People, there are far more pressing matters at hand here. Against all odds and despite being stocked in only two retailers (both in Arkansas), it seems the Vita has seen some growth! Growth!

It's giving me a growth, I'll tell you that for nowt.


Killer soundtrack, ain't it. I remember the first time I fired up the 25th anniversary and heard it in crystal clear surround. Life changing.
Wait, so you're telling me that despite SCEA's best efforts, Vita just won't die? Rejoice brethren!

Edit: Unlike veritassin's account. Lol.

Eh why? I'm not the one calling people assholes.
When a mod gives you a heads up, he's doing you a favor. When he does it for a junior, that's a lifeline. When the rest of the forum is trying to keep your account from getting nuked despite your behavior, that's when you say, "You know, I was being a bit rude back there. Sorry guys, thanks for looking out for me like that."

And then you move on to another thread for a bit.

On topic: Is anyone surprised by this? I'd say Sony's position is looking pretty strong until November at the earliest.

Never ever use chartz for anything, ever

Just don't

They still have the PS4 at 9.3M WW after a clear 10M announcement several days ago
Oh yeah I know they are beyond terrible they just usually fix the numbers at some point for the past month.

On a positive for Vita my Target actually got in Call of Duty bundles as weird as that is. We'll see if they sell.

Yes :D

She said I can get a few more tomorrow. She just got a good deal with the others.

edit: Yes, we know Epic Mickey 2 isn't "epic". It was free.
That's an awesome birthday gift! You might just have a keeper.

My best friend and I are big Lakers fans, and a few years ago we kept talking about how cool it would be to go see a game together. Lo and behold, his wife one day walks into the room while we where playing NBA2K11 with two tickets to a Lakers game - on my birthday! It's like it was destiny.

Of course the Lakers lost by double digits and my best friend ended up getting a divorce, so now that I think about it maybe she didn't even pay with cash but sold her soul to the devil for the tickets...

Worth it!

Damn Titanfall dissapearing from chart.

Biggest flop since Haze?
Not even close. I would have to look back on it, but I think it did a million alone in Its first month in NPD alone. If my friends list is any indication, it is still by far the most popular game on Xbox One. Haze was a disaster. Titanfall has done well for itself considering the small userbase of the XBox One.

In other news; is it just me or is Sony grabbing more and more mindshare. What can stop that momentum?

MS still have PR issues and end of they day I struggle to see what will make them stand out.

Going into this year I expected MS to shine on the exclusive front ; but it's Sony even with simple remasters who seem to be riding front.
Kinect Sport was the only retail exclusive they released this year so far though and TLOU was the only remaster.

I imagine you smiling just like your profile pic right now.
My missus thinks I've had a stroke. I'm not certain she's wrong.

Oh by the way Dave what did you want me to do with that truck full of stuff you had me pick up in Arkansas anyways?
Oh for fucks sake. I knew I should've given the job to someone a little more discreet. Put it on the boat as instructed. If anyone asks, they're turtles bound for the Galápagos Islands.

Has anybody figured out this months Wii U number yet from Nintendo's PR statement? You can calculate it if you have the Wii U sales from Jan-July 2013 and Jan-June 2014.

Did he really compare Titanfall to Haze? It sold over 2 Million units.

Great sales all around. Hopefully this will translate into more games being released in the Summer months rather than forcing everything into the 4th quarter.

Wow your story just kind of changes drastically fast

Glad you enjoyed the game?

I've never understood why in the world even months like January right after Christmas seem to get more releases than the summer months when kids are out of school. I suppose that kids have more to do in the summer, but the summer droughts always seemed like a bad idea.

Huh. There must have been excess stock of it or something. I can't remember, did those have normal Vitas or the 3G ones. I still have yet to sign up for my 3G even after 2 years. Oh, well. Nice option to have, considering it's month to month and not a contract.

I found both 2 and 3 to be the very definition of mediocre. Once the "cool" sniper shot novelty wears off you're stuck with another boring console shooter.

But I didn't mean it as a complete dig to the Sniper team, I mean the worst Killzone game (and that's saying A LOT) sold over 2 mil in several months on PS4. Basically devs and pubs need to wake the fuck up and start releasing games. They sell!



Forgot about Thief LOL. Yea, if I needed anymore proof for my argument there it is. Thief isn't mediocre, it's flat out bad.
I can understand the criticism for 2 as the level design was really narrow but 3 had fairly open levels and objectives and had decent stealth mechanics. Different strokes I guess. :)

Minecraft is so stronk O___O

What can slow down that train? Nuthin'

Also as expect TLOU Remastered is #1, and good 'ol MK8 staying strong. Nintendo needs it more than ever to keep momentum going into the Fall.

Depends on perspective. As a new IP, it get a sequel and developer got the fund to expand, is a big win.
But the actual performance does not match the size of marketing arm behind it.

I think we all saw that coming.
You gotta be a special breed of person to get me to defend a Wii U purchase.

Anywho, moving on.

Is it about time we stop pretending Amazon rankings dont give us some kind of insight of how the month has played out? No they don't give the true story, but except for December, the ratio of XB1/PS4 sales have been close to or reflected the NPD numbers.

I would love for that to happen.

It won't, unfortunately. Besides dates like Black Friday and some holidays, why are so many games in the last quarter of the year? Is there any study or something like that?

Negative, since it didn't really flop.

I would say it was the worst hyped game since Haze though. ACM might have been, but it got nowhere near the hyperbolic marketing / hype Titanfall did from EA, MS, and journalists eager to feed the BS machine.

This thread definitely got a little weird for a while. Any time you have someone insulting someone else's birthday presents and comparing Titanfall to Haze, it's time to take a step back.

Can't say I'll miss that dude.


What's this I hear about growth for the Vita? The fact that thing is still alive just shows that it could have been something if Sony had known what to do with it.

Disregarding the last statement comparing it to Haze (wow), titanfall has undoubtedly sold very well (especially when you consider the XB1 user base).

No numbers, because EA has been coy, but only Mario Kart on WiiU (which we know sold very well) and GTAV on XB360 have sold better than Titanfall (XB1) on amazon so far this year: http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/2014/videogames

Of course Amazon sales charts don't tell us anything difinitively, but I think it'd be silly to suggest it was a flop.

PS4/VITA and X1 version aren't that far off.

Minecraft will easily stay in the charts for some time.

Well, i know i go too far comparing it with haze (it was the first big flop that came to my mind) but my point is that titanfall was hyped over the roof and get a really really agressive marketing by MS and EA, and still didnt give the push to the xbox one at the level of hype the media tried to sell to us.

It's a great game, but i think the push to the console proportional to the moneyhat MS payed is not even close.
