$199 is basically impulse buy at this stage. Combined with holiday shopping season it’s no surprise it’s selling out. Really nothing strange about it at all.

xbone s at 189$ is still available.

Cool. 



Well, sure. A current gen console at $199 with a huge library will do that. Shouldn't be unusual

Reminder that Sony originally expected to ship 18m units this fiscal year, now raised to 19m, which is still less than last FY's 20m.

I still think it will remain flat or increase, not fall.

Didn't they overship quite a bit last year? My understanding is that shipments will likley be comparable between FY16 and 17, but that sales to consumers will be up. Correct me if i'm remembering that wrong though.

Can you see the gif I just replied to you with? After I post it on my phone, it disappears. Weird. 

No I don't see them my friend.

You are correct



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

And that's for the 500 GB XBO model, right?

What a sensational console. 

This reads like a straight up advertisement. Amazing. 

Kero is like our Sony PR maker in VGC.

So? Is Black friday, how is this surprising at all?

I guess this is one of those onanist threads.

Care to colaborate with the thread?

You are right, and they had to ship a little less in the next quarter (so the shipment of the FY16Q4 was lower than FY15Q4 but sales were higher... they were burning the excessive stock).
