No monster Hunter out of stock. The digital code rises and so does the $60 psn code. I think we know why.

It's safe to say this is beating expectations everywhere. Even in Japan many shipments are selling out.

Considering that switch is usually over represented on amazon, and it hasn’t outdone PS4 by a massive amount this month, AND PS4 had major system sellers whilst switch did not. I reckon

PS4>Switch>xb1



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.

Lol, what?

Every single time Switch wins on Amazon people say this crap and every single time Switch ends up winning NPD anyway lol. There are two Switch SKUs that are ahead of the first PS4 SKU in the ranking.

Monster Hunter World isn't a system seller outside of Japan. Street Fighter and Dragonbal Fighter Z aren't either. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Oddysey are however, even if they came out months ago.

It's a valid opinion. It's because of NPD results compared with Amazon rankings that people believe this. 

I personally think Switch will win by a good margin because it had 2 consoles a lot higher than its nearest competition for the majority of the month. Too high to even allow this offset (if there is one) to come in to play.

You should look at the monthly chart.

Switch-12, 17

PS4-36, 54, 65

XBO-51, 71, 73

Switch will outsell PS4 and it won't be close.
