SOny should cut the price next month, or prepare to get soundly beaten in the holidays.

Yeah, and they have Battlefront. And they will still lose without a price cut.



Halo 5 was likely going to move some units by itself, but the addition of a limited edition bundle should provide a further assist. Even with the PS4 likely getting a price cut, October is going to be pretty close, and the XBO could even pick up another win.

For reference, the 360 sold 528k in September 2007, and that's with both Halo 3 and a $50 price cut. So, I think we can reasonably expect the XBO to sell 500-600k units this coming October.

Sony better get those Black Ops 3, Battlefront, and Uncharted Collection bundles ready along with a $50 price cut for the holiday season. The Halo series isn't as strong as it was last gen, but it's no slouch either.



Sony only needs a limited edtion COD and star wars ps4 and they win tbh.

600k in october !?

Not a Chance... Halo 3 effect was for 3 weeks, and after a huge August, Halo 5 is The last week of October, assuming we are SUPER OCTIMIST and we habe XBO at 200 - 250 k in The Halo week, how much can sell in The hothers weeks? Even 500k... Too Much. 400k is my prediction.

They won't get 'soundly' beaten in the US but they might get beaten in the US. They'll win WW as usual though.

BTW, it's optimist, and since you're using it as an adjective, it's optimistic.

@Bolded. Um, Halo 3 debuted on the last Tuesday of September, the 25th to be exact.
