I suppose with all the calling other people out going on I should dig up the posts of the people saying Halo would sell 3M+ first day... They were... So... Confidant... or posts to congratulate Microsoft for how well Halo did... Nah I think I'll pass, to much salt from two sides today. Nintendo is absent outside a few people being happy at Yoshi charting.

I still say everyone did poor.


Not gonna lie, he played this out perfectly.

Eh, I'm just mocking everyone. I mean lets be honest, the hardware numbers are way lower then nearly ALL predictions regardless of if some people are happy with them. Software for Halo possibly being under 1M being a shocker and borderline unimaginable. Everything's crazy. Just people looking to hold dark clouds over others today left.lol

Wow yoshi charted! Good job :D

Also slightly happy to see Rock Band 4 above Guitar Hero Live. Finally Harmonix have beaten their legacy outright.



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

Horrible sales numbers all around today :(
It's the console apocalypse I tell you.

Please let sales rebound in November. Pretty please sales gods!!!!



3 AM and no pie yet. No 3DS numbers, either. This is the first time we haven't gotten numbers for all the current-gen consoles (sans Vita, which we haven't seen any numbers for since last year). Right now, the XBO's 304k is the only thing for certain.

*sigh* Hopefully something crops up between now and when I get up, but I think I'm calling it a night.

Xbox did not win though,PS4 sales were just lower.Barely selling 300K the month that Halo 5 relases with bundle is not a win.People expected Xbox to sell over 600K,some even more with Halo releasing.


No, Xbox sold more this NPD no need for whatever it is you're doing. 


No one is saying it didn't sell more,but Halo should have pushed way more consoles period and it should have easily been by more than 200k with the PS4 selling so low.If PS4 had sold its usual (over 320k) then Xbox would have not sold more.Basically PS4 numbers were much lower than expected,Xbox did not see a significant spike as many claimed it woud.MS needed much more in October.

So you were expecting either a close win for PS4 or a huge win for Xbox One? lol that's so much bias.

MS won October with a $500 console leading the charge. No matter how you guys want to downplay the win. Even when some were so confident


Not downplaying anything. Both consoles sold horribly considering what both had going for them. 

 

Yes it was small but at least Xbox finally got a win. That's all that matters. 

Exactly,but the fact is that MS had more riding on this month than Sony and PS4 had higher numbers in September with Destiny.Nothing is being down played or spun.Halo did not do what people claimed,period.

I told you Smeags that Halo 5 flopped.

It is dad.

You know what, I'm done with your shit.

You aren't getting moderated but I am now imposing a ban on all future posts by you, you are hereby banned from mentioning anything to do with the Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One or the Xbox version of any game, and any Xbox exclusive, even if done respectfully, and even if you try to skirt the rules by using implication rather than direct reference.

If you make a single post in future that breaks the terms of this ban, you win yourself a moderation, regardless of how badly you break the rule imposed on you.

You have extensively demonstrated that you are unable to approach discussions involving any Xbox platform without turning it in to some kind of mudslinging competition and frankly, i'm fucking sick of it.

I'll be PM'ing you this message so you can't play the "i didnt see the post" later down the line, too.

People are getting far too comfortable with trolling and baiting the Xbox community on this site, it's about time that ended.

This post is extremely hypocritcal and shows moderation bias.People from all sides do the same thing,but you single him out? I have never seen a mod on any forum do something like this.This should not be allowed.The mods on this site are a huge joke.

- Moderated, Carl

Lol everyone in the amazon thread was sure the ps4 would win. Now they say that it's not a real win for the xb1 and they don't talk about the shameful numbers of the ps4 considering the price cut.

No matter how bad some PS fans act, you're just a Xbox version of those fans.

I know. That jmurph guy seems to not get that. Everyone and their mothers were expecting halo 5 to destroy ps4 and to only have a 30k gap and barely 300k consoles is a huge shock. 

 

Its not downplaying, it's a fact. Halo did not perform like halo. Simple as that.

That sentence isn't fair. I see just as much baiting and trolling from the XB camp. Atually some seem to get away with too much. Don't just single him out like this because it's fucked up.
