Benji has only GameStop numbers

Is this a fact or just speculation? I never remember him saying he worked for Gamestop

Benji just posted his predictions/analysis (hes usually pretty close to on the money)

PS4-should be over 1 million
XBO-under 1 million but over 800k
NSW-up YoY but lack of CM this year could limit the growth

If the 3 of them reach 1M again in November, it would be quite an achievement in 2019.

That would be awesome but not looking likely for XBO, but who knows, his predictions arent always 100% correct and meant more as a general guideline.

Man you are just wrong.
PS4 had its best year when Switch released. The sales curve and peak of PS4 are very much what was expected.
Each market have a slight different sales curve and peak point.
It was expected that one point PS3+X360 would close the lead from PS4 and X1, because X1 started much stronger than X360 but after couple years it got a lot weaker and we had plenty of sure that Kinect would make X360 get ahead of X1 at one time (and as show to you it was more in USA).
Also Wii declined due to itself and Nintendo moving to WiiU SW development, had nothing to do with PS3, X360 or even Kinect.
You have been show the graphics, you are just being stubborn.

Fun note PS3 could have outsold X360 in USA if it didn't had Kinect,

But it did have kinect and didnt outsell it, coulda woulda shoulda. If the ps3 didnt sell like it did in japan, the xbox 360 woulda been ahead by several million in the end. Except it didnt. Theres always a coulda woulda shoulda.

Yes, thanks for what none of us knew.

It's as good as fact, even if nobody can dig up a quote where he says exactly that. Benji is suspected to be the same person as BenVTrigger on VGC for good reason, and Ben was open enough in his time here to tell us how he gets his information. He works at a high enough manager position at Gamestop where he can look up country-wide sales of Gamestop in the company's system, that's why his statements and predictions concerning the US market have had good accuracy over the years. It's quite a big sample size for the US market, even though it's only one retail chain.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I learned through this generation to not understimate XBO during holidays in USA....They always surprise me each year.

Yep they really go all out on holiday discounts.

$150 for S model+Minecraft & Sea of Thieves & $350 for X model+Star Wars are great deals.

It looks like Switch demolished competition once again in Black Friday day. It seems like PS4 again run out of stock just before BF like previous years.

Curious 1st paragraph....

"New York (CNN Business)Gamers are getting excited about the next generation of PlayStation and Xbox. But those won't come out until next holiday season. In the meantime, the Nintendo Switch is reaping the rewards of video game players holding out for new gaming systems."

CNN said it guys, people are buying Switchs because they want PS5s and XB2s next year.....

Nah it's more like they are saying PS4/XBO are being affected by having successors on the horizon while Switch is unaffected by this.

Yes, makes a lot of sense and those guys are specialist in game hardware sales.

"I'll buy Switch because PS5 will launch next year, why will I buy it? To not play the games that will release on PS5".

What i read there is that Switch is the one being affected (positively) or benefited because old consoles are indeed old....Switch is reaping the rewards!! Their words, not mine....
