Seeing New 3ds xl rankings, which warms my heart, I guess that people agree with Nintendo that switch isn't replacing 3DS...

Announcements of new systems don't ever have any visible effect on sales of systems they're replacing. However, the actual release of new systems does have an effect that is almost always immediate and pronounced. DS sales were already declining before the 3DS came out, but started to absolutely crater once the 3DS was released. The DS wasn't doing amazing when it first came out, but even then it caused GBA sales to have a noticeably sharp dive. We see the same pattern in other product lines besides Nintendo handhelds. Perhaps the only time a new system didn't have an immediate effect on its predecessor's sales was the PS3 in the U.S., and that might have had something to do with the $500 price tag at launch. It wasn't until the PS3 was reduced to $400 that the PS2's decline in sales started to experience a pronounced acceleration. But that was one exception for a rule that seems to be true in every other case.

Since the Switch doubles as both a home console and a handheld, and will likely be marketed as such (the reveal video even focused more on its portability than the fact that it's also playable at home on your TV), I expect it to cause an immediate and pronounced YoY drop in 3DS sales. The 3DS is doing fine now, but it could very well be a last gasp. The 3DS will almost certainly be down quite a bit in 2017, by holiday 2018 it will likely be dead in the water sales-wise, and it could be discontinued before the end of 2019.

Exactly, however I wouldn't call the drop of gba sharp though because it was already falling, maybe ds release accelerated the decline.

DS lite killed gba in 2006, fat ds only sold 18-19m between 2004-2006, and that's why I'm always   saying that ds didn't cut gba's life in 2004...

As for the announcements...

Excuse me shadow, but Nintendo announcing the release date of NX back in March, affected severely wii u sales later , since people had NX on their minds as the wii u successor.

Wii u was slightly yoy down in Jan-Feb-Mar, but after the announcement, it started having big yoy/mom drops.... That's not coincidence!

People still talk about Titanfall 2 as a big release, are serius guys?

After those UK sales i would say is pretty obvius Titanfall 2 is a niche game.

Just because it underperformed at release does not mean it wasn't meant to be a major product. Nothing about TF2 was niche. Especially being a more robust production than the first game.

It is incredible that the Xbox One sold the most only in the 6 year and outsold the PS3 by 600k+ in 1 month.

I think that the PS4 will be able to surpass Xbox 360's sales but it will be hard to surpass Wii's sales.

YOu mean  in November  or ww? November  could be tricky  for  ps4 against  wii.

 

Ww ltd will be almost  certain 

We only have reliable data from the USA. It will be easier for the PS4 to outsell the Wii Worldwide, The Wii  was more popular in the USA. I don't think that the PS4 or any Playstation console will be able to get 50%+ of its sales from the USA, it is very popular worldwide.

Losing 4 months matters much less than you're suggesting. It's one territory, where they'll remain ahead, and earn back much of what they lost in said months with the release of the Pro in November and Final Fantasy in December.

I know FF is huge and will sell well but do people really think its going to push ps4s that much? I mean it seems many think this game is on another level in terms of system sellers. 

 

Ps4 going to do well with the pro and cuz of the holidays. FF will help but i dont think it will be the reason whg ps4s sell x amount of hw imo

This is the first Final Fantasy mainline game since 2009.

Niche? That's really not true and I bet the game will have some good legs due to the reviews and customer reception.

It Sold less than Games like The Order 1886, and is just Over what Street Fighter V sold first week in UK.

I Said all.

Really ? How is that even possible ? Street Fighter did not sold very well and was avaliable for only 1 system.

What does that have to do with previous post? Is FFXV suppose to sell higher because its last mainline game was in 2009? Its western style open world is much more of a logic reason itll sell in the west than that reasoning.

 

I mean with your post that would mean a ton of ps4s are going to sell when the game launches in japan (since japan is the only region were ps4 doesnt dominate like rest of the world)
