It's still out of stock. Just 3rd party sellers. 

Yeah, it went back in stock for like an hour, must have been some stock from people who cancelled their orders. 

Odd though that despite the Scorpio dropping the standard edition hasn't moved from #26 yet.

Either people are waiting and hoping the Scorpio edition will be restocked again (which I'm sure it won't), or alot of the people buying Scorpio were scalpers instead of people who were legit interested in owning an X. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

PS4 1Tb at 200 bucks Confirmed, let's see how many units it moves on BF!

P.D. You can buy a PS4 and a PSVR wit Gran Turismo Sport for the price of an Xbox One X. 

Sony spooked? Should have dropped pros price.

2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

To be honest, im honestly surprised that Sony wont be cutting the price of the PS4 PRO.

That was basically the most obvious strategy against the newly released Xbox One X.

This is interesting...

I don't know how big the stocks of the Pro are, but they can't be too big, considering it has supply issues in some regions. With that in mind, Sony probably doesn't want to cut the price just to make it compete in a single region



Switch is killing it!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

I've been saying for months that they wouldn't.  Sony is not interested in winning a holiday pissing contest.  They are up YoY, that's the important thing to them.  They aren't going to sacrifice potential profits in hopes of defeating a new console in its launch month.  This isn't the first time this gen MS has gone all in to win November and possibly December.  Sony didn't respond then, unlikely to respond much more now.  Now if the Xbox One X unexpectedly revives the Xbox brand and isn't just a temporary improvement, then expect to see a response.  But I doubt that will happen.  Power was a nice little marketing bullet point for Sony in 2014, but the real reason PS4 has beaten Xbone is the strength of the PS brand, built up by numerous acclaimed exclusives and a very, very wide range of 3rd party relationships that bring in superio variety.  The Xbox One X changes none of that.

I haven't seen any so far. I guess I got really lucky when I got mine last year for $340 on a Cyber Monday deal. 

I didn't realise there were any deals last year. 

And I actually forgot about Cyber Monday being a thing. If i remember rightly, more money was spent online on CM than BF last year. So perhaps we will see a few new deals there, maybe involving the Pro

Technically, there weren't any actual deals for the Pro.  A store, I believe it was Target or Best Buy, usually has a 15% off on electronics for Cyber Monday.  Amazon matched it, too.  If they do the same thing this year, you should be able to get the Pro for $340, again. 

Though, I will say I'm surprised Sony didn't at least offer a BF deal for the Pro, lowering it to $349.  I guess they aren't worried by the X, at all.  I think they figure that most of the sales are just going to existing owners, while they are more concerned about getting new owners and therefore extra revenue streams from more game and Plus purchasers.  Then, they will begin to dominate next January, anyway. 

And it seems they are right, especially on the former.  Even with all the new X/S sales, if you look at the Top 20, HW excluded, 10 are PS and 4 are Nintendo, leaving MS with only 2 for Xbox.

See above.  They are definitely mixing things up with a $199 PS4 for an entire week, though.  I'm guessing they got a ton of those bad boys ready if they are going to keep them available for a week, considering a PS4 that cheap is going to fly off of shelves.



Sony is playing the long game. They aren't going to react to XOX unless it starts o affect PS4 sales, and they aren't going to come to that conclusion based on a holiday launch month.
