OMG, do you think I care if a FIFA game sells more in Japan on the switch than the PS4??? Who buys FIFA games there anyway??? Irrelevant. I ONLY care about worldwide numbers. Who freaking cares about individual territories??? If the PS4 would be a total flop in my country but was a total success elsewhere I'd still be playing on it. The PS3 was a European favoured console and to me, was a success over the 360 because of those European numbers. It sold enough in NA and Japan to make the overall worldwide numbers a success.

The point of the post eludes you........I am not really interested in what you care or don't care about. The post is pointing out a data trend that should make you reexamine your claim that only Nintendo fanboys are buying the switch. If a game that typically doesn't do well on Nintendo systems suddenly starts doing so well on the switch as to be selling more than it does on the PS4, that is certain confirmation that those who typically do not buy Nintendo systems are buying the switch. Furthermore, if you see this trend being repeated in Europe (and I suspect this might happen soon in France), it is a sure sign that the switch is selling well to those who typically would not buy it.

There wont be a big 3rd party game on switch ( most of them wont come to the switch anyway ) that will sell more than on the ps4, never ever. Worldwide is what counts, not nitpicking single countries or territories



Dang, that's crazy, and it doesn't have a gimmick like the Wii did. Quite a good job for the system. Hope it keeps the pace going.

It's amusing to see those who, a year ago, said "HD Rumble and removable controllers don't sell systems" now having to see that yes, no one cares about those "gimmicks" and they aren't even close to why the system is selling.  I wonder what they'll fall back on/move the goalposts to next.

Yeah, it's likely selling due to its function as a hybrid console, which is a gimmick in itself but not quite like the Wii, and it's line up of games. But yeah, just glad to see it doing so well

Sony and MS sell a lot better than Nintendo in UK... unless you expect that Fifa Switch have the same shelf space even when selling like 30x less.

Fair  comment but i was talking about the Wii days and the fact that later, PS360 had more shelf space than the 3ds.  Also, i'd say the Switch is equally, if not more popular than the XBone over here.

Well I don't know how was the shelf space on Wii times, but sure if stores were letting more space on the start of gen to PS3 than to Wii they were making a mistake...

Or as someone commented could be a market strategy from sony and ms there and Nintendo just didn't want to compete.
