PS4 losing customers to XBox One

88 replies 3200 views Edited Jun 19, 2013

People are saying that they are cancelling PS4 pre orders and moving to Microsoft console (check XBox facebook)

Besides the patch fiasco, this is not a good day for Sony...

 

If something good can come out of this is that Sony are not gonna get lazy thinking they already won the console war

You're checking the Xbox Facebook.

 

Who likes the page for the Xbox Facebook? Xbox fans.

 

They're not losing customers to Xbox One. Xbox One is just taking some of its customers back.

Which means that some Sony loyalists might move up on the launch day lists. If people want to be swayed by a PR-influenced retraction, that is their right.

spoken like a true fanboy... are you gonna tell me that you didn't watch the XBox E3 conference? you gotta know what going on on the other side (even though i already made my desicion)

 

"They're not losing customers to Xbox One. Xbox One is just taking some of its customers back."

 

not if they previously jumped to the PS4 boat...

I mean that people that were Xbox loyalists beforehand. Who changed their mind because of Xbox's policies. And are now going back to Xbox. The people who had 360's before because they didn't like PS3, and were going to buy PS4 because of MS's policies, and are now going back to the same company.

 

I should've said "Microsoft is taking its customers back", not Xbox One. 

 

I highly doubt anyone who was going to buy a PS4 because they like the PS4 (And not because they didn't like the Xbox One) all of a sudden changed their mind.

as a former xbox customer I want to say that I'm still staying here. I might be fast to cool my anger down but I'm very good at keeping grudges.

But it's really not that suprising. Quite a lot of x360 fans only had a major problem with DRM,kinect and price. Now most important to them has been fixed atleast partially.

What I fear is that casuals will go for x1 now as they don't care about pure gaming and x1 lame tv aditions will seem more usefull for idiot parents.

ban me all you want, keep taking this down all you want, i will post the truth

1. the kinect will not be a privacy issue as it CAN be turned off. if you're still THAT paranoid. COVER YOUR MIC AND CAMERA! use your brain if sony still lets you have one http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/privacy


2. ps+ isn't that special. free games? license transfer. it's been around longer


3. no backwards compatibility? well, golly gee! i guess i'll just keep my 360! no brainer there!

4. we don't require a handheld like the vita for our second screen capability. any smartglass capable device will do

5. http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/update

no online check in and buying, selling, and trading will stay as they are

If you are looking at the xbox fb, of course xbox fans will say that kind of stuff. Im sticking to the ps4, never really a fan of the xbox.
