Sony sold over 100,000 GTA 5 + The Last Of Us PS4 bundles on Black Friday.
Seems quite low for a Black Friday compared to other years? I guess it's just one type of bundle? Didn't we see sales of close to 1m in past years on consoles? Edit, found it, it was 900k http://eawp.com/a/19667 Edit 2 I knew it was low, VG is reporting console sales over 1m for PS4 and X1
Nobody knows. There was one report saying the Wii U selling out at Black Friday and another report saying the Wii U sold under 360. People are so eager for numbers folks just need to wait. Btw @hammer you have the wrong console.
"Sony sold over 100,000 GTA 5 + The Last Of Us PS4 bundles on Black Friday"
"According to retail sources Ps4daily spoke to" Im sorry, but i just cant consider this in any way legitimate. I think we'll just have to wait for an official announcement or NPD
The 100K number is for Sony's specific PS4 bundle. It doesn't include regular PS4 consoles or bundles that retailers made themselves.
Most retailers primary deal was the black Friday PS4 bundle, it was in pretty much every big ad. It would be by far the best selling bundle.
@Foehammer No it's not low, and as your link points out those were 360 sales for the "week" and on top of that it was 2011 sales aka the 360's best year of sales that generation. And not only that it was also the first full year of sales for the 360 slim was out and had a $200 entry price. This is a single day of sales for the PS4, for a single SKU, at a $400 price point. Apple to Oranges comparison. Still not Apples to apples, but here is a better comparison. The 360 sold around 190k units for it's first Black Friday the week (aka Year 1, just like the PS4) across the US, here the PS4 has a single SKU sale over half of that with a single SKU in a single day. This is amazing for a Year 1 console at full price still.
Ehh I don't believe this... 100K seems low when consoles have traditionally sold more on BF than the rest of the month combined. It also cites the terrible info from the app that was wrong last year.
a single bundle? XD im surprised they had that many in stock. and low? well wait till we see other bundle figures :')
Well on Amazon the single bundle, in two days, outsold the regular PS4 for the entire month and there was only one other official bundle in North America. I'd say it would be accurate to say the GTA bundle outsold the regular PS4 everywhere too or almost everywhere given historical data for consoles. If the bundle selling more was accurate everywhere at the 100k reported that would mean the regular PS4 sold less than 100k and it has never dipped that low in a month. So it certainly had a lot of stock and sold out. It just doesn't add up and this site doesn't even cite its sources then mentions info from that app which we all know is hardly reliable.
Other Bundles probably sold well too. I personally bought the PS4, Little Big Planet 3, Lego Batman 3 Bundle off of Amazon. I also got an extra controller and COD Ghosts and I spent less than $500 for all of it. I am freaking happy. I am sure all of the Big 3 consoles sold well and everyone is making money.
Don't forget the Destiny bundle on many websites includes Amazon dropped to 399 for a while throughout the weekend. That also claimed thousands of sales.
100,000 GTA + The Last of Us bundles. NA only? 1 day? at how ever much $? thats good yeah XD i wonder how many standard bundles, and how many in the UK too ;3
UNDERSTAND That this is for one specific bundle!
Agreed. Maybe people would understand that if the title wasn't so vague/misleading. Nice hits though...:|
Decent but should've been more, if this holds up to be true. Anyways I can see the hungry trolls approaching. Keep ignoring that 10 month, possibly 11 month domination though along with the factors MS did to finally give Sony a fight. Look I'm glad the XBO is gaining some ground, hope they keep it up so we can all get great games all over. However again those trolls are going spoil what should be a great moment by making themselves look like idiots (for reasons stated above.)
Yeah duh, thats all you need this winter....... I mean gta 5 an tlou are the best games on ps4 imo
Destiny y is better than tlou in my op. Yeah destiny single is not the best but the overall package in My eyes is that destiny has alot more going for than tlou.
100k on a specific bundle during a day? Dam, Sony. That's a lot of bundles. My goodness. 1 bundle in a day = 100k. That's isnane
That number isn't at all ridiculous, that's just mentioning that specific bundle. There were at least 3 or 4 different bundles in the top 20 on amazon best sellers list the day of and after black friday. The overall number will be higher but that particular bundle moving 100k isn't bad.
Brack Fridy Bunduru!!
Don't forget Princess Kenny!
Its probably really close, or someone would be bragging about their numbers already.
Fanboys would rather believe Sony sold 100k bundles over BF total...it helps their cause! Anyway.... Congrats Sony for selling 100'000 GTA V/TLOUR (SPECIFIC) bundles on Black Friday ;)
As others have said, for only one bundle and one day sales this is very impressive. But it is also impressive that Sony accomplished this while maintaining their 399 price point and being priced 21% higher than the competition. Not to mention the insane marketing push of Xbox One and the release of Halo MCC (Despite the game being disappointing so far in some respects). This was not an easy feat. It is very encouraging and I'm sure Sony is more than pleased with these November sales as they prepare to generate more excitement at Playstation Experience.
Xbox One sold 1 million for 1 bundle.
Thats really low but was expected since the XOne counted for 53% of sales on black friday.I say the Xone did around 600,000 to 700,000
i was one of those people who bought a ps4 on black friday goes perfect with my xbox one :)
Well, I bought mine on Thursday...
