How the FUCK do they get away with it?
Why are so many people buying PS4s?
Meanwhile W7 sold over 1 billion. Don't worry consoles, maybe you'll reach 10% of that someday.
Best console out of the three
Best price so you don't need to pay $2000 for a gayman PC only to be stuck with Minecraft, LoL and Dota 2 and Steam Early Access indie trash alphas that will never be finished anyway
Biggest audience out of the three 8th gen consoles
Best and most upcoming games across all genres
20 year life span so it won't get killed off by Sony like Nintendo did only 2 years after the Pii U launched
Unless you are a rabid fandrone who refuses to aknowledge all this, it really is THAT simple.
Also Sony always wins, baby!
>Because its the best gaming plattform.
Casuals and dudebros found that it's the best choice for playing Call of Duty this gen.
Now we're at the point where everyone is buying a PS4 because all their friends have one.
Japan will be buying PS4s once FF15 is out because that's where all the weeb games are.
Its pretty simple if you've been paying attention for the last 3 years.
>Microsoft completely botches the reveal of the Xbox One by focusing on TV and DRM
>Sony capitalizes on this by quietly dropping its own plans for PS4 DRM and advertising itself as 'Not the Xbox One' at E3 2013
>People flock to the PS4 in November of 2013. It was cheaper, better hardware and people hadn't associated it with 1984 like they had the Xbone.
>PS4 sells out everywhere. This attracts third parties and their game libraries. Sony further capitalizes on Xbone by expanding its '4 the Players' ad campaign
And it just snowballs from there. Better hardware and image means more sales, which means more third parties on-board, which means more games, which means more sales.
