PS4 will beat next Xbox, says Paddy Power

Bookies Paddy Power is taking bets on who will win the next generation console war – PS4 or the next Xbox

The firm believes Sony's console will win, putting them at 8/13 to sell more than Microsoft (they're on 6/5).

It's one of Paddy Power's novelty bets, and as we know little about the next Xbox, it's all a bit of a guess. This is the bookmaker that had Far Cry 3 as 66/1 to be Christmas No.1. The game made No.2. If only Ubisoft had sold a few more units, I'd have been minted.

The company is also taking bets on which of the consoles will be the most powerful. Again, Sony has been given the edge at 2/5, with the next Xbox at 7/4.

Paddy Power's spokesperson said: The PlayStation 4 has received plenty of well worn thumbs up from gamers but while Sony currently have the edge it's still all to play for in the console wars.”
