Twitter data shows PS4 likely to outsell 2:1 XB1

According to a research conducted by LeadSift, the social conversations happening on Twitter show that PS4 is likely to outsell XB1 2:1.





For starters, tweets involving PlayStation 4 were almost double those of Xbox One. Even though just 3% of the conversations were negative, XB1 had double the number of negative mentions when compared to PS4. There’s also some interesting information on demographics: the graph says that people looking to buy XB1 or PS4 is two times less likely to be married when compared to customers of other consumer electronics, and apparently 650% more men talked about next gen consoles over women.

We’ll know soon enough if this data actually translates into reality, since PlayStation 4 is releasing in just four days in North America (Europe will have to wait the 29th), while Xbox One will release on 22th November. Which console are you buying, anyway?
