Why does Xbox One continue to get first billing over PS4 - Tuesday, March 25, 2014 10:36 AM ( #1 )
I'm not sure if anyone notices but in articles involving both consoles, it's usually listed Xbox One and PS4. Why is it rarely the other way around? PS has been around longer as a brand, PS4 was announced first, released first, PS4 has better multiplats, more games, more sales, etc. Look at online stores like Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy. They all have Xbox brand listed first. Why is this? PS3 outsold 360 worldwide but you'd think 360 doubled PS3s sales or something with the way Xbox HAS to get first listing. The Xbox brand has never reached the heights the PS brand has. Why the constant second fiddling of PS?

Talk about worrying for nothing.
I mean, who cares? It's not like it changes anything

At the end of the day, does it really matter?

It matters more than you think. It makes the Xbox seem bigger and better. In a movie, the main star doesn't get listed 2nd they get listed first. It may seem petty for me to bring this up but it has more effect on consumers than you would think.

Not really though. I don't come here to read articles, or decide to buy consoles or games based on how they're "billed." I come here to find about Games that I wouldn't otherwise know about, same goes for reddit. If I follow a page on Fb that's true too. I do my own research on the game, or console I don't let articles pick it. Sales do not matter to me, unless they are about a franchise I care about. It's just silly to think that most people would choose an Xbox one over a PS4 on here, not that there's anything wrong with choosing any console, or PC. I just don't think it matters as much as you think it does.

I guess I'll be the first to give you an actual answer. Don't ask me why, but it probably started past gen, when the 360 launched a year before the PS3. Guess it just stuck.

Regardless, OP reeks of front page.

I hope you're ready for this explanation, you may need to learn the alphabet to comprehend what I am about to tell you.

XBOX = 'M'icrosoft

Playstation = 'S'ony

ABCDEFGHIJKL *M* NOPQR *S* TUVWXYZ

It's mind blowing that M appears before S in the alphabet, but I suspect this may be the answer you're looking for.

Can't tell if serious...

By that logic, doesn't it make more sense to use the console names and not the people who made them? That would put PlayStation in front of Xbox.

Xbox begins with an 'e', so it'll still be in front.

I've seen some bull**** said on N4G over the years but this takes the cake.

That's why the XBO is outselling the PS4...OH, WAIT.

I've never noticed it, I don't know if it's true of a lot of internet references and if it is it's possibly due to a lot of sites being American and Xbox being American.

And the PS4 might have got more attention in all other respects but Xbox One has got a bit more attention for its exclusives so far (i.e. Titanfall. The Order 1886 plus Infamous: second Son plus Killzone: Shadow Fall is the PS4's hype equivalent- the vocal love is spread more) and just for being 'controversial' in general.

In the long run it's unlikely to make any difference to their standing any more than putting Fish (the battered kind) before chips did. Chips will still sell more than battered fish.

It's not a movie though,  it's just one of those things.  Seeing the Xbox listed first doesn't detract from my gaming pleasure.  It's a hobby after all.  It's meant to bring you distraction and joy not irritation at the little things.

I noticed this a while ago as well.  It is a really small detail, nothing to get excited about.

It's mostly to do with 'politics', but I see why you might have wanted to ask the question. 

To the users who replied, but offered nothing, why bother replying 'it doesn't matter, who cares?', when it matters to Kakashi Hatake.

It's obvious, they are solely going off of the number at the end.  Xbox One is 1 and PS4... 4.  Wii U is a letter so it doesn't even make it in the news.
