Don’t Expect Bundled Games for the PS4–For Now Another thing that Sony fans should not expect for the meantime are game bundles for the PS4. Considering that the release dates for the PS4 and the Xbox One are already near , the supposed typical course of action is to take the remaining days leading to the release to gather more pre-orders, but it seems that Sony does not feel the need to resort to its competition’s style. “Platform holders and publishers run pre-order campaigns, and if you need to increase momentum then they dial it up a little bit with some promotional stuff, it’s a rational thing to do. But do we need to do that? No,” said Jim Ryan, SCEE president in an interview quoted by Gamerant . However, this move is mostly for the official bundles offered by Sony. Other retailers have long been offering game bundles with Sony’s next-gen console. From AAA games like “Battlefield 4” and “Watch Dogs” to PS4 exclusives like “Knack and DriveClub,” these games are offered as a pack with the PS4 and sometimes with the PS Plus membership pack. PS4 Trumps the Xbox One in Power and Speed With less than 2 months on the clock before the PS4 and the Xbox One will be released, there is now new development regarding the hardware for Sony –and it is one that can be troubling for the nitpicky few who had opted for the Xbox One. The latest developments come from Joystiq , which reports that not only is the PS4 more superior in terms of power and speed but also in terms of frame rates.

PS4 to outsell Xbox One by 2018, predicts analyst
They continue to note that they forecast the PS4 will sell 36 million consoles worldwide by 2018. Meanwhile, Microsoft s Xbox One will sell approximately 30 million consoles in the same time period. For reference, the PS3 has sold in the area of 79 million units worldwide. In the meantime, the Xbox 360 is between 78-79 million units worldwide. The company further explains their projections and notes that, We expect the Xbox One to sell well in the USA due to existing customer loyalty, repositioning as an integrated multimedia home hub will open up further market opportunities, though it is launching into a crowded marketplace, so gaining a strong foothold in this category will be challenging. The PS4 is likely to maintain its strong lead in its core territories of Japan and continental Europe. Due to its lower price point and positive PR within the gaming community, the PS4 will also reduce Xboxs lead in the key Microsoft territories of the USA and UK when compared with previous generations. Due to the increased availability of high-quality alternative gaming platforms such as mobile devices, as well as expected propositions from tech powerhouses Apple and Google, we expect the installed bases of the Xbox One and PS4 to be 20 per cent lower than those of the previous generation after five years on the market.
