I just noticed this but since the Xbox One won this week with the Madden bundle and the game still sold better on PS4....just think what Advanced Warfare bundle will do. Xbox One will easily win that week. The COD brand is still strong even though our pre-order chart doesn't show it.

That would mean ignoring the holiday boost that both the X1 and PS4 will get during the month. There will nothing easy about the X1 attempting to claim the week, with or without that bundle.

I didn't say it was easy, but the XB1 has something going for it, which is the first time we can say that since Titanfall.

Sony has LBP3 for November and a rumored GTA V partnership. Who knows how LBP 3 will sell and who knows how well a re-release of a game everyone already bought will sell.

Of course COD will give PS4 a boost too as will Assassin's Creed and every other multiplatform. I'm not saying Xbox One will win November, its still an uphill battle.

Your exact quote:  "Xbox One will easily win that week". Also, the month of November is irrelevant. We were talking CoD week only.



                                                                                                             

My bad. I do think XB1 will easily win on COD week. It won on Madden week didn't it? COD is a much bigger franchise and will move a lot more consoles.

It won Madden week, in a slower month, by a hair, and pre-adjustment (if one is to come). Nah, I'd say those odds don't exactly point to "an easy week" for CoD. The Xbox One isn't the driving force for shooters the 360 was last gen, so there's nothing to really suggest a win at all (much less one without any trouble).

yea you're probably right. Easy wasn't the right word to use.



Madden boost for XBOX ONE. Wow WiiU. Not good at all! When does the next Mario game release?



PC GAMING: BEST GAMES. WORST CONTROLS

Next major release is Smash Bros in November.



Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287

Eh, if only that were true. Fans can be lost and gained

Looking forward to "Xbox time" in any case

But MS didn't lose any fans. However they only have about 24 million of them (collected in Xbog days), the other 60-odd million buyers of Xb 360 are the swing market and they look like they are swinging back to Sony and PS4 this gen.

Actually I'll give MS another 6 million fans they collected during Xb360 time, Halo and Gears surely managed that at least.

I think Xb one definitely will win CoD week in the USA. Xb one and PS4 are selling close enough on non-release weeks that this will happen whenever there is a game launch that favours Xb one. But people will mostly read too much into those winning weeks. A console wins when it sells the most week in and week out. You can't "win" by periodically winning weeks when certain games release. It's more or less like how it was between PS3 and Wii in Japan last gen.
