I think I should have made clear that often times, I see some impressed by the PS4's sales. One can see this going through http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=239744.
For whatever reason however, no potential caveats are ever brought up. I have yet to see any mention of PS4 and PS4 Pro sales figures being lumped in together for example.
Because it's not worth mentioning. People didnt seperate 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS or the "New" models when discussing sales or any other console with multiple skus.
As for NES/SNES Classic, the $60-80 devices to play 25-35 year old games arent stealing sales from the $300 new console with brand new $60 games.
When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
