Switch > PS4 > XB1



So, more than 500k? I wonder how much more.



Switch should be at least 550k-600k, they would need that much from the US market to hit 2 mill WW.

Neogaf is using it right now. Other than that - no clue.

Thank you !

 

MS PR time.


So far only Microsoft has come out with a public statement regarding the results. Xbox Corporate Vice President of Marketing Mike Nichols shared the following:
 

This past quarter, from January to March 2017, we saw record Xbox Live engagement with 1.1 billion multiplayer hours logged globally, a 14 percent increase year-over-year. Looking ahead, we are excited to share more about our plans for Xbox One, including launching the world’s most powerful console – Project Scorpio – alongside an amazing lineup of new Xbox One games. We are thrilled with the incredible response we have received to date for Project Scorpio, and look forward to sharing more about the Xbox One family of devices in the coming months.

They can't even stick to March, they had to reach back several months to get that random PR.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

MS couldnt even use the this month when comparing YoY improvements even in their rather meaningless xbox live activity scale. their PR is really hitting the bottom of the barrel.

The linked article states that it's speculated to be around one million. More than 500k is for the first week alone.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Interesting that when talking about hours played on Xbox Live Microsoft isn't talking about just the month, they're talking about the entire quarter. Amount of hours played in March down YoY?
