I'm honestly expect a disappoint month.

Last year October sales were pretty conservate for PS4 and XBO, even with pricedrops and system sellers... i expect that from now October will become always smaller, cause now most people are waiting the holidays deals in November during Black Friday. That has also decreased a lot the December sales those years, which were very higher years ago, while now December is smaller but November is much bigger. December is still a big higher but i expect both to be at the same level very soon.

As for this month, i expect great sales for PS4 and XBO, but nothing of impressive even with the release of Battlefield, Titanfall, and Gears of War. PS4 Fat/Slim will be also hurt by PS4 Pro in November.


Between PS4 and XBO should be a close battle, still not sure about who will win since we haven't September numbers yet. I expect PS4 to win September, if the gap is notable then PS4 should win October too, if the gap is small XBO should win cause Gears of War and Battlefield marketing.

 

Expect both PS4 and XBO in the 250-300k range.



2020 predictions: NSW 21m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

Welcome October...finally getting towards my favourite time of the year Xmas :D

PSVR month, lots of games, and not much time to play them all.

It is game-topia this month. I wonder who's gonna lose out from being all crammed together like this?

Probably anything that's not called Battlefield, Gears of War or Skyrim, unfortunately :(

Titanfall. mI would be surprised if it sells more than it did when it came out in 2014.
