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.

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

Shortly after the Slim reveal they price was cut by $50 for the CoD bundle to $299 and not long after than and still currently on sale is the Uncharted 4 LE console at $279, Xbox One had the week of free game sale as well.  There has actually been some good offers and price cuts and good incentive to buy a console in September and even with the Pro taking some sales away for pre-orders Sony will probably be disapointed that the PS4 is down YoY after the $50-70 price cuts along side the slim launch.



Switch: SW-7938-9367-7572

Congrats to the XB1 for pulling out the victory! I wonder what the actual numbers were with the XB1 being up for the month? I can't wait for Oct NPD now!



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

We need numbers but hopefully both are doing great!

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

It was still wrong though:

PS4 CoD bundle: #24
XBO S 500GB Halo bundle: #30

We'e got to be fair with this.

Yeah true but those are close enough and the numbers are close enough to fall within the margin of error. The Pro was #5 - higher than any game.



XBO > PS4
PS4 XBO > 293k (up YoY)

I dont quite get those numbers.If the XBO is above the PS4 in terms of total sales, should the XBO numbers be: XBO>354k ?



Congratulations to the winner!



l <---- Do you mean this glitch Gribble?  If not, I'll keep looking.

Where did you read XBO september 2016 is bigger than PS4 September 2015?

This is what we know

PS4 Sep 15 > PS4 Sep 16

XBO Sep 16 > XBO Sep 15
