Forums - Sales Discussion - January 2017 NPD Thread! PS4 #1

So windows central just "happened" to have the numbers for two months - and that's it?
None before - none after?

Having had a lot of experience with - the dog from Charlie Brown - I found those Windows central comments hilarious. To believe people are just that blind to why the ps4 is dominating is nothing less than funny.

MS hold all the cards right now. 

There's games in PS4s list this year ( if they don't get pushed back again ) that are just massive duds."And gets royaly destroyed by Elite Dangerous in every single way."



Well, Jez Corden says that they weren't able to get NPD numbers. I guess the party's over. The well has dried up, and now the NPD has succeeded in making game sales data a closely-guarded secret unfit for the eyes of us plebeians.

P.S.: I don't know why but my last comment evaporated into thin air when I tried to edit it and got an error while the edit was processing.

Do you actually believe the things you say, or do you play the fool to match your name?

How to pronounce it properly..

this is the quote from Windows Central comments.

U have opened Pandora Box sorry.

You need to visit VGChartz and do your own research on Japanese games in the west. They list them by region. People are buying the Xbox One. More now than ever. So that proves people aren't listening to the usual PS exclusive list BS. Most people I know with a PS4 bought it because it was more powerful for COD or Battlefiled. They don't buy Sonys exclusives. And again if you look at VGChartz you will see that Sonys exclusives outside Uncharted and GT don't actually sell much at all.

Do you have trouble understanding english? Should I ask the questions in a different or easier way?

I have no real clue what you are saying, so I assume you may be having trouble understanding me.

I think he was quoting certain comments from the WC article. Note how the font is different from the default.

I know basically no country save Japan cares about Gravity Rush (and even they're not head over heels about it - I think GR 2 has done about 100k) but still to have it bomb so hard is disappointing. English speakers just seem immune to the game's charm, for some reason. I can't really explain why it's so much less popular than some other Japanese games, as it features gameplay that would seemingly be appealing. 

 

Ah well, at least GR2 is a great sequel. 

Cant really care about a game if you dont know it exists. this game didn't seem to get much of a marketing push, if it werent for me visiting this site & Neogaf almost daily than i probably would have never heard of it.

To be honest, I think they could market the hell out of Gravity Rush and it wouldn't make a bit of difference. The game was fairly known for a Vita game and the first game actually sold more on the Vita than 2 did for the ps4. Sony could have dropped millions of dollars to advertise the game and likely it would have bumped the game from selling 30k or so (in the US, it could be much lower than that) to a whopping 40k. Some games just don't appeal to certain markets, and Gravity Rush is one of them.

Oh ok. The lack of queston marks threw me off. I don't remember all the quotes so I wasn't sure what was going on.

That is helpful, thank you.
