you don't get  my point if shipments were as of December 31 stock probably wouldn't be a issue right now.

I'm talking about switch software vs ps4 software as a whole. You are always cherry picking titles to put your Nintendo games up against. Ps4 has so much more software for buyers to choose from. It makes far more sense just comparing overall software. 

what? PS4 will sell at least 3x more than Switch, just because it has a proper 3rd party support. tbone just compre Zelda Switch and FFXV PS4. I don't see any problem here

That's the point. Ps4 gets proper 3rd and 1st party support so obviously it's games will have less chance of outselling Nintendos first party. Remove the 3rd party support and I guarantee you Sonys first party games sell more.

Here is the comparison of software sales in Japan in a comparable timeframe:

PS4 in 2014, launch in February - 2.584m
Switch in 2017, launch in March - 5.973m

Ps4 has more games to choose from so i can't compare Zelda to FF its not fair

 

Edit:  thank u for showing this. Thats interesting

You've been making a habit of cherry picking these comparisons. Compare like with like. 

 

You should do a WW switch software vs ps4 software comparison though. That will be fun. 



People preparing for the MHW release next week, combined with reported Switch limited hardware and software numbers results in PS4 taking the 1st spot.

First half of post: The absence of third party support on Vita didn't make Sony's games sell better. The opposite happened and they all did worse. The explanation is simple: Due to the lack of third party support, hardware sales on the whole suffered which in turn decreased software sales. If there's a lack of third party support, the burden of selling the hardware is on first party software. Sony's games aren't up to that task, so your claim doesn't hold up.

Second half of post: Why are you trying to bait tbone51 into thread derailment? This is a thread about sales in Japan.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

That comparison we all know Ps4 wins hands down. My thing isnt cherry picking. If i were to say 2 years ago hell even last year that Latest Zelda would outsell the Latest FF im pretty sure people would be bashing me (japan). Thats far more interesting as it happening is so low (at the time).

 

I said Zelda vs FF because Zelda is actually close to that of FF in the latest entries.

If anything,  the shipment for that last quarter would be higher, leading to shortage of inventory for this quarter.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Not baiting. Its a legitimate point. He makes many biased comparisons. I've noticed the pattern.

If you made these predictions back then it would be admirable. Instead you make them after the fact when it's a lot more likely the Nintendo game wins. Some of your comparisons are good however.

Do you think that doing what you accuse him of makes you the voice of reason?

With how much switch is selling globally, including in freaking the big mainland european countries, ninty might not be able to stock switches properly without shortages anywhere else. Plus right now they have holiday rushing backlash of peobably quick shipping of units that would have otherwise been january stock.
Amd keeping high stock WW is much more important than in japan where it basically already has 30% market share already if we disreguard handhelds (both of which are REALLY starting to slow down).
