I would be lying if I said I wasnt curious for the NPD this month. Usually I dont care but I want to see if Titanfall had the weight most expected it to have... Now I still predict the Xbone got the 1st place this month and that Titanfall sold a ton but it didnt had the impact MS expected it to have

we'll see

Honestly, I think if TF pushed 400k+ MS will be fine. Its still just one month and you're trying to grow the business with the more expensive product. MS should look at the bump in sales in the UK and US. Both had far more to do with the price drop than TF. And that's coming from a huge Titanfall fan.

I hope Dark Souls 2 sold well over 1 million units >:)

I have a funny feeling titanfall along with the price deals/console bundles provided a bigger boost for the xbox one than infamous second son provided for the PS4. The xbox one will be in first this month.

#105 Posted by shawn30 (4316 posts) -

As I said before X1 outsold the PS4 in March thanks in part to Titanfall.

That's what I think as well. The One sold very well here and in the U.K in Feb. Titanfall likely pushed them over the top, but securing Titanfall wasn't just so they can win one month in 2 territories. They want it to a reason to want to invest in Xbox

NPD aren't even in yet and folks are already having a meltdown?

#107 Edited by kuu2 (6823 posts) -

600k or bust for The One.

300k for the PS4.

Who cares for the WiiU.

I think we all do.

There is a lot of hate in these thread (fanboy wars) but DS series is something we should really support in these forums.

I really hope the game sells well.

If it is the other way around, something is very very very wrong. Very Very wrong.

when does NPD release?

14th as usual.

#114 Edited by trugs26 (5138 posts) -

Isn't NPD only retail? It'll be difficult to judge from NPD. We can only falsify whether it sold well. So if NPD is low, we won't actually know. And I'm guessing most sales on the new gen consoles are digital.

I think they care more about the hardware sales

@xhawk27: Titanfall XB1 or all 3 versions?

No Only the X1 and PC versions. Since it's only fair to include the PC version because the PS4 is out in three times as many countries.

npd numbers only include US right? So then your reasoning behind the amount of countries ps4 available is dumb wouldnt it?

It always is. As if the XBox was ever strong outside of Murica and the UK, anyways. He has to put in his bu-bu-bu teh countries in.

Reality check: If it wasn't for TVTVTVSportsSports CableBox 720 functionality, the damn thing would have launched months ago in those countries.

@Shewgenja

Ya, seems like he is fishing for an escape clause in case titanfall didnt move enough units lol. In all honesty i think the country excuse is weak regardless. Not like there is a huge market for video games in the smaller countries that PS4 is available in. I mean how many units do people really think sold in countries like South Africa, Oman etc... lol The primary markets is the US and european countries, if ps4 is beating xboxone in those areas not really much of a chance of them (MS) winning overall lol

520k was what the 360 got in sales the month Gears of War came out. If XBone sold more than that, they might not be in quite as weak a position as people are thinking. If it's less than that, though. Tough times could be ahead.

#123 Posted by _Matt_ (8799 posts) -

Xbox One will lead by 30k units.

Aleady PM'd @lglz1337 about this information. He will take care of it.

Xbone better have dominated March with the bundles and price cut. Oh and one of the most hyped games ever.

If not...then LOL

Maybe NPD will finally reveal what TF sold.

Its not like MS not to brag lol I mean MS WILL release number of kills in the first week as a record.. Why no TF sales numbers????

#135 Edited by ReadingRainbow4 (12852 posts) -

Time to see if Titan Fell.

#136 Edited by Chutebox (36227 posts) -

This is kinda pointless. I mean, we'll see hardware numbers. But pretty sure a lot of TF sale numbers were digital purchases. And those don't appear on NPD, unless someone can correct me.

They don't. I think they said sometime ago they would begin to *track* Steam sales or something like that, but so far we've seen none of that so...yeah. No digital sales for NPD.

#138 Edited by Sweenix (5395 posts) -

Titanfall plus price cuts everywhere will see the xbox 1 ahead.

@lglz1337: I love how since the PS4 has been "winning" NPD numbers, NPD numbers are all of a sudden worthy of a sticky. Funny how when the 360 beat the PS3 (for what, 2 years straight?), it was never sticky.-worthy.

I sense a lot of cow in the mods of SW...

Yup, I think that's one prediction that's guaranteed to be true.

@lostrib: that's how hypocrisy works and don't act like only cows have it

also sony can survive with 1st party and MS not what do they have 3 studios ? making kinect games ?

I don't think any game console can survive on just 1st party. Especially Sony, because it takes them forever to release 1st party games. There would be months and months that go by with no games. Microsoft has increased their 1st party studios. They have about 10+ now. I'm sure more will be announced at the E3.

@MonsieurX: dat twist

fact both games with exclusive content available on a cheaper console and obviously the most powerfull console

dat twist?

You're the one that went to 3rd party games because it doesn't have any other exclusives this year besides The Order

Cheaper? 449$ PS4 or 450$ X1 in Canada

One backwards, no population country (sorry Canadians, but it's true, you guys live in the damn woods). In the United States its a $100 difference in favor of the Ps4, and so in other places in the world. Why do you hate the Playstation brand so much? It's not that you love xbone, as you have proven in other threads, you just hate any system other than wii-u that has some semblance of good news.

Anytime anyone posts anything remotely positive about PS (or even xbox), you are in that thread spreading your bs..... I just don't get it.

Are you a nintendo fanboy that feels resentment that PS stole nintendos crown in the 90's? As you never post anything bad about them...

I just don't get it. Why do you have to be in every damn thread, every single one it seems that something other than nintendo is mentioned, where you spew your bs.

And you NEVER EVER, say anything positive about anything! It's always negativity and cynicism. (at least that I have seen). Is your life that sad that you have nothing better to do then to hate on everything? Is there really nothing to do in the French Canadian province you most likely hail from, that you must troll people on a forum all the time? Whats your deal? Do you like anything? So far I don't think you do, as its all been negative...all the time.

#143 Posted by Midnightshade29 (5238 posts) -

I expect Xbone wins NPD but PS4 remains ahead in total sales.

This... I will give it to MS this month.. if only for the massive advertising they did. I couldn't go to a gamestop without seeing the entire ftont wall plastered with Titanfall and Xbone ads. That and they paid for store space at the door of all gamestops... I asked a GS employee about this, as I was in 3-4 gamestops that month and every one had Xbone games right when you walk in the damn door after the titanfall bs ads... Apparently MS pays for that. They pay for the ads, and the placement in the store. Playstation is all the way in the back, where a few months ago it was in the front...

I will say ms sure loves to advertise to the braindead masses. Get your message out there enough times and the sheeple will think it's true. Just look at the bro gamers of last gen to see what I mean.. Or the "secret sauce" cult of gen 8.

m$ is refusing to release them, they are currently in talks to buy the firm that releases npd numbers because they cant take the shame any more. lems should take note of their idol company and pipe down, ps4 will dominate march #truestory
