PS4 Oct 2014-297k

PS4 Oct 2015-275k

PS4 Oct 2016-235k

Yep, its so unimpressive........

October is always a fight between xbone and ps4, but switch is a new console, that just recently has good stock, launching with a gigantic title, so in context it's not impressive, and you look at predictions threads, nobody expected sales this low.

XBO - 329k oct 2016

XBO: 303k oct 2015

Ya i got it, doing comparable numbers as PS4/XBO in Oct is bad.

Either way you're being overly negative for no reason, not only are you calling a win thats comparable to PS4/XBO best Oct unimpressive, you're also making things up. The post you linked says just a little under 300k yet you posted it did under 290k.

I predicted 360k. mario bundle, plus huge hype for a true mario 64 sequel, thats the highest rated game of all time now, ALONG with switch stock being available everywhere. these numbers caught me by surprise.

Wasn't ~300k pretty obvious based on previous npd results?

We have it slightly over 2.3m through sept and Nintendo reported 2.6m a few days after mario odyssey released.

To me that seemed pretty obvious that it did around 300k give or take.

sorry i meant to write it did near 290k.

not really. 300k was the lowest number, it could have did 380k and nintedo could still say it did only 2.6

Like i said before, ps4’s time at the top is over. Nintendomination is in full effect. Ps4 had a good run but the switch has beat it most of this year. GtS even seems to have flopped and had no effect on hardware sales.

PS4 will continue selling well but it feels as if it’s days at the top are behind it. I’m genuinely shocked at the switch’s performance. I didn’t think anything could dethrone ps4.

You are comparing launch period of Switch (still hard to find) with its main games (Zelda, Mario Kart and now Mario) with the fourth period of PS4 and that only in US.

Exactly. A hard to find console 8 months after launch is beating a 4 year old console which some say could be its peak year with games such as gran turismo, horizon, uncharted, crash bandicoot and more. And no it’s not that hard to find lately. I’ve seen ample supply at target Best Buy and amazon in recent weeks. 



Awful month for PS4 if it can't get to 300K. Blame GT Sport and its terrible 1P mode.

Is #17 a good result for FE Warriors? How many copies would that be?

I don't understand how T2 can be satisfied of 2K18 at #9 in the Switch-centric chart. That doesn't seem like a lot of units...
