lol... that reaching.......

I'm surprised the PS4 won a week... if we can call it that, pretty much a tie.

I still feel the PS4 has no business selling so well though.

I honestly expect some minor adjustments, I dont see any reason why PS4 & Switch would be so close in North America based on Jan/Feb NPD and insiders saying Mario Day deals caused a notable increase in Switch hardware sales.


PS4 is doing really good but PS4+XBO is on par with PS3+360 in a similar timeframe so it does have business doing so well, it's basically just making up for XBO doing so poor.

PS3+360 week ending March 26, 2011-326k

PS3+360 week ending March 24, 2012-285k

PS3 March 24, 2012+360 March 26, 2011-313k

PS4+XBO week ending March 23, 2019-306k

I gave a few different comparisons and all show that PS4/XBO are doing similar to PS3/360 at this point in their lives.

Great data...... on another note I guess this is all irrevocable evidence that the PS/XB are in direct competition with themselves and not with nintendo. How well or poorly they do seem to have no effect no be affected by how well/poorly the nintendo platform is doing. And with the HD twist it surely seems that one doing well is usually at the expense of the other.

This is also why MS really wants cross platform play to be a thing. Makes a case for the Xbox if you don't have to own a playstation to play against someone that owns a playstation.

Did the same thing happened with Xbox One and PS4?

Who really remember here when exactely was repeated and confirmed the rumors of the PS4 Pro and X, so we could check if the next few weeks had a 10% drop ?

Have you checked these before answering me so confidently ? Do you really think that only us here in VGCHARTZ are smart enough to use internet and read about the next console we would like to buy ?

Okay I see. So it was just an opinion without any facts or evidence. Because I thought you had some facts which made you reach that conclusion. 



Pocky Lover Boy!

Yep it's pretty crazy how directly they affect each other while Nintendo is it's own thing. If we look at lifetime sales, PS+XB sales have remained incredibly stable.

PS2 (157m)+XB (25m)=182 million

PS3 (87m)+360 (86m)=173 million

PS4 (120-130m)+XBO (50-55m)=170-185m

PS4/XBO are obviously just estimates but they should both end up really close to those numbers.

And ya that probably is why they are pushing for it so hard, alot of people simply buy the console their friends/family have which causes a domino effect where the more popular console just continues to become more and more popular. With cross-play this becomes less of an issue and people can buy the console they prefer without worrying so much about having no one to play with.



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

PS4 and NS quite strong even in slow periods, XBOne more than decent, considering it must compete with two strong market leaders.

No fact, but it could be interesting to investigate if there was an impact on the 2 weeks after the first strong PS4 Pro rumors. For me it makes sens, they announce it like for the first time a "sure thing" about the Switch Pro, and we see a drop of 10%. It is not a collaspe, it is a little drop. The 200.000+ people who buy a switch every weeks are not just brainless consumers who just buy a product, although 99% of them are much less expert than users here.

is there a link for the SW chart?? I dont see it in the front page.



I see Sony in diffcult position. When you are at year 6 an you selling like in year nr.2 and you  about to lounch a new console next year. When you look at the exclusive games for this and next year It seams like the PS4 could go for at least 2 more years untill PS5. How to lounch a new system when your old is still as hot as new baby (switch).  Lounching PS5 is gonna be very difficult  act (getting the message right).  Its easier fo MS to get into the next gen. They have nothing too lose  and almosy everything to gain.
