PS4 expected to continue crushing the Xbox One through 2019

PS4 vs. Xbox One Sales

There are plenty of great reasons to buy an Xbox One. I still stand by my assessment at the end of 2014 in which I decided that the Xbox One has evolved into a better console than the PlayStation 4 in many regards, but unsurprisingly, the market isn’t showing a very strong reaction to my articles.

On Wednesday, VentureBeat shared data from the latest report from research firm Strategy Analytics, which predicts that the PlayStation 4 will outsell the Xbox One by 40% over the course of the next four years. The firm says that Sony is “on a path to reproduce the success of the PlayStation 2.”

According to Strategy Analytics’ projections, Sony will sell 80 million PS4s by 2019 and Microsoft will move 57 million Xbox One units.

“Strong Year One shipments and a quickly growing installed base for PS4 and Xbox One are proving that game consoles are still an essential part of the ecosystem,” Strategy Analytics digital media strategies service director Michael Goodman said.

There was some question as to whether or not the reliance on consoles was beginning to become a relic of the game industry, but both the PS4 and the Xbox One have proven that this was nothing more than an intriguing hypothesis. Goodman and his partners believe that the future of cloud gaming and digital downloads will live alongside consoles rather than take their place.
