This kind of shit is why arguing with people like you fucking sucks. You're being either intentionally or unintentionally obtuse.
No one in this thread is arguing that holiday sales aren't monstrous in comparison to non holiday sales, people in this thread are arguing, and I'm gonna bold and capitalize this so there's no misunderstanding (but i'm sure there still will be somehow), HOLIDAY LAUNCHES, SUCH AS THE PS4's, HAVE NO ADVANTAGE OVER A MARCH LAUNCH BECAUSE DUE TO HOW POPULAR CONSOLES ARE, IT ISN'T POSSIBLE TO SUPPLY ENOUGH CONSOLES TO MEET DEMAND IN THE LAUNCH PERIOD. THERE ARE ENOUGH PEOPLE WILLING TO BUY A CONSOLE DAY ONE THAT THERE JUST WILL NOT BE ENOUGH AVAILABLE, WHETHER THAT IS IN MARCH OR NOVEMBER.
I would have thought this was blatantly obvious. Like I can't even believe this discussion has gotten this far and that now its being misconstrued to encompass things that weren't even the point of the discussion to begin with.
Like how can you sell what you can't make?
Which console in 30 years has launched with stock of more than 2.5M units in its launch week?
If you sell outta all your available stock in 2 days in march. It means you would have sold out of all said stock in November just the same all other things being equal (price and that game).
If you are selling as much stock as you make, which is dictated by you manufacturing prowess... then it doesn't matter what time of the year you are selling them. you are still limited by your manufacturing capacity.
Somehow, in this thread... these concepts that I would have thought were obvious are suddenly so complicated.
