listswars.. nice
can you give me the list for september pls?
that games will mange to sell 200k additional ps4 consoles

 

ohh whait...

that's destiny and mgs V



The XBO will probably win august. Last years august was pretty darn close, thanks to the Madden bundle, and this year the price is at 349$, and in addition to the Madden bundle, they also have Gears Ultimate and Rare Replay. Now of course, the september PS4 bundles will also siphon PS4 sales (just like the Destiny bundle did last year), but the PS4 also has Until Dawn.

2014 august:
XBO - Madden bundle, promotions, 399$ base price
PS4 - Nothing (except multiplats ofc), 399$ base price, september bundles stealing sales

~20k gap in PS4s favour iirc

2015 august
XBO - Madden bundle, promotions, 349$ base price, Gears Ultimate, Rare Replay.
PS4 - Until Dawn, 399$ base price, september bundles siphoning sales.

=XBO win

This isn't a list wars, this is showing you why I think the PS4 will outsell the XB1.

And of course to counter your rather ridiculous statement:

ps4:
nothing, but a possible negative impact due to some people preoder and wait for the 399 limeted destiny bundle

Does that list look like 'nothing'?

At least this is a good thought out process :)

Do you expect the Madden deal this year to push the same number of consoles then? I would expect it to drop a bit, but I also think the PS4 sales will drop also... 

I think it could be an XBO by a slight win.

Mad Max is September and so is FIFA... MM is MS marketed? But i expect it to push Sony hardware. While I expect FIFA to push a little PS4 hardware (those that havent moved across yet).

Look, I just happen to think the PS4 will win August. You decided to emphasise your point by pretending the PS4 has nothing for this month. I simply provided a list to show it DOES have games for this month and believe the momentum from last month and the titles this month will edge it for the PS4. If I'm wrong I'm wrong but I'm not going to pretend the XB1 doesn't have a chance because I decide to pretend it has 'nothing'. Can't you differentiate between heated debate and unecessary argument?
