Switch up 32% yoy and counting.

I actually calculated Switch up 34% at this point.  That's nuts and amazing.  2019 was still getting a Smash Bros boost in January.  Each week in January 2019 that wore off some, but this year Switch just has solid and powerful base sales.  Switch sales are still accelerating and at a phenomenal rate at that!

Switch has already beaten ps4’s best year in 2019. So, it’s how far higher can it go at this point. 

PS4 2017 had a great year, but a pretty weak holiday season. Switch will beat PS4 2017 in the end for sure due to this, but January through October, PS4 would be very competitive.

Yeah, but Switch 2019 was already better than PS4 2017. And as we see, 2020 is very promising to be even better. Would be interesting to compare with Wii and PS2 best years. I don’t have the numbers, but I think both these consoles had some insane numbers in some point of their lifetime. Especially PS2



 

Damn, Switch and PS4 are really dusting Xbox One. 3 and 4 times the sales. People keep saying Switch isn’t in competition with the other two but are they sure it’s not Xbox One that’s not in competition with the other two?

Do we have any weekly numbers of the PS2 or just by quarters?

If not, that would only leave us with the Wii, and I wanted to give the Switch some competition from another side. DS was too big during it's heyday to pull against the Switch, which really just left me with the PS4's best year.

It's mostly correct for PS4 (well, 3.6 times Xbox One) but Switch is over 7.1x times the sales for Xbox One.

Looks like Xbox one is not passing 50m



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

It's certainly a tougher milestone now than expected just a year or two ago.  If Xbox X Series eats into Xbox One too much, it probably won't hit 50 million.  If the new console doesn't take off too hot and/or Xbox One gets some steep discounts, it should be able to limp pass 50 million...but just barely.

Which is the reason for the "huh, what?".

Iirc, PS2 had some great years, but nothing on the level of the Wii during its peak (or the NDS for that matter). PS2's strength was largely in its insane stamina and consistency, whilst the Wii had a short, but explosive, burst. 

i really wish we had more detailed info on past generations tho



Bet with flashfire926: I think switch will win November NPD, and he thinks xbox one will win (if ps4 is victorious, it's a draw). Loser has to state that they lost in the signature for some time.
