Well both consoles should be seeing 'slim' revisions using 14nm, so that should shave quite a bit of cost on both of them, as well as making the PS4K possible at a price point around what the PS4's original cost was, now that we know what kind of performance its aiming for.
Not a chance the bundle will see THAT much... at first, PS4 is most likely gonna sell < 200K in April.
Or if will be over 200K, can't be by much. Just barely.
May is the Uncharted month so should easy sell better than in April, but even so, 300K in May remain a hard result. For a comparation, not even the 360 in 2011 sold 300K in May, and it was selling usually something close to 400-500K or so in a month.
But even if sells 300K or over in May, 200K for the bundle mean 66% of total PS4 sales that month... no way.
This is not an accessible bundle, is just like the Halo 5 bundle a limited version of the PS4.
You can already see that the demand is not that high since was out of TOP 100 in Amazon monthly March. For a comparation, Halo bundle was #24 in August, and that bundle sold only 93,000.
So, well, i believe 100K is ABSOLUTELY the maximim, most likely well under that.
If Sony maked a COD / Star Wars style bundle for $350, then 200K was possible.
Sony and Insomniac make a triumphant return with a first outing on PS4 for ‘Ratchet & Clank’, the first in the series to debut at No1.
The game debuts just a few days before the movie (UK release date is 29th April). The game series began back in week 45, 2002 on PS2 with ‘Ratchet and Clank’ having held the previous best week 1 for All Formats chart postion (No15). In terms of week 1 sales units the record was held by 2009’s PS3 ‘Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time’, but the current release beats this by a factor of 3. Bandai Namco’s ‘Dark Souls III’ drops to No2 after 1 week at the top (-80%) and EA climb 9 places to No3 with ‘Star Wars Battlefront’ (+177%) – of course this is also the week where ‘Star Wars The Force Awakens’ arrived on DVD/Blu-ray.
Three other new releases make the Top 40 this week. The second is Nintendo’s WiiU Not bat at all.
What on earth are you talking about? Why would anyone use MS PR as credible fact? Do you really buy into their spins or something? If we were to rely on the spins, Halo 5 is the biggest game in the franchise, revenue wise, but we all know that was bullshit spins.
PlayStation 4 exclusive Ratchet & Clank has topped the UK all-format charts - and has become the first game in Sony's long-running series to do so.
But Nintendo's Wii U exclusive Star Fox Zero fared less well - it only made the chart's sixth place.
To put the new Ratchet & Clank's success into perspective, it now has the highest UK launch sales of the series by some margin. It has tripled the release week total of the franchise's previous best release week, for Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time on PS3.
Dark Souls 3 fell from first to second this week, ahead of a resurgent Star Wars: Battlefront, which moved up from 12th to 3rd - helped by the launch of The Force Awakens' on DVD and Blu-ray.
Well, for a while it seemed like maybe R&C wouldn't do so well (franchise fatigue, most recent entries being poorly received, people thinking its budget price = lack of confidence from Sony), but fortunately, that's not looking like the case at all.
