The question, though, is how much? Getting the price point right on both will be key. If they fuck that up it'll only hurt one or the other--possibly both.
I'm going to go 900k retail, 200k Bundle,
Hey, an interesting data for games company, looks like Ubisoft increased it's sales by a freaking +219%... that's a lot.
They had 2 massive releases last quarter compared to the 0 last year.
And yeah, I'd be surprised if the PS4 did anything much more than 200k in May. That bundle isn't going to be moving a lot in a slow month like May.
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.
You can't lure in somebody by flaunting how confident you are. You gotta reel 'em in by saying something outlandish that you're secretly confident of.Ah, damn it, I hope someone else would take up the bet. I'm quite confident I will win this one.
Yeah I forgot it was a $399 bundle with custom PS4 instead of a $349 one, and it's visibly not tearing up the charts currently.Why do you expect UC4 bundle to sell a lot? May is slow month for consoles sales and the bundle is +50$ more expensive than the base SKU. I doubt it will even sell 100K.
Yeah, that's another one. In fact, I do think QB will sell less than TO1886. However, I'm not sure enough to bet on that and I don't want a horrible avatar.You can't lure in somebody by flaunting how confident you are. You gotta reel 'em in by saying something outlandish that you're secretly confident of.
For example: Quantum Break will do less than The Order 1886.

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.Two things to consider, will the bet be by NPD numbers, or "official" numbers by MS PR (or spokespersons). In other words, how bundled is QB?
In extension, I wonder if MS PR and spokespersons will count Windows 10 sales, including any codes redeemed from the Xbox One pre-orders.
Good grief, man, keep that away from me.
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.
Also, one of our insider said in the other thread that NA sales are comparable.I know this is the UK, but it seems to be translating a similar trend here as well...
Oh, I was just saying I don't see it selling above 250K. Just a feeling in order to avoid disappointment from inflated expectations.Because of?
Can't imagine they did an initial production run of 200k for the US physical market for a 1st party title, and the thing seems to have sold out of launch run units.
Why wouldn't R&C well more than QB?
