    Arron Greenberg and Major Nelson love fueling the console wars when the xbox has the lead. "We sold this much more, ect." but are quiet when they're losing. I don't recall Sony or Nintendo boosting about how much more they sold than the competition(during this gen). Diehard ps4 fanboys are going to set off a nuke if the xbone somehow is beaten by the ps4 in Nov.
    But my question I asked a while back was "how does MS possibly no how much Sony sold", they are already stating they sold more in 2 weeks, but Sony's numbers haven't even been released yet and there is just no way that MS got a magical piece of paper on how many Sony sold for two weeks.

    Nintendo always show their numbers in qt reports. Something that Sony nor MS does. Reggie does hate on MS and Sony's games though lol.
    Its all the same IMO. Andrew House was doing it on a regular basis last year. There was also that video making fun of Xbox one game trading policy. There's nothing wrong with that IMO. Its done all the time. Ford vs Dodge vs Chevy. IPad vs surface.

    I was basing it on the numbers and traditional Black Friday sales, which are about 60-65% of the consoles sales.
    If there numbers have tripled in the first two weeks, that would put them at about 102k per week
    i.e 170k/5=34
    34x3=102k per week.

    Times that by 4 weeks and that gives you a base number of 408k, now best case scenario would be 65% of sales would be black Friday, meaning this would be only 35% of total sales.

    408/35*100=1.16 million.

    Of course it could well be worse than that obviously, I think that would be the top end of sales.

    Developers still released multi plat games for these consoles since day 1.
    If the price wasn't $600, trophies wouldn't really have been a factor because majority of Sony's audience at the time weren't exposed to them or achievements.

    someone is forgetting that so many franchises skipped the PS3 version in 2006 and even some in 2007 because the development was a huge mess. in addition, PS3 has lost so many opportunities of ports that the 360 got and they specifically mentioned that it was due to development costs. Valve had to hire a team to work on Orange Box, they didn't even want to attempt it themselves. The Crew (while a lame game) is coming out on 360 because of ease of development. Serious Sam never came out on PS3 for the same reason. ease of development is a big deal.

    I don't know why anybody would ever think MS would gain ground on Sony they never have.
    The best MS will eve be able to do is compete.

    I still want to know how they can know the sales of the ps4 and WiiU for Nov.
    Deja vu no?

    Since the new Xbox One offering launched on June 9th, we’ve seen sales of Xbox One more than double* in the US, compared to sales in May
