The PS5 Exists.

I find it sad for the switch, I'd get one in a heart beat if it was only a console (no portability) and came with the pro controller (or whatever they call the latest iteration).... I creally could not care less for the portability features and the built-in controllers, I won't pay for them just to let them sit there!

 

In my case this is a 480$ (Canadian $ is worthless these days)... just not worth it when you consider you can get a ps4 pro for about the same price (and I care more for Wipeout + God of War than Mario + Zelda, however I still like them...)

Hopefully down the line the console will get cheaper. Or make cheaper versions like the 2DS



Pocky Lover Boy!

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

In April, the PS4 stayed in the Top 20 for the month (#11), even with the still new Switch and a few of its games taking some of the top spots.  The XBO didn't even chart.  Yes, it's quite obvious that the XBO was down YOY, while the PS4 was up YOY.  And we already know the gap grew by ~400K+ in the first 3 months thanks to the prediction threads on Gaf.  And both consoles stayed ~$250 last month.

But hey, that's what happens when one has exclusives, while the other does not.  Well, it did have Halo Wars 2, but that went nowhere.



320k for ps4/x1 in April? Saw on gaf. X1 had to be very low then. Like maybe 100k x1 vs 220k ps4?

Fire Emblem Echoe is almost perfect score so far.

What did you think of FE: Fates?



Surprising to see the PS4 outselling the Switch on Amazon in the hourly chart.

The Switch is being sold at a $100+ markup, the fact it is even or slightly higher than the PS4 (2 SKUs in the top 25 vs 1 SKU) is impressive in itself.  And it's being sold at a markup because it has sold out every new shipment almost instantly, hence why both SKUS are above the PS4's highest in the monthly charts.

It's the same price as the PS4 on release though. In any case, this shipment has been lasting several days now.

Wat?  This shipment isn't lasting, these are resellers or small time retailers who sat on a paltry numer to sell for $400. But the Switch has been available 100% of the time on Amazon for these markups.  It's sold out on Amazon itself, like the majority of locations of ever major retailer in this country.  That's why it is being marked up by $100 on Amazon.
