I'm pretty sure I predicted, PS4, Switch then Xb1.

Man MS Better hope the Xbox X makes lasting difference.

You have to wonder if the lower XB1 numbers have anything to do with customers being impressed by XB1X and holding off until the November launch, or are those same customers dissapointed and now buying PS4's and Pro's instead?

My guess is the latter.  At $499, my guess is a lot aren't going to see the resolution improvements being worth the extra $100 the X costs over the Pro.  Definitely not the $150-$200 difference it'll be this holiday season.  Maybe if MS went with a better CPU to guarantee 60 FPS, but they didn't, so instead you'll probably only see improvements of 2-5 FPS.  Again, not worth the extra $100-$200.

It also doesn't help with the lackluster display of exclusive content that was at E3.  Without real exclusives to push the system, more people are going to start jumping onboard the PS4 train.  Especially when we get a $199 Slim and $299-$349 Pro.

The report also confirms this was the PlayStation 4's best June so far, which matches up with the leaked numbers as it would put the PS4 > 366k, with the leaked numbers saying 381k.

And Jal leaked the numbers before Venturebeat published its article, so it was not possible for him to see the article beforehand and then make up the 381K figure to make it look correct.

Switch did better in June as I expected. That's certainly due to a bit more stock for Arms' launch week. July will be interesting to see how high it can go (more like, how many they can produce/ship).

Switch didn't really do better though. Stock remained the same In May and June at around 41-43k a week. June being a 5 week month naturally makes the absolute numbers better, but per week it was essentially the same.



So Crash Bandicoot is the top selling game on a single platform. Nice one Naughty Dog.

Damn, Xbox fans have got to be hoping that the doldrums for Xb one are all about people waiting to buy XOX.

Major victory for ps4 this month. Stretching it's lead over the competition big time this month.

I see... that explains why it's up. Thanks for the heads up.

Anyway, still nice since it held up instead of dropping. It points towards stock being limited like we all believe. A good sign indeed. I hope Nintendo can ship at least 400k for July.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

PS4's exploding, I really did not expect this kind of effect from Tekken & Crash :O



Wow PS4 is on fire. Hard to believe it has this much punch still so late in the gen. Seems as if it really has taken on the PS2's legacy. Poor Xbox is basically dead in the water at this point with no gears or Halo title this Christmas to fend off Sony and all their big third party marketing and bundles. God is almost doesn't seem fair lol



That's some savage growth for the PS4 yoy! Never expected that! This is highly unusual, especially in the summer and with fairly small game releases, Crash is a remake collection of older games and Tekken 7 had a paltry first week globally.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Wipeout, Tekken, Crash, Arizona Sunshine, a Gold PS4, and a $249.99 entry price sure helped the PS4 out in June. Sony has some great momentum right now. They have reached the point where a decent caliber title is coming out on the platform every couple of weeks, and there is just no stopping in sight.

Between the games, new services like PS Vue & PS Now, and new gaming tech with PSVR & the Aim controller, Sony has created some massive seperation between themselves and the other console manufactures. With every new Firmware Update PS4 inches closer and closer to being an all in one PC/Console/Media Box, and I think consumers are catching on.

Sony is in a very strong position right now, and well on the path to expanding the their console business once again. I still think 200 million PS4s is very possible, and it's life will be much longer than many are expecting. Sales are continuing to grow year over year, and we are just hitting the stride of true next gen titles, and full support from Sony World Wide Studios. God of War, The Last of Us Part II, Gran Turismo Sport, Red Dead Redemption 2, Grand Theft Auto 6, PSVR, PS Vue, Price drops, new models, new form factors, PS4 has massive potential to continue to sell at even higher rates for a few years to come.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
