I remember some people predicting Switch > PS4 this year. Should have been pretty obvious that wouldn't happen when Nintendo estimate they'll ship 10m consoles while Sony are aiming for 18m... but now we have further proof that PS4 will surely be #1 again this year!

To be fair, Sony sold 13.5 million consoles by the end of October 2014, Nintendo is expecting to sell 12.74 mil by March of 2018. 

That's not that bad considering small third party support, but yeah this year definitely goes to Sony!



X can't come soon enough

ouch

I guess sales may continue to slowly drop until it releases.

If the X1 can maintain this lead over the WiiU in Japan for another 28,443 weeks, it'll surpass it.

The future is now boys!

So only roughly 547 years to go, that's feasable...

I don't think he's suggesting that it's bad by any means. But that first year sales for a system estimated to be 10~12m by Nintendo probably wouldn't surpass what could be the peak year of another very successful console.

Yeah. In general anyone thinking it could would be fooling themselves. Don't most consoles have their most successful year on their 3rd - 4th year?

Exactly. I believe so.



The PS4 never ceases to amaze me in sales....wow. Peak year indeed! And man I hope the XB1X gives the XB brand a surge of life geesh smh. Switch....I mean shortages.....that is obvious......I might be on point with my prediction of the PS4 passing the 3DS by the end of this year if sales continue at this pace or pick up even more!

And look at the XB1 being ahead of the Wii U AND PS3 in Japan! Way to go MS lol!



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Outstanding year for Playstation, it's so nice waking up and having it feel like the good old days with Sony at the top.

Switch sales are impressive despite shortages as well, I'm blown away by how successful the Switch is performing, I've never really been impressed with the concept or hardware so to see it pull 4.6 in the first six months I'm really impressed by it and major props to Nintendo

Xbox is dire though, desperately awaiting the X it would seem, troubling however it's at that stage in June and with few big releases between this point and the X touchdown gonna be a hard year.



Playstation gaming for 18 years this 2012
