Sony's PS4 hits 10 Million

Sony was more than happy this week to announce that they've sold 10 Million PS4 consoles so far as they continue to outpace the competing Xbox One from Microsoft. Microsoft hasn't released any numbers recently but it is being reported that the PS4 could be ouselling the Xbox One by a margin of 3-to-1 in the past few months. The best part of the whole deal is that the fierce competition is great for consumers as we've already seen a price drop from Microsoft and chances are good that Sony will have to follow suit eventually which I doubt any will complain when they have to spend less money. The WSJ has the story.

 Sony Corp. said Tuesday it has sold 10 million PlayStation 4 videogame consoles to consumers, as the Japanese consumer electronics company continues to outpace Microsoft Corp. in the new console sales war.

The PlayStation 4's dominance over Microsoft's rival Xbox One console has been a hot topic in the videogames industry, which is gathering in large numbers in Cologne this week for the annual Gamescom conference.

Cortana Trash Talks Android

I love my Android phone and I also love the way Cortana trash talks Android. Microsoft is building a lot of character into their personal assistant. Just be careful what you ask her as this AI has survived the Covenant invasion and a lot more.

Amazon Fire Phone Flop

The Amazon Fire Phone never struck me as a device that would sell well and it appears that I'd am right. There really isn't room for a new device from a company that is offering a somewhat proprietary OS and this proves it. Data suggests that no more than 35,000 Fire Phones have been sold and this isn't surprising to me, but I think Amazon figured it would do better than that. Of course Firefox OS, Ubuntu Phone and others have flopped and the Fire Phone won't be any different.

Amazon famously never gives sales figures for any of the devices it sells, preferring to let its financial results do the talking. Analysts can make estimates of how many devices have been sold, based on their information from sales channels and any guidance the company might give. But it’s not as definitive as, say, the smartphone sales that Apple or BlackBerry include in their financial figures.
