I have noticed some patterned behavior. I typically refrain from posting because I have a hard time with the sales verbiage and number. Nonetheless I find these threads invaluable and informative.
Yeah it's weird how there has been a rise in new users. I've been a bit wary recently since some banned members from the past have admitted to me they have alternate accounts. Why can't people understand they have been banned for a reason!

But yeh, good to hear you find these threads useful. You can post more haha, even I dont understand everything, these discussions help me learn more as well.

Anyway, what are people expecting from PS4 sales this quarter and overall segment / Sony performance? Only a few hours till the release noW.

Going by Japanese and US sales pretty similar to last year (?). Of course demand could have slowed in other parts of the world. Then there is of course that last year if I remember right PS4 had still some major shortages in Europe during Q4 so they might have shipped some extra units Q1 to fix supply levels. This would mean that despite having similar sales to last year numbers could see still a drop. Gonna go with 2.3 million (2.7 million last year).

The 9.13m number comes from CESA.

It adds up with Sega's reported numbers.
It adds up so well I think we have to conclude that Sega's reports are the source for the CESA white paper. My point was, those reports were a combination of consolidated and non-consolidated shipments. There's no accounting for possible excess production shipments.

The 9.13m number is the best we have, and no less reliable than any of the other sales figures that get used. But it purports to be more precise than many others, which I think there's good reason to question.
 
Fall out 3 shipped 4.7 million units in 2008 and conservative estimates put Battlefront at shipping 9 to 10 million. I think Fallout will do great, but double Fallout 3? Not likely, especially the same year Star wars episode VII launches.
Skyrim sold more than any Star Wars game. Maybe Battlefront does better for the season with the movie coming out, but I think Fallout 4 is going to continue to sell for a good while after release.

You be surprised people still use it as legitimate source of info.
heh I was reading the other day (IGN comments) and someone quoted Chartz saying Halo 5 has the most pre-orders of any game this year at 300k.

Numbers out of their ass or plausible educated guesses? The pre-order part of the industry is mystery to me in terms of numbers.

Probably the same 2 or 3 people every month.
Lol...perhaps true. For those wondering the "why do it?".....turfing is a paid job - that's the "why".

Sounds about right. Think it could be flat too if Sony felt like doing some channel stuffing.

Red Mod attacked and destroyed Users Shill.

User drawers 1 Jar of Greed, then draws a Monster Reborn.

"When 1 Shill is destroyed in Battle Phase and it is revived, you can special summon 2 Juniors in defense mode"

Repeat until user is out of cards.

They are literally guesses.

It's convenient for those who's primary agenda is moving goal posts.

So at least it's useful for those type of people.
Didn't someone fairly major like Entertainment Weekly once quote Chartz in an article? It's not just about people trying to win forum debates. NPD being so secretive meaning that if you were to try to use Google to figure out a games sales after the first month or two, I wouldn't be surprised if the Chartz results are one of the first results.

Look up "video game sales" and chartz is the first link.

Pfffffff. These clowns getting banned every month are so bad at pushing their agendas none of us know what the agenda they're pushing actually is. These aren't professional PR people. Get real.
At $10 an hour at most you're not getting professional PR but that's my guess. They just need to push some FUD and talk up the brand.

Disappointed I missed out on all the fun this month. Thread seems to have died down for the most part now.

One question I had though: did we ever sort out the Arkham Knight sales figures? If I recall one trusted source stated it was ">1.1million" but the NPD release stated it sold better than Arkham City which sold 1.5 million. What was the cause for the discrepancy here? Which number is accurate?

Hey Rex is back!

Was it a two week ban or a month? I can't remember xD

Time flies so fast, was a month I see.
