Damn Switch!



Around the Network

Switch : 383k
PS4 : 253k
XB1 : 221k

Compared with last year:
Switch: +24%
Ps4: -29%
XB1: -26%

YTD 2019 (Welfare)
NSW: 1.03M (+20%)
PS4: 730K (-25%)
XB1: 550K (-35%)

Above from Ethomas, neogaf.

My take:
Xbox has had so many sales trying to move units (reg. at 199$ or below), and its still down 35% this year.
Sony should consider a price drop for the PS4s and PS4pro too, that about it, its end of the gen and its time for a price drop.
Switch about to have its peak year.

Great numbers for Switch. Very solid year over year growth in 2019 despite no change to its MSRP yet.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Damn I was off this month!

Underestimated the Switch and the X1 quite a bit while overestimating the PS4 quite a bit as well.  But I´m really glad to see the X1 surpassing my expectations for a change.

I shouldn't have corrected the Switch down by 10k, would have been almost perfectly correct.

Overestimated the PS4 a bit and underestimated the XBO quite a bit, but all in all not too far off.

How does it stack to the weekly sales charts? Adjustments incoming?

lol But that was actually your closest prediction!

You were only off 9K on your NS prediction while being 14K and 32K off on the PS4 and X1 respectively.

Waaaay too early to say that. We still have new models very likely coming this year, which will drive it forward next year into new heights.



Liberate Hong Kong, the revolution of our times!

Ps4 is still selling well at $299 but it definitely needs a price cut if Sony want to improve its sales. Don't think sony care at this point. It is still selling very well WW.



Im curious about nintendo's forecast for switch in this 2019 fiscal year.



Wow! Awesome sales for Switch! Not sure if it had any big releases during March.

From my memory it almost had 2million for US + Japan alone for Q1?



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Swtich lead have been quite steady this year.
