In terms of the US, sure.

Isn't the gap like a few 100k? A Black friday victory and the Halo launch could easily balance the current difference if so. Add in a slight advantage over the holidays and then you have X1 winning 2015 in the US. Not saying I expect it to happen but its very possible

Gap is somewhere near 800k (770k?) according to the guru Zhang who keeps the best track I've ever seen of this kind of thing.

The way I see this is simple :

PS4 stays $399 = X1 ties PS4 for 2015 US Sales

PS4 goes to $349 = PS4 moderately wins total 2015 US Sales

PS4 goes to $299 = PS4 murderbaths the X1 in total 2015 US Sales

Wasn't last months difference alone nearly 100k?



Except the Gamecube had Japanese support. Xbox doesn't sell hardly at all in an entire region that Nintendo does well in.

This time around, you're comparing something that already has more than 50% marketshare to a machine that has no presence in Japan and minimal presence in PAL territories.

The US will go green this holiday but the World Wide situation will remain blue.

If thats the case for 2015 so far then I'd change my opinion. Anything below 500k is doable but much more then that will be difficult without sony being completely idle during the holiday with bundles, deals and marketing

I think it is possible for the XB1 to beat the PS4 in the US. The Xbox brand is still quite popular here in the states. There no doubt the PS4 will annihilate the XB1 in the rest of the world however.


This.

I expect that sony will have a temporary price cut for the holidays. I believe that with some bundles will allow the PS4 to outsell or at very least match the xbox one's sales in the holidays.



It's possible in the USA, but not worldwide.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

The Xbox and Gamecube weren't all that far apart, though...
