I guess October Sales doesn't matter

Forums - Sales Discussion - I guess October Sales doesn't matter

Is company PR full of crap?

Always 45 56.25%
 
Never 5 6.25%
 
Only from the company I don't like 16 20.00%
 
November and December are... 14 17.50%
 
Total:80

During summer PR talk when asked why they weren't releasing numbers anymore MS said summer sales are so slow (with one month equating a Holiday week) that it wasn't important.

That left us thinking we would see something for September or at least October.

since they haven't said the numbers but put out some spintastic PR about shipments and november first 2 weeks can we conclude october doesn't matter as well?

can we take the PR unrelated to NPD as a sign of bad sales for the month (or at least really smaller than Ps4)???

when will sales matter again? When they are big enough, above ps4 or at smaller gap? Or as some members here said, perhaps never?

But we don't have numbers to assess the bloodbath.

Outselling your competitors for two weeks doesn't mean a whole lot. It's the holiday season that's going to be the test though. I hope everyone has good bundles and deals for then. The games themselves look okay, but neither XBO nor PS4 seem to have a killer exclusive, which they make up for it in the third parties so that's okay.



Sales matter to MS when they can come out and say they won. Just look at what they did with being the best selling console for 2 weeks lol.They are already screaming that to the roof.

If/when they win the november NPD, just wait till you see the field day MS PR is going to have with it. You will think they have won the entire generation. Then if they lose the december NPD, watch them go silent again or blame supply issues after their great november.

Lol wow so they won two weeks. They got their ass raped hard all year by ps4. By January they'll go right back to being raped for another year till halo 5 comes out next year. And by then Sony will be leading them by 10-15 million consoles ww. So let them gloat for now while they got the chance cause it won't come around again for awhile :)



It will matter again once they beat PS4 in one region. They'll sing it to the heavens. Only the months they win (in one region) count apparently.



Thanks jlmurph!
