X360 Estimate WW for November 14th

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - X360 Estimate WW for November 14th

If 360 is less than PS3 this week then expect more aggressive discounting of the 360 perhaps even outside the USA.
It's been said that MS are willing to give away this holiday period to PS3 to keep their eye on the longer term goal. But anyone with a competitive mindset will not be able to bring themselves to accept defeat during the highest sales period of the year and despite what might have been said previoulsy they will act to try to gert ahead of their closest rival.

This week will see a slight rise in hardware sales but will still be behind PS3 and a long way behind Wii. Nothing new to see here

"...the best way to prepare [to be a programmer] is to write programs, and to study great programs that other people have written. In my case, I went to the garbage cans at the Computer Science Center and fished out listings of their operating system." - Bill Gates (Microsoft Corporation)

Bill Gates had Mac prototypes to work from, and he was known to be obsessed with trying to make Windows as good as SAND (Steve's Amazing New Device), as a Microsoft exec named it. It was the Mac that Microsoft took for its blueprint on how to make a GUI.

Seems to be a little bit of lowering of PS3 expectation in here to manipulate a wow come thursday.

360 295,500
PS3 330,000

That would put 360 only down 5% YOY which is fairly good considering.. and the PS3 would be up around 50% yoy.

Jesus the PS3 did awful last year... this years 360 figure is almost 40% higher than the PS3 at the same time last year. Kinda puts the 360 current performance into perspective... not at all bad.

In a time where sales go up every week from now until Christmas the PS3 sales are going to drop week to week? O_o

Got a retro room? Post it here!

Next week though the 360's numbers are going to drop because they have been artificially inflated by the walmart deal. All other gaming hardware should rise though
