The PS4 Dominates Europe With 70-90% Market Share

 

According to Sony Entertainment Europe's President, Jim Ryan, the Company's PS4 console enjoys no less than 70% market share in any European nation, placing Microsoft's Xbox One at a great disadvantage. 

The PS4 is already known as being the generally stronger console in terms of pure GPU horsepower, which allows it to offer more games which run at a resolution of 1080p than Microsoft's Xbox One.  

Below is what Jim Ryan said in his interview to VG24/7:

 

“We have a very significant market leadership,” 

“Well, we have market leadership in every country in Europe, and have very significant market leadership in continental Europe. Extremely significant. I don’t think market-share’s any less than 70%, and frequently greater than 90% in continental Europe.”

Jim Ryan also stated that they are not considering a price decrease for the PS4 at this time, saying that the PS4 already offers a great value proposition. 

 

“Particularly in Europe… our momentum is still very considerable,”

“We’re happy with the price and we’re happy with the value proposition.

“Consumers, equally and more importantly, appear to he happy with the price and the value proposition. We’ll leave it where it is for now.”

 

Sony has a lot of great titles coming to the platform in the next year, including Star Wars Battlefront, Uncharted 4 and The Last Guardian, saying that a combination of exclusive IP and 3rd party deals, such as their recent DLC "timed" exclusivity deal with Call of Duty's publisher Activision, will leave the company in a stronger position by this time next year worldwide. 

Do you own any of the consoles? Do you think the PS4 is the best of all the current generation consoles?

Well 1080P 60FPS is easy when you have cartoon graphics or graphics that have been reduced

Plus Nintendo do make sure devs optimize games really well.Quote
