First week after price drop? I was expecting a little more from Xbox One this week. They have banners hanging from the ceiling at the door when you walk into GameStop advertising the drop. Whats up?

Nitrowolf23683d ago (Edited 3683d ago )

Yea, I'll be honest I thought the X1 would lead (not by much) a week or so in the us after the price drop, not the other way around. Just shows that price wasn't a major factor like everyone was making it out to be. This was also pretty known considering that the X1 been on sale for a while now before the official price drop/model drop

NextLevel3683d ago (Edited 3683d ago )

Price is only part of the problem. The Xbox One has an image problem. The hardware, mainly the GPU is weak sauce in comparison to the PS4. So the games output in weird resolutions like 792p, the general public knows the PS4 has better performing multiplats, look at the software numbers. My 11 year old cousin knows about the Xbox One's resolution problems, he just knows the PS4 is better. It's common knowledge. People bought their 65 inch TVs cause they want to use them and enjoy viewing content in the highest resolution possible, which is why the don't even sell 720p TVs anymore. The Xbox One also came out the gate claiming watching TV is the future, the general public knows this and didn't like it.

The image problem the Xbox One has, is that the PS4 is better. I don't expect this to change.

This doesn't take into account pre orders for the white PS4 bundle also, I think.... Which is also doing pretty well on Amazon.

It will be interesting, though, to see how far off these numbers are when the NPD arrives.

Those Vita sales are not too good, I hope they are seriously considering that PS4/Vita bundle.

torchic3682d ago (Edited 3682d ago )

@Death

tbf VGChartz tend to exaggerate Microsoft numbers so.....

and, as with all "new console" releases the numbers drop off after the first week...

if these numbers are correct then wow. but Microsoft deserve this, they've mismanaged Xbox since the advent of Kinect on 360. it's been downhill ever since while Sony were working 24/7 to improve the PlayStation brand.

bouzebbal3682d ago (Edited 3682d ago )

first there has been no price drop! they removed kinect obviously the price goes down with it.

well looks like PS4 is in for a victory for the sixth time.

i know VGchartz isn't a reliable source but still...x1 numbers might be lower than this as a matter of fact

Dolf0453682d ago

If the drop had hit with a killer game I could see sales improving, but we're not really at "killer app" levels with either console yet.

I expected a bump in sales from people who were considering buying last month holding off until now, but I'm not at all surprised it hasn't taken a major jump.

@ NextLevel

65 inch for only 1920x1080p ?? LOOOOOOL

65 inch is way to huge for such a low resolution.. for 65 inch you need 4k TVS....

URNightmare3682d ago

If this is the first week after a couple of weeks of "people waiting for the cheaper sku" then this is not a good sign for Xbox One at all. I honestly thought it was going to outsell the PS4 at least for the first week specially in the US.

NextLevel3682d ago

@pornflakes

You just proved my point. If 1080p suffers on such a large TV, what does roughly half the pixels at 792p look like?

MysticStrummer3682d ago

@pornflakes - It also has to do with how far a person sits from their TV.

OT - I'm as big a PS guy as many here but I'm also surprised by these numbers. I thought XB1 would get enough of a boost to get a small win for at least a week or so.

"Just shows that price wasn't a major factor like everyone was making it out to be."

Isn't this the closest PS4 and XB1 have been in the weekly numbers? I don't remember and don't have sufficient interest to look it up, but if so then the price drop and/or diskinect was definitely a major factor, just not enough to give XB1 the win. The numbers, nebulous as they are coming from vgchartz, are very close. Of course history says the real PS numbers are probably higher and real XB numbers are probably lower, so there's that.

ramiuk13682d ago

problem is you can get the one with kinect in uk for £15 more than non kinect version.
cex and game have loads preowned and there being sold for £300 with kinect which is £100 less than new and £50 less than non kinect bundle and they both offer a years warranty.

also the titanfall kinect bundle can be bought for £369 so an extra £19 for a game and kinect.

not sure price difference in US but its insulting in uk,specially as im sure MS said it costs voer £100 to make kinect 2.0.

morganfell3682d ago

More lies from VGchartz. Have they been paying attention? Yes and they still lie. Look at Amazon where the Xbox is doing worse than any month to date. It isn't even in the top 50. It is also doing worse at Best Buy. It is pretty much in the same spot as always at Gamestop.

