Analysts: Xbox One will lose on the European market


Xbox One lose PlayStation 4, at least in the European market, and the main reasons for that will be a big difference in the price of the console in the West and in Europe, as well as the fact that the majority of TV and entertainment features that Microsoft has added to its next-generation console, simply will not work on the old continent. In this, some analysts believe.

Last week, when an exhibition game E3 Microsoft and Sony showed their new consoles, the two companies identified amounts that we have to pay to get to the next generation of gaming. Cost of Xbox One will be 499 dollars / euros , and PlayStation 4 will be sold at $ 100 below – for 399 dollars / euros.

As part of the announcement of Sony, it became clear that the company will not result in any stringent requirements for b / the games and have an Internet connection. Prospective buyers of this just would not understand. However, realizing this, the same Microsoft took some time after the announcement. This week the company announced that it removes all the restrictions and demands of daily checks online connection.

Piers Harding-Rolls of analytical agency IHS Screen Digest believes that this decision was critically needed if Microsoft had hoped to have any chance against the PS4.

“We believe that the stumbling block will be the price, which at the moment, we expect to be somewhat lower expected sales of Xbox One in continental Europe, where the difference will be 100 euros,” – shared Pierce gaming portal Edge.

“After the negative reviews of the shaft with respect to the selected company policy, Microsoft had to take active measures. And now the buyers will choose between PS4 and Xbox One based on a comparison of their features, prices, and that the content that they will provide, and not on the basis of what the limitations of each of the consoles have. ”

According to the analyst, the existing user base, their loyalty, and other factors that characterize the two companies, will also play a big role in the next war the new generation consoles.

“Those people who already use Xbox Live and PSN will most likely not change their habits after the launch consoles on the market. But if you omit this aspect and look at both consoles from another angle, it will be clear on what each one does accent. In the case of Xbox One, with all of its functions television broadcasting, it is clear that the console is rather aimed at the American market and American consumers. In the case of PlayStation 4, the console offers ample opportunities available at strimingovyh technology. ”

Given the fact that Europe has always treated warmer it to the consoles from Sony, very interested to know what’s going to happen when the two consoles will be available in November this year.
