USA Preorders Chart, 16 November 2013 - Xbox One Launch Estimates

"There are 12 games in the top 40 to be in its final week: 10 of the 12 games are for the Xbox One which launches on November 22. Call of Duty Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, Dead Rising 3, Madden NFL 25, NBA 2K14, Knack, FIFA Soccer 14, and Need for Speed Rivals.

The Xbox One opening week is in the US is expected to fall just shy of the PlayStation 4. The PlayStation 4 launched with 1.06 million units in the US, while the Xbox One is expected to sell around 900,000 units. However, the Xbox One is also launching in more countries. Xbox One worldwide launch sales are expected to reach between 1.2 and 1.5 million units.

Two games have 200,000 or more pre-orders, down from five last week, and the top 12 has 100,000 or more pre-orders, down from 15 last week. Six games added 20,000 or more pre-orders, up from five last week and 15 added 10,000 or more, down from 20 last week."

While once PS4 launches in Europe it will beat that figure, Xbox One will have the second biggest worldwide launch in gaming history.

cleft51463d ago

If they only do 1.2 mil worldwide than that is not a good sign.

Vojkan1463d ago

VGbs HAHAHA how can anyone take this site seriously is beyond my understanding.

shoddy1463d ago

I assume 1.2 mil ship not sold cause xbone not out yet.

DragonKnight1463d ago

It's not going to be 1.2 million worldwide. That's almost impossible. The Xbox One has its flaws, but it's not the Phillips CD-I or the Panasonic 3D0. Also, it's not even releasing world wide until next year.

FamilyGuy1463d ago (Edited 1463d ago )

I'm thinking could hit 1.5 mil on the 22nd from the combined U.S. and EU sales while Sony will hit well over 2mil once it releases in others regions on the 29th.

If a second (smaller) shipment of PS4s hit retail stores this week or some time before black friday I can see Sony hitting 2.3mil for the november month alone. That's obviously if all the stars align and the claim/rumor of having more units in the U.S in time for black comes true.

indysurfn1463d ago

Am I the first one to notice this?

This article is VERY conniving! Why?

It is showing the top 12 AFTER all the PS4 preorders have been sold (and would no longer count as preorders). If they counted preorders the day BEFORE the PS4 launched, or even compared last day of PS4 preorders to last day of xbone preorders it would not have been conniving. This is why you only see games for ps4 not out yet, on the list.

Plus they state that xbone has more launch countries. If you go to Microsofts xboxone wikipedia.com page and Sonys ps4 page you will see that PS4 launches in 29 countries, and xbone is launching in only 13 countries!

Eonjay1463d ago (Edited 1463d ago )

This makes sense and the data has been holding firm. A few months ago I predicted 933,000 PS4 in the US. I was able to do that because of the reliable tie ration between COD and PS4. According to the same data Xbox One will ship between 760,000 and 800,000. If its more than that then it will mean that titles like Ryse and DR3 are becoming more enticing. We will find out soon enough.

malokevi1463d ago

The site lists KZ as an Xbox game. Experts on the subject, no doubt.

ChrisW1463d ago

If Xbox Live doesn't falter like PSN did, I'm going to assume that the latter simply didn't have the capacity to do a multi-region launch.

Why is that funny? Who cares how many they sell as long as whoever wants one gets one.

MRMagoo1231463d ago

There will be enough xbones sitting around for ppl that dont want one either lol

thrust1463d ago

Magoo are you really that stupid or are you trolling?

its hard to see that on this site sometimes the Sony fanboys really do believe what they say.

jjonez181463d ago

Really puts the feat sony accomplished into perspective huh?

Belking1463d ago

What feat? they lost money on each one sold. Ms will be making a profit on day one.

MysticStrummer1463d ago

@Belking - That's what happens when you sell weaker tech. I'd rather support a company that takes a bit of a loss while bringing better tech to their customers, but I'm not surprised that you ignore the part where Sony makes a profit as long as a game is purchased with the console. The early numbers show PS4 buyers also bought an average of three games, so yeah Sony is making money. Carry on with your BS, good soldier.

Burrito26a1463d ago (Edited 1463d ago )

@Belking. They made $18 off of every PS4.

DragonKnight1463d ago

What the hell are you talking about Belking? I costs Sony $382 to build a PS4. Do you know what that means? That means, negating other costs of launching a console, strictly selling the unit makes Sony $18 per unit. How is that losing money on each one sold?

As for MS, we don't know how much it costs to build an Xbox One, but we do know that MS is taking a considerable loss on each Kinect 2.0 sold, with some rumours suggesting it costs as much as the console to build. If anyone is losing money, it's Microsoft. The Xbox Division has never been out of the red since its inception. PS3 may have hit Sony hard, but PS1 and PS2 made Sony A LOT of money, money that MS has never come close to making (in terms of final profit) for their entire foray into gaming.

Geez, just because you're an MS fanboy doesn't mean you have to post outright ignorance.

first1NFANTRY1463d ago

you guys are a shame to aussie gamers. how dare u pick up the inferior console and not sony's beast?

Dragonborn3121463d ago

9 hours? Lucky! I have to wait more than 24 hours still haha. After those horrible 24 hours though I will be able to see you on the tracks! Great time for gamers.

B-radical1463d ago

900,000 in the USA is more then expected tbh with all the bad press x1 has got. I dont see x1 going away anytime soon

trunkswd1463d ago

Right now it looks like the PS4 will outsell the Xbox One lifetime. However, the Xbox One will still sell really well despite not being #1.

nasnas761463d ago

Does it really matter who sells the most? Having a choice on 2 good products is a luxury. Imagine if we only have 1 choice, how much and what progression and how long would that 1 product take for the next generation? Would be the worst thing for console gamers. Competition keeps all companies on their toes to keep things innovative as inexpensive as possible.

Xsilver1463d ago (Edited 1463d ago )

only 1.2 mil worldwide "WORLDWIDE" http://s712.photobucket.com... if that happens i can the MS right now http://media.portable.tv/wp...
