It's weird that Europe still buys so many PS4s but so little switches. I mean Europe really does drag switch down. It should at least be 80k there but no it's horrendous when you compare it to everywhere else. That one game that breaks switch totally into Europe will be the game changer, if it ever happens. Maybe animal crossing since they love games like that apparently. Switch basically owns US and Japan until new systems release so the only battlefield left to win for the youngest system is Europe but PS4 will not go down easy
Well, from a German PC hardware forum I could get that they consider the Switch mostly too pricey and too weak (well, many consider the One X too weak there, it's a site for high-end PC gaming and upgrading after all, but the Switch is special case there). However, they do see the game lineup and consider it worthwhile if the price comes down. It should be noted though that a PS4 is generally cheaper to find there than a Switch, as almost all the time at least somebody has a promotion on the PS4 going, but that's rarely the case with the Switch.
@Setsunatenshi: It's not just that, it's also their background as Computer gamers. They are used to higher-end graphics, a department where Nintendo traditionally lags behind. Also, much more Playstation ads than Nintendo ads there.