Nice job N4G. Letting these made up numbers be published on your site when they are universally banned is doing wonders for your reputation among the rest of the game community. And you wonder why this place is seen as a 12 and below site.

GribbleGrunger3682d ago

As a member of VGC, I suggest people totally ignore these numbers until we get official confirmation. I've now completely run out of patience with this site; although the forums still have some great posters.

BISHOP-BRASIL3682d ago

@Death

Oh, now it's "It's VGChartz...". Was that were you stand last gen?

@On topic

Yes, it's VGChartz and why this crap hasn't been banned from here years ago as they were showed multiple times "adjusting" their numbers is beyond me... Still, this is what we had been saying here again and again, only to be called out fanboys or anti-MS or whatever. PRICE ISN'T THE ONLY PROBLEM. It's as simple as that. In fact, if I were a betting man, I would say the XB1 numbers are way too high, I doubt the sales bump was that big, simply because other sales track forms (Amazon and Gamespot) don't point at enough demand for a significative bump, also the bump come alone from people that hold off for a month (and those weren't that many to begin with). Had this came with some expected game
release, things would had been different, but as it is lowering the price/unbundling Kinect solves nothing.

But hey, it's VGChartz, they can just undertrack the next weeks or so if they need "adjusting" (seriously N4G, get a grip).

ThanatosDMC3682d ago

Great. This crap again. I've been marking it down but i guess they pay n4g somehow?

OT: Who owns n4g? Great guy. Thank you for this hilarious website.

mikeslemonade3682d ago

Same old bitching about VGC.. They inflate X1 and deflate PS4. We all know that but are you seriously going to wait one month for bragging rights. I get to brag now! PS4 beat X1 once again during the "price drop". That's the last nail in the coffin for X1.

ThatOneGuyThere3682d ago

its gotten to the point now where people who bought the XB1 are already giving up and getting PS4s. Its total domination.

Neonridr3682d ago

is it cool to use words like "weak sauce"?? I just can't bring myself to saying that word without feeling like I dropped a few IQ points typing out the characters..

NextLevel3683d ago

Why would you expect more? They sold 77,000 last month, 115,000 the month before and still got outsold when Titanfall released and everyone created incentive to buy it. The general public just doesn't want it, they want the PS4.

choujij3682d ago (Edited 3682d ago )

Titanfall should have been the big eye opener to many, as it was to me. Despite how hyped that game was, Xbone was outsold that month in it's strongest market. And that's on top of the incentives that Microsoft and retailers were throwing at people.

The fact is, there is no miracle that will "save" the Xbone. It's going to under-perform in sales and graphics this gen, whether people accept that or not. And the sooner we move past that, the sooner we can enjoy what each of the systems have to offer.

kickerz3682d ago

Whatever, so 38 000 people that just bought an xb1 are not "general public" do u even know what your saying.

Neonridr3682d ago

pretty sure they want both. Otherwise 4.5 million people wouldn't own XB1's.

FITgamer3683d ago

It's VGC, just have to wait until NPD. They also adjust the PS4 numbers down 300k.

elazz3682d ago

Which is weird since the PS4 numbers were only overtracked by around 40-50k throughout the whole month of May while being undertracked during all the others. But the best we can do is wait for official numbers from Sony

MysticStrummer3682d ago (Edited 3682d ago )

Many times, PS numbers actually have to be adjusted up, not down on vgchartz. They tend to underestimate PS numbers and overestimate XB's.

Wikkid6663682d ago

Wasn't a full week of sales for the new sku.
