We're almost into April and I'm pretty sure Sony (or someone) would release a 2 million in UK announcement, so I think as of January 24th, it would be PS4 - 1.8m and Xbox One 1.5m.

Also 1.9 + 1.5 is 3.4

lol fixed.

The point is 1.5m maximum for Xbone because a number over that will give a gap below 300k... and 1.8m minimum for PS4 because a number below that will give a gap below 300k too.

The gap needs to be over 330k.

So maybe more close to 1.45m and 1.85m for Xbone and PS4 respectively.

Yup that works too.

But this also means the ratio is down from 1.5 to either 1.2 (1.8:1.5) or 1.3(1.85:1.45), so this is sorta good news for MS.



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

According to the Sony dichiaration, PS4 is undertracked this year, by around 200,000 (VGChartz have PS4 at 20.2M, but 18.7M by end of 2014, when we knoe that Sony have annunced 18,500,000).
We know that 100,000 undertracked is for the US, so, we have around 100,000 undertracked for the Europe (or other).

I don't see PS4 to be overtracked, i think that is spot on (if not undertracked, by a smaller number's, but still undertracked)

So, seem that XBO is overtracked, in UK, and very probabily even in Rest of Europe...



2020 predictions: NSW 21m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m
(PS5 and XSX predictions will most likely change after we know enough about them)

New estimates with the 3.3m for January 24th.

PS4: 1.8m min
Xbone: 1.5m max

What I used:

- PS4 1m / Xbone ~670k early September
- PS4 sold more in Oct
- PS4 sold more in Nov + Dec
- PS4 (guesses) sold more in Jan

So the GAP needs to be over 330k to be true... if you increase Xbone over 1.5m and PS4 below 1.8m you will have a GAP near or below 330k... so these are the closest min and max for PS4 and Xbone respectively.

PS. Fixed the PS4 number.


thats way more reasonable.
this are mine estimates

xb1:

1.40 million min
1.55 million max

ps4:

1.75 million min
1.90 million max

 

 

combined = 3.3 million :)

i really hope, we get an 2 million (when it happens) anouncement. that would give us a way better picture at the acutal ps4 sales in uk

The article isn't wrong though. 3.3m is over 3m, so they were right.

You were wrong by assuming everyone rounds numbers the same way, because clearly whoever wrote the article does it differently to you.

The article is cleary wrong... it is not 3 million and it is not for the end of January.

It is 3.3m for January 24th... one week before the end of January.


so the official number is 3.3 million for 24th of jan?

First of all,it's what i belive,and not a fact. Besides i think brits know a lot more what's going on in their country,than we do. As far as i understood,the interrest of Xbox is very low in UK,because that's what those friends keep telling me,and some of them work in gamestores. I don't say it is the truth. When it comes to my country(which is part of Europe) Xbox is more or less dead,10 to 1 in favour of PS4(but that's OT)

I ask a group of people who they're voting for and they might say BNP. Not an indicator of the country. I know plenty of people with an X1 an interest is very high. Retail execs have said it themselves.
