Who Will Win FY3/2018 in North America?

Nintendo 70 46.98%
 
Sony 60 40.27%
 
Microsoft (not that we'd know) 3 2.01%
 
See results 16 10.74%
 
Total:149

So, out of 22 years, Nintendo won 17 of them? Pretty impressive. Should win this year again.



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

Wouldn't be that weird if Nintendo wins. They won all years where they had 2 consoles selling. This year for the first time in years they have again 2 consoles that are selling.

Yet sony won all gens besides the wii era. At least for consoles

Well, half won all gens. Don't forget that they both competed in the handheld market, which Nintendo won. It's like winning land battles, but losing all naval battles hehehe.

Interesting statistical data and it shows that Sony has really only done better than Nintendo in the last few years which many people mistakingly assumed to be the norm since PlayStation launched.

I'd say Nintendo will win this fiscal year because they are already ahead. Switch is a huge hit in the USA while the PS4 still has to deal with the pesky Xbox One.

The following years will be Nintendo wins as well because Switch won't have problems to peak higher than the PS4.



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

Is this just comparing the amount of money made? I'm stupid and confused

It's comparing the amount of consoles they shipped in each fiscal year.

consoles and handhelds?

sony didn't compete in handhelds in PS1 or most of PS2 years.  Also not now

Historically Nintendo is strongest in America and Sony's weakest. Seriously like the N64 was neck in neck with PS1 in the beginning. The Gamecube had more than half of its sales from America. So I was not surprised about Nintendo winning most of them.

Whatever you do, don't look at Europe sales historically.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

I find it weird that the 3DS's best year was FY3/2012 ( April 2011 to March 2012), I always thought its best year was when Pokemon X/Y released (would be FY3/2014).
