I’m thinking we’ll hear about some big releases from Sony. Not to mention PS4 is at a point in which a price drop isn’t unheard of.

Like what? Sony hasnt really been known to release big 1st party titles over the holidays this generation.

Red Dead 2 bundled with a price cut would definitely prove noteworthy. Guess that’s not really something we haven’t heard about but I’d imagine that would definitely drive PS4 sales throughout the season.

Depends if Sony give the ps4 a long overdue price cut or not. $100 price cut + BO4 + rdr2 + kh3+ fifa + bfv + spiderman should ensure ps4 sells a lot this September - December. Switch could beat ps4 but unlikely to dominate.

mainline pokemon didn't propel 3ds into  new heights

No but it did give it a massive year over year boost and by far its best Oct ever.

Oct 2011-755k

Oct 2012-875k

Oct 2013-1620k

Oct 2014-975k

Oct 2015-350k

Oct 2016-440k

Oct 2017-515k

I expect a nice boost, 600k for the month it launches, then everything will be back to normal.  keep in mind 3ds was much cheaper as well.

Gotcha, the way you worded made me think you were talking about Sony developed games.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

The pokemon game is a remake of yellow, not a spin off. The sooner everyone looks into it more than the reveal trailer and realizes that, the sooner we can seriously discuss this topic.

They even stated its a mainline title so i have no idea why anybody is calling it a spinoff.

I know right?  Well in any case, this plus Smash is going to make Switch very hard to beat this holiday.

 

Then next year we have Bayo 3, Metroid Prime 4, and a NEW mainline pokemon coming...not even counting anything else that gets revealed.

 

This year started slow, but it seems more and more like it is just a calm before a massive storm when it comes to moving more consoles.

I think it will depend on how much Nintendo will be willing to play the Price-war.  If they play greedy then it will happen the same as last year.



as long they dont have a stock issue, with Smash/Pokemon, they should do pretty well

Nintendo needs to bundle the Switch with either Odyssey or MK8 if theyre arent going to price cut. Especially if Sony and/or Microsoft do $199/189 again.
