Ur assumtion is wrong

We also know, that the XB1 sold 1 million as of 15th November 2013 (afther outselling Ps4 for 3 weeks. the sunset overdrive week, the cod week and the halo week) http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/xbox-one-sells-1m-in-the-uk/0141711
We also know, that next gen sold 240k units the black friday week with xb1 being shlighly ahead (within 1k units or so)
And that week was an 120% increase over the previuos week, wich the xb1 sold most, too
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=141774907&postcount=216

that alone would add 180xb1 consoles

 

and now u want to assume xb1 only sold 15k or even just 115k units the whole december and january (while one week in november easy sold more)? in the second biggest home console market in the world?


xb1 is at 1.4m or maybe even more as of
but that does not mean ps4 is at 1.6m only. that number is to low, too
the only reasonable answer would be the "more than 3 million" phrase being at least 3.09million or even 3.1x million or more

 

both xb1 and ps4 sold a shit load of units november and december in uk

PS4 sold more in November + December... so if you think Xbone sold 1.4m you will need to add more than these 400k to PS4 not including what it sold in September/October.

It will give you more than 1.6m and more than 3m for PS4 + Xbone.

That is not possible... sorry... for more than Xbone sold in Nov and Dec... PS4 sold more... that is pure maths.

Best possible number for Xbone is 1.3m... my estimates is more close to 1.2m to be fair.

i know that ps4 sold more in december and with that gap even more in november and december combined (probably very slightly, but doesn't matter)
yes, if xb1 sold 350k in november + december, the ps4 sold 350k + x units

 

1m ps4 was early/mid september
1m xb1 was mid november

240k xb1+ps4 the last week of november
110k xb1 + ps4 the previous week of november

xb1 sold the most for the last week of october and all weeks of november
ps4 sold the most for november and december combined (so the ps4 outsold the xb1 in december by enough units to negate the november salesgap)

 

december ist still the best selling month for home consoles. (december is also 5 weeks, while november is just 4 weeks) so its 99,9% safe to assume december sales are > november sales
400k xb1 + ps4 is my lowest estimate for november (only 50k xb1 + ps4 for 2 weeks in november the cod and halo week)
400k xb1 + ps4 is my lowest estimate for december

 

 

that 3m figures seems to be way to low.
3.2 or even 3.3 seems more likely
it's either that, or the ps4 sold nealry nothing between september and november - that's is impossible
or december sales crased hard and both nexgen consoles sold only 50% of its november sales - that's highly unlikely, too

 



Xbox outsold PS4 in November and has been close ever since so the gap isn't 1.5:1 anymore.

We know UK is 1.3 million fir XB1. But I disagree with your 11 million statement. Microsoft said it shipped around 10 million by November. No way its under 11 million as of February. In fact, I say that vgchartz is tracking the XB1 pretty well WW. So yeah I think their right, you just want to thresh the XB1 down.



I guess 1.9M PS4 and 1.1M Xbox One.

I think we're fighting this for nothing. Game said that the PS4 and XB1 have sold OVER 3 million. It could be 3.1 million, 3.3 million, maybe even more. So why not we just assume vgchartz for now is tracking both console right.

That is my point... VGC based sales in EU + RoW in UK weekly charts so if they lowered the UK sales due overtracking the WW sales will get lower too.

And the 10 million shipped was for Black Friday and holidays... and they didn't reach that number... they are aming to reach it until end of December... the sales at that time could be 8 million or even less.

This is definitely  wrong. We know PS4 reached 1 million in September, while XB1 reached 1 million in November. Your telling me that within 6 months PS4 sold almost a million, while within 4 months XB1 only sold 100,000?

Over 3 million is less than 3.1 million... if it was 3.1m they will say over 3.1m... the number is most close to what they give.

1M doesn't mean sold. It could be shipped.
