Why do you people care about this stuff so much? It's like the same 7 or 8 people always parroting the same things over, and over and over again...

It seems as if you care more about arbitrary non-factors more than video games themselves, why not argue about things which are meaningful instead of this senseless drivel that amounts to absolutely nothing?

You're on a gaming forum in a place called "System Wars" asking about why people care about sales?

You can't be serious.

This isn't sales talk so don't patronize me little child, the numbers don't seem to actually matter beyond win or lose, this seems to be some kind of perverse abuse gratification to belittle others and the products they enjoy more than celebrate the ones you put on that you do.

This is disgusting, and you should genuinely be ashamed to call yourselves gamers, it's an embarrassment.

Oh really what is it then? An NPD thread isn't a sales thread, you learn something new everyday on SW lol

The joke is on you coming to a forum called "System Wars" for serious discussion. General gaming is that way...

Don't try being a smart ass with me small fry and posting stupid little gifs because you think it add strength to what you're saying, it doesn't.

The thread is about sales results, but it's just an ulterior motive for you insecure little children to attack other peoples interests, and that's beyond stupid.

Why not form some type of reasonable or rational dialog? Talk about the system you claim to enjoy so much and its success and less about belittling others and what they like, like I said it's some perverse obsession.

You think "System Wars" is a free ticket and excuse to be an asshole, it's not, grow up and start talking some sense, you're belligerent and immature.

LOL, you need to take some time off System Wars and the internet dude. You are getting all asshurt over people joking around in a forum. You really take this shit seriously and then try to come off as mature, the irony.

No I will not have dialogue in a place called "System Wars", the day I start doing that is the day I take a break from the internet and go and find a new hobby. Like I said earlier, either go to General Gaming or GTFO of the thread. No one is forcing you to post here and we're all having a laugh and trolling. You're acting like you have a stick up your ass and trying to act like being uptight and butthurt over simple internet trolling makes you look mature. It doesn't, it only makes you look like a whiny bitch that can't take a little teasing.

The worst part is you play it off that you're joking when it's plain to see that you're completely serious, this is likely a big part of your daily life, you "trolling" is your scapegoat so you can continue doing it unscathed.

I'm not being uptight, I'm being honest, I'll continue to be honest and inform you that you and your cohorts are toxic. I've been around here enough to see how you people react when things go the opposite way and not in your favor, you peddle excuses, play things off, ignore them, all clear indicators that this is something very real to you.

You act as if I'm new to this place or something, on the contrary Mr. 2015.

A person like yourself would define anyone posting frankly or from a grounded standpoint as "uptight", it doesn't surprise me you feel that way.

If anyone needs a break it would have to be you, this has obviously become much too real for you.

Damn, X marks the flop.

Latest hardware numbers from GAF

PS4 = 405k or 406k

XB1 = 248k or 249k

Wii U = 69k or 70k

Sweet Jaysis! Time for an update OP.

  • Wii - 432K (from 274K)
  • PlayStation 2 - 351.8K
  • PlayStation 3 - 280.8K (from 269K)
  • Xbox 360 - 254.6K (from 230K)

February 2008 NPD...hahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Oh look the xbox 360 in the same time frame outsold the XBO for the month,the PS3 as well and PS2 even that it was 8 years old on 2008.

The funny thing is that the xbox 360 did 230k on February 2007,so the 360 was starting to gain speed,the xbox one actually is down year over year so xbox one sales are going down while 360 sales are picking up,as i already claimed by this year end the xbox one will be behind the xbox 360 sales wise.

@spicymeatball27:

Forza 6 dint chart on NPD last year and latter on neither did Tomb Raider so i say SF5 did well.

It's way easier for a game to chart in February than November and maybe even September at times depending on the year. ROTR would have most likely charted if it released this month instead of november. SFV probably won't chart next month.

That depend on what is the game and when F6 came out there was nothing on xbox one basically to play but gears collection,Tomb Raider i can understand it some how because it came vs Fallout but Tomb Raider was also on 360 as well,Forza Horizon was the same and Sun Set Over drive both didn't chart either on NPD on 2014.,

I can understand what you're attempting to accomplish here but this entire line of thinking doesn't actually hold as any form of comparable or logical positioning.

  • Different time
  • Different community
  • Different trends
  • Different game releases
  • Different consoles
  • Different social views and stigmas
  • Different launches
  • and the list could go on, and on, and on...

Basically, everything was entirely different yet you're trying to draw irrational parallels.

Things PC gamers don't do:

Pay for XBox Live

Play on XBox Live

Pay $60 for new releases

Stop gaming to recharge controllers

Stop gaming to change batteries

Make sure the monitor is on the right input channel

Worry about native resolutions

Make sure the disc is in the tray

buy discs at all

worry if the next PC will be backwards compatible

pay a single red penny for Microsoft licensing rights on third party games

"No one is buying the X1"- 249k sold. Only in SW are approximately 250,000 people buying something "no one". PS is the heavyweight nobody denies that. But there really is no reason to lie.

Well then just come out and say that, you don't need to add a bunch of useless information in to make things appear worse than they are.

That seems a bit speculative to be honest, especially on the cusp of some pretty big releases this year, it could happen but I wouldn't get your hopes up.
