Yes I'm happy DC sold 46k. I'm guessing many of those copies were returned as well. Evo/Sony deserved to have that game sell 0 copies.
And yet again this shite. DC was mostly sold digitally because of the PS+ digital discount and the bundle. I'm surprised people bought so many retail copies, I guess they were special editions.

DC was fifth on PSN digital sales last month. Even Rushy said it sold more than they expected.

Perhaps, but Group 2 is also so small as to be nearly meaningless, I suspect.

Also, I'm not even sure your basic assumption is a given. If you already have a PS4, I'd argue the Wii U is a far superior compliment to it than an XBone; Wii U is substantially cheaper than XBone, and for a PS4 owner it offers a far more diverse game selection than an XBone would. Why by a second box just to play the same games except with worse graphics? Get a Wii and play something different, at least.
And there's no additional online fee on top of PS+ on the Wii U.

One of the worse console warriors on the site. interesting how notably absent his input has been in the MCC and AC:Unity threads.

Glad to have put him on ignore a long time ago.
Ummm... why exactly should Jomjom have higher standards for Microsoft than he does for Sony? Sony needs this more, but their output doesn't reflect the severity of that need. Everything Sony has done up to this point is ride the coattails of the third parties.

Well, if Sony wants to ride the third parties that hard, they should just close a vast majority of their studios and use the consequent savings to bolster a temporary price drop; it seems that's the only way they'd be willing to afford it.

Most of the XB1 exclusives have come from 3rd parties; Ryse, DR3, PVZ:GW, TF, SO.

/nod So we're all agreed then? Nintendo deserve a solid 2nd-place finish this gen?

EDIT:


The PS+ upgrade for DC cost 40€, and from what I've heard the online portion works well now, outside of challenges. I have no personal experience on the matter though, as I don't race online.

e.
Single player content worked 100% from day one. Online stuff works 95% now, except for challenges. Pretty good work for an AA sized team. Most of the hate BTW, comes from people who haven't played the game and just like bitching. The same goes for ACU.

Wait, is this list for November NPD? What could have possibly beaten COD:AW this month? And a Borderlands which is not BL3 coming in fifth place for the month?

Forget the game title riddles ... I'm not even sure what the numbers are supposed to mean. Maybe this?

so much fucking better than "gee whiz, where are we going" equivalent — 1.11 million sold in October / 20% of ... total LTD?
not gta v, much to kotick's dismay — 300,000 sold on one platform / 420,000 sold on another platform / 3 million sold on a third platform / 3.4 million sold on a fourth platform
boring-ass, no innovation, and absurdly popular for no reason across the world — 65,000 more sold versus last year's iteration?
boring-ass, no innovation, where people run into each other for fun — 47,000 more sold versus last year's iteration?
should have been on ps4 but isn't for no goddamn reason — 79,000 sold in October / 1.4 million LTD
nintendo was a dumbass for not signing any exclusive deals for it — 12,000 sold in October / 260,000 LTD


Any guidance, Aqua?

Nah nvm. Last gen is far too low. Ytd possibly?
If you're talking Destiny it would still require 2 million sold this month :p

Adding them up (1 is console x, 2 is x+y, 3 is z+y+z etc...) and using / for division also doesn't make sense unless console 3 sold way better than anything else or total sales where horrid.

+65 means one thing (same thing as +47 or -79 or -12)
1.11 means another thing (same thing as 0.3 or 0.42 or 0.26)
3.0 means another thing (same thing as 3.4)
1.4 means another thing
20% tr means another thing


i'm not the goddess of sales numbers so i don't have access to anything that's not reported through npd or gfk or famitsu.

look at what i've historically liked to post about at the *end* of npd sales threads. if you remember, you can see what kind of thing the numbers are describing and work it out from there.



Aqua... you're having too much fun with this aren't you.

My attempt:

so much fucking better than "gee whiz, where are we going" equivalent 1.11/20% tr - NBA 2K15: sold 1.1m, 20% of total revenue

not gta v, much to kotick's dismay .3/.42/3.0/3.4 - Destiny: sold 300k without bundles, 420k with bundles. LTD 3m without bundles, 3.4m with bundles.

boring-ass, no innovation, and absurdly popular for no reason across the world +65 - FIFA 15: sold 65k more than last year iteration.

boring-ass, no innovation, where people run into each other for fun +47 - Madden NFL 15: sold 47k more than last year iteration.

should have been on ps4 but isn't for no goddamn reason -79/1.4 - This is Titanfall isn't? I don't know why the first number is negative but ltd 1.4m

nintendo was a dumbass for not signing any exclusive deals for it — Skylanders Trap Team: sold 12k more than last year iteration, 260k ltd.

These sound right to me.

So, if we're assuming the Destiny bundle sold 120k in October, I'd be interested in the actual PS4 and XB3 numbers for the month. Can someone hook me up with a PM? <3

boring-ass, no innovation, and absurdly popular for no reason across the world +65 - FIFA 15: sold 65k more than last year iteration.

boring-ass, no innovation, where people run into each other for fun +47 - Madden NFL 15: sold 47k more than last year iteration.

The -79 number is in the same category as +65 and +47, so maybe they're percentages?

I don't think Titanfall was particularly relevant in October though…

if +65 and +47 is "thousands more than last years" -79 could be less than last years, but then it couldn't be Titanfall.

And if it's percentage, what two games could've gone up 65% and 47% from last month? does that ever happen for newer games?

no, but it does happen for games that launched on ps3 + 360 last year, and launched on ps4 + xb1 + ps3 + 360 this year.

I have a feeling this is Sunset Overdrive.
Insomniac were developing for PS before, hence the remark, and 1.4 million units worldwide could be realistic, huh?

Nope again, the relative negative number wouldn't make any sense then.

What about WWE 2K15?
