Forums - Sales Discussion - UK: Nintendo Switch sales above XB1 for the year, but below PS4

According to Christopher Dring (ex MCV)

This says more about the X1 sales than it does about the other two. The Switch is young and has suffered supply constraints out of the gate, yet, it's beating the Xbox brand in one of its major markets. This is made worse for MS by the fact that the Switch wasn't available for customers during January and February.

Meh..... everyone in the UK must be waiting for the scor.... XB1X

Wonder if the holidays can reverse this. Supply issues and X1X release could put X1 above Switch for the year. Though we don't know how much of a distance is between them.

That could turn around very quickly by the end of the holiday season. I'd probably wait until the end of the year before making a comparison of the console's year sales performance.

Xbox 360 and Xbox One

PS4 is going to do like 18-20m this year total, I suspect.
So its kinda a given that its above the switch this year.
Nintendo simply didnt plan on makeing enough units, to outsell the PS4.

Predictions (from jan 2017):
This year PS4slims hit 199$ during the holidays.
This year PS4 sales go over 18,5m.

We're talking about the UK here stock shortages doesn't apply. Even the author of the tweet says so.

Did you not read the OP. PS4 "is" above the Switch. And was Nintendo plan to beat the PS4 in the UK?  There is no way that was going to happen.
