Switch was around 280k right?  (from neogaf)

and Nintendo said that it sold about "half" of all consoles hardware, if you counted Switch+3DS.

That put Xbox One + Playstation 4, around 350k (or just over).

That probably splits to something like 240-250k PS4's and 100-110k Xbox One's.

It was a pretty slow month for xbox.

That's way, way too high for the PS4. It would be the best April for the PS4 ever, and an increase of almost 50% YoY. It would also put the XBO down around 40% YoY. Was the PS4 $250 last month?

I dont think the gap is that big. Here are last year numbers. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=216554

Last year the Xbox One was in the top100 lists on amazon.

This year, things are slower sales wise.

case in point (atm):

Switch #12 & #13,  PS4 #17, Xbox One #144.

 

If there is 350k hardware out there (mixed between PS4 & XB1), Im thinking the larger portion belongs to the PS4.

Also YES, the Xbox One this april is probably down from last years april by a large amount.

So, Spla2n over ARMS in Japan (by a wide margin), Germany, and ARMS over Spla2n in north America, rest of Europe.

Can also be explained culturally, kind of? Arms has a comic-book-hero feel, and involves colourful fighting (think wrestling, or lucha libre), so it's more popular in America.

Splatoon is squids, and got a manga, so Japan...

I think it's just because Arms releases earlier. I would bet that Spla2n outsells it in America as well, it's just that games tend to receive a rush in preorders A:) when they're first announced, B:) when a deluge of videos, previews or betas release, and C:) when they get close to release. But yeah, even though I think Splatoon will outsell Arms in most countries, it is definitely going to be most popular in Japan. They went apeshit over the first one.

Fire Emblem Echoe is almost perfect score so far.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the game is great, but 17 reviews (from early adopters - likely strong fans of the series, considering the poor marketing) is not enough to make any conclusions. Especially considering that few are likely very far into the game yet, so this is mostly first impressions.

 

Zelda has 4.8/5 from 1200 reviewrs. That starts to show some more credibility



Bet with PeH: 

I win if Arms sells over 700 000 units worldwide by the end of 2017.

Bet with WagnerPaiva:

 

I win if Emmanuel Macron wins the french presidential election May 7th 2017.
