PS4's European advantage has diminished to the point where it's no longer enough to keep them close to Switch globally.

Selling within 85% of 1st place is indeed close. Especially when it's a percentage difference from the lowest total sales week of the year thus far.

I wouldn't all that close honestly. "Close" would be like if PS4 was selling, say, 95% of Switch.

Well, I can't argue with that. I really can't! :) Just a difference in philosophy I guess.

Especially globally in the U.S.A.

This would mean that Nintendo's systems combined make 240,803 units and the combined sales of Sony/MS comes to 242,444, just 1,641 units in the difference between Nintendo machines into hands and the other 2 combined. This would definitely be a time when companies who haven't already got their shit together and prepared to port some titles over to the Switch now have to be feeling the pinch of that choice a small amount, I would think that it's very likely we'll see some form of GTA or big franchise from EA making their way onto the Switch during this E3, the system has gotten to the point where if resources are being spent on an X1 port of a game and not a Switch conversion then teams behind those have to be aware that there version would need to sell 4x better to achieve the same numbers as if the game was ported to Switch instead.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Word about the PS5 is trickling out, which will make people think twice about buying a PS4 and just waiting instead. I'm really surprised how close Switch and PS4 have been in Europe the last few weeks. That's Sonyland, but the Switch is only a little bit behind. Even a year ago I wouldn't have suggested that being possible.

I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking that. Also, since PlayStation 5 will be backward compatible, waiting for it makes even more sense.

Well, if the person that wants to play PS4 games is Ok with waiting until the PS5 release, that is.



Xbox One has Wii U numbers. Ouch. Hard times for MS. I don't think that the All Digital will move a lot of units or show some significant legs.

I doubt the PS5 is having much impact on PS4 sales as it hasn't even been properly revealed yet. All we have are some scarce factoids and insubstantial rumors.
