Forums - Sales Discussion - July 2016 NPD Thread! Hardware and software up!

Xbox will win August aswell but after that is done again, unless they sell it the whole holidays for 199$ or 249$, if they don't it's game over until Scorpio.

WW is a bloodbath, things on the US are much more interesting right now.

"Thanks to everyone who helped make #XboxOne the #1 selling console in July according to #NPD, nice to be back on top!"

Xbox has the next 2 months in the back.
We have to wait for October to see how the possible Ps4 Neo release (+ orginal Ps4 a cheap entry model)  will compete against the Xbox One S

Everyone who is doing any predictions before that, will be fooling himself

August? Sure. September? Wouldn't exactly count on it. If Sony announces a PS4 cut to $299, I think September is theirs.  Especially if that's coupled with a PS4 Slim.

september will be 5 full weeks of xbox one s sales starting at $299
do you think the pricecut for the ps4 will be before the neo release? could happen, but i'm not sure about it. we will find out on the 7th september.
if sony will cut the price before neo release, they will announce "starting today at $299" that day.

i'm not even sure, when in october the ps4 neo will release. could be the last week. in that case the impact will be limited and mostly transition to november.
well we should wait until september 7th to talk about this :D

Depending on the PS4 Neo price I can see XOne beating PS4 for most of the months in USA until Scorpio come out.

Launching Neo and PSVR against a slimmer Xbox One is going to lead to PS4 selling less? That's weird

PS4 vs XOs, yes. Xbox will win.

PS4 + Neo vs XOs, no. Neo will have explosive sales in lat Octuber and/or November. We have to factor prices and demand to figure out the rest of the year.

Edit: and "most of the months" is not the same as "all months".



XBO got behind the 3DS with the XBO S?

3DS is a handheld. 

 

Hi Aqua, did you get my PM?

Greenberg is getting crafty with the PR. "Console" and "Handhelds" are two different things according to Greenberg.

Microsoft PR is on a whole another level.

PS4 is PS4 + Neo. Not sure why there would be a distinction.

When did MS or Sony ever include handhelds when talking about home consoles?



Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287
