After doing some research (and a little math) it turns out that the PS4 had a bigger September than previously thought, putting up the second best September sales month in NPD history.
Thats pretty freaking impressive , still curious to see how much the xb1 sold because its hard to compete with that , if they are somewhere between 250 and 300 they are probably happy as well .
im seeing ads featuring sunset overdrive and forza horizon.etc ... seems to make the xbone seem interesting and maybe next month they will get good worldwide or atleast eu numbers. ps4 is doing as crazy as ever. how close are they worldiwwide to how the wii was doing in its first year?
You literally said nothing for anyone to disagree with and yet....
How i feel right now with this news http://media.giphy.com/medi...
Do you own stock in Sony or something?
@CerealKiller if he doesn't have any stock in Sony, he can't be happy the PS4/Sony is doing great last month? which planet are you from?
I'm not hatin' I just wouldn't be that excited unless I had a financial stake in the company. I guess that's just me though since I don't really understand fanboyism.
God, anime people are just the worst...
If your console of choice dominates sales then the future of said console is guaranteed, not just in support but also software developement. No developer will look at the PS4 numbers and ignore them, the PS4 will be their lead platform, the software will make the most of the PS4 and ultimately if sales continue exclusivety would be a serious consideration. As a PS4 gamer big sales is indeed good news.
"If your console of choice dominates sales then the future of said console is guaranteed, not just in support but also software developement. " Because support for the PS brand was really ever a problem right?
@CerealKiller What a silly, bitter comment. It's funny you mention stock, for while a PS4 owner may or may not have any, all console owners have made an INVESTMENT in their respective plaform's ecosystem, just as surely as Sega Saturn users made an investment in the Sega Saturn ecosystem. Great sales are a strong indication of a viable ecosystem. Weak sales get you the Sega Saturn. It's not hard to understand. It's sad you found eleven people to agree with your outburst.
@Septic Because publishers and developers just support the PS brand on the strength of its magnetic personality, right?
You're butthurt bro?
Congratulations to Sony.
A man loves the Kingdom of Heaven profile pic! And yes congrats to Sony and the fact that Wii achieved this in its peak year is very promising for PS4 which likely won't peak till 2016 or so. For a system to sell this much in its first full year on the market and for that system to be a Sony one (which traditionally sell for long periods) as opposed to Wii which pooped out in 4 years is very promising for Sony.
@realgamer890 Probably because the reference flew right over his head.
The gap in the US market may close when Halo MCC drops in November.
Really??? MCC will close a 1 million unit gap?? OK.
Cod Bundle and Assassin's Creed bundle the same month also. Using some good marketing they could pass the PS4 in November, and they have the deal with Cod, Assassin's Creed, and Dragon age all in the same month. Not saying they will sell 1 million in a month, but that will carry over to December to, same with the Playstation, but the only known title I can think of that has a decent large audience is LP3 for it.
@thenew1 Just like MS had deals with FIFA and Madden, both games are big big sellers but sold better on PS4. Ghosts sold better on PS4, even with MS having that deal with Acti, just look at Titanfall, MS hyped that to hell and back, PS4 still out sold it. Not even giving away free games has done anything.
PS4 has the GTA and Far Cry bundle/deal though...
Leave the fanboy dream, after all it's their only left hope
I see MCC as being a game that will sell to alot of the existing XBO owners and most big halo fans probably havent waited this long even after all the promotions to buy an XBO the day it comes out. MCC will sell bigtime and I'd be shocked if it wasnt #1 for the month in the USA but it would be shocking if it actually pushed more than half a million XBOs, in the meantime the competition doesnt simply stop selling units.
That GTA bundle is a perfect counter to the MCC. November would have been a runaway for MS, but now that a PS4 GTA v bundle is coming it'll be interesting.
And if that does not do it?...I guess you guys will have dx12 next year and DA POWESZZ OF TAH CLOUDSSZZ...lol
I haven't heard much about the cloud lately. I wonder why that is.
