Forums - Sales Discussion - PS4 Black Friday Bundle Outsells Xbox One Equivalent Soundly at GameStop; Ranked 2nd and 7th

It’s doubtless that Black Friday is a strategic date for shopping in the United States, so it’s not surprising that leading retailer GameStop decided to provide a rich bundle for both the PS4 and the Xbox One.

The PS4 bundle included the console, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, a second DualShock 4 and a year of PlayStation Plus for $609.95. The Xbox One bundle included the console, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome, a second controller and and a $20 Xbox One goift card for $699.96.

Apparently the PS4 bundle was considerably more successful than the rival, ranking 2nd in the Best Selling chart (beaten only by the Xbox 360 version of Just Dance 2014), as opposed to the 7th place of the Xbox One.

It’s interesting to notice that GameStop did try to keep the Xbox One bundle under the psychological amount of $700, while the same effort wasn’t done with the PS4, that wasn’t sold under $600.

On the other hand, looking at the last generation, the PS3 bundle including The Last of Us and Batman: Arkham Origins is ranked 9th, while the Xbox 360 bundle with Tomb Raider and Halo 4 is in 12th position.

I keep hearing both consoles are sold out in NA yet for some reason they still keep selling. Was the stock magically replenished today?

I assume every single console avaialble was sold out, so doesn't that just mean that Sony sent them more consoles to sell?

Didn't Sony tell retailers to hold consoles back for Black Friday?
If Sony would have wanted they could have sold them Day1 but they knew they don't need to and just gathered more units for Black Friday were people probably are more willing to spend more money(don't know cause we don't have BF here)

I have no idea what Sony allegedly did or didn't do. Did MS do this as well because the situation was the same for both from what I read.



surprising that sony shipped more to gamestop as microsoft did (well, i just think both sold all available units but sony shipped more) when they also have the european launch.

i wonder if sony really just downplayed their real aim and said they expect to ship 5m till end of march to "surprise investors" when they can produce so many units. they obviously knew that they can easily sell so many when they produce so many so that it was only a question of how many they will produce.



xbox 360 killin'

I'm not really here!

No shit that Just Dance 2014 sold the best, it was on discount today for only $14.99!

Even I bough it today for PS3! I bought 12-month PS+ for $29.99 and Tales of Xillia for $19.99.

iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.
