One interesting NPD comparison on the software side will be Madden. According to Amazon the Madden order of sales should be PS4, XB one, 360, PS3. But I wonder if that's what NPD will show. Well it'll definitely show 360 in 3rd and PS3 in 4th, so it's between 1st and 2nd.


Since NPD does not count bundles it should be ps4,xbo,360,ps3



Around the Network

Been a weird month, X1 500GB MCC been out of stock since 13th and Batman PS4 from 20th I think and looks like both won't come back in stock and must be no longer manufactured.

We also currently have the Forza 6 and Halo 5 Xbox One's out of stock along with Destiny PS4 going out of stock for a few days mid month.

Also the 4th week seems as though hardly anyone is buying the hardware and waiting for the September onward bundle's with currently Just the madden X1 hovering around #80 and the only PS4 been the Destiny bundle for next month hovering around #40.



Who's doing the September thread?



Formerly ilovegirls69  :(

I know Metal Gear is associated with playstation but wth, it barely made any waves on any xbox console.

Atleast on Amazon

Shadow is. We're probably gonna have it up and running soon. (It takes a tiny bit co-ordination when you live 6 timezones apart.)

How comes until Dawn is currently out of stock? it's only been a week from it's release.

More to the point why is the digital code 4c more expensive, that's an outrage!

I think many retailers ordered a small quantity being rather risk averse with the title. It was certainly a game that had a very hit or miss vibe to it, and with the recent memory of The Order fresh in the minds of retailers they were probably leaning more towards the miss side than the hit side. Hence, low numbers of copies ordered.

This game is (I think) literally the first completely new IP AAA PS4 exclusive that has had above average reviews. I don't count Bloodborne in that because it's part of hte Souls series in everything but name. And of course so far Sony hasn't had one genuine 1st party new IP get above average reviews for PS4. (Until Dawn is 2nd/3rd party and so is Bloodborne)

Final update for Week 4 rankings. Nothing to really look at, though, as Amazon still has stocking issues.

See you all in the September thread.

My guess, understocked by Sony because they weren't confident in it's popularity.  Sold way way way more than predicted based upon public reaction.  Mr Rezpion, and one of the KindaFunnyGames guys, were pretty positive about it (I watched Rep play a great deal of it...if I had the money, I'd be buying it also).
