Analysts from Leadsift expect sales of PS4 to outstrip those of XBox one by a ration of 2:1.
Leadsift came to this conclusion by using social media, in particular doing analysis off the tweets for what console users were planning on purchasing.
253K tweeted bout PS4, while 145K tweeted about XBox One, with 7K saying they were going to purchase a PS4, wile 4K stated they would buy a XBox One. In light of this XBox One received about 2X as many negative comments compared to PS4.
I guess this is a good test to see if social media analytics can actually result in useful predictions. Time will tell.
XBox on ships in 11 days (11/22/13) and PS4 ships a week later on 11/29/13.
What camp are you in? Or are not in either?
