Are you basing that on weak PS4 shipments, or strong XB1 sales? Just curious.

Shipments.

Asia is getting 500k for their launch this week. They will sell out there. They would also sell out here. Sony clearly is going for the jugular in the rest of the world and it seems clear to me that MS cares about the US and UK and that's about it. Because they want to sell services and people will buy NFL in the US... they won't in Taiwan.

K is shadow fall.

Knack didn't break 100k (at retail...). Is selling better than internal expectations.

Ps4 was about 200k over xb1. Barely moved 100k the rest of the month after launch. Sacrificing huge NA lead for huge WW lead. Xb1 will win December in NA.

Vita over 2 mil in US and Sony has absolutely no plans on abandoning it. The numbers are fucking awful though. Expect a price drop with the new model before spring. Vita tv will make it here as well, possibly through online vendors only. Working all that out.

232k for wii u. It needs to find a cheap niche... I think hd remakes is the way to go - cheap to make, don't need large install base to turn profit.


Nothing is dead yet. Hyperbole explosion. This is neogaf forum dot gif file extension.
Not sure if sacrificing a North American lead is a good idea... they have Europe pretty well covered so they should really be focusing on North America.

Makes sense for Sony to not release numbers if its barely moved anything since launch because they haven't supplied anything. Would create the false impression that theres no demand rather than the fact that there is no supply.

It's a totally unsupported game on the Wii U. Honestly, they shouldn't have even bothered. The number of players online has dropped down to an abysmal 300-700. It was once in the 2k or more range, but so many people have bailed. This is what you get when you treat the game and the players like ass. Well deserved, in my opinion.
To be far, they've been supporting it with constant patches. 2 news ones came out within last week.

I've been playing regularly, and yeah, it's now down to 600k to 1.25k. Quite a difference from those 1.5k+ to 2.5k.

Wonder what we can extrapolate from this. NBA was the only title out at the same time, numbers are closer, relative to install base.

I think Activision should have done a quickie Vita port. It did OK numbers last year. Give it to a crappy outsourcing studio like nhilistic and let them do it.

LOL I said Insomniac but it really was a freudian slip. Meant Nihilistic.
Yes, I don't understand why the Vita didn't get another version after last years CoD sold rather well. I mean even the Wii U got a version. Of course a Wii U port is relatively easy done and probably not possible on the Vita. The game already runs relatively bad on current gen platforms and it was rumored that Vicarious Visions failed horribly porting the engine.
But a Vita CoD would have probably sold well. Instead, Activisions does a late port of The Amazing Spiderman. That doesn't make any sense.

Goddamn, those are pretty sizable leads. I'm ignoring NFS though, no one bought that over Forza on XB1.

Also, LOL @ the "Official console of the NFL" selling less copies of Madden.

Why in the world would they stop focusing on NA when they're clearly winning in nearly every other country? So confused

Seems like Sony is making a big mistake with conceding NA for bigger numbers WW. There's no need for that, they should be stacking the US and UK, the true battlegrounds for new gen.

I want Vita to do well. I don't care for Vita TV at all, though. So conflicted.

Seriously doubt this, the shipment our store received this month between consoles is heavily lopsided in favor of PS4.
This is the on the spot narrative I'm getting from people who actually work the stores in retail, the bigwigs will spin anything for the right price.

Is that because of constrained PS4 NA supply, or demand being less?

Forza 5 giving competition might explain why NFS is so loopsided, but man, these are looking like 360/PS3 SW ratios, only reversed.

Oh sh*t. Sony really is bringing the inferior LCD model to the US? If it increases sales, I guess that's a good thing. I wonder if the OLED model will be completely phased out...

RING THE ALARM!

Squandering their lead in US is a huge mistake. There are no guarantees they can gain it back. The bone is much much healthier than anyone gave it credit.

It's very likely that interest for COD is higher on XB1 than PS4, so using that game (or any game, honestly) will probably not provide as good as an estimate as you'd expect.

Of that is the case, where are the first party games in development? Outside of quick ports of older indie games the platform seems abandoned.
Well yeah, it's not going to be the fucking ps4 with games coming out like crazy. But when people say it's dying that means they will stop producing it or any games for it. There are no plans to stop doing either. When there are I'll let you guys know. All I'm saying is that as of now Sony hasn't walked away from it like Sega did with the dreamcast or nintendo did with the virtual boy.

But is it going to have 1/5th the big titles of the 3ds in '14? Of course not.
