It is pretty clear that Switch conquered the US by now. PS4 doesn't even get close anymore. Though that could still change with a pricecut from Sony - although Nintendo can do the exact same, and probably will sometime this year. I mean, a console without a pricecut during it's first 3 years would be something radically new.

I don't think either of them is gonna make a price cut this year. They both have shown that they are in for maximum profits this time around.

Hell, there might be a price INCREASE in the U.S. with Trump's dumb trade war.

Nintendo have already more earned than MS in gaming business.

Doubt it.

I expect Nintendo to win most months by a good margin until next gen.

I would even say the next 2 years, the next gen needs to build up some momentum first while the Switch is probably around it's peak.

Idk cause Nintendo consoles usually burn out sales wise quicker than other consoles in the US. By 2021 I could see Switch sales starting to drop.

If we assume PS5/Nextbox release holiday 2020 we're 18 months away.. I could see PS4 take a couple if LoU pt2, Death Stranding hit stores in this period (they should) but outside of that.. I'm not sure how many months Switch would lose in that span.

At this point, I don't think any single game can give the PS4 a win unless it's in a really slow month like what May is shaping up to be.  It feels like Sony has gotten just about every major audience they can and all that's left are the bargain hunters waiting for a huge price drop or sale.

Well I'm pretty much in the same boat, but if any game could push it above the Switch. It would be one of those two..

If anything a massive pricedump would probably be the biggest chance for PS4 to win a month, but I dont think Sony really cares at this point. They are selling at a steady rate at a high price. Cant go wrong with that at this point.
