Switch isn't the best performer here it's the ps4 in its 6th year. Yes 6th year

But by the looks of it, this will be one of the last times it can achieve that, needing both critically acclaimed releases and a pricecut in japan to edge out a Switch without anything notable at all. Still, it's doing great for it's age.

One Super Mario Maker 2 rolls out and the slew of summer/fall releases start boosting Switch sales, I don't think the PS4 will be able to pass the Switch anytime again unless with some very big release (like a TLOU for instance) at a slower week for the Switch.

Japan has been the reason why Switch has been selling more than PS4 for weeks this year. It is the difference maker. Take it out or make the Switch numbers equal with PS4 and PS4 would be outselling it every week.

Note: I don't care for the PS4. Just stating the obvious that this is more impressive for PS4 with how old it is.

Europe has been the reason why PS4 has been selling more than Switch for weeks this year. It is the difference maker. Take it out or make the PS4 numbers equal with Switch and Switch would be outselling it every week.

See how bad that argument is now?



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

I think that the people in this thread who are saying the PS4 is 6 years old would enjoy this video a lot and even learn while watching it! 



State Of Play really boosted the PS4.

Good for them just like directs always boosted Nintendo hardware.

Nope. Turn your thinking about and you'll see the answer.

By the end of the year, switch will beat ps4 by a million or 2 which is nothing special considering the popularity and portability factors of switch and the age of ps4.

That would be true if everything stays at the current speed.

But while Switch should accelerate during Summer and boost in Fall with all the announced game releases during that period, and then go into overdrive during the holiday season with Pokemon and probably Animal Crossing this year, PS4 will mostly slowly slide down in sales, even with a 50$ pricecut, and  just boost a lot for Black Friday.

In the end, the difference should be more around 5M, if not even more than that.

Only Cyberpunk could exponentially increase PS4 sales like RDR2 did. Even with TLOU2, DS and GOT all releasing in 2019 it's hard to believe that it will put a fight to the Switch unless there is a PS4 Pro price cut.



PS4 winning by the slimmest of margins...

I still think the PS4 can pull off a 16m+ year in 2019.
So the only way the Switch wins by over 5m+ lead, is if the Switch ends up doing like ~21m this year (imo).

It *could* happend, but Im not sure switch is gonna hit something like that, so its win this year, will very likely be much less than 5m.
