The two don't come out in the same month.

I would be surprised if the XB1 doesn't outsell PS4 in August because Madden is the biggest release of the month and the bundle should help a fair bit.
I'll be shocked if it does. A next gen Madden is already out and while Microsoft will be advertising it, nothing is preventing Sony from marketing during NFL games.

Ha.

Xbox sold 123,929 systems in its opening week in Japan, and 472,992 lifetime sales.

Xbox 360 sold 62,135 systems in its opening week in Japan, and 1,614,619 lifetime sales.


...Xbox One isn't going anywhere in that region. :p
So the xbone in the opening week is going to be 31K and 6,400K lifetime .

When books stick asterisks in to make note of something, does your brain crumble trying to process it as anything but a multiplication sign?

Found some December ones for 8th gen sports sales as well

So with something like a 180k PS4 LTD lead in December, Madden sold between 350k and 400k on XB1, and between 300k and 400k on PS4

Now there will likely be a 750k PS4 LTD lead when Madden launches although a bundle in XB1's favor
So they are quite even. Interesting.

This thread probably won't even make half the post count of last months. It was kind of a slow month anyway, but it's still fun to have something to talk about.

I guess Cream has left us, no new posts in a while.
May be thinking up his next brainteaser for gaf to figure. lol

the edge on what? An exclusive game Titanfall bundle couldn't even beat PS4.
Madden standalone sales PS4 > Madden standalone sales Xbone
Madden standalone sales PS4 < Madden standalone sales Xbone + Madden bundled with Xbone

I believe that combined Madden on Xbone will sell more... the bundled copies will make the difference.

Yes it seems Madden did indeed sell better on XB1 relative to PS4 when taking install base into consideration but now that the gap has grown by more than half a million more it will be interesting to see the results

I'm still probably thinking it will go like this

Madden standalone sales PS4 > Madden standalone sales Xbone
Madden standalone sales PS4 < Madden standalone sales Xbone + Madden bundled with Xbone

I believe that combined Madden on Xbone will sell more... the bundled copies will make the difference.

That site died for our sins
Someone linked it to GAF and it got shut down.
The NPD Ninjas are a real thing. They were absolutely brutal last time around. Lightning-fast reflexes once the site started to spread across the Internet (with GAF as the spark)...

Getting Newegg's legal team in a whole bunch of trouble. You know...that kind of thing.
