1. Gears

2. I expect Microsoft will have some kind of fire sale near PSVR launch

3. Sony will likely announce Infintite Warfare bundle in the next week that will take sales from other available bundles

4. I expect PS4 pre orders will pick up getting closer to launch.

I don't think PSVR will have any affect on October sales, seeing as you need a PS4 to use it. So most buyer already have a PS4 or will be getting one with the PSVR.

Yeah, that makes sense. It sums up one of the reasons I think the XB1 could possibly take Oct too, but I'm not going to invest in it just yet. One thing that could upset the apple cart is those with limited disposable income. Anyone who was on the market for a second console (XB1s) could instead opt to use that money to buy a PSVR. We'll see.

Not really looking up at it much anymore, but I'll tag it.

What's your thinking on this? Gears month and perhaps PSVR taking sales away from PS4? I'd say that's legitimate logic but still too early to call.

edit: I hope that didn't come across as 'passive agressive'.

Honestly October is the last month of the year I see Xbox haveing a chance to take.

I agree with your 4 points, its going to be a close one (I think).

However it could still go either way.

When will we see the 500GB bundle back in stock?



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Taggy.

You mean the Halo bundle? Wouldn't surprise me if it's being completely replaced by the Battlefield 1 bundles.

Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Minecraft bundle is replacing it. Mass market $299 bundle while Gears and BF1 get retailer exclusive $299 bundles.



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
