Yeah, at this point he should be banned. It seems the train went off the rails...
...Stil, not buying the 1.2 millions number just for US...again, it's such a huge first November that MS would've been absolutely proud to state it in their PR. Heck, is the PR posted on Xbox Wire now? I read it wasn't, earlier.
Amir0x said:I also want to note we should be careful about just accepting the 7-10k number at face value. Aqua and creamsugar haven't commented to my knowledge, and cboat has been tricked by sources before.
We could be talking about a much bigger gap for all we know quite yet.
Hello! Second post in this thread, I think I missed some other questions way back, but, eh...
As to your inquiry, our stores saw a *lot* of PS4 inventory. Our local Sony/PS rep was in my home store talking with management about shifting extra stock. We restocked the floor pallets/piles repeatedly.
The XB1s we had (the bundles anyway) were selling out very quickly... But that also has *some* to do with MS not really sending us aggressive inventory through the month. I think we saw 1-2 major shipments (which weren't small, mind you), but they weren't on the same level.
So the XB1 'velocity' was higher, they'd sell really fast from the aggressive thing, more people piling in at the urgency points, but the PS4s were just constantly selling at really, really solid numbers. Just chipping away at that sales lead with a relentless momentum.
AC Unity and the MCC issues really didn't help, either. A few of our stores were outright accepting *returns* of MCC because of the faulty launches. Normally, we don't accept any opened software returns except as an exchange for the same game. We were giving store credit in most cases, but, yeah. Some seriously upset Halo fans were seen. Bundling the PS4 with 2 games that received near universal acclaim and especially GTA V continuing to sell gangbusters...
Anyway, that's why I couldn't make a clear call for either system last month. Clear differences in the mindset approaching how to sell this month... If MS hadn't basically eviscerated their own bottom line, there wouldn't have been any contest.
This makes no sense... Sony has been executing their plan to perfection and this changes nothing.... Games are being made.As a proud owner of solely a PS4, I am very happy at this news. This should put fire under Shu's ass, which can only mean good things for PS4 games and the industry in general.
Well, Sony really needs to cut the PS4 price now. They're getting their asses kicked in December too. This really is the start of a new trend.
