That’s probably a mix of LY’s sales, tool predictions and more deals on XB than on PS4.



Around the Network

I’ll say :

Switch 2.1m
PS4 900k
XBO 1.1m



Switch: 2.2m
XB1: 1.1m
PS4: 1.0m

But there is: history, deals vs no deals and insider hints.

There is however nothing that supports that PS4 would outsell Xbox in December 2018.



NSW- 2M
XBO- 1.2M
PS4- 850K

I think we are going to be surprised at Switch sales. Super Smash Brothers and Pokemon alone would cause a massive leap, but the word of mouth of Switch since last year, rise in popularity of Fortnite throughout the year, and kids asking for Christmas gifts is collectively going to create an additional bump. I know 2 kids in my family who asked for Switch for Christmas just to play Fortnite on.



I won't make a prediction but I'm guessing there's been some rumors for everyone's guesses being so high for Switch?



Signature goes here!

how would XB ever outsell the PS4 in any time period?  It's amazing, boggles the mind.

I tracked many different outlets and the PS4 outsold the Xbox One at each one.   Thats how I correctly predicted that PS4 would beat Switch last month even though earlier I had said it would be Switch.  Its because I actually observed.   Going by last year the Xbox One should have beat switch in November.  But looking at the retailer charts you could see the opposite.

Everyone predicted it because of their insane Black Friday deal ...
