    More missleading numbers from Lie$oft that mean absolutely jack sht because after Black Friday their store use probably plummeted back to normal. Nothing but meaningless PR bs with no way to compare it to anything to measure it.

      Actually they base it on a target set and yes they did good or did you think they would base their standard on Sony considering Sony’s target for black Fridays has never eclipsed their except maybe this year which is still not certain as their are differing reports.

    Great, but we need to let Sony win overall to keep them safe.
    Lets stand together and support a fanatic recovery.
    This makes us the best fans agreeing to give Sony this generation.

      Support a fanatic recovery? Is Misterx ill?

    Funny thing is, it’s totally irrelevant because the competition matched it on home turf. That mean worldwide demolition. I’d say it was a shame, but it isn’t.

    • Truthβ„’

      The funny thing is PS4 was completely demolished in consumer spend by PC Gaming on black friday so it’s becoming increasingly irrelevant too.

      $15 emulation. LOL

    • Rodney Patrick

      Stfu and dry your salty tears

    • Cypher-Unknown

      Speaking of idiots….hello gorgeous!

    • Fweds

      SONY ARE CHARGING $15 FOR YOU TO PLAY A PS2 game, that’s PLAYSTATION 2 on the PS4 NO matter if you already bought the originals.

      You lapdogs are so gullible.

    • Mr Xrat

      Then I won’t pay them. It’s not difficult. Meanwhile Xbox drones lumbered themselves with the Kinect like good little idiots. πŸ™‚
