The argument over which console is better will never be settled. There are too many numbers, personal preferences, and opinions to ever make that argument end. Just look at the PC vs. Mac battle. Has it ever been definitively settled?(No, it has not.) I don’t want to get into semantics about 7 million sold versus 5 million shipped either. Let’s instead focus on one key factor, games. Games are the main reason to own any console. The following graphic was originally posted on NeoGAF buy a user named deadpixel. The graph gives a somewhat profound illustration as to why people focused on gaming have been buying the PS4 over the Xbox One.
I’ll help you with the math. That adds up to 41 games on Xbox One and 68 on PS4. While you let that soak in, remember this is only from November when the consoles launch until May of 2014. I’ll be the first to agree that numbers aren’t everything and quality does matter. Personally, I had just never seen the amount of games laid out to me like this and was a little stunned by it.
Anybody else a little dazed by this comparison?
