Heart says XB1/X, head says PS4, I'll give the slight edge to XB1 because of X and stock issues for PS4

XB1 1.3 mil
PS4 1.29 mil
NS 1 mil

Hearing news about these consoles selling pretty well this month is nice to hear. I think in the end, we all want these consoles to do well, regardless of which console you primarily play on. There shouldn't be a downside of either console doing well. I know its a response most have heard and don't care for nowadays, but a healthy big three is great for the industry.

Looks like it's been a crazy few days.

Reuters mentioning PS4 as the best selling, Adobe mentioning Switch.

With the momentum of the Switch, great pricepoint of the PS4 Slim and Xbox One S and the hype for X I could really see this going any way.

In terms of sales I'd probably go with the PS4 but revenue, I'm gonna guess the Switch.

PS4 1300K (Big stock issues)
Switch 1250K (Some stock issues)
Xbox One (Some Xone X stock issues)

Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

PS4 1400k
XB1 1300k
NS. 1100k

Lots of little things stopping wild swings one way for me. I Think PS4s Achilles heal will be the Battlefront 2 consoles. That bad press will probably make a huge chunk of those bundles not sell till discounted. But they will be around taking up space of what would have sold.

XB1 looks ok enough for it to be close. But only close because of the X launch. Without that, I think this gens decline would have been cemented as almost terminal.

I never expected to think Switch probably coming 3rd would not be stock related. I think I bought too much of the hype. Looks like the demand has dropped from insane to solid. I'd expect those unsold switches will add a decent buff to December's figures either way.

i kinda want the switch to win, but i highly doubt that is possible - insiders over at ERA have said that at least for BF, xb1 and ps4 absolutely smashed, being $100 or more cheaper. whilst those some people say switch sold better in the earlier weeks of november, a majority of sales come from the BF period so i'm fairly confident we can assume the switch will finish third. (i dont know shit tho so im probably wrong as usual lol).
mine would be...
PS4: 1,600,000
XB1: 1,400,000
NS: 1,000,000
bonus 3ds: 400,000

software i have NO clue whatsoever. like none. but predictions are fun so:
1. COD WW2
2. SMO
3. US/UM
5. AC:O
6. Shadow of War
7. MK8DX
just dance somewhere in top 15??
20. skyrim switch
.... i really dont know other than these tbh

Bet with flashfire926: I think switch will win November NPD, and he thinks xbox one will win (if ps4 is victorious, it's a draw). Loser has to state that they lost in the signature for some time.

XB1: 1380k
PS4: 1300k
NS: 1000k

XB1 (With XB1X): 1,350,000

PS4 (With PS4 Pro): 1,300,000

NSW: 1,100,000

Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

[NS] 1150k
[PS4] 1100k
[XB1] 1050k

I think it will be like this because Switch was the most sought after item on black friday according to adobe analytics
