Excellent sales for PS4 and Xbox one. Was tbis black friday week?

No, that was 24th of November.

Which is why I’m wondering why PS4 is sooo damn high, XO I get, given the launch of the X.

Because VGC has to somehow fit 4M worth  of sales in a 4 week window.

VGC had the PS4 at 66M when sony had announced 70M sales.

Im sure others have pointed it out but PS4 sales seem way too high, especially in America, considering a $100 price cut is right around the corner.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

This thread is so past tense.

Thinking the majority of those increased Xbox sales majorly goes to the culmination of pre-orders of the X. Solid start. No wonder it's so close to PS4 on NPD. Worldwide though the 4 leads this week still. Practically tied though.

According to the predictions thread over at RE, i wouldn't call a 300K gap close. Last edited by Pionner - on 20 December 2017

Xbox domination. I said when xbox one x launches, it will outsell ps4 and switch every week until ps5 or nintendos next system comes out.

Ding ding ding! I know you said it. You said it multiple times over the course of a couple months. I thought I was the only one to notice and tried to draw attention to it. Like the episode of The Twilight Zone with the monster on the wing of the plane. I have to assume you're trolling, because most things you say seem pretty reasonable. Anyways, here we are again. I'm just gonna let it slide from now on and hope you aren't slipping into an early state of dementia.

PS4 still doing insanely well. December 3 update was 70 million consoles sold. The current numbers are shipped numbers revealed back in September. Hope VGC updates the stuff.

Why is PS4 so high?!

No idea, can't find the Nov 4th numbers for some reason, CoD launched the 3rd so the majority of that boost should have been last week. Don't remember any deals this early either.

I checked, and last year it had a pretty similar boost (809k). So I guess tis the season?

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.

PS4's Black Friday is probably close to 1.5 million WW given how it really took off in Europe this year, so I don't think it's inconceivable that it did almost 4 million for the month. I wouldn't be surprised if Will plans to adjust previous weeks too, but I'd need to ask him.
