ok, makes sense.

I just don't understand why somebody would buy it after launch though? I saw them on amazon for awhile too, but it made no sense to me since the 'non-launch day' consoles were cheaper with a game included.

so in a sense, the fact it sold at all, seems to suggest an absurd amount of 'demand'. either they were forced into buying the launch console because the others weren't available(unlikely) or they just really wanted a launch console to have a launch console.

either way, I think looking forward from here will be more telling. now that ppl can choose freely which they want, and the convenience or ease of finding one isn't an issue, the hype should die down and we'll see what the consumers actually want.

I mean, if I saw a ps4 4 months ago, I'd be tempted to buy it just because I could, even though I'm not sure I want one. now that they are both easy to find, there shouldn't be any 'impulse' buys skewing the results. nor should there be a lack of sales due to lack of product.

April NPDs show exactly that, both systems were readily available and sales reflected the true demand for the consoles. (No major releases to improve demand either)
