With Destiny now on store shelves and a bunch of gamers biding their time before the next-gen dive, PS4 sales should rise significantly in September.
I know right? I'll admit I didn't even bother reading the article because it's so obvious to me.
today marks a couple of historic events. not only is it Destiny day but also the 15th birthday for the Dreamcast and the 19th birthday for the Playstation in North America. Greatness all around.
I expect sales of the game to be great but I don't know anyone who has been waiting to buy a new console to play Destiny. I don't think this game is going to move a whole lot of hardware on either side. Especially since you can just buy the game on PS3/360, what is the incentive to upgrade?
@XBLSkull do you think Sony is backing Destiny big time with no prospective to push console? what world are you living in? heck MS secured TF for an early release on the Xbone to push sales earlier this year too! was that pointless too?
XBLSkull I expect sales of the game to be great but I don't know anyone who has been waiting to buy a new console to play Destiny. I came across two people who have done just that and I was on a football forum at the time lol
And Xbox one...
@XBLSKULL: Right here. My system is in the mail. Gonna be playing all this weekend.
He didn't say Sony wasn't trying to gave Destiny move systems. All he said was he didn't see it actually working. Just because a company does something for that purpose doesn't mean it works everytime. I mean look at titanfall. Side note : went to pick up my copy an hour ago and there were 3 teenagers in there buying xbox ones. Asked why and they said Destiny. Most likely halo fans. So it seems no one is right
Soooooo I'm guessing 1 million Glacier White PS4's Sold with Destiny?
I was at the midnight launch for Destiny and they had over 600 preorders of the game just at that store alone but the one thing that surprised me the most was that they had over 100 pre-orders for the white PS4 all paid for in advance. I know I saw at least 20 people walking away with the white PS4 bundle and I was toward the beginning of the line. I was at a store in Cary NC. I couldn't beleive it.
@Solidt12 yup Sony bet on the right horse to move more consoles.
Well you can count 1 more here. Greatness delivered via UPS. It has been a long day at work. 3rd PS4 I purchased. Gave the other 2 as gifts. But held out for the white one myself.
Nice hope it sells like 100000000000000000000000000000 00000 -_- but for real the game that will destroy TF is finally out so happy
I'm curious to see how much the game sold in all platforms. It will be interesting to see how it stacks against titanfall, seeing how it was supposed to be the "next big thing".
joke post?? titanfall on x1 didn;t even outsell Killzone, destiny on ps4 alone will outsell Titanfall week 1.
I hope tf will come to ps4 in a year or so. with all the dlc and patches the game could definitely be worth it
Good! Destiny is awesome, been playing since this morning 11.00 :-D
I started at 3:30 this morning NYC time lol. I stopped playing around 12-12:30 to take a break
I started 11.00 Holland time... just a couple of minutes ago I turned my PS4 off...
Well who didn't know this???
Of course there will be a rise in sales. PS4 is absolutely wiping the floor with that other console.
There's another console? Well this is news!!!
By how much will it multiply? Over 9000!!!!!!!!
Man i was on the fence about even getting destiny due to it being kind of repetitive in the beta (yes i know beta is only a small piece of the pie, but it still was repetitive), however i bought it anyway and although i didnt get a console i bought a pair of glacier white headphones lol so yes Sony is going to cake off this!
Well, YEAH! The PS4 will have the largest increase. Sony was brilliant to jump on Destiny and make a bundle. This is fantastic for the industry as a whole. Let's not forget that.
totally agree. I hope that destiny is as good as activision wants us to believe it is
I hope so, too. I picked it up at midnight last night. I won't be able to play it until tomorrow though. :/ Off work at 4. School until 7. Then, homework. Haha.
Bungie does it again. All these years so many people doubted them and hated them, now it's all love. Good job, I hope the game does well.
I little too soon to say "all love". Destiny is still only hype. I am sure there will be plenty that don't like it. So silly people want to already proclaim it game of the year.
"So silly people want to already proclaim it game of the year." Not really. It's been a pretty slow year so Destiny is a clear contender even if it's only good and not great.
Well its been hyped a lot so expect it at the nomination list. And in my personal opinion, we've had pretty good games this year, but most of the better ones ive enjoyed are the remasters (last of us, diablo 3). There hasnt been a new ip this year to really blow me away, watch dogs was good but not goty material. Again this is my opinion...
It would seem PS4 will be at 11 million by the end of this month.
for all we know, it already is.
Damn, I wonder how much hardware they'll sell by the end of the year.
Its only September and it could be close to 11m already for all we know. 14-15m in its first year is not an impossibility. Staggering.
It looks like the PS4 will runaway with this gen, just like wii did the last time. There will be a flood of games over time, it ain't even funny. Destiny is just the start. When the likes of Drake release . .and many more new ips down the line..it's a wrap. No matter how many consoles you own, you'll need a ps4 at some stage. For the moment, all I see is X
Yeah I was just at the mall. And I walked past 4 people who had just got the PS4 Destiny bundle. That was in a span of 20 min. So I would say it's def gonna be a system seller. But I'm sure it will be the exact same for X1. I don't see why it wouldn't be. I haven't looked, does the X1 have a Destiny bundle?
I already have one and IM going to get the Destiny bundle for my brother's room.
MS didn't learn from the great 360 release n ps3 poor release...Sony learn from 360 n ps3... I love my X1 but MS just thought since they had a great run with 360 everyone would buy X1 but we see that's not true
I'm actually seriously considering finally picking one up this week, if not next week. Opportunity may finally be presenting itself.
im gonna laugh if it sells more then xb1 in worldwide sales for september after all those tier 2 country releases lol. that being said its sad the xbox one has such a negative perception when it really is a great console. the snap feature is just awesome and has some great exclusives coming this holiday.
I think it's going too. Japan PS4 launch albeit slim was still a bigger deal than xbox one. I'm sure the rest of the territories mirrored this event as well.
I've got 4 friends that waited to get a PS4 just for this moment.
Well duh... Destiny is only on PS4... Right?
