Forums - Microsoft Discussion - NPD: Xbox One physical copies of Destiny outsold PS4. (Not bundled or digital)

Yeah, but the point I was making was that those PS4 people that bought the bundle must have been new PS4 owners not the ones that already had PS4s.

That's good, because it means it sold a lot of consoles, but also interesting, since it shows the existing PS4 userbase can't have been made up from as many FPS fans as the existing Xbox One userbase.

Because you think all the sales of the games on One were only on existing userbase ? A lot bought the console for the game, look at the sales. Still, even without the bundle, it's pretty much the same ( 800k / 875k )

Kind of makes sense really. Xbox One wasn't boosted by that much and of course they had that free game deal that week, with the free game being digital it wouldn't have been included.

Free game had to be a retail disc.  According to the ad posted somewhere in here.

Pretty good. I'm somewhat surprised. I expected the PS4 version to do better even if you ignore the bundle and PS Store.



4 ≈ One

Did they have to buy Destiny? Included?

Oh, fair enough that makes sense then.



''free game outsold a paid game.''

The fact still remains that more physical copies of PS4 version were sold to customers. Only 300K of those PS4 boxes with discs were not counted by NPD because they were inside a box containing a white PS4 console.

The XB1?  No.  They had the option to buy any XB1 (bundle or not) and select a free game off the stands.  The ad image is linked in this thread, go check it out.



Fucking terrible news
1 million+ US people wasted $60

So ppl are assuming? 



Don't include bundled? lol well, considering that's the real battlefield right there it's not very impressive.
And the numbers included the promotional free game off the shelf for xb1?
