Hey , someone said they come out on the 14th... It's the 14th where are the numbers?

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

I always knew MS paid attention to SW. I guess ever since the reveal Microsoft's found out in a rather harsh way just how badly word of mouth can effect them.

I think everyone expects the x1 to sell more. M$ put a lot out for the x1 to sell, bundled x1, price drop, free game However it kind of weird that M$ is not reporting numbers. M$ is a company that likes to gloat.

EA is the only one that knows how much titanfall sold. They will reveal titanfall's current LTD soon.

In B4 "Cows play sales"?

#162 Edited by hoosier7 (3780 posts) -

X1 will take it this month, don't know by how much as it's not my region.

We really need an update on WW numbers, MS' silence is deafening.

#163 Posted by monson21502 (8061 posts) -

xbox one 2-1 all systems combined....

#164 Posted by tacoma1972 (147 posts) -

No matter what X1 has lost. Even if they manage to sell more it wont last and look at the effort it would have taken to try to sell more for one month.

Titan Fall packed in

Price drops on X1

Mass Marketing (the X1 and Titan Fall was on every web site and in every publication)

@MonsieurX: and MS does ? and 3rd party not important anymore ?

So,you deflect my point

LOL

Cows last gen: but multiplats aren't that good,dem exclusives!

Cows this gen: let's hype the 3rd party games cause we don't have exclusives

Dat hypocrisy

hypocrisy goes both ways monsieur...fanboys on both sides are adopting each others arguments from last gen. its seriously funny to see this from a non fanboy perspective.

XBOX ONE: 548,589

PS4: 190,560

Wii U: 17

That is pretty close to what I think for sure.

What is Nintendo going to do?

#171 Posted by tyloss (829 posts) -

Lems if PS4 wins: " Cows only play sales because they have nothing else"

Lems if XB1 wins: who am I kidding, that's not possible.

#172 Posted by FoxbatAlpha (6192 posts) -

@kuu2: right now Nintendo is on the fast track to the bad side. I don't see them being aggressive enough to change things around.

Sony seems like they have joined them in a dead heat race to go out of business.

IF THE PS4 doesn't outsell the XB1 this last month, I want a permanent ban.

so if X1 beats PS4 in the March NPD you want to get banned?

#181 Edited by misterpmedia (3364 posts) -

Are we predicting 'Xbox*' again this NPD? :P

Gotta give love to the Xbox family now ;)

Dude that is....a ballsy prediction. Kudos.

#183 Posted by Nonstop-Madness (9469 posts) -

PS4 - 250K

Xbox One - 280K

A small victory by Xbox One (primarily due to Titanfall) but ultimately, Titanfall didn't move enough consoles to deter the PS4's overall momentum.

Well, that was an account suicide.

#185 Edited by tyloss (829 posts) -

@misterpmedia: all or nothing .

PlayStation 4 dominates Xbox One, that's my prediction.

They only ship 300,000 units to the US each month, though.

@Shewgenja: wait really? No doubting you but link ?

#188 Posted by Chris_Williams (14874 posts) -

wonder how many people are going to be banned today

#189 Posted by Heil68 (43625 posts) -

Hope it's good news for the Xbone and lems today, they sure need some! *fingers crossed*

One month is still one month, but the One needs a WW price drop or to even get a bit lower than the PS4. They have the games, updates, and features to have a very strong year even as they trail the PS4 in overall sales. But more than everything a worldwide price drop needs to occur. After that its games and features all day and night. MS is far from out of the game and TF has helped and will going forward as its DLC keeps the community playing. I'm not sold at all that the One will catch the PS4 in sales this year, but achieving price parity and a very strong E3 will ensure a successful year no doubt.

That would imply selling at a (decent) loss, as it's doubtfull that production wise either console is ready to scratch $100 of it's current price tag. If I'm not mistaken PS4 makes around $18 per console and XB1 makes around $29-ish. So perhaps it's a bit too soon for something so "extreme". $50 would be a start (and far less damaging).

I agree with the logic, but MS is 3 million behind and won't be out in a number of countries until September and are falling behind bigtime overseas. This may be the time for a price parity drop and eat the loss early on to build a strong base even as you trail the PS4. Fanboy fun like here at SW aside, games, features and price sell systems. MS needs to be at or lower than the PS4. That doesn't ensure it will suddenly leapfrog it in sales. Not saying that at all. But Come the worldwide release in September, they need price parity and a shitload of games to have a strong year. At this point that's gotta be the goal going forward IMHO. Now I know its easy to say as someone who isn't a stockholder or anything, but just looking at trends, price is still the biggest killer and parity is a must.

If Microsoft didn't win last month then that is a disaster. With all of the Titanfall bundle ads all over the place and the small price drop...well it would be a shame lol.
