Forums - Sales Discussion - PS4 sales stumble, as nobody buys one during BF week

Those numbers looks really off. I guess i'll wait for npd numbers.

Hmm.

We get told over and over again that they can't adjust the PS sales numbers, even when Sony release figures, because they can only work on hard data.

 

So where are they getting the hard data for the MS consoles, that always seems to over track slightly?

if you read the sony statement the numbers are based on Estimate by SCEI. This annoucement by Sony was made since they knew that PS4 has sold more then 30 million units world wide as of Nov 22nd.

I think with this information it's safe to assume that PS4 numbers is undertracked by at least 1 million units as of Nov 28th. But, Vgchartz doesn't have the proper data or information to know what period and market this variance need to be applied. Most likely VGchartz biggest variance in PS4 sales comes from rest of the world numbers.  You guys are trying to spin it that Nov 28th numbers are under tracked by 1 million. We also don't know if the Xbox one numbers are undertracked.

Don't get me wrong I also have my doubt that PS4 lost to Xbox One in NPD for November. But, Vgchartz much closer then your given them credit. 

?

I simply pointed out the purpose of the thread. I never said I agreed with the views of the thread. If you must know I don't and I already know it isn't fair to assume vgchartz would get it very accurately, especially on Black Friday and the rest of the holiday season. Actually... I don't care about sales at all. I just saw the thread title and knew it was going to be absurd levels of sarcasm, which is hilarious to see once in a while :p



Well not being the best console in the market is probably the reason for it stumbling.

Which would actually help me a lot. lol!



PS4 is dad! :D

It's a joke thread mate. I'm pretty sure nearly everyone in this thread has been joking, and those that weren't were the ones that didn't get the original sarcasm.
