    GTA IV smashes UK day one sales record: 609k (360: 335k PS3 274k)

    in Sales Discussion on 30 April 2008

    Think over the next couple weeks the more interesting numbers will happen. I assume most of the initial days sales were for existing console owners. Over the next couple of weeks we will see who is purchasing the title along with hardware....

    Wii Why?

    in Sales Discussion on 24 April 2008

    I just dont get it.Wii continues to sell like gangbusters, but honeslty at it's core promise it is failing.Hear me out on why I say this.In the past 6 months Nintendo has released some true blockbuster games and if you like those sort of games you should be in heaven, but the puzzling thing is these games really make little use of the Wii differentiator.  I am talking about the...

    Do you expect 360 and/or PS3 price cuts for GTA4?

    in Sales Discussion on 27 March 2008

    I still believe that MS will drop the price of the 360 a week before GTA IV comes out. That maximizes the units sold at current price and gives a distinct advantage over PS3 when GTA IV hits the street. MS surely wanted to wait until a price cut will minimize the effect on the first quarter financials (MS 3rd Quarter) which ends on Monday. With 30 day price guarantees MS wants to wait until...

    MS: 360 to trail behind for February and March for NA

    in Sales Discussion on 13 March 2008

    The release from Microsoft does not say that sales will be low in March. "We definitely expect we will trail in February as a result of our supply constraints. By April, we will be in a very healthy inventory situation."Says they were constrained in February.Says By April inventory will be very healthy. That means during March inventory will build. This I suspect is to they can have a very...

    fightinglee said:People are not at all aware of a price drop. There is no evidence that there will be a price drop, except that Microsoft is beginning to lose more of its already precarious hold over the ps3 in terms of sales.

    360 in stock... Where is the major boost?

    in Sales Discussion on 12 March 2008

    First off sales are not poor. VGChartz says that 360 sales in February were 100K more than last year. They would have been better had it not been for shortages early in the month.Now the very reason that they may have become short was retooling factories for Falcon model. It is entirely possible that the final 3 months of 2007 had factories building both the retrofitted models and the 65NM...
