Switch, once again, leaves its giant boot in the PS4’s ass =)



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

NS first again.
In the last few weeks NS has been starting from a baseline of ~230k kept quite stably with some spikes up to above 250K and even 270k, while PS5 has been hopping up and down between ~200k and ~230k.
Both always between very good and excellent anyway, with any other console left behind by a wide gap.
XBOne decent as absolute sales in a slow period and considering the competitor it must face.
3DS decent too, considering its age.
OTOH, sadly, teh undead portable is actually finally dying.

3 months in and we are still close between PS4 and Switch. The lead of switch may increase.

Yes they are both on top of their game and doing very well indeed!

I am just wondering if the numbers change are more so do to Yoshi or the PS4 sale ending.

If I had to guess, I'd say the PS4 sale. Yosh is good, but I'm not too confident in saying its a sales booster. More of a complimentary title to me

Yeah I can definitely agree with that.



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Has there ever been a time in gaming history where two titans as powerful as PS4 and Switch have gone head-to-head like this?

It seems in every other instance where a system was this successful (PS1, PS2, Wii, PS4 before Switch) it left the competition in the dust and there was simply no contest.

I'd say it is more a matter of timing than anything else. Nintendo essentially 'reset' the gen for themselves (while also doing so in one of the most successful cases ever). PS4 left its original Nintendo competitor for this gen in the dust (Wii U). Switch is a unique case (though that's not to take anything from it).

In the late 90s-early 00s, PS1/PS2 & GBC/GBA.

The PS4 isn't that far behind the Switch, honestly.



The recent adjustments made the gap between switch/ps4 look way more severe

Whoops, yeah, PS4 40k below what was posted before, while the Switch is 20k lower, and the XBO 10k lower.

Wonder if the other weeks also got adjusted down.

The gap between Switch and PS4 grew with the adjustment this week from 35k to over 50k. That starts to become a considerable gap, let's see what the quarterly reports next week will tell us further.
