PS4 vs Xbox One

PS4 appears to be dominating the Xbox One in the sales stakes

Sony appears to have Microsoft well and truly beat in the battle between PS4 and Xbox One.

The true extent of the PS4’s dominance may have just been revealed by EA chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen.

In the latest EA earnings call, Jorgensen estimated that the combined install base of the PS4 and Xbox One was 103 million units by the end of last year.

As DualShockers points out, the PS4 is estimated to have shifted 73.6 million consoles by the end of 2017.

This would leave the Xbox One with an estimated 29.4 million sales.

While the figures are based on estimates, it gives fans an indication of how strong PS4 sales are compared to Xbox One.

EA predicts that combined PS4 and Xbox One sales could hit 130 million by the end of 2018.

Xbox One has arguably suffered from a lack of first-party exclusives, although this could be remedied at this year’s E3.

The Xbox One E3 conference is shaping up to be the biggest one ever, as Microsoft teases some huge game announcements.

After celebrating a successful year for the Xbox brand, Microsoft said that the upcoming conference would be “filled with new games”.

“It’s a great time to be a gamer and to be a part of Team Xbox,” reads an Xbox Wire blog post.

“We’re hard at work on exciting plans for E3, from what will be a great briefing filled with new games to the fan experience at the Microsoft Theater.

“This is our biggest E3 yet, and we look forward to a great week for gamers. Again, thank you to the amazing Xbox community.”

A Crackdown 3 release date is almost certain to be revealed, while a new Halo game is rumoured.

Microsoft’s E3 press conference takes place on June 10, so hopefully we’ll find out more then.
