Did sony do enough to win november NPD?

Nah 291 38.96%
 
Yes 130 17.40%
 
They can't lower their p... 242 32.40%
 
xbox one is the future of the USA. 82 10.98%
 
Total:745

Now hear me out.

Sony knew this holiday MS was going to be very aggressive  in the USA. MS gave great bundle to consumers @ at sweet price of 349 and even 329 during black friday.

Yes, Sony did have the black friday bundles..but it seems they went into november thinking the PS4 HYPE will get them the victory regardless of the prices this holiday season.. Sony refuse to drop the price to be competitive.

I have said this many many times.. price matters..

We can go as far as to say ps4 got such an early lead in the USA because of the 399 price.. [ of course there are many who still think that price has nothing to do with it]

 

Anyways.. Poll is up.. vote..

Did sony do enough to win November [ one of the biggest npd of the year]?



Praise the One.

Maybe considering there current situation Sony value money more than winning a month's NPD.



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

Switch lite really screwed up my Switch prediction this year! Looks like it's going to be about 19.5m-20m for the Switch in 2019, 14.3m for PS4.

they don't price drop, because Sony needs every dollar they can get



Or maybe they went in to it thinking we got the whole world to stock not just murica.



The PS4 sells A LOT an is the market leader at the current price, so I see no reason at all in lowering the price this early (and thus lowering your profits). Sony is not interested in a price war.

M8, America is all that matters!!!!

Stop resisting and be humbled.

 

But yeah the ps4 is the fastest selling console of all time, why lower the price?

Maybe SCE just thought "where the fuck did our money for the planned pricecut go? Damn you Sony Corp.!! *shaking angry fist*".



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

If x1 continue to outsell in the usa , they might need to drop the price



Praise the One.

They will win the year and are still dominating worldwide and I'm willing to bet they will still dominate next year



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.
