NES Classic is not a game console. It is in a category called Plug in Play. Counting it as a console is ridiculous. You can't buy games for it so its sales have no influence on game sales in the industry. What it is is a smart idea by Nintendo. What are the numbers btw?

Finally.... someone that gets what I am saying or my issue with the NESc.

You cannot buy games for it, you buy the box and thats it. Done. Finished. This is like buying a one of those old school hand held game things that allowed you move a car left and right dodging oncoming traffic.

I mean its a great ide by nintendo, but its not really doing anything to or for the industry as a whole.

November 2017 (Month after Wolfenstein II launch)

PlayStation 4

1. Call of Duty: WWII
2. Star Wars: Battlefront II
3. Assassin’s Creed: Origins
4. NBA 2K18
5. Madden NFL 18
6. FIFA 18
7. Need for Speed: Payback
8. Destiny 2
9. Grand Theft Auto V
10. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus*

TNC launched October 27 so it seems it sold more in November. So not hard to imagine since Switch release was June 29 that it could show up in the July NPD.

It might show up next month but i wouldnt count on it though, it failed to hit the top 10 on XBO in Nov and just barely reached it on PS4.

I just think it shows how flawed his argument is when it clearly didnt set the charts on fire during its initial release.

Why do you keep saying things like this? Nobody is claiming its stealing sales from other consoles or that its their rival or that its doing anything for the industry as a whole.

You just seem to have an issue with people pointing out that it outsold PS4 this month.

Quickrick done it again, pure gold. 

You shouldnt be talking you were going on how april, and may would blow away switch last year sales, along with ps4 2015.

To be fair he and many others underestimated PS4 and XB1 too.

The contradiction i see is that he said Fortnite would have no affect and now its one of the reasons why it was clear June was going to be a good month.

It seems we all underestimated Fortnite. It is clearly one of the reasons all the consoles are doing so well this year. But yeah he should have expected more impact from Fortnite, since we saw the boosts PS4 and XB1 got from it in previous months.



Still no hardware numbers?

Speaking of PS4 2015, i updated the NSW 2018 vs PS4 2015 thread with the current NSW estimates (~325k, ~50% higher than last year)

Its now 1560k vs 1520k in PS4 favor, very close first half of the year.

+50% on switch and doubling xbox is on hardware numbers or dollars? Even if is dollars, can't we estimate(at least switch, that has just one sku, and is the same of last year?)
Is it compared to last year ou last month?



Any word on NieR X1's performance? Had it even charted in any reigion?
