I've been wondering is http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/profile/35785/benvtrigger/ the same guy as Benji-Sales?

According to him, no.

But BenVTrigger used to have some sales insights too right?

Cant wait of FF7 Remake/Last of Us 2/Ghost of Tsushima

Oh really ? so how many ? 2,5 millions ? 3, 4 ?



Current PB on Secret of Mana remake : 2h27 (2nd)
Strongest worldwide achievement on TGM : 1st European S13 rank
Fastest TI MASTER in Europe : rank Master V in 5min10
Current PB on Power Ranger (Game Gear) : 10min06 (World Record)

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.

crap, i might lose this prediction round.

FF7R is big though... thats like Halo levels of big.
Ghosts of Tsushima is probably like gears levels.
The Last of Us Part 2, is alot bigger than a halo title is.

Theres stuff for 2020... that should make new consumers want to jump on board, ontop of the already really solid lineup & library of games there.

Also like I said, that forecast down to 13.5m, is something thats gonna be blown past imo.

Halo has greatly diminished on Xbox One, hasn't it? So I am not sure if that's a favorable comparison.

Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us Part 2 won't release during the current fiscal year, so they have no relevance.

Sony had more than six months of PS sales data for the current fiscal year to look at when they made their downward revision to 13.5m. If they had thought that they have a good shot at meeting the revised forecast of 15m, they would have kept it. The stock market doesn't forget that the original forecast was 16m, so if Sony finished with ~15m like you believe after revising down to 13.5m, nobody would be impressed by it. Instead Sony's ability to forecast would be questioned because revisions are supposed to be more accurate, especially because the forecasted timeframes get shorter as the fiscal year goes on.

I think it's the same guy, but it would be understandable for him to deny previous nicknames. People have been going after his Benji persona often enough, so he doesn't want to carry the baggage of Ben as well.



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

PS4 should be 500-550k from August to October. We have not official numbers but estimate puts PS4 <550k.

The PS4 should have November sales similar to last year (so 1.3-1.4m units). Sony puts a cap on how many bundles are sold and their downward revision of PS4 shipments for the current fiscal year does not suggest an increase in the number of PS4s available for Black Friday deals.

Also worth noting: Benji speaks in the context of consoles sold at Gamestops across the USA, so the ratio of the sales he's seeing is probably not the same as across all US retailers combined. But in any case, expect November sales to be similar to last year.

Last November had the Cyber monday included, this year it won't. Because of that, general November sales should be weaker than last year, including PS4 sales.

I can see over 1 million but should be well under last year 1.48 million

Right, that's a topic that has already come up in various threads. The timing of Black Friday is different this year.

For NPD it means a worse November period and a better December period. Something to keep in mind for year over year comparisons, so no jumping the gun when November NPD results somehow get leaked. Better to wait until both November and December are in and make comparisons with both months combined.

If PS4 sell big just think how well Switch will sell, it's gonna be massive

I'm not aware of what deals there are for Switch, but I'm sure there will be a sales thread about that as well, as it's sure to sell a lot.
So it would be appreciated if in this thread you could at least discuss the platform at hand.
Otherwise it may look like a back-handed compliment like "Nice sales that will be completely overshadowed by the sales of this other system."


Note to other users in this thread; Please do not jump on that post just to remind them of what I just said, since it has been addressed.

I agree, and I really hope that everyone will honor this for any topic that is platform specific.

Through GameStop, yes. I also think it's the same dude, but on Era, VGC isn't exactly respected. So, his denial is understandable.
