September 2016 NPD Thread! XBO #1; PS4 Slim flops

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

Boutros, add "3DS #1 handheld" to the title.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I waiting for numbers. If numbers are close then those last deals for the end of September by MS pretty much sealed the win for them.



Not surprising. There's nothing really enticing about the PS4 Slim that would warrant a buy over the normal PS4 or Pro. I'm expecting the same/bigger in October with the Gears 4 and Battlefield 1 console releases.



Congratulations xbox.

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.

Both better keep it up... This competition's great stuff for us... 



It was Britain, it is America, tomorrow France and next year, the world... 

Warning: This poster has a very negative opinion of Sony and Nintendo, Idea Factory and companies Tecmo Koei, EA, BioWare, Blizzard, Treyarch, Infinity Ward, Kadokawa and Sega. If you have very positive views of these and a negative view of Microsoft or Bethesda Game Studios, AVOID ENGAGEMENT AT ALL COSTS! 

    Wowza! Didn't see that coming. Xbone is a good console, well deserved.



    The PS4 Slim is the Carolina Panthers of video game consoles.

    How about you make a reference that people outside of the US can understand?



    This whole 'slim is a flop' thing is asinine. The slim simply replaces the OG PS4 and isn't intended to do anything but offer those with less money an option. The Pro is an option for people who want an better alternative to original PS4 specs. Both are PS4s and that's all that matters. The only reason the PS4 lost Sep is clearly people are opting to wait for the better specs, it's not because the Slim 'flopped'. I repeat, because some people either don't get it or want to differentiate in order to create a 'flop/success' situation in order to inject negativity where there is none:

    OGPS4+PS4s+PS4pro = PS4 sales

    Stop thinking like forum users and start thinking like Sony.



     

    The PS5 Exists. 


    *chuckles* this gonna be good.

    Anyway, good job MS/Xbox.
