PS4 Smashes Xbox One With 70% Market Share Says Sony
Sony’s Jim Ryan has claimed that Sony is killing it in Europe with the PS4 having no less of 70% of the market share in any European country.
“We have a very significant market leadership,” Ryan told VG247.
“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,” he continued.
If you’re a PlayStation fan, that’s not necessarily all good news, because it means there’s a lack of incentive for Sony to cut its prices.
“Particularly in Europe… our momentum is still very considerable,” Ryan said. “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.”
We knew that the PS4 was doing well in Europe, but to hear that it’s enjoying such a large advantage, as much as 90%, is still surprising.
That means that the Xbox One and Wii U (lol) has got a lot of work to do catching up.
