Forums - Latest Charts - Global Hardware 22 June 2019

Hooo, Switch is still leading even within the upcoming anticipation of Mario Maker 2 :o I sure hope to see it reaching 300K with a good title like that !

Pretty awesome to see VGchartz releasing the sales data for the consoles just 1 week out, it's crazy to think that there was a time when the numbers were 3-6 months delayed... it's a damn shame however that the majority of the people who were complaining that the delays were so severe back then... are all gone now.

On the topic of the sales though, it's pretty locked in that X1 sales each week are 150k below the Switch, which means next week could see a boost of the X1 up to the PS4 figures! however it does mean that if the Switch were to suffer a sub 150k week... that people will be returning X1's to shops faster than they're selling to create the first ever negative sales week on here lol.



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

It is nice to see people happy with the hardware figures being more up to date than they used to be. I do remember they were months behind as well. It was nice IOI handed over the reins to the team, so we can now keep things more up to date.

I admit, with such a long stretch without any big games, I thought they'd be a couple weeks in May and June where Switch lost the top spot.

Now Mario Maker's here, and with the stacked lineup for the rest of the year, PS4 will need a price cut to score any weeks at #1.

  1. Why would switch lose the top spot when the other consoles also aren't getting any big game releases.
  2. I think it's fair to say that there s no way (as it should be expected) that in its 6th year the PS4 should be outselling the switch at $299. Yes, it needs a price drop. That it's even still keeping the gap respectable is an achievement.
  3. And why is everyone forgetting that the PS4/XB1 are currently almost years old? If you guys really want to compare sales... compare them to those consoles 3rd years on the market.

1. It wouldn't.

2. Correct.

3. A quick look at year 3 sales aligned using the VGC tools will show you that Switch year 3 is slightly outpacing PS4 year 3.  The PS4 was a beast, so even landing slightly below would mean the Switch is also a beast, let alone slightly ahead.  At the end of the day, Switch sales are just plain impressive no matter what data you are trying to compare it to.

The gap between the Switch and Xbox One is only 7.5 million now, the next weeks will be interesting

Will be interesting to see whether Switch overtakes Xbone in lifetime sales by the end of the year.

Even these threads are dying. Where is the wow PS4 is still doing great considering it's age, Switch is killing it, Xbox is doomed crowds? This is going to be a long year and half wait for the next gen.

Well the ps4 is certainly the most impressive here but its true there's nothing more to see the gen is winding down



...not much time to post on here anymore, used to be some good ol times on VGchartz...

I thought that, too! I remember those times when hardware charts were 4 months delayed. Kudos to everyone who works on the hardware charts now! Even more respect, because summer holidays are around the corner.

I still would appreciate if we could also get some weekly software releases on this site to get an impression which titles could have moved some hardware.



What the heck happend to the PS4 in the US?.... thats on the lower side right?

May NPD had the PS4 at a weekly average of 35k units. The Days of Play promotion coming to an end puts the PS4 back to its previous level.



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