Most likely.

Good job Noobie.

Boutros is still with us. Nice.

Well.... Didn't know the Switch would beast like that! Surprising to me!

Check the NPD archives listed at the OP



Pocky Lover Boy! 

And the consoles are split 4 each. Good to see the PS4 getting some competition. Now fight over who gets my playing time. JRPG fight, go, go.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

What I expected, given reports of Switch's larger shipments and it being one of the slowest months of the year for ps4 (July and August are usually pretty brutal for console sales in general). September is more interesting, as theoretically Destiny 2 should be able to push PS4 to high numbers, though the game itself has seen a fairly hefty decline in other markets and the Destiny 2 pro bundle isn't likely to generate near the sales of that first Destiny white bundle. I wouldn't be surprised if the month is very close (between Switch and PS4) again. 



You can all thank Ethomaz for the lack of leaks this month.

Switch top10 from GAF

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1433470

Switch:
Splatoon 2*
Mario Kart 8*
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild*
ARMS*
1-2 Switch*
Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers*
Just Dance 2017*
Lego City Undercover*
Cars 3: Driven to Win*
Minecraft: Story Mode The Complete Adventure*

Fate Extella didn't hold, while Cars 3 did. Safe to say that Switch audience wasn't interested and that it didn't pass Marvelous's test. Further information on Fate Extella Link should enlighten us.

Can you show me the flying colors with which PS4/V owners passed the test in Jan & Feb NPD results?
