Forums - Sales Discussion - February NPD 2019 thread

I've been away so long, I can't even make decent predictions anymore considering I barely know the landscape right now...

Wtf happened to me?



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

You're washed up, a shell of your former self.

XBO had deals last month, too, yet the PS4 beat it almost 2:1. I just don't see the XBO beating PS4 til maybe Dec.

If I recall the January deals were mostly near the end of the month while the February deals were pretty much the entire month. I could be wrong though.

PS4 should definitely outsell XBO regardless but it will be much closer than January.

That could be the case.  I could have sworn it was longer, but I may be wrong.  Either way, going by Amazon rankings, PS4 is still going to have a good lead over the XBO.  PS4 has 4 consoles in the Monthly 100, at #42, #45, #77, and #99.  XBO only has two and those are very low.  #87 and #89.  It may not be 2:1, mainly because of the larger numbers, but I can still see it being the same ~90K that it outsold it by in Jan.

This only affected the very last week of January and the XBO was dead the 3 weeks before because of the discounts during the holiday season. It also showed this on the NPD prediction thread and that it had 0 chances to keep up with Switch and PS4 in January.

XBO was on sale in some form or another throughout February, and in front of the PS4 for half of it in the prediction thread, ending up slightly in front.

PS4 can end up beating the XBO, but it will be not by much if it does (the advantage in the prediction thread is pretty slim, close to a tossup in elections).

See above.

Ya I agree completely. Similar size gap in units but percentage wise much closer than last month.

Only going by Amazon, PS4 would beat the XBO handily. Only going by Gamestop, and XBO would win, no contest. Both are much closer this month to each other than you'd think.

Like I said, it's not guaranteed that the XBO would outsell the PS4, but their numbers should be pretty close to each other at the very least.

Why almost everyone are giving an estimation significantly higher than January for the Switch ? There are only 28 days but is this just because of the 35$ offer ?

LET'S FACE THIS FACT : The Switch is the last physical video game system of the history who has a chance to beat PS2's sales.
