PS4 definitely needs a price cut. My guess is they're waiting for Sept like they usually do.

It'll be interesting to see how the announcement of the much cheaper Lite affects Switch sales.



Around the Network

Nice boost for the Switch. But I wonder how the next weeks will be now that the Switch Lite has been announced. Speaking of which, does anybody know the prices of Switch and Switch lite in Japan?

Great second week for SMM2 and third week for YW4

PS4 is going solo again

Vita beating XBO again now



I don't think it'll affect sales that much as both consoles are catering two different demographics: the ones who play in TV and the ones who don't. It'll be ala DS. Hope this new version sales implode as the first DS did

We have to consider that in Japan standard Switch is also sold without dock



Another week with a new PS4 release another spike for the Switch.

Does anyone have a FF14 comparison? I think Shadowbringers sold better than Stormblood, but I'm going off of a finicky memory.

Only from the Nintendo website so it's a really niche thing that the majority of people dont know about.

This is smaller, cheaper, has longer battery life and is sold nationwide at retail so they really arent comparable situations.



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

Outside of the PS4, which is understandable, it has been a good week.Great to see the Switch doing well.

Didn't know that, thanks for the clarification... You're right, they aren't comparable situations

No problem I think we are going to see some crazy sales in the coming months. Switch Lite in Sept, Pokemon in Nov, Animal Crossing in March......
