I'm also not sure why anyone is expecting congratulations considering everyone knew this would happen anyway.

and the xbox one still has not outsold the atario 7800.

i still think that ps4 and xb1 are still riding their hype trains though. they had a big surge in the start from people who wanted them right away, but im not sure if that will hold up in the long run. im sure we'll have a better idea after this years holiday season, but i honestly wouldn't be surprised if nintendo has continued sales while the other two get stale and peter out a lot more.

I don't care which console sold more, if the console has the games and features I want I buy it. Simple as that.

A lot of people on this site expected the PS4 and Xbox One to sell as bad as Wii U.

I agree. If Wii U keeps it's current momentum, and Xbox One/PS4 lose some of their momentum, it might make the Wii U look like it's being supported more, then more people will go buy one.

Maybe the "casual" crowd is taking their time. They are "casual", after all.

No one really knew, though. I wouldn't have expected CoD to outsell Killzone, either.

I think if anyone seriously thinks the wii u will out sell the xbone or PS4 they are quite frankly mental, I'd rather a wii u than the other 2 personally but I'm not delusional about how its likely to sell against the other 2.

I think it comes from people expecting another video game crash which again is another hard thing to predict.

That's pretty harsh. People were predicting Xbox and PS would outsell Wii U, before they were even announced. That's just as much, if not more mental.

People were literally riding their hopes on consoles that didn't even exist. Sony's pre market build of the PS4 froze on stage at E3, and people were still worried about disc based DRM.

There were plenty of reason to think PS4 and Xbox One wouldn't do as well as they did, which is easy to accept, seeing as they are doing well(Sony still isn't making money). The same criticism goes both ways. It was just a matter of time to see how things played out. Now that we have seen some success, it's not hard to accept the reality of the situation, which has actually happened.

Really? Killzone is a healthy franhcise but its never done Call of Duty numbers. The only two series that do Call of Duty numbers in the multiplayer FPS market these days are battlefield and Halo.

WAT!

I'm not sure why you think PS4 wouldn't outsell Wii U considering it was hyped like crazy and preorders were selling out everywhere

People forget that Sony have two home consoles that passed 100 million sales.

@Jazzer94
The same can be said about Nintendo. GBA, DS, and Wii all sold over 100 million consoles, so what's your point?
http://www.gamnesia.com/articles/nintendos-lifetime-hardware-...

Even the NES sold gangbusters at around 60 million. Not only that, but what you're saying is relevant, happened years ago. You're going to have to go into more detail about why it matters.

@shingi_70
Ya, really. PS4 owners have an exclusive game that is comparable, but still admittedly different, and still decided to buy the multiplat game tat comes out every year.

EDIT: @Unca_LZ
I didn't see anymore hype than what I thought the Wii U had, so I didn't make anything of it.

Actually, no. People predicted (correctly) that the PS4/Xbox would do better than the Wii-U at launch because...

A) The PS3 and 360 were both massively successful
B) The hype for both systems (especially PS4) was off the charts in terms of media coverage, fan interest and advertising
C) Pre-orders for both systems sold out

A) Wii was just as much, if not more successful
B) Hype is a matter of opinion, and I didn't see any hype that indicated it would sell more than anything else, which is my opinion
C) Ya, so did Wii U's. People either didn't go and pay, or bought multiples to sell on eBay. The eBay part happened to the other ones, even still.

EDIT: All these supposed indicators of success were applicable to Nintendo's console as well, so I don't get how it made more of a difference for Xbox One or PS4.

Even ignoring the validity of the idea, I'm going with PS4's success and Wii U's issues being traced back to their previous consoles' later support because I will never be more disappointed with Nintendo than the time they let NOTHING come out over here between Mario Sports Mix and Kirby while also having a terrible launch window for their new handheld. I mean they righted a wrong a few months later as you all know, but that killed Nintendo's momentum in a way I have not seen since Microsoft bought Rare. Especially bad since I was hardcore Wii defender before that point.
