Can PS4 do what Wii never did? Now with Poll back in.

Forums - Sales Discussion - Can PS4 do what Wii never did? Now with Poll back in.

Will PS4 get through 2014 as the highest selling console every week of the year?

Yes 140 50.72%
 
No - Xb one will beat it at least once 55 19.93%
 
No - Wii U will beat it at least once 21 7.61%
 
No - Both Wii U and Xb on... 33 11.96%
 
Don't know/don't care/see results 27 9.78%
 
Total:276

70/30 yes, but maybe not.

Though to know for sure we should wait until something like March 2015 due to adjustments. VGC had ps4 beat in a few weeks in the past only to adjust it up and back to perma #1.

Speaking of China... how does one go about finding info on actual sales?

hahahahahahahaha No.

The PS4 will not dethrone the PS2. Gaming was at it's peak in that era, now it's slowing down...a lot

Did you even read the OP?


Nope, don't care either. Since 99% of other threads on this site delve in to off-topic. 

So why bother posting?



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Xbox one probs beat it China week. Even if it didn't. Halo mcc will.

Franchise fans fall into a few categories:

Will by anything with the franchise name on it (Halo Wars and Halo CE Anniversary are good indicators of the size of that fanbase).

Will buy any game with the name on it that is within the originating genre (as a FPS CE Anniversary is a good indicator of this, and also ODST)

Will buy the mainline games, but not spinoffs and remakes (Self explanatory)

And of course these groups have day 1 buyers and later on buyers.

I think Halo MCC is up for about a 500K launch week. And I think Xb one is up for about a 50K HW boost from it. The real Halo system seller is Halo 5. My guess is that PS4 will have more than a 50K gap on Xb one in November.

Xbox One already outsold the PS4 one week, Titanfall week. VGC has March US numbers under tracked by over 32k, which was probably taken away from that week, so it is very easy to see that the Xbox One was over PS4 WW for that one week.



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

It's fun to make yourself look stupid.

Or so I hear.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Wii U might beat it when Smash realeases on black friday, or during holidays.

32K isn't undertracked. The difference is about 11% and both NPD and VGC have a margin for error. NPD is a more accurate approximation but it is not 100% accurate. At some point in future VGC may adjust by 5% or so, but that adjustment won't all be in Titanfall week. It is possible that VGCwill eventually give that week to Xb one, but there is absolutely no certainty of this. Certainly no one anywhere in the world can provide evidence to refute the number VGC has for Xb one for that week. And in all likelihood VGC has Xb one's worldwide LTD tracked pretty accurately at least through to July.

Also PS4 remains chronically undertracked by about 2-300K. Who's to say PS4 isn't undetracked that week? Especially given PS4's VGC number is 26K less than NPD for March.

32k is under tracked. No other way of looking at it. NPD's margin of error is way lower than VGC's.

PS4 is under tracked 2-300k after August. November 2013 - June 2014 are pretty much an accurate LTD for the PS4. The majority of that 23k would easily go to Infamous week.

VGC once had Xbox One win Titanfall week, but after adjusting March for no reason, ioi had PS4 beat the One.