Um...no it won't. Sorry.
And just think of this. Systems' first years on the market are traditionally their weakest sales wise until they peak in year 3 or 4 or 5. So the PS4 is only going to go up from here and it's due to sell 13-15m this year!
I would say the Wii disagrees with you. It's peak year was its two years on the market really (only selling 4 million more in its 2nd year then first hitting 20 million then 24million units per) it rode the hype train into oblivion. A great start is good, but after selling 44 million in 2 years, it only sold 56million more in the 6years after that. The same could happen with the PS4, and the same may not happen. Time will tell And I'd like to see gribbles sources, he seems to just spew random numbers and info without sources quite often
Yeah, lets take some shots! Patron on the house. Just kidding, drink water.
Could u pass the orange juice (•ิ_•ิ)
Coffee!!! (I hate coffee)
Especially with worms. Yuck http://thedamnveggies.files...
Congrats to both Sony and Bungie very good numbers they're just killing the competition ;)
Sony yes, but who is Bungie's competition? They're not competing against their own XB1 game, or PS3 or 360 version
I like seeing when the PS4 is doing better than the PS2 did at times. Let's me know that the great times aren't just in the past.
The ps4 is a great console I agree but to even mention in the same sentence as the GodLy creation that was Ps2 is so disrespectful
I wouldnt say that. PS4 is competing and selling great and with all the games on ps4 right now... in comparison the PS2 launched like crap to very little competition. It didnt face real competition until the following year and it was from gamecube which most felt was geared toward children and the original XBOX which was mostly home of all the homeless SEGA games and very little first party. It had HALO but halo wasnt a big franchise yet. PS4 is doing this well in SPITE of stiff competition and a higher price than PS2.
The PS2 took a year and a half to hit the PS4s current sales. Its been less than a year. It was "supported" for 14 years because it had almost no online support to "support" only needed game releases. Even PS3 still has games coming out. The PS2 was prone to CD Laser problems preventing the playback of PS1 titles or alternately causing DVD/PS2 DVD not to work and CDs to play.... it also had some failed addons and was the weakest console of its generation unless you count the dreamcast which was only marginally weaker. The PS2 sold super well and was an amazing system with a ton of games but PS4 is shaping up just fine. If the first thing you bring up is SALES though just know the PS4 is easily selling on par with PS2 during the same timeframe and there are more people and more markets open to buy a PS4 , its about to launch in China and that gave a nice boost to XBOX ONE so I Dont see why I wont be similar for the playstation.
Sorry but I think PS4 is actually doing better than PS2 did, and if this continues PS4 may indeed replace PS2 as world's biggest and most popular gaming console ever!
Congrats to Sony! Competition is good.
Lets face it, we like when MS is down because they actually try (of course phil helps).
Wonder what February 2015 is going to look like
Amazing! Just wait until the GTA V bundle hits!
Fantastic work sony. Now please hurry up with that new firmware update. Can't wait to put some new themes on.
Congrats. They did well to market a big game like Destiny.
the 360 held the top spot in 4 out of the 10, and Destiny sold better on the XO, based on the NPD, that's ironic, to me.
That is standalone Destiny. NPD doesn't count bundles. Anyway, Xbone gave Destiny for free. Combine Destiny PS4 standalone and bundles, you get much higher numbers. Sony gave a statement : http://www.hardcoregamer.co... Even the MS PR didn't say anything about Destiny sales. WOW, just 120k FH2 360+Xbone combined. Sad for such a great game. Well, even the first FH didn't make impact.
Well if you paid attention to FH2 you have known that it was released on the 30th of September , and when was Destiny given away for free on XB1? Do you have any proof?
whats gonna happen when GTA drops
You mean the PS4 GTAV Bundle that has already been leaked? Another blowout.
GTA will do incredibly well but imagine an Uncharted 4 bundle.
Even with a. Month like that people are still hanging on Xbox balls
jumping ship is the right was to do......ms f!!! up to much ego!!!
