Yes, and for an Xbot like Teehee, this is expected to come out of him. :P

The other day Amazon ran out of stock for PS4 and it plunged down to 10 or lower I think it was before they got it back on stock today.

It's already propelled back up to #1 and Titanfall has already fallen to 6 and the TF bundle to 10. I mean, TF is getting beaten by an HD remake now of a fairly old game and Infamous is coming right up on it.

Of course X1 sales are going to surge when a big, anticipated game is coming out, March sales are probably going to be rather high as well for them. PS4 is STILL so in demand just naturally however, that places still can't keep it stocked for very long.

I wonder what teehee thinks of that >.>

Never understood how sales numbers matter so much to people who don't work for the gaming companies.


I think analyzing the market and business strategies to be exciting and interesting.

Some people worry about it for good reason. If the console isn't selling well, and the absence of purchases there's a 50/50 chance that the system will be discontued and done for. Look at the Dreamcast. While it did sell rather well, as soon as the PS2 hit the market, sales for the Dreamcast were next to nothing.

Finally, someone who gets it.

The sega dreamcast and saturn are two perfect examples of why console sales matter. no one wants to buy a console that will be ignored by 3rd parties later in their lifecycles and end up dying an early death.

The wiiU is an example of this happening in real-time. Verly slow sales. completely ignored by 3rd parties. only the hardcore fanbase is left, and even some of them are slowly coming to the realization that the wiiU is a lost cause.

I doubt that will happen to the xbone, but if sales slow down more and the ps4 continues at its current pace, i could easily see sony securing several major 3rd party exclusives beginning in year 3 (2016+) especially really big name japanese tittles.
