Eh, let's also look at what released the last time we had Slim Models. For the PS3, it was Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2. The 360S released with Halo Reach and the original Black Ops. All of these were high quality, system pushing, critically acclaimed games. 

The PS4 Slim + Pro and X1S have Gears 4 (brilliant, but not on that caliber), Infinite Warfare (another title that's decent enough, but no Modern Warfare 2), and The Last Guardian (love you, Ueda, but this was never going propel the PS4 into the Heavens).

To me, things don't look too bad.

What about Battlefield 1, Watch Dogs 2, Titanfall 2, Dishonored 2, Mafia III, Skyrim Remastered

New models+multiple big games+heavy discounts should have led to a YOY increase.

Now let's take a close look at that:

 

  • Battlefield 1 - Fantastic game. Yes. Not much of a system mover, however.
  • WATCH_DOGS 2 - Speaks for itself. Sold less than the original and wasn't accompanied by the same hype.
  • Titanfall 2 - As of now, it's selling worse than the original and was never going to contribute and major amount to the units sold of either console.
  • Dishonored 2 - Isn't a huge franchise like that.
  • Mafia III - While gamers seemed to like it, the game was critically injured, which usually cuts off any kind of legs for console sales.
  • Skyrim Remastered - May have moved some units, but nothing even close to the caliber of a Modern Warfare or some other major title. TES: VI will do that.

 

As for what's up YoY, we don't have solid numbers. So it's pointless to make any full assertions based on one unconfirmed source. You'll have a better idea next month.
