MarchNPD is gonna break NeoGaf. PS4 is still in stock at Amazon, and at least in my area, every single Gamestop had PS4s in stock, with none of them saying "Low Stock" yet.

Either demand has fallen of a cliff or Sony finally released the floodgates...

Well we don't know how much was allocated to Amazon in the latest shipment. If it's a small number there may be cause for concern, if it's large then we haven't really learned anything new.

Just came in stock on Amazon yesterday. 2nd restock this month. Each time it comes back in stock it is in for 3 or 4 days then disappears. Dunno about Gamestop but I thought they got stock day before. It definitely won't be another Wii, but I wouldn't say demand has fallen off a cliff.

March should be veeerrry interesting. Both consoles have big titles coming their way. MS with TF and Sony with SS and to a lesser extent MG. Has MS said anything about TF sales? Sony about SS preorders?

So what I find an interesting comparison

Code:
Platform: Jan Results -> Feb Results | Percentage Change MOM

PS4: 271K -> ~269K | [-.7%]
XB1: 141K -> 258K | [+83%]
3DS: ~97K -> ~151K - 156K | [+56% - +61%]
PS3: ~53.5K -> ~103K | [+92.5%]
Wii U: 49K -> 82.5K | [+68%]
360: ~48.5K -> 114K | [+135%]
Vita: <17K -> ~24K | [+41%]
Average Percentage Change MOM is +68% up from January, median is also +68% oddly enough

What in gods name happened in January? The numbers make it look like sales collapsed only for that month at this point. It's really odd.
From where are those numbers?

Which console is selling more by volume?

I mean, just because the numbers say the PS4 is selling more, that doesn't mean that the XBone can't be selling more, y'know what I mean?

Someone needs to calculate the cubic inches at play because I have a feeling that MS might be the real winners here.
nah
Xbox One is heavier, therefore the total mass of consoles sold is greater than PS4!


I don't know, it is heavier right

1.) Deals everywhere: Newegg free games with purchases that I kept posting, Target $50 gift card with purchase, etc

2.) People getting their tax return, PS4 is out of stock pick up an Xbox One instead. Compulsive shoppers.

3.) Gears of War Exclusive Announcement

4.) Plants VS Zombies was actually good

5.) The Titanfall beta was super hyped

Pick one?

Edit: Now fixed...

I think he's asking where they originated from, not how.

EDIT: Aha, you edit, I edit. We shall all edit.

You can use Kinect as a lethal weapon. Playstation Camera is too small to do real damage. Plus Kinect is included in so I guess this guarantees MS victory.

From where are those numbers?
We already have January numbers

We've basically officially gotten XB1, X360 and Wii U numbers

Aqua helped us get PS3 numbers which in turn allowed us to correct PS4 numbers

The great lord cream gave us Vita + 3DS numbers in a range

Cosmic Cheesiest granted us a look into Vita numbers which helped get 3DS numbers

I'm not 100% on handhelds though but they are fairly close I would imagine

Percentage stuff is me having #funwithnumbers

Sorry if this is off topic, but how can Sony continue to run the playstation the way they are? They're selling a lot of PS4's but correct me if I'm wrong, they aren't make a huge profit on the hardware and they give out swaths of free games each month across multiple platforms. From my end it looks like the Michael Scott Paper Company.

Also please don't read this negatively. I really want a PS4 someday.

The "free" games are financed through PlayStation Plus subscriptions. Sony sells the PS4 at a bit of a loss, but they make money on software. They receive royalties from every third party game sold.

Outside Katy Perry's house
Manabyte's twitter meltdown is a sight to behold. He says NPD's don't matter because it's US only, says that Amazon charts are all that matter, says that Gamestop's layaway program goosed X1 sales, and insists that Infamous will outsell Titanfall by a significant margin (it will be successful, but Titanfall will sell more, IMHO.)

Oh, and he firmly believes that MS will sell the Xbox division to Amazon any moment now.

He's making PS4 partisans look horrible, and that's an understatement.

But they give out multiple free games each month for the year with a $50 (price?) PS+ subscription. Some of the games they give away are $50 on their own. I don't see how that once a year payment can subsidize the cost of all that.
