayStation 4 sales have passed 18.5 million units as of January 4th, a huge jump from the 13.5 million of late October. This is especially good news for the Japanese corporation considering the fact that the Xbox One finally jumped the PS4 in November, potentially indicating that the unprecedented interest in Sony’s console was beginning to die down.
