*Switch wins the week*

Every comment: ZOMG, PS4 domination!

That's because the PS4 is pushing 6 years to the NS 2+ (it not at 2.5yrs yet) and still somehow only managing to be only like 13k behind the NS. 

I am sorry but there is more to take away from that than the fact that the NS is "winning" the week which should be expected considering the age of the consoles.

We should also account for the Switch having not one but two imminent announced revisions as of these numbers. Context matters, I get that, but the responses here act as though PS4 won the week. The reaction frankly seems disproportionate to the results.

You sound really sad. Ps4 in its 6th year still selling as well as the switch. If thats not domination i dont know what is.

Second place doesn't really fit my definition of "dominating".

Still outselling the switch so far this year while leading the switch by over 60m. Thats domination

Neither of which is relevant as that's not what people were responding to. The subject of the thread is the weekly sales for the period ending 27th of July, in which PS4 came in second. It just seems strange to me to so fervently celebrate coming in second place. Yes, PS4's age is a factor, but so is Switch just having had two imminent revisions announced.

I don't understand why you are so upset at the fact the ps4 is doing a well as it is. It's almost like no one is allowed to celebrate anything other than first place. This is like an 80yr old coming a very close second to in a race against Usain Bolt. Yes it's not first place, but Holy shit would it be impressive.

Yes the revisions, but also yes to no major release, no price drop, a new ps on the horizon and being in its 6th year.



Whoever said life to be like a box of chocolates clearly didn't know what he was talking about. 

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.

PS4 is selling amazingly, there's no doubt about that, but I think PS5 is still too far off to really be hurting its sales. I don't think that will happen until PS5 is properly revealed most likely in the first half of next year.



Look, don't get me wrong, PS4's performance relative to its age is stellar.

But reading the responses I wondered if I'd misread the numbers, it just genuinely seemed like the kind of reaction I'd expect from a week where PS4 took the top spot.

Possibly I'm making too big a deal out of it, it just struck me as really odd.



Hmm, I smell Salt in here.
Facts are facts.
PS4 is the best selling console of 2019 so far. Without a permanent price cut, without an E3 presence(unlike Nintendo who had a terrific E3 ), without great software this year, with next Playstation officially confirmed and being in its 6th year.
So yeah, people will talk about PS4 for being a close second this week.

Xbox1 Dominates the 3DS with 2:1 sales for yet another week! I just don't think Nintendo has any answers to their domination there.

@COKTOE It's not actually a new low, that came a few weeks ago http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=240644&page=1 and has yet to be dipped below. It's just been hovering over the 40k each week since this one though.



Oh geeze. Thanks for the correction. Surprised I would forget that as it was so recent.

@Sogreblute. Yes, I am aware PS4 wasn't released on August 8.
