So X1 at 305k and PS4 around 250k? How much is the PS4 lead in the US again?


Still didn't gave up on that bet?

Some times a man has to stand up for something.

My wallet is screaming profatiny at me as we speak. T^T

I can imagine that, and this month (November) seems heading to slaughtering your wallet even more xS

Well, so much for Amazon's perfect record. But like I said in that thread, people weren't looking at all the factors for XB1 to win.


It is worth pointing out that the Halo 5 bundle did rank #24 for September. That means there were a lot of preorders that carried over to October. When preorders for bundles are involved the ranks for just the month those bundles release doesn't mean much. Here's what Amazon gives us:

PS4 NDC bundle: #19
XBO Halo 5 bundle: #25 (plus #24 in Sept.)
PS4 TLOUR: #49
PS4 Destiny TTK bundle: #59
XBO Gears bundle: #77

There was only six spots between the NDC bundle and Halo 5 bundle. That's close enough to where the #24 placement from September for the H5 bundle could, when combined with October H5 bundle sales and sales of the Gears bundle, surpass combined NDC, TLOU, and Destiny bundle sales.

There is still 2 more months. Anything is possible. T^T

XB1 and PS4 didn't do as well as I expected... The Star Wars LE and Black Ops 3 LE bundles must have slowed down sales for PS4 in Oct.

Nov. should be a massive month for PS4, as well as XB1.

Indeed, before BF and after BF can be two really different things, numbers go high, possibilities come across.

It was August. And yes, I know that. I brought it up plenty of times in the thread.

You had it at a close PS4 win but that doesn't really matter.

Most people saw in being so close it could go either way but gave the edge to PS4, I did and see a few others also. There were also a few saying that PS4 had it in the bag which was just stupid to claim in the first place.


One annoying guy kept coming in the thread every day or so just to say stuff like "uncharted's still ahead...Looks like PS4's taking the month...People might wanna start preparing." etc

To look at some of the posts in there is pretty entertaining.

I think I see that guy. People like this aren't worth having a go at the PS crowd over and vice versa.

Surely wasn't just him. Its hard to go in there and not see one of the "sure win" guys.
