I keep seeing 'tagged'. How do you do that?

You write the word "tagged", then the thread appears in your buddy on the left of the screen.


im waiting for your gifs or ar we waiting for the WiiU doom post?

Yep, you'll have to wait until then. If I'm still awake, ofcourse (hitting midnight here now).

It's all rather tense, isn't it?



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Around the Network

Well done Microsoft, very good numbers for both consoles. Do we have PS4 numbers???, or at least some % by how much Xbox One won over the others like other months?

I want to know if Xbox One had a wide victory over its competitor (around 650-700k PS4) or if it won just slightly (around 800-900k) because if PS4 just lost the month by less than 100k, it will be like VGC was saying all along, so anybody should be surprised....

So, 1'8m Xbox One and around 2'0m PS4 sold in USA in 2013. Very good numbers for both. Sony just need to put more shipments in USA because the WAR is going to be battled there, and is going to be cruel and visceral...XDD.

I just want it on paper that I don't think 100k for the totals here or there really matters. It's just something fun to discuss and speculate about.


But that is exactly what you ARE doing! You started by saying there are 500k units unaccounted for then when I pointed out there is 200k in Canada, 50k in Latin America, 60k in Italy and so on taking it up to more than 2.9m with 3 more days to add then you start saying "yeah that proves my point"!?

No, it's just you seeing something that was never there. I never said there were 500k units unaccounted for. Seriously. How in the name of VGChartz can you keep repeating that? 

There are not 3 more days to add, btw, because the US has 4 extra days (and sales in the US account for over 50% of One sales)



So much for GT6.

People need to really understand how amazing it is that Nintendo keeps their franchises relevant for so long, it's not an easy thing to do.

Icing on the cake.


We had the "before" photo from ethomaz unintentionally. Now we need the "after" photo as well.



There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

""Hardware sales of the Wii U were also positive with December 2013 marking its highest month for unit sales month so far," NPD analyst Liam Callahan noted"

Wii U better than expected! Right?

People are really arguing over a few k? Is it worth it?

Sure, the XOne could have sold 2.9mil in reality, and the PS4 could have sold 4mil. Is it that big a deal? Just look at the differences in the figures, that's over a million either way! Surely people can just be happy with that and not bother arguing over the trivial details.

No, PS4 really couldn't have sold 4m...Why would anyone "round up" from 4m to 4.2m? That's not how it works.

True, but I was merely trying to point out the big difference in sales figures, which are only going to grow (most likely), making the whole argument pretty trivial.

And why would you even doubt official numbers anyway? They're "official" for a reason, after all.

Kudos to MS for pulling such a stunt :P
