Why do i always see this switch vs ps4 in post where ps4 sells incredible well? If you know what i mean.

Yes ps4 launched November, @400bucks without any big game.

Yes switch launched at march @ 300 with freaking zelda and got a big mario game the same year.

Ask yourself this question.

Besides ps3 where sony fucked up badly, did they ever got beaten?
I'll answer.
Noo they did not.


Yes switch is a hybrid, but i think that Matters more in japan then anywhere else.

If you think this year whas insane,just remember next year we could see a bf ps4 @180 or 199 with a game.

PSP/Vita?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Nice spin. You know damn well that not all days of sales ae equivalent. 10 days of sales in November makes a big difference.

So what you are saying is that Nov is a bigger sales month than March? In other words Switch is at the disadvantage? Ok we agree then, thanks!!!

Yes it is. Unless, of course, March is a launch month, of course. So we’re comparing - launch month for the PS4 vs launch month for the Switch + Nov for the Switch.



First time in months the narrative for Nintendo is bad again, seriously i just want my favorite game company to do well and is that so wrong



Ps4 is killing it. Xbox one is killing it. Switch not so much

If you dont see it the other way just as much than you are just ignoring it, plain and simple. People have been trying to downplay Switch doing well all year long.

Also PS4 didnt have any big games? What do you call Call of Duty, Battlefield, Madden, FIFA, NBA, Assassin's Creed? It had all of those day 1 and had them all again by the end of year 1 with Watch Dogs, Destiny, GTA, Last of Us as well.

You cant use the cross platform/multiplat/port excuse otherwise you cant include Zelda/Mario Kart as big Switch games.

Saying PS4 had no big games in its first year is revisionist history, it had one of the biggest system selling 1st year lineups ever.

PSP did great, the only thing about it that could be considered a fuck up would be the fact that it lost alot of potential software sales do to piracy but it sold over 80 million units of hardware.

It’s not bad at all. It’s just people had huge expectations because Nintendo was winning NPDs and Japan despite the shortage. I think the first shock came in October when despite no shortage and SMO the Switch didn’t “beast”.And now articles were already written on how the Switch won Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday so with the Switch not winning despite having no shortage issue, it might come off as negative.

oh i see thanks 

have no prespective on these things



Fact is PS4 is a monster. Switch is doing really fine, great numbers and lineup. But you can't ignore PS4 success, it's pretty crazy.
