Has it ever occurred to you that the PS4 is the best console for multiplatform triple-A releases? It has occurred to us and we are trying to figure out why this happened. Honestly now, the PS4 and the PS in general are rocking the market. Top graphics, all games are made for them with no exception, large communities, they are practically everything a gamer is looking for.
But ever since its release back in 2013, the PS4 has been dominant when it came to multiplatform titles and it is still number one today. The Xbox One literally doesn’t stand a chance and the way the gamer community purchased multiplatform games in the last years confirms that players simply pick PS4 over the Xbox One. But why is that?
A few years ago I would only go on a PlayStation only because it released the extra God of War, something that Xbox One could never have offered. But now the PS4 is doing better than its rival despite having a considerable lower number of exclusives. That’s right, you can head over to the Xbox side because they do have more cookies, but it still doesn’t explain why PS4 gets the better deals.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Batman: Arkham Knight are some of the many examples that have rocked the PS4 market compared to the Xbox One and a lot more are expected to come. So can we point the finger towards the PS4 and say that this is the best deal? We might as well do so because it is not only gamers who lean towards it, gaming companies are also tagging along.
Remember when Activision gave the Xbox owners a first sneaky download when it came to downloadable contents? Not anymore. PlayStation is Activision’s favorite now and game publishers, in general, have reached the conclusion that the PlayStation is going to be a favorite in the years to come, so they pile up on the PS side, despite having less cookies, but better income.
Our best bet is that PlayStation worked their way up by building a great relationship with their community and offering a lot for a steady price.
If you’re a console fan, you might remember about that price clash between PS4 and Xbox One when they were both revealed. That was an excruciating moment for Xbox. So the PS built up on that, slowly but surely, and now it is successful not only because of the product itself, but because people are simply recommending it and this might literally last for a generation.
