Whoa, that's an excellent result from Switch. Up YoY even without New Years week, which is the largest week in January.

It also means VGChartz is undertracking Switch, assuming that it's not going to sell 98k in the US next week.

Yep based on this sites numbers for the first 3 weeks of the year, NSW is moderately undertracked, PS4 pretty close and XBO way overtracked.

Nice, so switch was up on last year with a whole week less to track right? 

Yep on a weekly average

NSW up 31.5%

PS4 down 4%

XBO down 46.3%

Holy shit so is ps4 only down 4% with a week less tracking? Almost 2:1 over the xbox. I told you, Scorpio and gamepass isn't changing things. Games are what ultimately matter and it looks like the momentum gap between the two is getting larger.

No, that's the weekly average.

Great month for Switch and really bad month for XBO. I wonder had the XBO any bundles or discounts in January?

XB1 $50 price cut towards the end of the month and I believe the xbox x was $399 which crazily is the price of the PS4 Pro. Not only are Sony heavily outselling them but the profit margin must be insanely better.

Good result for Switch any way it's looked at.

1. Up year over year in monthly sales.
2. Significantly up year over year in weekly average.
3. Almost outsold PS4 and XB1 combined in a month of one big release for Switch and two big releases for the other two consoles.



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

God Damn, Switch had an amazing January this year!
PS4 did fine.
XBO.... ouch.

Edit: Wow, I guess Kingdom Hearts 3 and Resident Evil 2 didn't really do much of anything for the PS4 and Xbox One. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised, I mean they are over 5 years old and the majority of the Resident Evil crowd was already on the systems thanks to 7. But Kingdom Hearts... I was expecting more of an effect than that. If that's really it, than the YoY drop for those 2 systems are gonna be bigger than I thought.

Oh boy, if it weren't for that then the Xbox would of likely been sub 100K.



I hope ps4 is doing good numbers in Europe. The switch is a beast
