I know man, I was just making the point that just because you see someone walking out of BestBuy with an Xbone(r) doesn't mean they did not do their research, or doesn't know any better.

Ok, I wasn't looking at the total... I was looking at the total each by comparison.

I stand corrected.

Check your maths.

Check yours.

In the 2:1 scenario, if 100 Xbones were sold, 200 PS4s were sold. 300 in total.

100 Xbones / 300 consoles = 33.33%

In the 3:1 scenario, if 100 Xbones were sold, 300 PS4s were sold. 400 in total.

100 Xbones / 400 consoles = 25%

You were trying to cite a generalization based on a proportion of the population while couching it in the numbers of a relative proportion.

By mixing your frames of reference, I stand by my prior statement.

Well, we found part of the minority... (should be 33% and 25% respectively)

Check your maths.
2 to 1 = 200% or 2/1
2 to 1 = for every 2 ps4's sold there was 1 xbone sold.

2 ps4s ... 1 xbone
4 ps4s ... 2 xbones
6 ps4s ... 3 xbones
7 ps4s ... 3.5 xbones
8 ps4s ... 4 xbones

For xbones... the number is 50%. (Half)
For PS4s... the number is 200% (Double)

3 to 1 = 300% or 3/1
3 to 1 = for every 3 ps4's sold there was 1 xbone sold.

3 ps4s ... 1 xbone
6 ps4s ... 2 xbones
9 ps4s ... 3 xbones
10 ps4s ... 3.3 xbones
11 ps4s ... 3.6 xbones
12 ps4s ... 4 xbones

For xbones... the number is 33%. (A Third)
For PS4s... the number is 300% (Triple)

I don't know why you all are surprised.

3:1 is what the pre-launch polls were showing worldwide, and 2:1 in the US.

It pretty much played out that way.
I guess that means 50% of us are stupid, while the rest of the world is only 33% stupid. Heh.

I don't think stupidity has as much to do with it as you imply, it is mostly the games that are still exclusive to one console that matters more for people than hardware specs.
I have friends that own the Xbone because they've liked the 360 a lot more than the PS3 and some of the games like Forza, or Halo only available on the Xbone.
Some of their friends are also own the Xbone not the PS4 so for them the decision was simple, go where your friends go.

At the end of the day it is all about the games. If Microsoft manages to secure some killer first party devs they will easily turn this around.
At least now they are on the right track with pricing and "features" not locked to stupid always online crap. Unfortunately the damage is already done, and not everyone wants to own more than 1 console.

I don't think anyone's surprised as much as celebrating their fuckup, since pretty much everyone here said "that's fucking stupid" when MS rolled out their original plan...

And while polls are sometimes accurate (and sometimes not), there was also the question of how many people were just pissed at MS, but would still open their wallets once they scaled things back a bit.

For me, personally, I don't miss the adbox 360 at all...

Well, MS is learning the hard way. Maybe should have not been so arrogant about their features. Also, shouldn't have put all their eggs in the xbox basket and ignored PC gaming. How's that thorn in the bottom of your foot? Quit your crying, we TOLD you not to run barefoot through the briar patch.

Watched some gameplay vids of Destiny last night because everyone I know who was in the beta was raving about it.
Looks pretty cool.
As for PS4 outsold the Xbone 3 to 1 well "deal with it" should have seen it coming.

Sony just needs to apply the PS4 strategy to all sectors of their company, i.e. being the lesser-asshat/inept option. Though admittedly when you're competitors are 'Deal with it' Microsoft and 'OMG Guys we stapled a gameboy to the control isn't that innovative' Nintendo, it's not too hard to do.

Disappointed about raiding, but like I told Blue, the days of me having 3+ hour blocks of gaming time are gone anyway. But there is a genuine problem of lack of communication (only being able to talk to people in your current group, in game), and (at least so far) Bungie expecting folks to work it out elsewhere (raid strategies, recruiting, gear questions, etc etc) before joining the game. I can't tell if they just didn't think that part out well or what...

Hopefully Strikes will fill the void, at least for me.
