PS4 COD bundle: #15 (↑1)
PS4 Star Wars bundle: #19 (↑2)
XBO Gears bundle: #31 (↓1)

PS4 NDC bundle: #85 (↑8)
XBO 3-game bundles: #94 (↓2)
PS4 standalone: #97 (↑2)

While it's been less than 48 hours since it happened and thus too early to establish a trend, if things keep up January could be a runaway victory for the PS4, the gap being even bigger than it was last January. For the last couple of days at least, at GameStop.com the COD & Star Wars bundles are way ahead of the best-selling XBO bundle. At BestBuy.com it's not as big of a runaway for the PS4; the COD bundle is at #1 while the Gears bundle is #13, the Star Wars bundle is at #21, the Wii U at #31, and the Tomb Raider bundle at #38.

The XBO couldn't manage to be the overall winner of the first three quarters of this year even at $50 below parity. With pricing now back at parity, the XBO doesn't stand a chance. MS better hope that the PS4 doesn't reintroduce the $300 price point permanently anytime soon. It's a price war they can't win, especially if their primary objective is to make money off the XBO instead of trying to get it to be market leader in the U.S.
