That's over $1000 aussie dollars.

Yeah, Na......



Is there any reason Bayonetta is doing so well..? Didn’t think it would even be too 50 yet lol.

I hope xenoblade is doing ok in the West...



Bet with flashfire926: I think switch will win November NPD, and he thinks xbox one will win (if ps4 is victorious, it's a draw). Loser has to state that they lost in the signature for some time.

When there is nothing better or anything more concrete, I dont see the issue if its used as a means to give an idea.Its the same argument I had with you once about Xenoblade if Im not mistaken.

The problem is, there IS something better:

According to NPD Bayonetta 2 on Wii U sold 182.000 as for November 2015, and is the best selling version of a Bayonetta game. Aka Wii U > 360

 

Now you look at VGC and:

Bayonetta on 360 is over 500K and PS3 version over 440K for a total of almost one million in NA only!!?!??!

 

...ok

I was actually refering to Bayonetta 2 sales, which is about right as far as we know.

Now you may be right about Bayonetta 1 sales.I wasnt aware of that.

I've mentioned it a few times but Sony is handling the PS4 pricing superbly. Look at the charts, the PS4 is priced a full $50 more than the XB1 and it still outsells it pretty comfortably. The Pro also sits comfortably in the charts at full price.
Also Sony have a few cards to play. They eliminated the 500GB choice over the holiday and pretty much only sold the 1TB model over December. Now they can drop a cheap 500Gb, reduce the price of the the 1TB/Pro and have system pushing games like GoW to stimulate sales and keep momentum. They can play these cards as and when needed.

To be fair MS is stuck between a rock and a hard place. They have no choice but to resort to reducing the price of XB1. Being the same price as PS4 means they get stomped on.

I didn't expect the Xbox One X to be in contention with the PS4 or Switch globally but I'm pleased that it's proven to be more than a niche product for the "premium gamer".

It's odd how the Switch isn't performing as well in Europe though.
