    VGChartz has undertracked the PS4, and overtracked the XB1 several times compared to NPD. I can't imagine how off they are outside of the US where there is little to no information. They are useless.

    I suspected ~9.5M, so 10M is not far off. Sony has obviously been doing a better job of allocating units. Certain countries have had plenty of supply for months, while several countries in EUR were still heavily understocked. Sony seemingly has just been stocking those countries better, so it's no surprise that they sold far more PS4s outside of the US. This also makes the 3.5M shipped in the quarter make a lot more sense.

    Europe? What about South America (10+ countries), Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, and the United Arab Emirates (7 Emirate States).

    You're ignoring a lot of territories there!

    Well when video game companies break out the geographic regions in fiscal reports, everything outside USA/EU/JAPAN is pretty paltry. And noting UAE has 7 separate states doesn't change that it must be .01% of world sales.

    Canada is somewhat substantial, though. Generally figured as 5-10% of USA sales and not included in NPD. And Australia, while smaller than Canada. Mexico might even amount to something these days.

    Gotcha, so EMEA is one zone. Where does South America fall? I doubt they're selling many PS4s in Brazil with their import duties but Sony look to be supplying most South American countries.

    Guesses and assumptions don't equal fact.

    NPD/MediaCreate/MCV can only gauge a certain amount of worldwide sales within a given territory or region. Not to mention, most do not have direct access (sales numbers) from e-retailers and Sony owned store/site.

    Let me guess... Sony is lying to the public, it's investors, and doctoring financial records/reports as we speak. Got'cha :roll:

    White Kinect-less XB1 + SO for 400$ ranked higher than PS4. Actually XB1 ranked higher than PS4 on Amazon for the first time in the past few months. Microsoft should be happy about this little victory if it takes longer than a week.

    There's no evidence of that. The continued strong software sales for the 360 (especially compared to the PS3), show that there is certainly more motivation for PS3 users to migrate than for 360 users. I'd say Sony got a larger than expected PS3 to PS4 migration while my gut tells me that MS is bleeding more 360 users than they'd like (or expected), the strong 360 software sales counter your conclusion that Sony is getting "most" of 360 upgrades.

    Delusion? Talk about a loaded statement. Insight into the mismanagement of the Xb0x is going to be a great read, but I don't think delusion factors into it. Competing interests between the original vision for the console VS what the MBA's came in and said would actually be profitable and how the multiple compromises between the two resulted in the mess that is the Xb0x will be the story.

    That's some rather impressive numbers. I see a similar issue as the Destiny PS4 though, none of this will matter until release.

    When are these SKUs released? Those are going to be some big number months. Especially if they're ranked persistently high over several weeks.

    FWIW, PS4 hit 10 million around the 10th... it seems The Last of Us Remastered had a nice impact on hardware sales.

    The reference was to the contract that allowed the split. I don't remember the details beyond that MS had rights to at least Bungie's first game, kind of a right of first refusal. If Activision and MS got together and worked something I out, I would love to know what that was and I would guess at this point MS would take it back in a heartbeat considering the potential value of Destiny as a franchise.

    You keep using that word... ;)

    Yeah. But it was strange that they did not mention TLOU Remaster sale number. Maybe they are waiting for 10m ps3+ps4 joint sale of the game.

    Yeah, was to be expected. It will probably continue to drop, then sales will pick up again closer to release. If it mostly stays in the top 20-30 like the Destiny bundle, all the way up to release, then that's pretty impressive. Otherwise making it to the top 4 doesn't really tell us anything.

    I think they can hit at least 16 million by the end of the year but thinking something like 17 million is also on the realistic side. There's a lot of big games coming out and a second wave of sports gamers upgrading to the new gen. Between now and the end of October they should easily have 11.5 million worldwide, and after that comes the juggernaut that is the holiday season.

    I think 15mil is a total lock tbh, they'll prolly do 2+ nov-dec in the usa alone with a similar number for eu (sub 2 maybe?) ontop of the ~mill a month it's moving atm (aug+sept+oct), barring supply issues I think anything under 17 mil is unlikely.

    Or

    They're selling about a mil a month, there's 5 months left in the year, 15 mil seems like a done deal already.
