I'm surprised Sony aren't making the US more of a battleground at the moment. I guess in the states black Friday being such a big thing, that it eats up October, but surely instead of writing off the month they can make lesser deals already. In the UK for instance you can get the Gt sport pro bundle, with 2 extra games for $30s less than list price.

In the UK too, Amazon has a lot of online shopping competition, meaning it is usually the worst priced place to shop, so last on the list of where most gamers would buy from. I get the feeling the US could use this kind of competition too, because the lack of year round good deals and obvious price fixing will keep the majority of sales in the holidays again and more so going forward.

Sony, particularly the US branch of SIE, is focused on getting as much hardware revenue as they can. Mat Piscatella mentioned that the PS4 led all platforms in terms of hardware revenue even though the Switch won September. I'll take a gander that Sony will try to ride it out as long as they can until holiday season starts.



I wonder where it can rank in the software for the month

3D World only sold 215k and wasn't in the top ten, or anywhere close in terms of sales



I see that for sure, but surely adding in maybe a digital copy of horizon into every bundle, or something along those lines would serve it well at the moment. Especially when in both ps4s and x1s are bound to be down these holidays due mainly to the switch. Xbox might swing a lot of these lost sales back as people upgrade to the x. But you can't beat a bit of momentum.

SMO 2nd week will be over 3D world first week at this rate. Also that was a Nov release. This is Oct and SMO is dominating.

 

AC:O is probably the only new release that will top it in sales...... If D2 doesnt have the legs to beat it. SMO will be either 1st or 2nd

Thus far PS4 is up yoy in the US.  It's very likely and very wise to call that a win.  Xbox on the other hand is in the pits.

We'll see what happens October, the Switch is killing it right now.  However,  if the Switch's success doesn't inhibit PS4 success and it's still up yoy, expect Sony to be content with that.  Xbox is their most direct competitor and their own past sales their most important goal to surpass.  So long as they crush Xbox and are up yoy, that will likely be enough for them.

Well, we have a thread for this.

You can add your prediction as well. I expect about 800K.
