Sad BF numbers confirm 3DS finally reached PSV in teh Land of teh Undead, as I predicted, although I really thought it would have had at least another decent BF and Xmas period, and the actual undeath would have happened next January.

Eh there was no reason for 3DS to do decent this holiday, the last 1st party title was released over 8 months ago and 2DS has been $79 with a game bundled for about 2 years.

Basically no new games to attract new gamers and it's been at impulse buy pricing for so long that everybody who wants one has one.

Good point, actually I simply expected stores to make very attractive BF and Xmas 3DS bundles both to clear stocks and to have another good low budget offer for customers, well, on a budget. Maybe I expected even Ninty to do them and clear its own stocks, as now NS is very well launched beyond any possible doubt, so the quite long and successful 3DS story could end this Winter without any risk, simplifying logistics (and dropping a little its cost too, that never hurts) from next Spring on.

Ps4 numbers are monstrous considering its in its penultimate year and with no real price cut its impressive. I predict March 2020 it gets a massive price cut and slim v2. 0

Cant wait for Ps5. Regarding xbox one they had a £99 console



...not much time to post anymore, used to be awesome on here really good fond memories from VGchartz...

PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - PC: Skeeuk

PS4 was $199 with 3 big games thrown in (Horizon, TLOU, GoW) for Black Friday. Even discounting the value of the games that $100 off its usual price.

Now that Switch Lite is out to fill the niche as an affordable portable, 3DS really has no purpose any more. Nintendo will want to move people onto the new platform it's profiting more from.

Wasn't European number for Nintendo Switch too low in that chart?
335,304

The actual sales number for Nintendo Switch BF in the UK and Spain is 170k and already more than half of that number without the biggest European market "France" for the Nintendo system and Germany the same as the UK in term of market share for Nintendo system.

I think the actual number would be closer to 500k than 300k.



Should I sell my PS4 and add another 200$ to buy RX 5700 XT or don't sell PS4 and get a Switch Lite hmm...

My good old GTX 970 is crying running RDR2

Yeah it should be quite a bit higher based on UK+Spain

Sell the PS4 and get both ^^

Seriously though, if you're still gaming on your PS4, then I'd keep the console, at least for now.

It sounds like you still really enjoy your PS4 so I'd say hang onto it, in the past I have almost always regretted selling/giving away consoles. 

I would definitely recommend picking up a Switch, it has accumulated quite a strong lineup of exclusives by this point.
