Wow, way to be perpetually offended to state the obvious. One can still argue anyway those are linear games since the story-based narrative events flow simply one way, there are not many if any branch paths in the story that can lead to a vast variety of endings.
Colteastwood owns PlayStation consoles, I guess that keeps him from being bias. Your actions speak volumes. lolYep, such an Xbox fanboy I'm mainly playing SNES and PlayStation games this weekend. Maybe you are projecting yourself onto me and you just incessantly call other people Xbox fanboys out some guilt of being a giant shill yourself? Dunno, maybe go see a psychiatrist about it
It wasn't a blanket statement; it was a general to-the-point statement since it was barely the focus of that post. The point there was, when most of these people who keep asking for MS to release "1P bangers" do so, they usually keep bringing up the sort of Sony games that fit that label more closely than others.
But here you are getting offended and triggered thinking I made the mention as a qualitative statement, like I was inferring one type of game is inherently better than the other. No, that's YOU reading into it because you have some bias against me picturing me as something I'm not. Go deal with that off the forum.
So once again, suddenly 3P games magically don't count. Also maybe take a look at Sony's own software figures before making these claims while conveniently ignoring that 3P releases make up 83% of their own platform's software revenue and, uh, last I checked the vast majority of those are on Xbox as well.
You guys can never quantify what a "big budget AAA release" even is, you say this like it's a single type of game, in a single type of genre. But I can generally infer what you mean when you say it, which shows how limited that talking point really is. Also your statement here is chock full of hypocrisies and unintended ironies; "biggest marketing budgets" could also mean things you probably don't want to think they could mean, like access media privileges in return for early copies and free sway (this stuff happens in the movie industry all the time you would be naive to think it doesn't happen in gaming as well).
You are making a very selfish argument because truth be told there are many other things that draw people into a gaming ecosystem outside of just 1P AAA games; I mentioned a lot of those and while it's debatable if PS5 is as good at some of those other things mentioned, nonetheless it does provide them which are also draws in and of themselves. You guys forever get caught in narrow-minded tunnel vision and you just end up recycling the same stale talking points over and over even with literal proof that those talking points either aren't true, or don't hold up in practice the way they do in your imagination.
Now leave me alone while I go have some time with my PlayStation (uh oh maybe I can't play that anymore since I just made a post that didn't completely kick Xbox in the balls and licked PlayStation's butthole )
Next time on; tales pulled from the ass.
UK sales thread. Cites NPD. Asks me to do researchDo a little research and check the latest NPD sales thread. Dual Sense is the number one accessory for many months in a row.
"March 2021 spending on video game accessories reached a March record $300 million, 26% higher when compared to a year ago. First quarter accessory dollar sales totaled $717 million, 42% higher than a year ago.
The PS5 DualSense Wireless Controller White was the leading accessory in dollar sales for the month of March as well as the first quarter."
Don't feed him, he's a fanboy nothing more. Just to add I live in the UK and I only just got hold of one this week. I've been on the look out for one for months. It was in stock for about 20mins on Microsoft's store, the Series S however is available and has been for the last month or so.Cannot seem to find series x ready available in USA, uk, Canada, Australia, Germany, France etc. Can you please give me an examples where Xbox series x is easy to get? now I am really curious.
Dude, we are just having a friendly discussion . its all fun and games, and nobody is really actually pissed by this news. We fight over literally everything and Its just a friendly jab .Why is it a big deal when Xbox users celebrate sales, but PS users celebrating outselling Xbox while losing to Switch is just fine? Someone help me out here.

Just over 90,000 games consoles were sold in the UK for the four weeks ending May 1st, 2021, according to GfK Entertainment.
It's a sharp drop of 59% over the same period in 2020. Of course, April 2020 was the first full month of the original lockdown in the UK, and that had an immediate effect on sales of games, consoles and accessories.
Interesting, I wonder if it will be enough to outsell the Switch this month.It is not a big deal, it is hilarious actually. Claiming that XSX outsold PS5 despite it was in 2nd place. Making news about being 2nd and ahead of PS5 it is just sign of desperation for Xbox sites.
It is the important to be ahead of PS5. Doesn't matter if Switch was the best selling console in April.
Real source was this, but Windows Central, of course, made a news on their own :
Anyway, let us see will PS5 be the best selling console in May
