The problem with Microsoft's deal is everybody and their dog knows an $100 or added value deal is probably days away. None of them seem to be trying hard these holidays. The Spider-Man and Switch with game bundles were both quite good for a short period, but it wouldn't surprise me if combined sales of all 3 was down or flat. I hope I'm wrong.
There is $100 off the XBX currently. Nobody has noticed though cause since october it has being the unofficial MSRP of the XBX...
This is like those stores that have permanent sales, or go from spring sales to summer. As soon as people see what is happening, they stop going because of the sale and just go to check when they need something. There's stops being a shock factor and that Wow what a great deal, must buy that before the deal ends.l
just to clarify I am thinking Nintendo will be up, but the other two combined will be down in a way that makes it pretty flat. It's not a bad thing, last year's sales were fantastic, and we are in a later year with no X launch to inflate the numbers.
I just prefer to talk combined till we see numbers, otherwise it is a never-ending circle of being attacked for not matching up with other people's imaginary numbers.
