Here we are at the final month of the year. 2013 is nearly over and time seems to fly by. As I get older, each year seems a bit shorter.
The PS4 launched in North America (USA and Canada) and sold something like 1.6 million units in 24 hours, setting a new all time record for console launch.
The Xbox One launched in the USA, UK and 12 other countries a week later and sold over a million units. I think 1.3 million?
Then on Black Friday the PS4 launched in the European territories and sold over another million units. WOW.
The console wars have been running hot. Maybe even hotter since the last set of launches in the mid 2000's.
MS might be experiencing the 3rd console curse with the Xbox One. It hit Nintendo, SEGA and Sony before.
The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special The Day Of The Doctor was a worldwide event that was simulcast in special theatrical features. It was epic. Very satisfying to whovians.
I got a PS3 super slim bundle Black Friday. $199 and comes with Batman: Arkham Origins and The Last Of Us. Great value. I wanted the $150 gold Triforce 3DS XL but those sold out. Same with the $250 Zelda Wii U.
No special discount for the PS Vita bundles. They are still the normal $199 price, which was the Black Friday price last year.
I also got a $199 Windows Surface tablet. But maybe I would have been better off getting a netbook? I already have a smart phone so the tablet is not a huge improvement for my situation.
Steam had a huge Autumn sale and the Winter Holiday sale is just around the corner.
