Its not really normal nor is it a trend since this is like the 2nd or third time this has happened(not 100% sure).

This is something that just happened due to January being a snow month.

Why does it being a slow month make it a reason that PS4 could of doubled the XB1 sales. What is your thinking behind this?

Slow months usally affect the xb1 more than the ps4 with the exception of April 2015. I think the reason for this is MS, they seem to have really good deals during different times of the year ao people who want the xbone wait compared to how Sony doesn't get desperate and can maintain steady sales through the whole year especially after the holidays.

So you want to say the major factor that PS4 might of outsold the XB1 2 to 1 is because of a slow month?Nothing to do with lower price of the fact that both consoles now retail for the same price?

The price had something to do. Xb cant compete with ps4 at the sa n e price.



It seems that Xb one may be turning into an event console. Sales are generally low, but at certain times of year sales have big spikes: Holidays; special deals associated with major events / game releases etc.

Much like the original Xbox.

Not 'something' like it's a minor reason, it's the main reason the PS4 will outsell the XB1.

Of Course, they don't sell well over the year, let a lot of bundles in the shelves, and need to sell it for free in the Holidays for Clear the shelves, this is Microsoft's Strategy, because of that the PR of "Best Line-Up in Xbox History".
