Forums - Sales Discussion - September 2016 NPD Thread! XBO #1; PS4 Slim flops

How did the wiiu do? Does it stand a chance to keep up the 5 digit mark?



Nothing to worry about - Amazon had the PS4Pro as the highest selling system in September but will only release in November.

Assuming Microsoft considers the Wii U an 8th gen console, it sold less than 88k.



I would not use the term flop. PS4 slim had 3 weeks of sales while the XB1 had a full 5 weeks of post launch sales. And it sounds like both systems were close.



Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287

354k > PS4 (down YoY)
XB1 > 293k (up YoY)

^ where are those numbers from?

 

Also does this make it the first time since gen started that Amazon was wrong? I believe september showed PS4 winning on amazon.

That is hard to answer. I believe the xbox one was ahead for about the first part of the month. Plus it went REALLY ahead when it had that CE sell.  I don't know if them being cancelled (because they weren't actually giving away the recore CE) counted or not. I assume not?

While the Playstation seemed ahead at the time, xbox had an actual amount of time I believe. So I'd call it a coin flip.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

I figured that XBO would beat PS4. October is probably in the bag too thanks to Gears 4 as well.

Keep in mind the PS4 also had a price-cut. On even footing, Microsoft usually is way behind. 



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Yeah, I was thinking about adding that when I first wrote that comment :p



Just a question for all North Americans (and people who watch North American TV a lot): has Sony marketed the new PS4 model and price cut a lot? Here in The Netherlands I haven't seen shit on TV or other places you could expect ads. The last time I've seen a PS4 ad must have been in May around Uncharted 4's release.
